As a follow-up to my post about my morning skincare routine, here is what I use in the evenings and why:
In the past, I’ve used Kerastase hair masks as conditioners so I thought I should try one of their actual conditioners. I am a big fan of their hair mask for color-treated hair (although mine isn’t) but they recently reformulated it and I wasn’t sure I’d like the new formula. I chatted with a Kerastase representative and asked which conditioner would make my hair feel soft and they recommended Fondant Fluidealiste from their Discipline line.
I’ve been using a P50 lotion for nearly 4 years. I started with the P50V 1970, then P50 , and have used P50V for the past couple of years. I recently decided to try P50W because I don’t really have acne and have skin that is on the drier side and prone to redness. I’ve seen P50W advertised as being for sensitive skin, rosacea-prone skin, and also drier mature skin. And I’ve also seen P50V advertised as being for dry and sensitive skin. Either way, I believe P50W is the gentlest formula.
Mia’s review: Over time, I’ve been switching to gentler formulas of P50 because I use it twice a day and also use tretinoin one per day in the evening. I let the lotion P50 sit on my skin for Continue reading
I am a big fan of the original French version in Lait. Like if a friend is visiting France, they are bringing back a couple of bottles for me. So I was delighted to learn that Le Petit Marseillais is now available in the USA. The bottles are larger and they don’t offer Lait. So instead, I purchased Cotton Milk & Poppy in hopes that it would be a similar scent.
After hearing about Lotion P50 nearly a year ago, I’ve googled the product extensively. There are a lot of reviews but I found few about Biologique Recherche’s P50v 1970 formula. The “v” version is supposed to be a little milder for those with sensitive skin types and also those new to using P50. The idea is that after an adjustment period, one can graduate to using the full strength version of P50. The “1970” means it is the original version that includes phenol, a controversial ingredient, that is banned in some countries.
Also, for those of you who are new to P50, it isn’t really a lotion. It is a toner that exfoliates. You use it after cleansing and before moisturizing.
