Unlike the other 38% of Britain, I do not class myself as a good sleeper. I tend to have a lot of trouble going to sleep at night and I’ve had problems sleeping since I was little. This always intensifies during stressful periods of my life and more recently, exam season. As much as I know that I need to get a good night of sleep before an exam, it’s not always possible. When it comes to an exam that I’m particularly worried about, the butterflies in my stomach often get the better of me and I spend a good part of the night tossing and turning in bed, the blanket ending up on the other side of the room and me staring up at the ceiling, in near tears at the fact that I can’t get to sleep.
Mam’s always been good in the sense that any time I have trouble sleeping, she’ll stay up with me and help me get back to sleep and she’ll do everything that she can to help me get a bit of a better night. This lead to her picking up This Works: Deep Sleep Pillow Talk from Boots for me. My sister had used one of the products from this line before and found that it had really helped her, so I was keen to use it and see if it would make a different to my sleeping pattern.
This lovely duo contain their deep sleep pillow spray and deep sleep stress less mini roller. The pillow spray is used exactly how it says on the bottle, you just spray the mist over your pillows. In my case it went over my pillow and the top half of my mattress, since I don’t tend to sleep on my pillows. The spray smells of lavender, but thankfully the smell isn’t too strong since I’m not a huge fan of the smell. I found it quite comforting to be honest and it was a smell that helped me calm down if I was beginning to panic.
The roller is meant to be applied to pulse point, so I applied it to both of my wrists. The scent was similar to that of the pillow spray, if not exactly the same. However, it did end up helping me as well, as I tend to sleep with my hand supporting my head. The roller is meant to help by helping you breathe easily and calming your senses.
All in all, I did feel like this duo was something that did help me sleep at night. However, I feel the roller is something that I would be more likely to keep in my bag to help me out if I’m having a stressful day rather applying it at night since I didn’t think that there was a massive amount of difference between that and the spray.
If you are looking for something that will help you calm down and relax at night, I genuinely do think that this is something that will really help.
