Sanctuary Body Moisture Spray

I first tried Sanctuary products at Christmas when my Mum bought me a massive gift set of body pampering treatments.  I was a little hesitant at first, since I'd not really heard much about the brand, but within one session of scrubbing, washing and intensive moisturising, I was in love.  The brand is very on point - luxury at home; you can find everything, from everyday treatments right through to real spa-style pampering, for every part of your body.

I also love tiny products, and saw this in the 'mini' section of Boots.  For £2.50 and '3 for 2' running, it seemed a perfect time to trial it.  The Body Moisture Spray is actually like a dry oil mist; it smells divine, like all the other Sanctuary products I've tried - a smell which I cannot describe, no matter how hard I try!  All I know is, the smell is so delicious, I can't stop sniffing it.  I find this is also the perfect solution to my dislike of the laborious task of applying body cream.  It takes around a minute to spritz over my limbs and torso, quickly rub it in, and with it being a dry oil, there's no residue and it's soaked in fast enough for me to get dressed.  Now I don't have to feel quite so guilty about moisturising my face religiously, and ignoring the rest of me!  My skin overall feels so lovely and soft all day too, and I feel like the benefits of the sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and Vitamin E are evident.  There's a lot to be said for these oils!

I've used the Body Moisture Spray for around a handful of uses so far, and I've got half a bottle left.    Since this is a travel/test it version, I don't think that's too bad!  I actually purchased it for a weekend away, and it was perfect for travelling.  I've definitely enjoyed using it so far.  My only gripe is the mineral oil - I prefer not to use it as part of my skincare routine, and don't really want to on my body either.  But considering the price I probably shouldn't complain too much!  Despite that, I'd definitely consider buying the larger version and ditch all the body creams!

Boots' website also boasts good reviews for the Therapists Facial Oil, so I'm thinking about trying that next. Has anyone tried it?  Or can recommend another facial oil for dehydrated combination skin?


  1. I love Sanctuary products! I might have to pick this up to go in my festival bag! xo

  2. Oh, I hadn't thought about it being used for festivals!  Good call!  Normally at festivals I let regimes slide and become an utter mess... ;) xx
