Product Highlights
“By far the best cleanser I have ever used! My face is very sensitive and a lot of cleansers really dry my skin out but this does not! I use it in the morning and at night and my skin loves it! Doesn't dry out my skin and my face feels super clean after using this! It doesn't leave the tight feeling that some cleaners do. Really nice light scent too.  ” in 21 reviews

After piquing my interest in the hype of Drunk Elephant products referenced in all those skincare articles, I finally had the chance to add their jelly cleanser to my rotation of Revision cleansers. This was my first Drunk Elephant product and my first jelly cleanser. I received this in the Sephora birthday gift package and was so excited to finally try this brand, charmed by their cute packaging. It smelled great and felt lovely on the skin. Right after cleansing I felt like the cleanser did well removing any and all makeup, and even made my skin feel softer than my normal cleanser. I had high expectations for this brand and wanted to love it more than I actually did. After about a week of using, I had dry patches on my upper cheeks— something that never ever happens. Even in the winter. Even during my introduction of adding retinol to my routine. I made no other changes to my routine at this point. My upper cheek zone is never oily, never dry. I typically do fine with just my hyaluronic moisturizer after double cleansing+Retinol treatment at night. I added another moisturizing layer (the drunk elephant moisturizer that came with) while still using this cleanser, and the rough patches went away after 2 days and have not shown back up since. I will say this did seem to help clear some whiteheads that had been hanging on around my jawline well, just not well enough to look over its drying effects. This works well enough to where I will continue to use it in my rotation until empty, but I can’t see myself ever purchasing. I am not big on heavy moisturizing as I don’t like the sticky weighing down feeling of multiple layers on my face before bed, and I’m afraid this cleanser is just a bit too harsh to not require heavy moisturizing for my skin.

Drunk Elephant is an adorable high end skincare line with an impeccably flawless reputation for Devine products, in my opinion. Part of me wonders if I'm attracted to Drunk Elephant because of the quality of the product or the attractiveness of it's packaging ... Either way their products seem to be in love with my skin so I guess this relationship works! This DE Beste No. 9 Jelly cleanser is fantastic, as far as a cleanser, only. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have any moisturizing characteristics that would possibly leave you going to bed or starting your day with one less step in your regime, nonetheless, it works great. I have had significantly less breakouts and blemishes since beginning use and although my skin does feel slightly tight and dry after using, I just apply my favorite gel moisturizer to diminish that uneasy, tight feeling. I highly recommend this Drunk Elephant Beste No 9 Jelly Cleanser if you are trying to find yourself a new facial skin cleanser that truly works and is healthy for your skin... Not to mention the DE packaging is the cutest everrr!

I received a trial size of this and a moisturizer from Sephora on my birthday and it came with this cleanser. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with both products but I truly did! This cleanser was my favorite or the two and I actually went back to Sephora to purchase the full size after trying this. Normally I use the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser both in the morning and evening and it’s been my go to cleanser for a while now. I have combination skin more on the oily side that’s extremely acne prone and it’s hard to find a cleanser that both deeply cleanses my skin but doesn’t strip it of moisture. This works perfectly at both giving my skin a deep cleanse without stripping it and leaving it feeling dry. I could see this working for all skin types but I’m not sure if it would remove makeup since I no longer wear any. Would definitely recommend. But if it’s out of your budget I’d recommend trying the Neutrogena Naturals cleanser!

This cleanser is very gentle on skin, it does not feel too drying or leave skin feeling tight after cleansing. It has a gel-like texture that lathers well and massages into skin comfortably. A plus point for sensitive skin users is that it is completely fragrance and essential oil free thus lowering any potential chance of irritation. Cleanses away impurities effectively. It is pretty hydrating considering the purpose of the product is to cleanse. It is supposed to be a one-step cleanser that can effectively remove makeup, excess oil and impurities. Me, being slightly obsessed with a thorough cleanse, I am not one to skip double cleansing when wearing makeup so I can’t speak to its ability in removing makeup.

I’m giving a lot of points mostly for the lack of fragrance, the ingredients that don’t break out my skin and the way it lathers up pretty well even though it’s a jelly cleanser. That being said, when I first wash my face with this, it feels like it cleaned my face without stripping it and making it feel tight and squeaky clean, which isn’t something I would want. However within 10-15mins, my skin would start to feel really dry if I didn’t follow up with a moisturizer right after. Which doesn’t really matter to me since I usually only use cleanser at night and the instructions on it also indicate I should stick to using it at night as part of my routine. Honestly I don’t see a difference in how the perform between this and my $5 cetaphil cleanser except for the big difference in price.

Drunk Elephant Beste Jelly Cleanser has a lovely bouncy jelly texture. It foams up on my face and I feel my skin is completely clean after. I’m not sure how good it is at removing makeup because I usually use my makeup eraser and some sort of cleansing oil as a first step. I love hay it’s fragrance free and gentle on the skin. I do feel my skin is slightly dried out after using this - but I’ve never used a cleanser that doesn’t clean my skin without drying it out at least a little bit. Over all I really enjoy this cleanser and would recommend it! I received this product complimentary from Influenster.

I received a sample of this from Sephora for my birthday about a year ago. I recently flew to Nashville and needed a travel size cleanser. Upon getting to my hotel, I realized I had forgotten makeup remover wipes (I don’t usually use wipes because they cause me to breakout but necessary for the trip). I stumbled into the shower and thought I could hopefully bum a makeup wipe off my roommate once getting some of the thicker foundation off in the shower. But once I came out all of my makeup was gone including my eye makeup that my usual (micellar water) does not scrub off. Shocked at how nice this product was and how genuinely clean my skin was without feeling harsh I will be purchasing more from this company.

I wasn't surprised that this product allow my face to feel clean without stripping the moisture...because of the high price tag. It is a gel product when you squeeze it out of the twist tube opening. Make sure your face is damp to get the foam effect when you lather it onto your face. This is good for my sensitive skin that's going through the motions during spring. My skin feels soft after drying. It does the job without making me feel like I have to grab another cleanser to finish. I'm not that excited about the ingredient list with glycerin and surfactants so this will not be a repurchase.

I love this gentle cleanser! I use it as a make-up remover and cleanser. It works wonderfully! I use about a dime size every morning and evening as I start my skin care regime. It does not lather like a soap, which I really like! It does a great job at removing dirt, makeup, impurities. Sometimes, I do a second rinse if I don't feel like everything gets picked up. My skin is combination and I feel it works great-whether my skin is feeling oily or dry or even irritated. Drunk Elephant just knew what they were doing when they created this product. Anyone can use it, regardless of skin type! Worth the buy and you get so much product!
