Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum Review Conclusion
Initially, this product does seem like an alright option because the manufacturer does provide a confident return policy and it has some good ingredients, although, it is concerning that it lacks effective clinically proven ingredients. This product is also not suitable for all skin types because it can cause skin irritations which is disappointing and there are numerous negative customer reviews available on the manufacturer’s website that confirm it as a harsh product. A large number of customer reviews complain that this product caused extreme dryness and skin burns and many others express that it was not effective at all. We recommend other similar products available from leading brands as a more suitable option.
