As many of you know here at TEMPLESPA, we have been celebrating our 20th Anniversary this year and what a year it has been, not quite how anyone could have predicted. We’ve been lucky enough to experience some really fantastic and, at times, unexpected success and recognition over the past months.

I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on some of our highlights, one in particular could not have come in a more fitting year. There’s no better way to celebrate our 20th Birthday than by receiving the accolade of BEST LUXURY SKINCARE BRAND 2020 and BEST BEAUTY BRAND from the Global Makeup Awards. As the leading cosmetics and makeup awards globally, these awards showcase the best in makeup and beauty looking at the best of new launches in the UK, USA and Scandinavia.

This award means so much to us as over 350 brands are reviewed and judged and to be awarded Gold above such fierce competition is amazing recognition of what has been 20 years of hard, passionate and innovative work.

We are thrilled that we can also celebrate a further six awards, which brings our total award wins for 2020 to 25 and we’re only halfway through the year!

Among these we were super excited to see our latest new innovation, EYE WILL SURIVIVE multiple effect serum-complex, treatment & eye mask patches. Somewhat of a newbie in the TEMPLESPA treasure chest, EYE WILL SURVIVE is now a Gold medal winner! This 20 minute life saver is your secret weapon for tired, overworked eyes prone to dark circles, puffiness, dryness and wrinkles. The seriously results-driven eye mask patches work to brighten and visibly firm the eye area with a very clever serum-mask-concentrate. A perfect pick-me-up product that you’ll be reaching for time and again.

Best night cream has been awarded to the TEMPLESPA darling; REPOSE, my personal favourite product, one that encapsulates all that TEMPLESPA is all about. One to ease and pamper all the senses, calming the soul, comforting and nourishing the skin and working towards your rest and wellbeing experience. REPOSE is our Aromatherapy Relaxing Night Cream, otherwise known as a good nights sleep in a jar. The cashmere texture glides on skin and is rich in natural plant extracts, anti-oxidants and a fusion of relaxing essential oils to leave your complexion ultra-smooth, moisturised and settled, whilst working to calm and aid relaxation. As a night cream it brings ultimate comfort and hydration and, once part of your night-time ritual, you’ll never want to be without it.

The recipient of several awards recently is our SPF30 moisturiser, LIFE DEFENCE. Now I know you love this as much as I do as we can’t seem to make enough it these past few months at the rate it’s leaving our warehouse! Not only does it offer brilliant protection during those lovely sunny days, it’s blue light protection from digital screen time (all those Zoom calls and online meetings) has me reaching for it now more than ever!

Positive ageing or otherwise known as “anti-ageing” is a huge part of the beauty industry and something we’ve all come to expect in the products we buy. As an awards category it’s a much-coveted accolade and the winners must offer something special and advanced results driven. TRUFFLELIXIR really is our Best Anti-Ageing Face Serum and a worthy multi award winner with Gold, Silver and Finalist positions in many of the Beauty Awards over the last year. Bringing you all the wish list results of an anti-aging product, this super luxe serum reduces and softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brings a dewy radiance, firms, lifts, hydrates, targets signs of visible aging, plumps skin and evens tone. A high-performance serum that provides immediate, short, and long-term results. Simply brilliant! So good that it’s become a can’t live without product for many, many of our colleagues, friends and customers.

Our best-selling product, WINDOWS OF THE SOUL, has won a well-deserved award for Best Eye Cream. Its specifically designed for the eye area and, with a really special lightweight yet rich texture the revolutionary formula gives the benefits of both a cream and a gel. The light gel texture cools, lifts and reduces puffiness and alleviates dark circles, whilst the luxurious creamy element provides nourishment by replacing lost moisture to the delicate eye area, smoothing fine lines and awakening skin.

We are so very grateful and proud to receive this recognition and for our exceptional skincare to be celebrated in this way. I am so proud of the brand that TEMPLESPA has grown to become and the wonderful people that all work so passionately to ensure each and every product has the results driven ‘live, breathe and love who you are’ feel good factor in every jar.
