Biologique Recherche is the epitome of French skincare, this exclusive line is only sold at select luxury spas and Medspas around the world, and features customized skincare and bodycare prescribed by a beauty professional which caters to your specific “skin instant.”
Your skin’s condition changes numerous times in a single day as well as during the course of your lifetime. Everyone’s personal Skin Instant evolves dramatically throughout the course of one day. External factors such as climate, temperature, air-conditioning, pollution, UV exposure, passing of time, as well as internal factors such as stress, sleep, hormones and diet, all affect your skin.
A few of our favorite Biologique Recherche products:
- Lait U
- This non-oily, fresh, universal cleansing milk protects the skin’s natural moisture levels.Gently removes impurities and make-up, protects barrier function and respects the skin’s natural pH which is very important prior Lotion P50. Cleanses without dehydrating and doesn’t leave an oily residue on the skin. Leaves skin perfectly clean and balanced, ready to receive further treatment.
To use, apply to dry hands and dry face. Massage on skin, rinse with water and pat dry. Double cleanse for best results.
Pro tip: use Eau Micellaire Biosensible prior to lait U to remove makeup, including eye make up.
- Lotion P50W
- This non-abrasive exfoliating lotion is the most gentle version of the ‘cult’ favourite Lotion P50 family. With different ratios of exfoliating AHA’s, BHA’s and PHA’s and a slightly higher pH for a softer exfoliating action, Lotion P50W also contains anti-inflammatory, anti-redness and calming actives making it suitable for sensitive skin exfoliation. Lotion P50W is the best version to begin with, for those who are new to the Biologique Recherche methodology.
- This multi-functional lotion helps to:
- Enhance cellular renewal
- Improve the strength and quality of the epidermis
- Build a more resilient and tolerant skin
- Balance the pH of the skin
- Purify and regulate sebum
- Hydrates the top layers of the epidermis
- Smooth textural irregularities
- Formulated for sensitive and reactive skins
How to use:
- It is important to use Lotion P50 after cleansing the skin with a milk cleanser that respects the pH and barrier of the skin. The first week, add a few drops of Lotion P50 to a cotton pad pre-dampened with water then gently pat/press over face, neck and decolletage in ascending movements.
- On subsequent days, a dry cotton pad should be used. If tingling is felt as the skin’s pH is balancing itself, some Biologique Recherche L’Eauxygénante misted over the face will alleviate it.
- Work up to using Lotion P50 directly onto dry cotton pads twice a day. May be used morning and night once your skin has fully adjusted.
- Not recommended for use in conjunction with a foaming cleanser, retinoids or other exfoliating products.
- Serum Placenta
- This smoothing serum purifies and tons the epidermis while restoring epidermal elasticity. Helps to fade and heal post blemish marking. It is recommended for skin with imperfections and/or seborrheic skin.
- How to use - How to Use Serum Placenta. Apply 0.5ml (10 drops) of Serum Placenta onto clean skin over the whole face, neck, and cleavage. Massage in light ascending movements until the product has been completely absorbed.
Pro tip: combine with other biological Quintessential Serums for an extra boost of hydration.
