Stick to your regimen. Richie rarely strays from her regimen of Biologique Recherche products — unless it’s to incorporate a homemade face scrub. InStyle revealed that the luxe French brand’s sunscreen, Biologique Recherche Protection U.V. ($132), is also the sun-lover’s go-to SPF.
Moisturizer is the key. Even when she breaks out — yup, it really does happen — the unconventional lady moisturizes pimples instead of drying them out. Style Caster shares that she spot-treats blemishes with hydrating toner, Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V ($65), which cues her body to stop overproducing oil.
” A cult favorite, P50 is a magic potion that does it all. Exfoliates, Hydrates, and Balances the pH of the skin, it’s a prep step before any skincare.” – Danuta Mieloch
We recommend P50 for everyone, even those with super sensitive skin (should use P50V a milder version). P50 “1970” is the most effective and most commonly used formula of P50. If you are still unsure which formula is most suitable for you please contact us so that we may assist you.
What is the connection between PH and good skin?
Epidermal PH is usually acid reflecting the good status of the natural moisturizing factor, and the acid mantle of the skin (anti-microbial shield and chemical protection screen). However, the epidermis PH may vary considerably during the day, suffering from different artifacts. Epidermal surface PH is difficult to monitor and not always the best parameter for assessing the health of epidermis.
What makes the skin tingle when using P50?
When the epidermis is unbalanced, patients feel the acidity of the solution, causing the skin-tingling sensation. Once you reach a balance, this sensation will disappear.
What is the meaning of the name P50?
The P can be used for potion or peeling (the first name of the product was Lotion P1970, then P50, P50V, and P50W were developed).
Sizes: 1.07 oz (Travel) / 5.1 oz. / 8.5 oz.
*We recommend P50 (sans phenol) while pregnant or breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor if you wish to continue using P50 1970 while pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you have any questions, or this is your first time using P50 please feel free to give us a call or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Vogue: Best Toners for Oily Skin and making it through the homestretch of summer.
For a slightly cultier classic, consider Biologique Recherche’s P50 V 1970 Lotion— “It sounds like an undercover agency, and it sort of is! The formula is quite intense, but I love it and since I’ve started using it I don’t ever have to exfoliate my face—the sensation is amazing,” – VOGUE
Miriam Morales of Scripts of flair.com shares her experience with P50…
I’m really excited to be sharing this #beautypost with you guys! You know I’m a product junkie and love testing out new stuff. I’ve slowed down just a bit when it comes to skin care products though because I was (still am) trying to clear up my skin and get it to a healthy place again. Guys, I found something so amazing I just had to tell you all about it! Let me back up a bit…
There one too many occurrences where Biologique Recherche, a French exfoliating toner, was mentioned as a holy grail. Really? I was curious (obviously) and spent an entire week, every day, for HOURS reading reviews. I love reading reviews because they do help get a sense of what to expect with a product. Between Amazon.com and Rescue Spa almost every single review was positive…like, astonishingly positive. Only about 2% were negative. However, they all basically said the same four things: 1. the smell is horrendous, 2. it stings/burns a bit when applied on the skin, 3. it’s pricey, 4. there might be a purging phase. I’m not going to lie, the purging part if what freaked me out the most. I could not deal with more breakouts. But I decided to give it a shot anyway.
I got the P50 without phenol and they didn’t lie! This stuff is expensive. A 1.7oz bottle is $27, with shipping it came to $37. Since I was trying it out I got the smallest bottle to see how I’d like it. Yes, it stings but after awhile you get used to it. Yes, it smells bad, but who cares? You get used to that too. On the first day I only used it at night to see how my skin would react and then use twice daily. Well, well, well, the morning after…man, y’all don’t even know! I noticed a huge difference!. I couldn’t believe that with just one use what it did to my skin. A miracle I tell ya. My skin was noticeably a lot clearer. In under 2 weeks my blemishes and dark spots were clearing up. Those 1.7oz went quick! It was a must for me to continue using this toner so I ordered the next size up, 5.7 at $57 and with tax it came to $67. Told you it’s not cheap but it’s so worth every penny! The right side of my face was bad, like really, really, really, REALLY, bad. It is clear now and the dark spots are fading away. Even the large pores on my forehead that decided to take center stage are getting smaller and smaller. My makeup goes on more smoothly and just looks better period. And, I don’t feel like I need so much! Which is great because summer is right around the corner and I don’t like to wear too much makeup on my face in the blazing heat.
If it did all that in just under a month I can’t wait to see how my skin looks in 3 months. This product completely transformed my skin. I love it. Now that’s not to say that my tea tree oil and other organic natural stuff are dunzo, no, no, no. They’re still good for every now and then use like the days/mornings/evenings when I decide not to use my Biologique Recherche. Because I mean, the stuff is expensive and I’m trying to make it last!
I’ve used the P50 V Lotion after washing my face with the Lait U cleanser twice a day for the past month. Saturating a cotton ball with the yellow-hued exfoliator, I then pressed it into my skin to pick up any leftover dirt and debris. (Yeah, it was pretty filthy.)
While the initial tingling sensation (thanks to active ingredients like onion extract and salicylic acid) caught me off guard, I couldn’t be more excited about the gradual brightening of my face, neck and décolletage. And I got results so fast, I’ve cut back on my usage of P50 V Lotion to just nighttime. Because washing my face before bed is what really matters…
Rating: 4 out of 5. Once you get over the slightly scary tingling sensation, you’re on your way to some seriously radiant skin.
Most of my brides-to be use P50 Lotion by Biologique Recherché. It is one of my go to products to whip pre wedding skin into perfection. But what happens after the wedding when the decision is made to add another little member to the family? For months now I have been raving about Cellcosmet, a botanically based, triple patented skin care line from Switzerland. I am obsessed with their Activator Gel and Toner which makes the skin extremely soft, supple and luminous with absolutely no redness or irritation. It is the perfect transitional product to use while pregnant or while trying to become pregnant (and beyond). I know that the idea of weaning oneself off P50 is traumatic, (I personally have witnessed my clients hyperventilating) however when my future mommies see the results of their Cellcosmet facial all is right again with the world.
Philadelphia has been in the throes of a vicious heat wave and we’re all looking for creative ways to stay hydrated. Our very own Erika Ianoale has a watermelon-mint juice from her Pangaea Earth Foods line that is too good; super hydrating, negligible calories and simply delicious. Kudos to Erika for keeping us juicy.
