Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream Review-
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
I had wanted to try out the protini cream from Drunk Elephant for a long time ever since I had the Lala retro cream but the price always put me off combined with the fact that it doesn’t have SPF. My bestie bought & sent it to me on my birthday so both me & my husband have been trying it out for more than a month.
What Drunk Elephant Says-
This silky water-gel moisturiser is the perfect defence against the signs of ageing – think of Protini as a powerful shot of protein powder for your skin, which helps to maintain collagen, encouraging its production and preventing its breakdown. Formulated with a complex of 9 signal peptides, pygmy waterlily stem cell extract, soybean folic acid ferment extract and acetyl glutamine, Drunk Elephant has, with this moisturiser, designed a powerhouse product that revives depleted and tired skin to its former glory. Watch as your complexion quickly becomes firmer, stronger and more hydrated. The airtight (and cute!) container also helps the formula to stay super-fresh.
- Acts to repair and rejuvenate the complexion
- Minimises the look of wrinkles, fine lines and areas of sun damage
- A pH level of 4.0 makes the cream extremely gentle on the skin
- Free from fragrance, silicones and essential oils
- A cruelty-free product
- Suitable for vegans
Price: 57 GBP for 50 ml in UK.
My take on the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream-
The packaging of all the DE creams are my favorite & I wish all the brands follow suit. The protini comes in a bright teal blue & white tub with a tight lid. The tub is airtight with a spring like base which you press for the cream to get pumped out. Perfect packaging.
The cream is white in color with a medium cream-gel texture lighter than the whipped lala retro. You need a small amount for it to slather on your face & neck even on very dry days/nights & my skin drinks it up instantly. It disappears without a trace leaving behind no greasy residue.
I have tried this cream out for both day & night & I prefer it as a night cream since I prefer my day cream to have sun protection. I do wake up to soft, plump skin in the morning when I use it at night.
Only thing I noticed after a couple of weeks constant use was that my skin seemed a little too sensitive & breakout prone. I don’t know if it’s the result of too much protein (too much protein in hair products is bad for hair too) but after that, I use this on alternative nights. My husband has had no issues though.
The cream is fragrance free which is better for sensitive skins & it has not aggravated my skin in any manner.
Pros of the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream:
1> Best tub packaging ever- both for travel & hygienic purposes.
2> Medium thick cream-gel texture which sinks easily into the skin.
3> Great for drier, more mature skin types.
4> Hydrates skin very well without any tacky residue.
5> Fragrance free for sensitive skins.
6> Free from nasty chemicals.
Cons of the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream:
Was a bit too much for my sensitive skin to use daily.
My Rating: 4.5/5!
Do I recommend the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream?
Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream is a protein rich cream meant as a protein shake for dull, tired mature skin to help in skin renewal & was a bit too much for my sensitive skin for daily use. My husband has no problems with it & his skin feels soft & supple. I would not really repurchase this but would consider a cheaper & lighter option for my sensitive skin.
