This Christmas Gatineau are blessing us with over ten Christmas gift sets and I was fortunate enough to be invited to try out two of them. The first, and perhaps my favourite is the Little Luxuries Collection.
Each of the seven staple products are encased in white and grey packaging, stamped with the signature Gatineau logo and labelled with a subtle silvery typeface. Wrapped in gorgeous Gatineau paper and housed in a baby-pink sparkly case, this gift set includes every skincare essential and makes for the perfect Christmas gift.
Often when gift sets have a large number of products in them, the products tend to be so small that it’s hard to feel the full effects of them. This, however, is not the case with the Little Luxuries Collection. Each sample ranges from 15ml to 50ml meaning there’s enough of each cosmetic for each one to be fully appreciated. Gift sets also make an ideal gift when you’re unsure of what to buy. Since there are multiple products, it’s likely the user will take to a few especially well, which will end up taking up a permanent residency in their makeup bag.
The collection is small enough to pop in your overnight bag, it has everything you’ll need to carry out your night-time skincare routine, and all samples are under 100ml so you can even take them in your hand luggage, making it the perfect gift for a jet setter.
I’ve listed each of the products below and popped the link in the title (underlined) for the ones which are available to purchase in full size individually.
Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover 50ml
Removes eye make-up easily and quickly without leaving an oily residue on the skin. Although it smells potent, it’s a really gentle product which works on even the toughest mascaras.
Apply a thick layer to skin and leave on for ten minutes. Either dab off the excess or leave overnight for an intense moisture boost.
Refreshing Cleansing Cream 50ml
Apply to damp skin on your face and neck and rub in circular motions until the entire face is covered, then rinse off with more water to leave your skin feeling fresh, clean and oil-free.
On application these eye pads give off a cooling sensation which feels so soothing on the delicate under-eye skin. After removing the pads and wiping away excess gel, eye contour feels nourished, soft and soothed.
This thick hydrating gel moisturises lips and leaves them looking glossy and plumped. Gently tingling as it works you can feel it reaching the innermost dry patches.
This unique product glides on to dry skin and smells so luxurious. Once the product has spread evenly over the skin and left a tacky residue, rinse off with water to refresh and awake skin. It’s the first exfoliator I’ve used without beads and the only one which isn’t too harsh for my skin.
Advanced Rejuvinating Cream 15ml
This ultra-thick moisturiser makes for the perfect night cream, providing a boost to any dull/dry skin.
Described as the ideal way to discover Gatineau, the Little Luxuries Collection offers everything you could wish for in a Christmas gift set and more. My favourites from the collection are the gentle eye makeup remover, revolumising lip care and the radiance enhancing gommage. As soon as I run out of each of them, I’ll be repurchasing them in full-size and they’ll be occupying a permanent slot in my personal skincare collection. Thank you Gatineau for my favourite Christmas gift set yet.
