Last year my mam bought this product from the avon brochure and I'm sure it was on offer as we tend to buy allot of offers. A few months later she gave this to me as she had only used it one. One night I wanted to give it ago so I sprayed this into my pillow a few times the smell was great not over powering very relaxing but nothing else I didn't go to sleep straight away and my sleep was normal nothing special about it no difference? I would still use this from time to time but not really every night I just like the smell of it. It lasts you a really long time as it goes far you only need to use 2-3 sprays and if you use more it would be quite over powering. For a few pound I won't complain but for me it didn't work
Most of the time I can drop off to sleep almost straight away but there are times when I just can't seem to empty my head of thoughts and worries and I seem to be awake for hours, although I am sure it is not really that long. Even though it is dark and quiet my mind is sometimes so active that it just won't switch off. I have often used these pillow sprays as a way of relaxing and comforting and find that they do help me to drift back off to sleep.
I bought this Avon Sleeptherapy Goodnight Pillow Mist last year and think it was around £2.50 and was around half price at the time. The plastic bottle is 125ml and is in shades of purple with a picture of a cloud and stars. It contains blends of essential oils including lavender which help you to relax and unwind and the fragrance is floral and sweet and quite feminine.
You can either spray it in the centre of the room or directly onto your pillow and I have used it both these ways, but usually directly onto my pillow. I will hold the can about eight to ten inches above my pillow and then press the nozzle to release the spray which comes out in a very fine mist and seems to cover quite a wide area. I find that I only have to spray once to cover the whole of my pillow. Although the spray is obviously liquid it is so fine that it doesn't feel wet as it must absorb directly into the pillow. It doesn't leave any marks or stains however if do have satin sheets I probably wouldn't recommend it as it might leave a mark on these.
I am not sure whether it is the aromatherapy oils which contained in the product but I do find that I relax much quicker when I have sprayed this. I will sometimes spray it before I get in bed if I know I have a lot on my mind, and I have also used it if I have woken up in the night and have not been able to get back to sleep again. I keep it in my bedside drawer so I will just sit up in bed and give the pillow a quick spray and then lie back down and shut my eyes. It does give me a feeling of calmness and well being, I love the smell of the fragrant oils and it does help me to relax and get back to sleep.
From time to time, I suffer really badly from Insomnia. I can go months when I sleep perfectly fine and even sleep in for hours because I am exhausted, but then I will have a spell of a few weeks when I am up in bed until 3am just lying in bed tossing and turning because my mind just won't drift off to sleep!
I had seen this Sleeptherapy Pillow Mist in the Avon Catalogue numerous times, but as my insomnia never seemed so bad I figured it was a waste of money to actually buy it. I later on saw it in my mums house, and she was clearing out some crap and she said I could have it so I figured I would give it a try!
It comes in a clear, plastic bottle which is pretty similar to the room and linen sprays in the Avon range. It could easily pass for some kind of air freshener or furniture polish, so it surely isn't the most attractive packaging!
The directions for use are quite simple - the spray is to be dispersed directly onto the pillow before bedtime and it is meant to be a "soothing fragrance" to help you drift off to sleep. At the same time it can be used to refresh your home! Now this is already a conflicting suggestion as I wouldn't want to be spraying this around my living room if it is meant to help me doze off!
Nevertheless I decided to give it a go. The spray comes out in quite a watery mist, one which projects quite a lot and I can see the little droplets descend in the air onto the pillow, not like an aerosol which almost comes out as a gas but not quite a fine spray which usually disperses very fine scents. The quality is quite good as it doesn't stain pillows but I would be hesitant on using it on any silk pillows I may have!
I used this last month as it was a late night and I just didn't feel tired at all despite knowing I would need to be up at 7am the next day to get my daughter ready for school and myself off to work. Watching endless episodes of Breaking Bad didn't help as it just got more and more interesting so around 2 am I decided to put down the computer and try and get some sleep! I sprayed this pillow mist, and was impressed actually at the scent, its very subtle, so not in your face and overpowering, with a warm, sensual floral kind of scent, that I can best describe as being nuzzled in my grandmothers bosom! It almost encompasses a sort of warm, soothing smell which is homely and would probably make any other normal person sleepy but sadly it didn't work for me as I continued to toss and turn for a further half hour!
The spray is good quality, although in my opinion it certainly is more designed for a female recipient than a male as it does not really come across as a unisex scent. The mist seems to be discontinued on the website but I am sure my mum bought it for around £2 or so on one of the frequent offers Avon can do on their ranges. I have seen its selling on eBay for around £4 which I personally think is over priced as it didn't work for me, so I wouldn't recommend it in a hurry.
I'm reviewing Avon Sleeptherapy spray.
On the Avon site is selling for £2.70p.....reduced from £4.50.
I was given this by my Avon rep at Christmas and after a few weeks of sleepless nights in February I decided to try it out.
***WHAT IT IS***
It is a spray which comes in a tall thin clear plastic bottle containing 125 ml.
The fluid itself is very slightly tinted blue/lavender and is of course perfumed.
One of the labels has fluffy clouds and stars in a night sky portrayed on it to indicate the purpose of the product.
***USING and MY OPINION.***
You are advised to spray this on your pillow or sheets from a distance of 15cms (that's 6" in old money).
Or you can aim two or three squirts toward the centre of the room.
I tried the "centre of room " method first since I'd just changed my sheets and pillowcases and wasn't keen on messing fresh bedding up by spraying them with an unknown quantity.
Nothing. There was a faint aroma for about 10 minutes then it was gone.And I couldn't sleep.
Next night I sprayed a hearty 5 or 6 sprays round the bedroom.
This was slightly better in that the smell lingered longer,but I still remained totally wakeful.
Finally I decided that I'd try it directly on my pillow . I did as directed....sprayed the pillow and waited for it to dry before getting into bed.
This time the fragrance lasted , but then it would when it was continually within inches of my nose I suppose.
But it didn't help me get to sleep, and in fact my husband awoke choking and complained about the smell affecting him (he has reflux and some perfumes etc trigger it). So I ended up getting up to change my pillow case at silly-o-clock in the morning. I didn't care either way, since I was awake anyway (rolls eyes) ,but not a great scenario considering the product was meant to relax one into sleep.
So my experience of this was not good .Personally I found the fragrance just OK , as in bearable,but to be frank it smelled like a half heartedly fragranced cleaning product.
Like I said earlier, this is slightly lavender tinted, and Avon have used lavender and purple see-through labels on the bottle in an attempt to emphasise the lavender (relaxing) theme....... which is a waste of time in my opinion because I detected not one iota of lavender in the fragrance . I can't even say what it DID smell of really ,other than possibly air freshener.
Add to all that the fact that it caused a nasty reflux reaction in my partner and I'm afraid this product has been moved from my bedside drawer to the bathroom cabinet ,and is still more or less full. Such a waste.
I might use it as a bathroom spray to avoid wasting it, but otherwise in my opinion this is not fit for purpose.
This MIGHT work for others, but definitely did not for me and while I found the smell ok and would have given it 2 stars for that alone I must take into account the ill effect on my partner. So it gets a basic one star only. Sorry Avon,not one of your better products in my opinion.
Thank you for reading and I hope it was helpful to someone~~~myloh.
I was given a bottle of avon lavender sleep mist from my mum, a few years ago now around the time of some exams. I'm going to be honest... I still have the same bottle! My mum is very much into aromatherapy, essential oils etc. I've found it hard to get into this type of thing, I'm not sure why. I've never really been able to believe that the hanky with some kind of essential oil splashed over it (for concentration apparently), which was pressed into my hand on exam days; or the lavender liberally applied to my pillow the night before, had any assistance! But I've never actually told her that, ok they smell pretty, but I don't think it really make a difference to anything.
I'm aware that lavender is supposed to be a relaxing scent which helps to ease you into the land of nod. Hence "sleep therapy" the line launched by Avon to help promote rest, relaxing and sleep. There are a variety of products which are lavender scented. One of them is this sleep mist, which comes in a silver coloured bottle with a spray top. The idea is that you spray the product lightly around your bed/pillows etc which helps you sleep. To be honest, I rarely have problems getting to sleep and have been known to sleep through an earthquake, whilst being about 3 miles from the epicentre - Dudley 2002! . If I do, it's likely that I'm mithering about something. On the odd occasion that I do have problems sleeping, I have got up in the night and given the lavender mist a spray around the room. I've never found this product to be that useful for assisting with sleep. I'm pretty sure that all the times I have used it, I've lain awake for significantly long periods of the night and that it had no effect at all.
It does have a upside in that it smells quite nice; however, I don't think it has anything on the smell of actual fresh lavender as it seems much more chemically. I also have a little lavender bag thing with dried lavender in it, from my sister (she also does the whole aromatherapy thing), which although I don't think it helps me to sleep, smells gorgeously summery!
I have had this product quite a long time and there is still about half the bottle left, probably because I don't use it very often, but just give it a bit of a half-hearted squirt into my room every now and then; but it seems to be a very economical product!
I flicked through the avon book recently and saw a revamped version of this product, retailing at £4.50. My overall verdict of this product is that it smells ok, but to be honest, I don't think it works for me. I certainly wouldn't purchase this product again.
===Bottle design is now a clear plastic bottle - the same as Avon's other room sprays===
Sleep Therapy Goodnight Pillow Mist.
Clear Plastic bottle with pump action spray and clear push on cap.
Liquid is a pale blue shade.
Semi opaque front label shows image of dark sky, clouds and stars.
Blue back label.
Instructions are to spray at least 15 cms away from fabric and allow to dry. Or to spray 2-3 times towards the centre of the room and away from your face and body.
125 mls and made in Poland.
Among other ingredients are alcohol denat and castor oil.
Avon's website states that it does not stain fabric.
Full price is £4.50 but currently on offer for £2.25.
Avon call it - 'A soothing fragrance to spray on your sheets before bedtime or refresh your home'.
Like many people I often have trouble dropping off to sleep and while I had tried these Sleep Therapy products many years ago I thought I would give them another chance.
There are three items in the Sleep Therapy range - this spray, a balm and also a shower gel.
The bottle has changed over the years and is now the same shape and style as the other room and linen sprays that Avon sells.
There is no mention of what this product contains that is supposed to aid sleep so obviously no essential oils or they would be highlighted on the label.
This can be used two ways - either as a room spray or to spray onto your bed linen.
On spraying the suggested 2-3 bursts into the centre of the room it is evident that it is a mild lavender aroma - possibly with other things blended in. Initially the smell is quite nice and relaxing but it does not last at all. Personally I would prefer to use it this way as I do not want to be spraying chemicals onto my pillow just before laying down my head.
I quite like the smell as a room spray but it does not last long enough. For spraying pillows I do not fancy using this mix of chemicals and would much prefer to buy some genuine Lavender Oil and just put a few drops on the pillow - it would be more natural and last longer. Also if you want a lovely lavender smell in your bedroom put some oil in an oil burner.
This spray did nothing to relax me or send me off to sleep better and I think money spent on this is wasted - get proper Lavender Oil instead.
Lavender oil aroma is known to relax you but this lavender smell does not stay around long enough to do anything.
===Would I Recommend?===
Not really - buy some Lavender Oil instead and have a more natural fragrance.
Once again I find myself struggling with sleep at the moment, and once again I've been trying to find something - anything - that will help.
Not having an Avon rep, I've not really followed what products Avon have offered over the last few years, but on checking out a catalogue round a friends I spotted this and asked her if she'd order me a bottle. I think it cost me about £5ish, but I'll be honest I can't remember 100%.
To be fair this I did buy this a couple of months ago during my last sleep deprived state, and I sort of put it away when it arrived as I was already sleeping ok again by that point. With my recent attack of sleeplessness, however, I raided the cupboard and decided to give it a go.
What do I get?
The bottle is fairly small, and is clear with a pump action top and a plastic click on lid. The liquid inside is a sort of pale lilac colour and contains a variety of ingredients that are supposed to help you sleep when you smell them. When you spray this you don't seem to use much at a time, so I think despite this being quite small, it will probably last for a fairly long time, especially as for me, I don't tend to need it ALL the time - I'll probably use it for a week or two while I'm not sleeping well, then I'll be ok for a few weeks and then it'll come out again for another use.
How do I use it?
To use it, you just spray a couple of spritz's onto your pillow before you settle down to sleep, and then the smell is supposed to help you relax and sleep better. The smell is a sort of fresh quite pleasant smell, a bit floral and not too heady or anything. I actually did find it fairly relaxing - more so than perhaps I thought I would.
Does it work?
It's hard to quantify how well or not something like this works I think, I've used this for a few nights now, and although I still find myself lying awake a fair bit, and I do wake a fair few times during the night. I don't seem to toss and turn as much while I was asleep however, and I haven't tangled myself in knots in the duvet which often happens when I'm very restless.
I have to admit that after a couple of nights of trying this alone, I have resorted to using this AND using quiet life at the same time, but I don't think it'll be a problem as the two things work in different ways and so will hopefully compliment each other. I have to say that in combination they do seem to be helping more than just one or the other does alone.
Is it worth the money?
Hard to say - yes I think so, it certainly seems to be more relaxing than some of the things I've tried over the years. I wouldn't say it's a cure for not sleeping or anything, more of an aid to better sleep really I guess. But it's not all that expensive and like I've said I think it'll last quite a while for me. To be honest though, anything that even aids my sleep slightly is worth it for me, as the less well I sleep, the more other conditions I have flare up such as my fibromyalgia.
Overall, I'd give it maybe a 7 out of 10... its fairly cheap and long lasting, it doesn't work brilliantly, but it's not doing me any harm and seems to help a little.
I have suffered with insomnia for a couple of years now. It all began when I was experiencing intense stress and since then I have had problems with it regularly. My Mum is an insomniac so I suppose it was only a matter of time!
The past few months I have been awake by 4 or 5am pretty much every day regardless of what time I got to sleep. I am on medication which makes me very drowsy throughout the day anyway so it is safe to say that some days I am no good to anyone and I am practically like a zombie.
Sleeptherapy Pillow Mist has been on offer from Avon for a few years now. I bought mine a few weeks ago when it was on offer for about £2.50.
The bottle is a clear plastic bottle with a pump spray. There is a clear snap on lid and the liquid inside is blue in colour. To use you simply spray onto your pillow when going to sleep. The scent is supposed to soothe you and help you relax which in turn should help you to drift off.
In all honesty I was pretty certain this product wouldnt work very well but I am pleased to say I was wrong! I usually use this when I wake up at 1 or 2am and cant get back to sleep which has been a common occurrence for me recently.
The pillow mist is a fine spray and it comes out in an even range covering the pillow well. I normally put 2 or 3 sprays on the pillow and then a couple in the air too and I find this is plenty. The scent is difficult to describe its sort of musky but almost a fresh very subtle floral scent too. Its a nice smell anyway!
I find that the scent does relax me and within half an hour I am usually back asleep which without the spray would be unlikely. The spray only works to help me to drift off, it does not aid me in a peaceful nights sleep and often after using the spray I will be awake again a couple of hours later but this is my body clock not the fault of the pillow mist!
I have used the mist probably 8 times now and the bottle still looks full so I think the bottle will last a while.
The mist doesnt stain and although it is a very light translucent blue colour it does not mark the pillow.
I do like this spray, I will continue to use it when I am having difficulty in sleeping and I will definitely buy another bottle when this one has ran out. I will wait for an offer and order then but I do think it is worth full price too because being unable to sleep is extremely frustrating and tiring and for a few pence it is worth the aid of drifting off with ease.
When it comes to sleeping, I do not have insomnia as such, but I can often find it difficult to drift off. This always tends to be days when I know I need to be up early, and I have tried many things to help aid my sleep. Many nights I can't drift off because I have too much on my mind, or I'm busy doing things around the house without realising the time. Because of this, I do often struggle to get to sleep quickly at a night time. It can vary from anywhere between half an hour and three hours for me depending on how I am feeling. When I was flicking through my Avon brochure the other day, I decided to pick up this Sleeptherapy goodnight pillow mist to see if it did the trick.
As this is from Avon, it is available through their brochures through a sales representative or online on their shop. Although they can sometimes be a nuisance to get hold of their products as you can not buy in store, I really do like the quality so I think it is worth the hassle sometimes. The RRP of this mist is £4.50 however I have never seen it advertised at full price. It is more than often half price or in a deal where you can buy various items for a set price. I paid £1.00 in a good deal and I think this is a fantastic price to pay.
The bottle arrive and I was quite excited as you get a generous 125ml worth of mist in the bottle. It comes in a clear spray bottle containing a purple shade of liquid. Using this was really easy, and I have found it one of the easiest methods of sleep aid. Previously I had tried balms but I found them a lot of hassle, so this is just simple. I do not use it every night, as I try not to rely on it too much. Those nights when I really just can't seem to get calm and tired, I spray two or three squirts of this on to my pillow. I hold it 30cm away as it can get the pillow a little wet. In addition to this, I spray three squirts just into the air around the room. I was a little dubious at first, as I thought it might just be a gimmicky product. However, to my surprise I was wrong.
This mist really did help me get to sleep. More than anything, it made me calm down and relax easier and took a load off my mind. It was amazing how the scent of this just made me get sleepy. It has a lavender fragrance, which is a scent often used in sleep therapies. I normally am not a fan of lavender, but this one is not too overpowering. When I can't get to sleep, I often normally find myself with headaches and feeling unwell. I was worried the scent of this may make it worse but thankfully it didn't. I have definitely found considerable improvements in my sleep since using this, and I will definitely be sticking to using this in the future.
It is not a miracle product, so don't expect a few sprays and to be in a deep sleep within seconds. It is just effective for calming you down, and sending you into sleep in your own time. I am not sure if this would be the cure for those suffering with quite severe insomnia, but it is something worth trying. I have now used mine around ten times and I have hardly used anything in the bottle. This is good as it means it will last a long while also.
Overall, I really have to recommend this Sleeptherapy goodnight pillow mist from Avon. After struggling with my sleep for many years, I have now found considerable improvement in my sleep routine. It has not fixed it completely, but it really helps me to drift off on those nights where you just can't get to sleep. It smells lovely, it is cheap to purchase and does the trick. Thanks for reading and hope it helps.
I used to be an Avon Rep and I ended up buying loads of products that I wouldn't usually of bought as I could buy items more cheaply before they went on general sale. I bought this product not long after having my second daughter as I was finding it hard adjusting to a baby again and having trouble being able to settle to sleep on a night.
The product is from Avon and there are a number of products within the sleeptherapy range, a pillow mist, a balm and a body wash all of which are supposed to help you drift off to sleep. The pillow mist at the moment sells for £4.50 a bottle although if you wait long enough you will find it comes on offer quite regularly.
The product comes in a silver metal bottle with a pump top on it for you to use to spray it onto your bed linen before you go to bed, there is a little plastic cap to go over the top too.
The spray is easy to use simply remove the plastic top and then use the pump top to squirt out the product, the bottle needs pumping a few times when you first get it to start the product coming through but after this it squirts out easily. When you spray the product onto your bed sheets or pillow case it does leave it a little damp but I actually find this quite nice as it them feels cold and refreshing.
The main scent of the spray is most definitely lavender but there are also other little flowery smells coming from it too, the smell is nice and calming and although I'm not sure it helped me drift off to sleep the scent is lovely and I did like to lay and breathe it slowly into my system.
I didn't end up using this product for very long as I did find after a few weeks I could drop off to sleep again without worrying too much about my baby daughter. I couldn't honestly say this helped me fall asleep but the smell was calming and it was a nice scent to have in the bedroom although my husband wasn't so keen. I will give this 4 stars as it is a lovely product even if you don't drift off to sleep you do feel calm enough to sleep.
Trouble with sleeping is something that I suffer from frequently. Sometimes I am sleeping for weeks on end without problems and then I'll gradually get to sleep later and later until I don't go to bed for an evening and then have to stay up to keep myself awake for bedtime. This can be quite a vicious cycle as once I become extremely tired I then find it difficult to sleep and again my problem continues or increases. I do have sleeping pills that I am prescribed, however, these leave me with a horrible taste in my mouth for the whole of the next day after use and they leave me feeling a little spaced for several hours after waking up too. Because of this I use pillow sprays and linen sprays to try and help me stay calm and relaxed while I am lying in bed at night trying to go to sleep.
This goodnight pillow mist is something that I was given by a wonderful friend and I was quite surprised at what a thoughtful little gift this was. This spray comes in a plastic bottle (recyclable after use) that looks really quite sweet sitting on my bedside table. This bottle has a night-time feel to it with it's purple, blue and silver looks and is quite pretty looking.
To use this spray is very simple, just remove the lid and then press down on the trigger dispenser. The mist is then released and should be spray on to your pillows and bed linen before leaving for a moment or two and then climbing in to bed to relax.
The scent of this really is a refreshing, relaxing one. I can detect the lavender and the other fragrances compliment one another and lead to a wonderful fresh, clean scent that makes me breathe a deep sigh and instantly relax. This of course is the sign of a great pillow mist and makes this a winner for me!
I received this particular item from my lovely friend who thought it might help me with my sleeplessness (and mean I bend her ear less moaning no doubt) and if you are interested in purchasing this it is usually £4.50 at full price but is currently just £2.25 available from your local Avon representative or at avonshop.co.uk.
When I want to use this sometimes I spray my bed a few minutes before getting in and sometimes I spray around myself even when I am in the bed. This spray is quite soothing and very simple to use. It gets to work very quickly and I do feel myself relax as soon as I use this. The smell of this is one that is calming and soothing and it definitely helps me to relax and de-stress when I've had a period of not sleeping or a long day that has been stressful.
In all I am going to say that this mist is worth 3/5. The smell is really nice and the packaging is good too. The standard full price is expensive, particularly if you use a bottle of this in just one month, like I have. This works quite well for me and while it has not helped me to go sleep every single time that I have used it I have certainly been relaxed by smelling this.
I had not previously experienced problems with sleeping other than the odd night here and there. However, due to a long period of illness last year that resulted in me being diagnosed with exhaustion I was prescribed sleeping pills by my GP. Whilst the pills were initially intended as a short term solution, my body quickly became reliant upon my daily pill popping, which caused me great concern. I have a very supportive and understanding GP who has continued to prescribe me pills whilst I seek alternative therapies as well as researching natural remedies. One of my finds is a product belonging to Avon, which is a brand that I don't particularly rate highly due to so many disappointments in the past. The product is named Sleeptherapy Goodnight Pillow Mist and this review discusses my experience with using it.
The 125ml transparent plastic bottle offers a dreamy and calming appearance with its label of purple and blue tones where we are provided with a night time image of clouds and stars. I was pleased to note that the top of the bottle is well protected with an easy to remove and subsequently replace clip on lid. The bottle should be held at least 15 cm from the area you are intending to spray and with one press the easy to operate pump dispenser delivers a sufficient amount for one application. I instantly fell in love with the stunning aroma that became evident as the clear liquid was released although I find it most odd that Avon has failed to provide any details of the scent. The most evident is lavender with its authentic aroma and is one of my favourite scents to assist me with winding down and chilling out.
The lavender is accompanied by a combination of additional calming and relaxing scents although as hard as I try I am unable to identify them other than for a very delicate hint of what I believe to be camomile. I spray my pillow and the centre of the duvet cover approximately fifteen minutes before I intend to go to bed to ensure the fabric has had sufficient time to dry. Despite the aroma being considerable strong when initially dispensed it soon settles into a more delicate scent once the liquid has dried. I was rather sceptical when I first tired this pillow mist, particularly as my previous experiences with Avon are mainly negative. However, when I place my weary head onto my pillow the calming aroma soon began to wrap around my senses and assist in sending me to a relaxing and tranquil place.
I cannot admit to this product delivering results on each occasion that I've used it, as it depends on the way I am feeling at that particular time. However, if I allow my body to relax and attempt to clear my mind of any stresses of the day, the mist assists me to relax due to its calming and soothing vapours. The longevity of the aroma is pretty good as I am still able to witness its lingering scent in the morning.
Unfortunately, this product is not the answer to my concerns in relation to sleeping pills as whilst it helps me to relax my sleep issues are still present. Consequently, my aim is to totally be free of sleeping pills as I regularly use this mist alongside them as a relaxing aid. However, for those people who experience the odd night with not being able to sleep I believe it offers huge benefits.
A 125ml bottle of Goodnight Pillow Mist will normally cost £4.50, but at the time of writing it can be purchased for £3.15. I would recommend this product and as a result it receives 4 stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
I've been having problems with insomnia for years. I have tried everything from milky drinks and baths to exercise and foods. I was flicking through the Avon brochure and discovered this product. I purchased the 125ml bottle with an open mind.
I got ready for bed and sprayed this just before I got into bed. Two sprays on each pillow of my double bed and one spray towards myself in the air with my eyes shut. I must say that the fragrance is beautiful. It smells mildly of lavender and chamomile with a sweet accent. It is a very calming scent and smells rather feminine. Be careful not to spray to close to the pillow as it can get a bit damp.
As I laid down on my pillow, I had every hope that it would help me to sleep. I used it every night for about 2 weeks. I found it quite relaxing inhaling the scent as I tried to sleep. Some nights I slept okay but other nights I found that it took me ages to get to sleep. I don't know whether you need to use the product over a long period but it didn't really work for me.
I was disappointed with the outcome of the product. However, it makes a lovely room mist for the evenings so my money wasn't entirely wasted!
Avon has a range of products known as the Sleeptherapy range. This includes :
~Goodnight Pillow Mist~
This product is designed to be sprayed onto linen before bedtime or to refresh your home by using it as a room spray. It offers a soothing scent and is specially formulated not to stain any fabric that it comes into contact with.
The packaging for this mist has recently been revamped. The former packaging was a silver cannister but has been replaced by a tall, slim plastic bottle. The bottle is clear and is completed with a calming, blue label featuring the relevant product information. The mist is generated via a spray top complete with a plastic cap.
This mist can be purchased from www.avonshop.co.uk or from your Avon rep. It retails at £4.50 for a 125ml bottle. It is currently on offer at 4 products for £5.00 on a mix and match deal. This is a considerable saving and not one to be refused!
I am quite a bad sleeper and don't like to take sleeping tablets often. Where possible, I like to drift off to sleep naturally and have tried allsorts from having a relaxing bath to a hot drink before bed. I first purchased this pillow mist a few years ago when living at home with my parents. It was recommended to me again recently by my Gran who swears by it. I purchased 3 bottles (2 for me, 1 for my Gran) and another product on the 4 for £5.00 offer. It was the best deal in the brochure and saved me a considering amount considering the regular price!
I am not so keen on the newly updated packaging. I was so used to the sturdy, attractive metal can so wasn't impressed with this squidgy, plastic bottle. With that being said, I can now see how much is remaining and it does the job just as well.The new design is identical to that of the other room and linen sprays that Avon offer. The actual mist is a pale lilac colour and looks like water with a small surface layer of froth!
~Mist and Refresh!~
I use this in a few different ways. I personally prefer an air freshener for around my home as I do find this mist a little "heavy" to be sprayed into the air. Because it drops and settles so quickly, it does make my wooden flooring damp and my carpets damp rather than hanging in the air. I do like to use this on my curtains as it clings to them and gives them a quick refresh. The spray top works efficiently when upright and releases a fine mist onto my curtains. It clings to them and works its way into the fabric to give long lasting scent and freshness.
I have recently used this mist on a small area of carpet after a toddler accident. I scrubbed and scrubbed but couldn't rid the carpet of the smell but spraying some of this worked a treat. Whilst I wouldn't spray on the actual sheets on my sons bed, following a night of puking and other accidents, I found myself spraying some of this on his mattress after cleaning it. This refreshed it and it dried fairly quick on the mattress. I placed fresh sheets on and the scent lingered but the actual product wasn't near my sons skin.
The main use I have for this mist is using on my own bed sheets. I hate a smelly bedroom as I have to spend 1/3 of the day there! We have a plug in but I switch that off an hour before bed as the scent overpowers. When I make up the bed in the morning, I like to give the fitted sheet, the duvet and the pillows a quick mist over. The no stain claim is true and despite being lilac inside the bottle, it sprays out clear on my sheets (I have white sheets usually). ]
I find the mist does leave my sheets with a slight damp feeling which is what I would expect as I am spraying a water like substance onto them. I have the same effects from Febreze and it does take a short while to dry. This isn't a problem during the day but I do top it up an hour or so before bed to get fully benefits from the Sleeptherapy aspect. My sheets are refreshed which is a godsend after sleeping next to a sweaty man! I don't have time to wash our bed sheets every day otherwise I would!
The scent is very appealing. It is relaxing and comforting. Whilst Avon doesn't specify which scents are used within the mist, I would say lavender is definently there but has more of an essential oil scent than an old granny perfume scent! Perhaps some jasmine or something similar but it is a pleasant and soothing aroma whilst being slightly refreshing at the same time. The scent does last throughout the day but like I said, I like a small top up at night before bed.
~Zzzzzz..Oh Sorry I Was Dreaming~
Now if I go to bed wide awake, no amount of spray is going to send me off the count sheep. I often go from being exhausted on the sofa to bed and I'm still restless so I toss and turn the full night. If I am tired, have sprayed this on my sheets at least an hour beforehand, I find I can relax better and therefore drift off without too much hassle.
I don't hop into bed and fall asleep immediately but I feel more content and less agitated, At night I am constantly going over stuff in my head (have I forgot an appointment, what bills do I need to pay etc) and it is very tiring and mentally draining. I think the main focus is on the scent and it does soothe and drestress me at night time. It isn't too strong that it irritates my eyes (as some essential oils do) but is subtle and effective. I haven't experienced any sensitivity issues when using this spray despite the bedsheets being in contact with my skin.
As this is a natural product which relaxes my mind, I feel a bit more confident about using it. If I was relying on sleeping tablets, I would be scared I wouldn't hear my son up during the night. We have been up and down changing beds and cleaning sick for the past few nights and the relaxing properities of the spray have allowed me to still get a sleep but be up and ready to see to my son when I needed too.
The mist is quite concentrated within the bottle and only a small spray is needed to cover a decent area of linen. It is ideal to use on throw overs over the sofa as well. I have used my current bottle for around a week and used it daily. I would estimate I have used around 10ml which isn't bad but if you use it sparingly, it will last a lot longer. I can still detect a subtle lavender scent in the morning so the scent is long lasting as it infuses into the linen.
I plan on stocking up on some more in the current brochure as I am really pleased with how well this guides me into relaxing at night time. Even my fiance has commented on how much more content he feels at night and more refreshed in the morning after a good nights sleep.
I can't fault this Sleeptherapy Pillow Mist and fully recommend it. It doesn't work miracles but does help.
Thanks for reading x
I bought this after buying the Avon sleep balm to complete the set.
I was already really pleased with the sleepbalm but wanted to build up the whole sleep therapy experience. When I was first bought the sleepbalm I wasn;t convinced but found that it really worked. This spray is just as good.
The bottle is a good size and I have probably had mine about a year. I spray it around my bed and over my pillow just before I go to bed.
It has a lavender fragrance and is light and not too strong. The smell lasts quite a long time and when I wake up in the night I can still smell it and this adds the the therapeutic effect.
I am really happy with this product and recommend it. It works well with the sleep balm from the same range and after a hot bath, warm pjs and a milky drink. I use it every time I know I anticipate I am going to have a stressful day and always on a sunday night to prepare me for the week at work. Its a really nice routine to get into!
I have also recommended this to my friends who have been impressed.
Refresh your bedsheets by spraying them with this mist.
