Before Biologique Recherché was my skin saviour, I felt as though I was forever searching for the perfect skincare range and products, I was always so dubious about high street brands, and the ingredients included in their products. Take it from me, I had tried and tested most products on the market, I just never found a product which worked well with my super sensitive skin. After copious amounts of online research, I found that most skincare brands I had been using contained ingredients which were actually drying out my skin and that the perfume only worsened my sensitive skin. Spending time researching the ingredients which were in the products I was using, had really opened my eyes into what the consumer was being sold, and unfortunately it was really disappointing.
After further research, I kept seeing the name Biologique Recherche appearing in forums and blogs, so I had a look into the company and their products. From the research I had done it was clear that the Biologique Recherche had a reputation for effectiveness based on a clinical approach to beauty care using intentionally pure, concentrated and raw ingredients. After much research I was really excited to buy some BR products, starting with their best selling product Lotion P50w.
Lotion P50w claims to be a magic potion that does it all. Exfoliates, Hydrates, and Balances the pH of the skin, and I must say after 6 weeks of using this product, that claim was not a lie.
My skin has completely changed since using this product. It is no longer inflamed, dry or super sensitive, instead it's glowing and healthy looking, all of my family and friends are complimenting me on my skin, which has been a real confidence booster. The overall appearance of my skin has improved, no longer does my skin/acne look inflamed or painful. I really couldn't recommend this product enough.
P50w really has lived up to it's reputation, with many users claiming that it's the best product of all time, I can most definitely say now, that after using the product, that I could most certainly, not live without it.
The Ingredients which wooed me:
How I use Lotion P50W:
- Firstly I use a cleanser to remove make up with a cotton pad.
- Once dry, I then apply a few drops of Lotion P50W to a dry cotton pad.
- I apply this to my face and neck (avoid rubbing the product in), instead I dab the cotton pad over the face and neck.

Continue reading, to see what other BR products I tried out, and what I thought..
Biologique Recherche Serum Complexe Iribiol is a great balancing which is made with Iris and Zinc extracts for customized treatment of skin imperfections. It is recommended for skin imperfections, acne prone skin. I have found that the product works really well with Lotion P50, or if/when I have had a spot breakout. This product literally works miracles overnight, I apply a drop of it onto the spot, and by the morning the spot has almost gone. It is my go-to on the spot product. I would recommend this product if you have acne, or for skin during periods of stress, hormonal upheavals or for areas of congested oily skin.
Biologique Recherche Lait VIP O2 is an "antipollution" cleanser which eliminates impurities, and brightens your complexion. What I really like about this product is that it's not drying and has definitely balanced my distressed skin. I would recommend this product if you suffer from distressed, dry and unbalanced skin. It has definitely made my skin feel smoother too, which is a bonus.
I was fortunate enough to try out some samples from BR. I have tried and tested them all, of course they all are great for different skin issues and work brilliantly, however out of the above products, there was one product which really stood out from the rest. That product was called Masque Vivant.
Masque Vivant is a balancing mask, it contains high concentrations of Yeast, Cucumber, and Witch Hazel extracts, which are renowned for their skin purifying properties, there really is no product like it, It has really has revitalized my skin, which now looks brighter and more healthier. I have to admit, it doesn't smell great, however please don't let this deter you from the mask, as it's definitely worth the 10-20 minutes wait, as the results are incredible.
I use this after using my Lotion P50w, leaving it on for 10-20 minutes, washing it off and using a hydrating serum afterwards.
I have been using this mask twice a week and have already seen great results in my skin.
All in all, I have definitely seen a fantastic difference in my skin since using BR. It's softer, brighter and less spotty. I feel more confident wearing small amounts of make up, as I don't feel as thought my skin looks inflamed or dry. I couldn't recommend these products enough, its really important to invest in your skin, and these products are defiantly a great investment into getting the best out of your skin.
