Woman with glowing skin who used the best natural face products poses behind some plants.

Biologique Recherche has earned a sterling reputation as one of the best skincare brands by producing some of the best natural face products in the world. Ciel Spa is honored to be one of the few select vendors allowed to sell these essential skincare products, as well as the only Expert Center for Biologique Recherche in Los Angeles.

These products have earned a cult-like following, and for good reason, too! Once you experience the difference, you’ll understand why the beauty community is so passionate (some say obsessed!) with this range of luxury French skincare. From luxury face masks to natural skin serums and cleansers, here’s a quick look at seven of our favorite Biologique Recherche products that will keep your skin glowing all year long.

Our Favorite Essential Skincare Products for Flawless Skin All Year Long

Two white bottles of the essential skincare product Lotion P50 posed next to gold jewelry.

1. The Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 Collection

The Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 collection consists of the best natural face products ever bottled. Lovingly called “Jesus in a bottle” by its many adoring fans, Lotion P50 is famous for giving skin a halo-like glow, hence the nickname.

Despite having the word “lotion” in the official name, P50 products technically aren’t lotions — they’re exfoliating acid toners that completely refresh the skin’s pH balance to eliminate acne, balance texture, shrink pores, brighten dark spots, and hydrate the skin. These products are notorious for their pungent, harsh aroma, but the results are well worth the stench!

The original Lotion P50 1970 formula contained phenol, a controversial ingredient that gives these toners their signature burning and numbing sensations that P50 fans love. There are also new formulas available that don’t contain phenol. Regardless of which you choose, you’re getting the best natural face products around.

Available as old or new formulas, there are four main versions of Lotion P50:

  • P50W is the mildest version and is ideal for mature, dry skin.
  • P50V is the mid-strength version that’s recommended for people with sensitive skin.
  • P50 is the full-strength version that’s used for treating oily skin.
  • P50 PIGM 400 is specially formulated for users with hyperpigmentation.

Besides those essential skincare products for facial use, Biologique Recherche also makes Lotion P50 Corps and Gommage P50 corps for all over body use, so you can get glowing, radiant skin from — literally! — head-to-toe.

If you’re looking for the best natural face products for halting breakouts in their tracks, you’re going to love Masque Vivant. It’s one of Biologique Recherche’s most popular natural face masks. Famous for its purifying qualities, and natural ingredients include yeast extract, witch hazel, and lactic acid, this popular face mask is a fantastic choice for those with oily or less even-toned skin.

Creme Dermopurifiante is an essential skincare product for nourishing, purifying, and hydrating the skin. Perfect for those who are prone to oily skin and/or acne, this natural face cream contains hyaluronic acid and all-natural yeast and cucumber extracts. The hyaluronic acid locks in your skin’s natural moisture, while the yeast extract purifies the skin and the cucumber extract soothes and stops inflammation.
