When I first heard about the Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentrate Moisturiser, I did what anyone would do... I jumped on Google to see what all the hype was about.
Search result after search result, I read reviews from makeup artists, celebrities, magazine editors and everyday people claiming this French pharmaceutical cream was their number one favourite skincare product.
No one was saying anything negative. In fact, Adore customers rate it an impressive 4.6 out of five from nearly 500 reviews.
Apparently, this $42 cream also has a minimum of five uses (as seen in this TikTok video from @embryolisse_australia):
1. A primer for flawless makeup application.
2. A moisturiser for all skin types.
3. A makeup remover.
4. An overnight hydration mask.
5. A post-shave body cream.
Only problem? Embryolisse was almost impossible to find in Australia.
But finally, they're back and available at Adore Beauty.
Being an unofficial aficionado of all things for dry and sensitive skin, I've been using the original Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentrate as well as the newly launched Lait Crème Sensitive Cream to compare the pair.
Here's everything you need to know about this cult product, including whether it's worth the hype and which one is right for your skin.
What Is Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentré Moisturiser?
Excellent question, here's the short version:

It creates a smooth barrier for any makeup base so if you have dry or patchy skin, this is a must-have to apply before your foundation for a flawless finish.
Is Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentré non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging)? Yep! This means the Embryolisse cream will keep you hydrated and glowy, but never greasy.
