MBG Gift Guide: 9 Experiences That’ll Keep On Giving

A DAY OF PAMPERING

Is there anything better than a spa day? New holistic wellness centers that have a unique approach to pampering are popping up daily (in NYC, we’re big fans of Clean Market for infrared saunas, Studio Britta for a facial gua sha with mbg Collective member Britta Plug, and bio-lift facials at Rescue Spa), but if there aren’t any near you, you can still treat your friend to an in-house beauty night. You’ll bring the face masks and oils for spa-quality facials; they just have to show up.

You can’t go wrong with a Rescue Spa gift card to be spent on skincare goods or their fabulous services.

2 Girls Battling Cancer Enjoy Day Out in Philly: Including Manicures at Rescue Spa

It was a much needed day out for two young girls who are battling cancer together. Lexi Cable and Leslie Moore were surprised Sunday by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The two became instant friends while getting treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

The day started at the LAGOS Flagship Store in Center City where they were each given a sterling silver key necklace. From there, they had lunch at a.kitchen, followed by manicures at the Rescue Spa.

BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE  P50 1970 AND LAIT U CLEANSING MILK

This is not terribly exciting, but I also re-stocked on my Biologique Cleansing Milk and my Biologique P50 (the scary-tingly 1970 version that is so potent that one of its main ingredients, phenol, is actually banned in Europe). I went to Rescue Spa for a facial over the Thanksgiving break — they exclusively use Biologique products — and left with the kind of glowing skin that makes you spend upwards of $150 on products, on the spot.

The 10 Best-Selling Biologique Recherche Products At Rescue Spa (& Yes, P50 Is Included)

LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THE BEST-SELLING BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE PRODUCTS AT RESCUE SPA. CONSIDERING THE CULT STATUS OF THESE PRODUCTS, YOU’LL WANT TO GET YOUR HANDS ON THE TOP SELLERS ASAP.

The brand is also known for being a bit elusive – only a handful of spas in the United States carry Biologique Recherche products, and even less sell the brand online. So, where should you turn to snag these French must-haves? New York City’s Rescue Spa, founded by Danuta Mieloch, an esthetician who was actually trained by Biologique Recherche’s own Dr. Yvan Allouche. Thanks to the five-star spa she’s built into one-stop destination for luxe beauty brands, you can shop the line’s most popular products directly on the Rescue Spa site for the best of French-girl beauty at home.

Among the top sellers are exfoliating lotions, cleansers, masks, and serums, but none are likely to be as well-known as the brand’s Lotion P50. The product has developed a glowing reputation for being like a facial in a bottle that often delivers overnight results. Over 700 Rescue Spa reviewers have rated it five stars, saying the product has changed their skin forever.

The potent chemical treatment includes lactic acid and salicylic acid – as well as onion extract, among other natural ingredients – to rid the skin of dead skin cells and reveal a supple, bright complexion. For an even stronger formula, grab the brand’s Lotion P50 Original “1970”, which is the original (super-potent) version.

It’s not just the cult-favorite lotions that are at the top of Rescue Spa’s Biologique Recherche best sellers list, though – included in the popular products are the brand’s well-loved cleansers, too.

The Lait VIP O2 is a gentle face wash that’s great for those with stressed and tired skin. It gets rid of impurities while calming and protecting the complexion with vitamin E, so skin is left less irritated and rehydrated. Likewise, the Lait U cleanser works to wash away makeup, dirt, and bacteria, without stripping skin of moisture.

And for more luxe, nourishing treatments, look to Biologique Recherche’s top-selling masks and creams, like the Masque VIP O2 and the Creme Dermopurifiante, both aimed at balancing and moisturizing skin. The line also includes several anti-aging products with top ratings, like the splurge-worthy Le Grand Serum, which promises radiant, smooth skin.

Whether you’re in need of a new arsenal of effective, luxe skin care products, or you’re furthering your quest toward emulating French beauty, the goods from Biologique Recherche are a solid place to start (as many, many reviewers have attested to). Shop the top ten products from Rescue Spa’s offerings below, and head to the spa’s site for over 100 more products from the sought after French skincare line.

Is Microneedling Safe To Do On Your Own? Experts Weigh In On How To Do It Right

AT HOME VS. PROFESSIONAL MICRONEEDLING.

“The main ways they can become unsafe is if people overdo it with the pressure, and don’t keep the roller clean, which could cause infection,” she said. Diana Yerkes, head esthetician at New York City’s Rescue Spa agrees. “At home microneedling is safe and effective if you are using a correct tool,” she said.

When it comes to at-home microneedling, both agree that at-home treatments help most with product absorption. “Microneedling rollers improve product penetration by close to 80 percent, therefore increasing its efficacy,” Diana Chiticari Yerkes said.
