TSNC Christmas Gift Guide: Luxury Treats You Won’t Be Able To Resist

Posted on December 19, 2018

Hello friends! I’ve just finished off my latest gift guide, and this is definitely a good one! Full of luxury treats, there should be enough to inspire you for an extra special gift for a loved one, or even a little something for yourself this Christmas – enjoy! 🙂

Starting with this gorgeous Rodin Olio Lusso Holiday Lipstick Coffret – this mini lipstick set showcases five top-selling shades of Rodin Olio Lusso’s luxury lipstick, in a super cute golden spotted case. The creamy, ultra-smooth formula is enriched with jasmine and neroli oils, as well as Vitamin C and E nourish and soften, and the shades included are – Heavenly Hopp, So Mod, Red Hedy, Loving Lucy, and Billie on the Bike.

For skincare, the StriVectin Anti-Wrinkle Duo Set is definitely worth a look. Containing a pair of anti-ageing products to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, the kit promises to help you give you a firmer, brighter and younger-looking complexion. The set includes –

SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles and Stretch Marks 60ml – An anti-aging cream that visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks.

SD Advanced Intensive Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles 30ml – Promoting smoother, brighter-looking skin, this anti-ageing formula helps to visibly reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, deep set wrinkles and dark circles.

On to fragrance now, I had to include the stunning Jean Paul Gaultier Classique 2018 Collectors Edition – fans of this classic fragrance will know every Christmas Jean Paul Gaultier produces a Classique collectors edition with brand new and innovative packaging. For 2018, the iconic glass bust is wearing a sweet red Christmas jumper dress, housed in a fully functioning snow globe.

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Velvet Fatale Collectors Edition is another special edition fragrance released for winter 2018. This is in fact the original Good Girl fragrance, presented in a stunning new limited edition red velvet collector’s bottle.

If you’re feeling particularly spendy, how about Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Eau De Parfum? This gorgeous oriental vanilla fragrance really is the height of luxury – follow this delicious wood-scented journey, featuring notes of Coconut Milk, Black Vanilla Absolute, Beeswax, Caramelised Benzoin, and Liquorice, blended with Bitter Almond Paste, Gaïac Wood, Tonka Bean and Sandalwood at the base – just beautiful.

Berdoues Peng Lai Eau De Parfum is another fantastic choice if you’re looking for something high end and a little different. The Péng Lái fragrance represents the flower covered mountain where the goddess of flowers, He Xiangu, lived. Its floral and fruity softness reveals itself through one of China’s most precious materials, Osmanthus. Whilst smooth and sumptuous notes of Benzoin from Laos, and the Brazilian Tonka Bean blend to create a delicate and unforgettable fragrance.

For those looking for something cute and fun, the Lime Crime 10th Anniversary Brush Set could be the perfect gift! Presented in a rainbow box, this brush set includes four brushes – a Fluffy Highlighter Brush, Round Angled Shadow Brush, Angled Paddle Shadow Brush, and a Flat Liner/brow Brush. Each brush has clear handles, with pink glittery stars inside which float up and down as you use it 🙂

Another fragrance idea is new release, Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle EDP. This beautiful floral oriental scent is wonderfully romantic, feminine, and sensual. With top notes of Lychee, Rose Petals and Mimosa, a rich floral heart of Orange Flower, Gardenia and Tuberose, and Orris Root, a Blush Suede Accord, Marzipan Musk and Ambrox at the base. This is a must try for fans of Estee Lauder fragrances.

Gift sets always make wonderful Christmas presents, and this Templespa Do Not Disturb Peace, Relaxation & Sleep Collection could be the perfect gift for someone in need of some precious me-time. This 6-piece collection will leave skin, mind, body and soul feeling calm, restored and rejuvenated. Each product is a mélange of calming aromas, cashmere textures and botanicals, that together help you relax, restore and repose! Here’s what’s in the set –

  • Do Not Disturb Pillow Door Hanger
  • Quietude Calming Mist 50ml
  • Drift Away Bathing & Massage Oil 50ml
  • Duvet Comforting Body Cream 45ml
  • Becalm Soothing Face Mask 30ml
  • Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream 15ml

This gorgeous Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau De Parfum Gift Set would also make a lovely gift. Captivating and confident, Wonderlust evokes a lust for life where beauty, spontaneity and sensuality are the ultimate destination. Deeply romantic, it’s a fragrance inspired by the exotic, the unexpected and the unknown. The set includes a 50ml Wonderlust Eau de Parfum, 10ml Rollerball and a Michael Kors Rose Gold Card Holder.

Or how about this stunning Rose Gold Filofax Set? Perfect for stationery lovers, the classic Filofax Finsbury organiser has been given a luxe makeover and is now available in a beautiful metallic rose gold. Crafted with soft grain leather, the Finsbury includes a variety of handy features, such as a cardholder, tab fastening and a zip pocket, as well as a matching rose gold pen.

The Laura Mercier Brush Strokes Luxe Brush Collection would make a beautiful luxury gift for fans of the brand. Containing all you need to sculpt, highlight, contour and define, this set includes five travel brushes enclosed in travel-friendly brush roll. The set comprises of a Fan Brush, Cheek Colour Brush, Smoky Eye Liner Brush, All Over Eye Colour Brush and Eye Crease Brush.

Or how about the Laura Mercier Shadows & Brights Metallic Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection? – this is a limited edition collection of long-lasting, multi-tasking metallic creamy eye shadow sticks delivers both easy application and high-definition, long-lasting colour, that’s both transfer-resistant and crease-resistant. The set Includes four gorgeous metallic shades – Intense Amethyst, Intense Rose gold, Intense Moonlight, and Intense Copper.

I also had to include a little indulgent treat from Jo Malone. Unfortunately I don’t have anything from their Christmas collection, but this gorgeous Jo Malone Jasmine Sambac & Marigold Cologne Intense would still make a wonderful gift. This beautifully warm feminine fragrance combines precious Jasmine Sambac with vibrant Marigold, exotic Ylang Ylang, and rich Benzoin Resin, rounded off with a base of warm Vanilla and Amber.

Templespa Double Truffle Review & Giveaway!

Posted on February 15, 2016

templespa-double-truffle-review

Hi Guys!

I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s day?

I have a brand new and exciting product to show you today – this is the new and rather fancy Double Truffle from Templespa. Double Truffle is a 50ml jar containing two different products – one half is filled with Skin Truffle and the other half with Truffle Noir, hence Double Truffle!

If you’re not familiar with either of these products individually, I’ll do a quick rundown for you…

So firstly, Skin Truffle – Described as happiness in a jar. Templespa’s team of experts spent five whole years perfecting this product, so it should be good! It also has a unique patented formula including a massive selection of luxury ingredients –

  • HappyBelle-PE: This is a breakthrough phyto-endorphin complex, giving you the ‘I’ve just had good news’ glow.
  • Syn-Col: This is a pro-collagen peptide which aids collagen production.
  • Black Truffles: These are natural antioxidants, used to brighten skin tone, whilst firming and smoothing skin.
  • Cocoa Butter: To soften and hydrate the skin
  • Grape Seed Champagne: No this isn’t for drinking! It’s a natural antioxidant, that also fights free radicals.
  • Strawberry Extract: This is rich in nutrients, to tone, purify and freshen the complexion.
  • Gold & Silk Actives: To protect against skin stress, as well as offering moisturising and antibacterial properties.
  • Diamond Powder: This iluminates the skin, giving an instant glow.

Skin Truffle promises increased radiance and reduced dullness pretty much instantly – now that is a big claim! It also visibly reduces fine lines, regulates moisture levels and protected from age spots and hyper-pigmentation.

And Truffle Noir – this is basically Skin Truffle’s night time equivalent. Truffle Noir is designed to repair, restore and renew skin while you sleep. Again this has a luxury formula that’s quickly absorbed as well as non-greasy. This product targets loss of collagen, fine lines, deeper wrinkles, skin slackness and dull skin. It promises to restore elasticity and boost collagen to help strengthen skin. It also slows down the development of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst leaving skin feeling soft and plump, with a satin-matte finish.

Both of these products would definitely be called pricey by anyone’s standards – they’re £85 each, so Templespa have come up with the genius idea of creating a duo product, so you can get the best of both worlds, at the same price as a single jar… and Double Truffle was born!

I’ve used Skin Truffle before, so I knew I’d be on to a winner with this. It’s just such a luxurious product, it feels like you’re pampering your skin every day. Now I’ve started using it again I’ve been reminded of how much I loved it before – and the added night cream really is a welcome bonus. I’ve only been using these a few days now and I can already see and feel the results. My skin is feeling amazingly soft when I wake up in the morning, as well as clearer and brighter too.

Templespa Skin Truffle Total Face Rejuvenation Cream

Posted on May 21, 2015

templespa-skin-truffle

Hi Guys!

You know I’m a big fan of luxury products, and when it comes to skincare I really think it can pay to get the best you can afford. So with that in mind, today I’m talking about the award winning Temple Spa Skin Truffle Total Face Rejuvenation Cream. This stuff is packed full of amazing ingredients including gold and silk actives, diamond powder and black truffles – ooh err!

Arriving in a bronze box, this cream really is the height of luxury. Opening the lid reveals a decent sized (50ml) jar of pale truffle coloured cream – as well as a handy plastic spatula and instructions. The cream itself is beautifully thick and and rich, with the very slightest hint of shimmer and a light pleasant scent.

Described as happiness in a jar this wonder cream has been five years in the making by Templespa’s team of top skincare specialists. Incorperating a unique patented formula that utilises the very latest in nano and peptide technology, along with a fusion of natural actives, Templespa promises seriously impressive results including –

  • Instant radiance, lustre and clarity
  • Long term anti-ageing
  • Reviving tired, dull skin
  • Regulating moisture levels
  • Protection from age spots and hyper-pigmentation

Impressively, when tested, 80% of users declared increased radiance and reduced dullness upon immediate application. 100% said fine lines were visibly reduced and 100% said their skin hydration levels improved immediately.

Let’s take a look at some of the amazing sounding ingredients –

  • HappyBelle-PE: This is the breakthrough phyto-endorphin complex, that mimics the endorphin effect on the complexion, it gives the ‘I’ve just had good news’ glow.
  • Syn-Col: This pro-collagen peptide aids collagen production, it’s deeply penetrating with anti-wrinkle properties.
  • Black Truffles: These brighten the skin tone, acts as a natural antioxidant, and firms and smoothes the skin.
  • Cocoa Butter: Softens and lubricates the skin.
  • Grape Seed Champagne: Another natural antioxidant, this fights free radicals and regenerates skin.
  • Strawberry Extract: Rich in nutrients this is a natural beauty food, used to tone, purify and freshen.
  • Gold & Silk Actives: Free radicals protect against skin stress, as well as being moisturising and antibacterial.
  • Diamond Powder: Used to illuminate the skin, giving an instant glow.

After using this product only a few times, I can already see why it’s won an award and received the highest ever Beauty Bible Anti-Ageing Award score. I must admit I initially thought it may be too rich for my skin, but even though it has a thick texture it melts into the skin and is absorbed really quickly, leaving no residue or greasiness, just a healthy looking complexion. My skin definitely felt plumper and more radiant after only a couple of uses, and I think with continued use the results will be even more impressive. I know this isn’t a cheap product by anyone’s standards, but it’s definitely worth the money if you fancy splashing out on payday!

Templespa Skin Truffle Total Face Rejuvenation Cream is £85 for 50ml from Templespa.

I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any Templespa products? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
