I am lucky in not suffering too badly from jetlag, but having flown to London from Singapore for a few days before heading on to New York for a few more, then doing the whole thing in reverse with a day in Singapore to have a complete re-pack before heading off to Thailand (what sort of idiot takes all their holidays in one go?), I do sometimes get that feeling at night, just before my head hits the pillow, that I won’t be able to sleep.
Despite stocking up on melatonin when I was in the States, I generally hate replying on pills to get me to sleep (even if they’re completely natural pills).
Cue This Works deep sleep pillow spray, which is the best beauty secret there is: the beauty of a good night’s sleep. It smells lovely and contains lavender oil, chamomile and vetivert (didn’t know what on earth this was but some light Googling reveals it’s the oil of tranquility, distilled from certain tall, scented tropical grasses)…but more importantly than all that, as the brand name suggests, This. Really. Works. A few sprays and I slept like a babe.
I’ve loved This Works for a while now, in truth ever since I discovered that the founder – Kathy Phillips – used to be the Beauty Ed at UK Vogue but was brave enough and believed in herself enough to jack in her hard-won job to start her own product line.
Could there be a better endorsement? (Aside from mine, natch.)
A great Christmas present for tired Mummys and/or party queens. I like to think that I am both.
This Works have also just bought out an amazing sounding new range called ‘In Transit’. I think I most definitely qualify for this and will be adding it to my Christmas list immediately.
