A Quick Bodycare Routine

The great news is that adding a little pampering to your day requires little more than including a few extra minutes to your usual bath or shower routine 

Step 1. Cleanse

Whether you swear by a shower first thing in the morning, or enjoy a more indulgent bubble bath before bed, every body care routine starts with cleansing! Beautifully clean skin gives you the perfect base for the rest of your body care ritual.

How to use body wash

To get the most out of your body wash, start at the shoulders and lather the product onto damp skin in circular motions, working your way downwards.


Choose the best body wash for you

The perfect addition to any bath or shower routine, our Classic Body Wash is infused with a nourishing blend of essential oils and Jojoba Beads and transforms into a silky foam when it comes into contact with water.


If you’re looking to make your shower extra luxurious, our 2 Day Long Lasting Moisture Shower Oil combines Gold of Pleasure Oil and Omegas 3, 6 and 9 to leave skin feeling super soft for up to 2 days.


For those of you who look forward to a soak at the end of a long day, our Foaming Bath Soak will help you to feel properly pampered. This foaming bubble bath contains Wheat Proteins and Aloe Vera to soothe skin and leave it feeling velvety soft. 


Step 2. Exfoliate

After cleansing, exfoliate the skin with a body scrub to remove dead skin cells, boost circulation and sweep away any remaining impurities. Regardless of what body scrub you decide on, exfoliating keeps skin healthy by improving skin tone and texture, helping cell turnover and boosting radiance.


How to exfoliate your body

Starting at the shoulders, apply your body scrub to damp skin in circular motions, working your way down the torso, arms and legs. If you struggle to reach your back, a long-handled body brush can be a great investment.

Expert Tip: Incorporating a gentle massage into your body scrub routine is a great way to boost circulation while giving yourself a little pampering treat. Work your hands in a circular motion, concentrating on areas that feel tight or tense.

For a truly decadent exfoliating experience, try our Salt Scrub. A sumptuous blend of Dead Sea Salts and essential oils gently sloughs away dead cells while giving skin a nourishing dose of moisture. 


If you prefer the texture of a gel body scrub, our Classic Body Scrub is also available in tempting White Lily & Damask Rose and Green Lemon & Orange Blossom fragrances. All three refreshing formulas contain Natural Pumice and essential oils to leave skin feeling smooth and refined. 


Step 3. Moisturise

Perhaps the most important step in any body care routine, using a body lotion or body butter restores moisture to the skin, leaving it looking healthier and more radiant.


How to use body lotion

Once you’re out of the bath or shower, dry your skin and apply a generous dollop of body lotion or body butter. Massage your moisturiser all over, concentrating on any particularly dry areas, such as the knees and elbows. Wait a minute or so to allow the cream to absorb before dressing.


Choose the best body moisturiser for you

Try our velvety air-whipped Crème Soufflée for some seriously hydrating goodness. A creamy blend of Mango Oil, Red Seaweed and Jojoba Oil melts into the skin to leave it feeling silky soft and replenished.


Sanctuary Spa body butter


If it’s a special occasion, or you’re simply looking to treat yourself to a little extra indulgence, why not try our Rose Gold Radiance Precious Glow Body Oil? Infused with Diamond Dust and Rose Quartz extract, it instantly absorbs to leave skin with a beautiful sheen. 


Step 4. Don’t Forget Your Hands And Feet!

Despite the fact that they’re so hardworking, when it comes to bodycare, we often neglect our hands and feet.


Our conditioning Hand Cream is enriched with a blend of Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil that leaves hands feeling instantly smoother and nourished. Carry it in your bag when you’re on-the-go to give your hands a little TLC whenever they begin to feel dry.



Pamper dry feet by massaging our Moisture Rich Foot Butter into the soles, heels, toes, and tops of the feet. If your heels are particularly dry, apply a little of our comforting Heel Balm to help soften and soothe dry, cracked skin. 


From body wash to foot care, our 4-step body care routine will leave your skin looking and feeling restored and replenished. By making small changes to your everyday bath or shower routine, you can reap some radiance-boosting bodycare benefits while treating yourself to some essential me-time.
