Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

Today I’m back with a review on one of my latest discoveries in terms of skincare, which is the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. I had heard about this product many years ago and have always wanted to get my hands on this product: some makeup artists would use this cream on models during fashion shows… I finally had the chance to grab the product while shopping with a friend of mine and I’ve been trying this out for almost two months now. Let me get straight to the point: this is not overhyped for no reason, it is definitely a holy grail!

I’m talking about a moisturizer which has a light texture that penetrates rapidly into the skin. It has become my greatest ally during this cold and dry period of the year. I squeeze about a hazelnut size of the cream and rub the product onto my entire face. It leaves my skin smooth and hydrated for the whole day. I find that it really fights against the formation of dry patches that could ruin makeup application. I have been struggling to find a rich moisturizer that could help me go through the winter but those days are gone now, I don’t have to worry anymore! As it’s written on the packaging, this cream acts as a perfect makeup base as well! I have nothing more to say about this product other than I’m in love.

Night time skincare routine

I don’t change my routine frequently since I am the type of person who tends to stick to a routine if she finds something working. My skin is prone to redness, dryness and is quite sensitive. Disclaimer; what works for me might not work for you.

These days, I have been using SVR Micellar Solution to take my eye makeup off with the help of a few cotton buds that I run on my lashes. I like to double cleanse with theSAEM Snail Deep Cleansing cleanser which has the weirdest texture ever, similar to white glue that adheres to the skin to remove impurities leaving it deeply hydrated. I said that I like to stick to a routine but if I feel like a little bit of change, it would probably be choosing another cleansing method. I will definitely write an article about the different types of cleansing products I use in the future!

My night time cream of choice is Skinfood Bounce Grape cream. I believe the brand came out with the Bounce Grape line only recently. This cream has a light gel texture that penetrates into the skin almost instantly. It delivers high level of moisture and leaves your skin smoother than before. I have been having less and less dry patches on my face thanks to this gel cream!

To get rid of any pimple or imperfection, I have been using La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ for a few years now. Great purchase, this tube format has been my ally from the first day of purchase. A little bit goes a long way. I usually dab a bit of product on every ‘little monster’ and my discolorations as well.

My favorite eye cream is Innisfree Orchid Eye cream. I feel like I am talking about this eye cream way too much but what can I do about it, this stuff works wonders on my eyes. If you want to know more about my thoughts here is the link to the review I made not too long ago.

Eventually, I try to use a light scrub once a week or two to remove dead skin. I like the Clinique 7 day scrub cream which is not too abrasive for my skin type.
