I recently realized that because I’m always testing new products, I don’t often mention the OG products that have been in my kit for years. I’m starting a new review series called Tried and True to let my readers know what’s been in my kit for years and to give you a glimpse into what actually comes with me on just about every job. What better way to kick off this series than with my favorite go-to, Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate.
I started using Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate when it was an industry secret, and you could only buy it in France. Nowadays, just about every makeup artist and makeup lover knows about it. It’s also much easier to find.
A Lifesaver for Dry, Dehydrated Skin
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate is also known as the 24 Hour Miracle Cream and it is exactly that. If anyone in my chair has dry or dehydrated skin, I use a healthy layer of this moisturizer during the skin prep stage, and it transforms the skin into a soft glowing canvas. The company claims that the Lait Creme Concentrate is a primer and moisturizer in one, which seems accurate based on the consistency.
Works Well Under Makeup
The Lait Creme Concentrate almost feels whipped, but it goes on light and does not make you look greasy. It also wears beautifully underneath makeup and will not pill or turn you into a shiny mess by the end of the day. It makes your foundation glide on and it gives your skin a healthy glow. I’d recommend Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate for anyone with normal to dry skin. I also love it on mature skin. If you’re oily, it will probably be too heavy for you.
As a makeup artist, my job is to make the skin look perfect, and this creme does just that. It pulls through for me whenever I need to really plump up the skin. This moisturizer doesn’t offer much in terms of actual skincare, and it probably won’t treat of any skin issues, but if you’re looking for a simple skin prep product that will instantly transform your face into luminous perfection, this is it.
