Review: Temple Spa Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream

When I attended the Pegasus Showcase in June I was blown away by Temple Spa – a brand I previously had no knowledge of. Their products were luxurious and unique, without being too serious. So when I found their Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream in my goodie bag I was over the moon. My battle to find the perfect night cream has been long and bumpy, and I was eager to see if Temple Spa could help me end it.

Final thoughts?

When I first opened the jar I was greeted by a soothing natural smell (with hints of lavender) – the kind that transports you to your favourite spa. The cream is very rich so when I first applied it I was worried my skin would react badly. However it soaked the cream up quickly, leaving behind supple, moisturised skin, with a lovely fragrance. The fragrance is incredibly relaxing, which makes this perfect for use at bed time. I can’t vouch for the anti-ageing benefits but I can say that my skin loves this cream. If you have greasy skin don’t worry. I used it on my oily T-Zone and it hasn’t made it any oilier (that doesn’t sound like it should be a word). Combined with the aromatherapy aspect, this is more than just your average night cream. It aids the skin, body and mind. At £38 it’s on the higher end of the price spectrum, but it’s certainly worth investing in. I know how hard it is to find a decent night cream so I will be tracking this down when I run out!
