The French Secret to Glowing Skin

From style icon Jane Birkin (of Hermès’s Birkin bag fame) to pro makeup artists, Embryolisse’s Lait-Crème Concentré has been racking up scores of fans since it made its debut in 1950. As a devotee myself, I can easily understand why this cult favorite is such a huge hit with in-the-know beauty lovers.

This French pharmacy staple is insanely versatile—you can use it as a straightforward moisturizer, apply it with a cotton ball to seamlessly remove stubborn makeup, or apply as a primer underneath your go-to foundation. The creamy, concentrated formula absorbs quickly and relies on two time-tested ingredients: Aloe vera and shea butter. First, calming aloe vera soothes redness and staves off irritation. Next up, ultra-hydrating shea butter tackles stubborn dry patches and gives skin a silky finish. The formula also eschews pore-clogging parabens, which is awesome news for ladies like myself who continually deal with the occasional post-teendom pimple.

But don’t just take my (and the lovely Ms. Birkin’s) word for it; some of our lucky subscribers will be receive a sample of the cult classic in their December Birchboxes, meaning you can put the classic formula to the test for yourself!
