Sanctuary Spa Limited Edition Summer Gift Bag

Thursday, July 23, 2020

Sanctuary Spa has been a staple in my bathroom cabinet since I was a teenager, which was too long ago and it's not something I want to think about as I approach my 30's. Without fail, every birthday or Christmas I would very happily receive a Sanctuary Spa gift set from my parents, friends, cousins or aunties as it was a firm favourite with everyone, myself included. There are more photos of the set including the towel and bag on my Instagram stories!

I was very happy to receive their new limited edition summer gift set which includes the watermelon shower gel, watermelon body scrub, watermelon jelly in-shower body moisturiser and the watermelon mist, all of which are full sized products. As well as all of the summer scented bath and body products you also receive a large gift bag (that would be an ideal beach or pool bag) and a cute watermelon print beach towel. I think this gift would be perfect for a coast or beach staycation this summer. 
*Sanctuary Spa Watermelon In-Shower Radiance Jelly 
I'll start with one of my favourites from the set, the radiance jelly which is an after-shower moisturiser that is very similar to their existing moisture miracle which I reviewed as part of a Latest In Beauty box last year. I have received a couple of the smaller sizes of the moisture miracle and I loved them so I knew I'd like this version too. 

I love the packaging of all Sanctuary Spa products and these are no different but the scent is. I personally adore the original Sanctuary Spa scent as it is not only lovely but it is also very nostalgic and almost comforting. I do like the new summery watermelon scent as it is very refreshing but I do prefer the original scent overall. I love using products like this as I am quite lazy when it comes to body moisturising so in-shower and quick options are always what I'll reach for over a traditional body lotion. 

*Sanctuary Spa Watermelon Body Scrub
Even though I tend to skip body lotion out of laziness, I always love to use a body scrub as who doesn't love the feeling of squeaky clean and smooth skin! I do have a few favourite body scrubs, however, I find that most just aren't...scrubby enough. If the body scrub doesn't feel like it is sanding my skin then I'm going to be disappointed. Thankfully, the Sanctuary Spa scrub is a great combination of scrubby particles and shower gel. The scrub leaves my skin incredibly smooth and soft but with a subtle fruity scent that I like more with each use. While I love the radiance jelly, I think the scrub might actually be my favourite product from this cute summer set. 
*Sanctuary Spa Watermelon Shower Gel 
I think that out of all of the Sanctuary Spa products available in their range, the shower gel and the salt scrub have to be their most beloved and famous products. I know that both the scrub and shower gels are my favourites from their extensive range, closely followed by the beautifully designed gift sets! The watermelon shower gel is just as lovely to use and effective as their original but again it has the new summery fruity scent that I thought I wouldn't love but I'm enjoying more and more. 

*Sanctuary Spa Watermelon Face and Body Mist
Last but not least is the smallest item in the set and it is an item I haven't tried from Sanctuary Spa previously. I don't think I've tried any of their skincare before but I definitely want to especially the masks as if you've been following me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand) you'll know that I've been loving using face masks much more during lockdown. I don't use face mists very often, unless we have a rare but glorious heatwave in the UK so I wasn't sure if I'd like this product but it actually surprised me. The spray is incredible fine unlike others I've tried that have felt like a water gun to the face! It's such a light, fine and refreshing mist with a lovely scent that would be great for cooling down on a hot summers day.
