If you love sweet, delicious scents and skin quenching formulas then you might want to check out Sanctuary Spa at Shoppers Drug Mart. This cute new brand from the U.K. will help protect you from winter’s wrath while inducing some serious hunger pangs.
The collection includes many mouth-watering concoctions like Salted Caramel & Macadamia, Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean, Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom and Hibiscus & Coconut Water. If that doesn’t make you want to lather-up from head-to-toe I don’t know what will!
I’m not really sure what a Cloudberry is but I do know that it smells amazing! Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I realized that the Shower Burst (in the hairspray canister) is actually a fluffy foaming body wash ($15.00). Simply apply some on your favorite bath puff or loofa and let the yummy bubbles cleanse and invigorate you. The Body Lotion ($16.00) in this scent is my favorite (it smells like ripe, juicy berries) and the lightweight, non-greasy texture seeps in quickly to soften and deeply nourish.
If you need a little more hydration during the winter months, the Salted Caramel & Macadamia Body Butter ($20.00) is rich, conditioning and scrumptious! To me it smells like cookies and cream with a lush formula that totally rejuvenates dry skin for long-lasting suppleness. After a long, hectic day, unwind and relax by sinking into a warm, delectable bath that smells good enough to eat. The fragrant Bubble Bath ($16.00) helps foam-away, dirt, oil and impurities while your stress just melts away.
If you find yourself craving warmer weather this season why not transport yourself to the tropics with the indulgent scent of Hibiscus and Coconut water (I can already feel the island breeze). The Hand Cream ($10.00) is enriched with emollients to keep nails and cuticles healthy so you can show off that cute mani. It is also the perfect purse-size for moisturizing on-the-go.
Don’t forget to replenish your skin by buffing-away dead cells with the refreshing Body Scrub ($20.00) that looks like a decadent strawberry smoothie. The exfoliating particles are composed of coconut shavings that remove dry, rough skin to leave you feeling smooth and silky.
Sanctuary Spa also sells fruitylicious Body Mists for just $10.00. The Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean is one of my favorite summer/vacation scents although it smells more like peaches and tends to fade with wear (good thing it’s travel size).
This fun, sugary collection is geared towards teens and young adults but there is no age limit on smelling delightful. The products are available at Shoppers Drug Mart or online at beautyboutique.ca and don’t forget to load up on holiday gifts and stocking stuffers!
