Embryolisse Lotion Micellaire & Radiant eye cream

These are some of several products that are a little overdue for review. Do you ever pick up a product and think 'oh actually I need to review this' and then you check to see how long it is since you received it and it's a hell of a lot longer than you realised. Then came Christmas and New Year and then recovering from the start of a new year and so yes this one is a little overdue!

Embryolisse are a brand that I've only personally heard of because of the rise in popularity of French Pharmacy products over here in the UK. To begin with samples started appearing in beauty subscription boxes such as Birchbox and Glossybox and now you can find the likes of Bioderma and La Roche-Posay on the shelves of your local Boots. Although I have been a subscriber to both Glossybox and Birchbox on and off (and currently receive PR Birchboxes) Embryolisse is a brand I hadn't actually received any samples of. So when I was contacted to ask if I'd like to try a couple of their products I agreed.

I was sent the Embryolisse Lotion Micellaire* and Radiant eye cream*. I'm sure you're all aware of micellar waters by now but if not this is a cleansing water containing something called micelles, which attract dirt and oil which are then lifted away from the skin. This particular one contains cornflower, chamomile and witch-hazel water combined with glycerin to soften and smooth the skin. This is a very gentle cleanser that can be used on the lips and eyes and is claimed that this removes even waterproof products.

A few years ago I took part in a micellar water testing blind trial for the website Escentual and I discovered that some micellar waters can upset my sensitive, reactive skin. One I even had to stop using because it made my face too sore. However, I haven't had any problem with the Embryolisse Lotion Micellaire and have enjoyed using it. It does remove make-up easily and does work well on stubborn products, although I don't actually use anything waterproof. It does leave my skin slightly tacky after use, which I find with most micellars, but it doesn't leave my skin sore or dehydrated. It does contain fragrance though, so this is worth noting if you are sensitive to such products.

The Radiant eye cream comes in stick form, similar to The Body Shop's Eyes cube, which is the product I was using just before this one. I found this one to be much softer than the Eye's cube though, meaning it glides very easily along the eye area. However the downside of this was revealed when I wound the product up to see how much was left and discovered I'd nearly used the whole thing in a very short period of time. Also as I found with the Eyes cube when you use a product like this you do have to be careful that when you get to the end of the product you don't catch the plastic on your skin. I didn't particularly notice any improvement to my dark circles, but then I never do, but it was a nicely moisturising product that feels cooling and is a pleasure to use. I think it just runs out too quickly.

The Embryolisse Lotion Micellaire is £17.99 for 250ml and the Radiant eye cream £20.50 and can be purchased through the official Embryolisse website or from your local Boots.
