With our latest brand of the week, Sanctuary, it’s time to discover new ways of relaxing and pampering head-to-toe. One of the most popular in the bath and body category, Sanctuary will be showcasing a new product each day this week, so don’t forget to keep checking back to select all the products needed to unwind (wine not included) …
As one of the most celebrated bath and body brands, Sanctuary are on a mission to get women to relax, breathe and #LetGo and we’re totally on board. In a survey by the brand, 80% of women divulge that they put too much pressure on themselves to be perfect, and that’s definitely something that I (Jem – Blog Editor – Hi!) can empathize with on many levels.
In a time where the #GirlBoss movement is going from strength to strength, constantly striving to be the best version of yourself in all areas of your life seems to be the key ambition, so much so, it’s very easy to lose track of simply just being. As a result, we’re often guilty of not observing our surroundings, switching off our brains (which should mean no emails at 11pm, ladies!) and focusing on the overarching idea of mindfulness and wellbeing. That has to change!
In celebration of Sanctuary’s Brand of the Week takeover, I’m sharing some of the ways I like to relax, and some of my favourite Sanctuary Spa products that support me in letting go.
SUDS AND HAPPINESS
Is there anything more relaxing than coming home after a strenuous day at the office and having a long soak in the tub? If there is, I’ve not found it. There’s something to be said for feeling clean and washing away the stresses of the day and Sanctuary’s Body Wash is a firm favourite for sudding up. The refreshing infusion of essential oils and jojoba beads gently transforms into delicately fragranced foam, enveloping wet skin and leaving you feeling cleansed, moisturised and silky smooth. This product truly provides a guilt-free way to feel your best, relax, breathe, let go and find your sanctuary.
PEACE AND QUIET
Sometimes, the only way I can really shut off my mind from going into overdrive, is taking time out to lay down, close my eyes and listen to some soothing music (whale sounds, anyone?). While doing so, I like to relax my skin as well as my mind and this is where Sanctuary’s Nourishing Rose Petal Hydrogel Sheet Mask is very much welcomed by my face. Containing a complex of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, this instantly skin soothing mask helps boost moisture levels, reduces redness and helps skin recover from exposure to pollution and other daily aggressors – the perfect way to take 15 minutes out to relax.
THE EXTRA 5 MINS IN BED
I am very much guilty of not wanting to get up in the morning. In fact, I have never been a morning person so anything I can do to minimise the time it takes me to get ready in the morning is a huge plus. Enter Sanctuary’s Wet Skin Moisture Miracle, the perfect product for those of us who have little time in the mornings. Faster absorbing and up to twice as quick as a regular lotion, this is the ultimate moisturiser when you are short on time. This unique way of moisturising capitalises on skin’s peak hydration moment (when it’s wet) and is clinically proven to lock in double the hydration for instantly softer and smoother skin. Now, go hit the snooze button!
