My Holy Grail Sleep Product: LUSH Sleepy

My Holy Grail Sleep Product: LUSH Sleepy

Hands down, this product is a life sleep saver. Oh, you haven’t heard of LUSH Sleepy? Don’t you know what this amazing product is? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
Ok, so let me get started. A couple months backLUSH Sleepy was a very sought after product. The multiple stores that I went to, all sold out. Therefore I ended up buying it online, annoyingly as LUSH shipping is never free. 

What is it?

Sleepy is a body lotion from LUSH and its main ingredients are oatmeal, almond and lavender. Which is the perfect bedtime combo if you ask me! I’m not sure if it was originally marketed as a sleep-inducing product. But it sure is now. You can pick it up for £7.95/95g or £13.95/215g. You can buy it >>here<<

So after a couple of months using it. With continuous promotion across my socials telling you all how amazing it is. I thought why not dedicate a post to this beaut. And I would genuinely recommend this to anyone with sleeping issues.

How do I use it?

Well my first use, I thought I would need to smother myself in it. So I coated my arms, hands, upper body and face in the product. As I thought no point putting it on my legs when I couldn’t smell that far. However, I woke up with rash/spots all over my face. And I knew it was from this. So top tip don’t put this on your face if you have sensitive skin (or even mildly sensitive skin).

Nowadays I take a pea size amount and apply it to my forearms and hands. As this is the only area that I would smell it easily (I sleep with my arms/hands realll close to my face). And honestly, you really don’t need a lot of this stuff for it to be effective.

Why do I think LUSH Sleepy is my holy grail sleep product?

Well, the other night I was having stress-induced sleeping problems. I literally couldn’t sleep. No matter what I tried. Just couldn’t. And I remembered that Sleepy literally knocks me out. So at 1 am, I apply this to my arms and hands like I would most evenings ~ if I remember. And by 1:30 am, I’m asleep. Had amazing night sleep and everything.
My boyfriend also struggles with sleeping. He has very broken sleep and wakes up feeling exhausted. So whenever he is round I encourage him to apply some of this. One morning he woke up saying it was the best sleep he had. And you know what. It was because he applied this stuff.

So If you are on the bench of buying LUSH Sleepy, take this as a huge recommendation as to why you should buy it. Yeah, it’s not amazingly cheap, but LUSH isn’t. And if you do exactly what I do and apply a tiny amount, this will last you a long time. And if you have tried LUSH Sleepy let me know your experience in the comments below!

    So cute! I love lush so this will be added to my Christmas list.

    Will definitely be getting myself some of this, sounds amazing 😊

    Oh, I’m definitely having a lot of sleeping problems! I think I need to get my hands on this. Yes it’s a little expensive but if you are only using a pea size then surely it would last a good time. For me just the sound of the combination of ingredients sounds like it would drop you off to sleep quite easily. Might have to invest in this!

    I love Lush! I’m currently using the Bath and Body Works Sleep aromatherapy lotion but I can’t wait to give this a go.

    I really need to buy this! My only problem is when I went Lush and the man made me trying I was so disappointed with the scent that I didn’t buy it then lol hopefully I can get over the smell and buy it because it sounds so good xxx

    I need this so badly, I get such bad sleep anxiety with my illness and sometimes have to take medication to just knock me out, haha! This would be such a damn lifesaver if it worked. Going to be trying this ASAP!

    I’ve used this product a few times and whilst it works really well I just couldn’t get over the smell as I’m not a fan of lavender smells really x

    I’ve heard SO many amazing things about this product. I’d love to try it out but at the same time, floral scents tend to make me feel a bit sick for some reason. It would be worth a purchase if it does work though, I don’t have trouble actually falling asleep but I do tend to wake up throughout the night so maybe it’d help me get a proper full sleep.

    I purchased this a couple of months back and I really do love it – I found it helps me drift to sleep really quickly, and my boyfriend sleeps better whenever I wear it next to him! 🙊 Although it doesn’t seem to help me stay asleep, which is another issue I have, the sleep I do get is solid and blissful.. 😍

    I recently got this in a PR bag but have yet to try it! I’m a huge believer in using natural remedies like tea and such to help you feel more energetic, fall asleep easier or relieve a headache and I think this is definitely something people with sleep problems should try. Oh and applying this on the bottom of your feet might actually be a really good idea! That’s where you’re supposed to apply essential oils to help you sleep so I think it would work the same way with this. I tried it a few years ago and was able to fall asleep really fast and actually stay asleep – usually it takes me an hour and I wake up at least twice during the night. I can’t wait to give this a go :)x

    I LOVE Sleepy (as I love all things Lush and lavender scented) but I use their Twilight body spray as my holy grail sleeping product!

    I’ve seen this product a lot, especially in the press and my friend got her hands on it and said it didn’t do anything for her which I was super disappointed to hear but after reading your review I think I need this. My boyfriend is in the Navy so I’m home alone 95% of the time since he works away – I struggle to sleep, not because I’m scared or something I think its just comfort. This would be a good idea though using something like this. I might have to grab it this weekend! Thank you for your review xxx

    I’ve said it before but I absolutely LOVE your blog!! Your photography is beautiful. I definitely need to try Sleepy! x
