Happy Sunday! Sunday is my favourite day of the week as it is the one day that I try to keep to myself to unwind and recharge from the previous week. Usually that involves a bit of a pamper Sunday too and a treat for my skin.
When I was last kindly sent some goodies by Temple Spa, they included a pot of their popular Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream which I was intrigued to try as I had seen a lot about it online. I have been having a very stressful time recently Sammy dad is very unwell so was very open to the prospect that a moisturiser could also help me relax.
As we all know, I am obsessed with Temple Spa’s In the Beginning Deep Cleansing Melt (read what I thought in full here) so I couldn’t wait to incorporate this cream into my pamper sessions.
As always, the packaging is slick and luxurious. It’s a weighty black pot which comes with the handy spatula that the other products have to make application more hygienic and easy.
The claim with this product is that it delivers a “good nights sleep in a jar” and I have to admit, I think it works. The cream is blended with a number of aromatherapy essential oils that you would associate with relaxation including lavender, chamomile, patchouli, frankincense and geranium. Honestly, it smells divine and it really calms the senses. I would caution that the scent is quite strong though, so if that’s not your thing, you won’t like this. Once again, like the other Temple Spa products, it delivers a real sense of a high end spa at home.
The texture is a thick cream but my skin just drinks it up so it still feels lightweight. That being said, I personally prefer to use this at night because of the relaxing scent, but it can also be used as a day cream. You can also use the product as a relaxing mask by applying a thick layer to your face, or you can massage a little into your pulse points to aid relaxation. I do love a multi use product.
As always, the ingredient list is impressive, rich in natural plant extracts and anti-oxidants. The infusion of hops aids and encourages a restful nights sleep while the antioxidants get to work with the vitamins A, E and B5 to soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin.
My skin really enjoys this product. My face drinks it up and there is no horrible oily or sticky residue left behind after application like there can be with some other rich night creams. It plumps my skin, deeply nourishes and soothes my complexion.
Temple Spa say that this cream is for all skin types though I would caution those of you who have used essential oil based skincare in the past and haven’t liked them. Personally, my skin is fine with them. I like to use this product on evenings when I want a proper pamper and relax but recently with my stress levels, I have found myself using it more and I really think it helps me relax more.
You can pick the Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream up for yourself here. It costs £40 for 50ml which I think is reasonable and comparable to other mid-high end brands.
Have you tried Temple Spa skincare products yet? If you haven’t, why on earth not?
