I often struggle falling asleep (and often relaxing in general) so have tried lots of products over the years and here is just a small selection of the things you may like and may find at least somewhat helpful.
Origins Peace of Mind On-the-spot Relief ( review) and Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm (review)
are very useful and handbag friendly products that can be handy not only when you are going to bed but also in a stressful situation to help you calm down.
Aromatherapy Associates Relax Candle (review) and Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil (review) are my personal favourites. I am never without the oil, I use it in the bath and shower, as the name suggests and also use several drops on my pillow before going to bed (sometimes) and that really helps. As for the candle,
I suffer from horrible insomnia from time to time. There were times when I could lay in my bed trying to fall asleep, and no matter how tired I was, I just couldn’t until like 5 am or until the time I had to get up.
Thank God, everything is so much better now! Although when we get nervous, anxious and can’t fall asleep it’s clearly the problem in our head, there are some beauty products that can actually help in some way. Yes, these products can help but not solve the problem. But since we are talking about beauty here, solving the problem would be a whole different conversation.
So, as you have guessed by now, I want to talk about the “de-stress” beauty products.
Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil, £37. This is a multi award winning product and I would really love to try it.
Espa Soothing Body Oil, £30. I read that this was recommended by Pat McGrath.
Elemis Quiet Mind Room Mist, £15. I wonder how strong the scent is. More about this product here.
Origins Peace of Mind On-the-spot relief, £ 11. I actually have and love this product. Review here.
So… Do you believe in the de-stress beauty products? How do they work for you? What products would you recommend?
I was thinking what present to get for my skin for winter. So this is what sounds great to me! Unfortunately I have only one product by Origins (read review here) so far. But I am sure that it’s not the last one.
Grapefruit Greats, £35.00
Pampering Grapefruit trio infused with citrus – ensure skin feels and smells fantastic! (A value of £39.00)
Will brighten up the cold and blistering winter season with sparkling citrus notes of grapefruit. Included in the set are: Gloomaway™ Grapefruit body souffle, Gloomaway™ Grapefruit body buffing cleanser, and Gloomaway™ Grapefruit bath bar.
- Gloomaway™ Grapefruit body souffle net wt. 7.0 oz./200 ml
- Gloomaway™ Grapefruit body buffing cleanser 3.4 fl. oz./100 ml
- Gloomaway™ Grapefruit bath bar net wt. 5 oz./150 g
Oh now I want this set very much because it sounds too perfect! And what do you think? Would you get this set?What do you like from Origins?
So many of you asked me to do month favourites posts so I started doing them last mont with March Favourites. Today I will tell you about my April Favourites.
1. Inglot Eye Shadows
2. MAC lipstick in Blankety
It reminds me of YSL Rouge Volupte #2 and I am talking about the shade, not quality. You can read my review and see the lip swatches here.
3. Too Faced Pink Leopard Highlighting Bronzer and Sun Bunny Bronzer
Although I have them in the palette which was a LE for holiday I can’t say that I use those shadows a lot but I really love the bronzers and you can read my review and see the swatches here.
4. Urban Decay 24/7 Liners in Zero (black) and Bourbon (brown with golden glitter).
I love mini eye liners and I try to buy mini versions when they are available because even mini versions last forever and I can get more shades with the same sum of money. I have several shades of 24/7 liners both mini version and original size and this month I was using these 2 shades a lot. The liners are really great: soft, pigmented and they last for a long time. Plus you can get a lot of differnet colours. I will write a detailed review in the future.
5. Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners in Busy Signal
Peace of Mind On-the-spot relief
When the world closes in on you and your head feels a size too small, apply just two dabs of Origins mind-clearing formula on the back of your neck, temples and earlobes. You’ll feel a tingling sensation as pressure, tension and tightness begin to feel as if they melt away.
How to use: Place two small dabs on fingertips. Take a deep breath to experience Peace of Mind’s stress relieving aromas. Massage into the back of neck, earlobes, and temples (closer to the hairline than to eyes).
