We were lucky enough to receive a visit from Gatineau here at HQ recently. We had product training and learnt all about their fantastic range of skincare products.  It’s great when our brands visit us – we receive excellent training to increase our product knowledge, equipping us with a broad understanding of what they can do for your skin – and we also get the opportunity to see the products and test them for ourselves (which always goes down well here in the office as we love to try out new beauty products!).

So who are Gatineau? Gatineau is a leading French professional brand which owes its success to a wide range of high performance products based on the latest skincare technology. By combining the best of all sources from the most effective botanical extracts to the latest cutting-edge biotechnology, Gatineau use state of the art formulas to deliver highly visible results.  They offer a full range of skincare products for all age groups and skin types so there is something to suit everybody.

They also have a brilliant body care range which includes Gatineau Tan Accelerating Lotion – I am really looking forward to trying it after hearing great reviews and I love to try any products that will help me obtain a tan!

Read more about why Bath & Unwind HQ love GatineauAfter a morning of extensive product training, Gatineau kindly gave each of us a Gatineau Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Mask and a Gatineau Floracil Eye Makeup Remover to try!

The Gatineau Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Mask was just what I needed as my skin was feeling very dehydrated after a recent trip to sunny Spain. The cooling nature of the gel made it comfortable and easy to apply and felt like it was instantly quenching my dry skin. I simply applied a thick layer on my face and neck and relaxed for 10 minutes whilst the mask did its work! You can then remove any excess with warm water or wet cotton wool, although on my first application my skin was so thirsty there was not much to remove! Once removed I noticed my skin was feeling ‘less tight’ that it had before and was instantly hydrated.

I am so pleased with the results that I plan to use the mask 2-3 times a week until my skin has fully recovered. It’s handy for me to use weekly as I have dry skin – but it’s also suitable for all skin types and works wonders on skin that has suffered stress (wind, sun, pollution, difference in temperature etc.), or even just if your skin feels like it needs a bit of a moisture hit.

Gatineau Floracil Eye Makeup Remover is part of the Gatineau cleansing collection and was also gratefully received! With its extracts of chamomile and cornflower it’s wonderfully cooling and refreshing, great for people with sensitive eyes and hayfever sufferers, as it is non-irritating and very gentle. I have been using this on a daily basis to remove my eye makeup, and it does so smoothly and efficiently even when I wear slightly heavier makeup on a night out – goodbye stubborn mascara!

Top tip – For an extra soothing treat keep your Floracil Eye Makeup remover in the fridge for a cool, refreshing cleanse at the end of your day. Like this? Visit our extensive range of Gatineau products at Bath & Unwind today.
