Peptide products for barrier repair?

A few years ago I tried Drunk Elephant’s Protini cream and my skin never looked so good. No spots, glowing and just generally healthy (I have super sensitive skin). After the sample ran out I didn’t think about it but now I really want it again. But £57? Maybe I should splurge? Is there a better alternative, any moisturiser/serum with peptides? I’ve noticed loads of products have peptides but not many have the Oligo peptides listed in Protini - I think these are the barrier repairing ones? I’m more interested in barrier repair than collagen production as I’m only in my early 20s! If anyone has any ideas let me know (I know Acure whipped cream is a dupe but it’s hard to get in the UK! Also concerned as it has vitamin C and worried it could irritate my skin)

I hear you! I love a good peptide moisturizer, but the DE pricing is out of what I'm ready to spend on a moisturizer:) Based on the ingredients, this cream comes close: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/acure-radically-rejuvenating-whipped-night-cream. I also like https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/cerave-skin-renewing-night-cream, but its peptide content is more modest.

I've never tried protini but Niod have a copper peptide serum which is amazing.

You could try Naturium multi peptide moisturizer
