Product Review || My Sanctuary collection – Sanctuary Spa Facial

Sanctuary Spa
Sanctuary Spa Products

My first encounter with ‘The Sanctuary Spa’ was during my 18th birthday. I spent the day at the The Sanctuary Spa in convent garden with a few of my girlfriends and then they closed down :(. I was so devasted when I found out but luckily for me they still sell all their products online. So I can bring the spa to my home.

I wanted to get a facial before my 21st birthday but I had no time so I decided ‘Why not buy the products and use them at home?’… and so I did.

My skin has a variety of things going on with it. The main ones being

Large pores

Frequent breakouts

Dryness (Oily to Combination skin)

Slight Hyper pigmentation.

Dull skin

I’ve been able to tackle a few of them and I’m still figuring out what works best for me but my major concern for my birthday was my skin looking dull. So I ordered the skin brightening kit and a thermal mud mask from The Sancturay Spa and it works wonders! It’s been almost 2 months since I started using it so I guess it’s time for a review.

#Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser

This product is always the first thing I use when I’m about to use any of the other products. It has a very pleasant feel and smell to it. It smells like a mix of Honey and Milk which makes it so nice to use. It comes with a Handkerchief which serve as the cloth to be used for the “Polishing” .

Recommended use: Daily

#Radiant Exfoliator

This product is also great and as the name implies, an exfoliator. Exfoliators are essential skin care products especially for Acne prone skin. This is because Acne prone skin sheds extra dead skin cells in comparison to other skin types and these dead cells don’t easily fall away. When these cells get into the skin pores, they clog it up and this is what causes breakouts.

I can definitely say the frequency of my breakouts has reduced significantly since I started using this product. I also use it after using the Hot Cloth Cleanser but not on the same day as when I use the mud mask

Recommended use: 2-3 Times a week

#Thermal mud mask

I love this product. Period! It makes my skin feel so good and purified after use. It heats up on application and washes off very easily. Recommended use is twice a week which works for me. I use it after cleansing my skin with the Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser.

Recommended use: 2 times a week




#Pore Refining Toner

I started using this a few weeks ago and honestly I can’t say there has been much of a difference of there hasn’t been. I guess it’s just another addition to my skin care routine for now. If anything changes, I’d let you know.

Recommended use: Daily


#Illuminating Moisture Lotion

This lotion is very good at doing what it does. It not only makes your skin stay soft but also adds a glow to your skin that doesn’t look or feel oily.

Recommended use: Daily
