Hello beauties! :3

I deem there isn’t even a person who hasn’t heard of this famous Embryolisse concentrate now. The beauty bloggers are rattling about it, as well as many eminent makeup artists. So, there’s a standard question from me - is the product really as good as described? I don’t believe in panacea, this is why I actually bought this product so I could test it out myself.

So, there’s only my face to experiment on, and I guess it’s the high time to get started.

It looks like a drugstore product, really. There’s so much information given on the box, plus they added instructions on a sheet of paper inside.

There was also a small form to fill out, though I still can’t find time to do it and keep on ignoring it.

Inside the box, aside from the instructions, there was also a small tube with the cream (obvious, isn’t it?). Right here, I want to say that the product looks rather unusual for me. The tube is made of metal, and I don’t have many products which are packed with metal, you know. Honestly speaking, I don’t actually appreciate such packaging. The soft plastic tube is way easier to make the product come out. I can see it now, when the tube is almost used up, it is especially hurtful to me.

The product

It’s a white creamy substance with a pretty strange and not really pleasant scent. I can’t even think of what it reminds me of. Maybe some herbs? Or petroleum products with a muted aroma. I don’t know!

This concentrate cream is supposed to have a very lightweight texture, though during application I can feel it on my skin a lot. Lucky, this sensation vanishes once the product is sunk in.

Embryolisse concentrated works nice as a makeup primer. Of course, it has glycerine in the ingredients, this is why the formula is very gliding.

It also works nice as a SOS product to prepare your face for any occasion, even if your skin is in very bad condition.

Don’t forget to cleanse your skin well, peel it off with a scrub and then apply this product for 20 minutes with a good and thick layer on.

After 20 minutes, wipe the product off and start doing your makeup.

After this procedure, your foundation won’t even think about disappearing from your skin. (well only in cases when your skin is okay and it isn’t dying).

But you have to be ready to know that this cream will make your pores work and hence, your T-zone with shine with oil some time after the application of your foundation, especially in summer.


I decided to start my experiment right after I was hospitalized and then eventually got to go home. At that time my skin looked like it was out of a movie about a zombie apocalypse. My skin was dehydrated, there was a rash and of course it was flaking off. That was pretty obvious after a long term 24/7 treatment, that I was super nervous.

I read about the side effects of the product which some girls mentioned and they had pimples and clogged pores. But I couldn't be stopped with them. My skin already was in such terrible condition that it could have never become worse. I guess that it’s reasonable that I don’t show you the BEFORE pictures, otherwise, I’d had to put a 21+ sign to my review.

But all in all the concentrate worked good. Most of all I used to use Embryolisse as a daytime fluid-moisturizer. (Because at night I could trust only my go-to Biotherm balm and nothing else.)

Even when my skin came back to its normal condition, I still keep on using it and I assure you that my makeup applied over this concentrate looks way better rather than when I don’t use it. Thanks to its texture, it felt as though the Embryolisse could really “fix”my flakey skin and make it look visually glowing with health.

this is my face after one month and a half of use: you can see that my skin looks more or less good

But… I like this cream even more when I started to use it as a body moisturizer.

I especially worship it after epilation.

In summary

All in all, I turn to the Biotherm moisturizing cream now in my skin care game, because for me it feels as though the Embryolisse doesn’t give enough moisture for my skin.

Besides, it feels too heavy and I deem it’ll be better for very dry skin, rather than normal. If your skin is oily or you tend to break out, then this isn’t a product for you. It’s better to look for some lighter moisturizers then.

And despite all the things that I’ve said, I’m still planning to buy a Lait-Creme Fluide by the Embryolisse too, which is very close to this concentrate ingredients-wise.

You might wonder why and I’d say that as a body moisturizer! It’s just a bomb product for my body skin!

Thanks for your attention to my post.

Stay always charming!

See you :3
