The Most Hyped New Beauty Products of 2018 (So Far)
Credit card bills reminding us of holiday purchases are currently making their way into our inboxes, but beauty brands don’t care; their launch calendars are going full steam ahead, with products being dropped (or teased) to ensure temptation keeps you motivated. Below are five that, just two weeks into January, are drumming up some serious hype.
Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Cream
This week's #FAQFriday Q (ask questions in the comments, our founder Tiffany Masterson might just respond! Her answers are marked – TM): "What's the difference between #LalaRetro and #Protini?" A: They're both moisturizers, but each serves a different purpose. #Protini helps support, maintain + prevent loss of collagen, while encouraging production of new. It helps improve tone, texture and elasticity. It strengthens and firms and is loaded with signal peptides, growth factor (the good kind) and amino acids. #LalaRetro is deeply moisturizing, nourishing and balancing and helps restore and support the acid mantle or barrier that is critical to the health of our skin. It rescues skin from everyday environmental stressors. They can be mixed or used in same routine. Think of Protini as the pump of protein added to your morning and night routines just like you would add protein powder to your smoothie! ? Photo: @rivas_nathan
Protini was created after founder Tiffany Masterson’s mother asked her to make a cream that would address her collagen concerns. Loaded with nine peptides and growth factors to boost skin’s firmness, texture and bounciness, this is DE for the older crowd.
