From hanging backstage at fashion week or on set for shoots, we've spied plenty of makeup artists with a specific blue and white tube of moisturizer in their kits. Now, the French cult classic cream from Embryolisse is launching in Target this week (Lait Crème Concentré, $28;, so you don’t need a trip to France to stock up (even though Paris is always a good idea). Here are some of the reasons why makeup artists love it, and why you might want to consider adding it to your own regimen:

“I've found that it's gentle enough for everyone. When I worked during fashion weeks, I would find that many girls would do shows back-to-back; this helped calm the skin. It makes the texture of your feel smooth and even without being a true primer."Allan Avendaño, makeup artist who works with Sarah Hyland and Zendaya

“Skincare is such a major part of a great makeup look. Dehydrated skin equals dry, flaky makeup, and this absorbs right into the skin and gives a beautiful glow. Makeup sits on top of it nicely without sliding or getting top shiny."Daniel Chinchilla, makeup artist who works with Ariana Grande

“I used this cream when I lived in Paris. It's quite rich, but works for those who need more hydration to get a glow."Pati Dubroff, makeup artist who works Kate Bosworth and Kirsten Dunst

“This super-hydrating cream can act as a primer and as a makeup remover. It leaves the skin smooth and soft, allowing makeup to glide on seamlessly. The texture is a creamy lotion and just melts into the skin.”Kira Nasrat, makeup artist who works with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jamie Chung
