I wanted to update my little Biologique Reserche collection over here and provide you guys with more ingredients list.
Not long ago, I acquired 3 products that intrigued me, so let me get straight to it:
LOTION P50 PIGM 400
This is meant to be much more brightening and tackling hyper-INGpigmentation issues more directly.
After using it for a month, I can say this: It is way less strong than P50 1970 (I feel my skin lacks exfoliation when using PIGM 400) and more comparable to P50. Which is probably about right because of no phenol content in this.
Comparing to the P50 (non phenol formula) this has a bit of a different acid blend. It does not smell as vinegar-ish as P50.
PIGM 400 is a blend of Alpha-Hydroxy acids, Beta-Hydroxy acids, Poly-Hydroxy acids as well as Phytic acid (I personally have great results with Phytic acid)
I personally do not notice a big difference in my face but I did notice that some of my neck hyperpigmentation is fading.
As with last post, you can read more info HERE

This is a cream that is meant to protect your skin when using susncreens. It prepares the skin to have less irritating reaction to sunscreens. It is meant to be used when frequent re-application of sunscreen will be needed throughout the day.
So far I find it very soothing and hydrating. I will test it out fully at the end of this month when I go on vacation to Mexico.

FLUIDE VIP O2
It was recommended to me as a finishing serum for my face and eyes. Supposedly it brightens the complexion and helps with blemishes.
Honestly, I did not see a difference on my face, so I use it exclusively around my eyes. It does brighten it a bit. Would I repurchase this? NO.
I do not think it does anything extraordinary (you’d better invest in the lotion and one of their masks). The price is also astronomical for the amount and considering it does not live up to its hype, I really do not feel comfortable recommending this.
Maybe it would work for a very asphyxiated / smoker’s skin, but in my case it was like adding a layer of liquid that only made my skin stickier / oilier throughout the day without any added benefit.
Quite a disappointment because the Masque VIP O2 and Lait VIP O2 are stunning products.
