On my wedding day back in 2011 I remember being completely phased by a question I was asked by my make-up lady as she put the finishing touches to my hair and make-up.
It was this: “you do moisturise your arms, don’t you”?
Well, actually no and like many time poor mums I suspect loads of us neglect our bods to a probably shameful degree.
Whilst I love the luxury of a wonderfully scented body cream, I just can’t get enough time in the bathroom for the full on beauty ritual I used to enjoy in my single days.
You can bet as soon as I sink into the soothing warm bath water or dunk my head beneath the steaming shower that a battle will ensue downstairs (this afternoon it was over ownership of a highlighter) or I will hear the plaintive cry of one of my offspring bellowing “muuuuuum, where ARE you?”. And this even if I tell them I’m off for a bath.
In fact, a recent survey of 2360 women by Sanctuary Spa discovered that 65% of women don ’t moisturise every day and of these almost half are ‘too busy’ or so stretched they ‘forget’ to do it. Anyone with kids will definitely identify with that.
To help solve this problem, they have created a new body product called Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle and it’s pretty unique because you apply it whilst your skin is still wet and before you towel yourself dry. Just turn the shower off (or get out of the bath), apply, massage in to damp skin, towel dry and off you go.
Because you’re moisturising whilst your skin is already damp, you can not only lock in double the moisture but get ready in double quick time.

I have to admit I was a little dubious but it really does work and leaves the skin lovely and soft. It smells absolutely gorgeous and has a slightly sweeter fragrance than some of the other Sanctuary products which I have sometimes found a little too herbal in aroma.
There is now no excuse whatsoever to not moisturise the old bod because with a tube of this by the side of the bath, what was previously (if I’m honest) a bit of a chore can be done in a minute or so.
Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle usually retails at £8 but from now until 1st August 2017 you can try it at the introductory price of only £5.
It’s available from most Boots stores & on Boots.com – http://www.boots.com/sanctuary-spa-wet-skin-moisture-miracle-200ml-10229030
So yes, now I DO moisturise my arms.
