Embryolisse is a cult brand, loved and raved about by many since 1950 when it was created by a French dermatologist. It was not just because it was gentle enough to be used by all skin types, but the products were effective, especially the first one – Lait-Creme Concentrate which can be found in every makeup artist’s bag and also loved by celebrities. I have a friend who stocks up on Embryolisse products when she visits Europe but now that the brand is available in Canada, I am sure many of you will have one thing marked off your list of to-do things when you visit France. If you have not tried anything from the brand, you need to try – there is a reason why it is cult.
I have tried few of the products from the brand and I must say they are gentle, hydrating, effective, and cost-effective. Embryolisse formulas make use primarily of active ingredients of plant origin, produced from flowers and fruits. ‘Not a set, a dressing room, nor a fashion show’s backstage, without the Lait-Crème Concentré being under the spotlights. It is the favourite product of make-up artists everywhere in the world and the beauty secret of stars. ‘
I think for my combination skin, winter is the perfect month to try something that is hydrating and gentle which does not breaks me out.
