This Works Sleep Plus (new products)


We’ve extolled the virtues of This Works Deep Sleep products before: clinically proven to deliver a better night’s sleep. And they do. Honestly, they do (and Jo, for one, notices a quite radical difference to sleep quality when she nods off without anointing herself and her pillow with Deep Sleep); But with the launch of this new trio, there’s barely an inch of us that remains unslathered with the fusion of chamomile, lavender and vetiveroils which are the essential oil weapons in Deep Sleep’s war on insomnia.

Here are the three new additions to the line-up.

This Works Sleep Plus Trouble Shooter/£35 for 120ml. This is a spritz-on mist: quite light in texture but infused with soothing allantoin, hyaluronic acid, olive extract, comfrey root and vitamin E. It’s actually quite hard to believe that something this ‘thin’ can deliver enough moisture – but it really does, and is specifically designed for knees, elbows, patches of dryness, crêpiness or photo damage.

This Works Sleep Plus Dream Body/£25 for 75ml. If you like something richer and more nourishing, this is your baby: an oil-rich cream with the same Deep Sleep scent, packed with retinol, baobab and crambe oil among other skin-friendly ingredients. We’ve been using it very lavishly and have a hunch This Works are going to have to release a larger size of this very soon.

This Works Sleep Plus Hair Elixir/£25 for 80ml. You know how hair is such a brilliant ‘carrier’ of fragrance...? Well, if further proof was needed, this is it. We were a little nervous about using this – would it weigh hair down and require washing in the morning? – but it’s also lightweight and seems simply to leave it silkier, not greasy. And there is something about having that vetiver/chamomile/lavender scent so close to your nose that seems to make this very effective indeed as a sleep-beckoner.

We’re told the products are ‘motion activated’ (a first, for us) – which is also somewhat ironic because with Deep Sleep, there’s way less tossing and turning...!

We're gonna need a bigger bedside table...
