Almost every time you read an interview with a famous model, where they talk about their backstage secrets, most of them tend to mention Lait-Creme Concentre by Embryolisse Laboratoires and it always makes me wrinkle my nose a little, as it’s not just the ‘supers’ who love this product.
I have been buying it from French pharmacies since my early 20s and since then it had remained my beauty staple too. It has been quite frustrating at times to run out and have to wait for a trip to France or to beg my girlfriends to bring me a couple of tubes if they were going, as no one was stocking it in the UK.
Why do I like this products so much? Well, for starters, it’s very versatile. I use it as a cleanser, as a moisturiser or even a mask, when my skin is feeling a bit dry, especially post-skiing. It works for all skin types, including sensitive ( it has been developed under pharmaceutical supervision and has been tested by dermatologists using a limited number of carefully selected ingredients )and can also be used on your toddlers skin too. It reinforces your skin’s defences, works on its hydro-lipid barrier, helps cell renewal and protects the skin from outside aggressors, like heat and cold. It has lots of fatty acids ( combining shea butter, aloe vera, beeswax and soy proteins ) and vitamins and it never ceases to amaze me how great it makes my skin feel and look.
I am also happy to report that it has landed on the British shores and is stocked up on Cult Beauty site, priced £17.50 ( at the time of publishing, there was a waiting list for it, so when you manage to place an order, order not one, but a couple .) and I promise you you will be in for a pleasant surprise that will have a lasting effect on you .)
