Advantages: Long-lasting exfoliation and moisturisation
Disadvantages: Too much oil left behind after salt used up
I have been a big fan of Sanctuary products for several years now, as I love the luxurious quality and distinctive fragrance of the products. This salt scrub is definitely up there with my favourite products from the Sanctuary and I've used it many times.
This is great - the scrub comes in a heavy, high-quality glass container that feels expensive and looks great in your bathroom. I always reuse the jar once I've finished the scrub - it's great for storing dried foods or other cosmetic products!
The scrub has a sweet but not sickly scent, which will be familiar to those who have used Sanctuary products before. It might seem like a very feminine product, but I think it's be suitable for men and women alike as Sanctuary products have a really lovely deep musk scent which suits both genders.
This scrub is extremely effective in exfoliating dry, tired skin. Although the salt has a fairly coarse texture, this is tempered by the luxuriously soft spa oil. It might not be suitable for those with fragrance allergies or very sensitive skin, but I have quite sensitive skin myself and have had no problems with it. In terms of endurance, the scrub leaves my skin really soft and smelling lovely, and this lasts for at least 24 hours afterwards.
My only criticism is I've found that there is quite a lot of oil left at the bottom of the jar after I've used the salt up. However, this isn't too much of a problem as if you have rock salt in the kitchen, you can add a bit of this to make the oil last longer. Or you can just use it as bath oil for a bonus treat!
Using the scrub really does feel like a spa treat, and it leaves your skin very soft and supple for at least 24 hours after using it. This would make a great Christmas present - a real winter treat for your skin!
Summary: Highly recommended!
