You already know coconut oil is pretty magical and has so many…
If you’ve been browsing your local Shoppers Drug Mart aisles, you probably noticed Being by Sanctuary Spa* pop-up on the shelves. I mean, as soon as I saw that packaging, I knew I had to try it.
Being is a cruelty-free bath and body line out of the UK that has the best motto: “We are ballsy beauty, we stand for something, we fall for nothing.” But what really sold it for me, besides the cool packaging and delicious scents, was that they make their products for the baddest bitches with the biggest heart. (S000, me?)
I was lucky enough to get a few products to try from the brand, aaaand I’m hooked. From their Salted Caramel & Macadamia line, I tried the body scrub.
The Salted Caramel and Macadamia Body Scrub ($20 CAD) smells so rich, nutty and sweet, almost like an ice cream sundae. The formula is made from macadamia shells (no microbeads here!) as well as sweet almond oil and honey. This doesn’t break up that quickly in water, so you get a really great exfoliating scrub.
From the Chilli Mango and Tonka Bean line, I got this delicious hand cream ($10 CAD). This scent is unlike anything I have tried. It’s sweet, tangy with a hit of underlying spice from the chilli. The cream is made with sweet almond oil which nourishes the skin and leaves it feeling soft without greasy residue.
The Hibiscus and Coconut Water scent is probably my favourite. It’s fresh with sweet florals and a hint of nuttiness. This definitely reminds me of Hawaii.
The Body Lotion is only $16 CAD and you get A LOT of it. The formula is made with shea butter and coconut oil and has a non-tacky, non-greasy finish and a scent that lingers for hours.
Now let’s talk about this Shower Burst ($15 CAD). It’s a hybrid between a foaming body wash and a shave gel, I’d say. You spray it from the can and it looks just like a shave gel but…
Once you rub it on your body, it foams up like a hydrating body wash. This stuff is AMAZING and actually perfect for shaving your legs. It leaves a fresh, sweet floral scent behind too.
There is one more scents available too, Cloudberry & Lychee, which I will definitely be picking up to try. See, sometimes bold, funky packaging does lead to amazing products. Have you tried Being by Sanctuary Spa?
