Michaela has worked in the skincare industry for 18 years, as a beauty therapist and later a trainer. Gatineau was one of the first brands she used in the salon, and although her career has taken her all over the world with many different brands over the years, she has always come back to her favourite!
Michaela has been so lucky to see first-hand all the fantastic results her clients and therapists see on their skin after using Gatineau - for her, those results are unbeatable! Her aim is to educate everyone at home about how to treat their skin as a professional therapist would, by educating them in the same way she would when she is training therapists.

What is your favourite food?
Anything seafood!! In fact, anything that lives in the water!
Perfection Ultime Miracle Eye Contour by a mile!
"Target your skincare based on how your skin is feeling that day"
Favourite holiday Location?
Mauritius has been my favourite so far but I have a soft spot for the Caribbean as I used to live there in my fancy-free days. Now I have a family, we tend to do UK based trips and my favourite places are Dorset and Devon. We take the kids a couple of times a year and they absolutely love it.
Favourite thing to do at the weekend?
Family time is so important to me and we try to spend the weekends together. My husband loves a country pub, so our outings always involve a trip to the seaside or a walk by the river, followed by a pint in a lovely cosy pub. He even checks the map before we leave to make sure there is a pub on the route 😆.
What's The one piece of skincare advice you would give ?
Remember to exfoliate!!

Michaela's RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS
Here are Michaela's loved products...
PERFECTION ULTIME™ DAILY DEFENCE SHIELD SPF50+ PA+++
The warmth of the sun’s rays might not have quite reached us yet but just because the sun is hiding behind the clouds it doesn’t mean you should forgo your SPF!
BRAND-NEW THÉRAPIE CORPS™ EXFOLIATING BODY POLISH 200ML
An effective yet gentle body exfoliator is a rare breed with many on the market being harsh and over scratchy, yet if you get the right product there is something quite satisfying and fulfilling about using a mechanical (aka granular) exfoliator over the body.
For those not in the beauty know, the very word ‘acid’ is enough to trigger alarming thoughts when it comes to skincare ingredients.
