Embryolisse – Lait-Creme Concentre
So who doesn’t love a multi-tasking beauty product? I certainly do and Lait-Creme Concentre* from Embryolisse is one of those products with multiple uses. Actually it’s a bit of a cult product with a celebrity following – Emma Willis, Ariana Grande and Scarlett Johansen are all said to use this multi-tasking moisturising cream, and one is sold every 60 seconds!
Lait-Creme Concentre is a white cream and it has a traditional scent that reminds me of old-fashioned cold cream. The tube is metallic and you have to pierce the foil seal with the spike inside the end of the lid, the same as you do with Savlon and other medicated creams and gels. I quite like this touch, it means you know that the product is untouched and sterile when you buy it.
So what can you use Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre for? It would probably be quicker for me to list the uses that this product doesn’t help with! Primarily a moisturiser for both morning and evening, the cream also doubles up as a primer leaving the skin with a smooth satin feel that makes it easy to apply make-up over the top. It can also be used as a make-up remover, a moisturising face mask, an aftershave cream for men or women and is also gentle enough to use on a baby’s sensitive skin.
I’ve been using Lait-Creme Concentre as a daytime moisturiser for around two weeks now. I have combination skin and find that the rich cream is perfect for sorting out my dry cheeks and forehead, but it’s a little bit too thick for my oily chin so I use it sparingly on that area. I predict that it’ll be great in Winter when the cold weather and central heating ravage skin and you need something a bit richer to nourish it.
The downside to this moisturiser is that one of the ingredients is liquid paraffin (sometimes known as ‘mineral oil’) and I’d love to see Embryolisse replace this ingredient with a more natural oil at some time in the future.
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is usually priced at £20 for 75ml, but it’s currently on offer for just £13.40 at Feel Unique.
