Hello, I'll come back to this later. But very impressed so far.

legfaced Wed 05-Jul-17 18:20:30

1. Super easy, just slap it on whilst skin is still wet and then towel dry as normal.
2. Skin felt smoother and softer after first use
3. I do like the scent but think it would be nice to have a range of scents. Scent lasted fairly well. Wasn't noticeable by the end of the day.
4. Yes definitely would recommend and would buy.

OhWesternWind Wed 05-Jul-17 18:43:12

1 Very easy to use but I found I got through the product really quickly compared to the thicker lotions I generally use. This is very thin and runny.
2 Skin felt okay afterwards, and the lotion was absorbed quickly, but I wouldn't say it was enormously softer or smoother
3 The scent was very light and didn't last long at all
4 Not sure if I would buy it again - I love the convenience of it, but I'm not sure it worked that well on my dry skin. It's probably better for people who don't need a heavy duty moisturiser.

I've only just received mine today- so I'll leave feedback next week. All I can tell you is the packaging looks swish!

daisygirlmac Wed 05-Jul-17 20:57:38

1. Very quick and really easy to use, I was a bit dubious that you could just towel dry and get dressed as normal but it's great and not at all sticky.
2. Skin felt lovely and soft after first use and I have very dry skin so this was a big improvement
3. I didn't like the scent really, I would prefer something citrusy or a bit fresher. I thought it was quite musky and perhaps a bit old fashioned. It lasted a few hours but not all day.
4. I probably would buy it in a different scent as it was really fast and I liked that you could get dressed straight after. I don't normally moisturise after a shower (although I should!) but this was so easy I would do it after every shower as it's no effort at all.

Overall I really liked it apart from the scent.

problembottom Wed 05-Jul-17 22:46:09

1. It's very quick and very easy to apply. You only need a small amount and it takes seconds to put on in the shower before you towel dry as normal. I was very impressed.

2. Yes, my skin is nicely soft and smooth, I can definitely notice the difference. I love the way it sinks in easily without leaving any residue.

3. I wasn't sure about the scent in the tube but it smells really nice on my skin. It lasts all day which is great but isn't overpowering.

4. I think I would buy this again yes. I've never used a body moisturer regularly because of time and because they tend to be heavy and leave a residue. This fits nicely into my low maintenance regime and is very light, I've been using it daily. As long as that continues I'll buy another one. And yes I'll definitely be recommending it.

1 I found the product really quick and easy to use. I would say this is the best thing about it. I have really dry legs but like lots of other mums rarely find the time to look after myself so tend not to use moisturiser on my legs. However I found I could apply this within around 30 seconds. It is a bit runny but as I used it quickly this didn't matter too much.

2 my legs were very soft after using and after towel drying didn't stay sticky for long at all. I have been using the product at least once a day for 5 days (used twice when I've had an evening shower after going for a run) and there has been a massive improvement in the skin on my legs. They remain soft for the whole day. It was almost too moisturising for my arms and chest - my chest felt sticky all day so I've stopped using it there.

3 the scent is my least favourite aspect of the product. However it is the scent I associate with sanctuary so fans will like it. I'd like to see other scents - my favourite other brand scents are champneys citrus blush and red baker rose - so something a bit more perfumed and less 'minerally'.The scent wore off after a few hours and as I used the product mainly in my legs this would not put me off.

4 I would absolutely use this product again and will probably buy some now as I noticed an offer in boots. The convenience and ease of application are excellent and a great idea for busy mums. I will continue to use the product as it has made a vast improvement on my skin. Just in time for holiday! And I love the minis supplied which I will be packing and taking with me to use. I would be happy to incorporate wet skin moisturiser into my daily routine. It's a keeper!

Thanks mumsnet and sanctuary - I've never applied for a product test before but this has opened my eyes to a great new product. I also have noticed the sanctuary advertising everywhere!

1. How quick and/or easy was Santuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?
Super quick & super easy! Just put it on whilst still wet from the shower then dry / dress as normal. I was very impressed!

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?
I definitely noticed a difference- as did my DH! My skin was nice & smooth, soft to the touch.

3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin?
To be honest I didn't really notice a particularly strong scent. So it obviously wasn't offensive nor was it memorable! Which is fine by me - I don't really expect a moisturiser to be fragrant.

4. Would you purchase the product again? Would you recommend it?
If it was reasonably priced then I would definitely buy it.
And yes I would definitely recommend it!

Thanks for letting me try it, I really was impressed and can't say anything negative about it!

1. How quick and/or easy was Santuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?

Firstly I think I should come clean and let you know I hardly ever moisturise. However, the Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle is really what it says- a miracle. I loved it! It took a couple of times using it to remember to use it before drying off but once I got into a routine it was perfect.
As mentioned above, a pump action dispenser may be more appropriate as I did end up accidentally squeezing out a bit too much.

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?
My skin felt beautifully soft and smooth, even my husband commented!

3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin?
I had forgotten how much I loved the Sanctuary Scent until using this product. I used to buy these products on a regular basis but I haven't for some years now.
I took a shower last night and I can still smell the scent so I think it has great staying power.

4. Would you purchase the product again? Would you recommend it?
Yes I would definitely recommend this product and I will be buying on a regular basis. For me personally this product has been a godsend. I no longer have to remember to rub in the moisturiser I can merely glide the Wet Skin on and I'm good to go. My skin feels healthier thank you!

PetraDelphiki Thu 06-Jul-17 10:46:09

1 super quick even for someone as lazy as I am! Quite thin and runny so you have to be careful not to slop it anywhere

2 skin did feel noticeably softer straight after using - will be interested to see longer term effects

3 I already love the sanctuary smell!!!

4 I definitely would consider buying it in future! Especially for a holiday

Goingtobeawesome Thu 06-Jul-17 10:50:59

I decided to only put the product on half my body with nothing on the other to see the difference.

I showered more than four hours ago and can still smell the sanctuary on my arm. There's not a huge difference in terms of moisturising but where I do notice it is when I'm toweling off I can feel my skin being softer. Lovely on tired feet.

I love how it's quite runny as it soaks in quickly but also sometimes don't appreciate that when it drips on my floor.

I don't like the gold S on the packaging. I've got the previous packaged goods in use and I think it is nicer and looks more luxurious. The S looks cheap to me.

Once I've used up all the stuff I have I will definitely buy this product again but probably when on offer or for a treat but that comes from being rubbish at spending unnecessary money on myself.

1. How quick and/or easy was Santuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?

Couldn't be simpler, just a quick rub all over in the shower!

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?
I felt my skin was really silky and smooth, lovely for summer legs!

3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin? I'm a fan of sanctuary products and love the scent, i felt it was still there 8 hours later, I got my husband to sniff when he came back from work!

4. Would you purchase the product again?
Yes I sent the samples to my sister whos a new mum and she loves it and my friend enjoyed it too, its a lovely little treat to get someone, eaoexially a mum who doesnt have lots of time to pamper. I'd by sanctuary way more often if it wad fair trade certified though!

Would you recommend it?
100% smile

WhosTakingDeHorseToFrance Thu 06-Jul-17 13:35:05

Thanks Mumsnet and Sanctuary Spa for letting me test this, it's gorgeous smile. I've been using it daily since the package arrived last week.

1. How quick and/or easy was Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?

Super quick and easy, you just slap it on wet skin after showering, job done!

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?

Really soft and smooth. The skin on my legs has never been softer, it used to be so dry it flaked off (yep I know TMI). This stuff is magic!

3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin?

I really like the scent although I'm not sure if it lasts that well. I didn't find this a particular concern as I like perfume and wouldn't want a body lotion that smelled too strong and jarred with a scent I was wearing.

4. Would you purchase the product again? Would you recommend it?
Absolutely and would wholeheartedly recommend it. It's a fabulous product.
Thanks again I'm a convert!!

AnythingGoesWithMe Thu 06-Jul-17 13:50:34

I've been using this everyday for a week now.
1. It's very quick and easy. I found it runner than other moisturisers but I apply it in the shower so no problem with drips. Once i' d got the hang of it, I have no drips and takes about a minute to do my body.

2. My skin feels a lot softer especially on my legs. I think this is a lighter moisturiser but I'm much more likely to use it everyday so long term should be better.

3. It smells like the 'classic' sanctuary scent. I like it a lot so enjoyed it. I haven't particularly noticed the scent on my skinbut I don't like a strong scented moisturiser as it can clash with perfume.

4. Yes I would buy this again. I have found it to be so easy to use and it works.

1. How quick and/or easy was Santuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?
Very quick and easy - it is quite light and seems to be absorbed easily without leaving much of a residue. I don't usually use moisturiser and one of the reasons for that is that I tend to forget to use it after I've dried myself. Putting on while still in the bathroom getting dry seems to work much better for me! Like other testers have said, it is quite runny but maybe that's why it doesn't feel heavy and greasy.

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?
Very - it's definitely made a difference, even to the dry skin on my heels. The smoothness and softness really seems to last throughout the day, too - I'm really impressed.

3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin?
Yes, I like the scent. I'm not sure it really lasts the whole day but I'm not sure if I'd want it to.

*4. Would you purchase the product again? Would you recommend it?
* Yes, I would buy it, depending on the price. If I buy moisturiser at all it tends to be something on special offer or an own brand, so I'm not sure what is reasonable for a good moisturiser. I like it enough that I will buy it if I can justify the price, and I'd recommend it too. For me, the main selling point is that the moisturising effect lasts all day; the fact that it is easy to use is still important but comes slightly second for me.

PieceOfPaper Thu 06-Jul-17 14:08:04

I meant to say - I really enjoyed having the opportunity to test this, so thank you Mumsnet and Sanctuary!

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 06-Jul-17 14:36:19

1. How quick and/or easy was Santuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?

It took me a couple of goes to get used to the concept of putting it on while I was wet. It was really easy and quick to apply though. Id love it to come in a pump bottle.
I was slightly uncertain about towelling it off after but it still seems to work. Probably better if you don't share a towel with your dh.

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?

It's pretty good. Not at all sticky. The benefits seem to improve with a few applications.
3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin?

<sniffs Skin> I can still smell it a little after 7 hours. It's pretty nice.

4. Would you purchase the product again? Would you recommend it?
Yes, I think so, depending on the price as I seem to be getting through it very quickly.

Thanks for the test opportunity.

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 06-Jul-17 14:38:10

Have to say it's nice to be baring my legs in the sun today without looking lizard like.

HemiDemiSemiquaver Thu 06-Jul-17 14:42:23

Doesn't it get all over the towel and bathmat?

And you have to stand there dripping while you rub it in? Or do you put it on while still in the shower? Doesn't it make the bottom of the shower/bath all slippery if any of it drips?

WhosTakingDeHorseToFrance Thu 06-Jul-17 15:04:09

hemidemisemiquaver it doesn't really drop all over the place apart from the first time when I hadn't expected the consistency.
I'm sure some probably transfers to my towel but as I don't share my towel with anyone I don't mind.
My shower isn't slippery as a result of using it and I've been putting it on in the shower, it just takes a minute.
I love this stuff!!!smile

OhYouBadBadKitten Thu 06-Jul-17 15:05:19

It does get on the towel, which feels a bit weird but doesn't seem to leave any marks. My towels are coloured though. I put it on in the shower. Doesn't seem to make it slippery.

TheWildRumpyPumpus Thu 06-Jul-17 15:30:44

1. Very easy to use, I enjoy putting it onto wet skin and it sinks in quickly for me.
2. My elbows and knees are drastically less dry and ashy - I feel softer all over but that's the biggest difference for me.
3. Scent is ok. I prefer fresher lighter scents like citrus generally.
4. Yes definitely would recommend and would buy.

nippey Thu 06-Jul-17 15:38:37

1. How quick and/or easy was Santuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle to use?
So quick and easy! Took less than 30 seconds to moisturise all over. One of the things that stops me using a moisturiser is the time it takes but I've done it everyday since my sample arrived.

2. How soft or smooth did your skin feel after using the product?
Really soft and I've noticed a difference in appearance on my legs already, they are usually dry and a bit scaly but not anymore!

3. Do you like the Sanctuary scent? Did you think it lasted on your skin?
I like the scent, it lasted for about 6 hours on my skin. A unscented version for perfume wearers might be a good idea.

4. Would you purchase the product again? Would you recommend it?
Absolutely 100% it's on offer in boots at the moment and I've brought 2 more already
