Gatineau Aqua Memory Moisture Replenish Concentrate Day/Night Serum *


I have been using the Gatineau Aqua Memory Moisture Replenish Concentrate Day/Night Serum for a long time now (in fact, the bottle is practically half empty already!) so I felt like it was time to give you a review! I wanted to really take my time with this product, as I know it's a little more on the pricey side, and I wanted to make sure I was giving an honest and complete review!


Firstly, I'm loving the packaging! The light blue looks oh so cute on my bathroom sink. And there's nothing chicer than French words on your skincare! While my skin isn't exactly dehydrated, it's not entirely hydrated either, so I knew a serum would be perfect for my skin type! However in saying that, the Gatineau Aqua Memory Serum is perfect and sensitive enough for all skin types! This just gives you skin's natural hydration a kick-start!


The first time I used this, I knew it was worth the price tag. You can instantly feel the quality of the product. I only use one small pump of the serum but it spreads across my face and neck with absolute ease. There's no greasy residue left over, and it absorbs into my skin almost instantly.

The scent is also so neutral, and very pleasant. I found that the scent disappeared instantly, however, so if you don't like the smell of this serum, there's no need to worry! Also, the product does come out as a light blue gel like substance, but once applied to the skin, it turns clear!

After using it, my skin felt instantly refreshed and definitely more hydrated. I even find that after using the Gatineau Aqua Memory Serum, I don't actually need to use moisturiser. (Although I of course still use SPF+ products!) 


 


After using this for some time now, I can definitely say that my skin has been loving the extra hydration! Since using it, I have actually had no facial breakouts whatsoever! Usually one or two will pop up every now and then, and while annoying as they are, I use that as an opportunity to test out acne treatments. But since using the Gatineau Aqua Memory Serum, I've had nothing but clear skin!

I've also found that my pigmentation has cleared up a bit as well. While my skin hasn't turned into the perfect skin overnight, prolonged use of this serum has certainly helped the tone and texture of my skin, and has helped keep it healthy and hydrated! I'll be really interested to see how my skin is going by the time I finish the bottle!

Overall, I'm really happy with the Gatineau Aqua Memory Moisture Replenish Concentrate Day/Night Serum. I feel that this serum has definitely helped keep my skin fresh and clear, as well as hydrated and softer! I have been using this, in conjunction with the Gatineau Aqua Memory Moisture Replenish Mask, and my skin has been loving that one too! (Expect an in-depth review to come shortly!)

I'll definitely be repurchasing both products! They will always have a place in my skincare regime from now on!

You can pick up the Gatineau Aqua Memory Serum here, or here for both the serum and mask!

--

Of course, just be mindful that one particular skin care product is not going to solve all of your skin care problems! I use this in conjunction with a cleanser, a toner and moisturising products; as well as masks every now and then! In saying that, you should all go out and read a post by Andy from the Pampered Prince on why some skin care doesn't work, and who is to blame - it's a great read and oh so relevant when talking about pricey skin care! Check out his article here.

  2. This sounds really nice! I just got the hydraluron which is a similar idea!

  3. This sounds like a great product and I agree with the French wording on a package, it makes it feel more luxurious! I wonder how this compares to Hydraluron!
