I got this box as part of a big Boots haul a few weeks ago. I’ve been using an Origins scrub and face mask but wanted to try something different so I picked up this handy kit. With 5 travel sized products inside I put it to the test.
First of all, I love the fact that on the inside cover there’s a full set of instructions on how to use the products, complete with pictures! It even goes so far as to say how long to leave the products on for and what motions to use during application. Result.
Step 1 – Fresh Faced Purifying Wash – Smells divine and feels just like the kind of product you would use at the spa. A rich, soapy texture that doesn’t really foam, it feels really wet. A luxury product.
Step 2 – Exfoliating Pore Refiner – A white cream with small blue beads inside; this looks a little like Clean and Clear! Although this does the job, it could do with having a higher density of beads inside and with having a few microparticles inside too. Not as luxurious as the wash
Step 3 – 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask – A self warming clay mask to be used all over the face and left on; very thick and gooey.
Step 4 – Blemish Serum – Apply this to any blemishes after the mask has been washed off. This has a silicone texture to it and although it contains salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid, didn’t work on my skin and rubbed off.
Step 5 - Matte Perfecting Hydra Lotion – A light, cooling lotion which is non sticky and matte. Simply pat a tiny amount of this onto the face and relax.
It took around 20 minutes to administer a decent at home facial. Although not all the products were right for my skin type, I think this is a great little box for anyone looking for a fast treat. It’s so convenient to get everything you need in one box J
Have you tried The Sanctuary Deep Cleanse kit? What did you guys think?
