Beauty Review: Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream

Beauty Review: Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream

As all of you know, I love me some skincare and forever on the search for the next product with which I’ll fall in love. I’ve been using Drunk Elephant for a while and am a huge fan of their T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial and their Virgin Marula Luxury Oil (SO WORTH THE SPLURGE). I also love their serums: the C-Firma Day Serum and T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum (which I’m out off! Gasp!). This long intro is basically to say that when I heard of the new Protini Polypeptide Cream, I paid attention. Their Lala Retro Whipped Cream moisturizer is great, but this sounded even more up my alley, as it claims to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and signs of sun damage.

This protein moisturizer combines nine plant-derived peptide growth factors (moisturize, plump, firm and restore bounce), amino acids and natural plant extracts to improve tone, texture and firmness. It both strengthens and moisturizes your skin too.

Compared to Lala, this is a good moisturizer for those who love anti-aging properties—these proteins and peptides help restore collagen. Lala, on the other hand, is a good, creamy all-purpose moisturizer.

I’ve been using Protini for over two weeks now and I LOVE IT. For reference, my skin is dry to combination (thought it was oily for years, but was over-producing oil to compensate), but it can get greasy during the day. I like moisturizers to have some weight to it, but for day, they shouldn’t be too heavy. Protini (as well as the Lala) is a great balance of both and it melts right into the skin. Also, it’s formulated at a pH level of 4.0 (our skin’s natural pH is between 4.2 and 5.5), so it will keep your complexion happy and healthy.

Protini comes in an airtight, container with a press-down pump that dispenses the ideal amount, which is ideal for anti-contamination, plus you don’t want to use too much… it’s not cheap!

All in all, I can’t recommend Protini Polypeptide Cream highly enough, and for that matter, Drunk Elephant as a brand. I love that they blend the best of nature and science to develop products that work.
