I love a good pampering sesh, from a mid-week evening thing to a weekend away at a spa. Everyone deserves a little self-care so when I received some products from Sanctuary Spa, I decided to make every night this week, pamper night.
Sanctuary Spa is a brand I’ve heard of before but I’ve never tried out their products which is surprising because most of the products I’ve seen reviewed or looked at online, are actually right up my street.
I received three products in total and I wanted to give you a little info on what they are, how they performed and whether I’d purchase them once they’re empty.
Triple Cleansing Mousse (RRP £9.60)
I started off by trying the Triple Cleansing Mousse on my skin after removing my makeup. This is a fluffy mousse that has a micro fine exfoliating powder in it called Perlite. My skin is quite sensitive to abrasive exfoliators so I find that exfoliators with these small bits of material can often leave my skin feeling quite sore and inflamed.
This one wasn’t as bad as some that I have had, but I still suffered with it around the cheek area. However saying that, my skin certainly felt smooth afterwards and although a little dry, it also felt clean. Not one I’ll be buying again but I’ll give it a few more tries before I pass it onto someone else.
Classic Luxury Oil Shower Burst Foam (RRP £5.60)
Holy guaca-moly this is good. I’ve never tried a shower foam before, so this was a new experience for me when I first tried the Classic Luxury Oil Shower Burst Foam in the shower. It has the same consistency as a shaving foam does and once you rub it onto the skin, it lathers up even more so that you’re practically enveloped in foamy goodness. It smells fresh and florally and consists of Patchouli, Sandalwood and Jasmine.
It’s a very uplifting and invigorating scent and even if it were more than £5.60, I would still re-purchase this product. Everytime I use it, my skin ends up so luxuriously soft and hydrated. I like that it has Camelina and sweet almond oil in it because it helps the fragrance remain on the skin as you continue to shower.
5 Minute Charcoal Thermal Detox Mask (RRP £10.00)
I love a good mask, any mask for that matter but when I saw the 5 Minute Charcoal Thermal Detox Mask, I was very much intrigued because I’ve never tried a heated mask before. This warming clay treatment is a self-heating mask that activates as you gently massage it into the skin. The formula is said to draw out all of the impurities, helping to improve the skin and prevent it from further breakouts.
The mask did not disappoint and you should have seen me gasping and making a variety of ‘ooo‘ and ‘ahhh‘ sounds as the heat intensified on my skin. It was not at all painful but instead feels as though you’ve placed one of those warm towels you get in restaurants over your face. For a tenner, this is a mask I will be re-purchasing as it’s the perfect Autumn/Winter mask.
Have you tried any of the Sanctuary Spa products before? Let me know in the comments below.
