Don’t be surprised if you’ve never even heard of Embryolisse, because it currently has no home in the UK. However, on my trip to IMATS, where Embryolisse had a stand, it was the product causing the biggest buzz amongst beauty bloggers. In fact, Embryolisse is over fifty years old, born in Paris, and found in the make-up artist kits of note. I was given a sample pack and did a quick facial at home using:
Milky Make-Up Removal Emulsion
Exfoliating Care Cream
Floral Lotion Alcohol Free Tonic
And finished with the cult product that’s causing the fuss, Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate, filled with skin nourishing ingredients, such as shea butter, beeswax, soy and aloe vera. Like Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream, it’s a multi-purpose product for any dry issues and loved by make up artists for its ability to stuff moisture back into weary complexions – it commonly used as a primer. Post-facial, my skin was ultra-ultra soft.
Those who love their skincare natural won’t love Embryolisse – the ingredient lists read like an hommage to parabens, but if you have a more laissez-faire attitude to ingredients, it is really a very beautiful range and suitable for sensitive skin types.
The biggest question, however, is why no retailers have picked up on this range – in my view, a best seller waiting to happen.
PS: Some hours on and many comments later – there are places in the UK to secure Embryolisse, but was thinking it more odd that no mainstream stores have it or even mainstream online retailers.
