Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is a cult status product and is one of my favourites. P50 gently exfoliates, balances the pH, balances sebum, hydrates and regenerates your skin. It also helps to improve the efficacy of a booster, masks or serums you apply afterwards. "P" stands for peeling (exfoliation) and "50" stands for two epidermal cycles it takes to help transform your skin!
Regular exfoliation is key to having healthy skin as it removes dead skin cells and enhances our cellular renewal. P50 is a chemical exfoliant and is more gentle on the skin than physical exfoliants and that's why you can use it in your morning and evening routines.
Which P50 should I use?
This formula is enriched with purifying and exfoliating agents, balancing and astringent agents, moisturising and soothing agents. P50 T is appropriate for sensitive, dehydrated and oily skin.
P50 PIGM 400
This formula is enriched with exfoliating, purifying, brightening and antioxidant active ingredients. It's ideal for dull, thin complexions, melasma, sun spots, and post acne marks. It prepares the skin to receive the application of the PIGM 400 range to help unify and lighten the complexion. This version is suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive.
These deep cleansing lotions help to balance your skin. If your skin tends to be on the dry side, it can become more dry, if it's oily, it can become more oily. If you have acne you may have more breakouts. If your skin gets pink after applying, has little red blemishes or you may feel a tingling sensation, this is all normal as your skin is unbalanced. It takes some time for your skin to adjust to P50.
Having a consultation is important when using this product as it is not applied like a regular "toner" and may react differently to products you have used in the past. Always use sunscreen with this product.
