Sanctuary Spa Sleep-In-A-Box

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

Oh Boots 3-for-2, I do love you. I needed to pick up a third item and ended up going for Sanctuary Spa's Sleep-In-A-Box. I've been wondering whether to try the Comforting Night Butter for ages now, and I'm quite tempted by some of the other products in the range. Sleep-In-A-Box contains four sample size products so it seemed like the perfect way to try everything.

Sanctuary Spa Sleep-In-A-Box

Everything is scented with a blend of essential oils, including ylang ylang, frankincense and patchouli. The combination is very calming and it makes a nice change from lavender, which is the scent I usually associate with these kind of products.

So, what's inside the box?

Sanctuary Spa Sleep-In-A-Box (products)

Calming Luxury Bath Float, 75ml

A creamy bath product that produces lots of lovely, fragrant bubbles. Perfect after a long day.


Restoring Body Oil, 5ml

I was really disappointed with this.Not the product itself so much  it's lovely as a body oil  but the way it's presented.

The lid on the tube snaps off, so you have no choice but to use all the oil in one go, or pour it into a separate container, and who can be bothered to faff around doing that? 5ml is a lot more than you would think.

It did make my skin feel soft, but I wouldn't recommend using it on hair like Sanctuary suggest, as it made mine really greasy and stringy (and I only used a drop on the ends!)

Smoothing Silk Polish, 50ml

Not a fan. It's a polish, so it's supposed to be gentle, but it's like a body wash with a couple of exfoliating beads in it, so it doesn't make much of a difference.

I'm not really a fan of harsh scrubs either but I at least like to feel like they've done something. Others may feel differently  it depends what you look for in an exfoliator.

Comforting Night Butter, 50ml

I'm very fussy about body butters. Some of them are too thick and greasy, but luckily this one sinks in pretty quickly and makes my skin feel soft and hydrated.

This is probably my favourite product of the bunch, and I can see myself purchasing the full size tub when my spending ban is over.

Sanctuary Spa Sleep-In-A-Box costs £12 and is available from Boots. I think it would make a great gift for someone who needs a bit of relaxation, or you could do what I did and use it to try out the products before buying the full-size versions.

Have you tried any of the products from Sleep-In-A-Box?
