The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
A few months ago, I had the opportunity to get a Biologique Recherche facial at Rescue Spa in Philadelphia, and I emerged with a new face -- glowing, lifted and toned with defined cheekbones and nary a blackhead or freckle in sight. The aesthetician recommended an extensive regimen of Biologique Recherche products (of course), but stressed the importance of P50.
So I picked up a bottle of Lotion P50 1970. It's a blend of acids (lactic, salicylic, malic, phytic) and niacinamide that deeply cleans, brightens and exfoliates. The 1970 version also contains satisfyingly tingly yet extremely medicinal-smelling phenol, an antiseptic that has made my pores almost invisible. It eliminates any dirt or makeup my cleanser missed, and it makes additional exfoliation completely unnecessary -- that's how well these acids work.
Now, P50 is the Windex (a la "My Big Fat Greek Wedding") of my beauty routine. Sun spot? P50. Zit? P50. Hangover? P50. But I'm still not a toner person -- I'm a P50 person. --Dawn Davis
