As you can guess, thisworks Sleep Plus is an extension of the hugely successful thisworks Sleep range – Deep Sleep Pillow Spray has helped many a sleepless body drift off. So, what the brand has done with this collection is combined sleep promotion with de-ageing. The word ‘de-age’ is a bit jarring – I get if it’s smoothing and hydrating, etc, but I don’t know.. it doesn’t fit right.
I love the idea of using a body cream to help with sleep after a lovely warm bath, and I know that Deep Sleep is one of those clever combinations that can genuinely slip you off into the land of nod so putting the two together is a great idea. The Dream Body Cream does contain retinol and amino acids – and I’ve used it, so can say that you do have delightfully soft skin the next day but it’s rather a small tube at 75ml, so I’ve been doing my arms only.
Trouble Shooter is designed for small areas only – again, it’s infused with the Deep Sleep oils and targets knees, elbows and any dry bits with hyaluronic and vitamin E. I can’t say that I really noticed a huge difference, but then, maybe it’s a cumulative effect.
Finally, Sleep Plus Hair Elixir – and no to that! Personally, I don’t mind oils in my hair and it’s not a particularly oily formula considering that it contains Argan, Jojoba and Baobab, but I don’t want my hair to smell like that all night long. It’s obviously a personal preference, but it’s quite a pungent aroma and there’s a little bit of a hayish smell (chamomile I think, which can be quite earthy). I think it would keep me awake!
The collection launches on 29th February (prices are: Dream Body £25, Trouble Shooter £35 and Hair Elixir £29). It’s an interesting concept so I am keen to see how this range goes.
