Life | Lush Sleepy

Sleep is that one thing you take for granted until you really struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep. Trust me, we all deny it but you will never understand how much you value sleep until it's not that easy anymore.

Welcome to my life, falling asleep is difficult, and staying asleep for more than an hour or two is a nightmare. I'm on medication that is meant to help me sleep, and I have tried everything. Some things will work for a week or two, but then I'm back into my old cycle.

Everybody, who's anybody, told me how much I needed to try Sleepy from Lush and how much of a difference it would make for me. I finally caved just before we went to Florida and I almost haven't looked back!

Lush promise that their lotion made up of oatmeal, lavender flower, sweet tonka, lavender cool water, and cocoa butter will help me sleep better! I'm not going to lie, this is one of the best lotions I have used on my skin in a long, long time. It's super nourishing and my skin can't get enough of it and feels absolutely gorgeous when I wake up. Quick note though, Lush, please stop packing all your products full of glitter.

I find falling asleep a lot easier when I'm wearing Sleepy, and for the first few hours, I definitely stay asleep for a bit longer! Because of all the glitter though, I cannot wear this on the nights before I'm at work the next morning; I find it easier to shower at night okay? I find myself reaching for Sleepy on those nights when I'm struggling more than most. The sad truth is that sleep and I lost touch a long time ago now, and I'm almost used to life without it, but Sleepy really does help put us back in touch, even if only for a short while...
