I love the feeling of properly moisturised skin – who doesn’t? I love applying a really rich and luxurious cream on occasion before bed – but what I don’t love is waiting for it to sink in before I can get between the sheets, or not being able to get dressed in the morning until my body lotion has soaked in. I just don’t have the patience for it.
Occasionally, I’ll get fed up with having dusty legs or tight feeling skin and I’ll get into a bit of a routine of applying a body lotion but almost as soon as I start to feel the benefits I get slack and forget again. It’s ridiculous really as I spend loads of time taking care of my face with high end cleansing products, masks and moisturisers but I just don’t show my body the same respect.
Sanctuary Spa have launched a new moisturiser this summer aimed at helping time poor women like me – in fact 65% of the women they surveyed don’t moisturise everyday – almost half of these are “too busy” or have so much on that they “forget”. Yep. That’s definitely me and I bet it’s probably you too! Wet Skin Moisture Miracle is completely different to your average body lotion – you keep it in the shower and apply it to wet skin however it’s not rinsed off like other in-shower moisturisers I’ve tried in the past.
By applying Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to shower wet skin, you’re not just benefiting from the moisturiser itself but from the moisture already on your skin making it super effective, in fact it’s clinically proven to lock in double the hydration meaning instantly softer and smoother skin. It’s so quick and easy to do – it feels like you’re just having an extra wash – the product glides onto your skin, spreading easily and takes just a few moments. The strangest bit though is that you don’t rinse the product off, you just get out of the shower and towel dry yourself as normal. I must admit at first I found this bizarre, it felt as though I was jut going to rub all of the Wet Skin Moisture Miracle off onto my towel but it’s fine, I dried my skin really gently and was ready to get dressed straight away. Winner. The Sanctuary Spa signature scent lingers for quite some time after you’ve used Wet Skin Moisture Miracle – which is fine if you like it of course but it is a fairly strong fragrance.
Since I’ve started using Wet Skin Moisture Miracle, my arms and legs in particular are better moisturised than they’ve been in months which is especially well timed considering it’s the season of short sleeves and bare legs! Wet Skin Moisture Miracle is never going to take the place of luxuriating in the experience of applying a thick body butter, but hell – who has time for that?
