I was sent this cream as part of the Beauty Expert VIP review panel but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I wouldn't, ordinarily, be able to spend this much on skincare so this was an amazing special treat for me. Most skincare that I use is of a more high street level and even the items I love the most tend to cause some breakouts or irritation on my skin but this cream by Gatineau was an exception, my skin loved it. I'm sure you know what I mean when I say you can tell the difference when your skin loves a product.
I wanted to make sure I trialled this for a long enough time and, so, I have used this for a number of weeks now and my skin has been so much healthier. It was great to be able to use it in the lead up to a family wedding as I always worry about my skin misbehaving at big events. I didn't need to worry when using this, though.
The claims for this are that it plumps, tightens and tones the skin and I do think it certainly goes some way towards doing that. My skin felt amazing and looked the best that it had in years whilst using this. It doesn't need a lot of tightening as I'm only just beginning to see signs of ageing but I do feel like it made a difference when it come to plumping.
Above all else I feel like it moisturised my skin incredibly well. My skin is quite combination with a tendency toward dehydration and this worked wonders for that.
If my budget ever allows I will certainly look at this cream again as it's a little slice of luxury for which my face has been incredibly grateful.

This isn't usually the type of moisturiser I'd go for, as it's quite thick, but as soon as it glides onto the skin is feels light and non-greasy. It has a lovely delicate scent, which I like as I'm not a fan of perfumed products. It definitely leaves my skin feeling moisturised and silky. As for the plumping effect I can't say I've noticed a massive difference, but I've not been using it for that long, so perhaps you need to use it longer to get the desired effect.
It's pink colour and rich texture reminds me somewhat of my mother's Oil of Olay that she swore by, but without the intense smell, so I found it quite comforting.
I was concerned that the tightening effect may leave my skin feeling taut and not hydrated, but that definitely wasn't a problem.
Overall it felt luxurious and a pleasure to use.

I have dry skin and this moisturiser has been a great addition to my skincare routine. Although I find it to be quite thick once on the skin it feels light and absorbs into the skin within seconds. No greasy feeling at all! It may be pricey but it's so worth the money!

If you appreciate a smart jar to take pride of place on your dressing table, this will not disappoint as this rich cream is contained within heavy aubergine glass topped with a silver lid. I admit I am wary of jars, what with their potential to be unhygienic, so I was disappointed but not surprised to find no spatula supplied. I keep my own as they rarely are.
The cream itself is a pretty pale pink colour with only a whisper of fragrance, a big plus if, like me, you prefer minimal perfume in facial skincare. I have combination/oily skin and was pleasantly surprised to find that, in spite of the cream's buttery texture, with the application of only a small amount (which more than sufficed) there was no heavy layer or greasy residue. On much colder days, I felt a serum was required beneath the cream to ensure my skin was fully prepared prior to exposure to cold conditions and, on this basis, I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone with dry skin.
DefiLift 3D Perfect Design is intended to add volume to surface layers (i.e. replump cells), to firm the skin and to have an immediate lifting effect. Bearing in mind that these are only temporary results, I would agree that it does indeed make skin feel plumper and firmer, positive effects which for me are still present hours after use. In turn, it also provides a good foundation for make-up. As for the lifting effect, I can't say I noticed any change but this may be because my skin does not need it.
This little purple jar is now sitting beside my mirror nestled among my daily favourites. While it may not work miracles, the fact that it makes my skin feel plump, firm and nourished for most of the day, and that it performs well beneath make-up, means I reach for it often.

Cream comes in a beautiful purple luxurious pot with silver screw on lid - cream has a light pink buttery oil texture. No strong fragrance which I prefer. You only need a small amount and when you initially apply feels v slightly oily with a slight sheen but sinks into skin v quickly leaving a matt sheen. Initially I liked the feel on the skin and was a great base for applying foundation - left my skin looking and feeling refreshed with no adverse reactions. However since using this cream now for almost four weeks I can now notice even more benefits, my skin as well as looking refreshed, hydrated and feeling soft, also looks bit more defined which is great- I am lucky as my skin is in quite good condition anyway so think anyone who wants more help will see even better results. . I would highly recommend especially for anyone who wants to achieve more definition with their skincare. I definitely will consider purchasing in the future.

Gatineau Defi Lift 3D Perfect Design has surprised me... in a good way!
The cream is like soft butter and I was initially concerned it would feel heavy on my skin. I was so wrong. You only need a tiny dot of cream to go a long way. It goes on like butter and is absorbed by my late 40s year old skin quickly (no problem applying makeup quickly after application).
In the past couple of weeks of application, I have noticed daily that my skin is getting a) firmer b) softer and overall clearer, fresher and even skin tone.
Gatineau is not a brand that I've previously been tempted to purchase as I had always thought they were for 'older' skin, would be heavier and on the more expensive side just to try it out. I was so very wrong. I'll definitely be purchasing their Defi Lift 3D Perfect Design cream when this pot runs out.
Very impressed and pleased I've been surprised by the outcome. Would totally recommend.

I've been using this cream for two weeks now and it's deffinatly doing something my skin feels tighter and firmer I'm excited to see some amazing results with this so will keep using it . I use it in the morning before makeup application, it really softens and and has helped with the dry patches on my face, the cream is quite thick but if you just break it down on your palm before applying it to the face it will melt into your skin easily. Always wait a few minutes before applying makeup. I now want the eye cream in this range to help firm under the eye.

I have been using this product morning and night for almost two weeks now and I find that my skin definitely appears more radiant.
The cream feels quite thick at first but if you warm it slightly in the palm of your hand before applying, it glides on smoothly. You don't need to apply very much at all.
After applying, I find you need to leave a few minutes longer before applying any make up, in order for the product to be absorbed. Make up really goes on smoothly afterwards.
I don't yet have many wrinkles on my face, just a few tiny lines around my mouth, which definitely appear less noticeable after application.
In the mornings my skin feels really silky. I will certainly carry on using this product.

I don't yet have many facial wrinkles, just a few tiny lines around my mouth which definitely seem to improve after application. My skin certainly appears more radiant and in the mornings, feels silky smooth.
I find that I need to leave a little more time for the moisturiser to soak in before I apply any make up, but when I do, it goes on very smoothly.
I will certainly continue to use this product.

I have used this moisturiser for 2 weeks and I have noticed a remarkable different in the tone of my skin. It is a luxurious moisturiser that melts in to the skin but does not feel heavy. It instantly plumps the skin leaving a radiant and fresh complexion. I do feel that my fine lines are superbly hydrated therefore they are erased and I can't wait to continue using so see what the results will be. I used this both morning and night and it works so well and my skin feels hydrated continually. My make up glides on over this moisturiser and because of the tone of the skin it makes my foundation look more radiant and I have received compliments saying how well I look. I would highly recommended this moisturiser and it's a great investment for my skincare routine.

Although I feel this cream is geared towards an older skin type I am still throughly impressed with it! The cream has a thick almost jelly like texture. I advise warming it between fingers before massaging it into the face. It has a lovely light and fresh smell to it. The cream melts into your skin almost instantly and doesn't leave any greasey residue or shine so it's perfect for morning or night use (I personally use it both as it feels incredible on my skin!) I currently (very luckily) don't have a lot of fine lines or wrinkles so I haven't noticed a difference in that respect but I feel the cream has definitely smoothed my skin. I will continue using this in my daily routine in a hope that it will keep all those wrinkles at bay for as long as possible! A really great cream, would definitely recommend!

This is a brilliant cream! Sinks right in and doesn't leave my skin greasy at all. My cheeks can get very dry but I tend do have an oily T-Zone - it works great on both! I scoop out a chunk of the cream - warm it with my hands and massage in - lovely!

This moisturiser is absolutely fabulous and does exactly what it says it will. I now use this religiously in my morning and night routine and have noticed a massive difference my skin is smooth to touch and the bags under my eyes have pretty much disappeared due to the tightening that has occurred. The packaging is brilliant and the product smells lovely always a plus when purchasing a moisturiser.
I have had many compliments on my skin since I have used this and I will purchase after this tub has finished as I don't think I would be able to use another moisturiser again.

Fantastic product! Really helped my fine lines and wrinkles and left my face so smooth. Great for if your looking for a light moisturiser that helps to tackle signs of ageing.

Amazing product, I feel like since using this cream my face feels plumper and firmer and I have noticed the smaller fine lines just under my eyes I was starting to get have almost gone completely (and only half way through using the pot) which is what I wanted this cream to do so altogether really pleased. I would recommend taking a before picture before you start using this so you can clearly see the difference. Will definitely buy again!

I must say that this product is lovely to use, I have had so many compliments since using Gatineau, it just makes your skin look younger and more youthful, it really does work.
