For my 21st birthday, my best friend handed me a rather large gift box. Inside this was shredded paper which hid numerous gifts that she had wrapped individually. How much effort had she put into that! One of the gifts that I unwrapped was a tub of Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Body Cream
Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Cream is energising and detoxifying and was inspired by the art of Japanese bathing and holistic Japanese spa treatments.
*About the Product*
Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Body Cream is a cooling body cream which blends skin softening Rice proteins, detoxifying seaweed and traditional soothing Japanese ingredients into a feather light cream that absorbs instantly to soften and condition you skin leaving it silky smooth and hydrated. This body cream is easily absorbed and a non greasy formulation. It is the perfect antidote to tiredness and lack of energy and is ideal for use as part of an overall detox plan.
Citrus oils are invigorates and stimulates the mind and body.
Etsuko Japanese tonic has highly effective moisturisation properties.
Rice proteins bind moisture to the skin to hydrate and soothe.
Seaweed extracts detoxifies the skin and removes its impurities.
Wasabi extract provides antioxidant protection.
In order to apply this body cream, you need to scoop a fair bit of the product into your hand from the tub if you like to lather it on like I do. This is because a little doesn't really go a long way with the body cream as it soaks into your skin rather quickly. I have noticed that this is a bit of a trend with the Sanctuary creams and body butters.
To apply this, you should smooth the cream firmly onto clean skin in small circular motions for the best effect. This invigorating body cream is only suitable to use on your body, so stay well clear of your face when using this product, in particular any contact with your eyes.
*Price and Availability*
Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Body Cream is priced at £7.29. This is for a 300ml pot of the body cream. If you don't want a full sized pot, there is also a small travel size 50ml available at the price of £2.29. Obviously, when you consider value for money, you are better off buying the larger size but to see if you like the body cream you may be better of buying the travel one.
You can purchase this body cream exclusively from any Boots store. If you don't have a Boots store that is local to you, it is also available to buy online at www.boots.com or directly from The Sanctuary Spa shop online at www.thesanctuary.co.uk.
There are also a number of different products that you can buy in this Sento range which are also luxurious and make your skin feeling super sexy.
The packaging: If you have used the original Sanctuary Body Butter before, you will be familiar with the way that the body cream is packaged. It is a clear rub tub with a clear twist lid. I have always been a fan of this type of packaging as it allows you to scoop out easily the amount of body cream that you wish to. And when you get towards the end of the tub, you can easily get the last bits left from the side of the pot. The packaging is straightforward but sophisticated and stylish and it is still recognisable to the Sanctuary brand despite it being a different range.
Colour, texture and smell: Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Body Cream is a light colour with a hint of green. The texture of this body cream is quick thin yet luxurious at the same time. The light feel of the product allows it to easily soak into your skin.
The smell of this body cream is truly divine. It smells strongly of citrus therefore if you don't like this smell don't even think of buying the product as it would be pointless. The scent of this product lingers on your skin for a while after application.
Does it energise and detoxify your skin? Yes it definitely does this. The smell of the citrus seems to energise my skin. When I have applied this body cream it makes me feel energised and wanting to go out for a run.
Does it soften and condition you skin leaving it feeling silky smooth and hydrated? It does indeed. My skin always feels fantastically soft and cared for after I have applied this body cream. I feel truly pampered when using this product. It's great to put on if you are having a bit of a bad day as it is something simple that will lift your mood because you'll feel special and great.
Longevity of the product: A tub of Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Body Cream will last you approximately two months if used once a week. Is that all I hear you ask? I'm afraid it is if you use a fair quantity of the product like I do. And the effects of the body cream are very positive so you won't regret having made this purchase as your skin will feel smooth and revitalised.
*Would I Recommend This Product?*
I would most definitely recommend this fantastic body cream brought to us by the Sanctuary. It is yet another item they sell that is set to lower my bank balance every few months! I cannot even begin to explain how amazing the citrus smell is in this body cream and for this alone I would recommend using this body cream. If it is a body cream with a gorgeous smell that leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated then I strongly recommend this product to you.
Sanctuary Sento Invigorating Body Cream is a luxurious item that every lady should try at least once. It is the ultimate body cream that leaves you feeling completely relaxed. If you don't try this, you will have missed out big time.
