GOOD NIGHT SLEEP ESSENTIALS

Wednesday, 5 February 2014



February nights can be a quite dull and blah. For me there is not much going on and feelings can get a bit low. So a good relaxing night time bath can do the trick to perk me up, even if it only last for a while. That's why I have made it a habit to have a bath about 3 times a week.
There is just something so soothing to the soul when you submit your body into super hot steaming water that smells of Lavender.
Pure bliss, right?

One of the things I have rediscovered are bath salts. I used to love the feeling of poring bath salt into the water and get that prickling feeling but then I discovered bath oils and how rich they can smell and stuck with them for a while. Until I saw some new Lavender Bath Salts that Avon are doing now. It sounded just like my thing as I love Lavender so much so I had to give it a try. And gosh is this nice. The smell is just so relaxing and makes any bad day happenings go away.

From the same Avon Planet Spa Sleep Serenity Line comes a pillow spray that reminds me of the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray that I have had my eyes on for some time.
While it doesn't smell exactly like the This Works one because of its Chamomile content, I still think its a great alternative to it. Its only a fraction of the price (£4,50 instead of £16 for the This Works one) and really does the trick into wanting to bury your head into your pillow and close your eyes.
Lavender and me are like the best friends ever and I could never get tired of smelling it.

One more thing I like to do in the evening after I come out of my bath its to put on a good deep cleansing clay mud mask. I have leaned the trick that its best to put on a clay mask like the Origins Clear Improvements Mask when your taking a hot bath or shower and your pores are open. As the mask dries on your face you can really feel how it sucks out all the dirt and gunk that can block your pores. And the Origins one has to be the best clay mask that I have tried yet. It does a brilliant job cleaning my face and doesn't leave my skin dry as some other clay mask can do.

I hope you liked my little bath time routine, I would be really interested what works for you to make your evening stress free or if you also have a little  bed time routine going?

  2. lighting up some candles and sipping tea definitely play a big part of my evening de-stress ritual. I also love that Origins face mask, it's one of the best I've tried! I also really like This Works Deep Sleep Stress Less roller ball. I have to try out that pillow spray too!

  10. All I want to do is go and climb in the bath and have a pamper session now! I never go to bed early but if I had that to look forward to I might just do it and sleep better as a result. Thanks for the nudge x

  16. Agreed, lavender is one of my favorite scents as well. It's so relaxing. This whole blog post is the perfect "how-to" guide on pampering yourself, which is important to do! :)

  18. Ooh, this is such a handy post. I've always had trouble sleeping, so it might be worth trying out a few of these for myself.

    Have you ever tried the 'Twilight' bathbomb from Lush? It's absolutely amazing and I always have such a good sleep after using that. They've made it so when it's fizzing in the bath, it looks like a sunset turning into night and at the end your bath is this gorgeous sparkly indigo colour. Really clever and really pretty! (... Or maybe I'm just easily pleased :D)

  21. Lavender Salt Bath sounds so nice since I only tried milky salt bath before. I have not tried pillow sprays. Maybe this is a nice idea to fall asleep easily with its aromatic smell. But I want to check out any deep cleansing clay mud mask because I have heard good reviews about it.

  23. The Origins charcoal mask is good but I find it a little drying sometimes. I personally love the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque and think it's worth every penny. If you haven't tried it already, I would highly recommend that you do!
