My review on the new Biologique Recherche Lotion P50

bought the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 
on my last trip to Paris. 

Lotion P50T is a new version of Lotion P50 that has a slightly higher pH level. 

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids: Specifically, lactic acid (derived from milk sugars) and citric acid (from lemons and oranges). The activity level of AHAs can vary, depending on how concentrated they are and the pH of the formula. In Biologique Recherche products, the molecules have a high acid ratio and low salt—which means they are both exfoliating and hydrating.
  • Cider vinegar: Created from fermented apples, cider vinegar contains citric and malic acids. Thanks to its high tannin content, it also has purifying and astringent properties.
  • Beta-hydroxy acid: Salicylic acid is naturally synthesized by certain plants, such as willow, and has an anti-inflammatory effect. Compared to AHAs, it penetrates the pores more easily in order to dissolve dead cells that may be causing obstructions. 
  • Poly-hydroxy acid: Gluconolactone is present in honey and fruit juices. It's a less penetrative exfoliant than AHAs, but also less irritating.
  • Niacinamide: My favourite ingredient for fading skin pigmentation also has an anti-inflammatory effect that can help with acne. 
  • Horseradish, burdock and capsicum extracts: The horseradish has antibacterial properties and can help regulate sebum production. Capsicum is purifying and antiseptic, while burdock is moisturizing, healing and calming. Burdock also has the unique ability to balance combination skin, hydrating dry zones while purifying and regulating oily areas.
  • Magnesium chloride: It has healing, antiseptic and sebum-regulating qualities that can hep with acne and eczema.
  • Arnica extract: It has a soothing, protective and anti-inflammatory action.
  • Natural moisturizing factors: These are ingredients, such as urea, lactates and sugars, that mimic the substances found in healthy skin.

Ingredients (Lotion P50T): Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Sodium Gluconate, Niacinamide, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Magnesium Chloride, Vinegar (Acetum), Citric Acid, Cochlearia Armoracia (Horseradish) Root Extract, Arctium Lappa Root Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Capsicum Frutescens Fruit Extract, Serine, Urea, Allantoin, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Salicylate, Sodium Benzoate, TEA-Lactate, Sorbitol.

Finally the Phenol was removed in the new lotion!

The phenol-free version of the original formula, targeted at normal to oily, thick skin. This info's not from the brand, but I understand it has a concentration of 12.85 percent AHA.

I followed this direction on how to use:

Step 1: If you're new to acids, start by dampening a cotton pad with a bit of water.  The water will dilute the acid until you become accustomed to it. After the first week, you can use Lotion P50T on dry cotton pads.
Step 2: After washing your face, apply a few drops of Lotion P50T to the pad, and swipe it across your face, neck and décollatage. 
Step 3: If you find it too strong, you can spray your skin with a face mist after a few moments, to neutralize the acid. Otherwise, simply leave it on your skin and continue with the rest of your regimen.
Do this twice a day, on bare skin after cleansing (and before moisturizing). 
And don't forget to use sun protection, as AHAs increase sun sensitivity.
The first thing I noticed is that Lotion P50T feels less "tingly" on the skin. Even though it has the same exfoliating ingredients, it's unfortunately not as strong.
My skin was red for an hour following application and got really dry. 
I like the ingredient but not a fan of UREA. 
Some of the benefits you can expect (and that I have experienced myself):
  • Brighter, more even skin tone
  • Fewer acne breakouts
  • Less oil production
  • Gradual reduction in pore size
  • Fading of pigmentation
  • Softened appearance of fine lines

Derived from milk, fruit, vegetables and other plants, Lactic Acid is one of the most popular Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) found in anti-acne and anti-aging products and chemicals peels. 
Like other AHAs, Lactic Acid has been known to help reduce acne breakouts and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. 
What differentiates it from others, however, is its reputation. Noticeably gentler than Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid is effective in acne-pronedry and mature skin types without irritating the skin (some formulations are even gentle enough for rosacea).
It’s hardly a recent discovery though; goat’s milk was used as an ancient lactic acid spa treatment, and legend has it that Cleopatra soaked in milk baths sprinkled in with rose petals.

What does it do to your skin:

  • Hydrates complexion;
  • Increases natural barrier lipids in skin’s outer layers to help prevent skin’s natural oils and water from escaping;
  • Helps stimulate collagen production;
  • Encourages outermost layer to shed quicker to reveal healthier, newer skin;
  • Helps promote cell turnover;
  • Softens the skin.

Why it is so good"

It exfoliates without irritating the skin the way a traditional granular scrub would. It’s an anti-acne and anti-aging ingredient all in one, keeping skin in check and leaving it baby smooth to the touch.
Lactic Acid is the perfect stepping stone from which you can work your way up to a stronger AHA like Glycolic Acid; it’s also a great way to help prepare your skin for a chemical peel.

What You Should Know

Like all AHAs, Lactic Acid increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. (AHAs work to slough off the outermost layer of skin, leaving this new layer vulnerable to UV rays.) Be sure to take extra care by using a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day.
I'm Fabulous Cosmetics has this amazing all natural skin peel with all natural ingredients and lactic acid in it. The Bio Gorgeous Peel smell so wonderful, very fruity and feels amazing on your skin. It is so easy to apply because there is no mixing and you can use it at home when your skin needs it the most. Anis call it her rescue peel. "you can use it before an event to refresh your skin before makeup for a glowing, super smooth look".

  • Help anti-aging serum and cream actives penetrate deeper and faster into your skin. 
  • Very safe to use and excellent for Acne. 
  • Great also if you are a first-time peel user. 

Enzymes like alpha hydroxy acids help the skin exfoliated.  

AHA’s loosen the top layer of dead cells a primarily composed of keratin, while on the other hand enzymes dissolve the keratinized layer. 

Papaya and pineapple are great sources of proteolytic (protein dissolving) plant enzymes. This extract is formulated to enhance the enzyme properties of the separate extracts to create the perfect exfoliating and renewing blend.

The protein-dissolving enzyme papain can only be found in papayas. Papain is at its highest level just before the papaya ripens, while it is still green. 

The powerful papain enzyme dissolves dead and damaged skin cells. Papaya is great for blemishes, mature skin, dandruff, large pores, and sunspots. 

Some research shows that the enzyme papain is useful as an exfoliant where excess keloids have formed during wound healing. 

Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain and alpha hydroxy acids (malic acid; citric acid; tartaric acid; glycolic acid).

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz).

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz). The result of Dermaplaning is radiant soft skin over which makeup glides on smoothly. You'll find your makeup looking far less caked and more natural looking.

  • Removes dead skin and peach fuzz
  • Softens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Helps serums and peels penetrate more effectively!

  • Our dermaplaning tool removes dead skin and peach fuzz
  • Creates a smoother, more even complexion
  • Softens fine lines
  • Makeup applies more smoothly
  • Removes dead skin and debris
  • Increases product penetration
Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well!

It's the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments, like TCA Multi Acid Face Peel, Serums, and MicroRoller.


CLEANSE: Cleanse and dry skin thoroughly.

RESURFACE: Beginning at the top of the cheekbone near the hairline, hold your skin taut and gently glide the dermaplaning tool towards the nose using short strokes. Continue until you have resurfaced the entire cheek and jaw. Repeat light strokes on the chin, above the lips, and on the forehead. Do not use on eyelids, eyebrows, hairlines, sides of nose, or lips. DO NOT go to any facial area more than once.
