This product has been a French cult status skincare product for decades and it has been a favorite for makeup artists. I have carried this in my kit for years and I used to have to order it from beauty supply stores. Now you can find Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart and BeautyBoutique.ca! They are carrying both the 30ml/$21.75 and 75ml/$38 sizes. I am so excited to have this essential product in my pro kit more accessible!
What makes Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré such a must have? Well foremost for me is its ability to intensely moisturize and nourish skin in a flash. It absorbs beautifully into the skin and makes the perfect base for makeup. It’s a 3-in-1 multitasking moisturizer that primes, hydrates, and can even be used as a makeup remover. (Think of the old-school cold cream method of removing makeup.) It is meant for all skin types and I’ve found this to be accurate given the number of years I’ve been using it on clients with widely ranging skin types. It includes a combo of shea butter and emollient oils to really repair and plump skin for an instantly healthier, fresher complexion.

I’ve also recently begun testing out a couple other Embryolisse products. When my clients have oilier skin types I’ve started using the Embryolisse Hydra-Mat Emulsion. I love that this product does a beautiful job of hydrating and softening skin, thanks to the inclusion of glycerin and apricot oil, while still absorbing excess oil and mattifying the skin. So far it has been working beautifully for my clients.

The Embryolisse Artist Secret Radiant Eye ($35 US) is such a cool product! Literally. This dual action beauty and treatment stick cools the eye area on contact. It feels amazing. Massaging the eye contour with the stick several times from inner to outer corner helps boost radiance, reduce dark circles, and really helps reduce puffiness. It feels soooooo good. It has a really light almost watery feel that moisturizing without adding any heaviness or greasiness under makeup. I am loving this littly thing!
