Sanctuary Spa Hot Sugar Scrub

I love this stuff! There is seriously nothing better to unwind on a lazy weekend or after a nice workout. Now I have a collection of body scrubs and exfoliators to an extent that you can call be an addict or a hoarder, as per your preference. But I just have one thing to say in my defence - a girls gotta have variety!

Now I am not sure why but Sanctuary Spa products are not talked about as much as Soap & Glory for instance. I am not here to make comparisons but I feel Sanctuary Spa is just so elegant, mature and sophisticated as a brand compared to the rest when it comes to highstreet skincare brands. If you're looking for Christmas pressies for an aunt or your mum, get one of their beautifully boxed gift sets and I promise they will love it.

Back to the Hot Sugar scrub. First of all, it's got a different consistency where there's more of the milky liquid and fewer granules. The granules are also extremely minute hence forming a film when on your skin and working better at sloughing off dead skin cells. Secondly, it has a warming sensation when initially rubbed into the skin which makes one feel like they are actually in a spa. It also helps open pores and give a thorough exfoliation. The warming sensation is what I use this most for, especially when I have a body ache or sore muscles.

It leaves skin tremendously smooth and brighter. I can't sometimes believe there's so much gunk on the skin preventing real skin from showing through! Note to self: Need to exfoliate often!

It has that typical spa like smell that I cannot describe as usual but you know what I mean right? A huge 550 gm pot for £11.25 is great in my opinion. Stop by it's aisle when you're in Boot's next time.
