If you ask me, every day should be Mother’s Day, but this year the official day to treat all moms and mother figures is March 6th, which just happens to be this Sunday (and also my dad’s birthday too so there goes my bank balance.)
Now, it is a well known fact that the majority of people buying Mother’s Day presents will be men, purchasing them on behalf of their little darlings, and that means that most presents will be purchased, in a rush and panic, this weekend. Flowers and chocolates will be picked up with a vengeance, but what most mother’s would really like is some ‘me-time; that comprises peace, quiet, pampering and relaxation. This Works has just the products that will allow moms just that.
Deep Sleep Bath Soak
This is my current favourite bath product. An old fashioned concoction of Lavender, Vetivert and Wild Camomile essential oils, these theraputic bath salts help to relax the mind and body, ease aches and pains, and leave your body feeling soft and fresh. These are traditional bath salts, white in colour, they look so natural compared to other coloured varieties that just look artificial. The scent is intoxicating, I used this in my downstairs bathroom and the scent actually traveled by steam to my living room, with my husband commenting on the beautiful scent.
The 200g gram pot is a great size and would easily last 6 months, with just a spoonful needed per bath. And the packaging is modern and fresh, making it a welcome addition to any bathroom shelf. You can pick this product up from Boots and John Lewis, as well as the thisworks website. The 200g pot costs £22.
Deep Sleep Dream Cream
This is a product I have been using for just over a week, and I can already see the effects. I struggle to sleep at night, never really switching off, even when I am desperately tired. The deep sleep dream cream is all about relaxation, and is great used immediately following the bath salts. Using the same essential oils as the bath soak, but with Crambe and Gold of Pleasure Oils added to the mix, this is a cream designed to induce sleep.
I like the fact that this is a cream that is easily absorbed and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky, therefore perfect to use before bed. This can literally be used on any part of the body (with the exception of the face), but is especially good on tired hands and feet. It is lightly scented, with the Lavender coming through strongest.
As well as inducing sleep, this cream is also a fabulous body hydrator that is great for parched winter skin, offering nourishment and repair when needed.
The Deep Sleep Dream Cream costs £18 for a 75ml tube and is available at the thisworks website here.
