Like a Facial in a Bottle!  

" A cult favorite, P50 is a magic potion that does it all. Exfoliates, Hydrates, and Balances the pH of the skin, it's a prep step before any skincare." - Danuta Mieloch

Danuta recommends P50 for everyone, even those with super sensitive skin (should use P50V a milder version).  P50 "1970" is the most effective and most commonly used formula of P50.  If you are still unsure which formula is most suitable for you please contact us so that we may assist you.

*As featured in NY Times and Huffington Post

Size:  (Travel) 1.07 oz / 5.1 oz. / 8.5 oz.


How To Use

A good skincare regime starts with a thorough cleansing.

Next apply Biologique Recherche P50 Original "1970" onto a cotton pad. Starting at the decollete move upward to the neck and face. Use a gentle patting motion.  Allow P50 to penetrate before applying the next product. Avoid eye area.

Please note: Your skin may feel a tingling sensation, this is the way P50 works. It has active ingredients and penetrates deeper than most products on the market. Watch our How To Exfoliate video!

Use P50 1970 if nothing else Review by phylit
I have always had good skin but this product has taken my skin to a whole new level of amazing. If I were on a desert island and could only bring one beauty item,and nothing else, it would be P50 1970. It's a miracle product. (Posted on 2/5/14)
Great product, lives up to the hype. Review by Sade
I probably shouldn't be writing this review so soon, but I'm super excited about the results after two days.

My skin is GLOWING! My acne scars are fading and while it does sting a little upon application, and my skin feels a little tight afterwards, the feeling goes away immediately when I follow up with serum and moisturizer.

Really and truly a great product. Also, the customer service at Rescue Spa is phenomenal. (Posted on 2/1/14)
Amazing Review by Lia
I have tried a lot of high end lines and products, but absolutely nothing compares to the results I've seen with Biologique Recherche. When I stopped taking hormonal birth control, I had breakouts like I've never experienced--everything from whiteheads and blackheads to inflamed cysts. Within a month of using Lait U, P50, Masque Vivant, and Creme Dermopurifante, my skin is just about back to normal. (I started out with just P50 but definitely saw better results using the whole line.) These products are very much worth this investment. (Posted on 1/2/14)
The customer service is wonderful! Review by Ginny
The recommendations are all great! The customer service is wonderful! I love using the p50 and this is why I decided to purchase my skin care products from Rescue Spa.

overall amazing Review by Arta
I swear by this creme. I was so hopeless at one point because my breakouts were so gross and I have a really terrible habit of picking my face. Its been about 6 months since i began using Biologique Recherche products in general and my skin has become a different breed. I rarely ever break out anymore and when I do, i do not pick my face because I know these products will actually make my pimples go away. It has also given me a much more even complexion. I really have only good things to say about this product. It may seem very thick and intimidating but it is actually extremely nourishing and will not make you break out.

I use the P50 lotion also and the mask vivant (I try once a week but I usually use it once every two weeks). Nonetheless, these products have saved my skin. The price is not as low as other skincare products, but it truly is a remarkable product. I really really really would recommend at least getting the lotion P50 with the cream. They are the dynamic DUO! (Posted on 12/5/13)
thank god Review by Basia
A few years ago a neighbor asked if I would join him for cocktails with a friend who was distressed because his wife left him a week ago. As he described the pain and suffering, he shared the fact that he came home to find his wife had removed all her possessions from their home. But, he added, thank god she left me the P50. My male colleague asked what is P50 that was so precious to him. We smiled and said you MUST check out the Rescue Spa. (Posted on 12/5/13)

in love Review by Lauren
I've totally blocked out my life before P50 because I don't want to remember my skin any other way than it is now! Seriously though, my face has never looked better. (Posted on 9/4/13)

Miracle Review by Katie
If you can't afford a facial but need something to help your skin, try this… it has been a miracle worker for me. (Posted on 7/11/13)
Yes, you DO need a toner! Review by Lindsay C
For someone who has access to powerful serums, luxurious cleaners, and rich moisturizers, you’d be surprised at how simple my skincare routine is: cleanser, moisturizer (and SPF), and the occasional mask or eye cream. It wasn’t until recently, when my esthetician recommended incorporating a toner to balance my slightly oily/slightly dry T-zone, that I found a new product taking a spot in my starting lineup. It turns out toners (P50 in particular) have come a long way since their association with acne-plagued teenagers and the distinct astringent scent of Sea Breeze! (Posted on 5/31/13)
WOW! Review by Lisa
I recently purchased p50.I had some breakouts during the first few days and said why am I doing this I look worse.I stuck with it and a week later my skin looks really good and balanced.I immediately called up and asked for a skin regime to go with the p50.I got great products and handwritten instructions on how to use them..Just started my other products and I can already see a difference..So glad I invested in myself.I feel and look great! (Posted on 1/3/13)
I have large pores and had been searching forever for a product that really changed the appearance of my skin. This is it. Yes it's expensive but totally worth it. (Posted on 11/21/12)
A lifesaver Review by Kate
When I worked in Philadelphia I used to get a facial every few months at Rescue. The ladies there kept urging me to use P50 and I hesitated because of the price. It's worth it's weight in gold. I barely have to use moisturizer anymore because my skin is so perfectly balanced. I'm a diplomat serving overseas now, so I stock up every time I'm back in the states -- and the travel-size is a must. I've had the big guy explode in my luggage and it's not a pretty sight -- or smell. But thanks to the ladies at Rescue for the skin-changing recommendation! (Posted on 11/20/12)

WORLD of difference! Review by D
I had a wonderful facial at Rescue. I have always had acne, and for years have had cystic acne (I'm 43). The aesthetician recommended P50 and it has made a WORLD of difference! I'm thrilled. (Posted on 5/18/12)
This is AMAZING... Review by Valliance C.
This is AMAZING...well known in France, but a secret here...its a facial in a bottle. I swear it will change your skin...P50 lotion. (Posted on 4/30/12)
Amazing product Review by Laura
I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts when too dry or too oily and this little miracle product does the trick. I can't tolerate retinols, benzoyl peroxide, or other products that when I have a breakout, but P50 is gentle yet effective. This product balances, clarifies, tones and brightens. LOVE! (Posted on 2/19/12)

already working within a couple of days Review by Angela C.
I have seen differences already! This is a smelly product but if it works, it's worth it. I also have a really understanding fiance so he doesn't mind the chemical lab smell. Or hasn't complained yet. (Posted on 1/17/12)

P50, ladies. Learn it. Live it. Nosebleed price of $60-something dollars, worth every fresh-faced penny. (Posted on 1/17/12)

Extreme amounts of continuing education keeps the Rescue team on top of the skin care field. The estheticians at Rescue want to heal your blemishes, not massage them into hiding for a few days. They offer a full line of services & products, as well as sound advice, that will truly help treat your complexion insecurities. Splurge on P50, the 'exfoliator' featured at Rescue, in any of its amazing forms, to keep your skin fresh & blemish free! (Posted on 1/17/12)
using the p50 Review by Kathy M.
I am forever indebted to my mother-in-law for giving me a gift certificate to go here when I moved to Philadelphia. I wouldn't have normally splurged on such a place but once I got a facial from Tirzah I was hooked and worked it into my budget to go here every 2-3 months. Over the past year she helped me change my skin. I'm sad that I just moved cities so can't continue to go to her but I'll keep using the p50 and hope to find someone like her in my new city. (Posted on 1/17/12)
I've tried a lot of different things throughout my life and nothing has ever worked like this. I highly recommend it! Review by Jessica S.

I've never had great skin. It's sensitive, break-out prone, and has certainly never had that dewy glisten...until now, that is.

With my wedding coming up in June, I made my first appointment last month and had my second facial today. The difference after just two treatments is remarkable. She has unclogged a bunch of blackheads and sloughed away a lot of dead skin. Like many others have mentioned, the P50 lotion she recommended is a great product and worth the hefty price tag.

I completely trust her to make my skin beautiful for the 'big day'--which is huge because I've tried a lot of different things throughout my life and nothing has ever worked like this. I highly recommend it! (Posted on 1/17/12)
Travel Size! Review by Samantha L.
If you are like me, packing liquids in your checked luggage makes you a bit fearful. Who hasn’t had a bottle of shampoo or perfume open during a flight? P50 “1970″ from Biologique Recherche is now available in a 1.7 ounce travel size. So now your favorite skin care product can travel with you, right where it belongs…in your carry on cosmetics case.
