If there's a brand I adore, perhaps even more than my beloved Soap and Glory, it's Sanctuary. As with many of the skincare brands I use today, it was my mum who introduced me to Sanctuary products a few years ago. I love the scent of all of their products and don't think that they're too badly priced to say just how lovely the products are. They also are against animal testing, which is always a massive plus in my eyes. I thought I'd do a little review of three of the products I currently own, however I have tried a number of products in the past including the foaming shower mousse, foaming bath soak, bath oil and body mist, and they are all as wonderful as each other!
Sanctuary Body ScrubI think I'd have to say this is my favourite body scrub. I tend to use it a few times a week as I love how it leaves my skin feeling smooth and fresh.I sometimes find with body scrubs that little bits in the gel feel really horrible and rough. I know they're supposed to be slightly rough to exfoliate your skin, but you don't want them to be too harsh! This body scrub is very gentle, so really appeals to me. It has a gorgeous, sweet scent made up of patchouli & orange oil.

Sanctuary Body Butter
This intensive skin moisturiser contains cocoa buttery, shea butter and macadamia nut oil, and smells absolutely divine!
It is my favourite 'body butter' to use, as it soaks into the skin really quickly and doesn't have that sticky or wet feel that
you sometimes get with body lotion. I can see why it is called a butter as it has quite a thick creamy texture, but it doesn't
feel heavy on the skin which is good!

Sanctuary Body Wash
Again, I don't really have anything bad to say about this product, I absolutely love it! At the moment I am alternating between this, my body scrub and the strawberry shower cream which I featured in my holiday essentials post. This product feels like a really runny gel, perhaps between an oil and a gel? I don't know. It's beautifully scented once again, containing essential oils and spices. I find the gentle aromatic smell quite refreshing, but not too overpowering, which is great for evening showers, when you want to wind down and relax.
