Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub. This is a single-use scrub, and it was part of one of the Sanctuary Spa Christmas gift sets I bought for half price on Boxing Day. This salt scrub contains Dead Sea salts and a blend of jojoba, coconut and almond oils. It promises to exfoliate and nourish skin in one go.

There are 2 ways to use this scrub. If you use it in the shower, rub the scrub into wet skin. But you can also use it in the bath. In this case, rub it over dry skin, then carefully (!) step into the bath and let the warm water melt away the salts!

I’ve given this scrub a try, and I think it’s excellent. It’s a typical salt scrub – it’s a very effective exfoliant, but it also nourishes the skin. I enjoyed it very much! The fragrance is the typical Sanctuary Spa fragrance. So whilst this scrub contains coconut oil, I’m happy to report that it doesn’t smell of coconut at all.

What else? Of course, this type of products leaves the shower or bath slippery, so please be super careful and get your partner, child, house-mate, etc to clean the shower or bath tub. ūüėĀ Hey, this is a spa treatment. You’re not supposed to clean your own bathroom right after!

If you’re interested, Sanctuary Spa Salt Scrub is available as 650g for ¬£14.

Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime which I found for half price at my local Tesco. You’re supposed to use 2-3 handfuls of these bath salts for a cleansing and revitalising bath.

I tried these bath salts recently, and I love them! I don’t drink alcohol, so I have no idea what pink gin is supposed to taste or smell like, but these bath salts have a strong and crisp pink lime fragrance which smells like summer. Delicious! These bath salts are a bit drying – not worse than a normal shower gel though, so I mix them with a good handful of Westlab’s Himalayan bath salts which are amazing for the skin.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these bath salts. Unfortunately, they’re a limited edition, but I’ll pick up another pack soon. If you’re interested, Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime are available as 1kg for ¬£5.99. I paid ¬£2.99.

Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot. These bath salts promise to “restore calm and serenity amidst modern life”. You’re supposed to use 2-3 handfuls of these salts for a nice, relaxing bath.

I think these bath salts are good, but they’re not my favourites. I like the mix of epsom and Himalayan salts, and I’m happy that these bath salts have their own scent. However, the scent is quite strong, and it will linger in the bathroom for hours. I’m fine with the scent, but not everyone loves incense and bergamot. I also found these bath salts to be a bit drying.

In order to be able to enjoy these bath salts more, I’ll now mix these (half and half) with my regular Westlab Himalayan Salts which make my skin feel amazing. If you’re interested, Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot are available as 1kg for about ¬£6. I paid ¬£2.99 (half price offer at Boots).
