This Works Deep Sleep

There are many stereotypes when it comes to me--Lillian. Sizably, most initial conversations begin with 'oh, you're the dancer,' or, 'she's a dancer,' when it comes to introductions. Among my closest friends I'm also the chick who can't sleep.
Yet, I don't mean night owl; I'm talking about the type that rises at seven A.M.--no matter what time I began counting sheep (and I can bet that I didn't get past five).

I'm also such a beauty nerd and emit favorable behavior when it comes to studies. Seventy eight percent of participants 'had a deeper sleep;' eighty percent 'felt less tired in the morning.' I knew the drug in mention deserved a spot on my nightstand. It's the ThisWorks Deep Sleep range.
I've been lusting over everything from the bath soak to the candle for well over a year now and now my grubby little paws have both the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and Stress Less tangible (a duo packed as the Deep Sleep Pillow Talk set).

As I've tested both constituents for the past month, I tend to strain for the Pillow Spray more.
With a few spritzes of this lavender, vetivert, patchouli, and chamomile liquid, the aroma instantly eases a little strain. How? I have no idea; but, remarkably, I'm never one to fall for aromatherapy promises and, I'll admit, this is certainly no placebo.

With a further induced drift of zzz's, I'll provide a little warning: do not use this stuff on weekdays--there's simply no hope of rising without a groggy finish.
Then, there's the Stress Less rollerball. Although I don't tend to get as much use out of this bottle, the packaging is destined for portable carrying. Housed in a permanent spot on my desk and a carved hole in my makeup bag for voyaging.

Both smell quite similar, but the Stress Less provides a scent of pure lavender with a hint of frankincense dashed in as opposed to the other formulation of a less exclusive essential. Yet, both formulations are made using one hundred percent pure essential oils and free from phthalates, sulphates, synthetic colors and fragrance, parabens, GMOs, mineral oils, petrolatum, and propylene glycol.

So while I don't think anything will cure my connotation (which possibly suggests while sleepovers are a rareity), I crown the Pillow Talk set as the duo that keeps me asleep longer, and, notably, for a girl who likes a good pamper, makes bedtime more luxurious, as well. Maybe the 'girl with the crazy aromatherapy oils' will become a new stereotype....


  1. I've always heard such great things about this line, but I can't go near them due to lavender being a major culprit in my breakouts. If my sleeping habits get worse I might buy the spray, and use it on my second pillow which I don't come into contract with though!


  2. I NEED this, I sleep so badly and I would be willing to try anything to help! x

    P.S. I don't want this to be spammy but I am also hosting a £50 Giveaway at the moment if you wanted to enter here

  3. i think i should try this as sleep isn't something i've been getting a lot of recently xxx


  4. I use both of these every night and have been doing so for the past two months. I absolutely love them! My sleep has definitely got deeper and they put me in the mood to actually try and sleep. The Stress Less is also really good when you're out and about and need to relax, I pop it on my wrists and neck. The scent really works wonders for calming me down x


  5. Pillow sprays and sleepy balms are my best friends. I like to keep some in my bag for when my anxiety gets the best of me. I'm currently lusting over Jo Malone's Just Like Sunday Lavender & Lovage candle which sounds dreamy before bed. The Incense & Embers offering sounds pretty damn good too.

  6. I put 1-2 drops of lavender essential oils on my pillow and usually it does the trick :) I don't do it everyday though, but when I feel I might have problem sleeping or when I have to wake up early.

  7. I have been hearing so much about pillow sprays and sleeping balms, I really need to give one a go! xx

    I love this spray. I suffer from anxiety and the roller ball helps me to just calm, focus and get my head straight again. I am not sure how affective it is in falling asleep but the pillow spary certainly calms you down. Maybe try the website 'calm.com' i do a 5min session and I always drift off to sleep.

  10. These are products I've been hoping to get my hands on. I definitely need a little help with sleep! xx

  11. I'm glad it worked for you. I found that for me it kept me from sleeping to be really honest. Perhaps the scent is too heavy for me, who knows. I do like pillow sprays though.

  12. That's so strange. Maybe it's something for daytime use. And pillow sprays just seem so luxurious. xo

  13. This Works spray has a lot of good reviews, it's on my wish list. I've tried The Body Shop Deep Sleep, that one doesn't do anything for me. But, I've been using Primavera Sleep Therapy balm for the past week and I quite like it. Smells lovely, it has a nice texture and most importantly - I think it works. You should try it :)
