Sanctuary Salt Scrub
Advantages: smells lovely, makes your skin really soft, a luxurious bath treat at £1.50 if you buy the sachets
Disadvantages: Sachets can be hard to get into - I'd advise taking scissors to them before you bath!
The Sanctuary Salt Scrub is far and away my favourite bath product ever. It is available either in a glass jar which is resealable for around £7, or else in sachets which are £1.50. I tend to buy the sachets and use one a week in order to limit my use to treats.
The scrub is made of sea salt that is mixed in with jojoba, coconut and sweet almond oil. It is a thick paste-like mixture with a long lasting scent. I used it twice last week before parties and my room and towels still smell of it, so its good that the fragrance is lovely - a sort of expensive spa smell is the only description I can come up with as none of the individual fragrances really come through for me.
Once you've used the scrub on your skin it seems to glow a little from the oils, looks smoother and feels really soft. Sanctuary advise using it in the bath and then relaxing in the oils once you've washed it off. I limit my use of it to my arms, shoulders and legs as on delicate skin like the chest and stomach, I think the effect would be too rough.
Sanctuary also advise using their cocoa butter moisturiser afterwards. I never have as the oils in this seem to be enough for my skin, but I am tempted to do so to see how well the fragrance layers and lasts. if i try this i will review it here.
Summary: A lovely product that I use regularly with cheaper sachets if you don't want to spend £7 in one go
