The formula is very creamy with a non-greasy feeling. It absorbs and blends easily in your skin and is paraben free. This product also encourages the rebuilding of your hydrolipidic skin layer, which is a protective barrier layer on the surface of your skin. This layer protects the skin against infection, irritation, allergic reactions and dehydration. The skin's pH balance is approximately 5.4 and is achieved by your body's own acidic secretions and hormones, but if you wash your face with a harsh cleanser or even a common bar of soap [pH anywhere from 9 - 11] it will break down that protective skin barrier. Depending on how sensitive your skin is, it can take anywhere from two to thirty six hours for your skin to restore to it's natural balance, but Embryolisse Lait-crème Concentré helps encourage the skin layer to restore faster.
I loved this product so much, I got in touch with the company and was lucky enough to talk to Michelle Shaffer, who happens to be the Vice President of Embryolisse. I wanted to purchase some samples so I could send client's home with Embryolisse, so they could enjoy the benefits of this product for more than just their photo shoot. Michelle was kind enough to send a variety of samples for me to share with my clients and every single one of them has been delighted to go home with samples. [Thank you so much, Michelle!]
A small tube, 1 fluid ounce is being included in the January 2012 giveaway, so one of my blog viewers can test out Embryolisse Lait-crème Concentré for themselves. The packaging is very plain and clean....but I think it represents the lotion well, no gimmicks or fancy promises...just a great moisturizing product that works with all skin types, and safe enough for babies. Of course I have to mention it is not fragrance free, but the scent is not strong and dissipates shortly after you apply it. Even though I prefer fragrance free or unscented, the scent in the Embryolisse Lait-crème Concentré is a light floral scent and doesn't bother me one bit.
