Today’s review is going to be on the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre. Being a makeup junkie with the most sensitive skin on earth, I have to do a lot of digging before adding any new product to my skincare regime. For me to have that smooth skin for the makeup to go on perfectly, it is mandatory to moisturize the skin without looking like a grease ball or aggravating my acne. I was extensively researching for products that would fit the bill and I narrowed it to this one. So how did the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre fare out for me? Read on to know!

What The Company Claims?

A nourishing, multitasking moisturizer that primes, hydrates, and removes all traces of makeup. This soothing, luxurious moisturizer primes and preps the skin for flawless makeup application, deeply hydrates, and removes all traces of makeup. Great for all skin types, a combination of shea butter and emollient oils reconstitutes, rejuvenates, and repairs the skin for a healthy-looking complexion.

This cruelty-free product is dermatologist recommended and not tested on animals. The cult-favorite is used by various makeup artists including Val Garland, James Vincent, Orlando Santiago, Johny LaVoy, Billy B, Sharon Gault, and more. This year, Embryolisse—the legendary French skincare brand—celebrates its 65th anniversary. In honor of the celebration, Embryolisse has issued this limited-edition gold series of Lait‐Crème Concentré, the brand’s original product that debuted in 1950 and became a cult-classic around the world.

How Did Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre Work For Me?

The Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre comes in a white metal squeezy tube packaging which after a month tends to get wrinkly and the product seeps through the metal shears so instead of that, they could have gone with a simple plastic packaging which would have got the job done easily. Aside from the packaging you get 75ml of product which is a lot considering you will need only a tiny bit every time you use it. The Embryolisse Cream is white in color and has a creamy texture which melts into the skin when you rub it in. The ones I got was unscented so it didn’t have any distinct fragrance.

I have extremely oily and sensitive skin so I don’t try out a lot of skincare products instead I stick to the ones that work for me without breaking me out. I take a pea sized amount of the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre and rub it into the skin letting it sink slowly and apply the rest on my neck and chest. Keep in mind it is not a light moisturizer and though it is on the heavier side, it doesn’t make me greasy. It helps the foundation to go on so much more smoother than if it is applied directly on the skin. It didn’t aggravate my existing acne and helps with the longevity of makeup. If I want to thin out the foundation I mix a small dollop of this with any of my thicker foundations to bring them to a BB cream like consistency.

During the day I apply the thinnest layer possible with this and either add makeup on top or skip that part. In the night I slather on a lot of this and sleep in it so my skin can soak up as much moisture as it can. The formula is paraben free, it doesn’t clog my pores or break me out. Though it heavily moisturizes the skin it is not heavy on the skin, it is quite lightweight and absorbs easily. You can also remove eye makeup by rubbing a Q tip soaked in the moisturizer with this. Embryolisse is a French drugstore brand but it is expensive here in US which is a bit annoying. The Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is a great dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream($100). Overall the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is absolutely worth every penny and is a definite must have as a moisturizer/primer.
