I love European skincare lines, so I was thrilled to try the Embryolisse face cream. This line is made in France, and French women are very particular about their skin. I tried a small dab on my skin and rubbed it in. It felt all right, a little greasy. I then read the ingredients. Ugh! Mineral oil (paraffinum liquidum) was the first ingredient after water! Mineral oil is derived from petrochemicals. It is cheap, greasy, and clogs pores. I will not use mineral oil on my skin. Time to scrub it off! If this is ever reformulated to exclude mineral oil, I will be the first to try it. Hopefully some of the current Embryolisse line is petrochemical-free---I will research that tonight.
This definitely has more shine than I like, but I like the versatility of the product. Good to travel with if you don't have much room to pack.
Says multi-purpose, I wouldn't buy it for one.
Labeling say it is a miracle product, everything from baby care to make up remover.
As a make up remover, it works decent if you have a cloth or tissue, and you scrub.
As a moisturizer, it goes onfine,but never sinks into the skin. it left me feeling tacky, with shiny skin.
It smells awful, and the smell doesn't fade.
A great moisturizer for dry skin
This product is a great lightweight moisturizer and absorbs quickly; I particularly love the light floral scent of the cream. I would not recommend using this product several times a day to individuals who have oily skin or are prone to break-outs, as excess product does tend to sit on the top of your skin. It's best to just use this right after washing your face or showering, when your skin can absorb all of the moisturizer you put on it.
Also, the full size tube makes it more difficult to control the amount of product that comes out, which means you have to be pretty careful when you squeeze it, or else you can easily end up with more cream than you need. Even so, it's one of the only products that moisturizes my dry skin without irritating it. Will buy again!
