There's a reason Biologique Recherche P50 Lotion is considered a cult favorite. This beloved lotion leaves a signature halo glow that's unrivaled by any other products on the market. Clients are always asking me which P50 lotion is best for their skin (P50, P50V, P50W, P50 PIGM400, and P50 1970), so I wanted to quickly explain the differences to help you find the perfect P50 for you.
The Biologique Recherche P50 Lotion is an exfoliator. Which cleanses, balances, and leaves the skin smooth. P50 works by removing dead cells and impurities on the skin, balancing the surface pH of the skin, improving the strength and quality of the skin, and regulating and purifying the sebum secretion from our skin. The regular P50 is recommended for normal skin instants. All versions of the P50 provide these same core benefits, but are slightly varied to better suit different types of skin.
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V:
Lotion P50V contains added antioxidant ingredients such as vitamins and walnuts extract. It is best for more mature and aging skin and skin instants that are more devitalized and less toned. I look for signs of drier, dehydrated skin, when recommending the P50V.
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50W:
This is the gentlest version of the P50 lotions, penetrating the epidermis more slowly. The P50W version of the formula uses arnica, which provides anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Arnica also helps provide a soothing effect on the skin. Overall, this lotion is best for thinner and more reactive skin. I recommend P50W for sensitive skin, that is more prone to redness and rosacea.
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 PIGM400:
This is the latest formulation in the line of P50 lotions. It introduces the brightening agents and antioxidants of the PIGM400 line to the P50 lotion line. It also helps protect and recover radiant and luminous skin with its combination of flavonoids and wasabi extracts. Best for skin instants with dull complexions and hyper pigmented marks.
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970:
This is the original P50 formula which is best for congested and oily skin. Contains minimal amount of Phenol. Lotion P50 1970 contains minimal amount of phenol and lactic acid which increases the production of natural ceramides in the skin. This helps strengthen the skin’s protective barrier. Not recommended while pregnant or breastfeeding
With all the versions covered, I hope this has helped you discover which P50 is best to give you beautiful, glowing skin.
