Sleep-deprived parents, night-owls, shift-workers and the perpetually tired have been singing the praises of a product they say guarantees them a good night’s sleep.
And it’s not a pill, a white noise machine or an expensive piece of new technology. No, it’s a body lotion.
The queens and kings of all things hand-made, good-smelling and skin-loving at Lush have created a moisturising cream aptly named ‘Sleepy’ specifically for before-bed use.
With oatmeal, cocoa butter and lavender water, it’s described as smelling of “sugar plums and hot drinks topped with whipped cream”.
Simply slather some on, rest your head on the pillow and drift off into a peaceful night of sleep.
Sounds too good to be true right? We were just as sceptical. Until we saw the dozens of positively glowing reviews on Lush’s UK website.
“I have been using my small pot from Christmas sparingly – only when I was really stressed, or really having trouble falling asleep. That should tell you a bit about the magic of this lotion. It smells like sweet lavender and just makes you take a deep breath after you take a whiff,” shared one fan.
“This, in my opinion, is the best body lotion lush has to offer! …The scent straight out of the pot is sweet and then when you apply it it has a relaxing, heavenly lavender scent that puts me right to bed!” gushed another.
