NEW Bath & Body Brand from UK | Being by Sanctuary Spa: Review

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Hailing all the way from the UK, a new beauty brand has arrived at Shoppers Drug Mart. Embodying the fun and free-spirited attitude of the millennials and the Gen Zs, Being by Sanctuary Spa offers a wide variety of bath and body products scented with distinct flavor profiles. I recently got the chance to test drive quite a few things from the line so if you are interested in this new and funky brand, read my reviews to learn more......

Being by Sanctuary Spa | Salted Caramel & Macadamia Bubble Bath ($16 CAD):
Scented with a soft and yummy blend of decadent salted caramel and nutty macadamia, this is a liquid bubble bath designed to give you a foamy and relaxing bath. The formulation bubbles very well but the scent is a little softer than I would have preferred.
Being by Sanctuary Spa | Salted Caramel & Macadamia Bubble Bath, Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Shower Burst, Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean Body Mist
Being by Sanctuary Spa | Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean Body Mist ($10 CAD):
Because of the affordable pricing, the Body Mists are Being's best-sellers and I'm not surprised! My personal favorite flavor profile is the Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean, which is made with actual mango extract. Zesty and fresh, the spray has the perfect blend of tart and sweet. For something that costs only $10, the fragrance is amazing!

Being by Sanctuary Spa | Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Shower Burst ($15 CAD):
Hands down the most unique item out of the bunch, the Shower Burst is a body wash that dispenses like a gel but quickly aerates to form a rich and voluminous foam, much like a shaving cream. The Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom version has a mouth-watering lychee flavor, mixed with a soft hint of tart berry. However, the Shower Burst does have a bit a chemical-y shaving cream smell, probably due to the aerosol propellant contained in the ingredients. Personally, I would rather stick with a regular liquid body wash but I think this will be very fun for younger kids.

Being by Sanctuary Spa | Hibiscus & Coconut Water Body Scrub ($20 CAD):
Made with palm seed powder, blueberry seed, and crushed coconut shell, this is a refreshing body scrub scented with hibiscus and coconut. The formulation appears gel-like and runny but it is actually pretty scrubby and effective. With the dreamy tropical scent, it is definitely the perfect addition to your weekly pampering session.

Being by Sanctuary Spa | Salted Caramel & Macadamia Body Butter ($20 CAD):
Probably my favorite item from the collection, this is a rich and nourishing body butter made with shea butter, macadamia oil, and cocoa butter. Sharing the same flavor as the Salted Caramel & Macadamia Bubble Bath, the butter smells nutty and yummy but not overly sweet. Although rich and luxurious, the formulation absorbs very quickly and leaves behind no greasy residue.

Being by Sanctuary Spa | Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Body Lotion ($16 CAD):
Last but not least is a lighter body moisturizer also formulated with shea butter. The consistency is much lighter in comparison to the body butter and the Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom version smells very fruity and delicious!

Thanks to the flavor options, packaging, and branding, Being by Sanctuary Spa definitely stands out as a fresh and fun bath and body brand catered towards the younger consumers. Nevertheless, everything is well-formulated and beautifully scented. There's nothing sickeningly sweet and I myself am even drawn to the unique and colorful packaging. If you are holiday shopping for yourself or a younger relative, definitely check out Being at Shoppers!
