The lovely Gatineau Family have put together the perfect collection to see you through Summer and I am here for it. Regular readers will know I have been featuring Gatineau for years on my blog, because I really enjoy the brand and I know that so many of you do too.
I was thrilled to receive the upcoming QVCUK Todays Special Value. This five piece collection contains lots of firm favourites which will make your skin glow this Summer and I love a Glow! If you are new to Gatineau head HERE to read all about the brand. Included in the collection are the following items:
Supersize Floracil Gentle Eye Make Up Remover 400ml
This is my absolute holy grail eye make up remover, I love this and a Clarins one and use nothing else on my eyes. Infact, when they discontinued the original Floracil a few years ago, I stocked up on so many bottles because I just love it. Thank goodness they brought it back (lets not talk about the Floracil of 2017 though) because my eyes are happy. Why is Floracil such an iconic product loved by hundreds of thousands of people? It is an easy to use cooling and refreshing oil free treatment that dissolves make up quickly whilst making the eye area feel fresh and bright. It has the same PH as tears and is soooo gentle that my sensitive eyes absolutely love it. It doesn’t sting or smart the eyes or leave them red and dry but removes everything quickly. I also love to use this if my eyes are feeling tired as a quick refresher. My favourite eye make up remover in the world ever. The End!
Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Eye Cream with wand 15ml
This Iconic eye cream that I think was launched around 2015 is my favourite from the brand because the results I achieved using it, were outstanding. This absolute Gem of an Eye Cream, really is the Crème de La Crème. This is up there with the big brand names that you can only purchase in THE most exclusive stores in London. Gatineau’s Scientists have worked so hard for years to produce the best eye cream possible and I am still truly thrilled and amazed by the results. Containing a pure infusion of real precious ingredient’s such as Caviar Extract, 17 amino acids and trace elements and minerals, all which speed up the natural production of Collagen as well as being rich in A, B1. B2, D, it is a powerful cream that aims to slow down the ageing process around the delicate eye area, whilst giving an intense level of hydration. This transforms dry, creapy skin, and leaves the eyes looking firmer, smoother and rested. It is a lovely consistency that is light and cooling and has an almost gel like feel to it. A little really does go a long way. When I am tired, ill or run down it is always my eyes that suffer, this cream has worked wonders on them thanks to the Luxurious caviar. Did you know caviar has 3 x more Essential Fatty Acids than the oily fish that we eat and this is able to penetrate deep down at a cellular level and deeply moisturise, nourish and protect our delicate eye area!
Gatineau Eye Wand
With this cream comes and fab little gadget, the ‘Gatineau Eye Wand’. This applicator feels cool on the skin and used in conjunction with the cream, can reduce puffiness, dark circles and fatigue. Using this wand applies the correct amount of pressure to the eye area and it feels beautiful. I love using it and am a bit addicted to doing so. It just feels so relaxing. It doesn’t drag or pull. It is so easy to use, just apply a little of the cream to the wand and gently, using big circles sweep it under and around the eye, and up and over the brow bone. You can also use sweeping circles over any dark patches that you have and years ago, I used this constantly with great success. If you struggle with puffy and tired looking eyes this really has amazing clinical results and i saw incredible results myself on puffiness.
Radiance Enhancing Gommage 75ml
If you purchased the April Gatineau TSV that also contained this product, you will be ready for a top up. As you may know I love a great exfoliator. There is nothing worse than the thought of leaving dead skin cells on my face as this just leave the skin looking grey and lifeless. This means any products applied on top cannot work to their ability. Sloughing away these dead skin cells really awakens the skin, takes away all those impurities and leads to a brighter, healthier looking complexion, which we all want right? This product is perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin and uses a mild enzymatic formula to remove the dead cells. You will not feel any particles or grains scrubbing against the skin, it is so gentle, looks gorgeous and smells OMG AMAZING! I literally salivate when I use this product hahaha.
It has a real zesty, citrus uplifting scent that makes this an absolute joy to use. Massage the beautifully sparkly, illuminating gel gently over the face including crows feet around the eyes, on DRY skin. Leave it to sit for a minute or two and you will see that it has changed to a liquid. Rinse off with warm water and glowing skin should be glaring back at you! A great tip – after a period of ill health, stress, or tiredness, apply a layer all over the face and neck and rest for ten minutes then wipe away, this gives a more intensive treatment. This product should ideally be used twice a week.
Radiance Refreshing Jelly Mask with Applicator 50ml
Perfect for use on those hot days we have been promised, Radiance Refreshing Jelly Mask has a multitude of uses for all skin types. Wonderful when applied cool from the fridge using the enclosed applicator this is a luxurious mask that can be used 2-3 times a week for a radiance boost.
Containing Jania Rubens which is a powerful Red Algae which supports Collagen and Elastin production, Pomegranate Pith Extract which gives the most mouth-watering scent and adds an exfoliating property, plus balancing and calming Geranium Extract, Antioxidant Rich Kakadu Plum , calming Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid, you would not believe this pot could hold that much goodness but it does!!
I love to apply a thin layer to my skin when i am feeling and looking tired and relax for 15 minutes, the jelly is a bit messy to apply but so worth it as it feels lovely and cool on the skin. My dehydrated skin pretty much drinks it in, but when i remove the residue my skin looks unbelievably awake, fresh and bright and feels super hydrated. This is the mask i love to use if i have had a busy day and am going out in the evening and want to reapply a fresh make up as the skin looks smooth and hydrated.
Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Cream 50ml
A full pot of loveliness wrapped up in this light weight cream. What surprises me the most about this cream is 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 reminds me of the texture of Elemis pro-Collagen Marine Cream. If you have dry skin, or are suffering with 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 wrinkles, dryness and pigmentation and give a healthy looking glow. Each morning I am thrilled with the results and my skin feels “fed”. I know it is easy for me to say as I am a Gatineau Fan, but if this is your first use of the brand, you really will be doing your skin a great favour by using this wonderful collection.
I am absolutely thrilled with this Todays Special Value from Gatineau, it contains so many favourites and really is perfect for hydrated, healthy looking skin. The inclusion of two masks was a lovely surprise too! The value for money is also outsanding.
The collection contains product worth £280.00!! Can you believe that? I believe the price is around £74.00 and you can purcahse it HERE.
