Quick Sanctuary Cleanser Reviews

Sanctuary is a brand I often spot  when I'm at Boots stocking up on essentials but never really take much notice of. I've tried quite a few of their body and bath products in the past but I'd never tried any of their face/skincare products. Last month I picked up a couple of £5.00 off vouchers at Boots and decided to give a couple of items from the line a try. The two products I picked up, Polishing hot cloth cleanser and Fresh faced purifying wash both had pretty good reviews online and with the money off vouchers I had, were a bargain.  I've been using both for the past few weeks now so thought I'd share my thoughts.

Fresh faced purifying wash is a gentle foaming wash enriched with vitamin E and glycerin to help balance the skin and increase moisture levels and chamomile, cucumber and witch hazel to cool and sooth. I've been using this ever day in place of my normal wash and so far I really like it. It smells quite fresh, foams up well and removes any traces of make up left behind by my make up remover. My clog/spot prone skin doesn't seem to be complaining either and I've not had any break outs, sensitivity or dryness since I started using it.

Overall a pretty good cleanser considering it costs around £7.00 for 140ml.

Polishing hot cloth cleanser is designed to open up pores and deep cleanse your skin. It contains Beeswax and Cocoa Butter to hydrate, Chamomile to calm and Gold of pleasure oils to replenish deep down moisture. I've been using this a couple of times a week in place of the purifying wash and I have to say, it feels really nice. I haven't noticed any major improvement in skin tone or texture but my face definitely feels cleaner, softer and hydrated after using and the lovely scent makes it a pleasure to use.

I can imagine the 125ml bottle will last ages considering I only use it twice a week but I think I'll be repurchasing when it runs out

Both of the cleansers are available from Boots and The Sanctuary site and they cost £7.14 and £10.20.


  1. I've wanted to try the Sanctuary for a while but I always get swayed because Soap and Glory is right next to it!

  2. I've not actually tried anything form the Soap and Glory range! Really should give it a go, heard lots of positive things

  3. I bought the hot cloth cleanser to use because my Liz Earle one was on its last legs but I was a bit miffed to see that you couldn't use it on your eyes which Liz Earle is brilliant for.

    I'll use it up as a general cleanser but I'm not sure if I'll be buying it again.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate and read each and every one of them!
