Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Review

posted in: Skin Care | 7

It’s called the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre but in my opinion, you can call it the magic cream. I have been looking for the perfect moisturizer for a long time and I think I have finally found it. It has everything I was looking for in a moisturizer plus many added benefits.

What is the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré?


The Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré is a 3 in 1 cream that is a moisturizer, a primer and a makeup remover. Those are its main functions, however, it can also be used as a repairing mask, an after-shave cream and a cleanser. Pretty fantabulous if you ask me!

The cream is made up of natural ingredients which are high in vitamins and fatty acids so that your skin will be replenished and soft. Its main active ingredient is emollient oil along with shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera and soy proteins. These are derived from natural origins. The cream is paraben-free.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Review

It’s designed for all skin types and I’ve seen reviews from people with oily skin to dry skin, they all say how well it works for them. It really is magic!

My experience

For as long as I can remember I have had combination skin with a very oily t-zone. Recently in the last couple of months, I’ve noticed a change, it could be because I am getting older or perhaps because of the weather. My skin started to feel very dry and wearing foundation looked terrible. It looked cakey and the worst part was that my skin looked old.

After looking into a few different moisturisers and trying out a few which didn’t really fix the problem, I came across the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré.

I had never before heard of a cream that works well for combination skin and dry skin so I was sceptical but since it’s not expensive I took the risk. And I am so happy I did.

From the word go, it was a game-changer for my skin. The formula is thick and creamy yet not at all oily. It absorbs into the skin really quickly. It has a slight smell when you apply it, it’s a clean fresh sort of smell that goes once the cream is dry. I don’t mind it at all.


I initially bought it as a moisturiser however, I have started using it as my primer as well and occasionally as a makeup remover. Surprisingly it works really well as all three. Usually, I steer clear of products that double up or in this case triple up, because I find they don’t do any of the tasks properly. In this case, I was ready to eat my humble pie. It moisturises and primes beautifully and cleanses really well too.

How to use

How to use as a moisturiser:

Using a small amount apply evenly to your skin every morning when you wake up and every evening before you go to sleep. I always like to apply moisturiser to slightly damp skin as I find the skin absorbs the cream better.

How to use as a primer:

When using as a primer apply like you would when using it as a moisturizer. Remember to make sure the cream has dried properly before applying your makeup. For the primer to do its job as a barrier between your skin and your makeup, it needs to be dry.

How to use as a makeup remover:

There’s no mention of how to use the Lait-Crème Concentré as a makeup remover. Although it is mainly being sold as a moisturiser, since they advertise it as a 3 in 1, I feel they should mention it no matter how obvious it may be to some.

There are 2 methods to use it as a makeup remover. Either you can use it like you would use any soap, wash your face and massage the cream in and remove it with water after. The other way is by squeezing a little of the product onto a cotton wool pad and removing it like that. I have tried both ways and they both work fine. I prefer the first method because the second method uses a lot of the product and who doesn’t like to save!

Who is it for?

It is perfect for all skin types especially those who have dry skin. It will also simplify your skincare routine so if you are short on time I highly recommend it. It’s ideal for you if you travel a lot or if you are in Uni or a gap year. This one cream will multitask and save you space and time.

My Thoughts

Is the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré worth getting? That’s a definite YES from me! It has worked some magic on my skin, ever since I started using it my foundation melts onto my skin and has a beautiful flawless finish. I haven’t had any dry or oily patches since I started using it.

My skin feels so soft, smooth and hydrated, I’m honestly loving this cream. It’s one of my best investments so far this year. And the best part yet, it is so affordable.

The Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré is perfect for anyone who is short on time, space and money.

Since its an all-in-one, you don’t need 2 steps for moisturising and priming. That saves a lot of time and space, instead of having 3 separate bottles it’s all in one! It also saves money because you no longer need to buy expensive moisturisers and primers, this cream is effective and amazing and it is not at all expensive.

    Hi! Thank you for sharing your experience. It’s quite difficult to find a solution for a combination skin. And I would be skeptical as you where at the beginning. But because you have build a good reputation of honestly recommending thing that help your readers, I have decided to believe your claims. Thanks for suggesting Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. I’ll give you feedback.

    Well, all those functions in one cream? Fantabulous indeed.

    I was wondering how you can use it as a moisturiser and then remover at the same time. I definitely prefer the first method of washing it off with water.

    Will definitely give this cream a try and come back with my review.

      When you want to use it as a moisturiser, you don’t wash it off! It has to absorb into the skin. When using a moisturiser you first have to make sure your skin has no makeup on, so use it as a makeup remover and wash it off and then you can reapply as a moisturiser.

      Thanks for stopping by:)

    Hi, I have been looking for a good moisturizer for my face because, I have a very dry face, I don’t wear a lot of make up because, of the face that I have a dry face. I find it best to not wear any make up at all, So, I think it is best to just wear a moisturizer instead. Where can I buy this Moisturizer? is it all that expensive? Can I get it in a store?

    You did a very good job on your website., Thank you

    Being male there is something that society doesn’t like about us using moisturiser, well, where I’m from anyway, but as I’m getting older I think that this tired old skin needs a bit of replenishing so I thought I would look around online at something that might help me keep the youthful look, lol.

    I noticed that the Embryolisse creme is a 3 in 1 cream that removes make-up, a primer before make-up and also a moisturiser but  can it just be used as a moisturiser for men who don’t wear make-up as it looks like it would do wonders for my skin?

    thanks if you can help this tired skin person, lol

      Sure you can wear it as a moisturiser alone and you don’t need to be a makeup wearer! It doesn’t discriminate against non-makeup wearers!
