Green Beauty and Melasma Healing Expert – Healthy Magpie Clean Skincare and Organic Living Blog
I love art (especially Erte) and clean, green organic skin care :) . I love Drunk Elephant LaLa Retro and Protini cream but I often combine the 2. A better alternative if you like the affect of both combined is OSEA advanced protection cream organic skincare from Malibu.

Better than Drunk Elephant Protini and LaLa Retro: OSEA Advanced Protection Cream

Don’t freak out.

I can’t believe I’m saying this.

There is a product better than one made by Drunk Elephant.

Actually to be more accurate there is one product you can buy to cover the feel and functionality of both Drunk Elephant Polypeptide Protini and LaLa Retro: OSEA Advanced Protection Cream. This almost feels like blasphemy given my Drunk Elephant review and my most popular YouTube skincare review video.

I was first introduced to OSEA organic skin care from Malibu by Mary at SeaMakers in La Jolla and she made me a sample of this cream. It was so dreamy and my sweet boys gave it to me for mother’s day last year. Mary was so right (as usually) about how amazing this cream is.

Let me break down some benefits and math here so I can [finally] save you some money in skin care suggestions 🙂

Why I love Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream:

  • Absolutely quenches my thirsty, dehydrated skin
  • Super hydrating
  • Very emollient but easily absorbable (is that a word)
  • I also use it as a hydrating eye cream

Why I love Drunk Elephant LaLa Retro Whipped Cream:

  • Absolutely quenches my thirsty, dehydrated skin
  • Super hydrating
  • Very creamy
  • My skin feels amazingly soft when I wake up

Why I love OSEA Advanced Protection Cream:

  • Combined benefits of the above PLUS
  • It definitely improves the appearance of my skin – for sure one of the products that has driven strong dark spot reduction results on my face
  • A satisfying tingly feeling that somethings working

Still uncomfortable with the number of photos of myself I’ve posted this year but important to stay focused on the positive here on this #transformationtuesday ! … … … Things I miss about 2016 – Having the time to blow dry my hair. – My thinner face (hoping last of the baby weight will be off soon 🤞🏻) – Not having to color the grays in my hair Things I don’t miss about 2016 – Stressing out about covering my face with tons of makeup … … … Most days I can’t believe my clean beauty / green beauty experiments have worked so well to improve my #melasma ,#darkspots and #sunspots without aggravating my vitiligo #vitiligobeauty … … I’m trying to be better about keeping everyone updated on my tips and progress without hydroquinone or lasers. But never enough time in a day! … … So thankful for all the amazing #mindfulbeauty brands that have helped me see results! @truebotanicals @drunkelephant @mayachiabeauty @ereperezcosmetics @joshrosebrook @akt_therapy

Why do I think OSEA Advanced Protection Cream works so well? This age-defyer in a jar is packed with some amazing skin care rockstars:

I mostly use the product at night to wake up to transformed skin but you could totally use it in the AM too!

So if you find yourself wishing to replace both your Drunk Elephant Protini and LaLa Retro cream, you could save $20 by buying just 1 amazing OSEA Malibu skincare cream.
