When I first received this product I chucked it in the back of a drawer and almost forgot about it. I bought it as part of a set and at 30, didn't think I had a problem with the skin on my neck. It wasn't until a few months later that I decided to give it a go and I haven't looked back since.
It has a strange texture and a yellow hue to it but don't let that put you off! This really is anti-ageing skincare at its best. From the moment you apply it you can feel a tightening effect on the neck area and the creases just seem to relax giving a more youthful appearance. You can actually see and feel the difference as the skin is smoother than before the gel is applied. The smell is pleasant but some may find it overpowering.
It is a pricey item for a neck cream but it is well worth investing in as a little goes a long way - the key is not to apply too much. I am hoping that since I started using it earlier than I needed to I will be able to put off the dreaded turkey neck look for as long as possible!!
The first thing I will say about this is that is expensive and the tubes do seem to be very small but a little goes a very long way!
My introduction to the Gatineau range was when I was given a small travel size set of three products by Mom. At first I was a bit miffed becaause it is marketed as an anti aging product and I was only 35! I didnt think I needed it but obviously Mom did!
AS I say, when I first tried it Ididnt think that my neck/decollete area looked dry or in need of nourishment,but even after the first use I was surprised at the difference. My neck did feel smoother than before and I found that the faint creases across my throat had filled out. I wont say it was miraculous because it wasnt bad before hand, but it was definatley noticable in terms of the texture of my skin. I have been using it now for the last 9 years and I rate it highly! I think the benefit to me is that I used it almost before I needed to (if you see what I mean), and so my skin did not have a chance to start to dry out and age.
The product is in the form of a gel which is heavier than a serum but not as heavy as a cream, so it doesnt drag my skin down. I use it only at night and smooth it in an upwards motion along my throat towards the jawline. It sinks in almost straight away and doesnt feel sticky.
As I said at the start of the review- it is expensive (I get mine from QVC) but it is economical as a little goes a long way!
Gatineau firming throat gel is something I don't like to be without. From time to time I do try other neck creams, but I can definitely feel the difference.
The Gatineau throat gel honestly does leave my skin feeling very smooth indeed, and I know this sounds very silly, but at 63 years of age, I am rather proud of my neck compared to my friends of similar ages. My neck has no sagging, few deep lines at all and not that many fine lines. I apply morning and night to my jaw line and neck. The gel very quickly gets absorbed into the skin, leaving no greasy residue.
Using my moisturiser on my neck does not get the same result at all. This gel really does firm up the skin and leaves it soft and smooth to the touch.
I know this product is not cheap, but bargains can be found. QVC sell it and they often have it combined with other products at very good prices.
One of Gatineau´s best! OK ladies... if you are like me and thought your neck would NEVER look "like that", i.e. lined, similar skin to the sunday roast bird... and then it started. This is the product for you! A lightweight gel which you apply with UPWARD motions from the bust (this depends on you sagging level, or your economic level!) all the way up to the chin, covering entire throat from front to back. It is extremely pleasant to use, cooling and firming which you can feel working a few minutes after application. The gel has a pleasant, fresh smell and is absorbed really quickly. It is a "serum" but specifically for the neck and decollete area. Always remember to apply your normal day-night neck cream on top and always that SPF during the day. It is not cheap, but you only use very little, plus deals can be found if you hunt around. Gatineau also supplies a "loyalty" points programme with their products and you can save up points and get free products - but it does take a lot of products! I have tried many neck products, and this is definately my favorite.
this gatineau product is fantastic -
smells gorgeous & as soon as you put it on the neck you can feel a pleasant firning sensation which lasts for a few hours
it's not cheap but this would be my desert island product.
I almost have a double chin & this firming product really works - I was sceptical but it really does.
I'm not overkeen on all agtineau products - I do have to shop around for products as I don't have much £ to spend on myself but this was a def. investment & I've never found another product like it.
It goes a long way - I bought some in January & still only one third of the way through tho' I use it everyday
I don't use perfume during the day now as it does have a gorgeous fresh l0ng-lasting fragance which other people have noted (freshly-showered smell which isn't overpowering)
so.... having temporarily reduced the lines etc on my neck & smelling fresh as a daisy everyday I'd def recommend forking out 4 this product - better still get someone to buy it for you!
