I love sharing new skincare products with you, especially when they are from a brand that is very well loved on the blog. Gatineau are launching an incredible beauty cream as part of their upcoming 20th anniversary on Qvc celebrations as a Todays Special Value.
|Gatineau Qvc Tsv – 5 Piece Perfecting Skincare Collection|
As we are now well and truly in the throws of one of the busiest times of year for many of us, we need to make sure that our skin can cope with everything we throw at it. Whether that be less sleep, less hydration, more alcohol, rich food and cold weather, we need our skin to look as though it hasn’t a care in the world. Whether you are a long time Gatineau fan or are discovering the range for the first time, this collection contains a superb range of products to winter proof your skin.
This 5 piece Perfecting Skincare Collection contains the following.
Brand New Launch Perfection Ultime Retexturizing Beauty Cream 50ml global launch –
|Gatineau perfection Ultime retexturizing Beauty Cream|
This power packed, lightweight beauty cream, is superb for anyone that needs to hydrate their skin and give it a youthful glow. Packed full of Geranium Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Caviar Extract, it works really hard on fine lines and wrinkles to deeply hydrate them and plump them out making them look less pronounced. The hyaluronic is amazing at hydrating the skin and at this time of year we could all use some extra hydration and the Geranium oil adds a beautiful glow to the skin.

What surprised me about this product was that, not only is the texture incredibly silky smooth, but you only need to apply a small amount after your serum every morning and immediately my skin felt so hydrated and incredibly soft. Within just a few weeks, my lines are diminishing. It really is an incredible consistency and I absolutely adore this product. Seeing what a big fan of the Caviar eye cream I am too, clearly my skin enjoys the caviar inclusion…(sorry husband!!) hahaha. A hard hitting Beauty Cream, that reduces the signs of open pores and creates a beautiful base for make up ,suitable for anyone over the age of 30 or struggling with fine lines and dehydrated skin that needs something extra from their day cream.

Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Cream Dry Skin 30ml –
|Gatineau Age Benefit, showing the richer texture compared to the Beauty Cream|
A firm favourite with many Gatineau users , this cream is a great evening cream. When I first tried it over a year ago, what surprised me the most was how light it feels compared to the high level of hydration it delivers to the skin. My skin drinks it in and instantly feels plump and juicy. It doesn’t sit on the skin and feel uncomfortable at all. It reminds me of the Elemis pro-Collagen Marine Cream in its consistency. If you have dry skin, or are suffering winter skin, skin that feels rough and flaky to the touch, I really believe you will see a difference using this. I have lots of pigmentation on my skin and because of the Hyaluronic Acid and AHAs in this cream it really works to reduce the wrinkles, dryness and pigmentation and give a healthy looking glow. Each morning I am thrilled with the results and my skin feels “fed”. Combine this with the Perfection Ultime in the morning and you have a superb winter skin regime.
Make sure you do not throw this little guy away! This genius spatula gets under the rim of your pots of cream so that you get every last drop out, fabulous!
Firming Throat Gel 50ml –
|Gatineau Firming Throat Gel|
Another iconic Gatineau product and one of only 3 neck creams that I use and love, this couldn’t be easier to apply or offer greater results. I love the slip factor to this product which makes it easy to apply to the neck and jawline in upward strokes and also the fresh scent. I realised when i was about 38 that actually using my daily moisturiser over my neck was, yes, better than nothing, but not as good a proper throat gel. I believe that much later in life your neck will thank you for looking after it properly. There is no point in having a beautifully hydrated, healthy looking face and a craggy, wrinkly neck and throat -in my opinion. So now at the ripe ole age of 42 i make sure i always use a throat/neck product. This cooling, lightweight gel, feels so refreshing on the skin. Now, in my opinion, this is not a product for a 20 year old, but if you are starting to see slackening skin on your throat, neck and décolleté then it really is time to invest in something like this. The texture is sublime, full of beautiful plant based protein extracts and anti-oxidants this leaves your skin looking and feeling younger, smoother and hydrated. Wouldn’t be without it.
Vitamina Hand Cream 400ml –
|Gatineau VitaminA Hand Cream incredibly Silky texture|
Oh my goodness, I know I sound like I am telling porkies but I actually use this hand cream every single night before I go to bed. It is the last part of my beauty routine and has been for months. This 400ml size just goes on and on and on. I also use it on my heels if I have a little to much on my hands. It smells incredible and feels so beautiful and silky on the skin. You can use this anti-ageing hand cream, thanks to the addition of marine collagen and Vitamin A, as often as needed, whenever you have just washed your hands or if they are feeling particular dry. Not just a hand cream, this is also a hand treatment as it helps smooth out lines on the backs of the hands, even out the skin tone an aid with any pigmentation issues. Fabulous unisex product.
Pro-Radiance Anti Ageing Gommage 75ml –
|Gatineau Pro-Radiance Anti-Aging Gommage|
This product is so much fun to use! If you are seeing really dull, lifeless skin staring back at you in the mirror then a couple of times a week you need to apply this mask. Not only does it soften and brighten the skin, but it pulls off dead skin cells and yukky impurities.
|Gatineau Anti-Ageing Gommage I always use too much eek!|
Apply a thin layer of mask over your face ( I use too much all the time!), avoiding your eye areas and relax for 10 minutes or when the cream has completely dried into a mask. Gently peel off the mask as if you were peeling a sun tan…I know! I know SUNSCREEN PEOPLE, but that’s the easiet way to describe it, and notice how soft and clean your skin immediately feels.
|Peeling The Anti-Aging Gommage|
You can remove any residue easily with warm water and then continue with your tone, serum, moisturise routine.
This whole collection comes in a lovely Gatineau branded bag making this the perfect gift.
My thoughts on this collection – A wonderful collection to get your skin in tip top condition throughout the cold months and keep it looking and feeling healthy and glowing. Really generous sizes will last a long while, making this an affordable luxury. If dull skin, open pores, seeing the signs of ageing and dehydration are you key concerns then this could be a great collection to try. This whole collection will be available on Qvcuk for one day only as a TSV on 17th December for 24 hours or whilst stocks last. You can purchase HERE when it goes live on Friday, late evening, 16th December (but keep checking). The value of the products are worth £258!! This collection will cost £69.96 plus p&p and will be on 4 easy pays, which is amazing.
