Face Freaks, I was able to test two samples of #biologiquerecherche's P50 and P50PIGM 400 when I walked into #rescuespa's brick and mortar store to buy P50 1970 to add to my P50W 1970. I wanted to share my very humble thoughts on all of them.
Ingredients will be listed in the comments below for every type they make. To the best of my knowledge, they only sell the 1970 versions (OG) in the USA, so I apologize for those of you who cannot purchase them and wish to!
I originally started with P50W 1970 on the recommendation of an acquaintance. It was a major splurge purchase for my birthday this year and it arrived the day after I purchased (yay for living close to Philadelphia!). I was shocked by the smell. I wasn't prepared for the phenol. It was pretty overwhelming. I knew #queencaroline loved her BR lotions (i.e., acid toners) though so I continued on. I actually got a cold a few days later and couldn't smell, and I don't think that hurt my ability to keep on using it. At the time, I was struggling with using @pixiskintreats#pixiglowtonic and felt that although the glycolic acid wasn't too strong it just made my face feel gross. So I wanted a half day routine substitute to slot in for daytime so I could continue using @nipandfab's #extremenightpads in the pm. My skin immediately changed. It was happier. Less oily. Really more smooth (for me).
It does smell like a chemical factory, but it isn't too harsh in its ability and gets the job done.
