I have been hearing so many raves about Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre for so long. How it is the greatest moisturizer, ever. The best under makeup primer... You don't need anything else! When I placed a recent Sephora order, I decided to buy a small tube to try it out. See if all of the hoopla bore out.
First of all, let me say thee yay! Embryolisse for packaging your Lait-Creme Concentre in an air tight, light safe, sanitary tube. The fact that it is metal is a bit of a gripe, I find plastic easier to deal with but whatever. At least I'm not having to dip fingers or a stupid spatula into a jar.
The formula of this moisturizer is a light, slightly whipped texture. It reminds me of creme fraiche, it is very silky and softy mounds and holds it's shape when dispensed. It spreads onto the skin smoothly and absorbs fairly readily and is under makeup friendly.
The scent - there is a scent - is soft, creamy-clean-lightly floral. I love the fragrance, it isn't strong and it dissipates as it is applied and sinks into the skin. I don't notice it, once it's on and doing it's thing. If you are opposed to scent in your skin care or very scent sensitive, this moisturizer may not be your bag.
You can use Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre as a makeup remover, an under makeup primer (I prefer to top it with a face primer but that is me...) and even on babies and kiddos. I would skip using this on tiny humans who have sensitive skin. I could not have used this on my son when he was small as he has very sensitive skin and anything that was scented irritated him.
Le Ingredients. Yes. Mineral oil. I know that not everyone is okay with it but I don't have any problem using it. Cosmetic grade mineral oil is safe and effective and it doesn't break me out or clog my pores. Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre has no sunscreen protection, so you will want to use sunscreen before UV exposure.
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre is for me a lovely, effective basic day moisturizer. It doesn't contain any specialized anti aging ingredients; it isn't going to magically reduce wrinkles or brighten my skin tone. That's fine. I have serums and other creams that do those jobs. It works, smells delightful, makes my skin feel soft and comfortable and it's beautiful under makeup. It doesn't pack the hydration power punch I require in a night cream. I like this moisturizer and I will definitely re purchase when this baby tube runs out.
I bought my 1 fl oz tube at Sephora for $16.00. A 2.5 fl oz tube is $26.00.
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre is also listed on Amazon.
I almost forgot to mention. Well, I did, actually, which is why I'm popping back in to do so... Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre is cruelty free.
