I mentioned many times here on the blog that when it comes to body care I’m a major procrastinator. If the body lotion I’m currently testing does not smell out of this world, I would forget to apply it and then deal with the consequences of having super dry skin. Being a beauty blogger though I know about the importance of daily moisturizing so I set up a mission to find the best smelling body line at Ulta (duh, it opened just a few blocks away from my house)—and I succeeded!
In fact, I found not only a product that smells heavenly but an entire brand that offers all sort of yummy body products for any taste. The brand is called Being by Sanctuary SPA and, as I mentioned, it’s available at Ulta. You might remember the holiday gift set I mentioned in my The Color-Coded Guide: Pink Edition—that was a perfect introduction to the world of Being. And now, after picking up a few additional products, I must confess that I’m majorly addicted!
You probably wonder what is the scent that got me so deeply. It’s Salted Caramel & Macadamia – it’s not your typical body lotion scent and I really love that it reminds of an expensive perfume rather than your typical moisturizer. My next favorite is Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean—it’s more refreshing and moody. If you are not a nutty or spicy kind of fragrance lover, consider Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom scent as it’s fruity and super girly.
Now, when you know about the scent, let’s get into products themselves.
Being by Sanctuary SPA Salted Caramel & Macadamia Body Butter // In my book, that’s the star of the line! It offers rich, deep hydration that doesn’t feel sticky. The product is loaded with cocoa and Shea butter that is known for their naturally hydrating purposes. I prefer using it at night for a deep nourishing – that way, I don’t need to apply any moisturizing product the next morning after I take a shower.
Being by Sanctuary SPA Salted Caramel & Macadamia Body Scrub // This product goes hand in hand with the body butter as it exfoliates and preps skin for the deep hydrating treatment. At first glance, the scrub looks creamy and beads-less, but there are fine melted macadamia nut granules that remove the dead skin cells in a natural and enjoyable way.
Being by Sanctuary SPA Salted Caramel & Macadamia Body Lotion // If you prefer lighter body moisturizer consistency, consider this lightweight lotion that momentarily absorbs into skin leaving it hydrated and beautifully scented.
Being by Sanctuary SPA Salted Caramel & Macadamia Hand Cream // Another secret obsession of mine is luxurious hand lotions and this is one of them. When you are using this product, your hands not only become so much smoother but also smell heavenly!

These are the products that I tested recently from Being by Sanctuary SPA. As you might already have concluded, I became addicted to the scents the brand has to offer. I also loved the fact that the entire line is paraben-free and they don’t test on animals. I wonder if you had a chance to test any products by Being yet? If so, what are some of your favorites?
