The Texture Is Next Level
It’s a given that our face creams should hydrate our skin. However, as someone with combination skin, I have a daily tussle between an oily T-zone and dry cheeks. Drunk Elephant has packed this formula with nine peptides and vitamins to hydrate, strengthen and balance skin. With a moisturising jelly texture, Protini hydrates without feeling heavy or sticky on my face. My cheeks still feel soft by the end of the day, my T-zone doesn’t look like an oil slick, and most importantly my foundation is still intact. I’ve also found it creates the perfect base for makeup, so if you prefer a streamlined routine, skip primer and go straight in with your foundation.
The Results Just Get Better
Having used Protini every day for the past 13 months, I can say with full conviction that your skin will feel healthier and plumper over time. During the summer months, I need the tiniest amount as a little goes a long way. I'd say I use around a pea size amount for my face and neck area. Usually, I switch to a slightly heavier face cream during the winter to zap any dryness, but I stuck with this moisturiser throughout the colder spells. My friends with drier skin have said the same – occasionally they will pat an extra layer of Protini onto thirsty patches.
You Can Use It With Anything
If you’ve got the rest of your skincare routine set and don’t want a moisturiser that’s going to overload your skin and mean giving up your vitamin C serum (I’m currently loving Dermalogica Biolumin C Serum) or your overnight retinol treatment (I’m using Medik8 Crystal Retinal 1 Stable Retinal Night Serum in case you’re interested), Protini is for you. You can also team it with all Drunk Elephant skincare buys, including the Protini Powerpeptide Resurf Serum, which gently exfoliates and brightens skin. The two have been specifically formulated to work together in perfect harmony. If this isn't enough to convince, maybe the ultimate skinfluencer, Hyram Yarbro might with his Protini Polypeptide Cream review.
