In this returning segment I will write little reviews of some of the beauty products I pick up here and there. I follow a lot of rad inspirational people on instagram, and I often end up buying alot of recommended products.. well, because I can’t help myself! ❤️
Some time ago I stumbled across a brand called ‘This Works’ on Beautybay.com and was amused by the quite cocky name. I thought it was probably a good idea to find out if This Works, really works..
I needed a new moisturizer with SPF, so I picked up a In Transit Skin Defence SPF 30, and I was also temped to try a little sample pack of hand creams, since my hairdresser hands are always dry as f…
Another thing that caught my attention was their line of ‘sleep’ products, they have a full line of skincare, bath products and pillow sprays that you can use before bedtime to calm down and rest easy. So I snagged a little sample of their Deep Sleep Pillow spray.
Let’s start with the moisturizer:
I think this is one of the best moisturizers with SPF I have ever tired.. and believe me I tried a few! It goes on smooth and absorbs easily, and dosen’t leave the skin feeling sticky like many creams with SPF do. It is important to protect your skin daily, and I also use acid peels, so for me it’s absolutely nessesary. The container is also quite brilliant, because it can fit in your purse so you can re-apply during the day if you spend a day enjoying the sun.
It’s a 🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾 from here! (5/5)
On the the Perfect Hands Intense Moisture:
I’ve been useing this in the evenings before bedtime, and has a nice smell and also absorbs quite quickly for a cream this rich. It does leave the skin with that cream feeling that I gernally don’t like for a while, but it’s not so bad that you feel you’re getting everything you touch sticky with cream. I the mornings my hands feel soft and moisturized. It does give a great feeling of relief when applied like a really good handcream should!
It’s 🍾🍾🍾 from here, but that is mostly because I generally don’t like hand creams, but I know I need them! 🙈 (3/5)
Last on trial is Deep Sleep Pillow Spray:
Well, first of all, this is not the little sample I started out with! I had to buy a full size one after using up the sample, so I’m guessing this means you can almost predict that I like it!
I’ve always been intrigued by aromatherapy, and how essential oils and scents can have an effect on you. This one is with lavender, vetivert and wild camomile. You spray it on your pillow case or sheets before bedtime and then enjoy the fresh and relaxing scent. They have 2 variations: The Sleep plus, meant for people who wake up in the middel of the night and have a hard time falling asleep again. The other one is the Deep Sleep which I have tested, that is for people (like me!) who get restless and have trouble falling asleep when you hit the pillow.
I really like the ritual of giving my pillow a little spray of freshness before I go to bed, the smell is fresh but also relaxing and I feel like my airways are open when i breathe in. I don’t know if it’s the ritual of actually doing it, and laying down, try to relax and breathing in deep breaths that makes me fall asleep faster of if it’s the essential oils working. Main thing is that I really like it, and I do fall asleep quicker.
It’s a 🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾 from here, because it’s very important to get your beauty sleep! (5/5)
