Bye Bye to looooong January and welcome to the whistle stop month of February. Well, I like to call it the month of LOVE, being a self-confessed romantic, and I love to decorate our home in a Valentines theme with trailing ivy, red votives and tea lights, jars of fairy lights with red gingham ribbon, red tulips and faux rose petals. It’s amazing how some inexpensive little pops of colour can bring cheer and a smile to a wintry house.
February is always a special month for the company as we celebrate our anniversary. 24 years ago, Mark and I started TEMPLESPA and we could never have dreamed or imagined what it would become.
With a long industry background of creating and managing brands, we finally decided it was time to move on from being nannies for other people’s businesses, to conceive our own ‘business baby’. We’d taken a year’s sabbatical to travel and re-envision our future and during this time, visited every country of The Mediterranean. We completely fell in love with everything Med… the people, culture, lifestyle, warmth, climate, architecture, landscape and of course diet and ingredients.
It then became very clear why we’d soaked ourselves in this amazing region, to inspire the basis for our new brand TEMPLESPA. Working with the very best of the best derma-scientists and artisan herbalists we were able to fuse science and Mediterranean botanicals to create incredible products with each having the ‘power of three’ which means texture, experience, and performance. To this day, this is still our imperative and for which we’re known and win awards. Textures like cashmere; transforming, sensorial, fragrant experiences; and most importantly, results with see-it-in-the-mirror performance.
This can all be captured in our brand statement “science led skincare, bathed in Mediterranean sunshine”. I love this as it’s straight to the point but marries it with a warm smile.
Watch this space, as next month I will be unveiling a whole new brand communication campaign which will revolutionise the way in which we categorise our products, ranges, treatments, and experiences. Being a wordsmith myself, I adore language, but can find myself being a tad verbose...just sharing! So to streamline, simplify and de-clutter has been an amazing exercise and quite timely 24 years on.
For February we’re pleased to launch a couple of special limited-editions. Our hero SPA WHEREVER YOU ARE Refresh, Relax & Unwind Kit is a collection of our favourites to invigorate and revive you wherever you find yourself, now with a fab sleeve and bag for Valentine’s. But it’s not exclusive to the day of love, it’ll work perfectly as a birthday gift or a treat for a mother-to-be, creating that ‘spa wherever you are’ feeling!
Next is SOFT EMBRACE Velvety Shower Mousse. This was an absolute runaway success in our seasonal collection, so we managed to get another special edition batch, perfect if you’re looking to rev up your shower experience. I completely love its delicious Mediterranean fragrance and creamy texture that transforms into a lightweight fragrant foam to leave your skin silky soft. It won’t be around for long so be sure to snap up one if this sounds like you.
So dear friends, enjoy your month, share the love, paint your house red and have an anniversary hug from us for being a brand supporter! We so appreciate you.
