Embryolisse Nourishing and Moisturizing Cream

Embryolisse Nourishing and Moisturizing Cream

I've seen the Embryolisse cream around for a couple of years. It was always shown as something every makeup professional needs in their kit. As one-of-a-kind.

And because of that when I saw it on Notino, I had to pick it up. I mean, what is this wonder and why haven't I seen it in our stores before?

I opened it somewhere mid-October and now, at the beginning of December, I'm finally seeing the end of it. I'm hitting the pan, or well, squeezing the everloving last bits out of it. 

Let's see how I liked it and what it did for me. 

Embryolisse Nourishing and Moisturizing Cream

Indulge your skin with intensive care to achieve velvety soft and silky smooth skin with immaculate elasticity. The nourishing and hydrating Embryolisse Moisturizers Creme Riche Hydrantante cream takes care of dry and extremely dry skin by hydrating it intensively and enhancing its appearance. Simultaneously, it promotes skin's natural protective layer and cell renewal and eliminates the unpleasant feeling of tenseness and fine lines caused by dehydration. The creamy texture of the product is soothing and creates a long-lasting feeling of comfort.

This is a very light cream that leaves your skin feeling moisturized. It feels like water mixed with something and well, thus very moisturizing. 
It doesn't leave any film behind and it isn't sticky. 

I actually really like the texture of the cream. But for winter months it may not be enough as it's very moisturizing without any occlusive to it. So layering may help with that.

After application, the skin feels ready for the next steps or makeup. It works great as a makeup primer. 

  • hydrates and nourishes
  • strengthens the protective barrier
  • promotes cell renewal
  • soothes and brings a feeling of comfort
  • promotes elasticity, softens and smooths


The cream comes in a metal tube that dispenses product with squeezing. It isn't the easiest tube to squeeze once you get to the end of it. But before that, it's easy to manage, and the dents from squeezing are very visible. 

Other than that, it's a very hygienic type of packaging and has a clean design. It looks timeless. While looking at the design I wasn't sure if it was something from the '90s or an expensive contemporary design. It's intriguing.

The scent is a love or hate kind of scent. It's very strong, artificial and probably we could do without it. It is very perfumey and because of that, it gives the cream a heavy feeling. I mean, that's too bad because with a different scent it would feel lighter - closer to the texture it actually is. 


+ The cream is a basic very moisturizing cream
+ Has a great formulation and feels lightweight
+ Is a staple in many makeup cases
+ Sinks right into the skin and moisturizes it
+ Can be found on sales or boundless (I got mine in a bundle with a compact powder and brush)
+ Clean design
+ Does last quite a bit (for me it was 2 months for 75 ml)


- The scent. It's overpowering
- Price is 13€/75 ml or 10€/30ml

I like this cream as it's a basic hydrating cream. I feel it would be great for almost anyone except the super dry skin types or ones that are on retinol and similar treatments. But for everyone else, it can be a nice basic cream. I don't think I've ever used a similarly textured cream. It sinks right into your skin leaving a feeling of freshness. It actually reminds me of a Korean hand cream I had many, many years ago. It leaves my skin similarly soft and I love that. 
My only wish is that they'd switch the scent, but that is deeply personal. I am a fan of fresh scents in face creams. 
The price isn't the cheapest, but you can get it in bundles and sometimes on sales. That's the way I got mine - in a package with two extra products. And it was well worth the price - it felt like I received a really special gift. 

Have you tried this cream? What do you think of it?
