Lush Cosmetics Sleepy Lotion

Sleepy Hand and Body lotion from LUSH Cosmetics was around for the holidays last year and is now part of their permanent collection. After reading about it, picking up a small size and immediately needing the bigger tub, it's safe to say I am loving this stuff! Read on for more.

What made me really want this new lotion to begin with after I have a shelve full of body lotions I am working my way through, is reading online time and time again that though it was not designed for, nor can claim this, it helps people who don't sleep well and have insomnia. I never feel rested after going to bed no matter how many hours I sleep, and often I am restless and wake up constantly through the night. I'm more than willing to try anything safe and natural that may help me get some better ZzZzZzZzZs. For real, I'm constantly tired.

Here is some info about Sleepy from
"Soothe your senses. Slather on this gorgeous pale purple lotion, breathe in its sweet, comforting lavender and tonka perfume and you'll instantly feel at ease. Glycerin, cocoa butter and almond oil work together to moisturize skin and lock in hydration to keep skin soft, supple and comfortable all day or all night long. Say hello to your new nightly ritual! Zzz. This lotion has been formulated without any synthetic preservatives. An infusion of oatmeal will soothe and cool irritated or sensitive skin."

Performance wise, this is such a lovely lotion. It absorbs instantly and leaves my skin feeling so so so soft. Since I use it at night, I usually just rub it into my hands, cuticles and arms and use another lotion on the rest of my body since I want to stretch out my jars of Sleepy as much as possible.

The color is a pretty light lavender but it doesn't stain your skin or transfer.
Scent wise. Wow. Just, wow. I've been a fan of Lush stuff for quite some time now, even working at a store near me part time back in 2011 before it closed (it was one of the ones inside Macy's) So my nose has sniffed many Lush products in the past. I am tying this scent with my beloved Snow Fairy as my favorite Lush scent EVER. EVER. It's so good. A combo of lavender and tonka has is smelling so warm, calming, inviting and relaxing. It's a lovely soft, floral, gourmand fragrance. Not too strong, not too soft, just right. It's seriously delicious, and it lingers which makes me so happy.

I do notice since applying this every night, I am dozing off slightly faster, which is great. Often my mind races so bad when I lay down to sleep I can easily be laying there for an hour, or more. I am still waking up during the night at times, but drifting off quicker is a good thing for me.
Yes I still feel tired, but this is a body lotion, not a miracle worker. I love using Sleepy to calm me down at the end of the day to help drift off and also leave my skin so smooth! I can't sing it enough praises. I think it would be super cool if Lush took this scent and made a pillow mist to go along with it.
