To celebrate our Cult Brand of the Month, we wanted to introduce you to the brand's brilliant skin care "smoothies" which allows you to forget the fuss of {layering your products} correctly and blend your very own unique smoothie of {skin care} nutrition that's 100% tailored to your skin and its needs.

{Drunk Elephant} thinks of our AM and PM skin care routines as a range of ever-changing “smoothies.” Similarly to how you choose ingredients for your morning smoothie depending on what your body’s craving or lacking in, you should be picking skin care products for your AM and PM smoothies based on how your skin feels - listen to your skin, it doesn’t always need the same thing.


Unlike most products which you have to carefully select so they work in sync with each other to avoiding unwanted pilling (this is when your skin care or {make up} rolls up into little balls as you layer), Drunk Elephant's range doesn't do that!

Because the brand's is bio-available and highly absorbable while also being 100% free from silicones, heavy oils and waxes (which normally to interfere with absorption), you can smoothie any Drunk Elephant serum, moisturiser or oil in the palm of your hand and apply them all at the same time. This excludes the zinc in the SPF Umbra formulas, which will always form a protective barrier on top ie. the final step in your skin care routine.

If you’re new to the range, why not try {The Littles Kit 4.0} - it features eight minis of the brand's bestselling products and is the perfect way to try your hand at smoothie-ing your very own custom smoothies for the first time. Better acquainted with Drunk elephant formulas? Get to know some of Team Cult Beauty's favourite smoothie recipes below for miraculous results...


Uniting Drunk Elephant's heavy-hitting {A-Passioni Retinol Cream} treatment + intensely hydrating {B-Hydra Hydration Serum} + the brightening and antioxidant-rich goodness of {C-Firma Day Serum}, this ABC Smoothie is must for fighting the signs of ageing all while keeping your skin in tip-top condition. Want a bit of added sun-kissed colour? Why not add a pump of {D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sun Drops} into the mix for a radiant complexion. Smoothie this recipe up and massage across skin then...

Finish up with the brand's ultimate protection in the form of the {Umbra Sheer} or {Umbra Tinte} - a must if you're going to wear retinol during the day!


A potent pairing for every sleeping beauty, this Oh What A Night Smoothie unites the results-driven trio of {T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum} for all your exfoliating needs with {B-Hydra Hydration Serum} for skin-quenching and calming benefits plus, the ultra-luxe and ceramide-rich goodness of {Lala Retro Whipped Cream Crème}. If you like to use an oil at night why not switch out Lala retro for the brand's cult classic {Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil} instead?

There's a whole host of smoothie recipes you can try out or concoct yourself - just remember to put your skin's needs front and center while getting experimental in the bathroom. We cannot wait to see which smoothies you try!
