Horror….the word Summer is on the blog! I repeat the word Summer is on the
blog hahaha and hooray for that because i for one am bloody freezing! So,
without further ado and with the promise of summer lets check out the Gatineau
Summer Body Collection!
for preparing our bodies for the promise of warm summer days and lazy holidays,
this 3 piece collection from Gatineau is a firm favourite by customers
worldwide. Included in the collection is :
accelerating Lotion 400ml –
Accelerators are fantastic products for getting your skin summer ready. They
prepare your skin by bringing the Melanin levels to the surface.
This means that when we finally expose our bodies to the sun, there is
less shock to the system, sometimes less burning (always use a suitable SPF)
and less troublesome problems such as prickly heat. They can be applied at
least 8-10 days before a holiday to really maximise your tan, and
also just before and after tanning for that extra boost. I however,
start in April to get my skin as prepared as possible and continue right
through until the end of September.
Accelerators are great for the whole family for the reasons listed above.
Prickly heat can be very painful and unsightly and can really stop many
people venturing out in the sunshine. For me personally, I used to use Tan
Accelerators to literally accelerate my tan! Sounds simple right? Many years
ago, going back…. 20 or so years. The Body Shop used to do an amazing product
that gave me a deeper, darker, richer tan and lasted so much longer, it used to
contain Black walnut I think and was gorgeous.
Now I use Tan
Accelerators, because my skin has become very sensitive to sun, due to
harsh medication. Also at the fabulous age of 43, I want to make sure my skin looks
and feels its most healthiest. Gatineau Tan Accelerating Lotion is a
lovely light, almost milky lotion that really cares for the skin. It contains
anti-ageing Melatogenine skincare products to really boost the look
and feel of the skin whilst preparing it for the sun. It sinks into the
skin beautifully, leaving my skin soft, supple and very hydrated. The smell of
this lotion is gorgeous, uplifting, clean and fresh. It is non greasy, easily
absorbed and feels just like a beautiful body lotion. Usually this is my
go to after a shower or bath in the evening as I love the clean, fresh feeling.
This helps give my skin a natural even tan and definitely prolongs it too.
I find the Gatineau Tan Accelerating Lotion evens out patchy areas and tans
those hard to tan parts. A constant repurchase year after year.
Hand Cream 400ml
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 years. 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.
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 particularly 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.
Body Lotion 400ml –
A super silky, soft,
decadent white lotion full of Passion Fruit enzymes to stimulate cell
regeneration, this is gorgeous to slather your body in after your bath or
shower. After the harsh weather over winter our skin can become dry, scaly and
itchy so it’s certainly time to start showing it some hydration and love before
we bare all on our summer holidays.
only does this lotion hydrate the skin but it gently exfoliates too whilst you
are massaging it in. It sinks in quite quickly after a lovely massage and
doesn’t feel sticky which is great as it means I can dress faster. Lovely for
both male and females to use head to toe. In fact the whole collection
is incredibly unisex.
Gatineau 3 Piece Summer Collection also comes with a fab beach bag included.
