Winter Godsend

I was honored to participate and win in a rafflecopter contest from I had never heard of this company or product prior to winning this contest and so I did some Google searching and this is a bit of the information I obtained:
Embryolisse was founded by a pharmacist in the 1950's to create his own pharmaceutical brand to meet -expectations and acceptance of his profession. The website has a lot of cool information and products. Check it out, I have found there is some great skincare products.

I won the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate Nourishing Moisturizer. Advice for use: Apply morning and/or evening to clean dry face. Massage in gently without applying pressure, and leave to penetrate. Can also be used to cleanse the skin, take off makeup, as a repairing mask, an after shave cram or baby-care product.

It is a beautiful light fluffy yet substantial cream, un-fragranced and very smooth. I thought the first time I used it after cleaning my face at night that it was maybe too much for my face as it felt a bit heavy and I was worried I would break out. I shelved it until this nasty cold and ice hit Texas and once my nose started peeling and my face got wind-burned, I thought I better get this out and see if it would help as I have no other "heavier" creams. In Texas I normally only wore lighter moisturizers because its so dang hot and humid, cream makes everything run down my face! I got this out 3 nights ago and lo and behold this stuff is miraculous for dry, irritated and downright pissed off skin! I have only been using it at night before bed and spot treating my nose and cheeks and this cream has been awesome! I have not broken out and my face feels smoother and plumper and my nose area almost immediately started to heal and prevent further breakdown. That is an A+ in my book. It's now got a permanent place in my winter skincare rotation and I am so grateful that I won this skincare gem.

Have you heard or tried any of the Embryolisse products? Any recommendations? Have a safe and happy holiday season!!! Sherry
