What is the secret behind the Embryolisse Lait Concentre, a moisturiser originally formulated by a dermatologist that quickly became a worldwide backstage staple during Fashion week? Is it its exceptional texture? Its high tolerance even on the most sensitive skin or its multi-purpose abilities? We have screened this miracle cream and we tell you all!
Khloe Kardashian, Elle MacPherson, Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley... they all have adopted it!
What is it?
In one sentence we would say: a thick yet easily absorbed hydrating cream containing shea butter, beeswax, soy proteins and aloe vera.
If this isn’t enough to convince you, this is actually a multi-tasking cream that can be used on the face and body not only as a moisturiser but also as primer and cleanser!
Who can use it?
The gentle and relatively simple formula and the limited ingredients list means that Embryolisse works well on sensitive or irritated skin. If your skin is more on the drier side, it’s even better!
What does it do?
It hydrates the skin deeply: Ideal to compensate the drying effects of a heater or air conditioning, harsh tap water and a life saviour during long haul flights when your skin can feel really tight and uncomfortable.
It heals dryness and irritation: This can turn into a SOS cream if your skin is irritated after shaving or overheated by sun exposition. It can also help with sunburns.
It preps the skin before make-up: Thanks to its lightweight consistency, it will smooth the complexion and ensure your make-up stays in place for longer.
It removes make-up and impurities: The oil based will capture any make-up, pollution or residue without leaving the skin oily or sticky. Your skin will look fresh and smoothed in the morning.
Our favorite tips:
As a moisturiser (day and night time): Apply on clean skin after your serum. One of our tips is to dilute it with a thermal water spray in summer or mixed it with your foundation to give more glow to the skin.
As a night mask: Another tip is to apply a generous amount at night to bring back all the hydration the skin needs during the night. Alternatively, you can leave it on for 15min and remove the excess with a tissue or cotton pad.
As a make-up primer: To achieve a dewy look, apply all over the face or as a highlighter on key areas.
As a cleanser: Apply on a cotton pad and remove make-up on both face and eyes. Remove the excess with a tissue.
