Eye Focus Promotion at emphasis

Eye Focus Promotion at emphasis

Helena Bezuidenhout, Gatineau’s Area Manager, will be hosting an Eye Focus Promotion at emphasis on 28 August.

Helena will bring her Hydration Measuring Machine with her. This machine accurately measures the hydration level in the skin, allowing us to offer you the most ideal treatment for your unique skin needs. 

Why Hydration
Dehydration is an enemy of the skin, affecting many people to varying degrees. Skin dehydration is the loss of water in the skin and occurs when the skin uses more moisture than it takes in. Your skin loses a large amount of water naturally every day, which constantly needs replenishing. Dehydration can cause fine lines and wrinkles, premature ageing, loss of elasticity and a feeling of tightness.

The Treatment
The Eye Focus Treatment is a 30 minute treatment. It is suitable for men and women and is ideal for clients looking to rejuvenate, relax and de-stress the eye contour area.


  • Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced
  • The eye contour is intensely hydrated
  • The eyes are revived with dark circles and puffiness reduced

While Helena is performing the Eye Focus treatment, clients will be treated to a Youthful Hands Treatment for additional pampering. The treatment is ideal for clients looking to restore softness and the youthful appearance of their hands.

Total value of the combined treatments is R380. For the promotion day only clients will be pampered at the cost of R150. Purchase two or more products on the day and the R150 is redeemable on your purchase.

The promotion will be at emphasis on the 28th August. Places are limited to 12 and advance booking is essential. Contact us to secure your booking.

Gatineau Beauty Workshop at emphasis

We are excited to announce a fun and inspiring beauty workshop at emphasis!

At the workshop you will have a first hand Gatineau experience: using, touching, feeling the product by doing a mini facial on yourself without the expense of a professional facial.  This is a group experience where we remove our make-up before  performing a mini facial on ourselves. It’s a fun, unique and exciting experience to share with friends. Those new to Gatineau and existing fans are welcome.

Scientific Skin Analysis Machine
This machine is discrete and non invasive. It simply magnifies a small portion of skin 50 times in order to analyse it. This enables us to determine the best way to uniquely treat each individual’s skin to maximise beauty and feeling good.
The workshop will be presented by Gatineau Area Manager Helena Bezuidenhout. Helena has extensive experience in the beauty industry. She worked on a cruise line as well as in a number of Spa’s and has also managed a beauty salon. Helena lectured for seven years at a private beauty college, where she was the head of the skincare department. Helena is constantly impressed with the dynamic brand Gatineau. She has been with them for a year and is absolutely loving it!

Three workshops will be held on the 28th May at emphasis. Each workshop costs R100 and runs for 3 hours. The times are as follows:

08:00 – 11:00
11:30 – 14:30
15:00 – 18:00

We look forward to welcoming you to this fun and informative experience! Places are limited and advance booking is essential. Contact us to secure your booking.
