TOMBOY · Biologique Recherche Explained by Melanie Grant
For those of you who haven’t yet dipped their toe in the plethora of skin-safe acids that are on the market and have no REAL idea what Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is… My question is, where have you been living!? Closely followed by something that I can’t believe I can truthfully say… “Don’t sweat it, I know Melanie Grant – she ‘s got our back.” And if you don’t know who Melanie Grant is, then you need to google her immediately.
For context: Melanie Grant has treated #TOMBOYBeautyGirl alumni, Nicole Warne, Erin Wasson, Georgia Fowler, and Megan Blake Irwin. In short: she’s very good!
To preface, Biologique Recherche is a 40-year-old, French beauty brand with a clinical approach. The aforementioned Lotion P50 is the brand’s hero proudct with a cult following.:
There will always be an air of mystery around this brand for me: the vintage, medicinally reminiscent packaging and names of products that I can’t quite comprehend, the fact that their best seller has people falling over themselves, or that another of their cult products is named Serum Placenta, for realz.
For “research purposes” I experienced a Biologique-focussed facial at heaven’s gates themselves (Melanie Grant Skin Health, Double Bay Clinic), and let’s just say I can now understood the hype. But as a curious beauty writer, It’s my job to want to know much, much more.
