I was recently asked by Temple Spa to collaborate with them to help bring awareness to their Take a Moment campaign. The campaign is being run in conjunction with The Mariposa Trust, more specifically their Saying Goodbye division throughout October.
The Mariposa Trust is an international charity supporting families who have lost a baby, whether that be in pregnancy, child birth or infancy. I also feel it’s important to mention that they support families whether they’ve lost a child recently or 70 years ago.
I’m so happy to be part of this campaign like this. I feel this is something that touches us all whether it be our own experience or the experience of family or friends. It’s extremely important to try and bring this topic to the forefront. The Mariposa Trust are currently fundraising to try and set up a 24 hour helpline to help those who have experienced loss. This is such a worthy idea as like me, I’m sure you would like to know that those who have lost a baby or a child have somebody kind and knowledgeable available to listen to them no matter what time day it is.
So throughout October, which is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, Temple Spa are running some beautiful promotions on their website to help the charity raise funds so let me run through them with you now.
Firstly there’s the Take a Moment gift. This is a 4 piece collection of miniature Temple Spa products designed with relaxation in mind. When you go through highly stressful times in your life sleep is usually one of the first things that suffers. Temple Spa have put together this gift to help get that sleep back on track. You can purchase it for £15 when you spend over £65 on the Temple Spa website. For every Take a Moment gift set purchased, 10% of those sales will be donated directly to the charity.
Let me run through the contents of the gift with you;
Drift Away 30ml
Drift Away is a multi purpose product. As well as being a bath oil it can also be used as a massage oil. Having tried it I can clarify that firstly, it smells out of this world. Secondly you feel instantly transported to a sleepy place once you have it on your skin. I’ve only used it as a massage oil myself because I’m a bit lazy when it comes to baths but it is gloriously de-stressing. It’s citrusy scent helps you to feel calm and relaxed and obviously with it being an oil it feels lovely and hydrating.
Peace Be Still 15ml
This is such a gorgeous skin balm. Again it’s a multi purpose product so you’re free to use it on the face, hands and body. Not to harp on about smells too much but as you know I am a huge fan of aromatherapy based skincare. Because of that these Temple Spa products just tick every single box for me. I adore it as a hand cream, it’s lightweight but moisturising and leaves your skin feely beautifully softened.
Quietude Calming Mist 30ml
Temple Spa call this “The Ambiance of a Spa in a Bottle” and I have to say I agree. This is a beautiful calming spritz that can be used on your body or as a room essence. It helps to promote deeper breathing which in turn promotes a more restful nights sleep.
Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream 15ml
Last up is Temple Spa’s best selling product, Repose. This beautiful aromatherapy cream is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. Repose is dubbed as a “Good Night’s Sleep in a Jar” and I can see why. A stunning blend of essential oils including Chamomile, Lavender and Patchouli which naturally help to aid restful sleep.
Considering I’m a terrible sleeper I was excited to try this. I’m not going to claim for one minute that it was some kind of miracle cure for Insomnia but it made me feel so relaxed after I applied it. I have lots of serums and oils but no rich night cream so this fits right in to my night time regime perfectly. If you’re a fan of aromatherapy and love your creams and lotions to smell like you’re at a spa then Temple Spa is a brand you have to try.
As a brand I think they have something for everybody. They stock a wide range of products from Skincare to Bath and Body and even have a range for the men in your life. I’m so thrilled that I had the opportunity to work with this brand and I’m really looking forward to discovering more products.
Now for the excellent news for you. From the 16th of October until the 22nd Temple Spa are running a Buy One Get One Free promotion on Repose. This means you get two 50ml jars for £40. That’s incredible value for money and 10% of all Repose sales will be donated straight to The Mariposa Trust. This is a win win promotion, you get to purchase two jars of gorgeous night cream for the price of one and also get to support a really worthy cause along the way.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. It means an awful lot to me to raise awareness for this charity, I hope you feel the same way. As always if you have any questions then pop them underneath and I’ll answer them as soon as I can.
