Switching off in the evening


The last week has been a busy one for me, dashing from one place to another – balancing work, juggling the kids, voice-overs and making videos for my parenting YouTube Channel Hey Mummy. So it’s been really nice to get to try out the This Works range as there are lots of products that help you de-stress and wind down before bed.

That’s something I really need to start doing more of. I have a bad habit, like so many of us, of using my phone until my eyes close. Just checking one more tweet or facebook post? Did I email the nursery? Book the childminder? Ooh whats that lovely picture on Instagram?!


They say the blue light of phones effects the way we sleep so I am trying to break the habit. I have also started spraying my pillow with the It Works Sleep Spray. Oh lordy does it smell wonderful, like a spa. It also knocks me for six!Deep_Sleep_Pillow_Spray_069

I combine it with the Hair Elixir treatment for my hair too so that I really get a full hit of all the amazing aromas including lavender, vetivert, wild camomile, jojoba and argan oil. I would be very weary of using anything strong to help me get to sleep because I like to keep an ear out for my kids in the night, so something natural and soothing is just what I need to help me relax.IMG_9098

Early starts for work sometimes mean that my eyes need a little extra love too so the eye creams have come in to their own for me. Light Time Skin Plumper is a winner – not only does the cream help brighten my eyes but the cooling applicator feels like a treat each time I use it. I also really like the No Wrinkles Extreme Moisturiser too.TW_social_240316_052

I could go on and on about each product that I have been using but I shall save it for my hour with This Works on Tuesday 12th at 9pm. I hope you will join me as I think you’ll love this range if you haven’t tried it yet.IMG_9099_1

So what have you all been up to and what do you do to help you relax in the evening?

      Hi Rebecca, glad you enjoyed the show. Yes the top I was wearing is from QVC, I love it too. It’s H by Halston and the item number is 159532. Get in there quick as it’s selling out in that colour, but it is on waitlist for some of the sizes. x

    Hi Katy,
    Yes I did watch the programme on last night. I too love the pillow spray, and I find it really helps me sleep better. I tend to wake up in the night thanks to ladies hot moments, and I am another one who checks the emails late at night.

    You certainly keep busy and with a young family as well, always something going on.

    I ordered the Hair Elixir treatment last night, and got the large pillow spray when it was on a few weeks ago, so I am okay for now.

    I work with my husband as we have an Engineering business and I do all the accounts , ordering etc, and at the end of each day I find a cuddle with the dogs and cat is relaxing and just what I need.

    Take Care.

    Love Jean XX

      I’m so glad it works for you, I love the sleep spray. I’m sure you are kept very busy too with all the accounts and ordering. It’s so nice to have something to help you relax, having the dogs and cat for a cuddle sounds lovely. One day I hope we will be able to have a pet too. My daughter would LOVE a cat! x
