Gatineau collection Here are my tips and salon secrets for you to get the most out of this amazing TSV… I just know you're going to love them!

Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Eye Roll On

One of the perks of my job is that I get to test the latest products before they go to air (a hard job, but someone's got to do it!) and I absolutely love this one! The serum texture sinks effortlessly into the delicate skin around the eye, and the roller ball gives a flawless application. Containing hydrating seaweed extracts, plus the latest in Aquaporine technology, this eye product tackles dehydration lines and dark circles in one go.

How to use it:
Every morning and/or evening, after you have cleansed and toned the skin, simply use the roller ball to apply the serum, starting from the outer corner of the eye working in. It's really that simple!

My salon tip
This product can be used as an eye serum, underneath your existing eye cream. If you already love Melatogenine Futur Plus Eye Cream (222840), you can slot this into your regime by using the Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Eye Roll on during the day and Melatogenine at night.

Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Concentrate

The science that goes in to the new Age Benefit range is quite simply mind-blowing, and this serum is no exception. Using growth factor technology, plus a plethora of other anti-ageing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, artichoke extract, vitamins and minerals, this serum is designed to fight ageing at the cause. Tackling lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, dehydration, pigmentation AND lack of radiance, this ultra-concentrated booster serum will leave you with skin that is the envy of everyone!

How to use it:
Every morning and/or evening, after you have cleansed and toned the skin, apply two pumps of product to the face and the neck. Follow with the Melatogenine Futur Plus Day and Night Cream.

My salon tip
Apply the serum all the way down to the décolleté to tackle those brown spots and dehydration lines. You'll be itching to put on that summer dress in no time!

Melatogenine Futur Plus Advanced Anti-ageing Day and Night Cream

Gatineau's most famous anti-ageing molecule is celebrating its 10 year anniversary and still going strong! This moisturiser is fantastic at reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, whilst giving the skin unbeatable hydration and radiance. Containing marine collagen, peptides, light reflectors and hyaluronic acid, it is a perfect complement to the Age Benefit Regenerating Serum.

How to use it:
Take the tiniest amount, smaller than a pea size, and apply over the Age Benefit Regenerating Serum morning and/or evening.

My salon tip
This cream looks heavy, but by warming it in between your fingertips before applying, you'll see that a little really does a long way.

So there you have it – my guide to using Today's Special Value. Give it a go…your skin will love you for it!

    Hi Michaela,
    I recieved the Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Eye Roll in my TSV, but I am wondering if I have received a faulty one. The cream doesn’t come out easily, I have to press really hard on the rollerball, which defeats the object of treating the eye area gently. So now I have decided that the only practical way of using it is to press harder on the back of my hand to dispense the cream and then apply manually to my eyes, which rather defeats the object and is very disappointing.
    I wonder if you could possibly tell me if this product should be like this or whether there is a fault with it?
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,
