The hype is real!
Creme Masque Vernix is now back in stock and available to ship today!
The Biologique Recherche Creme Masque Vernix is inspired by the protective layer on a baby’s delicate skin at birth. This dual-purpose face cream and mask mimics the original composition of vernix thanks to a selection of active ingredients rich in lipids, proteins, and antioxidant peptides. This revitalizing, repairing, protective, moisturizing cream facial treatment is ideal to aid and repair skin damage for deficient and/or stressed skin. It revitalizes, repairs, and protects the epidermis for radiant glowing skin.
What is Vernix?
Vernix is a natural substance that protects the skin and boosts the skin's metabolism. It is composed of antioxidant molecules, Vitamin E, water, lipids, and proteins. Vernix is a cream face mask that helps recondition the epidermis by offering it a “second birth.” Inspired by the first epidermal protection at birth, the formulation of this cream face mask virtually reproduces the original composition of the vernix, thanks to a selection of active ingredients rich in lipids, proteins, and antioxidant peptides. It's designed to be a revitalizing, repairing, and protective treatment for the delicate skin of the face, ideal for deficient and/or stressed Skin Instants©.
Regular use will preserve and optimize skin's hydration, smooth dehydration wrinkles, soften skin, and restore and strengthen the skin's protective barrier. After 4 weeks of use in clinical trials, the skin feels 14 percent softer.
How to use Biologique Recherche Creme Masque Vernix
To use as a face cream apply a thin layer of Biologique Recherche Crème Masque Vernix over the entire face in the morning and/or the evening after using the recommended cleansing milk and Lotion P50. For more intensive results you can also use this cream as a face mask. To get a mask effect, apply a thick layer after cleansing. Leave on your face for about 10 minutes, then delicately remove any excess with a damp cotton pad. Follow with your favorite Biologique Recherche quintessential serums and finishing serums for best results

Biologique Recherche VIP 02 "Anti-Pollution" Skincare Collection. Harsh climates and urban city environments with heavy pollution can wreak havoc on your skin. City pollution can have severe consequences for your skin’s overall health and condition. The daily attack of these environmental elements will disturb the skin’s balance and, ultimately, its overall appearance. It is critical to understand and address these issues to maintain your best skin ever.
Although you may have no choice in the environmental effects and pollution where you live and work, there is hope to help protect your skin from premature aging. The cumulative effects of a properly prescribed skincare protectant program can make all the difference in the world. Acne, pre-mature aging, and dehydration are all common symptoms of exposure to city pollution on a daily basis. The results typically present themselves with redness, a dull complexion, dry skin, eczema, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. The Biologique Recherche VIP 02 Anti-Pollution Skincare System was specifically formulated to address all of these concerns. This Biologique skin care and hair care system works on three levels to purify, detoxify, and protect the skin.
The first step is to purify the skin and cleanse away the polluting particles. The objective here is to eliminate polluting particles, which are often smaller than your pore size, making it easier for them to get trapped and affect your skin. Step one in the Biologique skin care system is a deep cleanse to eliminate any accumulation of pollutants, dirt, debris, oils, and dead skin cells on the epidermis. The recommended cleanser for this step is the Biologique Recherche Lait VIP 02 Face Cleanser. The same attention should be given to your hair and scalp as most of these same issues apply. The Shampoo Traitant VIP 02 is an excellent choice to gently cleanse the hair follicle and purify the scalp. This shampoo works on the same concept as the VIP 02 face cleanser. Purifying and balancing the scalp is one of the most important factors in growing healthy, shiny hair. This should not be forgotten or ignored.
The second step in this anti-pollution system is to detoxify the skin by neutralizing the pollution. The objective is to capture the polluting agents in the skin and neutralize them to limit their access to the skin and the long-term harmful effects they can have on the skin. The detoxifying active botanical ingredients help to repair the skin, eliminate cell waste, and replenish vital proteins and lipids back to the skin. After cleansing the skin, you can begin the detoxification phase with a masque followed by a face and eye cream. The Biologique Recherche Masque VIP 02 soothes and revitalizes stressed skin by replenishing moisture and stimulating cell growth. Follow with the Crème VIP 02 Face Cream and the Contour Des Yeux VIP 02 Eye Cream. Both will brighten dull skin complexions, tone, moisturize, and naturally protect the skin’s epidermis against harsh environmental agents.
The third and final step with the system is to protect the skin with an anti-pollution shield. The objective is to limit polluting sediments on the skin’s surface and to form a protective barrier for the skin to block polluting agents' penetration of the epidermis. Use and application of The Biologique Recherche Fluid VIP 02 Finishing Serum after applying your face and eye cream will stimulate the epidermis, replenish moisture, and trap oxygen at the surface of the skin to protect skin throughout the day. The result is a brighter complexion, smoother skin, and a visibly more radiant glow.

Firm, tone and slim down down before your big day with the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 "Nouveau Seaweed Wrap" at Paul Labrecque. As seen in New York Magazine's Wedding Spring/Summer 2018 Edition "checklist" this is a must have body treatment for the bride to be looking to show off her glowing skin.
The cult French toner Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is now being offered as a body treatment: The Lotion P 50 Slimming Algae Body Wrap at Paul Labrecque Salon & Skincare Spa. It begins with a P50 application and full body scrub followed by a lymphatic massage of the abdomen (this technique, also known as lymphatic drainage, is designed to increase the flow of the lymphatic system and flush out stagnant fluid). Finally, a foamy whip of algae paste, said to release toxins, is slathered on before you are folded into a hot blanket. The result is less bloating smoother and more even skin tone. The P50 Body Wrap has gained a following among Brides-To-Be. "When I got out, I felt lighter", says future bride Rica Silverio. "My dress is backless, and the exfoliation made my skin smoother."

Great hair is at the top of every woman's hit list, and something seemingly impossible to achieve. We invest copious amounts of time and money into what has become one's ultimate accessory — and still your hair is too thick, too thin, too oily, too dry, too dull, too bright, too light right now, really dark right now, it won't grow fast enough, it grows too fast to maintain your blunt bob, blowdrying takes too long but you desperately need it, you'd be a frizzy mess without your flat iron but it's slowly frying every precious strand... should you just cut everything off? Probably.
Amidst these list of woes, there's one integral part of your hair care that goes almost entirely ignored. If you're not battling dandruff and/or a deep shampoo fanatic, your scalp is generally forgotten. Crucial error. For anyone inspired by 2006 instant classic Aquamarine, and has done a deep dive into growing long hair, fast, they'll know the scalp is exactly where you should be focusing much of your attention. While it's all very well to do a weekly deep condition and go light on the heat (these are very good things), hair stylist and manager of Manhattan's ,Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa Frederic Moine, says it's time to shift our focus — and the salon is leading the charge with hair & scalp therapy treatments.
The chic Upper East Side location, Moine says, is perhaps the only salon in New York that offers new technology created by Parisian brand, Biologique Recherche, which focuses on revitalizing the scalp (subsequently promoting hair growth and keeping your hairstyle fresher, longer). The key to unlocking your best hair is in the stimulus and sebum (hair's protecting agent) control of the scalp. Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 Capillaire hair and scalp treatment is actually the famous beauty company's famous skin treatment adapted for hair and includes highly activating/purifying ingredients such as horseradish, lemon, sage, myrrh and burdock extracts and witch hazel. Recommended for women with oilier hair — that is, the entirety of New York women contending with the subway and erratic weather conditions on the daily — Paul Labrecque offers a luxurious 60-minute treatment and blowout, which will actually leave your hair more manageable and glossy for weeks to come.
Six different products are used throughout the process, and trust me, this is pampering at its peak. The hair is wet, while an initial lotion that balances the scalp's pH is applied to every part of the scalp; the hair is quite literally divided section by section and the Lotion P50 Capillaire is pressed into each part of the skin. Moine says it's rare that the scalp ever receives this kind of affection and it works wonders in restoring the scalp. Next is the Biologique Recherche Oxygenating Shampoo that protects fragile hair, followed by a balm that restores shine, before an anti-aging mask is applied to the hair and activated under a heat lamp for 20 minutes; this is followed by a deep conditioner, but let's not forget the generous scalp massage that also comes with the treatment. After the hair is blown out a final serum is applied. For 6-8 weeks, your hair will be infinitely easier to style and will look and actually be healthier, with each fiber more resistant to damage and improved texture and shine.
If you repeat the treatment regularly, as you would with a trim, your hair is also likely to grow exponentially faster and stronger. Sweet dreams are made of these. Of course, well the full treatment is rare and the price of an expensive haircut (the two-hour process will set you back $150), you can, in fact buy each Biologique Recherche product and perform the regime on yourself, once every few weeks, at your leisure. Of course, if even that is too much of a commitment for you, than take Frederic Moine's advice and give your scalp a little more loving — take time to really massage when you shampoo, or give yourself head massages regularly, your hair will thank you for it.
Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa is located at 171 E 65th Street, New York, NY 10065. Call 212-988-7186 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment.
Biologique Recherche has done it again! With this collection of products in your toolkit, your skin will be ready for anything this summer throws your way. Click on the products in the newsletter below, or find the links in the following text. Most importantly, treat yourself to healthy and radiant skin all summer long!
Healthy skin starts with exfoliation so the new cells emerge on the surface. Lotion P50 removes dead cells and impurities. It also reconditions skin with active ingredients such as A-H-A, P-H-A & BH-A, Cider Vinegar and more. Snag Lotion P50 in a travel size convenient for summer vacations, or go for the 8.4 oz bottle to keep at home.
Skin protection is essential when the summer sun rays beat down harsher than other times of the year. Protection U.V. is SPF 25, which gives you a healthy balance between tanning and skin protection. This light, 100 percent natural formula protects your skin from UVA, UVB, and infrared rays.
If you accidentally let your tan get a little too red and are now suffering from a burn, you’ll love the soothing and repairing effects of Serum Biosensible. It restructures and reinforces the epidermis, reduces sensitivity, and provides a comforting sensation.
Like the Serum Biosensible, Reparation U.V. is good to have around after a day of sunbathing. It calms irritation, fights free radicals and glycation, and prevents peeling.
The sun is known to dry out skin quickly, so a few good moisturizing products will help keep your skin soft and fresh. Creme Hydravit’s has a long-lasting hydrating effect that protects against increased humidity, dehydration, and intense UV radiation.
This white clay mask helps combat dehydrated skin with long-lasting moisturizing action thanks to the active hydrating and lipid-replenishing active ingredients. Masque Visolastine is like a quick 15-minute facial that leaves skin comfortable all day.
There’s more to protecting your eyes this summer than wearing your favorite pair of Ray-Bans. Creme Contour des Yeux Biosensible soothes the sensitive skin that surrounds eyes.
If you’ve ever had a sunburn on your lips, you know it can be one of the most painful places to damage your skin. That’s why Biokiss protects and repairs your lips while it moisturizes using plant-based polyglycerides.
Have you been to Disney World on a hot summer day and felt the instantly refreshing mist from the sprayers in the line? You can feel refreshed like that without traveling to Florida with L’Eauxygénante, a mist that stimulates the epidermis and gives an instant feeling of freshness! It is a moisturizing, antioxidant, and oxygenating mist that protects and refreshes.
Both Lotion P50 Corps and Gommage P50 Corps are effective exfoliating products that can be used simultaneously. Lotion P50 Corps gets rid of dead skin cells as it balances the pH of your skin to help encourage healthy rejuvenating skin. Gommage P50 Corps is a double-exfoliating product that can be used weekly for an extra bit of love to clear your skin during the summer.
Now that you’ve properly exfoliated and moisturized, it’s time to target problem areas. These two products help prevent and reduce stretch marks. Crème R-Stria prevents and alleviates red stretch marks by decreasing inflammation, while Crème B-Stria reduces white stretch marks and stimulates skin repair.
Get rid of pesky cellulite by treating the cause and the visible aspects with Lipogen AC. The active ingredients in this spray drains water and toxins while it increases blood circulation. Together, these get rid of “the orange peel” effect from cellulite and pits.
Caffeine is a substance known to help reduce cellulite. Crème Anti-C is a caffeine-rich product that can be used as often as twice a day. Apply it directly to the areas with cellulite and watch the skin firm and tighten before your eyes.
Infuse your body with a smart blend of essential oils to help soothe tired and heavy legs. Huile Jambes Lourdes achieves this relaxing effect with lemon, cypress, sage, mint, and rosemary oils.
If the Huile Jambes Lourdes doesn’t seem to work for you, try Crème Défatigante to help your legs feel fresh and light instantly. The active ingredients in this cream are an energizing treatment that also prevents tired legs.
If you want one product that can change your summer, you need Huile Bénéfique. This spray can be used on your face, body, and in your hair. It is an all-in-one nourishing spray made with essential oils that enhance your tan, make your skin softer, and leave your hair glossy. It can be used daily.
For best results, it’s recommended to use the BR Body Massage Glove with all body products to optimize results. It’s like visiting the spa every time you take a shower - what a great way to spend the summer.
Summer is right around the corner and that means hours of soaking up the rays, lounging by the pool, and working on your beach bod.
