Tell every cult beauty lover you’re visiting Paris, and they’ll ask if you’ll be heading to Biologique Recherche’s Ambassade at Champs-Élysées. The good news is, you don’t have to look far to experience this luxury skincare brand as Biologique Recherche has opened their first and only retail and concept store in Asia at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands in June 2022.
In case you missed the beauty memo, here’s a lowdown on Biologique Recherche. Established in the late 1970s by a pair of biologist and physiotherapist Yvan and Josette Allouche, the brand focuses on the use of highly-concentrated active ingredients. The potent skincare products are tailored for each individual—with a three-stage methodology to determine what your skin needs and prescribing the right treatments to address them.
Conducted with a Biologique Recherche expert, the first stage will involve a thorough skin analysis to pinpoint the condition of your skin. Using the Skin Instant Lab, which involves a questionnaire, along with measurement devices to determine factors such as hydration, trans-epidermal water loss (T.E.W.L, an indication of barrier function) elasticity, sebum, pores, lines and wrinkles, redness and pigmentation. Complementing the Skin Instant Lab is the VisioLab, an analysis device which photographs the face and analyses each section. This then gives the Biologique Recherche expert a clear idea of your skin’s condition at that instance.
The second stage of the three-stage methodology involves a personalised skincare plan or facial treatment based on the results of the analysis. The whole idea is to help your skin reach its maximum potential, performing its function as a barrier to protect your body, as well as looking and feeling its best.
Lastly, with the incorporation of highly effective products, your skin is gradually conditioned to improve, addressing the concerns which have come up during the skin analysis. Each recorded analysis is known as a Skin Instant, and as skin reacts to factors such as climate, temperature, hormones, stress, sleep, medication and diet, the readings can differ even from day to day. It is recommended that you take a Skin Instant Lab every three months to see how your skin has progressed, and if products need to be swapped out to address other pressing skin issues which may have arose due to lifestyle or environmental changes.
While there are facial salons and spas offering Biologique Recherche facials and products previously, the flagship store is the first retailer to follow the full brand protocol and advance skin analysis—replicating the experience which you would have if you had visited their store in Paris. It’s also the only store in Singapore that offers a full range of products, along with a tester bar so you’re able to try out the products in store, with the help of a Biologique Recherche expert who will advice on the use and suitability of these products.
There is also a facial cabin in the store offering the Biologique Recherche facials to pamper your skin, while taking into consideration the skin concerns you are trying to target. Each skin treatment uses highly-concentrated boosters with targeted massage techniques to yield visible results after each session. Like their skincare product recommendations, each skin treatment also works in tandem with the Skin Instant Lab and VisioLab results to select a booster for the skin. The facials also employ the use of high-tech treatment devices like the Remodeling Face, which uses three types of electro currents to enhance the penetration of skincare ingredients used during the treatment.
There are a myriad of skincare products that are in the market, but if you’re looking for a targeted solution to your skin needs, with proven analytical skincare tools that can help you achieve the best skin ever, make a visit to the Biologique Recherche MBS store today.
