My first introduction to Embryolisse was at IMATS – I was still quite new to blogging and I’d heard so much about the product from other bloggers as being a cult make-up artist favourite. I was desperate to try it. The USP on Embryolisse is that it’s a super-gentle hydrator which is why make-up artists love it; they can put it on anyone’s skin and be confident that it will soothe and hydrate without upsetting the balance of the complexion. It’s something of a Marmite product though – those who love it are completely besotted, won’t-use-anything-else devotees, while others have felt it doesn’t live up to the hype. I pretty much always have a tube of Embryolisse at hand – I don’t use it every day, or even every week, but regularly enough and fondly enough that I buy more when I run out.
The new launch from Embryolisse is so sweet – the classic Lait with gorgeous packaging, and a macadamia oil charged lipgloss in the lid. It’s more of a balm in construction with shea and Vitamin E, but has a pretty shimmer to it that makes it a little bit more make-up than a plain balm.
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate + Gloss (£15.99) doesn’t launch til October but well worth keeping an eye out for. It’s particularly useful for skin that has been over made-up – you know when it starts to feel dry and a bit sore from constant putting on and taking off? It’s a blogger problem, I know, but I’ve found Embryolisse really does act as a soother.
