Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Review & Swatches

Back in July i travelled to Paris and whilst i was there i had to pop to a French pharmacy and Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré was one of the items on my list.

I purchased a duo pack for €17.89 which roughly equates to £14. I thought it was incredibly cheap at £7 each for a 75ml tube.

Many makeup artists use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré and has recently become a 'cult' product amongst the blogger and YouTube community.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré was formulated by a dermatologist in Paris and was a plain, simple cream to use for all skin types, including sensitive skins. This product can be used as a cleanser, moisturizer, makeup remover and as a face mask.

Now going onto the actual product. I have combination skin with some dehydration and i had used this during the day but found it to be a bit greasy on my skin. However my dehydrated bits did not feel dry or tight at all.

However using it at night is a completely different story. I found after cleansing and toning, the moisturizer absorbed well into my skin. It didn't feel heavy, but still felt a tiny bit tacky when i touched my face.

My skin in the morning felt super smooth and well hydrated....the effect that it gives me is almost the same as the Clinique Repairware Intensive Night Cream.

Using it under makeup is another thing......foundation seems to glide on perfectly onto the skin and Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré acts as sort of a primer. The skin looks dewy and naturally glowy. This seems to help hide any flakiness on the skin when using foundation, as sometimes my foundation accentuates my dehydrated patches.

Overall i do like this product but i personally don't think it's a great moisturizer to use on combination to oily skins. I may try using this in the winter when my skin becomes much more drier and I will carry on using this as a night cream, as i like how soft and hydrated my skin is in the morning. The downside to this product is trying to get hold of it in the UK but I know Guru Makeup Emporium sells it HERE

Have any of you used Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré? Thought?


  1. i love this, i have dry skin i agree with what you say about hiding the flakiness x

  2. It is fantastic for dry skin, especially for winter. http://williamspromakeup.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/battle-of-balms-clarins-beauty-flash.html
