Today has been the ultimate lazy Sunday – I got up around 10am, did the usual thing of checking Instagram, Twitter, Emails and Facebook, I finally got out of bed at 11 and went to do our weekly food shop. Came back and did all the laundry and then got back into bed! And for the rest of the afternoon I have just been lazing around cleaning make up brushes, watching Netflix and listening to Adele – a Sunday well spent brings a week of content!
So to help everyone relax and make sure you wake up on the right side of Monday morning, I thought I would talk a little bit about ‘This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray‘ available from LookFantastic. They come in various different sizes but I think this one is the biggest. It has definitely lasted me about 3 months and I tend to use it every other night.
Everyone knows that lavender helps you sleep, but I find using oils can be a little messy and I don’t want oil stains on my silk pillowcases! #FirstWorldProblems I know! So This Works spray is super easy and not messy at all – I spray the pillows first and then it says to spray inside the bed as well so that when you move in the night more lavender is released.
Let me tell you, there is nothing more satisfying than getting into a freshly laundered bed with crisp cold sheets and having the aroma of lavender circling you – it is divine! Now down to the nitty gritty, I would say it helps aid sleep and definitely gets me in the mood to go to sleep, but I’m not sure whether it gives me an extra 2 hours of sleep or helps keep me asleep but I would say I have a deeper sleep than usual and nod off a lot quicker than nights where I don’t use this.
I am also quite a nervous flyer, and I know that lavender is also relaxing and can help you keep calm, so before I fly in a couple of weeks time I am going to spray this onto my clothes and eye mask so that the 9 hour flight (!) is relaxing for me and so that I can nod off into a lavender field dream…
Who else loves using Lavender before bed?! And what other products have people tried from This Works?
