Lotion P50: Product Focus

Biologique Recherche Lotion P50

With Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham among Biologique Recherche's super fans, it's no wonder the brand doesn't need to advertise. The Paris-based skincare company, with over forty years of experience, is known for its remarkably effective products and bespoke approach to skincare.

Within their vast product range, the Lotion P50, and its subsequent variants, have more than achieved cult status. All Biologique Recherche skin care regimens, whether administered at home or in a cosmetic institute, begin with the “P50 Ritual”, due to their proven efficacy and results. The P50 Lotions are specially formulated to gently exfoliate the skin, regulate excessive sebum secretion, purify, moisturise, regenerate and help maintain the epidermis’ acid pH. Their transformative results have been referred to in media reviews as 'magic' and 'Jesus in a bottle.’

As its name indicates, the Lotions P50 gently renew the skin over 50 days – ‘P’ stands for peeling and ‘50’ stands for 50 days – which represents about two epidermal cycles, for a gentle yet effective exfoliating process.They are applied in the morning and in the evening. These lotions also allow increased penetration and enhanced action of products applied after their use.

There are four different versions of Biologique Recherche’s Lotion P50. Each one provides the same core benefits, but their formulations change slightly to suit each and every skin type. It’s essential you have a skincare consultation with an expert to ascertain the best Biologique Recherche products for your skin, as often we misdiagnose ourselves. With that in mind, below are the P50 variants and our recommended skin suitability:

  • Lotion P50: suitable for oily and/or keratinised skin.
  • Lotion P50W this milder version is suitable for thinner, reactive and sensitive skin types or patients with rosacea.
  • Lotion P50V: suitable for devitalised and/or pigmented skin types.
  • Lotion P50 PIGM400 Ideal for skin types with dull complexions and/or hyperpigmentation.
