Beauty product of the week: Sanctuary Spa 4 Day Moisture Oil Mist
The lazy girl's way of staying moisturised all week long.
Why we love this product
It really does keep your skin moisturised for a long, long time! It's effective, innovative and smart.
I have pretty dry skin, so skipping moisturiser for just one day means I walk around with lizard legs. Moisturising every single day gets tedious, though, especially when it's a warm day and you get that sweaty, slimy feeling, or when you're trying to pull skinny jeans over your sticky legs.
If you can relate, then this body oil is the answer you need. After applying this product, my legs stay scale-free for about three to four days. A little goes a long way too. I use about two sprays per calf and I find that's more than enough.
It's made with a blend of olive oil and camelina seed oil (aka gold of pleasure oil). Olive oil has a very high antioxidant quantity, which helps fight ageing, and camelina seed oil is a very rich source of omegas, which helps your skin hold moisture.
It's part water and part oil, with the water adding hydration and the oil blend helping to moisturise, in addition to locking water and emollients into the skin. The two components naturally separate so you'll need to give it a good shake before using. It has a lovely fragrance that lingers lightly during the first day of use and the golden oil has flecks of gold that add a sheen to your skin upon application.
I also love that it comes in a spray bottle. One of my biggest beefs with oil products is the packaging and applicators. I hate having to pour the oil out and struggling for it to not seep through my cupped hands. With this, you just shake and spray. No mess, no stress.
This one is super affordable, especially considering how long the bottle actually lasts. It retails from just $10-$15 depending on where you buy it.
