Temple Spa Look On The Bright Side and Glint


Hello lovelies! With the festive season on its way, it's more acceptable to introduce some sparkle into our lives. I'm not just talking about that coat of glittery nail polish you're considering applying to your nails. I'm talking about our faces. Ok, sparkle may be a bit too much unless you're part timing as a mermaid but what about getting our glow back? What glow you may be wondering? Yes, I know it may be hard to remember considering we've been submerged into darkness over here but there's nothing wrong with faking it. After all, who can resist glowy skin?

Today I'm talking all about Temple Spa's Red Carpet Range*. You may remember a while back I fell in love with Temple Spa's Exalt Firming Neck Cream and they definitely haven't disappointed again. When I think about the red carpet, what springs to mind is beautiful women with radiant skin, oh and gorgeous dresses. We can't not mention the dresses right? Unfortunately Temple Spa can't cover us on the dress front but they've gave it their best to provide a makeup and skin care range that enhances our celeb worthy skin.

 Here's what they say:
'Do you ever wish you could erase the lines and tell-tale signs of tiredness.... like immediately? This high-tech miracle make-up collection will make you look like you’ve had a red carpet facial, in seconds. Fabulous ‘photo-finish’ results you can see straight away.
Use for everyday glamour or when you need a quick fix for a big event. Use to hide flaws and skin imperfections or to give your complexion a bit of ‘wow-factor’. However you want to use them they all work synergistically to ensure red carpet look readiness when you need it. You will look amazing!'

Temple Spa The Contourist* 6 sachets (£50):

Let's face it, we've all seen the celebs working this type of face mask on Instagram so I was pretty excited to see the results. The mask is one of those over the ear ones which contours the skin. Temple Spa's The Contourist uses diamond weave technology to lift, reduce sagging, define contours and remodel the face. Kind of like a face lift without the pain. The mask is also saturated in a 'skin perfecting serum' which is incredibly cold but so refreshing. Afterwards you can massage the serum into the skin as a treat.

All I was really looking for out of this was maybe a better contour and a luxurious spa experience. They definitely achieved the spa experience part as the mask was so relaxing and refreshing although I'm not too sure about the contouring part to be honest. My cheekbones did look more defined but it wasn't a huge difference. That aside, my skin was left feeling revived with a lovely healthy glow. It also felt pretty tight but not in the I've just washed my face with a tube of Freederm way (we've all been there) but in a firm way. An added bonus of this mask is that you can get a few laughs by jumping out and scaring your boyfriend when wearing it. I'm still laughing about it now.

Temple Spa Glint* (£25):

This is the product I was most excited for. Glint is a highlighting concealer pen which can be used to brighten dark areas. Temple Spa suggest using this to camouflage dark circles, shadows and fine lines. It is also supposed to create an even skin tone. Those of you who read my blog often will know that I'm forever battling with dark circles so Temple Spa would have to pull out all the stops to impress me in the eye department.

Once the concealer is flowing, I find that one click is enough for both eyes as the liquid distributes really well. The concealer is light enough to blend with ease and doesn't crease or cake under the eyes which is always a problem for me. As for coverage, this does a pretty good job for concealing under eyes. I do go in now and again with another concealer to cover the darkness in my inner corners but as for the rest of my eye it leaves a beautiful light reflecting finish. I usually pat it out to my outer cheek bone area to create a glowy highlight too. My only issue is the colour. I'm incredibly pale so light is still a little too dark for me but only just.

Temple Spa Look On The Bright Side Instance Radiance Booster* (£30): 

I actually thought I'd like this the least out of the bunch but surprisingly this was my favourite. Temple Spa state that Look On The Bright Side can even out skin tone, gives a detoxing effect, energises and revives skin. This can be used as an illumininator/highlighter so you can apply it to cheek bones, centre of the nose etc. to brighten up the face. I initially tried it this way but it seemed to cake on my cheek bones. I had the same issue with Benefit's High Beam so I'm not sure if it's to do with my skin type but I switched to using this under my foundation and what a difference it made!

I always thought that using an illuminator underneath my makeup would be pointless as it would wash out the effect but it didn't. I made sure to apply it in particular around my cheek area and the glow was just stunning. The liquid is scarily orange when you look at it but don't be fooled. This instantly sheers out leaving a light golden highlight. Imagine a sunkissed glow. My favourite thing about this product is the smell. This may sound crazy but it smells like holidays. Think lying on the beach with a mix of sun tan lotion, sea, sand and a hint of light perfume. I have a habit of smelling it and my boyfriend keeps saying are you at it again. He thinks it smells like posh people but that's boys for you. I can see where he's coming from though, it does have a luxurious scent.

Overall I'm pretty impressed with this range. I was looking for a product to replace my Dream Lumi Touch after the drama I had with the shading and Glint has definitely restored my faith in the concealer pen. If you're looking to fake that glow, I'd definitely recommend Look On The Bright Side. Don't hold me to this but I'm sure you can get a bottle of this if you subscribe to Glamour Magazine (double check that first though). As for The Contourist, it's such a luxurious product but a little pricey for me. I'd say it's more of a Christmas treat. If you'd like to have a browse of the Temple Spa website I'll leave a link here. Also if you're lucky and you live near a Selfridges or Harrords you could also pop in.

What's your thoughts? Do you have a go to product for glowy skin?

  1. The Raidiance Booster sounds so good! I have always wondered about illuminating underneath my foundation and this sounds like it does exactly what you would want it to do! I am a huge fan of highlight but I feel like in real life it can look a bit too much sometimes. I love the idea of this just giving a healthy glow to the skin! This was a great review and great post!

  23. To add the instant radiance booster sounds great. There's nothing better then healthy dewy skin! Personally I love Clarin's products as they never disappoint. Always a very high quality. I haven't tried Temple before and I'm so into my skincare it's worth having a look at. I recommend Clarins double serum as it really performs ever so well.
