„It is a miracle in a bottle“ the P50 Lotion from Biologique Recherche. I can say with the utmost confidence that this line, along with properly cleansing my face, has changed my skin around.
WHAT IS IT:
A liquid balancing exfoliator. Designed to strengthen the epidermis, exfoliate skin, regulate excessive sebum secretion, hydrate the skin, maintain the skin’s pH, and treat and prevent ingrown hairs.
WHO IS IT FOR
All skin types – there are three options available in the EU and six available in the US due to the addition of the three originals with added phenol. P50V is for matured skins lacking tone. P50W is for sensitive skins.
Just a quick Google search of this toner (don’t worry, Google will correct your spelling) reveals a cult of enthusiasts: hundreds of articles and comments touting it as a true miracle product, a game changer, a lifesaver, a godsend. The skeptic beauty editor in us was all, „Yeah, OK.“ So imagine my surprise when the morning after I swiped it on with a cotton pad my toneless and dry skin looked downright glow-y. After a week, the tone got better and on the third week I joined the chorus of users singing its praises. But there’s of course no divine intervention happening here—it’s all about the ingredients.Lactic acid and salicylic acid slough off the dead skin cells that clog pores, then niacinamide swoops in to soothe any breakouts you already have. Vinegar is a pretty traditional cleanser, but you might be surprised to see residual makeup splotches on the cotton pad even if you just washed your face. Then there’s the hit of sulfur (to fight future breakouts) and glycerin (which plumps up skin and moisturizes). And it really couldn’t be easier to apply: Just shake a few drops on a cotton pad and wipe it over your just-washed skin.
