Biologique Recherche P50 1970 aka a “facial in a bottle”
The Biologique Recherche P50 1970 is unlike any other product I have ever used before.
It is an exfoliating toner that works magic on your skin. It exfoliates, hydrates and balances the pH of the skin. Even though the scent is super strong, not necessarily ideal, but it can be overlooked by the magic this product works. It has lactic and salicylic acid, and it has given me the glowiest, smoothest skin of my life
“It boosts your skin’s very slow, very inefficient natural exfoliation process by immediately removing bad stuff from your skin,” says Danuta Mieloch, owner of Rescue Spa (where I purchased this product).
P50 1970 has a blend of AHAs and BHAs to give you that glow. But what makes P50 recognizable and special is the mix of sorrell, myrrh extract, myrtle, and onion. (That is how you get that special smell).
So what is the deal between pH and skin? “Epidermal PH is usually acid reflecting the good status of the natural moisturizing factor, and the acid mantle of the skin (anti-microbial shield and chemical protection screen). However, the epidermis PH may vary considerably during the day, suffering from different artifacts. Epidermal surface PH is difficult to monitor and not always the best parameter for assessing the health of epidermis.” -Rescue Spa
I love the tingle I got when I first used this product because I knew it is working. When the skin tingled it means your skin is unbalanced. When the epidermis is unbalanced, you feel the acidity of the solution, causing the skin-tingling sensation. Once you reach a balance, this sensation will disappear (which did happen for me after using the product regularly).
There are multiple different versions of the p50 1970, so check out the difference between them all here.
Now I am off to look at buying the big boy of this product…. so so worth it.
