I love this product. I am 53 and have been using this product for 10 years, My skin has not aged. It has smoothed out my skin making my deep acne less noticeable. It has taken the roughness from my skin. It has also made my pores less noticeable. I use the entire line. I use the P50, MC110, VIPserum,demopurifiant, and the biofixine cream. Every time I stop using these products my skin returns to its poor condition. I will never be without these products. My skin is better now than it was in my 30's. I also enjoy the scent of the system. Every product smells natural . The systen does not hide the natural scent of it's products. I have not broken out in years and I do not have any blackheads. My skin glows. At first my skin did purge but I kept with it and am I glad I did.

not for sensitive skin!! i have combo skin and i found that it was extremely harsh. my face tingles and stings afterwards, which was expected (after reading reviews), but no real progess in my skin! a pricey mistake. . .

This product clears the skin really well. I love the way it tingles! When I apply it with a damp cotton pad on a clean face, I can see that it takes everything out of my pores. They instantly become smaller and blackheads are gone!

The best toner I ever have used. I always had my skin very altered and oily. Recommended by my beautician I started to use P50 every night, once I got used to its particular smell and after feeling itchy the forst days, my skin has never been better. I only use a few drops in a cotton pad every night, so it last for several months.
Perfect for all kind of skins, specially those altered with problems.

This si my second bottle. SO I must have liked it. I don't know about it anymore. It is very harsh. I find that I only use it once in a while. I think that your money would be better spent on products that have anti-aging properties.

To me this is not worth the money. I don't see great results in fact I have to keep this far away from my eyes and lips. It burns! It causes red dry patches! And the smell is awful. I would rather save my money and use some great smelling Burt's Bees. I can't wait to finish this bottle. I can't throw it out b/c it was so darn expensive. I do see results but its not phenominal. Two thumbs down for P-50.

This is my first review for great products that work, but smell horrible, cost a fortune and take up a lot of time to put on (if you use the masque. I would never have found these products but for a tip with a friend with amazing, crystal clear olive skin. I have used b.r. products for five weeks, as recommended by my aesthetician, Aida Bicaj, and they are the only things that have reduced the bumpiness and/or appearance of milia on my eyelids and under eye area; adult acne (from age thirty to present time) and discoloration and broken capillaries on my left cheek; and soothed and smoothed out on my combination confused medium-olive complexion (Filipino skin). For reference, for about nine years, I have tried and failed with dermatologist prescribed avita, tretinoin, Retin A/Retin A micro, hydroquinone; luxury lines like obagi and Guerlain Creme Orchidee; drugstore brands like Queen Helene; makeupalley suggestions like aspirin mask and health food items like honey mask, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, almond oil. The oils ended up breaking out my skin but not really curing the parched spots (caused by retin A etc that I've had to resort to prescription cortisone cream and Desown to calm it down). I would recommend going to a good aesthetician to find out which b.r. products are right for you, but the stars of the line are Lotion P50; finishing serum VIP 02 and MAsque Vivant. I use a quarter and a nickel sized dollop of LAit VIP O2 (about $75 for 8.5 oz, lasting about three-4 months) which sinks right into my skin and is my personal favorite product (no need to wipe off excess as per directions); then Lotion P50 or P50V (same price as above) which my aesthetician says not to rinse off/spray off (these directions are for people who can't stand the smell.Then, Mask Vivant (optimally once a day or at least twice a week; I've seen prices vary from 80-150 for 5.2 oz; best price at Paul Labrecque online) which is fiercely, stomach churningly pungent (swab the inside of your nose with tea tree oil diluted with water or vick vapor rub, breathe out through your mouth and don't do it when a loved one or anyone else is home). Beware as Mask is more pungent after you wipe it off with a damp cotton pad. Then spread 2-4 drops of Oligo Proteines Marines serum (I think $30 on Paul Labrecque) over face and neck; then between a nickel and a quarter sized dollop of creme dermopurifiante (my next favorite for $75 for 1.7 oz; in the winter I think it goes quickly like in about 6 weeks; I think it is also making my eyebrows grow); and then finally VIP02 finishing serum ($150-180 for 1.02 oz in an irritating opaque blue container that you cannot see inside). Because of the damage wrought by overheated NY apartment living, my aesthetician also prescribed Creme VIP 02 which unlike the others doesn't smell and feels like crushed pearls. By the way, there is no greasy afterfeel; your skin just feels soft and moist, like it is breathing. So long as I can stand the price, I will continue to use these products. By the way, my dermatologist actually said my skin looked healthier. Sorry for the long review; I hope this helps anyone thinking of using b.r.

I first tried this product last year after the Allure article. At the time, my acne was pretty well controlled with other products, but after the reading the Allure review, I HAD to give it a try. The P50 lotion made my skin oily and caused bad breakouts for weeks. I stopped using it and left it untouched in my medicine cabinet. However, I was running low on a different product a few months ago and decided to revisit the P50. Afterall, I had already shelled out the money for it. This time, I was super careful. I used the damp cotton swab and rinsed, as directed. I also started out using once per day. I didn't notice any negative effects so I increased to 2X per day. I have been very pleased with the product this time around. My skin is smooth and my acne is controlled. I don't have the terrible breakouts and oiliness that I experienced previously, and I think it's because this time, I use the product as directed. Before, I didn't rinse, and thought if I a few drops worked, a few more should be even better. Not the case with this! I don't think there is any single product that works for every person, but the second time with the P50 lotion was the charm for me.

I've only been using this for a week, and I'm still "purging", but I already see a huge difference in clearing up acne that was healing as well as total tone. Hopefully the chicken-skin texture will end by the end of the week, it's cleared up on my cheeks and chin, but not forehead!
Since people say this is difficult to find, I want to let everyone know that Rescue Rittenhouse Spa in Philadelphia always has it in stock. I don't know if they will ship it outside Pennsylvania, but if you're in town then head over. I bought it after the owner (who has flawless skin) reccomended it.

The classic P50 toner is much better that the other versions P50V or P50W, which I have used for a long time in belief that the P50 was only for "stronger, thicker skin", I was advised to since I have red hair, fair skin, which is very fine, sensitive and combo. Well, the other versions are nowhere near the quality and results of the P50, in fact the P50W made me oily beyond control for months. So I decided to give Biologique Recherche one last chance (seeing Sophia Coppola uses it and has a lovely complexion) and I bought the classic P50 toner. It works really well and the results are much better skin. A huge difference with the other lotions. I am using it twice a day, just a few drops on half a disc of cotton pad and do not rinse it at all. At night I follow up with the Creme Dermopurifiante, which is a moisturiser supposed to take care of redness and clear out spots too. I think the price is OK because it lasts very long. If the results last, I will repurchase.
