We are all friends here, right? Cool because let me hit you with some real talk: at first I wasn't sold on This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, I thought it was all hype and not worth the investment. I'm pretty sure somewhere in the vaults I have a less-than-glowing review circa 2013, stating just that. If only I could take myself a side back then, have a stern chat and stick with the spray a little longer, I'm more than sure I would have saved myself a restless night or two.
You see This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray isn't the most sweetly scented of products, it is far from unsavoury, it just takes a little getting used to that's all and this may be where it looses the odd user.The Deep Sleep Pillow relies on the power of aromatherapy - using natural oils to gently soothe, relax and comfort even the most tightly wound of people (yep that's me). The two central notes of This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray are Lavender and Vetivert, which combine with wild chamomile to create a sleepy yet herbal scent; in my opinion it is a little stronger than other sleep sprays, perhaps that is why it is so potent? If I had to compare the fragrance of This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray to one thing, it would be a more refined version of Sudocrem. Bizarre on paper yet oddly relaxing and dare I say sleepy in person.
It could be argued that perhaps This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is nothing more than a placebo, the power of suggestion is a wonderful thing but I like to think this deeply-scented sleep aide is more than that. You see I've tried several, if not tens of dream inducing products and very few work. A light mist of This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray over my duvet and pillows (if in a hotel I do mist a few sprays into the centre of the room) and within minutes I am deeply relaxed and feeling rather sleepy. If that is not enough I often find that when I use the This Works spray my quality of sleep is improved (I have a deeper slumber and don't awaken several times during the night for no good reason), which I am putting down to being in a blissful, serene mood before falling asleep.
Will This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray cure insomnia? Probably not but it will help those who are a little restless drift off to sleep that little easier. I can't recommend it enough and will forever have a bottle on my bedside table - how times (and my sleep patterns) have changed.
