Gatineau expert Michaela Taylor on Today’s Special Value


Michaela from Gatineau

Hello everyone, Michaela from Gatineau here.

I’m here to give you some tips on how to get the best out of Today's Special Value offer, the Gatineau Skincare Essentials Collection, and get gorgeous, glowing skin for autumn.

We have selected some of our most iconic products to suit just about every skin type, and the kit is packed with value so there has never been a better reason to give Gatineau a try.

Here’s what you get in the collection and some tips on how to use the products as part of your skincare regime…

Floracil Eye Make-up Remover
Gatineau 400ml Floracil Eye Make-Up Remover with Pump - 212504 Much more than just a make-up remover, Floracil is a ‘desert island’ product for many QVC presenters. The gentle formula effectively removes stubborn eye make-up without leaving an oily residue, and the added plant extract and vitamins help to soothe the delicate eye area.

How to use it:
Apply one pump to dampened cotton pad and leave on the eyes for a few seconds before gently sweeping away to remove eye make-up. For a weekly eye treat, apply the pads onto the eyes and leave for ten minutes – this is a great trick to help relieve sore, tired eyes, giving them a more refreshed appearance.

Activ Eclat Radiance Enhancing Gommage
Gatineau Activ Eclat Radiance Enhancing Gommage - 227984 By the end of the summer, our skin is in real need of exfoliation to get rid of dead skin that can give our complexion a dull appearance. This active gommage works in minutes to put the ‘zing’ back into your skin.

A cocktail of vitamins and minerals combined with gentle fruit enzymes work in minutes to help loosen dead cells, leaving you looking radiant and healthy.

How to use it:
Apply a thin layer to cleansed skin and leave for five minutes, or until the gel texture turns to liquid. The great thing about the gommage (other than the mouth-wateringly delicious smell) is that you can even use this around the eyes to help soften the look of fine lines. Then simply rinse off with water. For best results, follow with a face mask.

AquaMemory Eye Roll On
Gatineau Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Eye Roll-on - 220994 This eye serum is fast becoming one of my make-up bag staples – I can’t go anywhere without it! The seaweed-rich formula soaks seamlessly into the skin, helping to smooth out dehydration lines around the eyes.

The cooling sensation of the roller ball makes for an easy application and helps with dark circles and puffiness at the same time.

How to use it:
Apply morning and evening to clean skin. Roll the pen from the outer corner of the eyes towards the centre, paying attention to any areas of dehydration.

This product can be used on its own or under your favourite eye cream for a hydrating boost. It can even be reapplied throughout the day, over make-up, to relieve dry eyes.

Defilift Perfect Design 3D Volumising Cream
Gatineau DefiLIFT 3D Perfect Design Cream
At this time of year, when the season changes, we need to work on re-plumping and firming the skin. The amazing ‘bouncy’ texture of this cream transforms into a wonderful silky butter when applied, flooding the skin with hyaluronic acid and plant proteins. It gives fantastic all-day hydration!

Morning and/or evening, apply a tiny pea-sized amount of the cream onto your fingertips and work the product in to release the active ingredients. Use a small amount – you’ll be amazed at just how far it goes. Then pat onto the cheeks, chin and forehead before gently sweeping the rest of the product in.


So there you have it – my tips for getting the most out of our Gatineau TSV. We look forward to having you with us today for this and many more skincare delights!
