      overpriced make-up remover in my opinion

      A couple of years ago I bought quite a lot of Gatineau anti-ageing skin products from QVC & have mixed opinions about their range - some were great, some OK & all very expensive in my opinion.

      I hasten to add this was well before the credit crunch & no way would I pay so much these days!

      One of the lotions I bought is suitable for all skin types (ie not necessarily for old skin like mine) & is called Serenite & is described as a 'soothing make-up remover'. The 150ml bottle cost just under £9 & is the sort of product you don't mind leaving out on show as, like all Gatineau products, it's very stylish & expensive-looking.

      The top just unscrews & you need to turn the bottle upside down to get the lotion out which is a bit awkward. Loads of items the range come in pump-dispensers but this one is the standard type.

      When you unscrew the top the smell is lovely - fresh & clean-smelling (a little like fresh laundry) & the white lotion itself is a good consistency (about the same as baby lotion I'd say).

      It's used in exactly the same way as other make-up removers - just pop a small amount on a cotton wool ball or pad & wipe away the make-up or grime - the effectiveness can be tested by examining the used pad!

      It IS gentle on the skin & it DOES remove make-up well but when I thought I used a cleanser afterwards the pad revealed that it hadn't removed all my make-up even though I'd followed Gatineau's instructions carefully & thought I'd done a thorough job.

      Apart from the fact it didn't do a particularly good job (considering the price) I don't like the way Gatineau list all their ingredients in their creams, lotions etc. Probably I wouldn't understand any of them but I would like to be able to read them if I wanted to but the print is minute - you'd need a magnifying glass to read them.

      summary
      ~
      - very expensive - I've had better results with much cheaper products.
      - smells lovely & is very gentle on the skin leaving it soft.
      - doesn't remove all the make-up however thoroughly/ carefully you use the lotion.
