Quench that skin with Gatineau... and feel all Frenchy and chic while you do so!
Who is Gatineau?
Gatineau Paris, are the leading French skin care brand, that owes its success to a wide range of high performance products based on proven technology. Founded by Frenchwoman Madame Jeanne Gatineau, an ardent beauty devotee, the Gatineau brand was born in Paris in 1937, with the collaboration of doctors and dermatologists of the time. The result was the first line of Madame Gatineau's skincare products. By 1950 the first Jeanne Gatineau Beauty School was opened, where Jeanne Gatineau shared her wealth of knowledge and the unique Gatineau techniques.
Many of the Gatineau products were far ahead of their time; Gatineau was the first skincare house to develop exfoliants and slimming creams and the first to discover and put to use the benefits of various antioxidants in skincare, such as green tea, andvitamins A, E and F - today, you would be hard pressed to find skincare that doesn't use these properties and ingredients!
Now acknowledged by industry professionals for its expertise and innovative, groundbreaking skincare methods, Gatineau Paris is always at the leading edge of technology!
What is the Gatineau range?
The Gatineau range encompasses almost every skin care need imaginable! The range includes cleansers, toners, exfoliants and scrubs, masks, day and night care, serums, body care, sun care and more! We love the range of anti-aging products though, with the Mélatogénine Force Collagene one of bb's top picks. The “Force Collagene” technology in this moisturising product helps to stimulate the strength, vitality and longevity of collagen fibers in the skin.
I am also keen to get my hands on the Mélatogénine Pure Focus Anti Wrinkle-Pen to use in conjunction with the Mélatogénine Force Collagene. Talk about a wrinkle fighting wonder duo!
Our product pick?
Our top Gatineau product pick of the moment would have to be the Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Cream. This dense cream actually has a lovely translucent shade, and a subtle floral scent to match, which makes us love applying it to our skin. The main drawcard though? This amazing cream maximuses skin's ability to retain its own moisture! Both adding moisture and retaining it? Who said winter meant dry skin?
Why we love Gatineau
bb only endorses skincare to be trusted and Gatineau is the epitomy of trustworthy beauty. Their long steeped traditions contribute to the unwavering support Gatineau fans show the brand. Yet traditionally Gatineau have been ground breakers in skincare technologies. A culture of innovation combined with historically beneficial results have got us hooked! In short, we trust Gatineau and find it works. Win!
