Happy Birthday Gatineau Skincare!
Gatineau was founded 85 years ago in Paris by visionary beauty therapist Madame Jeanne Gatineau, who wanted to provide groundbreaking and revolutionary skin solutions for everyone. Products that you found in the salon were often not available to the normal consumer and this is what she wanted to change : good quality and effective skincare to have in YOUR bathroom. Gatineau was the FIRST skincare brand to introduce an exfoliator (!) and also alcohol-free cleansers and toners. Madame Jeanne Gatineau was truly a pioneer for the skincare industry.
Gatineau is a skincare brand that combines natural ingredients with cutting-edge biotechnology to provide a range of anti-ageing, premium skincare. It is a skincare line that is rooted from beauty therapy, salons and professional treatments and it is still used in premium beauty salons today. I was lucky enough to be sent a few of their signature products as a celebration of their anniversary and on each product was a label of when it was created, which was so interesting and when you actually see it written down, it kind of puts in perspective how old it really is.
Some key products that you need to know about. The Aquamemory High Hydration Cream mask I have mentioned a few times including here and this is must-have hydration mask for winter. It really suits all skin types (I am combination-oily) and really infuses the skin with hyaluronic acid, reduces inflammation and leave the skin plump and glowing.
For those who want a shot of firming and anti-ageing, the Melatogenine Youth Activating Beauty Serum is my absolute go-to for when my skin needs a really active and powerful serum. This ‘super serum’ contains potent anti-oxidants, probiotics & marine collagen to leave skin luminous, protected and plumped.
Have sensitive skin but like an effective, quick, brightening mask? Then the Radiance Enhancing Gommage (est 1949!) is going to be right up your street. It uses a mild enzymatic formula to remove dead skin cells and it’s has no particles or beads so completely non-abrasive. It has a unique creamy formula that dissolves into an oil as you remove so leaves your skin both hydrated and bright.
As a celebration of their birthday, Gatineau have also launched a limited edition of ‘85th Anniversary Collections‘ : Skincare sets with beauty editor’s picks, bestsellers and the rest…also there is some great savings to be had on these!
