Biologique Recherche Ingredients List and mini reviews:

It's a bit of a random post, but since I am in the process of packing/moving, I've managed to find skincare boxes that were hiding out in random places in the apartment. Before I throw them away and continuing on with the packing, here they are and my thoughts on them:

Ingredients of Creme VIP O2
Creme VIP O2: This cream has a pearly like appearance in the jar (it's a white cream), glides onto the skin and definitely leaves your skin a matte finish. It absorbs quickly for me, which is a plus. For someone like myself who is subject to extreme weather conditions and pollution, it helps my skin not feel super dry and helps keep my skin redness at bay due to the harsh winters. For those with super dry skin may not like this since I don't really consider this a hydrating cream. As a result of this cream, my skins texture has improved in terms of an overall brightening effect and my pores aren't as clogged used in conjunction with P50. I love this cream so much that I purchased another one. Price: $175

Ingredients of Creme Placenta
Creme Placenta: I used an entire tub of this and I was struggling to finish it. It's supposed to be a healing cream for those with acne breakouts in order to reduce the redness and inflammation. I don't think this did much for my acne. Granted my acne is hormonal, but on occasion if I am stressed out or break out from certain makeup products, I do break out. The texture is a bit thick, the color of the cream is like a beige/tan color. It absorbs well and I vaguely remember having the smell of stinky bread, although the smell was not as potent as it is in Creme Dermopurifiante. I won't be purchasing this again. Price: $57

Ingredients of Creme Amnios
Creme Amnios: This cream is supposed to be a skin renewal/regenerating cream, to be used at night. It has a pearly white appearance like Creme VIP O2. This cream is one of the very few original creams (that hasn't been reformulated) that came out when Biologique Recherché was launched. I don't mind the cream, but I don't think it did much for me either. It takes a bit more effort than the other creams I've tried to sink into my skin. I'm almost done with the tub of this and needless to say, I haven't seen much results with this. Will I be repurchasing this? No. Price: $123

Ingredients of Creme Dermopurifiante
Creme Dermopurifiante: This cream is more meant to be used at night to help with inflammation (from active acne) and the heal acne faster. The major downside to this cream: it's thick and it has a strong stinky bread smell. Like SUPER STRONG. I gagged when I first tried this back in May 2013. I remember wearing this during the summer and the cream was uncomfortable because it was so thick and you could feel it sit on top of your skin after absorption. Trust me, I almost wanted to get rid of this cream because of it. I kept at it for the sake of science and to give it a chance. Luckily for me, it has helped with my acne and my skin really feels super hydrated. Plus I think I got used to the smell of the stinky bread and how it feels on my skin. I haven't worn this recently since I am trying to finish Creme Amnios, and I am seriously anxiously wanting to use my Creme Dermopurifiante soon. I love this stuff. It's fantastic, I'm almost done with my 3rd tub of it. It's basically what I wanted Creme Placenta to be. Price: $87

  1. BR Creme Dermopurifiante is the best thing that's happened to my skin in many years. Actually I use it in the morning (yeah even under makeup but I apply moisturizer and sunscreen first) and the night and during both times I apply it over Clarins Lotus face treatment oil and it still works well. Actually it works a little too well because between the Creme Dermopurifiante and the Clarins Lotus oil my skin isn't as shiny constantly anymore but my face feels like it needs mor moisture sometimes.

    I have oily, sensitive and acne prone skin but I am using the Mirena coil, an IUD coil, now that I think is regulating my hormones and therefore my oiliness but sadly I think it takes away moisture on my face too.
