I found it on eBay for $38, I'll have to ask the seller if she ships to Denmark... beautyhabit.com will ship internationally, but it's a bit complicated and it takes forever.

Letthemeatcake, I believe P50 is supposed to leave your skin PH balanced... at least that's what BR says. I use the VIP serum, silk plus, and more recently yall 02 which is supposedly their best seller now. As for the creams, I love dermopurifiante as well as the EOR cream. I also use the VIP eye cream and Masque Vivant.

Their products are great and I love it that more and more people are coming to know about them... I'll never go back to commercial skincare lines now after BR... I really hope they never sell out for money like a lot of companies...

You use some great stuff! I've been wanting to try the VIP 02 serum forever..isnt it like $200? And the new Serum Yall 02..an extension of the VIP 02 line? I only use the VIP 02 cleanser but the whole line is oxygenating, which is fabulous. I have used the Silk Plus in the past also, liked it, now my aesthetician gave me the MC 110 No. 2 Restructurating Facial Fluid, but I dont know when to use it..it says it exfoliates. My only complaint is that since the serums are spray on, I dont feel it evenly hits my face, but I love the idea so I spritz once and then pat it, maybe unscrew the top and pour a bit into my palm and apply again.
I hope they stay the same also, and continue to put out new products..I'm desperately wanting to try the new Sensitive line!

I love having someone to share my love of BR with! I've tried to turn some of my friends onto it but they can't get past the smell of P50... LOL!

The VIP 02 serum is excellent... it feels a little funny on the face, like it's a bit sticky but I just use a small amount at night, it's supposed to be wonderful for your skin... very anti-aging though I can't really speak to that as I'm 25 but hopefully it's preventive as well. I just started using Yall 02 but my facialist said her clients have been raving about it... it's VERY expensive though! I use it b/c my skin has been on the dry side recently and it's supposedly very hydrating...

I'm not sure but I think you use MC 110 after P50 and before your serum and cream. I agree about the spray... I just spray it into my hand, about 3 sprays and put it all over my face with my hand.

You should def. pay a visit to my facialist if you are ever in NY or even just give her a call... she is amazing and an expert on BR products... she was trained in Paris by the founder of BR himself. Very sweet person as well and I'm sure she'd be more than happy to answer any questions even if you just give her a call... she was profiled on Vanity Fair beauty blog recently....

I know, I love this, having someone to gab with about the line..it's so fantastic! And I also understand about trying to turn friends onto it, although I have gotten my best friend to start using the cleanser and the P50, she's used to my weird fanatical obsessions..hehe. But I was in school to get my aesthetician license actually last year (reading about your aesthetician makes the fire in me come back, because that's so amazing how far she's gotten and being trained by Yvan Allouche, I'd love it) and I brought in the P50V and passed it around the room..hehe. One girl loved the smell, said it reminded her of Band-Aids, everyone else thought it smelled like a household cleaner..ha! Did you start really liking the smells after a bit? I do. The Masque Vivant I also have and I mix it with some baking soda, but I remember first trying it and almost gagging...love it now.

I'd love to try the new Yall 02! All their stuff is a bit sticky though isnt it? I'm very dry right now with the season change. And I'm 26! So in total agreement about it being preventive.

Thanks for the link and your posts. I would love to try your aesthetician in NY sometime, but I better call months ahead right?

Sofia Coppola is another celebrity that's a fan. In the pic from Vogue Paris in 2006 she photographed her beauty cabinet and there's two unidentified BR products, one's a serum (perhaps in old packaging with the silver pull-off top, since they're gold now) and then she has the Masque Vivant, a P50, Emulsion Originelle Regenerante, and the Creme VIP 02.

Yea, Sofia is def. one of their better known clients... I think she used to see Aida when she was NY...

It's true about the smell... you def. get used it and after awhile, I almost feel as though everything that doesn't smell like BR products is heavily fragranced and fake... haha... it's weird how the mind works...

Aida is usually booked in advance but calling a month before should be alright... she does have cancellations so if you are flexible with the time, you might get lucky... In any case, feel free to call her if you have any questions about the products as she is really quite sweet and an expert on them... She can also ship you anything you need.

I'm going to open an account with BR. As an aesthetician you must spend a minimum of $1500 to get their wholesale price, but I just love this line so much! I got all the packets and brochures in the mail, their pricelist and they recommend a 120% markup...the creams we use that retail for $66? Wholesale they are $22. I have been reading about the Yall Serum, it sounds so luxurious. The training takes place in New York I believe.

What?! A 120% markup? That is ridiculous! It sounds well worth it to be a wholesaler... the creams must be like less than $10 for them to make!

Yep. The VIP 02 Cleansers that retail for $85? $36 wholesale.
The P50 is $43 wholesale for the 8.5 fl oz.
Like mentioned creams are only $22, the Creme Dermopurifiante also comes in an 8.5 wholesale professional size, for $65. The same amount for a 1.7 oz!
Masque Vivant is $22. Retails for $66, and the Finishing Serums are $64 for the 1.2 oz for the VIP 02 which retails for $200.

I am going to make it my goal to get to New York for the training and to set up an account...I really want to work for them! Since it's still a "rare" unknown brand to most of the general public, where you do find it, that aesthetician has a huge following, so I'm thinking of moving somewhere that doesnt have an aesthetician with the line. I know it's huge in New York, it's pretty big in L.A. also, SF has an aesthetician I believe....

Wow! That is unbelievable... beautyhabit sometimes has a 25% off coupon and I think I'm getting a great deal and stock up... LOL! (I think they have a 20% off coupon now if you are interested)

I think Aida still trains others in NY but I'm not sure... I'd be happy to introduce you as I know her quite well... In any case, let me know if you do make it out to NY so we can meet up and talk more about BR!

BTW, I also just started using VIP 02 cream... love it! It makes my skin feel so nice!

I've never used this line- but after hearing you guys rave about it, I'm thinking of trying it for myself after December.

Prices seem a bit steep. But if the product delivers, I don;t mind paying.

Yes but as you know the products are so nutrient-rich and concentrated you need only small amounts..a cream lasts me probably six months easily...so the price is justified, although my cream's only $70...the finishing serums are the most expensive definitely and those arent usually used twice a day...do you use yours twice..and do you apply any serum OVER your cream like they suggest?
And I would love to meet up and discuss Biologique-Recherche!
