Biologique Recherche Lotion P50
Monday, 11 February 2013
You must be all sick of hearing about my skin woes but one product that really helps when my skin is being temperamental and generally acting the maggot is Biologique Recherche Lotion P50. Briefly mentioned here. I bought this after reading this impressive testimonial on Caroline Hiron’s website. And if Caroline approves, it must be good!
“The cornerstone product in the Biologique Recherche line, P50 is an amazing vitamin-enriched exfoliating potion that gently purifies, hydrates, tones, controls sebum and balances the skin, visibly improving many common skin conditions including whiteheads, blackheads and symptoms of rosacea. P50 prepares skin to receive Treatment Stage products by exfoliating and toning.”
This product is much more medicinal and heavy duty than anything else I have ever used. At first my skin was red and felt dry after using this but once (here comes the science bit) your skin's pH is balanced, the irritation completely goes away and skin is left retexturised, smooth and with less congestion. Definitely the best toner I have used. After trying this, I don’t think I will ever use manual scrubs again, I much prefer a chemical exfoliant. I use this twice a day after cleansing.
It comes in three versions - P50 for oily skin, P50V for normal/combination and P50W for drier, mature skin. I buy this from Sanctum Clinic Dublin. A 150ml bottle will set you back €45, not only the price, the other thing that had me raise an eyebrow is the dubious scent. I can only describe it as vinegary nice! All in the name of beauty eh :)
