A couple of weeks ago, I was asked, if I could help Silent Night out with a little bit of research analysing how well I sleep at night. I mentioned that although I got around 6 hours sleep at night, sometimes a little more, I still felt really tired in the morning – in fact, more tired than before going to bed. My results were recorded and not long after filling in the questionnaire, I was was sent two sleep products from this works: the this works sleep balm and the deep sleep pillow spray (both available as a set for around £20).
I was asked to use both products every evening to see, if they actually helped me have a better night’s sleep and if I am completely honest, I thought they would be absolutely pointless. How was a spray supposed to help me sleep better? Clearly all I needed were one or two additional hours in bed. Anyway, I stuck to the instructions and here’s what I thought: Both products are really easy to use. You simply apply some of the sleep balm to your pulse points and spray some of the deep sleep pillow spray onto your pillow before going to sleep. Both remedies smell really lovely. I have a thing for essential oils, so the mix of Lavender and Vetiver really appealed to me.
I used the products as suggested and have to say that they had a rather relaxing effect on me. Usually, I play around on my phone or tablet when going to sleep, but the scent of the pillow spray made me so tired that my eyes got really heavy after just a couple of minutes and I softly slid into the land of dreams without even noticing. The scent is not overpowering at all and just really pleasant. It also stays on the pillow for quite a while, so that I could sometimes still smell it on my pillow the next day.
The sleep balm is a little less powerful with regards to its smell, but I think in combination with the spray, it works really well. Now, I can’t say that it’s the effect of the product or my mind playing tricks on me, but I do think that This Works’s Deep Sleep Night Time range has really helped me to go to sleep in a more relaxed way and that my sleep has become much deeper and less interrupted. In fact, I can’t remember one night that I haven’t slept through since using both products. Not bad, is it?
