New Wonder Oil Serum from Sanctuary Spa

Sanctuary Spa Wonder Oil Serum
Ok ... so in theory it shouldn't work... but it really does!
Oil and a serum in the same bottle?!

The new wonder oil/serum from Sanctuary Spa .... well they had me at wonder!! I was intrigued!

Saw this was launched not long ago and already out of stock on boots.com so I headed over to Sanctuary's own website to find that by adding the code 'WONDERFUL' at the checkout you got £5 off this new facial oil. Win win!!
Really great service, as it arrived super fast! No sooner had I answered the door to the postman I was investigating how this concoction worked! 

You have to give it a shake to mix the two together.... 
As you can see it's a bi-phase liquid

Apply it after cleansing. 
In the AM before primer and foundation / BB or CC Cream

In the PM after toner before a night-time moisturiser. Or for thirstier skin Sanctuary's secret therapists facial oil is great for a night time treat. (This somehow snuck into my basket along with the facial cleansing oil - for the free delivery of course!) That's what I'm telling myself!!  Anyway........

So, to apply use the nifty dropper and drop 1-3 drops into the palm or back of your hand.

Using finger tips on your other hand pat lightly onto your face.
I like to start at the forehead cheeks chin and neck then any excess on the nose area.
It is a truly lovely hydrating base to start the day with. Not greasy and doesn't give that shiny face look.

I was initially a bit wary about applying any sort of oil to my face especially in the morning for fear I would end up looking a greasy shiny mess but this just sinks into the skin beautifully (once patted in).

I have to say I am truly hooked! 

For the record I have combination skin and a slightly oily t-zone. I find that this really works for me. 






So on to the science. What's in this product.


Well for starters there is:
Moringa Oil - From the Moringa tree. Known for it's detoxifying and rejuvenating properties.
Jojoba oil - From the Jojoba plant - Great for oilier skins as it helps to regulate sebum production.
Pomegranate oil - Helps to stimulate collagen is therefore anti ageing and hydrating too.

The Serum section contains...
 'Red Rice Stem Cells' (say that fast 5 times without getting tongue-tied!!).
Red rice stem cells help to firm and rejuvenate the skin.

It has a sort of wheaty / natural smell to it, not too overpowering or unpleasant and this soon fades once on the skin.

Wonder oil works to boost the elasticity of the skin giving a plumper and healthier appearance.
I have to say I really do agree, even upon first application my skin felt lovely and smooth. It sank in nicely and after waiting a minute or two, I was then able to then use my usual primer and mineral foundation over the top. 

I'm looking forward to using this particularly during the cold winter months when my skin needs that extra moisture boost.
