What it is: An AHA/BHA night serum that resurfaces congested skin by lifting away dead skin cells to visibly improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.
Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily
Skincare Concerns: Fine Lines and Wrinkles, Pores, and Dullness
Formulation: Lightweight Serum
- T.L.C. FramboosTM AHA Blend: Resurfaces and exfoliates skin for a smoother-, more even-looking complexion.
- Salicylic Acid (BHA): Loosens sebum to unclog pores while soothing skin.
- Raspberry Fruit Extract: Rehydrates and soothes skin with antioxidants.
Ingredient Callouts: This product is vegan and cruelty-free.
What Else You Need to Know: With a blend of glycolic, tartaric, citric, and salicylic acids, T.L.C. FramboosTM delivers chemical exfoliation without dryness or sensitization, curbs excess oil, and reveals clarity and luminosity. It enhances the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption. It also has a pH of 3.5.
It’s free of essential oils, silicones, and fragrance.
Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of their formulations. The brand focuses on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support the skin’s acid mantle. All of their products are designed to be mixed together—that’s what Drunk Elephant calls making a smoothie. (This is true for all of their products except their sunscreen, Umbra, which sits on top of the skin, protecting it from UV damage.) The result is skin that is reset to its happiest, healthiest state.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation).
Clinical Results: In an independent consumer testing panel of 106 women age 25 to 55:
- 98% found skin was smoother
- 96% found skin was softer
- 93% found skin felt retexturized and refined
Clean at Sephora
Clean at Sephora is formulated without a list of over 50 ingredients, including sulfates (SLS and SLES), parabens, phthalates, and more. For the full list, check out the Ingredients tab.
-In the evening, apply to a clean, dry face (and even to the chest and backs of hands), avoiding the eye area.
-Mix with Virgin Marula Oil (sold separately) for a dose of moisture and barrier-boosting fatty acids.
-Note: Slight tingling may be experienced, particularly for the first few days of application. This typically dissipates as your skin becomes adjusted. Start slowly by using every other night.
-Tip: Also works incredibly well as a spot treatment!
-Use only as directed. Avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use immediately if irritation occurs and consult a physician. Use a sunscreen daily while using this product and for a week after ceasing use. Product’s contact with skin must be of limited frequency or duration.
-Tip: Try Drunk Elephant’s "Oh What a Night Smoothie" (sold separately) for smoother, hydrated, more radiant skin. In the palm of your hand mix one pump T.L.C. FramboosTM, one pump Lala RetroTM (sold separately), and one pump B-HydraTM (sold separately) and apply to skin.

About the Brand
Since 2012, Drunk Elephant has pioneered a skin- and hair-care philosophy that is as radical as it is simple. Get rid of anything that is irritating, sensitizing, disruptive, or inflammatory, and replace it with smart, biocompatible ingredients the skin recognizes and embraces. We call the culprits the Suspicious 6—essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS—and you will never find any of them in our line. Instead, we formulate our products with powerful, safe, biocompatible ingredients that bring skin and scalp back to their healthiest, most balanced, most radiant state. That’s our ingredient-elimination philosophy for a total skin reset.
