Excuse the silence on the blog the past couple of weeks. Life has been hectic which has meant no time for anything, not even much needed sleep. Lucky for us though, the internet is full of sage advice and a little nugget of wisdom has been doing the rounds lately. Apparently, this sleepy lotion from Lush is the secret to a peaceful night’s sleep.
Obviously, if the internet says it, then it must be true. But, to be safe, we thought we’d give this bad boy a test drive. The results? After a couple of weeks of less than adequate sleep (and the associated eye bags) we were suddenly sleeping like a puppy by the fire! So what is it, and how does it work?
What is it?
Lush sleepy body lotion is made with a soothing blend of lavender flower, oatmeal infusion, fair trade organic butter, jojoba oil, almond oil and tonka absolute.
Priced at $16.50 (AUD) for a 95g tub, you certainly get bang for your buck with this product.
Plus, being from Lush, it’s totally organic.
How does it work?
Easy, smooth the lotion over your entire body before bed, pop on your pyjamas and slip into bed!
On a more serious note, the power of the lotion rests in its soothing scent, particularly lavender. Research has found that lavender is linked with a reduction in blood pressure, and heart and respiratory rates. It has also been shown to relax muscles and reduce stress levels, which of course helps with sleeping well.
So there you have it, this stuff is magic, and it works. We definitely won’t be looking back - a good night’s sleep and no eye bags is a win for everyone!
