I’ve been aware of the Temple Spa beauty brand for a long time, and I remember attending an event and trying out the products possibly around 4-5 years ago. I always associated them as the luxury hotel brand – you know when you check in at a nice hotel and find a range of Temple Spa products in the bathroom?
Anyway, I finally got my hands on one of their facial exfoliators and masks called The Power Breakfast (as it’s literally a two-in-one) and decided to give it a go. I was missing a good facial scrub from my bathroom shelf, and more than open to try out a new one.
So lets see how I found it…
When I read up on the product before using it (because I always do this!). I read that it is designed to be your skincare version of how great you feel when your day starts with a really healthy breakfast.
So you know when you kick off your day with a Power Breakfast? This scrub-mask is formulated with the same ingredients; oats, honey, fruit and juice.
These ingredients work to gently dissolve dead skin cells, polish, de-congest and brighten even the dullest of complexions. It’s a nutritious scrub and face mask in one as I mentioned above, so can be used as a quick one minute scrub in the morning, or a twenty minute mask to balance, nourish and restore.
Due to it’s deeply exfoliating texture and nourishing ingredients, I knew I’d benefit from this scrub and mask as I have a rather bumpy and rough skin texture, but one that needs moisturisation too.
It’s probably ideal for all skin types though, as the polishing scrub isn’t too harsh, and leaves no redness after using. Plus, due to it’s natural ingredients packed into it, it’s quite gentle. That said, I’m finding this great for my congested skin, and I can honestly say after the first go using this, my skin felt amazing!
Literally so super soft, as if the exfoliating particles buffed out my entire face.
I don’t use it everyday, more like every fourth day. After cleansing, I simply splash my face with warm water and whilst still a little wet, use the spatula to scoop up a pea-sized amount of the scrub onto my face. I pay more attention to my cheeks, which are full of pigmentation and breakouts.
Then, using small circular, upward and outward movements, I just massage it into my face and neck, avoiding the eyes. After a minute or so, I rinse off thoroughly with warm water until it is all washed off.
My skin feels soft straight away – it really does work quickly!
I’d sum this up as a great scrub and mask to use if your skin is in need of smoothing and brightening. It isn’t an acne helper or anything like that, and I wouldn’t say it’s a ‘treatment’ for super dry skin, but it’s real good at keeping skin healthy!
It retails at £28 and if you use it once/twice a week, this pot will last you aaaaaaages!
