Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream Review

About Lala Retro

Lala Retro Whipped Cream is an anti-aging moisturizing cream produced for people with a dry skin type. It is a non-sticky formulation with a soft consistency that gives your skin a nice touch.

The Drunk Elephant Vitamin C is a combination of 6 nourishing African oils extracted from Marula, mongongo, baobab, Kalahari melon, ximenia, and passion fruit. They are all rich in antioxidants and all-natural nutrients your skin needs to be healthy in and out. Other essences that constitute Lala Retro are plantain extract, fermentoil green tea seed, and sodium hyaluronate.

Our skin needs proper nutrition and that is exactly what Lala Retro offers you. This cream is just one of the quality products emanating from marula fruit oil, which is rich in linoleic acid and omega oleic acid. These essential fatty acids are responsible for providing your skin the nourishment to treat dryness.

What does Lala do to your skin?

  • Nourishes
  • Moisturizes
  • Rejuvinates
  • Brightens
  • Supplies Antioxidants

Lala Retro moisturizes the skin with the help of mongongo, baobab, Kalahari melon, and ximenia oils that boost and lubricates the skin all day long. Applying the cream makes the skin hydrated and prevents scaling or flaking.

What causes this flaky effect is our skin’s worst enemy- the sun.

Too much exposure to sunlight can dry the skin out.

It’s a good thing that Lala has a high vitamin C content which compensates the loss of moisture due to heat and pollutants from the environment. It maintains the proper vitamin C concentration in the skin so it gets moisturized all the time.

Lala Retro rejuvenates the skin. How?

Kalahari melon oil that is present in Lala Retro whipped cream is very light oil making the cream absorbed by the skin easily. Then, it does the repair. It starts by revitalizing the skin restoring its vigor and youthful glow. Omega 6 is an essential ingredient to rebuild the skin’s layers.

The result:

It promotes a smoother and younger complexion. You could bring back the lively ageless skin everyone always wants to have.

Lala Retro brightens the skin. Passion fruit is abundant in the nutrients needed to enhance your skin’s general appearance. With the help of plantain extract and other substances, they take back the radiance of your skin by erasing the blemishes and reducing the look of fine lines.

The cream is also loaded with antioxidants. The role of antioxidants is highly important because it gives your skin the ultimate protection it needs.

Protection from what? Protection from harmful elements around us. Antioxidants fight free radicals that cause skin irritation or inflammation. 

Once you use Lala Retro cream, you will have the barrier against the harsh effects of the environment. If the skin is attacked, it promotes cell circulation to combat scarring or the appearance of wrinkles.

Antioxidants also pave the way to skin elasticity. The benefit is firmness and even skin tone.

What is not included in Lala Retro?

Drunk Elephant makes sure that Lala Retro doesn’t contain any harsh substances that can cause serious damage to your skin. Therefore, it carefully chose the ingredients it would use to perfect this cream.

Lala Retro doesn’t contain any of the following:

  • Essential oils
  • Drying alcohols
  • Silicones
  • Chemical Screens
  • Fragrance/ Dyes
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)

These ingredients may not be suitable to be used as skincare products formula and may even cause or worsen irritation to sensitive skin.

So, always check the ingredients once you buy a beauty product and find out how they could affect your skin when used further.

Enjoy Using Lala Retro

There’s always a touch of excitement once you bought a new cosmetic product and use it for the first time. Of course! Because you can’t wait to see how it makes alluring changes.

Now, let’s get started with Lala.

Lala is stored in an easy-pump container for convenient use.

After a refreshing bath, dry yourself and apply Lala Retro evenly onto your skin. You can also use it anytime you need its moisturizing effect.

And here’s another helpful fact:

You can enhance Lala Retro by mixing it with any of Drunk Elephant serum or facial just like the revolutionary C-Firma and the refreshing B-Hydra serum.

For instance, blending a tinge of B-Hydra Serum to Lala will make a supple cream that encourages more nourishment for your dry skin. It’s time to enliven your lifeless dull skin. Enjoy Lala’s moisturizing effect throughout the day.


  • Long-lasting moisturizing effect
  • Brightens and promotes skin firmness

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Review

About T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial

Sukari Babyfacial is an at-home facial mask for all skin types. It is enriched with 25% AHA and 2% BHA.

Some examples of Alpha Hydroxy Acid or AHA are lactic acid and glycolic acid, which act as major exfoliators. On the other hand, BHA or Beta hydroxyl acid which is salicylic acid works as a cleanser.

With the presence of glycolic acid, you may fear that it will cause facial peels or other skin negative reactions.

But with the help of other gentler acids, the mixture is being balanced to accomplish effectiveness without compromising the skin health.

With the combined forces of other natural formulas, this mask will take care of your sensitive face with a pH level of 3.4 to 3.6 which is a healthy level, and strong enough to fight bacteria and other environmental pollutants.

To give you a clue, here are other Sukari babyfacial’s key ingredients: gram pea flour, matcha, milk, apple, pumpkin, pomegranate, and cactus extracts.

Also, antioxidant-rich oils such as passion fruit seed and virgin marula oils with niacinamide and sodium hyaluronate.

Sukari is fragrant-free. It is a fact that by using fragrance ingredients into a skincare product causes sensitization. The skin, no matter what the type is, becomes highly sensitive and may not be able to counteract harsh substances. Sukari uses no fragrance but only the friendly scents of the natural extracts in the mask.

What does Sukari Babyfacial do to your skin?

  • Exfoliates
  • Unclogs pores
  • Evens skin tone
  • Brightens
  • Protects

Exfoliation is the job of the acids present in Sukari, namely glycolic, tartaric, lactic, and citric acids. This combination of acids maximizes the exfoliation process up to the adjacent part of the pores to completely get rid of the dead cells.

Our skin keeps on reproducing new cells as part of its life cycle. The cells move through the skin and when they reach the outer layer, they start to die. In this protective layer, sweat, excessive sebum, and dead cells are located. 

Dead skin cells gather in the pores and cause popping. It results in the appearance of flaky skin and dry patches.

When the skin reveals new cells, dead skin cells have to be removed and that’s where exfoliation happens.

Once dead skin cells are trapped in the skin, it will cause whiteheads, blackheads, and other impurities. To avoid these problems, Sukari mask gently cleanses up clogged pores deeply removing dirt, toxins, and debris leaving it fresh and clean.

One of the main properties of Sukari is to promote new cells allowing better and quicker renewal of the skin.

It evens skin tone by erasing the dark patches and spots that cause irregularities. The babyfacial mask is responsible for making the skin smoother in texture and color giving a babyface complexion. This can be made possible by the ample moisture and nourishment it gives. A hydrated skin always looks firm and wrinkle-free by restoring the lost water and keeping it rejuvenated all the time.

You would never imagine having a dull-looking face anymore! It brightens your overall appearance. Sukari soothes redness and other unnecessary flushes on your skin revealing only a fair tone.

Your friends may not believe how radiant your skin has become with this gentle and effective mask.

Finally, we want to protect our beautiful skin from harmful elements in our surroundings. It doesn’t mean we will just stay home in our bedroom to keep protected. 

But, we could still enjoy our daily life and do the usual routine as well as make our skin ready to defend itself.


Sukari Babyfacial is the answer. It is formulated with pomegranate extract, passionfruit seed, virgin marula oil, and other extracts that are rich in antioxidants to help defend your skin cells against breakouts and damage caused by free radicals and other pollutants.

This defense property of Sukari makes your skin ready to combat any stressors it may encounter anywhere.

A Weekly Treat from Sukari Babyfacial

Not only we choose the best ingredients for our skincare regimen, but also we take the initiative to learn the correct way of using the product because we want to greatly benefit from it and to achieve its efficiency.

Normally, a face mask should be applied 1 to 3 times a week. There are also daily face masks.

Use Sukari Babyfacial mask just once a week. To begin, clean skin and put a proper amount of mask onto your face and neck until all necessary areas are covered.

Let a thin layer of mask stay on your skin for 20 minutes. There’s no point in trying to put on a lot of cream since it doesn’t intensify the advantages but just waste it.

After 20 minutes, wash it off with warm water. To get optimal results, after masking apply Virgin Marula Oil.

You would love this weekly cleansing and exfoliating.


Sukari Babyfacial is not advisable to be used by breastfeeding women and during pregnancy. Consult your doctor when you’re at either of these stages and want to try some cosmetic products.


  • Exfoliates dead cells and clogged pores
  • Brightens and evens skin tone
  • Defends the skin from aging factors


  • May feel a slight tingle during use

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Review​ Verdict:

T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial is a non-fragrant mask created to carefully exfoliate dead skin cells and clogged pores giving a smooth youthful glow. The mask contains an enormous amount of natural ingredients to provide the skin with proper nutrition and moisture it needs to stay young and beautiful.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum Review

T.L.C Framboos is a lightening night serum that purifies the skin while you sleep. It is enriched with 12% AHA and 1% salicylic acid.

Basically, AHAs may cause too excessive exfoliation overtime. But it is a major element to turn over skin cells and eliminate acne and treat inflammation.

So, with a very controlled amount of AHA and with proper formulation of fruit extracts and natural oils.

It is designed to be effective but not harsh to the skin. It is strategically produced to be safe and with the suitable pH level of 3.8 to 4.0.

Other formulas include raspberry fruit, cactus, horse chestnut, white tea leaf, and yeast extracts. It is also blended with galactoarabinan, sodium hyaluronate, and phytostem buddleja davidii meristem cell.

How does T.L.C Framboos benefit your skin?

  • Exfoliates
  • Cleans Pores
  • Soothes and rehydrates
  • Firms the skin
  • Supplies antioxidants

It’s the AHAs that exfoliate your skin by eliminating stubborn dead cells that cause uneven and rough texture. T.L.C Framboos is blended with the perfect ingredient to wash away excess sebum from the skin while deeply cleansing the pore areas leaving them fresh and ready to absorb nutrients to improve the skin’s appearance. AHAs also reduce the look of hyperpigmentation.

There is a very minimal amount of salicylic acid to give a gentle unclogging of the pores. This is not a menial job but a huge one. Clean pores reduce the tendency to develop more skin problems such as acne and other impurities.

As we know, accumulated oil and dead skin cells when kept in the pores for a long time destroy the surface balance of the skin opacity.

Some clinical treatments result in enlarged pores and dullness. But using this Glycolic night serum, you are improving the transparency of your skin without causing another trouble.

Another thing is, it soothes and rehydrates.

We all want to choose the best and skin-friendly skincare products that won’t cause redness, rashes, or any irritation. Always check the ingredients and don’t forget to make a quick skin test to be sure. Various skin types have different reactions to certain chemicals and that is one major thing we have to pay attention to.

When you look at your face from a distance, you may see plain. But, try to look closely and find out one thing that causes redness is broken capillaries. What are these? They are swollen blood vessels that could be more visible once you stretch your skin. They are usually located on your cheeks and chin. It could occur at any age range due to some factors such as excessive sun damage or pollutants.

Redness and the so-called spider veins are very irritating and could affect even our confidence.

Raspberry fruit extract is one formula in this serum that solves these issues. It has a soothing characteristic that reduces redness and damaged skin. Cactus, horse chestnut, white tea leaf, and yeast extracts are a powerful blend that contributes to the same solution. They are so comforting and provide protection against further damage.

T.L.C Framboos firms the skin.

Sagging is the opposite of firmness. Sodium hyaluronate intensifies hydration providing the skin enough water content to function carefully. Once the skin is healthy, it will produce an ample amount of collagen and elastin to make the skin firm.

Lastly, but as important as the ones we already talked about, is with the help of antioxidants. They are the skin’s shield.

Most of T.L.C Framboos ingredients are high in antioxidants, which is very crucial in providing nutrition the skin needs to defend itself against unstable substances or environmental stressors that could inflict damage.

Therefore, if the skin is protected, it will look bright and lively all the time. If the skin brightens, there will be no trace of wrinkles or fine lines on the surface.

Those are the amazing results of T.L.C Framboos. Let this glycolic night serum repair your skin overnight and wake up the next day renewed.

How to use the T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum:

  • Apply the serum to your face, neck, and other areas you desire to treat. If you are a first-timer, you’d better take it slowly.
  • Allow your skin to be familiar with the product by using it once every two nights. If you’re not using tonight, apply Virgin Marula Oil.
  • Carefully follow the instructions for using. If you experience serious skin trouble, cease using it and find medical help right away.

During initial applications, there will be a stinging effect on your skin. But don’t freak out. It’s normal.

Time will come that your skin will be addicted to it, as well as you.


Gain more benefits by adding some Virgin Marula Oil to your glycolic night serum for better nourishment.


  • Gentle exfoliation and deep pore cleansing
  • Soothes redness and dilated veins
  • Proper hydration and protection for refined skin


  • With stinging effect
  • Have to put on sunscreen

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum Review​ Verdict:

Drunk Elephant Baby Juju + Baby Pekee Travel Duo Review

Juju and Pekee

Baby Juju and Baby Pekee are your mini travel friends.

Feel the same comfort you have at home when you take these small-sized bars anywhere.

Juju is enriched with refined exfoliant for sensitive to normal skin and Pekee is responsible for a clean and soft skin.

They are a perfect combination for your skin health. What makes them really a unique duo is the mild formulation they have.

Juju bar contains heilmoor clay, virgin marula oil, bamboo powder, and fruit extracts from acai and goji. Pekee is enhanced with blueberry extract, virgin marula oil, and honey.

JuJu Bar Benefits:

  • Exfoliates
  • Wash off impurities
  • Moisturizes and smoothens

It’s not actually bad to have oil in the face since it adds moisture and protects the skin. Our skin naturally produces sebum overnight when skin repair activity happens. That’s the reason why our face gets oily the moment we wake up.

But, too much oil is a problem!

There are different ways to know if you have extremely oily skin. For instance, you may find your face shiny even a little while after washing up, or you have especially visible and enlarged pores that are prone to pimples.

Fight greasiness by using Juju exfoliating bar with a sufficient amount of pH level of 6.34 to guarantee appropriate exfoliation without depriving the skin with enough oil and hydration it needs.

It is fragrant-free. Adding fragrance is another factor that may lead to a chemical reaction of ingredients that may be harsh to the skin.

It is soap-free. It doesn’t mean it won’t lather. It still produces bubbles with the help of an emulsifier to wash away fats and oils for extra clean effect without the dryness of soap.

Juju bar strips off impurities.

The soft suds effectively cleanse the skin like soap does. It breaks up fat build-up on the surface of the skin rinsing dirt and oil away.

Our skin appearance has a lot to say about its condition in and out. If you have polluted skin, it is reflected by dullness, greasiness, or dryness. It should not happen. Juju bar has it all. It has the power of heilmoor clay that eliminates toxic substances from the skin and thermal clay that spontaneously act to achieve the tone and vitality of an ageless skin.

Juju moisturizes and smoothens the skin surface. With a speedy absorption rate of virgin marula oil, it enlivens the skin by restoring its natural glow.

We are all scared to loss our skin density. But with the help of this Juju bar, we can now enjoy young smooth skin that is healthy inside and out.

Pekee Bar Benefits:

  • Cleanses and tones
  • Moisturizes and firms
  • Enhances complexion

Pekee Bar cleanses and tones the skin.

It acts as a cleanser when you use it to remove makeup or dirt after a long stressful day. It is also advisable to clean your face in the morning to refresh the skin by rinsing away the toxic substances it releases over the night.

You don’t need to use a separate product to do skin toning because Pekee also tones the skin. Although toning comes after cleansing, Pekee has the ability to do the finishing touch by removing the dormant dirt left that could not be washed off by a regular cleanser.

Pekee moisturizes the skin.

With a pH level of 6.51, it leaves the skin nourished and hydrated by maintaining its proper acidity and defense. 

Blueberry extract, virgin marula oil, and honey balance the pH level and promote moisture absorption to comfort the skin.

There are many means to improve skin clarity. An even complexion means a healthy skin. And that is exactly what Pekee could give you. Its gentle ingredients will help you experience that naturally even and smooth skin.

Juju and Pekee Alliance

Many things exist because of something else. One could stand alone but would always need a companion. That may be true for Juju and Pekee.

Here are some suggestions to fully benefit from these amazing bars.

Juju is recommended to be used 2 to 3 times a week while Pekee could be used every day, either in the morning or evening.

Just as the regular soap, wet the bar and your face. Make creamy foam on your hand and massage it on your face. You may apply it on your neck and chest as well.

Have a clean and fresh skin with Juju and Pekee.


  • Compatible formulation
  • Gentle and effective

Drunk Elephant Baby Juju + Baby Pekee Travel Duo Review​​ Verdict:
