Biologique Recherche’s “out-of-the-box” vision of the Skin Instant ®

A person has not only one but several skins.

Our skin’s condition changes numerous times in a single day as well as during the course of our lifetimes. Everyone’s personal Skin Instant® evolves dramatically throughout the course of one day.

Lastly, external factors such as climate, temperature, air-conditioning, tobacco, pollution, as well as internal factors such as stress, hormones, hygiene and age, all affect the skin.

This explains the importance of properly diagnosed Skin Instants®.

Biologique Recherche professionals are trained to analyse all these variables and advise women and men on the treatment that is best suited to their particular Skin Instants®.

Biologique Recherche skin care products boast the following specific characteristics:

  • Very high concentration of active ingredients – over 20% in most products – of botanical, marine and biological extracts.
  • No artificial fragrances to avoid any allergic reactions and to preserve the integrity of the formulas
  • Cold made formulations to preserve the structure of the ingredients
  • Always highest quality of ingredients available

The beloved Lotion P50

Yes, you’ve probably heard of it! Called by New York Magazine “Jesus in a Bottle” or beauty industry “Best Kept Secret” by Intothegloss.com. Grazia Magazine has named it as one of “The Best Beauty Products in The World” and mentioned that “if there was an Oscar for skincare the Biologique Recherche’s Lotion P50 deserves a lifetime achievement award”!

Lotion P50 is loved by many famous faces including Linda Evangelista, the Olsen sisters, Alexander Wang and many many more…

This cult-favourite exfoliating ‘toner’ comes now in 4 main variants: Lotion P50W for thin and/or reactive skin, Lotion P50V [V=vitamins] for devitalised and/or less toned skin, newest Lotion P50 PIGM400 for dull and/or pigmented skin and the original Lotion P50 for combination and/or keratinized skin. We don’t really like to call it a ‘toner’ but it will definitely re-balance the skin’s pH, gently exfoliate, can help you get rid of dark spots, blackheads and even acne, will hydrate and give you the famous BR glow! It has very specific smell of vinegar and it will slightly tingle when applied onto the skin but as Alexander Wang has said in his recent interview for Harper’s Bazaar “…You wake up the next morning and you’re like, ‘Okay, I look amazing’”.

Precautions to be taken when using the lotion P50 range:

  • Lotion P50 is for external use only
  • Do not apply Lotion P50 to irritated skin, or to skin with open wounds and burns.
  • Never use Lotion P50 during a vitamin A treatment or during treatment with products containing Alpha-Hydroxy Acids.
  • Always consult using Lotion P50 after facial surgery with your doctor
  • Do not use Lotion P50 immediately after a skin peel or a laser treatment. Consult with your therapist before using it again.
  • Keep this product away from children and never use it on them
  • While introducing Lotion P50 to your skin (always start with Lotion P50W) dilute it by using damp cotton pad for at least 5 days
  • Avoid contact with eyes. Lotion P50 can be GENTLY applied on the delicate skin around the eyes but only once a week
  • Never rub! – always dab onto the skin

Lotions P50 are active products and can cause a variety of reactions:

  • When the lotion is applied you may experience slight tingling and redness. This reactions reveal an epidermal imbalance. They may occur even if you have been using the product for a long time. To sooth the skin we recommend spraying face with L’Eauxygenante or splashing it with cold water.
  • Your epidermis may react for few days when you first introduce the product. This reactions are perfectly normal and prove that the product is taking action.

Sienna X Spray Tanning

Before/after

Tips and advice to prepare and prolong your sunless tan:

  • Exfoliate the night before paying particular attention to dry areas such as knees and elbows.
  • Remove any unwanted hair 24-48 hours prior to your treatment.
  • Do not moisturise, use perfume or deodorant before your tan
  • Remove contact lenses before the treatment to avoid contamination
  • Bring loose, dark clothing and loose fitting shoes. Tight clothing will cause the tan to rub off.

After the tan:

  • Leave the tan to develop for the required time.
  • Avoid excessive exercise, perspiring or getting wet during development.
  • Long baths or swimming in chlorine water will fade your developed tan quicker.
  • Moisturise daily to enhance your tan and prolong your colour
  • Start to exfoliate 3 days after your tan to encourage even fading.
  • Remember that sunless tan does not protect you in the sun. Use SPF to avoid burning.

We stock wide range of Sienna X products to prepare your skin for the tan or to prolong it – just ask and we will be happy to help.

Sienna X offers wide range of solutions that will develop the tan within 8 hours (5 shades) or just 1hour (High Intensity Tan, medium).
