Lush Sleepy – Does it work?

We’ve all seen it, all over the newspapers and in the mum forums, Lush have this wonderful new body lotion which has a mix of lavender and oatmeal. its advertised as a ‘relaxing and dreamy’ lotion you put on after a bath. (you can find it here)

But is it worth its weight in gold? did it actually work?

Lavender has been used in many baby products in the past, it as antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties and is also used to help calm anxiety suffers, I myself use a lavender oil roll on that I apply to my chest before I go to bed.

I ran a few tests, I tried her with a bath and the body lotion, just the body lotion itself with no bath and obviously a control of no bath, no body lotion and this is what I found

The nights that I bathed and used the body lotion she was asleep before 7 oclock, our bed time is around half 6 in the evening, I try and keep her up later but shes set in her ways haha, When I try just the body lotion, she sleeps a little later but you can kind of tell that shes relaxing and of course when I do neither she us up yelling at us until 7:30..

BUT… I am not sure if its the lotion doing it or just the fact i’m taking the time to sit down and rub her belly and her feet, making her relax, shes always sleepy after a bath anyway So I know the main factor in that is just her having a nice bath..

I think its going to be a case of if it works for you, then it works, and I am still not sure if its worked for R, I know for me when I use it I am out for the count haha, but we are going to take any sleep she gets while using the body lotion as a good night, I will say however that the nights we use ‘Sleepy’ on R, she does go all the way through.

whether its the body lotion or her just growing up.. I don’t know.

Have you ever tried Sleepy? Would you try it knowing all the other stories from it.

Until next time

    I haven’t tried Sleepy and I don’t know if I would. I use Johnson’s Bed Time Lotion for my daughter and she sleeps lovely.

    I have a lavender roll too, although I don’t use it much at all. It’s certainly difficult to tell what works and what doesn’t!

    I haven’t tried this myself, or heard of it until this post actually! Haven’t been into Lush for ages. Feel like I should try this though as I struggle to sleep sometimes, always worth a try 🙂

    I’m not sure any of these products actually work but I bet the routine and like you say, the massage etc works a treat. So if it smells nice and makes their skin soft? Then why not! 🙂
