Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré (24-Hour Miracle Cream) - 30 ml

Take a peek in nearly any makeup artist's kit and you'll spy a well-loved tube of this cult classic, also a fave of French women. Since we're just as picky as the pros, you'd better believe we're fans and not just for the way it makes our tired, fatigued complexions look healthy and plump, but also because of it's many other uses. It doubles as a primer, a makeup remover, a post-shave soother, and baby cream. Who says beauty isn't practical?

Definitely not for my skincare needs

This product comes out very thick, but when rubbed in leaves a watery film on my skin, and I think is better suited for older women's skin needs.

Turned My Whole Face Red

Embryolisse gets a lot of hype here for being amazing so I was excited to try it. I washed my face and applied a pea size amount before bed. It is a little heavy but I thought it would make a great night cream. My face felt so smooth and nice after applying it; although, I did notice it also felt bit warm, but thought nothing of it. I got up an hour later, looked in the mirror, and was horrified to see my whole face was bright red. My skin is sensitive and gets red sometimes when I first apply products. However, an hour later it hadn't calmed down at all. I ended up having to wash it off and start over. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this product.

Too Heavy

I tried this sample once and I do not care for it. It felt heavy and has a scent. (not a bad scent) I do not like to use perfumed products on my face. I put it on and immediately took it off.

Too greasy

For my skin, this product felt too greasy going on and an hour later gave me a sweaty look, not a nice fresh glow. I found I had to wash my hands, too, after application as it just didn't soak in to my hands quickly, which is odd, because I always need hand moisturizer living in a dry climate. I didn't look up all of the ingredients, so I don't know if one of those is another name for mineral oil, which I typically avoid. After reading other reviews, I had high hopes for this, but it doesn't work with my skin.

Stings

Sorry to say this nicely textured cream stings after sinking into skin. Tried it several times to be sure. Leaves face a bit red looking. Unfortunately not a good match for me. Otherwise I liked the texture.

Meh-not impressed

The bottle looks like a prescription, but it wasn't anything to write home about. I tried it, made my skin oily and I wasn't thrilled. Theres definitely better moisturizers on the market with more selling appeal.

Horrible product.

This went straight in the trash after using it just two days. I received this in the skin quencher special box, it is horrible. I have oily, acne prone skin. I used this two nights and my face went from clear to have multiple break outs in areas I normally don't get pimples. My pores are all extremely clogged and huge now. I could scrape the grease off my face it was so bad the morning after putting this on my face. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you have very dry skin and sent woriied about break outs and clogged pores.

Nope

I'm acne prone. I won't even let myself near this product. Too full in mineral oil for me. My pores want to clog just by looking at this product

Deceptive

At first, my skin seemed soothed and somewhat moisturized after using this product, though annoyingly greasy for longer than convenient. But I found that even after just a handful of hours, I would wash my hands and the skin would be drier than ever. The effect of this product is not at all long-lasting, it is not true moisturization, just a temporary, surficial effect. The smell is inoffensive and the texture is fine, but it just doesn't do what a moisturizer should do.

A greasy disappointment

The Embryolisse cream was kind of a disappointment, especially considering its reputation. It made my face feel oilier and it didn’t feel like it completely absorbed into my face, either. I could definitely feel this *layer* of something on my skin. 1/5
