I know it’s said all the time, but I bloody love sleeping. Bed is my favourite. But I used to feel like I didn’t get enough sleep, and even when I did it would be broken and full of really lucid dreams, meaning I woke up tired anyway. So I decided to start trialling some sleep products to see if they helped. Since it’s (apparently) World Sleep Day today, I figured what better time to tell you all about sleep products, right?
1. The Beauty Chef SLEEP Powder
This powder tastes a bit weird, but if you mix it with warm milk it’s *kind* of like a turmeric latte? Regardless, if you want better sleep this is EXTREMELY GOOD. I find it zonks me out quick-smart and I wake up feeling well rested.
2. Thisworks Sleep Plus Pillow Spray
Honestly, this spray is LIFE. Thisworks have a regular Deep Sleep pillow spray which is also great, but I got a sample of this Plus version and feel like I crash super quick when I use it. You just mist onto your pillows before bed, and the delish lavender scent is delightful regardless.
3. Slip Silk Pillowcase
This is less about sleep quality and more about hair/skin, which like – yes I want to wake up with good hair and great skin, right? I swear by silk pillowcases – I’ve used them for years now and I genuinely find they help my hair stay frizz-free and most importantly, keep my dry skin from feeling tight in the morning. They don’t absorb your skincare, meaning it stays on your face.
4. Laniege Lip Sleeping Mask
I get dry lips CONSTANTLY, and while I have my ride-or-die lip balm, this is excellent as an overnight treatment. The sticky formula stays on until morning and I genuinely feel like there’s a vast improvement.
5. Aspect Gold Probiotic Sleep Mask
I use this mask when my skin feels extra dry or irritated – it’s soothing and works overnight to fix up the skin barrier.
6. L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist
This is my second go-to for sleep pillow mists, there’s HEAPS in the bottle (Thisworks have smaller bottles so I use that one more sparingly) and the smell is beyond – like you’re in a country manor and about to fall asleep on 40 duck feather pillows.Image: Breakfast At Tiffanys
