This is the newest product for the cult truffle range from Temple Spa skincare. It is a high performance ‘super serum’ that contains patented technology, powerful botanics and active ingredients to give both short and long-term results.
RETINOL – SWERTIA CHIRATA STEM CELL – BLACK ORCHID
This trufflelixir serum contains encapsulated retinol (0.03%) which is known to increase your skin turnover, aids skin elasticity, stimulates collagen formulation & improves the general look and feel of the skin. It also contains Swertia Chirata stem cell extract (yep. I had never heard of it either) which is used in indian ancient medicine for it’s healing properties, it also helps improve the skin barrier and comforts the skin. Black Orchid helps to protect the skin from environmental factors such as free radicals to help reduce the ageing process.
This serum has a really luxe and silky feel to it, and should be applied both AM/PM under your moisturiser. It hasn’t got a “PM-only” amount of retinol so is fine for use in the day, but as you should be anyway, opt for an SPF day cream. This serum is ideal for anyone looking to protect and plump the skin, enhance radiance and target any visible signs of ageing. 2 pumps is sufficient for a full face and neck application.
I’m loving this as a daily serum as it gives an instant hit of glow and freshness to the skin, absorbs in really well, smooths and is a great base under makeup. Radiance in a bottle – YES PLEASE GIMME.
An old favourite from the Temple Spa truffle range is the Trufflesque Ultra Hydration & Radiance Mask which I have been slathering on lately on my ever-changing and slightly unpredictable prenatal skin. I’m getting dry and flakey in patches all over my face so have dug this mask back up to soothe and brighten my tired and lacklustre skin. It has a nifty hydra-plump complex which gives lift and plumpness back to the skin, alongside black truffle, gold & silk peptides and a fruit acid complex = smooth, nourished, bright & luminous skin. This is perfect for a once-a-week-pick-me-up OR a special occasion prep mask to get your skin looking fabulous.
