Review ♥ EMBRYOLISSE LABORATORIES Lait-Creme Concentre (Multi-function Nourishing Moisturizer) / アンブリオリス モイスチャークリーム ＜保湿クリーム＞
I haven't heard of this product before nor the name of the brand so I have no idea about this. But when I searched on the internet, it seems that this is a famous product among artists. This is a moisturizer but it is said that it can also be used as a primer and this is good for all skin types.
I didn't bought this product. It was included in my Bloombox and I only got a sample size. It has 3 different full sizes; 30ml for 1500 Japanese Yen, 50ml for 1800 Japanese Yen, and 75ml for 2800 Japanese Yen.
According to them, as stated on their packaging, this is a favorite among dermatologists for decades and lauded by beauty professionals and make-up artists of the stars, this all-round product is their secret to beautiful skin. With moisurizing* and nutritive properties, thanks to a blend ingredients rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, it delivers nutrients to the skin, retains moisture and and helps protect it from aggression. The skin is supple and elastic once more. Plumped up, it is silky smooth, soft and glowing. This creamy milk leaves a comfortable satin veil even on dry skin.
According to their main or international website, this is a 24-Hour Miracle Cream and the must have product for makeup artists, models and celebrities. A cult favorite that has found its way onto countless photo shoots, television and film sets internationally. This creamy lotion is three products in one: primer, moisturizer, and make-up remover. Its formula remains extremely simple and effective with nourishing ingredients that restores the skin’s natural glow and gives a boost to tired dehydrated skin.
Since this product was distributed in Japan, they have covered the information at the back with Japanese translated information but I have managed to remove the sticker so here it is;

It has a scent similar to some hand creams. Sometimes it bothers me and sometimes not. It depends on my mood. I guess the scent is too much for me but it smells good.
The difference can not be seen with the foundation on also. The effect of this product is more on texture than appearance. With the foundation on, I can still feel the effect of the moisturizer. Even the side with the moisturizer was already covered with the foundation, it still feels smooth and I noticed that the foundation dried faster on that side.
Though it is stated that this is good for all skin types, I recommend it more to those who have sensitive, dry and normal skin. It does not prevent oil from coming out. After 7 hours, my face with moisturizer and without moisturizer were both oily. I am now in a humid place, in Philippines, so I oiled up more than before. This will be good to use during winter, in Japan, since my face really gets dry during that time. But one thing is for sure on this product, it keeps your face moisturized after long hours. Though it doesn`t prevent oil, after blotting, my face still feels smooth.
