Maybe it's because I don't have super dry skin this moisturiser didn't work for me or maybe it's because the hype killed it. Either way I have the suspicion that if Embryolisse wasn't so hard to get ahold of it would be just another generic, off-the-shelf moisturiser, which it totally is by the way. I would go as far to say that my pot of Norwegian Formula Comfort Balm is better than this. No actually, I am saying that.
This tube of Embryolisse Lait-crème Concentrè has sat almost completely disregarded with barely even a glance thrown in its direction. On the rare occasion I did use it, the formula left my skin feeling greasy and it simply didn't want to sink in. I don't have dry skin but it's not adverse to hydration - this moisturiser provided nothing but a greasy top layer that felt pretty nasty.
For people with super dry skin this might be a good choice, although I can't see the benefit personally; this cream would only create a barrier to prevent further dryness (a bit like Vaseline) and not really solve the problem. I'd recommend foregoing the channel crossing and picking up Origins Make a Difference Plus+ instead.
Have you tried any cult beauty products?
Did they live up to the hype?
