Gatineau was founded in 1932 by acclaimed Parisian skincare expert Jeanne Gatineau. The brand combines natural ingredients with cutting edge bio-technology to create highly effective skincare that delivers visible and lasting results.
I have been a fan of Gatineau Perfection Ultime range specially the retexturizing cream which I shared on my blog here. Gatineau has just added another product to its much-loved Perfection
Ultime™ collection, with the launch of the Radiance Energizing Eye Concentrate | £55 for 15 ml. I (along with some other testers) received lab samples before product went into production few months ago and used the samples for a while. I was lucky to get my hands on the full size product to test a little longer before the product release which gave me an opportunity to share my thoughts in depth.
The eye concentrate is designed to revitalise the eye area, reduce puffiness and dark circles and help to smooth fine lines. Featuring a lightweight consistency, this peeper perfector instantly absorbs into the skin to leave the eye area silky smooth and instantly refreshed. The impressive formula includes Horse Chestnut Seed Extract and Yeast Extract that work together to boost circulation, smooth lines and reduce inflammation. It also provides long lasting hydration, helping to refresh and soothe tired eyes.
The serum comes in a white opaque bottle with a pump packaging making it easier to dispense product without any wastage.
