Take a peek in any makeup artist's kit and you'll spy a well-loved tube of Embryolisse's cult Lait-Crème Concentre. This velvety, quick-absorbing moisturizer gives skin the ultimate silky finish, thanks to generous amounts of soothing shea butter and aloe vera. Plus, it doubles as a makeup remover, post-shave soother, and all-over body lotion. Who says beauty isn't practical?
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.1
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.3
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.
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!
this is just a little to greasy for me and made my face break out :-( its way to heavy and greasy3
Left my skin feeling extra hydrated and smooth. Reduced fine lines.4
This product did everything it said it would. I tend to have dry skin, but this moisturizer changed that! I was very happy with this product!4
I loved this as a primer before applying my foundation routine. Also saw improvemtns in skin condition5
This face cream was very thick and did not make too much of a difference for me. Said it was multi-functioning but only really worked as a (average) moisturizer. Also the sample was teeny-tiny.3
Lol, the name makes me think it's for pregnant women(stretch mark cream?)! I received this in another box so between the 2 I had enough to really sample the product & I must say, I love it! My skin is very dry in the winter, sensitive & even though I'm ageing I still break out occasionally! I had NO issues with this moisturiser, just calm & comfortable skin!4
