Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 body sprays I picked up a few months ago – Boots Being By Sanctuary Spa Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Body Mist and Boots Being By Sanctuary Spa Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean Body Mist.
Being By Sanctuary Spa is a relatively new body care collection – there are shower gels, body scrubs, body butters, body mists, cosmetics bags… and so on. I would have liked to try the body butters, but they’re £10 each – and I think that’s just too expensive for a run-of-the-mill moisturiser. But when the body mists were on special, I bought 2! So let me tell you if these body mists are any good. 🙂
Boots Being By Sanctuary Spa Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Body Mist smells of lychee, berries and water lilies. It smells cheap. It’s the definition of a cheap body mist. I tried to get rid of it, but – surprise, surprise – none of my colleagues wanted it. I’ll pass it on to my teenage relative.
Boots Being By Sanctuary Spa Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean Body Mist is alright, and I think I’ll finish it. This body mist smells of mangoes and fruit punch. There’s nothing even remotely spicy about it. It’s a random fruity body spray. If you’re looking for a lovely mango fragrance, you must try Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray.
By the way, the Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean Body Mist wasn’t my first choice. I actually picked up the Salted Caramel & Macadamia Nut Body Mist from the same collection because the matching body butter smelled delicious. However, I returned the caramel & macadamia body mist the next day because it smelled of burned bread. It was disgusting.
I don’t think I’ll be picking up any other Being By Sanctuary Spa products. The entire line seems to be way too expensive for what it is. If you’re interested… Being By Sanctuary Spa Body Mists are available as 100ml for £5 each. I picked them up when they were on special (I believe it was a Save 1/3 offer).

Hi there! A few weeks ago I bought lots of new products. And today’s post is about two of them – Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple and Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Marula & Argan.
These two body mist are made in the UK, they’re paraben-free, and they contain real fruit extracts! This sounds great, I know. But I haven’t told you about the best thing yet. OK, the best thing is that these 150ml body mists are 79p only at Home Bargains! Now let me tell you if they’re any good.
The Passion Fruit & Pineapple body mist is very fruity. It’s tropical and tangy – like passion fruits. And it’s also sweet and juicy – like pineapples! Whilst this body mist isn’t particularly long-lasting (it’s just a body mist after all), the fruity scent is refreshing and very pleasant while it lasts.
The Sensual Marula & Argan body mist is very nice. It smells warm, cuddly, feminine, and yes, sensual! It lasts longer than the fruity body mist, so if I douse myself in it, it lingers for almost half a day.
I think these body mists are really nice. They’re certainly as good as the considerably more expensive body mists that you can buy on the high street. Sure, these body mists aren’t ‘real’ perfumes, so you can’t expect them to last for long on your skin. However, they cling to fabrics, so I spray them on my scarves as well. 🙂
I would definitely recommend these body mists if you’re looking for a cheap pick-me-up or if you want a new body mist to pop into your handbag. I also think these body mists would be great for young teenage girls who are just getting into fragrances – that’s because these two scents are pleasant, they’re not too strong, and they’re cheap!
Have you tried these body mists? Or would you like to try them? Have you ever had anything from this brand? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!
