Discover: Biologique Recherche Creme Dermopurifiante

Biologique Recherche p50 is and probably will continue to be one of my greatest skincare discoveries of all time. It is the only product i have ever tried that actually made a huge difference in my skin condition and lived up to all the promises and claims listed on the bottle. 
This extremely positive experience with such a niche brand inspired me to do a bit of research and see what else they had to offer. After i received a sample of the Creme Dermopurifiante in one of my p50 orders from Rescue Spa, i tried it for a few days and decided to take the plunge and order the full size. I had faith and high expectations, especially after one of their skin specialists mentioned that the Dermopurifiante would compliment the p50 beautifully.

Biologique Recherché Creme Dermopurifiante

This is how their site describes this purifying moisturizer;
"Creme Dermopurifiante is the go to moisturizer for unbalanced, prone to breakouts, and combination skin. It helps to purify the skin, reduce the appearance of redness and regulates oil production, it's anti-aging as well. For best results use with Lait U cleanserP50 1970 and Masque Vivant. After two weeks I guarantee your skin is going to be clearer and balanced!" Danuta Mieloch 

Biologique Recherche Creme Dermopurifiante: It protects the epidermis against external aggressions. It provides effective treatment for seborrheic skin without drying out the epidermis. It is recommended for imbalanced and/or reactive skin.

Active Ingredients;
Yeast extract, centella asiatica, thyme, lavender, usnic acid, aloe, wild pansy extract, coffee extract and vitamin C

Just like my beloved p50 this cream smells horrible  Its potent to say the least and may be extremely unpleasant to some people. I was prepared for this so I cant fault it on that but i am happy to report that the scent does not last very long and dissipates within minutes. Having used it now for a few months I will say that i am completely used to it now and honestly the results are worth the short-lived discomfort. 
The texture of this is kind of like whipped butter that becomes quite slippery once warmed up, ending with a satiny feel & finish on my face. Its not heavy at all, absorbs fully and quickly plus it leaves my skin feeling comforted and hydrated.

Despite the fact that I really love this cream and i would repurchase it again I am inclined to feel somewhat underwhelmed by the whole experience. However before i judge a great product I need to take in to consideration that because the p50 was so life changing I had extreme expectations for this cream. I really like it and i feel that its been very good to my skin overall so I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who is struggling with various skin imperfections. If you are already using the famous p50 then this is definitively something you may want to explore because they really do compliment each other. 

Biologique Recherche products are kind of tricky to find and purchase in North America but you can find almost their whole collection at Rescue Spa here. They also stock a lot of other hard to find brands such as Institut Esthederm, Chantecaille, Eve Lom and Jan Marini. 

I hope this was helpful! Have you tried any Biologique Recherche products?
