Hi everyone, i’ve got a really exciting post for you today! Holland & Barrett have challenged me to be a part of their #GoodSleep campaign which is all about finding beauty and well-being products that will help you have a better night’s sleep.
I’m definitely a late night browser; being totally addicted to all things internet I tend to lay in bed on my phone for way too long resulting in me feeling wide awake. Not good. So, Holland & Barrett sent me a sleep pack tailored to my late night browsing habits to see if it would make a difference. Here’s what I got…
The pack included:
- Dr Organic Lavender Skin Lotion
Miaroma Relaxing Lavender Temple Balm
Miaroma Relaxing Lavender Sleep Mist
Miaroma Lavender Pure Essential Oil
Miaroma Peppermint Pure Essential Oil
Heath & Heather Camomile Tea Bags
Holland & Barrett Valerian Plus 30 Tablets
Holland & Barrett Lemon Balm Capsules
Holland & Barrett East Meets West Sleep Formula Capsules
Also in the pack was a lovely silk pillowcase which are said to be beneficial for both the skin and hair so I was so excited to try that out. My hair gets very frizzy and since i’ve been using this i’ve actually noticed I have less flyaways and also less knots which is a total win for me. In terms of skin, this is also supposed to stop that ‘creasing’. I tend to sleep on the side of my face so I get those weird lines down my face the next morning- doesn’t happen at all with this. It also helps with redness in the skin as the silk doesn’t irritate so if I notice a difference after a few more weeks i’ll let you know!
My favourite products from this selection definitely included the Miaroma lavender range. I love scents as they help me feel relaxed and that little bit more ‘zen’. So, I knew I was going to love these.
The lavender temple balm has been a welcomed addition to my night time routine, and I really enjoy massaging it onto my temples and pressure points before sleeping. Being quite an anxious person sometimes I can see this being really useful in other situations too for keeping me feeling a bit more relaxed. I don’t know about you but as soon as I smell lavender I instantly feel sleepy!
I’ve been using sleep sprays for well over a couple of years now, so I was really happy to see one included in my sleep pack. I swear by them now to help aid sleep and I actually had no idea Holland & Barrett even sold such products so i’m really interested to see what else they have on offer.
A few days ago I took a bath using the lavender essential oil. I’m not very experienced with essential oils so this was a new experience for me, and a lovely one too. I just added a few drops into my bath water and it filled the room with the lavender fragrance. After my bath I used the Dr.Organic skin lotion to moisturise and what I love most about this is that it can be used on both the body and face (and you know I love a multipurpose product!).
I’ve been using these products for a few weeks now and I’m really enjoying using them and I will continue to as well. If you struggle getting off to sleep why not try out some relaxing products and see if it makes a difference? Don’t knock it until you try it!
All of the products mentioned can be purchased from Holland and Barrett.
