The Sanctuary Series
Sanctuary Spa Essentials Creme Souffle
Whilst sitting (in my parents lounge, using my Mum's laptop, after she'd lovingly painted my toenails for me!) trying to think of something to blog about, or something that I wanted to review, I stumbled across a good idea! My Mum is slightly addicted to The Sanctuary products - which she blames on me - and is enjoying steadily working her way through the various ranges. I am an equally big fan of their products, so between the two of us, we're going to do a series of mini reviews.
This product has a light and fluffy texture, sinks into the skin super fast, and is totally non greasy - cue amusing quote from Mum: "you can apply your clothes almost immediately"! Mum bought this as part of 3 for 2 offer in Boots, which is a good time to buy, and would definitely repurchase. Its a "massive pot, a little goes a long way" and Mum loves the scent - which is unique to the Spa Essentials range - although she personally wouldn't apply perfume afterwards as it may clash. Mum suffers from very sensitive skin and always been surprised that this doesn't irritate her. Additionally, when applied to the skin before going to bed, it seems to act as an effective mosquito repellent, as well as a moisturiser! This, of course, is probably an effect of the scent, which is strong yet not overpowering, rather than any specific 'mosquito repelling' ingredients, but it's a welcome bonus. In actual fact, the only time this year Mum has been bitten, was on a trip to Bruges when she wasn't armed with this trusty product.
The Not So Good
The only downside is that this doesn't have quite as long lasting a moisturising effect as the Spa Essentials Body Butter, but on the plus side it has a lighter texture and is more easily absorbed.
