A facelift in a jar from Temple Spa

I’ve shared my feelings about Temple Spa before in my review of Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream. Basically, my first experience was a very pushy salesperson at a wedding fair several years ago which really put me off the brand, and it took me a while to try their products again. But when I did I was really impressed, and I can honestly say that nothing I’ve reviewed since has disappointed me!
Today I’m reviewing Temple Spa Trufflesque, an Ultra Hydration & Radiance Masque for the face. Trufflesque aims to give hydration and radiance to the skin, and plumps to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a luxury mask suitable for all skin types, particularly dry or dull skin, and it helps to rejuvenate tired skin too. The impressive list of ingredients includes black truffles, gold and silk peptides, but unfortunately these expensive additives contribute to Trufflesque’s slightly expensive price tag.
The first thing that strikes me about this product is the amazing packaging. All Temple Spa products have really amazing, premium packaging, and I feel that they add to the feeling that you are about to use something really special on your skin. The dark glass jar has a gold lid and it is nestled in a gold and chocolate brown box with the most amazingly cute mask brush slotted in too.
The mask itself is gold and it shimmers so prettily, if you look closely it’s almost as if you can see the particles of real gold! To apply you just paint the golden mask onto your face with the cute little brush (it makes applying the mask so easy) then leave for 15-20 minutes. The mask doesn’t dry completely, it stays a little bit tacky to the touch, and I find that it makes my skin tingle quite a bit. For extra benefits you can also then massage the mask into your skin for around 2 minutes, before removing with a damp muslin cloth or flannel.
The results of Temple Spa Trufflesque are quite amazing, once the mask is removed the face actually looks lifted – cheeks and jawline look firmer and I specifically noticed that my usually dry forehead looked plump and hydrated. Trufflesque is a mini facelift in a jar! The first time I used Trufflesque I only applied it to one side of my face and I could see a definite difference between the two sides after removing it. Of course the facelift effects don’t last forever, but they do last up to 24 hours so I would recommend using Trufflesque before a big event, maybe a night out, wedding or party. I have a few friends who have tried Trufflesque at a Temple Spa party and they were all really impressed with it too.
Trufflesque is a little bit pricey at £50, but the 75ml pot will last quite a while especially if you just use it for special occasions. You can order Trufflesque with FREE delivery from the Temple Spa website or from your local Temple Spa consultant. In my opinion this is one of the few skincare products that I’ve tried that actually lives up to its ‘facelift claims’, and while it doesn’t work as well as surgery it definitely has a short-term lifting effect on the skin.
