TEMPLESPA are a British brand I feel I have a lot in common with as it was all inspired by the Mediterranean ... and I am a Brit, living in the Med. 

In a nutshell, Templespa is your 'Spa-to-Go' beauty brand. If you have been with me some time, you may already know that I love a Spa brand because you just know it will fill you with all the comfort and pampering of a Spa, without being around strangers in your dressing gown. I have been meaning to mention more about them here as they are a wonderful brand who kindly sent over some of their products a while back. I personally think they are a bit of a hidden gem. So in case, you don't know anything about them, here is a little background to set the picture. 

Templespa products

TEMPLESPA; a little background ...

TEMPLESPA is a British brand founded by Liz and Mark Warom in West Sussex. Their story began in the Mediterranean 21 years ago where they were inspired by the warmth, vibrancy and nutritious, indigenous ingredients and the love of living life to the full. They created a skincare line and a whole wellbeing experience of a TEMPLESPA treatment. Their skincare mission is to look the best version of yourself, not perfect, just the best temple. They have partnered up with some of the most prestigious luxury hotel spas in the UK to deliver a real experience. Sound good?⁣

They offer a catalogue of products with a wide range of Skincare, Bath & Body, Home, Gifts etc and their formulas are cruelty-free, botanical and target skin & soul health, with influence from the Mediterranean combined with a technical-scientific edge that has created award-winning products.

Templespa products

I tried some of their bestsellers in skincare and body care which is a good place to start in getting to know a brand like this and I wanted to feedback on those that really did it for me. Living in the Mediterranean myself, I felt the brand is a great fit as I definitely feel in tune with them and what they have created. 

There are a few other Spa themed brands whom I adore that have really amazing cleansing balms (ie Elemis, Espa, Emma Hardie) and TempleSpa are joining that party with their cleanser of dreams ...

Templespa cleansing melt balm

Templespa cleansing melt balm

TEMPLE SPA Deep Cleansing Melt | £32 linked here

This is where it all started for me being the first product I ever tried from Templespa and most possibly my favourite. I have featured and spoken about it before because from the moment I opened it, it was love. I love a Cleansing Balm and this one is beautiful and also unique. Firstly the aromatherapy, spa scent will grab a hold of you then the result will keep you hooked. This gorgeous, soft, buttery balm literally melts away makeup and daily build-up with ease to leave your skin with a 'just had a facial' feel and what makes this one very unique compared to others is that it has a grainy texture to give an exfoliating/cleansing action. The grains are extremely gentle and once warmed in your hands almost disappear, mentioned this to you for even the most sensitive skins

The balm is formulated with Mediterranean ingredients such as olive, calendula, basil, clary so you can imagine just how amazing it smells and most importantly, leaves your skin feeling clean, hydrated, dewy and glowing. If you love cleansing balms like I do then make this your next try, you won't regret it, especially being a multi-tasker. 

You can also purchase 'Take it Off' pack of x 2 muslin cloth's that work really well and I highly recommend using with this cleanser (linked here).

Templespa Glowcolic

These next two products are your glowgetters. For me, gentle acids are must-have in my routine as my skin responds well; they are the most gentle way of exfoliating the skin and ensure that you keep a youthful glow. Lacklustre skins will definitely be interested in these next two products .... 

Templespa Glowcolic 

TEMPLESPA GLOWCOLIC Glycolic Acid Toner | £20 linked here

This is an exfoliating toner with glycolic acid, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to reveal smooth and glowing skin. The toner aims to smooth, nourish and balance your skin’s complexion. Mediterranean extracts of grape, apple, lemon and orange, rich in natural acids and vitamin c, combined with glycolic, mandelic and lactic acids to provide a refreshing formulation that gently lifts away dead skin cells and impurities to renew and nourish, evening out the skin’s surface for a brighter, healthier-looking complexion that sings with radiance.

This is super effective but in a gentle way and makes your skin feel really fresh and awake. That cocktail of ingredients and acids just screams glowing skin! The vibrant orange colour really drew me in I won't lie! Toners like this really are such an easy step to achieving better skin overall and I for one cannot miss them out of my routine. I use it a few times a week alongside other facial misting toners and it works perfectly for my skin. I really notice my hydration levels increase when I add this into my routine. I also love the bottle as it makes application really easy! This is a great place to start if you are looking to help improve your complexion and a product like this, slots very easily into any routine. 

Templespa Glowcolic  oxygen peel

TEMPLESPA MOST REVEALING, Glowing Skin Oxygen Peel with Glycolic Acid | £40 linked here

This oxygenating bubble peel powerfully transforms your complexion from lacklustre to positively glowing giving smoother, brighter skin. The highly effective formula is powered by vitamin C and a cocktail of glycolic, malic, lactic, citric and hydroxy acids. Sodium hyaluronate hydrates and cushions the skin while it foams and fizzes, lifting away dead skin cells and decongesting debris from the pores. Botanical extracts of apple, kiwi and chamomile soothe, vitamins A & E nourish and Mediterranean oils of sweet orange & bergamot work together to reveal unbelievably smooth, bright and radiant skin.

I love treatments such as this because they are the kind of thing you can do in a short time as not everybody has the time to mask. Treatments that bubble and fizz like this are slightly ticklish on the skin but if you have used them before you know how immediate the effects are! That fantastic cocktail of ingredients once again means business as they are some serious glow busters waiting to get to work. Anyone that feels this skin is just a bit dull and needs a boost of energy, hydration and glow then this is the one for you. Your skin will be smoother, re-energised and refreshed!

Now to add more hydration ... are you a truffle fan???

Templespa truffle range

Templespa truffle range

TEMPLESPA TRUFFLE DE-LIGHT Hydra-Gel Moisturiser £90 | linked here

A very lightweight, hydra-gel designed to deliver hydration and nourishment, while feeling weightless on the skin. Rich in amino acids, minerals and skin-valuable sugars, it helps to tone, balance and moisturise your complexion. Truffle, rose quartz and Happybelle-PE™ help to brighten dull, lacklustre skin, providing a healthy-looking radiant glow. Botanical caviar & kombucha hydrate and firm the skin and if that’s not enough, extracts of gold & champagne, strawberry seed oil & prickly pear provide an antioxidant cocktail of perfecting luxury ingredients.

I am a truffle addict; I have the luxury of living in the Mediterranean where truffles (especially truffle pasta) are just a must-have but never have I had it in my moisturiser so I am guessing that this was the inspiration behind the range perhaps! I think this is definitely why I was drawn to this one! This really did surprise me as I wasn't sure what to expect but this is such a lovely summer moisturiser that acts as a really lovely refreshing drink for your skin. Normal/combination skins that tend to be more oily in summer will definitely appreciate this one. I would suit the intense version more being normal/dry/dehydrated but love the option to have this one for the really hot months. It could even be layered under another moisturiser or oil. The ingredient lineup itself is a luxury and smells very fresh and lovely (not of truffle pasta) and will most certainly give you a fresh, healthy-looking complexion. I love that there is a whole truffle range as I really want to delve into it more.

Now on to some treats for the body ... 

Templespa bath/shower

TEMPLESPA LA LA LAGOON Aromatherapy Bath/Shower Wash | £12  linked here

A body wash & shower gel formulated with a luxury spa fragrance of peppermint, anise, rosewood and patchouli, along with skin conditioning aloe vera to cleanse, soften and chase away any tiredness, whilst leaving your skin beautifully fragrant. 

I love body care and the fact that Templespa has this wonderful body care range adds to the whole sense of what their brand is about. This Bath/Shower Gel really does encapsulate a sense of the Mediterranean and is just such a lovely luxury product to wash with. The creamy lather smells incredible and really does capture my outdoors! I was really surprised at how affordable this is which made me think it would make for a perfect gift as well as a treat. Why shouldn't you indulge with your body care and make yourself feel good? Do it, because the next product will definitely tempt you to do just that ... 

Templespa Duvet body cream

TEMPLESPA DUVET Hydrating Body Cream | £30 linked here

This truly luxurious, aromatherapy, hydrating body cream is designed to wrap the body with hydrating and firming ingredients, leaving your skin smooth, toned and gorgeously fragranced. It has a silky, light formula that acts as a comfort blanket of moisture. Rich in omega oils, olive, guarana, fig, pomegranate, liquorice, vitamin E and relaxing Mediterranean essential oils of lavender, frankincense, myrrh, chamomile and patchouli, we call this your skin’s DUVET – skin-hugging aromatherapy and skincare in one.

Well excuse the pun but this really is the creme de la creme of what I have been trying from Templespa. I feel like they got inside my head and made my dreams come true with this body cream. The notes within it are truly magical and is the perfect cocktail before bedtime because the smell of this on your skin will instantly relax you as well as hydrate and soothe your skin. The cream absorbs really beautifully into the body and will you smell incredible as you get into clean bedsheets. If you really want to treat yourself then make sure you try this one out because you will be hooked, don't blame me, but you will! 

Templespa Bodycare

The bright colours of the product, the scents, the ingredients, the spa treatments  .... this is a brand that has encapsulated what they set out to do. The price point is good for a luxury brand and the packaging is simple, clean-cut and non-fussy. I love the mix of skincare and body care with it all feeling as luxurious as each other. Check out the full website here.

I feel like this brand is one of those secrets where if you know you know, but if you don't then you need to. Next on my wishlist is a Templespa treatment - because I can imagine just how lovely that would be!
