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.

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.

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.

Biologique Recherche is one of those product lines you want to have in your skincare toolkit, especially when winter hits. Here at Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa in NYC, we are all-too-familiar with the cold winter weather that dries up skin and makes looking and feeling healthy and beautiful a challenge. The winter weather puts skin through a bootcamp of sorts, pushing it to its limits to see just how far it can go without breaking. It makes skin dry, cold, flaky, weak, damaged, and achey. The good news is Biologique Recherche contains products to help you combat these nasty winter symptoms, including the always-trusted Lotion P50. Follow our guide to see which products can help you through these chilly winter months, leaving your skin fresh and revitalized like the first day of summer!
This guide certainly helps make winter seem a little brighter! Now, let’s learn a bit more about the featured products in our Winter Skincare Toolkit.
With the incredible advancements in modern science and technology, people are able to finely create facial creams, toners, lotions, and other products to specifically target and help problem areas or unique aspects of different skin types. Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is one such product that isn’t made for a one-type-fits-all, which is a gratifying benefit of using this product line - and one that makes it a favorite of the Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa. Common skin types are dry, oily, sensitive, normal, or a combination. Many people have somewhat of a combination, but you can use these common characteristics to narrow down what type of skin you get to call your own.
Not only is it a good thing to keep in the back of your mind, but knowing your skin type can help you have a better skin care experience. Since people are able to tailor products for different types, you can use this information to your health and wellness advantage.
A person’s skin may be dry because the pores are nearly invisible. Pores are what help our skin breathe and stay healthy. Other signs of dry skin include a rough and tough exterior, redness, stiff and less elastic, and visible lines. Moreover, dry skin easily cracks and peels. It is most likely itchy a lot of the time, and it can easily become irritated or inflamed. Dry skin is common on hands, arms, and legs, but it is also frequent on the face.
In contrast to dry skin, oily skin is commonly caused because of enlarged pores. The skin exerts so much oil that it feels extremely moist and can look shiny. Levels of oil in the skin can change depending on the time of year and where you live. Oily skin, while commonly shiny, can also have a dull or thick complexion. Frequent blackheads, blemishes, and pimples are also signs of oily skin. Oily skin isn’t usually a lasting skin type; oily skin can arise because of stress, puberty, heat, or other hormonal imbalances.
Sometimes sensitive skin looks like dry skin because of the redness or dryness, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is dry. Sensitive skin is typically only sensitive to certain products or treatments, and many companies these days make products that aren’t as harsh. If your skin itches, burns, turns red, or gets dry after using a product or doing a certain treatment, you likely have sensitive skin. Pay attention to what may trigger these reactions to try and avoid the discomfort in the future.
How boring it is to have normal skin! Only joking. In general, normal skin is our foundation for determining the other types. Normal pores are barely visible and there are few blemishes. Normal skin seems to glow all day every day and doesn’t need too much additional product or moisturizer.
Do you feel like you don’t fit into one of these groups exactly but rather take bits and pieces from more than one? You’re not alone. This is known as a combination skin type, and it is most likely a combination between dry or normal and oily in some areas. The T-zone is a common oily area. The T-zone is the forehead, nose, and chin. If you frequently have blemishes pop up on your chin, nose, or forehead, but nowhere else on your face, you most likely have a combination skin type.
