I started using the ever so popular Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre a few years back when I saw it in a friend's kit & got curious. It absorbed nicely & felt really refreshing even hours after application. I started using it 2ce a day.
This product has been a Makeup Artist staple for some time b/c it's used as a face primer, moisturizer & makeup remover. My favorite primer has always been Laura Mercier's for it's light weight feel, but this goes on in a similar way. I have used it as a primer & it's worked wonders. It's light but you know it's there. I use it year round on myself & clients w/all different skin types.
My Esthetics background reminds me to always be aware of what I'm putting on a person's skin & what can happen if I'm not mindful. Thankfully I've never had anyone leave my chair scratching at their skin but you do hear horror stories. That's why I'm always looking for versatile products like this for my kit so a broad range of clients can benefit equally. I've used this on every skin type and it's been a success every time. It's paraben free & has no dyes or fragrances added. After initial use it will keep for 12 months but it won't last that long if you use it often, and you will. This lotion is what the company's famous for, I'm guessing b/c it's so versatile.

I usually stock up on this annually at The Makeup Show but I didn't attend last year so I contacted the company to find out how I could still apply my professional discount. The representative was responsive and extremely sweet. She sent me a sample of every product they make including a full size eye cream. I was elated! I gave some to clients & tried as much as I could for myself.
I have to say the entire line is amazing. I've gotten great feedback from everyone I gave a sample to. I was told the anti aging products are really nice, especially the serums.
I even fell in love w/the Creme Riche Hydratante which is a heavier creme that I used at night. It's richer so naturally it's more moisturizing. The Soin Contour Des Yeux Lissant (soothing eye contour care) & Hydra-Masque (hydrating mask) were also good.
I have yet to use the Lait Creme Concentre as anything but a moisturizer on myself but like I said I used it as a primer & one 1 occasion as a makeup remover & it's wonderful.
Keep it Prettie!
