Embryolisse CC Cream

Embryolisse CC Cream Review
From the company that brought us the cult fave Lait Creme Concentre, Embryolisse has launched its Embryolisse CC Cream Complexion Correcting Care with SPF20* (£32.95). This is a sun-protecting tinted moisturiser that is meant to provide a flawless complexion with smooth plumped up skin.

This CC cream comes in one shade, which I believe is good for cool-toned medium skin. I like applying this with a flat foundation brush for an even application. When applied with the fingertips, some product tends to clump into little balls so I wouldn't recommend that.

When worn on its own, it reveals a natural-satin glow that actually makes my skin feel good. Sometimes I wear this on its own when I'm relaxed off work, but when used alone indoors it isn't enough to control oil especially on my T-zone hence I set with powder on these occasions. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus seems to work well and keeps the skin matte for about 4 hours and then its time to touch up.

PROS:
1. Non-comedogenic ie. it does not break you out in spots.
2. Lovely natural satin finish.
3. Good light-medium coverage.
4. Makes the skin feel good and comfortable!

CONS:
1. It contains the Embryolisse fragrance which can irritate some.
2. It comes in one shade that leans a bit cool. It would look ashy on darker skintones.
3. SPF20 is insufficient for sun protection. I would recommend using a separate sunscreen with SPF30 and above for adequate protection.
4. It can cling to dry patches if you don't moisturise enough.

I'd like to compare this with other popular tinted moisturisers due to the light coverage with SPF content. Compared to NARS Tinted Moisturiser, this is less glowy/oily and it lasts longer. The finish is more dewy than Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser (Oil-Free version). The shade selection is much better with the NARS and Laura Mercier counterparts.

I would recommend this to those with medium toned combination to oily skin. Unfortunately the shade range (or lack of) is a big problem that they should perhaps sort out.

I am hardly impressed by tinted moisturisers, but I actually do like the way this Embryolisse CC Cream feels on my skin. I feel this is one of the better light-medium coverage face bases out there and I do recommend it, if the shade fits.

  1. It looks lovely, but my skin feels quite dry these days so don't know if it would work for me. Thanks for sharing, great review x
