Anna's Review | Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

Hi everyone,

I know, it's been a while!

I thought I would share with you all my quick review on a well known beauty product, Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. I watched a video about it ages by pixiwoo's Sam & Nic (YouTube) who swear by it so obviously I got a little curious. I bought mine for £10, available from Love-Makeup

It is a rich, creamy moisturiser which does what it says on the box. I however found it left a satin sheen on my face which I am not a fan of. I thought it wasn't hydrating enough for my combination skin either. It does make my foundation glide on beautifully, but I wouldn't repurchase it just for that and because of the steep price tag!

All in all, it isn't a bad product. Everyone's skin is different so what may not work for me, may work for you. I just think that my Olay moisturiser suits my skin better and is far easier to obtain as I can just pop into my local Boots or Superdrug store! Review will follow soon.

Have you tried the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré? What did you think of it? Let me know what your holy grail moisturiser is!

Yes, that's right! I have finally got my mitts on one of the most loved skincare products in the industry, Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré.

I am so excited to try this and I will let you guys know how I get on with it!

Average day

Hi everyone,

Okay, so this isn't going to be an interesting blog post but I felt the need to write it. Today has not been the most amazing day, pretty busy actually with a hint of stress. It consisted of handing in 4 pieces of uni work and 2 long lectures! I am so glad that now I have a few less things to think about though!

I know I shouldn't really spend too much money on makeup (I am a student after all!) but after hearing so many great things about this product I just had to order it! I won't mention it for now, but keep an eye out! :)
