Embryolisse the crème de la crème of French skin creams
Embryolisse: favored by dermatologists for decades, this cream is a French beauty secret that has been transmitted from mother to daughter for generations.
For several months, I have been seeing the old fashioned Embryolisse tubes here and there.
Favored by dermatologists for decades, this cream is a French beauty secret that has been transmitted from mother to daughter for generations. It is now making a comeback.
The reviews are excellent. Embryolisse is proven to have hydrating and nutritional properties which provide the skin with suppleness, comfort and elasticity.
I wanted to find out more about this “so very French” cream… nobody is better equipped to answer these questions than a beauty professional!
I met Cédric Jolivet on the set of a photo shoot. He works in NY as a makeup artist in the fashion industry.
“Like many of my makeup artist colleagues, I love and use exclusively the Embryolisse cream! Its texture is perfect to hydrate any type of skin and is fit for all ages. It is the ideal base for makeup. I have never had any problems using it, no matter the type of foundation or corrector I use. It is always a perfect mix. I just adapt the quantity of cream I use according to the type of skin, whether it’s on the dry or the oily side. After a little massage for better absorption, I like to pat the skin dry by using a tissue so that the makeup will stick better. (Too much cream on the skin will make the foundation unstable) To obtain a natural effect, I like to dilute a dab of Embryolisse in the foundation. It helps to avoid the “cake” effect. Last but not least, Embryolisse is absolutely fabulous for makeup removal! I apply it generously on the face in gentle circular motion and I then remove the makeup with cotton squares. This way, the skin is cleaned and hydrated. Perfect for sensitive skins.”
A wonderful cream paraben-free made only with emollient oil and natural active ingredients such as shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera and soy proteins.
