Champneys Perfect Sleep Relaxing Pillow Mist
Advantages: Whats a bigger advantage than a good nights sleep?!
Disadvantages: Hard to read the lettering on the bottle.
I've wrote quite a few reviews over my time on this site all based around my search for the perfect night's sleep. I don't have trouble sleeping all the time but I go through phases where I have periods of being simply unable to fall asleep. Once I've nodded off I can sleep for hours but it's the actual falling asleep I sometimes have issues with so I always like to have products on hand to use when these troubles crop up. I've tried many things over the years and none of them have seemed to work too well - or they work for a while and then my body becomes used to them and they stop so I'm always searching for new products to use. I actually came across this 'Champneys Relaxing Pillow Mist' by chance - my mom got a large set for Christmas and she didn't think much of this particular product so I got the opportunity to try it out - and I actually love it! One woman's rubbish is another's ... good night's sleep!!
Price: Around £7.50 - 50ml bottles
Stockists: Boots & their website & this is also available straight from Champneys websites.
Other Info: This is a professional spa formula and I guess a product they actually use in a Champneys spa - made me feel a bit fancy using it if I'm totally honest. This product is also dermatologically tested so it should be fine to use even if you have sometimes sensitive skin - Champneys are the self appointed professionals after all!
The packaging for this spray is very simple yet classy - which fits in with the brand name very well in my opinion. It comes in a clear, glass 50ml bottle with purple and gold lettering all over it - I do have one query related to that but more on that later. Printed all over the front and back of the bottle is all the necessary information on the product - claims, directions for use, background information on the brand, shelf life (24M) but strangely enough there are no ingredients. I assumed with such a high class brand there would be a list of ingredients for allergy sufferers - it doesn't bother me so much but if you have any allergies to items sometimes used in this kind of product I recommend checking their website out. My one issue with the packaging is the lettering is actually quite hard to read because it's so light against the transparent bottle - once again I can mostly read this so it's not a massive issue but for people with sight problems it will be a problem. At the top of the bottle is a chunky gold pull-off lid which is very easy to remove and put back on, underneath is the usual push down nozzle - nothing out of the ordinary there. As I said simple, mostly effective & very classy packaging - Id definitely look twice at this in a store.
Using this spray is very simple - although with it being such a high end brand Champneys do offer some professional advice! Apparently to make this work at maximum effectiveness its best to have a nice long bath before spritzing this all over your pillow and bed linen and getting into bed for a *hopefully* nice long sleep! I have to admit I don't think it effects the results too much whether you have a bath beforehand or not but I can see how that would make you more relaxed and maybe really benefit some people - I'm not a 'bath person' though so I don't tend to use it that way very often. A few quick sprays of this on my pillow and I'm good to go ... to sleep! The scent of this spray is very much what you'd expect from a sleep aid as it is very standard - very nice but exactly what I was expecting. You might guess this smells very strongly of lavender - which as that's known as a natural sleep aid is very fitting for a product of this type. The smell is very pleasant - not amazing but I don't think it needs to be really - just the right intensity as it's easy to smell but not so strong the scent would actually keep you awake instead. It's actually very pleasant - I look forward to bedtime for smelling this to be honest.
I'm very happy to report this genuinely works wonders for me. I now use this every single night - not just when I'm having a problem falling asleep as it's become part of my night time routine, I even took it on holiday with me!! The scent instantly relaxes me and I think my brain has started to associate the scent of this with a good night's rest because whenever I use it I fall asleep so much quicker and even wake up in the morning feeling more rested and relaxed than I normally would. I would definitely say this is the best natural sleeping aid I've ever used and I'm very happy I got to try it out for free before I go and purchase myself another bottle. This spray really works for me personally and there's nothing better than a really good night's sleep in my opinion so for that reason alone I fully recommend this. If you have troubled sleep or just if you fancy a really relaxing night sleep every now and again this is the perfect product for you. I highly recommend this - I guess the professionals really do know best!!
Thanks For Reading.
