Temple Spa Trufflesque Ultra Hydration and Radiance Masque


Remember that scene in Goldfinger where Shirley Eaton was entirely painted in gold? Basically, this is the face version of that, but with really very impressive beauty benefits. (That's unsurprising, being Temple Spa.)

It is also SO fun to use! The formula is really and truly golden, and you smooth it generously onto the face with the accompanying brush.

The list of ingredients couldn’t be more luxurious: gold pearlescent pigment, gold and silk ‘actives’ (to protect against oxidative stress), diamond illuminating powder (a soft-focus powder which also helps ‘lift’ dull skin), lemon tree honey, black truffles (a bit of a signature Temple Spa ingredient), strawberry extract, a Champagne extract (also chosen for its antioxidant properties), along with skin-plumping hyaluronic acid.

You leave it on the skin for 15-20 minutes or so, and then really massage it into skin, which further activates some of the ingredients, we’re told. Before you whisk it away – with a muslin cloth or a flannel –DO have a look at yourself in the mirror, before, during and after!

It’s quite a golden moment.
