Sanctuary Deep Cleanse Facial in a Box

You probably know this already, but I do love a good facial.  A while ago, Sanctuary Spa released a facial range including 2 variants of Facials in a Box which is pretty much as it sounds; everything you need to give yourself an at home facial.  I loved the idea of this, so I bought their Skin Brightening one (the other option is Youth Boosting), gave it a test run and was really happy with the results.  If you’re not a beauty hoarder like me then this is a great and cost-effective way of making sure you have all the products you would need to give yourself an at home facial.  The box also comes with really detailed instructions on how to go about administering the facial, so it’s a winner if you’re new to this sort of treatment.

Each box has enough, in theory, for one facial, but realistically you don’t need to use all of it in one go and can probably stretch it out over several facials.  All products in the boxes are also available individually – both small sized and full sized – so you can add to it as and when you run out of product.  It’s kind of like a facial starter kit, and in my mind, a really great idea.

The Brightening range is green themed whereas the Youth Boosting range is pink themed.  When I was browsing the Sanctuary line at Boots a while ago, I noticed that there were lots of mini versions of a blue themed range which appeared to be aimed at my skin type (oily, blemish-prone etc) but no coordinating facial in a box, so I’m really pleased that Sanctuary have finally released the matching version so that us oily skin types can get in on the action.  I only tried the Brightening Facial in a Box because I was so keen to try it out, so even though it wasn’t the right one for my specific skin concerns, I still went ahead with it.  It was a great treatment and definitely brightened my skin, but if I were to prioritise my skin concerns then the blemishes would be far higher up the list than the brightness of my skin.

Anyway, I’m not too sure when the Deep Cleanse Facial in a Box arrives at Boots – I hope it’s soon – but as soon as it does I’ll give it a whirl and report my finds.  If it’s the same price as the other two then it’ll be around £16.  The other two can be found here.

    This looks really good, and sounds pretty easy to do. I did see this in Boots, but wasn’t sure about it, but think I will give it a whirl now. x
