Embryolisse Lait-Crème is a French skin care icon. Founded back in 1950 by a Parisian specialist in skin diseases, Embryolisse products – led by the legendary Lait-Crème – combine effectiveness with tolerance and have consistently met the expectations and requirements of the beauty profession. With formulations drawing on both natural plant nutrients and the latest dermatological active ingredients, the Embryolisse range is suitable for use on even the most sensitive skin and provides all the nourishment and care required for healthy, radiant skin.
First things first, this product makes for a super moisturiser. It’s ultra-rich, yet it does not feel heavy or oily on my skin at all. On that note – it also makes as an ideal pre-foundation primer and I feel my make up goes on well and stays… but that’s just the beginning.
You can also use it as a make up remover, a cleanser and as a healing ointment! No wonder it’s a backstage favourite used by MUA’s and celebrities alike. My partner has even been pinching it too to use as an after-shave lotion! Who says beauty isn’t practical?
I’ve been using the Lait-Crème for just over a week now and I love it! It’s perfect for my make up free days as well because it makes my skin feel soft, silky and fresh! If my skin is feeling a bit dry and dehydrated, I lay the creme on thick so it works as a moisturising mask overnight. To use, I gently massage the product into my skin in a circular motion. It has a refreshing scent too – just like freshly picked gardenias.
Overall, this creme works really well for me! I am blemish free but have combination skin (oil on my t-zone and the odd patch of dryness). It’s ultra-rich but non-greasy which is a bonus. However, I am unsure whether it would work on skin prone to acne or breakouts? I highly recommend it and I look forward to adding more Embryolisse into my skincare routine!
