Temple Spa Life Defence SPF 30 Protecting Moisturiser

Looking after and protecting your skin this summer has never been easier thanks to Temple Spa.

This wonderfully lightweight daily moisturiser contains a broad spectrum SPF 30 and blue light protection to help protect against a huge host of aggressors including the environment, sun, wind, pollution, air-conditioning, heating and even digital screens.

Containing a potent antioxidant complex of rocket, ginseng root, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid these ingredients create an invisible barrier against the sun and skin damaging free radicals ensuring your skin is safeguarded and feeling soft, healthy and radiant all day every day.

Suitable for even sensitive skin like mine, this gentle yet hard working moisturiser has been designed to be applied to freshly cleansed skin or over your regular daily moisture and can be reapplied throughout the day (providing you’re not wearing make up!) during long periods of exposure to the elements or every 2 hours if exposed the sun.

While marketed as a moisturiser I’d be inclined to describe its texture as closer to a skin milk thanks to its feather-light texture. Silky, soft, light and immediately absorbed it possesses a summer suncream scent which makes you think of warm summer days at the beach.

Unlike suncream however, there is no hint of greasiness or any residual ‘whiteness’ after application. 

It simply sinks into your skin leaving it feeling soft, pampered and nourished. I've actually ditched my traditional sun cream in favour for this moisturiser when it comes to protecting the skin on my face from the sun as unlike my sun cream it doesnt cause blocked pores and then subsequantly, pimples!

In fact, once applied you could pretty much forget that its there, working hard to protect your skin (apart from the occasional waft of its summery suncream aroma) but make no mistake that the blend of ingredients within this moisturiser are working super hard!

Vitamin E helps to soften skin and replenish dehydrated skin, protect cells from UV damage and environmental pollutants that cause signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, it helps treat wrinkles by supporting the growth of new healthy skin cells and speeding up cell regeneration.

It also boosts collagen production to keep skin elastic which also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as helping to keep your skin firm and taut.

Sodium hylaluronate helps to attract and retain moisture while Glyceryl Stearate forms a barrier on the skins surface slowing down the loss of water and helping to give skin a softer and smoother surface.

Rocket Extract which is rich in isothiocyanates (anti-oxidant free radical scavengers that help to counter and neutralise the effects of skin damaging free radicals) helps to soothe, reduce redness and possesses both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities while Organic Ginseng Root Extract is clinically proven to protect against digital pollution.

I didn’t even realise I  could be damaging my skin by being on my phone or working on my laptop but apparently so as your skin is exposed to blue, red and green light, whose rays can cause additional environmental stress to the mitochondria cells in our skin which play a role in maintaining healthy skin cells.

Scary stuff!

Thankfully, due to Life Defence I need not worry quite so much as I know that my skin is being well looked after and while it’s a great product to use during sunny summer months it is equally as useful and important all year round.
