By now most people know the secret to perfect skin: Biologique Recherche. What was once a niche French family-owned brand with a cult following has grown into a household name among beauty lovers around the world. You’d be hard-pressed to see a beauty editor’s vanity counter without a bottle of Lotion P50 or Masque Vivant. Something like shock swept through the beauty community, seemingly overnight. In reality, the meteoric rise of Biologique Recherche products in the States has happened over the last 5-7 years. Despite their heavily in-demand products, the brand integrity and ethos has remained the same. Consumers can only purchase these high-end face masks and creams from certified estheticians and spas. At times, booking a treatment or refilling a mask can turn into arduous but worthwhile task.
And while Paris is still considered the Mecca of Biologique Recherche facials – specifically their signature Remodeling Face microcurrent treatment – appointments at the brand’s Ambassade de la Beaute are hard to come by. Like most things in Paris, emotional surprises exist at every turn.
Known for its glamour, luxurious suites, and Michelin starred restaurant, The Peninsula Hotel in Paris’s swanky 16th arrondissement offers a signature Biologique Recherche facial to rewind the clock back on skin elasticity and youthful glow — especially beneficial after a long flight from Los Angeles.
The Remodelling Face – a custom bio-electro therapy machine — is unique to Biologique Recherche and The Peninsula Spa utilizes its magical powers. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have four different currents activate muscles in your face you didn’t even know existed.
In addition to the signature Biologique Recherche facials, the spa at The Peninsula features wet and dry saunas, a cold plunge shower, and a relaxation room worthy of deep REM sleep. Whether it’s fashion week, a wedding weekend, or an inspired getaway to the City of Light, a stop at The Peninsula’s Spa should be on top of your to-do list.
