TSV tips from our Gatineau expert


Michaela from Gatineau Hello to all you Gatineau fans! I'm Michaela, your Gatineau guest.

Today we're delighted to present to you our latest Today’s Special Value. I'm particularly excited about this one, as we've managed to put together a fab collection of our most famous and iconic products.

You'll find some real tried-and-tested favourites in here, plus the chance to be among the first to try the long-awaited Age Benefit Day & Night Cream!

To help you get the most out of your TSV, I've put together tips on how to use the products like a true professional.

New! Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Cream
Gatineau 5 Piece Essential Skincare Collection Wow – when I got my sample of this cream I was in heaven! This is the absolute latest in cutting-edge technology when it comes to skincare. Working on the principle that the skin becomes ‘lazy’ as we get older, this cream is designed to give the skin a new lease of life.

For the discerning skincare connoisseur, Age Benefit addresses signs of ageing from wrinkles and loss of firmness to dehydration and pigmentation.

My salon tip:
This innovative cream can be applied at night to make the most of your skin’s increased receptivity. Gently warm it in your fingertips before applying to the face and neck.

Floracil Eye Make-up Remover

Gatineau 400ml Floracil Eye Make-Up Remover I’ve lost count of the times my clients have sung the praises of this product. Quite simply, it will remove virtually any eye make-up in one go, no matter how thick or stubborn.

The plant extracts soothe and hydrate, and the fluid texture leaves no irritating traces of oil. Despite being such an effective cleanser, it's gentle enough for even the most sensitive of eyes. 

My salon tip: Don’t just use this for getting your make-up off – whenever your eyes feel sore, tired or dry, apply Floracil to cotton pads and place over the eye area for ten minutes or so for a refreshing eye mask.

Melatogenine Futur PLUS Advanced Anti-ageing Cream 

Gatineau Melatogenine Futur Plus 30ml Cream Want an all-singing, all-dancing moisturiser to tackle the signs of ageing? Look no further than our most well-known product, the amazing Melatogenine Futur PLUS Cream.

The list of active ingredients in here is comprehensive to say the least – Melatogenine, Peptides, Lupin Extracts and Hyaluronic Acid plus light reflectors all work together to tackle lines, dehydration and dullness.

My salon tip: Less is more when it comes to Melatogenine. Take a small pea-sized amount of cream and gently warm it in your fingertips before applying to the face and the neck.  

Firming Throat Gel 

Gatineau Firming Throat Gel 50ml Check out the website reviews for this product and you will see just how many women rely on this fabulous serum. The super-concentrated gel contains an unbelievable 30% active plant proteins (trust me, that is a lot!) and helps the delicate skin on the neck regain a firmer appearance.

My salon tip: Squeeze out a pea-sized amount of the gel and apply gently to the neck and jaw-line, making sure you take the product down to the decollete too – the skin here needs just as much care as the neck. Use morning and night, under your usual neck cream if you prefer.

Melatogenine Futur PLUS Advanced Anti-ageing Eye Concentrate 

Gatineau Melatogenine Future Plus Advanced Anti-ageing Eye Concentrate If you only use one product around your eyes – make it this one. Containing our award-winning molecule, Melatogenine, this fabulous eye cream tackles all the problems of the eye area – wrinkles, fine lines, dehydration, dark circles and puffiness all in one go.

My salon tip: Use only half a pump for both eyes and, using your ring-finger, gently dab it around the orbital bone before oh-so-gently patting in, moving away from the inner eye.

I do hope you can join us on the 7th, as I‘m sure you will love this Today’s Special Value as much as we at Gatineau do. 

Enjoy! Michaela x

    I am so pleased with the results from the Gatineau range. I’ve only been using it for a few months now as I’ve bought the TSV with the futur plus moisturiser and the collagen serum, but it is the first range of products that I look forward to using twice a day. I’m excited to try this new TSV. But when would I put on a sun protection factor cream in my routine? I want to apply this every day, but don’t want to interfere with the effectiveness of the wonderful Gatineau products.

    Hello, Can you tell me why, oh why, did Gatineau stop making the Laser Night Concentrate…it was possibly the best product on the market today… I am so, so disappointed…

    I love Gatineau but when will we get a DEILIFT TSV ?

    I want to buy a gatineau cleanser and toner, however, I have very normal skin – no problems with dryness/oiliness/sensitivity so which should I go for? Each cleanser/toner set seems to be for a specific problem.

    I have really enjoyed watching the ‘Gatineau’ presentations today and would love to try it, however I am allergic to something called ‘Propylene Glycol’ which I know is in Gatineau cleanser (unfortunately) but I was wondering if it is also in the Melatogenine Future plus advanced eye concentrate or the Floracil eye make-up remover please?
    Many thanks

    I have very dry sensitive skin,always have had,even as a child and that wasnt yesterday. I was delighted when I found Melatogenine,the 1st one was wonderful and I know the present one is improved,I didnt think you could improve on it.Why is it I cannot use the eye lotion,or any defilift product without my skin coming out in large water blisters.I use the Force serum,fantastic.But little else.Could you advise a routine,the other product I can use is the combination cleansing cream,no toner or cleanser or any of the masks.I know this is mission impossible but if you have any suggestions I would be very grateful.
