One Saturday afternoon, about 8 weeks ago my partner came home with a huge box and announced that she had just discovered Gatineau. “What do you mean?” I replied. “You’ve eaten chocolate cake before!”
“GATINEAU! Not Gateaux!” She shrieked back. “It’s French!”
“Yeah! Well so is gateaux.” I retorted. “But I’ve never seen one come in a box as big as that!”
Daily Skincare Routine
As it turned out she had just discovered a new skincare range from Gatineau. One of her beautician girlfriends had recommended the brand to her. Not the type of person to do things by half she went out and purchased the biggest box of their cosmetics she could get her hands on. She proceeded to unpack it right there in the kitchen whilst passionately extolling the virtues of each and every product. To be honest, it was nearly 3 pm and the football was about to start, so I possibly did not give her the attention she craved.
Looking back at that scene now though, she definitely changed from that day onwards. Her daily skincare routine since has involved all her favourite Gatineau beauty products. Each night before she goes to bed and in the morning when she wakes up, she uses something called Collagene Expert – Ultimate Smoothing Serum. I have no real idea what this does, but I am guessing there is some sort of clue in the name.
Perfection Ultime Nourishing Lip Balm Trio
If I am absolutely honest my favourite Gatineau product has to be Perfection Ultime Nourishing Lip Balm – Rouge. This particular lipstick certainly encourages me to take her out more often as she always looks sensational when she puts it on.
My wife’s beautician girlfriend recommends Peeling Expert – Pro-radiance Anti-Ageing Gommage 75ml.
Gatineau has done one very important thing for our relationship though. It has made choosing a gift for birthdays and anniversaries much easier. Next month is her birthday and to celebrate I have pre-ordered the Perfection Ultime Nourishing Lip Balm Trio. A delicate wash of Rose, Café and Rouge lip balms. Guaranteed to brighten and gives lips of any skin tone a just kissed flush. Now, I just need to find a good restaurant in our area!
