Health & Beauty: Bathtime Beauty With Holland & Barrett



If you caught my previous 'Make The Most Of Your Beauty Sleep' post, you'll know I've been very lucky to try out some sleep and relaxation products from Holland & Barrett as part of their Sleeping Beauty campaign. Beauty sleep is SO important but perhaps what's even more important is how we prepare for it! So as well as some lovely bedtime products, I was also sent some bathtime treats and I've been loving my little evening routine starting with a bubble bath...

After running my bubble bath, lighting a LOT of candles and brewing myself a hot cup of Heath & Heather Camomile Tea (also from Holland & Barrett), I've been adding a few drops of the Tisserand Sweet Dreams Bath Oil to my bath. I can smell the lavender and essential oils right away and to make the experience even more intense, I chuck in a few handfuls of the Deep Sleep Lavender Bath Salts (as part of the Dead Sea Spa Magik Sleep & Moisture Therapy set). Normally in the bath, I would prop my iPad on the side and get stuck into a Youtube video or 5 but since using the bath salts and oil, I just get into the bath now and close my eyes and let the scents completely relax me without any distractions. It's such a great remedy after a bad or stressful day and I've found it really helps to relax my muscles after the gym too! I normally soak for about 20-30 minutes without distractions and it definitely gets me in the right frame of mind for a deep sleep!


Once out of the bath, probably my favourite step of all is to apply the Tisserand Sweet Dreams Body Oil to my super relaxed skin. It's fragranced with Jasmine, Sandalwood and of course, Lavender so again it's such a soothing product to apply to the skin and the scent calms my mind as effectively as my bubble bath. It's also really good for the skin and contains so many antioxidants and vitamins and is rich in Omega 6 and 9 which means the morning after my skin feels amazing! I normally skip moisturising on an evening altogether because I'm lazy and quite frankly can never be arsed but I find applying the oil so much quicker and easier and it's a step I really notice the difference the next day if I miss it out!

I'm so pleased how much of a difference using all these beauty sleep products has made to my day to day life and as well as having a much better nights sleep every night, it's also a hell of a lot easier to wake up in a morning and jump straight out of bed without needing a litre of coffee!
I'd definitely recommend everything that I've mentioned and I'm so thankful to Holland & Barrett that they let me try all of these out!

How to do you like to unwind on an evening? Are there any products you'd recommend?
