9 Best Drunk Elephant Dupes & Alternatives 2024

It’s no secret why so many are obsessed with Drunk Elephant products. From TikToks of the adolescent aftermath in Sephora aisles to #GRWM videos touting the skin care line, there’s no doubt that Drunk Elephant is the ‘it’ brand right now. Even Penelope Disick filmed a now-removed video using the popular products.

While anyone can use skin care products at any age, board-certified dermatologist Marisa Garshick, MD, FAAD, says younger kids and teens should stick to a simple beauty and skin care routine, like a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. “It’s best to avoid harsh scrubs or exfoliating products that can strip the skin of its natural oils and irritate the skin barrier,” Dr. Garshick tells Teen Vogue. She notes that skin care doesn’t need to be expensive to be effective. “There are many great products available at the drugstore.”

Esthetician Shani Darden echoes Dr. Garshick’s sentiment. “It’s great to get started with a skin care routine early on, but remember, less is more. I recommend keeping it simple. Using too many products on younger skin types can compromise the barrier and cause irritation,” she tells Teen Vogue. Dr. Garshick emphasizes that tweens and teens should avoid products intended for anti-aging, including those containing ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, and vitamin C, as they can be too harsh and irritating.

With prices ranging from $16 to $134 for Drunk Elephant products, it might also be better for your budget to invest in affordable Drunk Elephant dupes, which may work just as well (we’ve got some great bronzing drop dupes, too).
