WHAT IS THIS MAGIC? ⭐️
SKIN TYPE: Sensitive/Combo/Acne prone PRODUCT: BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lotion P50 V Am I even a skincare addict if I haven’t addressed the iconic Biologique Recherche P50? There’s been so many skincare gurus and beauty blogs touting the claims of how this exfoliating supplement has changed their skin. Search it up: you’ll see what I’m talking about. And after months of using this product consistently, I can say that it’s all true. Honestly, I was skeptical about the claims of P50 and it’s seemingly magical skincare abilities. I opted for products that were dupes and got by just fine with some mild irritation. For those that don’t know, Biologique Recherche offers different versions of the P50 and after some research I decided on the P50V 1970 for dehydrated, sensitive skin. I already get most of my actives from my acne medication so I just wanted something to supplement and improve the efficacy of the products I already have. I also wanted to try a formula with the notorious ingredient phenol and this version has the minimal amount allowed. The product smells like onions when applied on the skin and has a cooling, menthol like sensation on the skin, but they fade quickly. The effects after application, however, are long lasting. After using this a few times a week for about 6 months now, my skin is the clearest it’s ever been. Unlike with other exfoliants, I haven’t had any problems with burning or rashes from excess irritation. Overall, I love this product and already bought another bottle. Feel free to join in on the hype, if you dare.

I’ve been testing out a new product by the 𝐅𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐡 𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞 brand @biologique_recherche_usa 𝐋𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐏𝟓𝟎 𝟏𝟗𝟕𝟎 & I wanted to share my thoughts! 💭 Have you tried @biologique_recherche ?! What products have you tried?! ✨𝐏𝟓𝟎 𝟏𝟗𝟕𝟎; HOLY MOTHER OF ALL THAT IS HOLY! This 𝐅𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐡 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐲 is a chemical exfoliant known for being a little on the pricey side but has been a 𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐭 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 for a very long time (they also make different versions). It is made with ingredients like horseradish, onion extract, vinegar & phenol (& 1970 bottle smells of Chloroseptic spray aka phenol). Their products are also used in Spas all around the world! I don’t know if the smell is horrid or happiness. ✨This 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧-𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 (numbing due to the phenol) is all about the epidermis which is the basis for 𝐟𝐢𝐥𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠, 𝐛𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠, communicating 411 from the outside to the inside of the skin & protecting us. With exfoliating ingredients like 𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐜 𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐝 & 𝐬𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐲𝐥𝐢𝐜 𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐝 to balance your skin’s pH, regulate oil production, brighten dark spots, even skin texture, & help with acne. ✨I will say a 𝐊𝐄𝐘 part in incorporating this into your routine is to soak a cotton pad & 𝐃𝐀𝐁 slowly onto the skin & 𝐍𝐎𝐓 swipe on. In my personal experience my skin did experience tingling & irritation which is 𝐍𝐎𝐑𝐌𝐀𝐋. You can literally 𝐅𝐄𝐄𝐋 it working & always following with a calming serum & moisturizer. 🏷𝐕𝐞𝐫𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐭; so far I’m in love. The smell isn’t great but beauty has its sacrifices sometimes! I will continue to use but I will say my skin is looking less congested & less “shiny.” Deal with the devil has never looked so good. (Price ranges in size $30-120)

Biologique Recherche Lotion P50
The Biologique Recherche P50 toner is a game changer. I especially love this toner because it helps combat acne. P50 also exfoliates, balances your skin’s pH, regulates oil production, brightens dark spots, reduces pore size, and evens out your complexion. Start by using it once every other day for a week, then once a day for a week, and finally every day morning and night. Be warned it smells like trash, but you’ll get used to it overtime. I use the P50 V in the cold winter months, which helps to hydrate dry skin.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
