Bonjour! You might have encountered and read the book French Women Don’t Get Fat by Mireille Giuliano but I think someone should also write a book about how French women age gracefully. Their skin is just remarkable. We may never have their genes but at least we can afford to buy the products they use for their skincare regimen.

Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre or also known as the 24-hour miracle creme has been in the market since the 1950s. It continues to have a cult following among known make up artists and celebrities both here and abroad. Lisa Eldridge, Samantha Chapman, and Jigs Mayuga are among the popular make-up artists who have this iconic white and blue tube in their make-up stash.

Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre is a nourishing moisturizer for all skin types but it is also used as a primer to achieve a dewy look and to spot clean in case you make a mistake in applying your jet black liner. It is really a versatile product that delivers.

My skin type is combination. I have dry skin patches and it’s quite difficult to prepare my skin prior to applying make-up. I have tried different brands of moisturizers from cream to gel, expensive to affordable ones but only Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre can give an instant relief to my dry skin without making me look like I have an oil drill on my forehead. There’s this one popular gel type moisturizer for combination skin that I have previously used though it was able to reduce the appearance of the dry skin patches but soon after I applied my foundation the dry skin started to show up again. I opted to choose the gel type which is made for combination skin in the hopes that it can give enough skin nourishment while keeping the oiliness at bay but then… it failed.

To celebrate the 65th year of the 24-hour Miracle Creme, Embryolisse released the product in a gold limited edition packaging

Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre is the only moisturizer that can provide my skin its much needed nourishment all through out the day with no traces of dryness at all. Its texture is very light and almost runny. A pea-size amount is enough to cover the entire face. The 75ml tube can last for several months that even if it is relatively expensive you can still say that it gives a good value for your money.

It was in November 2012 when CareFreeShopper first brought this product to the Philippines and made it easily available to the beauty junkies in the country. After almost four years, it continues to be a bestseller at the online store. I have recommended this product among friends and clients and I have heard nothing but praises about how great it is. The fact that they repurchase and even hoard several tubes (as back ups of their back ups) is a true testament that indeed, this is the holy grail among all moisturizers that are available in the market.
