I’m a big fan of the Sanctuary Spa bath and body care range, but I’ve only really tried a few products from their skincare range. I was kindly gifted the Sanctuary Spa Glacial Splash Hydrating Mask, and a couple of their other skincare products to try. The Sanctuary Spa Glacial Splash Hydrating Mask is £12 and contains 75ml of product, within a clear plastic tube. I’d not seen this mask before, and there’s only two reviews on the Boots website so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Sanctuary Spa Glacial Splash Hydrating Mask
“A refreshing leave-on moisture boosting face mask with quenching ice cap water, brightening Vitamin B3 and replenishing alpine minerals. Cooling, light and comfortable to leave on skin when you want plumped and hydrated skin that looks dewy fresh. For all skin types. Suitable for Vegans. Dermatologically tested. Fragrance free. Against animal testing. Paraben free.”
How to use:
Smooth over clean, dry skin anytime your parched skin requires a hydration boost & a reviving splash of moisture.
Leave to absorb into skin (do not rinse) for calm, plumped & awakened skin.
Use 1-2 times per week.
The Sanctuary Spa Glacial Splash Hydrating Mask is a blue translucent gel, with a 100% natural fragrance. The mask does have quite a strong fragrance which smells like perfume, but I feel better knowing it is a natural fragrance, rather than an artificial fragrance. The gel feels really sticky on the stick which I don’t love, as it feels sticky during the whole time that it’s absorbing into the skin.
It’s absolutely fine once it has fully absorbed, but whilst it’s absorbing over ten to fifteen minutes, it feels almost like glue on the face. I like using face masks to relax and feel pampered, but I don’t unfortunately get that sensation when using the mask as I dislike the stickiness sensation so much.
Usually you find that hydrating, leave on face masks have a cream formula that leaves the skin feeling really nourished and hydrated. I don’t notice any hydration benefits of using the Sanctuary Spa Glacial Splash Hydrating Mask which is such a shame. For £12 I’d expect to experience noticeable benefits to the skin, but sadly I can’t say I experience anything other than an uncomfortable sticky sensation whilst it dries.
My skin is very dry so I often find masks not to be hydrating enough, but I don’t notice any hydrating benefits from using this mask. I never dislike Sanctuary Spa products so it’s a real shame this one was so disappointing, but I’ve also been trying their Diamond Dust Refining Scrub Mask recently too, and that one is so much better in my opinion, and I’ll do a full review on that mask very soon.
