A Detoxifying Afternoon At Biologique Recherche Institut

Do you know Biologique Recherche? It’s not as famous as Sisley, La Mer or Clarins, but on the contrary that’s an exclusive and luxurious skincare brand for happy fews. In partnership with Air France La Première since many years, this niche brand is not to be missed now. Especially since they completely renewed their Institut in Paris!


Biologique Recherche allies both qualitative components and extreme concentration of active ingredients ; that’s what differentiates them from most of other cosmetic brands. Let’s review what makes this brand unmissable and why their Institut on Champs-Elysées definitely worth the visit.

The iconic Lotion P50

The Lotion P50, a balancing exfoliator result of 30 years of research and improvement, is certainly Biologique Recherche’s most iconic product. Applied in the morning and in the evening, it gently exfoliates the skin, regulates excessive sebum secretion, moisturizes and helps maintain the epidermis’ acid pH.

The product has developed a glowing reputation for being like a facial in a bottle that often delivers overnight results. Over 230 Influenster reviewers have rated it five stars, saying the product has changed their skin forever.

And this lotion is the keystone of facial treatments proposed at Biologique Recherche Institut on Champs-Elysées, Paris!

The high-end atmosphere of Biologique Recherche Institut

I had the opportunity to enjoy a facial treatment at Biologique Recherche Institut, and I have to say that my experience was a dream from the beginning to the end.

Institut entrance in Champs-Elysées

First, the location. Settled on the lower part of the Champs-Elysées, the atmosphere is highly luxurious not to mention the beauty of the building. A typical French classical architecture edifice at the end of a discreet place, magical!

Once past the main door, you enter the world of Biologique Recherche: a warm and relaxing interior design, high-end furniture and a crew of therapists ready to take care of you. After a quick tour and an introduction of product collections, I have been taken to the room to start my treatment.

A personalized experience

That was probably the most surprising part of my facial treatment, in a good way. The therapist actually started to analyse my skin with a professional sensor machine named “Skin Instant Lab” before applying any product, in order to fully personalize my treatment. Is my skin too dry? Too tanned in some areas? Should the product be low or high concentrated? Etc… At the end, I received a detailed form with all the characteristics of my face’s skin. Brilliant!

According to this analysis, the therapist decided to go with a strong cleansing – with Lotion P50 – followed by a deep moisturizing and a light tone balancing under my eyes. I never had such a dedicated treatment in the past, and believe me I did a lot. Very appreciable.

After 60 minutes of facial detoxification and relaxation, the therapist offered me to soothe a bit in the treatment room before going back to the reception. She kindly proposed me to purchase some products according to my skin examination – no hard sell there, don’t worry – and I went back home with a bunch of lotion and moisturizer. My new routine can start.

Try yourself!

Now, the best is to try by yourself. Whatever is it through a Spa treatment at the Institut, or through a new skincare routine at home, I definitely recommend to use Biologique Recherche products. They are efficient and reliable – hundreds of reviews can certify it – and will make you entering the golden circle of luxury niche cosmetics users.
