Do you struggle going to sleep at night? Do you often find it hard to relax after a days work or unwind at the weekend? I did too – until I came across relaxation in a box… Twilight from Lush. It’s every insomnia sufferer’s dream.
I’ve always suffered with relaxing, and even more so sleeping. When I was younger it got so bad, I had to have a lavender candle burning in my room. I’ll never know whether it worked or it just had a placebo affect on me, but since then I’ve known lavender was a really important factor in helping me unwind.
Knowing this and being someone who admits to getting stressed very easily, I wasn’t surprised when I got given Lush’s Twilight gift box for my birthday. It’s relaxation in a box, and includes everything you need… especially if you’re a bad sleeper.
SOWHAT’S IN THE BOX?
Before we even get inside the box, the Twilight gift set is wrapped in the most gorgeous, colourful knot wrap. Not only does it look good, it almost mirrors the wonderful dreams you’ll soon be having after you use their products, it can also be used as a headscarf.
TWILIGHT BATH BOMB
Once unwrapped, you’ll find the bath bomb Twilight. It’s a round, beautiful lilac bomb with stars and moon engravings. As you drop it in the water, it changes your bath water to a magical deep purple. It’s filled with a lavender fragrance with caramel malt milk to help clear your mind and soothe your skin.
SLEEPY SHOWER GEL
Not a bath fan? No problem. If you prefer showers you’ll find the Sleepy shower gel inside the gift box. This rich, purple coloured shower gel features lavender, sweet tonka, oak milk and other natural ingredients to help you wash away your worries.
SLEEPY BODY LOTION
Once out of your bath or shower, you can use the most dreamy lotion to really moisture your skin and feel relaxed. It’s made with creamy oat milk, lavender, and tonka, as well as fair trade cocoa butter. I find this to be the best product in the set and I love to cover my skin in it just before going to sleep. I find it’s so relaxing and smells lovely, and really sets me up for a great sleep.
TWILIGHT BODY SPRAY
If you’ve ever had those days where you feel anxious and need help relaxing, the body spray is really good. Again filled with lavender, this spray will help you smell wonderful and feel wonderful. Not only do I spray it on myself, I sometimes spray a little on my pillow when I’m really struggling to sleep!
These will by no means cure insomnia, anxiety or reduce your stress levels but it might help you feel more relaxed and sleep better. Not only that, they’re amazing products for your skin, so the benefits just keep on coming!
