Now before I kick off this post I must put it out there that I’m probably not the best tester for anything dedicated to aiding sleep. I have been known to sleep through fire alarms, burglar alarms (twice) and wake-up alarms, which coincidently happened this morning. When I’m in the world of slumber I am well and truly out for the count. But that aside I was still determined to give the new ‘Deep Sleep’ range from This Works a go. You know how I love my bedtime rituals, so I’ve recently been slotting two of my favourite products from the range into my busy pre-sleep routine…
I only spoke yesterday of my love for oils (post here), so it’s no surprise the new Deep Sleep Night Oil* gets a thumbs up from me. It’s 100% natural, isn’t too greasy and smells simply glorious – lavender and chamomile heaven. My other favourite is the Deep Sleep Stress Less* rollerball, another product packed with natural oils – eucalyptus, lavender and frankincense, that you’re supposed to roll onto your wrists or a tissue and inhale before bed. I’ve been going wild and rolling it all over the shop, applying some to my palms and then wiping the residue on my pillow. Clever. Pressure point pleaser and pillow spray in one. Like I said, I’m naturally a pretty deep sleeper, so I can’t say that using these two in conjunction has really improved my slumber – it definitely encourages some kind of placebo effect. But it’s more the ritual, the sleepifying scents and when I climb into bed reeking of a lavender bush I always have a big fat smile on my face. And that’s always good, eh?
You can pick both up from larger Boots stores or the This Works Website, where there are actually some really good deals on Xmas-present-friendly bundles of the Deep Sleep range. The Candle, Sleep Balm and Bath Soak also sound rather fabulous. Before I even got wind of this stuff my Mum had already requested the Pillow Spray on her Christmas List, so I’m sure that will be winging it’s way into her stocking this year. So all in all i……ZzzzzZzzzzZzzz. I joke, I joke!
