Sanctuary Spa

The Ultimate Home Spa

I’m back again this week with another blog! With a brand I’ve always wanted to try, Sanctuary Spa!

I got my hands on their home spa mini set, which came with a Body Wash, Hand Cream, Body Scrub and the Wet Skin Moisture Miracle, I manage to get this set during the New Year sale for £6.00! I know right… talk about bargain! I’ve always seen their brand as a “luxury body brand”, and heard good things about their “Iconic fragrance”, so thought it was about time I found out for myself.

Body Wash

Their transparent orange body wash, is infused with essential oils & jojoba beads. It’s now been added to my top 5 favourite shower gels. It lathers very well, and a little goes a long way. This product is vegan friendly, and contains no micro-beads. As moisturising as it is, I have found myself using this shower gel with the body scrub and miracle moisture. RRP £6.00 – Vegan Friendly

Body Scrub

Their orange coloured beaded shower scrub is infused with natural pumice & essential oils. It felt like most scrubs I’ve used in the past, perhaps I would’ve preferred something a bit more harsh. RRP £6.50 – Vegan Friendly

Wet Skin Moisture Miracle

The concept of creaming your body in the shower, isn’t very foreign to me as I’ve previously tried it with a failed brand before. But Sanctuary Spa did not disappoint. This super lightly/ runny formula is the best way to end your shower regimen. Applying it to my wet skin was easy, using a generous amount all over. As instructed I didn’t wash it off but simply towel dried myself, and my skin was felt like it had been creamed ( I am not over exaggerating Lol), It felt so soft and smelt amazing. If you want to add something new to your shower or bath routine, I 100% recommend this product. RRP £8.00 – Vegan Friendly

Hand Cream

This has joined my top 5 favourite hand cream league table. Their hand cream had a refreshing smell which had people on my desk asking what I was using. This light weight, non sticky formula left my hands feeling very moisturised. Pumped with shea butter and almond oil, it’s one I recommend. RRP £6.00 – Vegan Friendly

Brandy Thinks

Overall for a home mini spa set I really enjoyed using these products. I very much appreciate this set being vegan friendly. Their RRP price is a bit of a stretch for what I’d pay, but for the Body Wash and Wet Skin Moisture Miracle the price is 100% worth it. Here in the UK drug stores such as Boots and Superdrug are constantly doing offers, and currently you can buy this set for £8.00 from most drug stores. I’ll be in incorporating this regime more frequently on holiday and weekends away.

Imperial Leather: Limited Edition

End of Summer Special?

September has finally arrived, and not to say I have been waiting for it, but it brings us steps closer to Autumn! It also means for many others count time for their last minute summer holiday or sunny winter break! And Imperial Leather has decided to drop some new limited edition shower gels 🙂

The first thing I can say about this range is that I LOVE the packaging! Each product has its own unique theme that makes it look fun, colourful and exciting and definitely a holiday pick up! Their new limited edition range has 4 shower gel products.

  • Tropic Like It’s Hot! Pineapple & Coconut Fantasy Icons Shower Gel
  • Let’s Flamingle! Pink Lychee & Raspberry Fantasy Icons Shower Gel
  • Cosmic Unicorn Moon & Sparkles Unicorn Dust Fantasy Icons Shower Gel
  • Mermazing Fijian Water & Lotus Flower Fantasy Icons Shower Gel

I managed to grab my hands on only the first three products at my local drugstore (Superdrug) for the great price of 98p, the RRP for this product is £1.99 (250ml). They are all dermatologically tested, Suitable for all skin types and contain fragrances. Imperial Leather are already well known for releasing bath products that are different from their competitors and always out to mix up new fragrances.

Cosmic Unicorn Moon & Sparkles Unicorn Dust Fantasy Icons Shower Gel.

The unicorn craze doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon and Imperial Leather are all her for it! I was intrigued by this product as it advertised unicorn dust, but actually didn’t state what that is on the front packaging. I’m not to sure on whether I was keen on smelling like a unicorn (even though I don’t know what one smells like) But in the shower this light blissful fragrance was actually very pleasant. It actually contains pink grapefruit, critic Crush and white florals. I wouldn’t say I could smell the grapefruit  so If you prefer a very light floral fragrance shower gels this product is for you.

Tropic Like It’s Hot! Pineapple & Coconut Fantasy Icons Shower Gel

Ok, so this one caught my eye in the store then I found its friends standing beside it. Coconut and Pineapple isn’t a scent you frequently come across for a shower gel. I believe it has a distinctive smell so its either get it right or go home. But I can confirm Imperial got it right! This product smells amazing! If you are someone who loves a tropical/  fruity scents, I highly recommend this. Now that autumn is fast approaching I see myself packing this for a summer winter break or even to an Ibiza closing party than using it at home.

Let’s Flamingle! Pink Lychee & Raspberry Fantasy Icons Shower Gel

Another contender with the fun packaging and catchy name! Unlike the Pineapple and coconut shower gel, Lychee and Raspberry isn’t two flavours or scents I come across often, only in a tart (Yes, i mean food). I would say this product had more of a raspberry / berry scent to it but out of the trio it was  my favourite. The smell may be over-whelming for some people and the scent does last in the shower longer than the other two products, but I’m all here for it. Even post holiday I will be topping up and adding it to my morning regime 🙂

Brandy Thinks?

Overall I am excited to see Imperial Leather switch it up once again! With unpredictable scents, fruits and names its great to see a brand have some fun! I look forward on getting my hands on the fourth scent Mermazing Fijian Water & Lotus Flower Fantasy Icons Shower Gel.The quality of the product is great so for the price paid, its value for your money. It lathers very well, and doesn’t try out my skin. These products can be found in your local drug stores (UK – Boots, Superdrug, Savers and Supermarkets). So if your going away any time soon, or just want to unwind one evening, definitely give these products a go!
