Since I started writing many moons ago, I´ve discovered a whole new world of beauty & fashion brands. If you are a follower you are probably already aware of this by now because I am excited to tell you when I try a brand for the first time. Some of the stuff I´ve discovered goes from beauty cult brands to randomly less known ones. Its always fun to do this as most of the time, I´ve found some worthy finds.

I thought it would be appropriate to classify these type of posts as first-timers as I am sure there is still a lot of new brands to for me to try and happily report back at you so we can enjoy the experience together!

In this post, I am happy to tell you about my experience trying the UK brand Sanctuary Spa, which if my research is correct, is an actual spa located in Covent Garden, London. Considering all their years of hands on experience with skin care, I can totally understand why it is some sort of beauty cult classic in the UK and it makes total sense that I´ve read about it everywhere… with all that buzz I had to get me some of that.

I´ve been wanting to try it for a couple of months but somehow I hadn´t until I ran out of my all time favourite face wash and I wanted to swap to a different one because, as I´ve mentioned  before, my face has changed from combination to slightly dry and a bit dull. This was the perfect chance to give a different brand a try and it had to be recommended by someone trustable or a well known source… I must confess, anything skin care that has to touch my face has to be something that I really trust, the whole idea of changing to a new product was kind of scary but it had to be done.

At first I thought I made the wrong choice as it is aimed at normal to combination skins but I really wanted to keep my face free of blemishes so I endeavoured to put it to the test, for a while at least. Its been just over a month since I started using this purifying wash and I can report nothing but good things to say about it. It has vitamin E for a perfect boost of radiance to any skin type, especially the dull skins like mine, it also has cucumber and chamomile which the perfect combo to soothe the skin. Every time I use it my skin feels fresh, super soft and hydrated. There is never any need to freak out trying to apply moisturiser right after I´ve washed it (this started to happen a lot since my skin decided to change) and it definitely does´t feel stretched or to greasy.

I also love its smooth, almost silk like consistency  a very light, liquid formula with a lovely and subtle smell of rose that blends super quickly with the water forming a very light lather. I do have to say, I love a foamy consistency but this one is very efficient, even without a lot of foam. 
It´s price makes it even better as it was £9 only and i have been told that they are always included in some great deals around the holiday season.  A great product for all skin types especially combination and those in the need of a radiance boost.
