Recently, ASOS have pretty much broken the Internet with their ongoing decisions to keep the airbrush away from their swimwear and lingerie models and have continued to release images with completely unedited and un-photoshopped stretchmarks.

I have stretch marks.

Doctors often refer to stretch marks as stria, striae or – during pregnancy – striae gravidarum. NHS

The majority of my stretch marks are from pregnancy and I proudly wear my thin, silver badges of honour; I am not in the least bit ashamed of them.

However, we are all different and for some of us, men and women alike, stretch marks are unwelcome. They can sometimes be avoidable, especially during pregnancy, with the right skincare routine but it all depends on your skin type and the fact remains that you are either prone to them or you are not and if you are, then no amount of oils or potions will deter them. It’s not your fault, it’s nature; as unavoidable as they are for some of us though, stretch marks can be distressing and learning to accept them and live with them can be a challenge.

Temple Spa do not have any ‘magic potions’ to eliminate your stretch marks; there is no such elixir and beware of anyone telling you any different. Stretch marks are scars and as such, although they can fade on their own or be treated to become less noticable, they will not disappear forever.

What we at Temple Spa do have is an oil called IT’S ALL GOOD and it is an incredibly powerful, restorative cocktail of science and natural ingredients (like peach kernel and sunflower oils) that can be used to significantly diminish the appearance of stretch marks.

IT’S ALL GOOD retails at £38.00 for 50 ml and lasts for ages (as is the case with all of our products – their longevity is legendary).

IT’S ALL GOOD is currently, albeit briefly, available in the cutest, 5ml sample size dropper bottle, as part of our SUMMER SAVIOURS exclusive offer (but hurry because this is a limited time offer).

Should you have missed out on SUMMER SAVIOURS and stretch marks are a concern, IT’S ALL GOOD is definitely the product for you and most certainly available to purchase in the regular size.

Temple Spa is a total lifestyle brand that fuses together product, philosophy and spa. Their anti-ageing skincare, de-stressing and luxury body care products are sold in premium retail store Harrods (Apothecary) and much loved by top beauty editors.


The best way to experience Temple Spa is at one of their spa retreats, but they understand that not everyone has the opportunity, time or finances to go to a spa every week. So they have set up the opportunity to sample the spa experience at home through their classes. You get to try out the products, learn tips on having a spa lifestyle, and get special discounts on which are not available in store.
