A Roscommon mum will soon be showing off her radiant looking skin on television alongside fellow mum, TV presenter and face of Garnier UK UltraLift, Davina McCall.

Ballyleague native Geraldine Grealy (nee Murray), from the Spinney, Abbeytown, Roscommon is a mum of one, married to local hotelier Tom Grealy from the Abbey Hotel.

Geraldine partook in Garnier’s nationwide UltraLift Challenge in August of this year and can now be seen on the company’s advertisements alongside TV presenter Davina McCall as one of the thousands of women who loved the results of the Garnier Ultralift Cream.

Following the final casting stages in London, only three lucky ladies were chosen to represent the Garnier Skincare brand in the television advert.

“I was completely bowled over when I found out I would be featured on a TV ad that will air across Ireland and the UK,” said Geraldine.

“It is so surreal and I am delighted and flattered to be chosen. I had two amazing days in London. When you see these testimonial adverts on the TV you never envisage yourself being on one as you always think they are actors. I was really thrilled.”

Garnier also treated Geraldine and her husband Tom to a luxurious stay in a five star hotel in Kensington, London. For the filming of the advert Geraldine was treated to lots of pampering, grooming, choosing wardrobe, goodie bags and a hair styling consultation and makeover by a top leading London Hair and Make up Stylist.

Geraldine also got to meet TV personality Davina McCall.

“I was immediately struck by how down to earth and chatty she was when I met her at the film shoot in London. She has just recently changed her hairstyle so it took me a few minutes to realise it was the former Big Brother TV star who was sitting beside me.”

On taking the UltraLift Challenge Geraldine said, “I really would urge women who have concerns about their skin to give this product a go. My sceptical traits were put to the test when I participated in the challenge; however, the visible results have reassured me that you don’t have to spend a fortune on expensive creams. It is refreshing to come across an affordable and effective moisturising cream that actually works for your individual skin type. Garnier Ultralift really works for me, I have seen the results for myself.”

The Garnier UltraLift Challenge TV campaign commenced on air on UK channels on Monday November 5th and across Irish TV on Wednesday November 7 last, airing on RTE 1, RTE 2 and TV3 channels. The campaign will also air across a network of Sky channels.
