A Clinical and 100% Bespoke Approach To Making Your Skin Glow Healthily And Youthful With Ease
Biologique Recherche has an impressive range of specific skin treatment products for EVERY CONDITION and TO SERVE EVERY SKINCARE BEAUTY WANT for you.
I was once a advocate for some more easily accessible skincare brands, but with extended use, noticed that my skin was actually starting suffer from irritation.
Are you struggling with skin irritation from your existing skincare products that once served you well, but are starting to lose their effectiveness?
Many women, myself included have suffered from increased irritation from the use of certain luxury skincare products. Which on initial use performed admirably but gradually start to lose their desired effects, and cause issues such as bumps, increased oil beads, and redness of skin.
These may be skincare brands from Korea, Japan or Europe where their products contain undesirable chemicals. With increased and prolonged exposure to these chemicals — like parabens and chemical presevatives, many skin types begin to experience issues that begin as mild skin irritation.
I Decided To Give Biologique Recherche A Go And The Results Were...
Really from the get go, the products worked easily into my skin, such as the Award-Winning Lotion P50 and I could not just FEEL the effects but the effects themselves were obvious and evident within DAYS of use. The exfoliation was deep and thorough but it felt like it wasn't stripping my skin bare of its essential lipids and moisture!
I was a complete convert.
I immediately put my old skincare products aside and started to rebuild my skincare regime using a lot of Biologique Recherche's extremely specific products to my needs. (Hey, if you have questions, please drop us a message and we'll advise you as best as we can.)
If you're really wanting to level-up your skincare, I'd advise you to check out our "essentials collection" as your starting point. This way, you won't get lost in the jungle that is Biologique Recherche's impressive array of products.
What I really like about it is that with Biologique Recherche, there is no gender specific nor racial (Asian, Caucasion skins etc) specific products.
In the true spirit of diversity, we believe the skin is a universal organ, facing similar challenges – ageing, pigmentation, elasticity, sensitivity, dullness etc.
I'm gradually using less makeup because I've got a healthier "canvas" to work with!
Partnering With Biologique Recherche — Cult Luxury Skincare Brand
Freia Aesthetics is proud to partner with renowned French, luxury skin care brand Biologique Recherche. "BR", as affectionately referred to all its millions of fans worldwide, has over the span of 40 years, built a reputation for astounding effectiveness, whilst (deliberately) light on marketing.
Today, BR’s treatment protocols and products are represented in more than 70 countries.
What Makes Biologique So Special And Why I'm Completely Smitten
BR products have highly concentrated formulas (to the tune of 50% or more actives), based on intentionally pure, raw ingredients from a wide selection of botanical, marine and biological origin.
Every single product is still manufactured 100% cold – a far cry from today’s manufacture of skincare products where heat is used as the quickest mechanism to formulate products.
Heat destroys the antioxidant, vitamins and biologic value of the actives. Cold formulation methods preserves and respects the integrity and structure of the raw ingredients. It takes 5 days for one bottle of the legendary Lotion P50 to be formulated and packaged – case in point.
No artificial fragrances, parabens, silicones or sulpates are added on, to preserve the integrity of the active ingredients and avoid allergic reactions. This also means that certain products may smell more “biological” than others.
HOW TO USE BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE SKINCARE PRODUCTS — MY ROUTINE
I get asked so many questions about BR products and I just thought I'd create this quick little guide, with videos to show how I get my regular skincare done. And what's best of it all is that with my routine, I don't really need to use that much make up, simply because my make up doesn't need to work so hard! :)
Any good skincare routine begins with a good cleansing ritual. Getting rid of impurities, gunk and debris lays the foundation to layer on all your products. No matter how good products are, you will not gain the optimal benefits of your most expensive skincare if this step is treated lightly or compromised. Always double cleanse. Use Lait U, a gentle cleanser followed by one of our favorites, Lait VIP O2 or twice of Lait VIP O2 to have a clean, clear complexion.
Such a crucial step to always prep skin before putting anything else on! For this, the cornerstone of any Biologique Recherche’s skincare routine starts with any of their beloved Lotion P50. BR's unique acid toners are the fruit of 30 years of research and experience.
These balancing and exfoliating lotions speed up the epidermis' natural exfoliating process and the reconstruction of the epidermal shield. The fortified epidermis can then fulfil its protective functions completely, enhancing the skin's self-regeneration potential. The Lotion P50 ritual is a key stage in all BR skin care protocols. it not only exfoliates, but also purifies, regenerates and balances pH.
All Lotions P50 contain a potent combination of AHA, BHA and PHA exfoliants: lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid, salicylic acid and gluconolactone, to act as a chemical exfoliator. As its name indicates, it gently renews the skin over 50 days - "P" stands for peeling and "50" for 50 days (which represents about two epidermal cycles), for a gentle, effective exfoliating process. This magic potion tones, exfoliates, balances, hydrates, purifies, preps skin for a more intensive treatment. Pick the Lotion P50 that is right for your skin. There are 5 variants - P50,P50T, P50 PIGM400, P50WandP50V available in Singapore.
Medicine for your skin - these potent, concentrated elixirs form a fundamental part of one's skincare regime. They are light in texture (akin to water!), instantly absorbed (with tiny molecular sizes) and deeply penetrated.
Wait 1-2 minutes and follow on with your appropriate Quintessential Serums like Oligo Proteines Marines,Amniotique E,Placenta,Splenodermine on top. Mix or layer up to 3 serums at a time - you can use 0.5ml or 8-10 drops per serum. If used on specific areas, 2-3 drops will be sufficient.
Don't be fooled with our hot and humid weather and think you do not need a moisturiser. Every skin needs one - from the oiliest to the most dehydrated and parched skin. The trick is to choose the right one(s).
I used to believe that we need just one moisturiser - day, night, month long, year long. Whilst a lifetime commitment is a great virtue, I don't think it applies to skincare. I find the best way not to let skin get too comfortable with a moisturiser is to alternate with at least 2-3 variants.
For blemish prone skin, Creme Dermopurifiante has restored the hydration yet keeping sebum production at bay. And of course, moisturise your neck, decolletage and body. There is no use having a young face with everything else visibly ageing. Apply these with a facial massage for a mini facial at home!
This is one of the most game changer of steps in your skincare routine, and life changing too. Made up of larger molecues to seal all the layers of products in - think of it as pushing in your products so they penetrate deeper and better into skin. Be it Le Grand Serum, Complex Royale, Fluide VIP O2, these will leave your skin with an airbrushed and beautiful glow! Because of its potency, 2-3 drops is sufficient for the whole face.
This may be the last step in any skincare regime but its importance ranks the highest. Block up! Layer on at least a 20 cent size sunscreen (and ideally, load it up to a 50 cent coin size) before leaving your doorstep. It may seem like a lot but we often see the ravages of the sun manifest on one's skin only as they age into their 30's or 40's.
Everyone claims to wear sunscreen so if we still get freckles and spots, then it is down to either the efficacy of the formulation or more often than not, the insufficient use of it.
Whether it is a day at the office or on the go or at the beach or the Alps, protect your skin adequately from the harshness of the sun. Like it or not, the sun is the number one enemy for ageing and all its associated problems - skin discoloration, pigmentation, lines, wrinkles etc. In our local Singapore climate, and advised by doctors, a SPF 50 is recommended for adequate protection.
Depending on your skin instant and the climate you are in, choose a skin appropriate sunscreen and wear enough of it. If you are out in the sun exposed for extended period, reapplication is essential for continued protection. One drop of sunscreen may seem "light" and "wearable" and is probably better than nothing but it is also definitely insufficient to combat the harshness of UVA/UVB rays.
