There’s nothing I love more than getting home from work, changing into my comfies and having a relaxing night in before getting a good night’s sleep. I previously wrote a whole blog post on how to properly unwind after work. However, I feel that even if you don’t have time for a whole winding-down-routine, the beauty products that you choose to use before getting into bed can make a huge difference to the quality of your sleep.
I’ve recently been trying out two products from This Works’ Deep Sleep range – and they have honestly been life-changing.
I must admit, I’m one of those people who doesn’t really have much trouble falling asleep on most days. In fact, I normally pretty much fall asleep within a few minutes of my head touching the pillow. However, I still find that when I’m feeling stressed, I don’t get a good night’s sleep. Although I can fall asleep pretty easily, stressful times mean that I would wake up with a sore, stiff neck or a headache, and not feeling as energised as I should be after a good 8 hours of sleep.
This Works’ Deep Sleep range is designed to help you get a good night’s sleep naturally in order to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to face the day. The range, which includes their renowned pillow spray, a shower gel, bath soak and candle, contains an aromatherapeutic blend of lavender, chamomile and vetivert – which smells incredible.
I’m more of an evening shower type of person (those extra minutes of sleep in the morning are too precious). This Works’ Deep Sleep Shower Gel is the perfect product to use in the shower just before changing into your PJs and getting into bed. The shower gel is SLS and alcohol-free, and contains a natural blend of essential oils to calm the mind, whilst Coconut Oil softens the skin. I find that I need to use quite a few pumps of the product in order for it to lather up properly, however the scent is so powerful and lingers on the skin well after you step out of your shower and get into bed. I’d highly recommend giving this a go for some night-time pampering! Available here.
Pretty much everyone has either used or heard of This Works’ legendary Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. In the past, I have had a sample of the pillow spray which I loved, so I was really happy to get my hands on this once again. Used at bedtime, this promises to help reduce sleep anxiety and improve sleep quality. I have been spraying this all over my pillow before going to sleep and I just love the lavender scent. It is so soothing and I have been feeling a lot more refreshed in the morning since I have started using this regularly. I would 100% recommend this product! Available here.
