Mandara Spa - Time to Spa

I dream of spending a weekend at a spa being pampered but in the absence of that actually happening, there are some amazing products to be found that can help you have your own little pampering session at home.

Mandara Spa offers some amazing products, some of which you will find in Sainsburys and they are so reasonably priced that you need to get out there right now and snap them all up to give them a try because they not only smell absolutely divine, they are just that - divine.

Mandara Spa - Time to Spa


Mandara Spa Bali Santi Bath & Shower Cream is one of my favourite products from the range. Costing just £7.99 for 300ml it contains an evocative blend of coconut oil, yoghurt and lotus flower milk which not only smells exactly as the description states but within the bath it creates copious amounts of bubbles and it leaves your skin feeling so soft, smooth and moisturised. It is one of those products you put aside for an extra pampering treat.

Mandara Spa Bali Santi Coconut Glow Smoothing Body Polish is a stunning addition to the Bath & Shower Cream. Coconut is another big fragrance here and it uses nourishing coconut oil, exfoliating and smoothing coconut shell, spice and floral fragrance all of which come together and become a creamy scrub which can be as abrasive on the skin as you need it to be, just by adding a little more pressure in places as you massage it onto the skin. This tub 350ml tub costs just £8.00.


The third product within this Bali Santi range that I have absolutely adored using is the Firming Body Lotion which again uses an evocative blend of coconut and sweet almond oils to nourish and moisturise with Alaria Esculenta extract to help encourage skin firmness.  Once out of the bath or shower, massage the lotion, which isn't too thick a texture, into the skin and it almost immediately absorbs on contact with warm skin.  The coolness of the lotion is incredibly refreshing and it smells absolutely divine.  A 150ml tube costs just £5.

The final two products which have made up my home spa pamper package are for my hands and feet.  Whenever I have had a long soak, I do always apply cream to both my hands and feet to ensure they remain moisturised.

The Citrus and Coconut Foot Butter uses Shea butter, nourishing coconut oil, skin softening jojoba oil, hydrating glycerine, fragrant rosemary, lavender and sweet orange which come together to create a really wonderful scent with the sweet orange and Lavender for me being the dominant scent. As a foot butter the cream is really luxurious and thick, so you only need a small amount to massage into the skin. A 75ml tube costs just £4.50.


The Shea and Coconut hand butter uses Moisturising Shea and cocoa butters, smoothing sweet almond oil, nourishing coconut oil and hydrating glycerine to create a luxurious hand cream which is a perfect after bath and shower treat. A scent combination that I absolutely adore, the sweet almond oil is really noticeable and as soon as it comes into contact with your skin, it takes a little massaging before the cream sinks into the skin leaving it soft, smooth and really hydrated. A 75ml tube costs just £4.50.

  1. I LOVE mandarin spa - but the sandwood one (purple) I know this sounds ridiculous but it smells so grown up...
