The trick to sweet dreams.

I finally tried the magical lotion that has quickly become a cult favorite.

My arch nemesis? Sleep.

I have tried everything from melatonin chews, sleepy-time tea, white noise machines, soft music… the list goes on and on (and on and on)

So when Lush’s lavender-infused “Sleepy” location started flying off the shelves, at first I didn’t think anything of it. I’ve already tried dabbing lavender essential oil on my pillowcases approximately nine billion times. Sure, lavender is soothing and it smells nice. Everyone knows that.

But then the buzz about this so-called magical location kept growing. Originally designed to be  a limited edition, the demand was so high that Lush committed to keeping it on an ongoing basis. Naturally, I broke down and tried it out. And yes, it is as glorious as everyone claims.

Here’s the scoop. On a particularly sleepless night, I lathered a bit of the ultra-thick purple cream on my arms, neck and chest. There is a small trace of that standard lavender scent but it is not quite like any other lotion or oil I’ve smelt before. Probably because of the addition of oatmeal, almond oil and jojoba oil. My first reaction? This is so soothing! Also, it did not irritate my skin like some other scented locations do. Truthfully, there wasn’t much time for me to observe the lotion because I was completely asleep within minutes.

This had to be  fluke, I thought when I woke up the following morning. So the next night, I used it again. And again. And again. I tested it out for 10 nights in a row. Every night I fell asleep before I knew it.

Is it a placebo? Possibly. Will it work for everyone? Probably not. But is this amazing-smelling location really worth $19.55 for a 210g container if you are a rough sleeper? Absolutely.

Have you tried this? What did you think of it? I would love to hear your comments on Sleepy.
