Hey guys! Sorry that this is my first blog post in AAAGEEESS!

I was super busy in October working on Inktober pieces (you can see my inktober vlog where I also talk about this review here) and I’ve pretty much been trying to get my life in order recently – I’ve had a couple of life changes that I’ve had to work around and blogging has fallen by the wayside a little bit!

However, I will be endeavouring to post here more regularly, starting with this review of LUSH’s ‘Sleepy’ body lotion!

Now I know I’m late to the party on this one, it went viral a while ago because everyone was saying how amazing it is and how it really does actually work, so I wanted to see for myself what it was like!

It’s a gorgeous-smelling purple lotion which is made using three different types of lavender and people have claimed that it helps you sleep. At the time that I bought it, I was having a terrible time sleeping – not being able to fall asleep, waking up multiple times, and waking up feeling like I hadn’t got any rest at all! When I went into LUSH, one of the employees told me that it helps her with her insomnia and having read other people’s reviews praising its’ soporific qualities I was really keen to give it a go!

It cost me £13.95 because I got the bigger size and I definitely don’t regret spending the extra money on it! I put a small amount on my arms, chest and neck before I get into bed and honestly, it really does work for me! I fall asleep quicker and feel like I sleep better since using it. The smell might not be to everyone’s taste because it’s a very strong scent, but it’s great for me because I adore the smell of lavender 🙂 it also moisturises really well and leaves your skin feeling super smooth.

All in all, I would definitely recommend giving this a go if you have trouble sleeping, or if you’re looking for a moisturising night cream and you like the smell of lavender! LUSH products are great if you are looking to be more animal-friendly because of their no animal testing policy and their clearly labelled vegan products. Sleepy lotion is vegan, which is perfect for me as if you’ve read my blog you will know that I’m vegan and am trying to use as many cruelty-free and vegan products as possible 🙂

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed the review and let me know if you have used this product or are planning to!
