A Facial With Founder/Skin-Whisperer Danuta Mieloch Is Transformative—her Touch Is Exquisite, And You Emerge Looking Beyond Glowy.

TRAVEL

The duplex spa is enormous and luxurious, with high ceilings, plush couches, and a posh aesthetic that manages to be both modern and comfortable. There’s a hair salon, nail studio, and fourteen treatment rooms where you can get a variety of skin-perfecting therapies like the Oxylight Facial, an over-the-top combination of micro-current, ultrasound, oxygen therapy, and more to lift, tighten, and smooth, and many more LED -, microdermabrasion- , and laser-intensive sessions, plus massages and detox body wraps (you’re slathered in sea mud, which leaves skin insanely silky). A facial with founder/skin-whisperer Danuta Mieloch is transformative—her touch is exquisite, and you emerge looking beyond glowy. We love the BioSeaweed Gel manicure, which uses 5-free polish, LED light to set the pigment (as opposed to UV light), and lasts about a month.

How Beauty Editors Actually Take Care Of Their Skin In Winter

“ANYTHING THAT’S EVEN REMOTELY GOOD ABOUT MY SKIN I OWE PRIMARILY TO P50.”

“Anything that’s even remotely good about my skin I owe primarily to P50. Everything you’ve heard about it is true — yes, it smells bad, and yes, it will fix your texture issues and make your pores look smaller and prevent breakouts and clear up dark spots and so on and so forth. Friends and acquaintances constantly approach me at parties to ask if they really need to try it; my answer is always an emphatic yes, and then they come back and thank me. They thank me, and I didn’t even do anything! It’s the best.” — Krause
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50.

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.

The Strategist Haul: What The Editors Bought In November

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.

Are Pore Strips Helping or Hurting My Face?

THE TRUTH ABOUT PORE STRIPS:

As with most things, the answer you get depends on who you ask. Diana Yerkes, head esthetician at New York City’s Rescue Spa, understands the appeal but identifies how they fail to properly address the skin. “Pore strips are indeed fun, but I don’t find them to be effective at all,” she told mindbodygreen. “They remove the surface gunk and leave the ‘root’ of the issue untouched.”
