Christmas With Gatineau
So it’s that very exciting time of year again where we can finally unveil our Gatineau Christmas collections and let you enter into the magic of luxurious ‘limited edition’ premium face and body skincare. And just when I didn’t think our festive gifting could get any better Gatineau have surpassed all expectations and have literally ‘pulled it out of the bag’. In fact let me start with the bags (and high quality gift boxes) as this truly decadent gift wrapping probably deserves a blog of its own. Each of the 12 collections are presented in superior vanity bags and classy gift boxes in the delectable hues of gold, burgundy, taupe and white with of course a splash of sparkle. and are the perfect gifts to immerse you in skincare heaven!
And if it is a journey of discovery you are looking for then what better treat than our Little Luxuries Collection featuring 7 iconic products that to me, celebrate all of our most-loved skincare
and to you offer the perfect introduction to Gatineau at an affordable price. Beautifully presented in a burgundy vanity bag this clever selection of skincare showcases a complete anti-ageing daily and weekly skincare regime which can last for up to a month. It really is the perfect gift, winter getaway routine or stocking filler and will certainly keep the complexion smooth, soft and protected over the Christmas period.

Luminous, radiant and glowing skin is one of the best gifts I think you could give a friend, sister or mother this Xmas. As we head into the moisture sucking winter months there is nothing more deflating than applying make-up you were gifted only to find that is exacerbates every line, wrinkle, and other skin flaw that it is supposed to camouflage. Enter Gatineau’s Perfection Ultime Radiance Collection, a trio of indulgent products that combine high performance skincare with a fusion of colour. Take the Perfection Ultime Complexion Cream SPF 30 in shades of light, medium or dark for example – not only is this moisturiser infused with precious anti-ageing ingredients, it provides what I can only describe as a weightless ‘natural’ glowing coverage for that much sought after flawless complexion. When it is teamed up with the Perfection Ultime Miracle Eye Contour Cream which instantly adjusts to your skin tone to conceal dark circles and other imperfections and our brand-new nourishing lip balm with a flush of sheer Rose colour you have the ultimate gift experience to rediscover healthy and luminous looking skin.
No discerning beauty lover will be able to resist our body collections which are designed to condition, nourish and protect the skin during the cold harsh winter months. Gatineau’s Body Double collection featuring Defi Lift Body Oil together with AHA Body Lotion adds a supercharged step to your body care routine and gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to skin hydration. What I absolutely love is that fact that these two products are so versatile and can be used separately (AHA Body Lotion in the morning and Defi Lift Body Oil at night time) or can be blended together to create an intense super-enriched body lotion which just sinks into the skin leaving it feeling satin-soft and velvety and leaving a lingering scent of Lotus flower. With the addition of the body exfoliating brush this collection really does fall into my beauty hall of fame for being able to achieve that polished, smooth and supple skin we all strive for.

And let’s not forget our boys - whether it’s the husband, dad, brother or nephew; men are notoriously known as a tricky bunch to pick a Christmas present for. But the truth is men worry just as much about their skin as women do and although men age less quickly than women (very annoyingly) their skin still requires some TLC to counteract the effects of the day to day harmful external aggressions. Gatineau’s Aquamemory Collection is the perfect gift for ‘him ’to put under the Xmas tree along with the socks! This kit is all about improving hydration levels (a crucial component that a man’s skin lacks due to daily shaving and a poor skincare routine) and is formulated with pioneering Osmaporine™ Technology, and Marine Extracts. The Aquamemory Cream and Eye Roll-On replenish moisture levels and the lightweight cream- gel textures mean they melt into the skin leaving no residue. With the products being a subtle shade of blue and bearing an unobtrusive fresh fragrance, Aquamemory will score a big ‘thumbs up’ to our masculine counterparts where texture, colour and fragrance are top priorities. With the addition of the ‘skin saving’ Aquamemory Mask to reinforce this collection it means even men can enjoy a night of grooming in the comfort of their own home!
