Why Tiffany Masterson created Drunk Elephant (and the bronzing serum that sent TikTok wild)

In today’s episode, Kate is joined by Tiffany Masterson, founder and creative director of cult-status skincare brand Drunk Elephant. A mother of four from Houston, Texas, Tiffany set out on a mission to understand and resolve her own skincare concerns – discovering six ingredients at the root of her issues, and minimal products without at least one of them. So, she made the products herself and the rest – a hand-drawn elephant and a TikTok-viral bronzing serum included – is beauty history. Hit play for the full and fascinating story.
