Cult skincare brand Drunk Elephant is coming to the UK high street! The brand is launching in Boots very soon – and we can't wait.
The brand is hugely popular in the US for its skin health-boosting products, and now Brits will be able to shop for them right on their doorsteps.
So when will we be able to get our hands on the brand at Boots? The British health and beauty retailer announced it would be closing 48 of its stores last year (you can find out which Boots stores are closing down here) but luckily, there's plenty of branches still open across the UK.
When will Drunk Elephant launch at Boots?
Drunk Elephant will drop at Boots in a week's time – on 9th March.
It’ll be available to shop online and in-store, and there will be more than 30 lovely products from the iconic skincare brand to browse through and treat yourself to.
So keep an eye out on 9th March for the drop!
You can shop Drunk Elephant online currently or in Space NK stores, but the launch in Boots represents the first time the skincare brand will be widely available in the UK.
But which products are must-haves come 9th March?
What Drunk Elephant products should I buy?
The brand is hugely popular in the States, and their products are much-loved because of their ‘clean’ active-ingredient driven formulations. Their products aren't cheap, but sit somewhere in the mid-higher price range. And they’ve recently expanded into haircare too.
Fans also adore the funky neon-coloured packaging – with a different colour to be found on top of almost every product.
The brand caused a huge stir earlier this year with the launch of their now cult product the Sukari Babyfacial mask – an acid treatment designed to resurface the skin and leave it clear and glowing. So that’s definitely one to pop on your list when you head over to Boots!
But which other products should we also be buying?
Boots beauty specialist Selin Mustafa recommends the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum 30ml, which retails for £67. She said, “This vitamin C serum is packed with powerful antioxidants and essential nutrients such as pumpkin extract which will help dissolve dead skin cells and leave you with brighter and firmer skin.”
Selin also suggested that you might want to try the C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream (£54), especially if you're looking for “stronger and firmer looking skin around the eye area.”
She said, “The C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream is rich and restorative, featuring a brightening combination of eight peptides, five forms of vitamin C and cucumber extract.”
And of course everyone needs a good retinol cream in their stash, and Drunk Elephant’s sounds like a great option.
“The Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream (£62) will help restore bounce and even the skin tone and texture," Selin said. "It’s also full of fruit extracts with amazing skin benefits."
We're sold! See you on 9th March...
