WHAT THE INDEPENDENT TRIALS SAY...
A highly concentrated daily cleansing balm that gives a ‘just had a facial’ feeling every time you cleanse your face. Its unique buttery-crystalline texture gently removes make-up and daily impurities whilst moisturising and rejuvenating dull looking skin.
This luxurious emollient balm contains beads that gently exfoliate the skin before completely melting to release a deeply cleansing vitamin rich complex straight into the skin layers, without drying or stripping. Your skin is left clean, fresh, radiant, moisturised and dewy; it will be positively glowing with health and vitality.
Use morning and evening as a daily face cleansing ritual
- Using the spatula provided, apply a small amount to your forehead, cheeks and chin. With clean fingers, massage into your skin using circular upward movements. The little beads will gently exfoliate and slough off any excess dry patches and the beads will melt, leaving their goodness behind. Remove by moistening a muslin cloth or damp flannel and gently massaging over the skin before wiping off. Finish with a splash of cold water to stimulate circulation and enhance your skin’s radiance.
- Complete your cleansing routine with toning essence to ensure that your skin is clean and fresh to prep it for moisturising.

Heavenly!I have never used this type of cleanser before so at the age of 63 I felt it was time to give it a go. I was completely blown away by the way it felt on my skin both during the cleansing process and after. My favourite time of day is coming home from work and cleaning my face. I will never used a different cleanser again. Love Love Love xxx
Incredible!I am very, very picky with my cleansers - I have tried so many but very few actually gain my approval. This one however... passes with flying colours! It smells incredible, is kind to skin, leaves it so so soft and doesn’t affect spots. Incredible!
Luxury in a tub!I don't use this every day but I use it as a treat a few times a week. It smells amazing and just like you are in a spa. When you rub it in the beads melt so nicely against your skin that it feels like a facial in a spa! Sometimes I leave it on while in the bath for 20-30 mins and it is luxurious. My skin always feels soft, clean and clear after using it. Definitely one of my must haves.
Not as goodI’ve bought this a few times now and have always loved it. It made my skin feel amazing. However, since the packaging has changed I wonder if the balm has. The one I have now is not great. There a big lumps in it and they don’t dissolve when massaged into skin.
Message from Temple Spa - Thanks for your review and feedback, there was a formula change however this shouldn't have changed the constituency, we would ask that you contact us to arrange a replacement.
FabulousFeels like a luxury facial every day! Skin is improved since using. Have tried lots of cleansers but this is my favourite
It’s ok.I was so exited about trying this after reading the reviews and I am currently obsessed with cleansing balms at the moment. I like this, but it’s not as good as the de mamiel cleansing balm I have been using. I’m going to keep using it though.
Gorgeous CleanserI love this cleanser, the smell, the feel, great on my skin. It really feels like it is giving my skin a deep cleanse but leaving it feeling soft, not dry, as some cleansers do. The smell is divine conjures up a calming spa.
Australian Women you must try this brandThis cleanser is the best I have ever used. I am 66yrs and it leaves my skin with a dewy look and amazingly soft.
Spa in a JarThis product is truly awesome. On its own it's a great first step in a skin care ritual. From the minute you open the jar the spa smell hits you. It elevates a home pamper session to something special. I look forward to using ghis on a sunday. It's a lovely grainy texture that feels great as you rub it in but even better when you have removed it with a hot flannel. Some days I just use this to wash away a hard day then go to bed but on a Sunday I love following 'in the beginning' with my favourite face mask. A little dies go a long way but my wish is for a bigger jar.
The real deal!A tiny amount goes a long way. Leaves your skin very soft and hydrated without it feeling greasy. The beautiful scents linger on and give you a real 'spa at home' experience!
