I kid you not, when I tried one of the products from the collection I am sharing with you, my exact words were “Shit that’s magical!” Professional eh? But seriously, I speak as I find and I do believe that this “Radiance Perfecting Skincare Collection” from Gatineau is possibly my favourite that they have EVER done.
This beautifully curated collection from those Parisian skincare masters – Gatineau, is a Todays Special Value collection that is exclusive to QVCUK launching on 8th December for one day only. Absolutely ideal for treating your skin to that perfect glow for the party season and beyond, this collection contains, not only some amazing favourites but two brand new launches. Containing ingredients that are fantastic at working on those fine lines and wrinkles, sallow skin and dehydration, this is a wonderful regime to slot in when you want to look your absolute best. (i’ll take it by the bucket load please!)
Included in this Radiance Perfecting Skincare Collection are the following ;
New & Exclusive Skin Perfecting Cream-Serum 30ml –
Stick a fork in me I’m done! Seriously, this product has me obsessing like a crazy person and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you! This multipurpose product is outstanding at hydrating and refining the skin. A super lightweight cream serum formula that is jam packed full of actives that infuse the skin deeply and target those areas our skin needs it the most.
Containing a plethora of ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, White tea for its powerful antioxidant properties, Wild Indigo Extract for soothing stressed skin, Amino Acids, Vitamins and plant Sugars and Sea algae’s, this serum has the power to not only hydrate and nourish the skin, but also protect it against environmental aggressors and inflammation, whilst boosting the skins Collagen and improving circulation. An almost spongy formula when you first touch it, the serum literally melts and disappears into the skin like magic. My skin loves the feel of this, it is not sticky or tacky and just leaves the skin looking rested and glowing. Great to apply before moisturising, but also as a mask once a week. I absolutely adore this product.
You then get a choice of moisturiser from either the Perfection Ultime Retexturizing Beauty Cream , Defilift 3D Perfect Design Cream or Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Cream….
Perfection Ultime Retexturizing Beauty Cream 50ml –
Having only launched a couple of years ago, this is a cream I really enjoy. 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. Hyaluronic is amazing at hydrating the skin and at this time of year we could all use some extra hydration ( I know I do) and the Geranium oil adds a beautiful glow to the skin.
What surprises me about this product is that, not only is the texture incredibly silky smooth, but you only need to apply a small amount after your serum every morning. 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!. A hard hitting Beauty Cream, that can reduce the signs of open pores and create 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.
New & Exclusive Radiance Perfecting Drops 18ml –
This was the product that made me almost scream with surprise and joy! Not only do these “Magical drops” contain skincare but they also have a make up element about them too! Win! Win!. In a beautifully designed bottle with a dropper, these stunning illuminating drops contain something called RED SNOW, which is enough to make me want to smother it all over my face. Red Snow, is a precious extract of the Camellia Japonica Flower that you may be familiar with and works incredibly well at smoothing and softening the skin whilst protecting it against environmental aggressors. Marula Oil, Vitamin C, Sunflower Oil and Hyaluronic Acid all work together in harmony to hydrate the skin, reduce redness, improve the skins luminosity and elasticity. Add to this the Blurring Microspheres which instantly blur fine lines and pores and this is a magical potion of wonderfulness.
If you know the consistency of a liquid highlighter it is like that in texture and look. You can apply this all over the face after moisturising to brighten the face with a lit from within glow, or, as I like to do, add it to your liquid foundation. I do also like to dot a few drops on my cheekbones and use it as a highlighter, it really is that pretty. Just one problem though…….i’d like it by the litre please Gatineau….hahahaha!
Nourishing Lip Balm SPF15 –
This clear lip balm works perfectly at this time of year to not only protect the lips against the wind and the cold weather, but it also offers a SPF15 protection which is brilliant. It really smooths and moisturises the lips on application and adds a lovely sheen to them. I love to pop this on as I head out to the school run and then when I get back I add my lipstick over the top knowing that my lips will look and feel great.
This collection also comes with a lovely Burgundy cosmetic bag displaying the brands logo and with gold coloured hardware.
My Thoughts on this collection – This is the second Todays Special Value in a row from Gatineau that I have absolutely loved! I don’t know who is putting these together but keep up the good work as we seem to have stepped up a gear with the contents. I was kindly invited to Windsor to have a facial using all of these products, but sadly it was around the time I moved into my new home and I just didn’t have the time to go, however, using these product at home is a wonderful luxury that I can perform everyday.
If you are looking to gift this to someone this Christmas, this is a great collection and I know I would be thrilled to receive it.
The Radiance Perfecting Skincare Collection from Gatineau is available exclusively on QVCUK on 8th December 2018 whilst stocks last. However, this collection is going on early presale from 6th December HERE. The collection has a value of £208 but will be available at £66 and on four easy payments which is amazing.
