On using P50 in the mornings: My bathroom looks like Sephora. I love to test new products and am lucky enough to be sent a lot of them. I use a micellar water in the morning. I am a fan of Biologique Recherche P50 lotion. I know a lot of people don’t like it because of phenol. But if you read the studies, it’s not dangerous, plus you can get a version without it anyway. It makes my skin texture look prettier, and it diminishes the appearance of pores.
On sheet masking to slow down: I also love the little eye patches that makes my eyes look brighter. I do have the Valmont ones... and Valmont eye creams. I found out about Valmont from Rescue Spa — it’s my heaven.
Danuta Mieloch invited us into her home to share her Evening Routine. Trust us, you do not want to miss this. She has so many tricks up her sleeves! Double P50? Triple Masking? Microcurrents? It’s all in here…
Walking into Rescue Spa is what I imagine walking into heaven to be like: Bright, white, and walls lined with Biologique Recherche. Located a few blocks behind the Flatiron Building, Rescue Spa is an incredible space that caters to your every skin and massage need, as well as hair, makeup, manis, pedis, and brows—so you can basically walk in feeling like the shell of a human and leave looking like Gigi Hadid at the Met Gala.
I settled in at the waiting area once I arrived and nibbled on bliss balls and mint-infused water whilst I waited for my therapist, concerned over the state of my skin as I had only stepped off a 21-hour flight a few hours prior. I was booked in for the Biologique Recherche “Le Lift Parisienne” Treatment, and oh my goodness—bliss. After lashings of P50 (one of the world’s greatest skincare products, IMHO), LED therapy, and Placenta Serum, my “I just flew around the world and look like shit” skin was baby smooth, hydrated, and free of aeroplane gunk. It wasn’t quite as zen as Cap, and more of a straight-shooter treatment (there were no crystals or sage), but it was phenomenal. The closest thing in Sydney is definitely Mel Grant (if you’re dying for some TLC).

“Biologique Recherche Lotion P50. I used this for the first time one evening at about 6:45 p.m., before heading to a movie and a bar. By the time I stumbled home at 4:50 a.m., the hormonal breakouts around my chin had basically melted, and by the following week, the hyperpigmentation left behind by a previous breakout had similarly disappeared. I use the original 1970 version, which has plenty of lactic acid to make your skin glow along with phenol, an antiseptic which helps prevent the formation of acne. It does burn, but I think it’s worth it. I credit this product with normalizing my skin so that it’s not too oily or dry. Use it at nighttime, on a cotton pad.” Jasmine Sanders x The Cut
