Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè Moisturizer Review

At the beginning of November, I was introduced to Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè Moisturizer (affiliate link) by James Vincent at the Makeup Show Orlando. We received a sample size of it in our blogger pack. I used it that first night and immediately rushed out the next day to buy a full size of it because I was blown away by how it brightened my skin. Finally, I’m sharing my review of the product with you!

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè

As you can see, my tube is well-loved.

The Website Claims
It is a rich moisturizing lotion. This specially formulated lotion is quite versatile; throw it in your travel bag when you don’t have enough space for numerous products. Our creamy lotion is really three products in one: the make-up artists use it as a primer, moisturizer, and make-up remover. It also reduces irritation after shaving!

  • Paraben free
  • Not Tested on Animals

Ingredients
Aqua. Paraffinum Liquidum. Stearic Acid. Glyceryl Stearate. Triethanolamine. Cera Alba. Cetyl Palmitate. Butyrospermum Parkii.
Steareth-10. Polyacrylamide C13-14 Isoparaffin. Laureth-7. Propylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Aloe Barbadensis. 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol. Tropolone. Parfum.

Price
$28 for 2.6 fl. oz.
$16 for 1 fl. oz.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! It does work as a make-up remover and as a primer. However, I prefer it as a moisturizer. I’ve been using it as a night time moisturizer, eye cream, and a perk up cream during the day. It’s soothing on my skin. It brightens my skin up. I look refreshed the next day, like I’ve had a facial.

The packaging is a tube, which I greatly prefer to a tub. I love not having to stick my fingers in it.

Would I purchase it again?
Yes! I’m so glad I was introduced to this product. It’s amazingly soothing on my face. It doesn’t cause any rosacea flare ups for me. I’ve been using it now for almost two months and love it. I think it’s a great price point for a great product.

They have a few other products that I’m curious about, including their Lait-Crème Scintillant (an illuminating moisturizer that might be a good replacement for my MAC Strobe Cream), Lait-Crème Moussant Sans Savon (a non drying cleanser), and an anti-aging cream. They even make a BB Cream!

This product has been a secret weapon for Makeup Artists for years and I can see why. It’s truly a great product and deserves its cult status.

Have you tried Embryolisse?

      I’m thinking I may have gotten a fake of this from amazon. Everyone raves about it, but I didn’t like it at all. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but it just wasn’t the amazing product for me that I thought it would be. It didn’t feel moisturizing, though I have very dry skin. The smell kind of annoyed me too. It felt very….balmy?

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Melissyjo This doesn’t feel balmy to me at all. It feels very lotion-y, and it is very emollient, spreading easily.

        • Melissyjo

          Phyrra Melissyjo  Hmm, perhaps I’ll give the illuminating one a try and order it from their website.

      I missed this one at the make up show… and now I feel like kicking myself. would it work on oily skin??

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        bNiiontweet I have sensitive combo skin, and I typically am oily on my eyes and t-zone. I do fine with it, but I’m only super oily on my eyes. I don’t know how super oily skin would work with it, but it works great with combo.

      Can you believe I have this in my pro kit but haven’t really tried it for myself? DOH!

      • BooBooNinja

        perilouslypale That *is* a mega DOH! :) tee hee! Where did you get yours, Christa? I’m also in Canada.

      I love this stuff!  My skin likes THICK moisturizers, and I wanted something that works as a nice base for my foundation.  Someone recommended this and I have been using it ever since! Nice and thick but it absorbs nicely but it somehow helps my foundation stick and wear better.  I don’t use anything else as a primer on top, but my mineral foundation still wears all day.  I generally don’t use it that way but it actually does do a pretty good job at removing makeup when I need it in a pinch!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        kawaiiferreto Yay I am so glad to hear you love it, too.

    • LolaSeicento

      Fabulous review, Phyrra! I love multipurpose products, and this sounds amazing!!!! Want want want!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        LolaSeicento You will love it :)

      I just started trying the new Embryolisse anti-dark spot lightening serum! It’ll take a while before I can tell if it actually lightens my sun spots, but the ingredient list is so promisingly simple!I’ve heard SO much about this moisturizer. It’ll be the thing I grab when I’m done with my current moisturizers :)

      • BooBooNinja

        Mostly Sunny I’m looking forward to that review!

    • Marcia beauty info zone

      You’ll find this at great prices at IMATS and I think the table will be right near where you’ll be. I picked up a kit of the brand last time and it’s wonderful.

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Marcia beauty info zone Yay that’s good to know!

    • KimberlyisHere

      I am in love with it too.

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        KimberlyisHere Yay!

    • Whimsical Kelly

      I bought the smaller size of this moisturizer yesterday because of your review, Phyrra. I can’t wait to try it out!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Whimsical Kelly I hope you love it :)

    • BooBooNinja

      My skin has become a dry mess in the past 1-2 months. Thanks for bringing this product back on my radar. I wish I were going to IMATS so I could get this. It isn’t locally available where I am.

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        BooBooNinja Try purchasing through Amazon! I love my Prime shipping.

      Hi Phyrra,
      The link in your post goes directly to Amazon. Can I go directly to the manufacturer’s website? This sounds like a product my skin would drink up without flaring up!
      Thanks!

        Sandy615 Yep, here’s the link –
