The £8 Body Lotion Insomniacs Are Swearing By

If you’ve tried everything in the way of sleep aids, there might just be one more product left to try. Sleepy by Lush is a cocoa butter, oatmeal body lotion, infused with lavender oil, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oil. Lush say you will “sleep well” after using it and it’s a claim that’s backed up by several Reddit users:

“As someone with an incurable and not so common chronic illnesses which result in chronic pain and insomnia because of the pain, sleepy lotion is the one product that can actually help me through the worst of my nights.”hmarie92

“Sleepy absolutely helps with my insomnia, I use Mr Sandman on my sheets nightly and smother myself in Sleepy”W1tch_cr4t

The Lush website is also filled with raving Sleepy reviews:

“I used to take anxiety medication for 11 years and had to stop recently which was pretty terrible. But I found that using and smelling Sleepy can help my anxiety not be as bad. It’s such a relaxing scent and I love using it!”jesssicaaalynne

“Smells amazing!! It actually works! I was skeptical at first but it actually works!”celestenoelle

“One sleepless night, when I was at the end of my tether, I found myself slathering this all over my upper body and dabbing a small amount onto my temples – hopeful that it just might do the trick. It did.. The scent surprised me, yes there was definitely a big lavender hit, but (to me) this smells sweeter, yet bitter – like burnt sugar (in the best way possible). I soon found myself having a wonderfully restful nights sleep. I am now a lavender convert! Would highly recommend this product.”Lotilumps

In fact Sleepy has proven so popular that Lush made it a permanent item in their line after originally only releasing it as limited edition.

Sleepy is available in two sizes (95g, £7.95 and 215g, £13.95) and is available from Lush online and in store.
