Sanctuary Spa 7 Day Moisture Miracle Oil Balm

Now that the cold weather has well and truly set in, the wind, rain and cold temperatures get to work on our skin, drying it out, making it sore, chapping our lips - it's not a good look. Every Winter I up my moisturising routine, I change my skincare, reaching for more balms and oils than usual and go through endless amounts of lip balm.

A product that has worked its way into my routine this year is this oil balm from Sanctuary Spa. The name of the product was enough to sell it to me, I'm loving balms at the moment... it feels as though they didn't really exist until maybe a year or so ago (although I'm sure they did) but recently I've been using balms for everything! 

This is a multi purpose product which can be used on hands, feet, heels, elbows, your face... anywhere you need a little moisture. The consistency is very thick, but a little goes a very long way as once it's applied it transforms from a balm into an oil on the skin, which sinks in really quickly and gives some instant relief to sore, dry areas. It feels really luxurious to use, and as it contains ingredients including Beeswax, Shea Butter and 7 precious oils, you know it's doing your skin some good.
It leaves the skin really soft to touch and smells like a typical Sanctuary Spa product smells, quite herbal but not overpowering. 

The results of the balm claim to last up to seven days, but I have been using it every two-three days on my feet, knees and elbows after showering and just as I have felt necessary on my hands and anywhere else, which definitely hasn't been as regular as any other hand cream I have used in the past.

The sleek packaging means I can easily throw this into my handbag to carry around for whenever I need it, and I've also had a few of my friends give it a go - it's become quite a talking point!
