Sanctuary Salt Scrub
Advantages: Leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and smelling delicious
I received a lovely Sanctuary gift set for Christmas which was packed full of lovely goodies. One of these lovely goodies was the Salt Scrub.
What does the product do?
The product has been designed to exfoliate the skin, removing all of the dead and dull skin cells to reveal the fresh and healthy ones underneath. It promises to leave the skin looking and feeling polished while also hydrating it deeply. The sea salt comes from the Dead Sea and it is mixed in with Coconut, Almond and Jojoba oils to leave the skin completely softened and smoothed. As well as all this, the product also claims to leave the skin smelling delicious.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be applied to damp skin. You need to scoop some from the pot and it is to be massaged into the skin. Then the product can be rinsed away and followed up with a good moisturiser.
Packaging and Price
I had a smaller than normal pot in my gift set. It comes in a plastic pot with a screw top lid and you can see the product inside. The full sized product comes in a glass jar with a metal clip which you lift in order to access the product. It will cost you around £11 for 650 grams of the product. It can be bought from large department stores such as Boots and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product comes with the typical smell of the Sanctuary products. It is luxurious and invigorating and it has a lovely natural goodness about it. When you see the product is looks like it packed full of large salt crystals mixed in with some oils. It has a honey coloured tinge to it. Even though the crystals are large, they don't actually hurt at all as you massage then into the skin, not even when applying it to dry skin. You can control the amount that you exfoliate by the pressure which you apply to the skin. It feels like it's doing a really good job without hurting the skin or causing me any irritations.
If I get into the bath to rinse away the product, the salt dissolves away so you're not sitting on lots of gritty bits. The oils from the product do make the skin lovely and soft, giving it a healthy and hydrated appearance. It doesn't make my skin feel greasy and you still feel nice and clean when you get out of the bath. It doesn't make my skin feel tight and even though I do apply a moisturiser after use, it does leave my skin soft enough not too. The scent of the product lingers on the skin for quite a while after use.
All in all, this is a really luxurious product which leaves my skin soft, smooth and healthy looking. It is a high quality product which is easy to use and gives fast results. Once I've used all mine, I wouldn't hesitate to purpose the full sized product.
Summary: A lovely salt scrub which leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth
