Luxe Medical Beauty Research, aka MBR, is a German spa exclusive brand offering high-performance skincare using concentrated premium ingredients for optimal skin compatibility. Produced in small batches with care in mind, MBR offers competitive results free of parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrances.
Like Purlisse, I loved MBR so much I forgot to photograph everything and tossed my boxes out. Due to my skincare love-fest, only key ingredients are listed below. If you would like more information on what’s in each I would suggest reaching out to MBR directly. Their products use antioxidants, peptides, amino acids, and quality plant molecules to improve skin vitality on a cellular level, rejuvenate cell metabolism, and restore balance.
Each product I received is part of the BioChange line, offering environmental stress protection and maintaining healthy skin. Natural cell functions are revived and skin is able to regenerate and sustain a state of well-being, resulting in radiant, smooth skin. And, to maintain integrity airless packaging is used.
Once I have room in my routine I would buy a few new MBR items in a heartbeat! Medical Beauty Research didn’t disappoint. If you’re a Dallas local, Joanna Czech now carries this fantastic line in her spa
Like Biologique Recherche, a consultation with a professional is suggested to choose the best products for your skin type. Keep in mind MBR products are quite active! I had to step away from P50 while testing these, together they caused a not so pleasant reaction on my skin.
A gentle deep-pore cleansing exfoliant, Enzyme Cleansing Booster leaves your skin feeling like silk. It reminds me of Dermalogica’s Microfoliant, but luxe. I used this as a secondary cleanse to revitalize, radiate and purify my complexion into a matte and even tone. After prolonged use, you’ll notice refinement of your skin’s surface structure while it balances moisture.
Use by applying to the palm of your hand, emulsify with water to a fluffy-gentle foam and gently massage onto dry or damp skin. Allow to penetrate for a few moments before rinsing off. Completely safe for the eye area, too!

Oh, Beta Enzyme… you’re special. By far my favorite enzyme treatment to date. Not only does this gentle exfoliant slough away dead cells and excess oil leaving skin baby soft, but holy cow are extractions easy-peasy! I mean, they come out like butter. A little bit goes a long way, a 1 oz jar will last quite a while.
Start off using twice a week, 15 minutes each time and build up to daily use, steaming in the shower is a plus. Safe to use around the eye area and lip contour. A tingling sensation is normal! Make sure you remove this one thoroughly.

Cell Power Vital Serum is an all around winner for restoring and maintaining a healthy barrier. I have hormonal breakouts on a regular basis, and being fair they always leave a mark. This workhorse of a serum faded my scars faster than any other product I’ve used, and I keep brightening products around for this purpose!
Highly concentrated, Cell Power Vital increases epidermal cell metabolism, promoting the natural regeneration and renewal process of your skin. Once stimulated, skin creates its own hyaluronic acid, meaning it’s hydrated long-term. Radiant, firm, supple skin is in. The price point for a serum of this nature is spot on.

Key Ingredients: Hydrolite® 5, Hyaluronic Acid, Gatuline® Skin Repair Bio, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Syn®-Hycan, CroNoline™

How cool is this packaging? I literally giggled the first time I used it because I’m a child… obv. Luminous Pearl Extreme balances pigmentation and provides antioxidant vitamins into skin and restores balance, vitality, and radiance. Noticing a trend here? I was quite impressed to notice a few of my lighter sunspots dissipate while using this system, and I attribute much of that to this cream. Using vitamins from Kakadu Plum, the complex strengthens cell and tissue functions and prevents the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Skin’s defense system is restored and resilience to environmental aggressors are boosted.
