Skin Care Favorites: Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre

I’ve got two sets of skin care products: the ones I use everyday and the products that I use when my skin is playing up, this products being for the latter. For everyday Enzymion is my moisturiser, but when ever I get sick or stressed my skin dries up like a prune and that’s where this cream is a God send.

The basic gist of it is it turns dry, dehydrated skin into plump, glowy skin in a matter of minutes. So you can see why it’s a favorite of models and makeup artists. For me this isn’t a product that I can use as a permanent moisturiser because it’s so rich! When my skin is super dry it’s perfect, but if I use everyday my face looks like I’ve dumped it in olive oil.

I love this cream for putting moisture back into my skin fast!

When your skin is feeling really dry and ou put this on at first it can feel quite annoying like it’s just a layer of heavy cream sitting on your skin, but give it a few minutes and your skin just drinks up. I don’t really know how to describe the smell of this one, it smells….creamy?

I bought this one at IMATS a year and a half ago but you can get this cream on ebay or gurumakeupemporium, my favorite being ebay of course haha! I don’t think very oil skin types will like this one, more for dry and combinations skins. This is also a great foundation primer for your skin, especially if makeup has a tendency to dry out your skin. 

Basics:

  • Cruelty-free
  • Made in France
  • Contains Mineral Oil
  • Great for FAST moisturisation (is that a word?)

Mineral oil is an interesting one because I’ve never had any problems with it, it seems to vary from person to person. For some people it breaks them out like crazy, and then for other people, like myself, my skin seems to love it. If your not sure then maybe get a tester? The last thing you want to do it splurge on this only to find your skin hates it.

As you can see I’ve gotten quite a bit of use out of it, and while it’s not the cheapest product it will last a white and does a fantastic job! One thing though is if you haven’t exfoliated in a while this wont be as effective. Also you don’t need much at all. A 2p sized blob will easily cover your face without a problem, and if you don’t want something as intense one of my favorite trick is to spray my face with Breath of Fresh Air and THEN apply the cream.

That way you need a lot less cream (probably a 1p size) and can have a bit of fun massaging it into your skin.

    Thank you for all the skincare product reviews! I’ve been interested in trying some of the Lush products out but was unsure of the results. I really like that you’re thorough in your reviews! Again, thanks a bunch it’s been a hugh help for me!! :)

    It is a great cream, I have it for three months now. But I don’t think it is a great moisturizing cream. I have a very dry skin around my jaw, and it doens’t help. My skin feels really soft, but that’s it.

    Great if it works for you, maybe it works for more people.

    The thing about mineral oil is that it’s not very healthy for the skin! I avoid it like crazy if it’s in skin/hair care products!
    From what I’ve researched about it, this is what keeps me running from it:
    It is produced as a byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil, and it clogs the skins pores- which reduces the skin’s ability to eliminate toxins.

    If you can find a more natural product without it, I would definitely recommend it! I think Burt’s Bees has a great line, but it’s usually too oily for me. I really love 100% pure, thought it’s a bit pricey!

    Thanks for reviewing, as always!!!!
