      nice for a presen for me t but wouldn't buy again

      Some months ago (when I had some spare cash - ha!) I was seduced by a presentation on QVC featuring various skin & body lotions. Knowing that I had the 30 day no quibble money-back guarantee I decided to but the Gatineau Body Lotion with AHA for £28 plus p&p as my skin was feeling very dry & in need of some tlc.

      The product arrived a few days later & is exactly as shown in the picture. The pump action container is 400g & lasts for ages (should do at this price!).

      The lotion itself is a great consistency neither too thick nor too thin & therefore it doesn't clog up the dispenser. It's white when you see it but is absorbed straightaway into the skin & you don't have to rub it in too much.

      the smell is nice but nothing special & soon fades but I did notice an improvement in the texture of the skin within a few days & it definitelty felt more supple & moisturised.

      On the the Gatineau body lotion leaflet it's telling me 'AHAs extracted from [assion fruit provide a mild exfoliating action allowing the moisturising plant extract to penetrate more easily into your skin feeling incredibly soft, supple & silky smooth' - really??

      Well I must say that although my skin did improve I feel it would have done with most body lotions. Yes, it's a nice product & yes, it has a nice enough smell & yes, is easy to use but would I buy it again? - no, not for this price I'm afraid.

      OK - it's a salon-use product so using this at home saves pounds but I really can't justify purchasing another one at this price as cheaper ones often give me almost the same results & have a nicer smell.

      I don't really know why there's all the hype for Gatineau products - apart from the throat gel (which is superb) I've never got excited by any of their other products finding them far too expensive for the results I've had - many have been returned to QVC I have to say.

      Now then if I were to win a prize or be given a load of Gatineau products for a present that would be a different story ........!

      summary
      ~
      - a good product but, in my opinion not worth £28.
      - easy to use & good results but I think I'd get these from cheaper body lotions.
      - if you read reviews on QVC they're mixed so worth a read first if you're considering buying?
      - everyone talks about the smell which is nice enough but didn't get excited about the fragrance.
      - wouldn't buy again but would use if it was given to me!
