Dreaming of deep sleep? Well, for those who want to sleep like a baby at night let me introduce to you a hopeful answer to y'all! It's This Works Deep Sleep range. A few months ago I made a purchase on This Works website. They were doing a massive sale and I was able to pick up the Deep Sleep balm, pillow mask, and a body cream. The balm and pillow mask came in their really nicely packaged gift set. It has a magnetic closure so it keeps the scent of lavender safe in the box :) The pillow mask you see, is not just a plain pillow mask. It's stuffed with oh so fresh lavenders! Yay!
But THE product I want to rave about here is the balm. Oh.... ma.... loardddddd! The natural balm made of Lavender and Rose essential oils smells so fresh, luxurious, and comforting. It says to apply on pulse points and any dry areas like cuticles or elbows. They say however, NOT to apply on lips. It is the perfect size to carry around or to just leave by your bedside for a quick dab here and there.
As you know (if you've read my blogposts) I've really gotten into aromatherapy. I doubted the whole idea, but really, I could not deny the effects of them! That's what got me to buy this range. When I applied this balm on my pulse points and such, that night.... I truly had one good DEEP sleep. But it was the first use, so I didn't want to jump to conclusions that THIS WORKS.
But then, you know... I have two sisters. As I say, having girls in the house means you've got beauty critics around you at all times :) I asked one of my sister to try it. Lo' and behold! She came the next day and said... THIS WORKS. She confirmed my experience, saying she slept like no other that night. Then, thereafter, we both applied it every night and really the soothing lavender scent is an aromatic lullaby!
The Deep Sleep Dream Cream is also of the same sooth scent. The cream bottle reads "Wrap yourself in a cocoon of soothing essential oils anywhere, anytime." It's a natural fusion of Provencal Lavender, Vetivert and Camomile blended with Crambe and Gold of Pleasure oils (rich in Omega 3). These hydrate and protect your skin. Oh-la-la!
At first, the scent was too herbal for my like. The vertivert is definitely there. The lavender is there as well, but not as sweet or light as I would've liked it. So, after the first use, I had put it away for awhile. The balm on the other hand instantly suited my taste. But after the amazing effects of the balm, I eased back into this cream. I have to say, it really is lovely.
I love the whole This Works brand. The idea is that the products are actually effective. Their "modern natural beauty" is completely reliable. The only downfall is that unless you're in the UK, getting a hold of this can be a bit difficult (shipping price and such). Try their website or BeautyBay!
Again, another essential step in my nighttime ritual :)
