    Im sure that you all heard it before, so it should come as no surprise to anyone here: Embryolisse creme is one of the best moisturizer on the market and one of  most amazing, best kept secrets in the makeup industry. A Makeup Artist’s Secret Weapon and a product so very hard to find…..unless you are living in France :)

    This brand is famous for its Lait creme concentre , a  moisturizer that comes in a metal tube and has such a thick texture that absorbes quickly into the skin . Now, to my misfortune, i couldn’t find this at a drugstore in France, but the lady at the counter recommended another great moisturizer from the same brand: Creme hydratante a l’orange (Moisturizing Cream with Extract of Oranges).  Its basically a vitamin rich moisturizer,designed to combat dry skin and give an overall soft effect.

    Like i mentioned before I have dry skin in the winter and in the summertime its pretty normal, with a slightly shiney T-zone. Nevertheless, its pretty sensitive and acne-prone.  I use this every morning/night both as a moisturizer and an eye-cream. Its hands down, one of the best moisturizer i have ever tried. Quickly, its becoming my Holy-grail product ( well, until i try the other famous one :p).

    Its actually quite a light formulation with the effects of a rich heavy moisturizer ; it sinks in to my skin really fast and it has not broken me out or anything. This product has a lovely scent and lives my skin really soft in the morning and throughout the day.What I honestly feel when I apply this, its an instant re-hydration of my skin.

    I use it as a primer as well.  No spf, but other than that , no downsides . Its a little bit  pricey ( 19 euros) but seriously, I cannot praise it enough. Definitely going to repurchase this in the future!
