The French know a thing or two about skincare and there are a number of luxe French beauty brands that prove it. From the celebrity-approved Augustinus Bader to the classic Creme de La Mer, there is no shortage of French brands that deliver on their promise of soft, smooth and supple skin.
But luxury skincare isn’t always affordable, especially coming from the serene streets of Paris. That’s why we’re big fans of Laboratoires Embryolisse, a French pharmacy brand that’s been around since the 1950s. A cult favorite in Europe, the brand’s line of affordable face and body products is now available in the U.S. through Amazon, with products starting at just $11.
One of the most popular Embryolisse products is their Lait Creme Concentre Fluide, a multi-fuctional moisturizer for the face and body. Dubbed the “24 Hour Miracle Cream” by skincare junkies and reviewers, the lotion can be used as a daily moisturizer, cleanser, make-up remover, aftersun cream or after-shave. The best part: it’s available on Amazon right now for just $14.
Embryolisse Lait Creme Fluid, 2.54 Fl Oz
The Lait-Crème Fluid is a lightweight lotion that goes on smooth and clear — no streaky white marks here. The light texture is easily absorbed, with no stickiness or greasy residue.
Made in France, the cream’s formula features a mix of shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera and soy proteins. Together, the ingredients work to help soften and soothe dry skin, and protect the skin barrier from external stressors. The result: a smoother, brighter, healthier-looking complexion.
We’ve been using the Lait-Crème Fluid for months now and it’s gentle enough even for our sensitive skin (the 75 ml bottle size is also perfect for traveling). Users say the lightweight cream is super moisturizing, and they praise the thin texture. Many also like the subtle floral fragrance, with one reviewer writing that “it reminds me of camellias.”
The Embryolisse moisturizer has an overall 4.4-star rating (out of five) from hundreds of verified shoppers online. Get the Embryolisse 24 Hour Miracle Cream on sale now for $14 on Amazon.com.
