Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre

December 6, 2013

When I was at IMATS in Sydney in September I decided to invest in a large tube of Embryolisse Laboratories Lait-Creme Concentre. I mainly bought this because I have been loving French skincare lately, this generally hard to find in Australia, and because the Pixiwoo sisters always rave about this product. The Pixiwoo sisters have dry skin and use this during the day, but I tend to use this only at night because I have oily combination skin and I don't like using thick moisturisers during the day. I do find it important to use hydrating products at night (while greasiness isn't an issue) because my skin can be quite dehydrated even though it's never dry.

I don't remember which stall I bought this from, but I do remember that I paid $25 for this 75ml tube. This will probably retail for $30-$35 for this large tube, as most products were discounted at IMATS. This isn't the easiest product to track down in Australia, but you can check out the Embryolisse Australian website for stockists.

The ingredients are listed on the box but not on the tube. You can see that there aren't too many ingredients in this moisturiser, which is a good thing when it comes to skincare. Also the main ingredient is water and the smallest ingredient is perfume, so this may be a good range for people who are sensitive to perfumes.

The packaging of this is pretty basic. It comes in a metal tube that has an unoffensive white, blue and grey design on it. It also has French and English writing on the container.

The Embryolisse website says the following about the Lait-Creme Concentre:

Ensures intensive moisturising thanks to its triple action - natural wheat proteins and hyaluronic acid capture and fix moisture, sweet almond oil and beeswax reconstitute the skin's protective barrier, and antioxidant vitamins A, E and F stimulate cell renewal. The fine lines caused by dehydration and the feelings of tautness disappear; the skin is repaired, supple and elastic, smooth and soft. The creamy texture is soothing, providing immediate and lasting comfort. Paraben-free preservative.

The product itself is a thick moisturiser that feels quite luxurious and smooth on your skin and has very little scent to it. I find that this keeps my skin soft and hydrated and you only need a tiny amount to cover your whole face (I have been using this for 2 months now and I feel like I have barely made a dent). There is nothing majorly amazing about this moisturiser, but it is a great basic to have in your skincare routine and it is a pleasure to use.

If this was a product that was more readily available in Australia, I honestly think it would be a moisturiser that a lot of people would really enjoy using. It doesn't have any frills, but you can tell this is a really nice quality moisturiser.


  1. I've wanted to try this out for the longest time and now even more so. I have normal to dry skin so I think it would really suit me. Great review!

  2. I've tried this and it is amazing during winter when my skin is all dried and flakey. Try it at night instead if you have combination to oily skin. I find that the effects of this product are not very apparent during summer. Hope this helps! :)
