Weekly Must-Have: Drunk Elephant Polypeptide Cream
I need another face cream like I need a hole in my head. To be honest, what my routine needs is some consistency. But when I read this description from Drunk Elephant founder Tiffany Masterson, I knew that Drunk Elephant Protini needed to be added to my regimen: “Every day, I add protein powder to my smoothie for muscle support. I wanted a different kind of moisturizer that would do the same for my collagen…help maintain, create more and prevent breakdown of existing. Protini was born. Jam-packed with crazy levels of amino acids, signal peptides and safe, synthetic growth factors (the good kind), this “get-sh*t-done” cream melts right into your skin to make it hydrated, bouncy and balanced.”
While I could certainly appreciate Tiffany’s goals for her newest formula, the proof had to be in the pudding to give this product a permanent slot in my skincare lineup. Well, I’m happy to report that she succeeded. This stuff is the real deal. After several applications, my skin simply looks healthier. It feels revived and more bouncy, as if I’ve actually gotten eight hours of sleep for once.
I think Tiffany is right that this is like a protein-shake for your skin: it strengthens and fortifies the complexion the same way a shake does for your muscles. However, I also think it has superhero green juice properties that help give serious glow. While sometimes a protein shake or superfood-packed green juice can be hard to swallow, this product is a joy to use thanks to its fast absorption and brilliantly-designed pump dispenser.
It would be remiss to discuss a Drunk Elephant product without mentioning all the wonderful things they leave out of their formulas. The absence of silicones, sensitizing dyes, perfumes, or essential oils in this product makes it appropriate for all skin types that could use some extra oomph.
