Available exclusively at select spas in prestige locations, Biologique Recherche is almost top secret in status. Finding this French range, however, may just be the best thing that ever happens to you. My recent experience with the Masque Visolastine and Complexe Royal Serum confirms that astonishing results trump fancy packaging and floral aromas. If you get a chance to score any of these professional grade formulas, know that while your finances may suffer a tiny bit, your complexion will improve a lot.
A real multi-tasker, the Biologique Recherche Masque Visolastine is bound to impress even the pickiest mask enthusiast. Clay based, the creamy texture feels cooling and comfortable as it dries soft on the skin. Deep cleansing but far from drying, it purifies as it softens leaving the complexion instantly hydrated. Infused with Marin Elastin, it replenishes moisture levels to rejuvenate and plump skin that craves a boost of radiance.
Nourishing and lightening, White Clay brightens and refines while essential Fatty Acids deliver moisture and improve the elasticity of the skin. Ideal for anyone battling dehydration, Masque Visolastine is a great way to refresh the complexion with the added perk of firming and anti-aging benefits. Apply a thin layer and leave it on for 15-20 minutes once or twice a week. The scent isn’t noticeable and it rinses off beautifully making this Biologique Recherche gem a pleasant addition to any existing skincare routine.
Full of botanical extracts, vitamins, and antioxidants, Biologique Recherche offers a variety of finishing serums. Depending on the application technique, they stabilize, boost, or seal any other treatment step, can be used daily or for special occasions, and are a perfect base when applying makeup. Potent, concentrated, and sophisticated, these glam bottles are proof that big things, indeed, come in small packages.
One of these powerhouse anti-agers is the Complexe Royal treatment serum. No doubt, part of the Biologique Recherche prescription plan for ultra glowing skin, this particular formula is suggest for devitalized and mature skin. Obviously perfectly suited to reap its benefits, my skin is loving every drop of this serum. Highlighting the regenerating Royal Jelly and St. John’s Wort, the ingredient deck of Complexe Royal also includes soothing Cucumber, Chamomile, and Silk Extracts. This luxe medley protects and illuminates dull complexion as it delivers long term benefits to fight the first signs of aging. A few drops of this golden hued liquid are plenty to address your entire face and neck.
While seemingly plain, Biologique Recherche is anything but basic. If you’re lucky enough to experience a facial by an aesthetician trained by the brand, make sure to experience Lotion P50. With a cult following among editors, bloggers, and supermodels, the original formula of this acid fueled toner is actually banned in the EU because of the phenol content. Declared safe in the US, this ingredient has a distinct scent you will recognize from Carmex lip balm or cough syrup.
With limited online distribution, recommending where to get Biologique Recherche can be a little bit tricky. Your best best is to Google local spas, which may carry the range. Good luck! You’re gonna need it! xo
