#AD Revlon Big & Bouncy

As my sleep pattern varies so regularly from brilliant, out-like-a-light-in-an-instant to waking far too early, up and down in the night with no particular rhyme or reason to it that I can tell, anything that I can use to promote consistently good sleep is great with me. Having cut out wheat from my diet about six weeks ago, while dropping a stack of weight (great) and doubling my energy it seems to have had a negative effect on my sleep pattern, so I’m not getting even nearly as much as I should at the moment, waking as early as 5am most days. I can’t complain too much though as I’m full of beans with no slumps in the day any more. 

I’m already a huge fan of This Works Deep Sleep range for its lavender fuelled relaxing ritual and its efficacious skin care, so it is great news that four new products are being introduced in September. I’ve had a sneaky preview of them and they tick all the boxes for doing a proper evening wind-down that sets the scene for great nights sleep. Coming up are This Works Deep Sleep Shower Gel, £15, filled with Vetivert, Chamomile and Lavender with a boost of coconut oil to soften the skin. It leaves a delicate scent on the skin that’s everything pretty. This Works Deep Sleep Night Oil, £25, is a nourishing body oil with Lavender, Vetivert and Chamomile and again, perfumes the skin with sleep inducing aromas. Next up is Deep Sleep Stress Less multi-purpose aromatherapy blend with Eucalyptus, Frankincense and Lavender Oil to take the edge of stressy feelings; at £12 it’s a bit of a snip, and if you buy one thing from the range, I’d highly recommend it. Finally, there is Deep Sleep Dream Cream, £18, a delicious omega 3 packed scented cream that is a little too heavy on Chamomile for my taste but very cocooning and soothing for both skin and senses. 

I’m looking forward to hopefully boosting my sleep just a little bit with an arsenal of sleepy time treats. 

The range has already launched on Victoria Health but has wider availability from September.

  1. So glad you reviewed this! I’d been eyeing off bits and pieces from the range when it appeared on my pillow at a hotel in Paris and now I’m addicted. Definitely need to buy more – the boyfriend in particular takes ages to go to sleep and always takes a shower in the evenings, so the shower gel sounds like a MUST.

  2. ‘This Works’ really does work! i had a pillow spray and calming roller ball thingy on my pillow in a hotel once that I swiftly pocketed which was brilliant. Sadly it soon ran out and I have been hunting for a replacement as my sleeping pattern is terrible (note to others, the Neals Yard ‘remedies to roll’ Night time doesn’t have a patch on This works!) Can’t wait to get my mits on this!

A recent discovery is the brand new Deep Sleep range from This Works, created by ex-Vogue Health & Beauty Director, Kathy Phillips, who is thoroughly nice. That always helps I think, if you know the person behind the brand is actually a likeable person. Anyway, she showed her range to a group of bloggers last week – and it was the night before I had to be up at 3.30am to catch a super-early flight so it got put to the test as soon as I got home. 

The Deep Sleep Bath Soak, £22, is delicious – full of lavender, chamomile and vetivert infused salts that are pretty power packed: the smell is strong and soothing and makes you do that ‘aahhh’ thing when you get in the bath. I topped up my sleep chances for good measure with the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, £15, spritzed on my pillow and sure enough, I slept almost immediately. Obviously, not for that long because 3.30am in anyone’s book is cruel. There is also a Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle (but I’m never sure about sleeping with lit candles..I’m sure you are supposed to blow it out first or something sensible but if you’re catatonic it’s likely not to happen) and Sleep Balm. 

Although so far those are the only two items I’ve tried (and there is some new skin care as well), I’d hand on heart recommend the Deep Sleep Bath Soak and Pillow Spray straight away.

£1.50 from each sale of Pillow Spray goes directly to Kid’s Company – another good reason to sleep well.

  1. Any beauty products which help me sleep, or at least help to relax me before bed, are a good buy in my book. I nearly always sleep well after a nice hot bath anyway, but some lovely scented products in the water is just too good to pass up!
