Gatineau Christmas Gift guide

I have absolutely loved getting to know Gatineau over the last few years and at Christmas time they are one of the most beautifully presented. Last year I showcased the Gatineau Melatogenine Cleansing Collection (here) which was a beautiful gift in the way it was presented and this year the sets are particularly beautiful and if you are new to Gatineau, this is a brilliant introduction to the brand and with their range priced between £25 to £88 you get great value for money.  Founded in 1932 by acclaimed Parisian skincare expert Jeanne Gatineau, we are celebrating 85 years as leading specialists in anti-ageing skincare. At Gatineau, we combine natural ingredients with cutting-edge biotechnology to create highly effective skincare that delivers visible and lasting results.

Gatineau Christmas Gift guide
The first set I have to share with you is the Gatineau Little Luxuries (£29) - Treat yourself to the Gatineau Little Luxuries Set, a collection of seven of the brand’s most beloved products to hydrate, nourish and revitalise your skin comes the description and what I love about this set is that you get a complete skincare routine made up of some amazing deluxe sized products.
Gatineau Christmas Gift guide - Gatineau Little Luxuries Collection
The Set Contains:

  • Gentle Silk Toner (50ml) - An alcohol-free toner designed to remove all traces of cleanser whilst respecting the skin’s pH and moisture levels. Formulated with soothing extracts of Silk and Cotton, pores are refined and the skin is left feeling refreshed and radiant. Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive.
  • Gentle Silk Cleanser (50ml) - Enriched with delicate Silk and Cotton Extracts, this luxurious milky cleanser gently dissolves all traces of make-up and impurities whilst conditioning the skin. Using Silk Extracts which work to promote cell regeneration and improve elasticity, Cotton Extracts which leave the skin soft and comfortable before finally, Sweet Almond Oil which nourishes and softens the skin. What I really like about this cleanser is that is isn't drying on the skin or nor does it make your face feel tight after using.
  • Radiance Enhancing Gommage (15ml) - Said to be perfect for sensitive skin, this mild enzymatic exfoliant is packed with fruit enzymes which remove dead cells for a radiant and energised complexion. Free from grains and beads, this gel formula is so gentle it can even be used around the eyes. It is enriched with vitamin C and helps to boost skin's natural defence. Radiance and luminosity are immediately increased and the complexion is brightened and toned
  • Melatogenine Futur PLUS Mask (15ml) - Gatineau describe this product as being their most powerful anti-wrinkle formula within a luxuriously rich cream and it is designed to smooth fine lines and wrinkles brighten the complexion and eliminate signs of fatigue.
  • Melatogenine AOX Advanced Rejuvenating Cream (15ml) - Give your daily skincare a powerful anti-ageing boost with our Mélatogénine AOX Advanced Rejuvenating Cream. Designed for skin showing the advanced signs of ageing, this rich moisturiser will deeply hydrate your skin whilst rewinding the effects of time. We've combined our youth activating molecule, Mélatogénine, with marine collagen to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Powerful anti-oxidants and probiotics nourish the skin for a boost in radiance. Day by day, skin is rejuvenated becoming firmer and smoother, for a younger looking you.
  • Collagen Expert Smoothing Eye Pads (1 Sachet) - An instant beauty boost, our Collagen-enriched eye pads are a refreshing treat for tired eyes. The perfect preparation for a special occasion, they diminish dark shadows and reduce puffiness whilst smoothing lines and wrinkles. Alternatively, use the morning after a late night for a soothing treatment to revitalise eyes and reduce the signs of fatigue. Eyes are instantly revived and refreshed.
  • DefiLift 3D Revolumising Lip Care (10ml) - This is one of Gatineau's bestselling products and is described as being a moisturising lip treatment which instantly adds long-lasting volume whilst soothing and repairing chapped lips. Using Lavender extract which smooths and strengthens the lips and Shea butter which nourishes and softens.  It is said that this is a cosmetic alternative to filling techniques. A powerful lip balm dramatically plumps and fills for a more defined appearance. After just one application, lips are smoothed, hydrated and plumped with long-lasting volume.
All of these products come packaged inside a beautiful Small Burgundy Cosmetic Bag, which I absolutely love.

The second gift within this collection is the Gatineau Perfection Ultima Smoothing Collection (£77) -  This set has a value of £199 when the items are bought separately so you can see just what amazing value it is at £77.  Described as being a collection of customer favourites including the staple Mélatogénine Futur PLUS Mask, these products once again are stored in a beautiful white cosmetic bag.
Gatineau Christmas Gift guide - Gatineau Perfection Ultima Smoothing Collection
Included within this collection is:

  • Perfection Ultime™ Retexturizing Beauty Cream (50ml) - Described as being a lightweight daily moisturiser which instantly hydrates and brightens the skin with Hyaluronic Acid and Cotton Extract, while protein-rich Caviar Extract and Tripeptide 1 work to restore skin health and luminosity. Geranium Oil protects from free-radicals and the complexion is smoothed and perfected with Wheat and Soy Proteins. 
  • Collagene Expert™ Ultimate Smoothing Serum (30ml) - Again, described as being an intensive concentrate that uses a marine based Tri-Collagen Complex to work at different levels of the skin to give an intensely hydrating, plumping and regenerative action on wrinkles Using Gatineau’s exclusive youth molecule, Mélatogénine, this targeted serum promises to treat the early signs of ageing leaving the skin feeling smooth, plumped and radiant.
  • Mélatogénine Futur PLUS™ Anti-Wrinkle Radiance Mask 75ml - Again described by Gatineau as being their most powerful anti-wrinkle formula within a luxuriously rich cream, this nourishing treatment works to leave the skin looking bright and refreshed. Again, using the brand’s patented Mélatogénine molecule, which helps to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst Marine Collagen gives a plumping effect for a younger-looking facial contour. There is also the inclusion of Lupin Extract to infuse your complexion with a healthy radiance, giving tired and fatigued skin an instant boost in just ten minutes.

There is no doubt that both of these collections are more than worth the price and what I like is that there are so many options to choose from, depending on what it is you are looking for and who you feel the products would be most suited too. Both are also a great introduction to the brand if you have no idea as to who or what they are.
