Welp. Another over-hyped, under-performing product, whose praise is totally unmerited. Granted, it’s not bad, per say, but it’s not great either, and it’s certainly not worth all of the buzz it receives. The only reason that I believe it gets all of the hype that it does, is because it IS a fairly versatile product (meaning, it’s so basic and no-frills that it works on most skin types), and it DOES soften the skin and wear nicely under makeup….But a lot of moisturizers do as well, and this contains no revolutionary ingredients to warrant the price tag or “miracle” claim. You can literally find the same quality products with very similar ingredients at the drugstore for a fraction of the cost (i.e. Pond’s Dry Skin Cream pretty much does the exact same thing as this, has similar ingredients, comes in a much bigger tub, and is 1/3 of the price).

Embryolisse touts this as a “do-all” product that primes, moisturizes, removes makeup, and can be used as a mask. Like I said, it does wear well under makeup and moisturize, but so should any half decent face cream? The priming claim is extremely gimmicky, as that only really means that it smooths and softens the skin for makeup application….Which, again, any moisturizer does for the most part. As far as removing makeup goes, any mineral oil (or any oil, really) based product can do that. The only facet I don’t have a comment for is the mask claim, as I have not tried it as a mask. However, based on the ingredients, my guess is that it would be just as lackluster as a mask as it is as a cream. You can make more effective DIY masks for much cheaper.

To top off the mediocrity of this product, it also has a fairly strong florally scent, which many people find irritating, and can aggravate sensitive skin. Some of the ingredients are also comedogenic. I haven’t broken out from this, but I’d be cautious if you’re super acne-prone.

Long story short, this product does what it claims and all, but it’s sure as hell no miracle and you can find better quality for the same price or less. The ingredients list is literally just water, mineral oil, and a bunch of emulsifiers. Why pay $30+ for that? Skip this.
