Avon Sleeptherapy Sleep Balm
Advantages: Helps daughter sleep and a little jar lasts for ages
Disadvantages: Dont really like the smell
My eight year old daughter continuously has difficulties in sleeping, we have spent many a night drifting off to sleep only to be woken an hour or so later by the little patter of feet running into our bedroom saying she just cant sleep. When you combine this with the fact our three year old never slept from the day she was born you can imagine what a sleep deprived mother I am - or should I say was.
I purchased a jar of the Avon sleeptherapy restful night sleep balm in the hope it would help, as I had tried several other ways to get her to sleep through the night and Lavender was something people kept recommending to me.
The balm comes in a little clear jar of 10ml and has a white lid with a purple and blue night sky pattern on, you get twelve months from opening to use and does have a sort of calming smell to it although it doesnt actually state anywhere that this smells like lavender, I just assumed because of the colours used and the fact it is to help restful sleep.
We told our eight year old that this is a 'magic balm' and whenever we put a little bit on her temples or her wrist that it will magically make her sleep all night and it seemed this was more a case of mind over matter as since she started using it she has started to sleep through. I personally dont like the smell that much but my daughter does and I dont think it does actually promote sleep as I tried it myself and it did nothing for me but if it helps my daughter then its good enough for this house.
Now my daughter has got back into a sleeping pattern, we dont even need to use this every night but I do still have the jar 'just in case' and combined with her little bedtime routine every night we now at last have a houselhold that does on occasion sleep through the night.
It is currently in the Avon brochure at half price for £1.50 but would normally sell for £3.00, and there are other items in the sleeptherapy range which is a dreamy body wash (I have never tried this) and also a goodnight pillow mist (I do have this), and again these are all currently half price.
Summary: A great little balm but would like it if it smelt better
