Take a peek in nearly any makeup artist's kit and you'll spy a well-loved tube of this cult favorite. Since we're just as picky as the pros, you'd better believe we're fans too. It doubles as a makeup remover, post-shave soother, and baby cream. Who says beauty isn't practical?
As I am over 60 years old, I always love trying products to moisturize and protect without being too rich and greasy. This was a delight to use after a day in the sun and water and using under my tinted moisturizer. My skin looked dewy and radiant and I definitely loved the finish this cream provided.4
I have very sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin. This moisturizer does not make my face look greasy, and actually makes my skin look more youthful, and my pores look smaller. No breakouts either, which is always a given with any other moisturizer I have ever used. Any scarring from old acne also seems less visible as well. Only downside to this product, is I don't like the smell. That's why I didn't give it the full 5 stars. I'm also very sensitive to smell as well though...so take that how you will.
All in all, this was a must purchase. Thanks Birchbox!
I absolutely love this cream, it is just such a shame that it can be too rich for my combination skin in the warmer months. It makes light work of dry patches, and soothes irritated skin.5
I go through many moisturizers to find the right one. They are either too oily or too drying and offer no compatibility with my makeup.
Embyolisse is thick at first, but not oily. It absorbs wonderfully with your skin and blends well with foundation. My face looked clear, moisturized, and covered all day!
I have not tested it as a makeup remover or post shave soother yet, but I'm sure it does wonders. To be continued...
I tried this once as a birchbox sample and wasn't particularly impressed. Recently I bought the full size tube due to some skin issues I was having and noticed a huge difference in my skin. It feels smoother and I don't have as many issues.5
It is very creamy and moisturizing. Did not make me break out. I like it.4
I love this creme. My skin feels so soft and smooth. My makeup looks great right on top of this or with a primer. It keeps my winter skin feeling great!5
As a makeup artist I would say there is no surprise why thousands of professionals all over the world use this cream. It is light but nourishes the skin perfectly. You really don't have to use any primer, it is great before applying your foundation. I use it on myself, I use it on my clients. Must have in every beauty bag.5
I ordered this product because it had gotten such rave reviews. However, it is not the right product for me.
About a year ago, I switched my skin care routine to 100% natural products, and my rosacea cleared up and my skin texture evened.
However, I was curious about this product. As soon as I applied it to my face, I could feel the synthetic chemicals in it. I could also feel the high petroleum content of the cream. Bottom line, this cream is so useful as a general balm and makeup remover because it is mostly petroleum. The high perfume content also made my rosacea come back. I have moved this product to my purse and I only use it as a (really nice) hand cream now.
So if you're an all natural girl like me, skip this one. But if you are okay with chemicals on your face, go ahead & use it. It is very moisturizing.
Perfect for my dry and sensitive skin. Keeps my skin from looking dry and flakey under my makeup. I am repurchasing for the second time!5
