“Whether you worked hard or played hard the night before, don’t hesitate to reach out for your jar of juju and take on the day.”

In a world full of oils, serums and balms, the good, old-fashioned cream has to do something pretty spectacular to stand out.

Or, it just has to show up in the form of a hangover. Or, perhaps, “The Hangover,” as Lalogy does with this peptide-infused, goldenrod-colored cream.

{Lalogy sent me a sample of “The Hangover” face cream. It costs $98 for a 1.7-ounce plastic jar.}

As one who is finally coming around to creams, I’m still figuring out what I want out of one.

  • If it’s loaded with thick butters and oils, it’s a balm.
  • If it’s runny and slick, it’s a lotion.
  • If it’s pillowy, fast-absorbing and leaves zero shine, it’s a cream. A dream cream.

That — and a little bit more — is what I’ve found in Lalogy’s The Hangover Instant Lift Nano-Peptide Cream.

This gorgeous golden cream, which smells of sea buckthorn and chamomile, feels cushiony soft on the skin.

It’s one of those creams that seems like it’s thick at first scoop (using about a nickel-sized dollop). But as you massage it into your face and neck, it instantly disappears into your pores and leaves absolutely no trace of sheen.

It’s seriously like a second skin. I sometimes splurge and use this as a hand cream because it’s that fast-absorbing — no greasy face, neck or hands here. It’s the whole “my skin but better” thing — better meaning not cracked, itchy, flaky or dull.

That’s thanks to a smart ingredients list that has a healthy mix of water, aloe leaf juice and oils combined with powerful peptides designed to help firm the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness.

Here are the key ingredients and their claims:

  • Tripeptide-5: Dramatically reduces deep wrinkles and restores collagen and elastin activity
  • Tamarind Seed Extract: Improves skin elasticity, hydration and smoothness
  • Pomegranate Oil: Regenerates skin cells and thickens skin
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil: Softens skin, anti-inflammatory, restores barrier function
  • Organic Nettle: Lifts and tightens skin
  • Horsetail Extract: Astringent, minimizes pores
  • Green Tea Extract: Free radical scavenger, anti-inflammatory antioxidant

As you can see, there’s some old favorites, like pomegranate, sea buckthorn and green tea, along with some lovely extracts like horsetail and nettle that are used by many beloved skincare mixologists.

While I can’t truly speak to things like cell regeneration and collagen activity, I can speak to the lovely texture these key ingredients create in Lalogy’s The Hangover cream.

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Water (Aqua), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Water (Aqua) Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Water (Aqua), Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Extract, Cameila Sinensis Leaf Extract, *Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Emulsifying Wax NF, Hippophae Rhamnoides L. (Seabuckthorn) Oil, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Essential Oil, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile Roman) Essential Oil, Helichrysum Italicum (Helichrysum) Essential Oil

Though I’ve used Lalogy’s The Hangover Instant Lift Nano-Peptide Cream both morning and evening, I prefer it for day because of how fast-drying it is, making it so easy to layer under makeup.

If I’m traveling and want to limit my products, I can easily take this and an oil and be set, using the cream for day and the cream + oil for evening.

This face cream would be perfect year-round for someone with oily skin — and especially in the summer! My boyfriend likes this cream, too, for its fast-drying, non-greasy finish.

So, extra points for the gender-neutral scent and packaging (and perhaps the fun naming of it appeals to the dudes).

For the pricepoint and peptides in this lovely cream, I’d easily recommend it to those searching for something to help their skin look and feel it best — sans shine. I’d repurchase this for myself (and to share with the man), too.
