Sanctuary Spa: Winter Facial In – A – Box

Beauty/ Review

I was recently sent the Winter Facial In – A – Box from Sanctuary Spa to review.  I really love Sanctuary Spa and it’s always nice to get a bit of something for me!

Winter Facial in a Box

The winter facial in – a – box contains:

Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser 15ml

Muslin Cloth

5 Min Detox Sachet 15ml ( although in mine was a Moisture Boosting Mask that you leave on for 10 mins so not sure if this was a mistake)

Lift & Brighten Eye 5ml

Radiance Exfoliator 15ml

Stop the Clock 15ml

Firming Youth Serum

Winter Facial in a Box Contents Step by Step Guide
Up Close

The set comes with a detailed step by step guide of how to do the facial and it is really lovely and leaves your skin feeling AMAZING but obviously it is never going to be as relaxing as going to a spa for a facial as you have to keep getting up to rinse etc – the best way I found is to run a deep hot bath surrounded by candles and submerge yourself into that and do it there! Also make sure the kids are either out, asleep or have someone responsible enough to watch them for a goof 30 minutes because you really do not want to be disturbed!

The Sanctuary Spa Winter Facial In – A – Box is £20.00 and worth every penny; even better when you can get it in certain stores for 3 for 2 😉

Pretty Nails

Beauty/ Nails

I had gel overlays done a couple of weeks ago in time for my trip to the Mad Blog Awards and I really love them! Until my mid twenties I always bit my nails and then when I stopped I took great care of them for ages but with two little ones running around I just found it so hard to make myself stop and do them, well now Maxwell goes to playschool a two mornings a week I suddenly have a few hours free so I thought I would treat myself – having nice nails makes me feel so much nicer and more feminine!

My nails!

I’ve never had gel nails before, I had acrylics about 13 years ago but other than that I have always just done my own (or not) – So I’m having my in-fills done on Thursday and I’ve been looking around on Pinterest for some ideas! There is some really AMAZING nail art out there but I much prefer the more natural looking!

There are so many really pretty ways to do your nails nowadays and I really love all of the above! Do you have a favourite? I think mine is the middle one 🙂


I’ll take a photo as soon as I have had them done to show you what I decide on xx
