I’ve had an interest in this brand for quite awhile now and finally decided to take the plunge and treat myself for my birthday. Who doesn’t love French skincare? I know I do. Biologique Recherche is a spa-grade French skincare line that specializes in high-end personalized care with products that focus on the epidermis to create the ideal surface for youthful, radiant skin. These products have high concentrations of botanical, marine and biological extracts. There are no artificial fragrances so as to preserve the formulaic integrity to minimize or avoid allergic reactions. One key feature of this skincare line is that the original structure of the active ingredients is preserved and most are cold formulations made to be used with cold water.
Lotion P50V is a gentle, balancing, vitamin-rich exfoliator that tones and lightens the skin. It is phenol-free and is recommended for less toned and/or devitalized skin.
How to use: In the first week it is advised to saturate moistened cotton pads (moisten with water) with Lotion P50V and apply to the face, neck, and cleavage. After the first week saturate dry cotton pads with the lotion and apply. The lotion can be applied to the eye area once or twice a week. I got the smallest size (1.7 oz) for $28. The goal of this lotion is to gently exfoliate and balance the epidermis.
I have used up all the samples to date and enjoyed them. I did not have any reactions to any of the products.
Lait VIP O2 – This is referred to as the “antipollution” cleanser eliminates impurities, calms the epidermis, brightens and unifies the complexion. It is ideal for people exposed to harsh, dry climates, pollution and is recommended for frequent travelers, stressed, devitalized skin. I was never one for milk cleansers but I did enjoy this one. It is thicker than the usual milk cleanser which has a watery consistency. I have this on my wishlist to get. The smallest size ($1.7 oz) retails for $22.
Crème Dermopurifiante – This purifying cream brightens and mattifies the skin, leaving it glowing and refreshed. It reduces redness caused by acne and regulates sebum secretion. The full size of this cream retails for $94.
Masque Vivant – For seborrheic (eczema), dull, and/or poorly toned skin. It is not recommended for sensitive skin. It claims to brighten, tone and refresh the complexion. Despite the yeasty smell, I enjoyed using this mask and am thinking of getting the full size. Full size retails for $70.
Crème Contour Yeux et Lèvres Biofixine – This is an anti-wrinkle cream created to treat the skin of the eye and lip. It is ideal for skin affected by the signs of aging. This was okay but I am not pressed to add it to my wishlist. The full size of this cream retails for $203.
I purchased the lotion from Toska European Spa. The links above are not affiliated.
