Product Review: The Sanctuary Salt Scrub Bar

There are so many bath and body products to choose from — sometimes it can just come down to the most pleasing aroma. Before I even opened The Sanctuary Salt Scrub Bar ($7), I could already smell amazing scents wafting out from under its plastic packaging. At that moment, I just knew I was going to like it.

This substantial (and long-lasting) scrub bar produces a creamy lather, never feeling too tight or drying. It also has built-in sea salt and loofah fibers, which feel gentle. There's no harsh "ouch factor" here. As for that scent? It's sexy spicy — in a word, alluring. Powdery, but not sweet, it carries notes of patchouli without being too musky. The aroma does linger, but in a refreshing kind of way; it won't annoy your seatmate on the bus ride.

The Sanctuary, which is an actual spa in London's Covent Garden, has been making women feel and smell amazing for over 30 years. Originally many of their clientele consisted of dancers who performed close by. I can see why — I'm feeling a little extra zip in my step these past few days myself.

Funny its Sanctuary brand... It says Covent Garden... But I cant find it anywhere in the UK!! It used to be at the two dollar shops back home. Love that stuff. Is there anywhere I can buy online?

I'm not a bar soap girl but I would really like to have scrubbies in my soap so this is really cool sounding.
