Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub Review.

A picture of sanctuary spa salt scrub

As an avid fake tan user, it's always important for me to exfoliate my body. I love buying and trying out different exfoliators, to see which is the best at removing those stubborn patches of fake tan that I need to get rid of. Sanctuary Spa are a brand I usually do not buy products from as I love my Soap and Glory; but this Salt Scrub was a Christmas gift from my mum last year - and only now I'm getting round to starting it!
The Sanctuary Salt Scrub is "a sumptuous blend of skin polishing dead sea salts wrapped in moisturising coconut, jojoba and sweet almond oils to refine and resurface the texture of the skin and leave it super smooth." The Salt Scrub is a body exfoliator to be used once or twice a week. The scrub itself is beautifully packaged in a glass tub. The scrub is in a 650g jar, giving you plenty of product to use for the price you are paying. The flip lid makes it easy to open and close and ensures there's no unnecessary squeezing out of a bottle when you're getting to the end of it! It's easy to just pop your fingers in and scoop up as much as you need to use. The salt texture of the scrub did give me that 'eek' feeling when I scooped it up at first - you know the feeling when something goes through you? Like nails on a blackboard? Once its on my hands and I'm ready to apply it, I got used to it and enjoyed using it.
The scrub itself is more abrasive than your usual body scrub due to it being a salt scrub. As I started to exfoliate, I could feel it working straight away. It has a luxurious feel to it with its moisturising oils. The best thing about using the scrub was that I only needed a small amount to cover all over my arms and neck - where my fake tan just loves to settle in and cause me grief! After exfoliating and drying off, my skin did feel a lot more moisturised and in better condition. It was easier for me to scrub off the bits of remaining tan and I was really pleased with the good condition it left my skin in. The only negative I can say about the product, is that it did make a mess in the shower. The grains settled easily onto the floor of the shower, so obviously I had to make sure I cleaned it up or I would have gone flying!
Sanctuary Spa's Salt Scrub retails at £11.50 for a 650g tub. Initially this may seem a bit pricey just for a body scrub, but it does exactly what it promises and a little goes a long way. You can find the product at Boots here (Currently on 3 for 2).

  1. This looks like such a nice scrub, I've been wanting to try it for ages but always miss the 3 for 2 deals. I never thought it would be worth the money but I'm glad you think it is! Must try it soon.

  2. I am loving Sanctuary Spa products at the moment - the thermal detox mask and pore refining toner are amazing! I will look out for this next time I go shopping :-)
