Michaela from Gatineau here,
With July being Beauty Month on QVC, I wanted to give all you Gatineau fans a rundown of our top summer products. With all this lovely sunshine we are having, plus holidays abroad, air travel and the stress of the school holidays, our skin really does need some extra TLC. Here's my guide to our top summer survival products. Enjoy!
This wonder cream flew out on our launch show, and shows no sign of stopping! Our most technologically advanced moisturiser to date, this cream works on all the visible signs of ageing – lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, dehydration, lack of radiance, and more importantly for summer, those pesky brown spots and pigmentation marks. Check out the reviews for this one… absolutely brilliant! Simply apply to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area, morning and evening.
This luxuriously indulgent body oil leaves a gorgeous sheen on even the driest skin, making it a perfect accompaniment to any summer dress. It won't leave you feeling greasy or come off on your clothes, and it gives the body a beautiful fragrance of lotus flower. Simply spritz onto skin after showering and go!
I wouldn't be much of a beauty therapist if I didn't harp on about the importance of exfoliation! At the risk of sounding like a broken record, ridding the skin of dead and dulling skin cells is one of the quickest and easiest ways of achieving that perfect, almost airbrushed appearance.
Your body moisturisers with work better and go further, and any dry, rough areas will disappear, leaving you with silky skin that is begging to be touched! Keep this one in the shower, and use a 50p piece-size amount for the whole body. Massage it into the skin, working on any problem areas, before rinsing off.
The lip and hand area, like the eyes, are the first places we show signs of ageing and sun damage. This duo is incredible value and absolutely universal, no matter what age you are. The Revolumising Lip Care helps to condition and protect the delicate skin, whilst increasing circulation to the lip area, giving that immediate plumped feel.
And Gatineau's anti-ageing expertise doesn't stop with facial products – we put just as much as much effort into our body products, with this hand cream being no exception. The tube will last months and sinks straight into the skin tackling dryness and age spots in one go!
