Product Rave | thisworks deep sleep

This is a classic example of why good customer service is so important. Had it not been for Francoise's recommendation I wouldn't have given this range a second glance. My initial purchases weren't even for myself.

After The Wife gave both the sleep plus pillow spray and the deep sleep stress less such a glowing review, I had to try them for myself. Yuh know when a line is good if their products make back-to-back favourites posts.

this works calm kiss Christmas duo - www.modenmakeup.com

The calm kiss duo in the photo above was a Christmas release. When I went to get the full size I discovered that you get the same amount (10 ml) of product as offered in this set. On the thisworks website however, this item is called deep sleep breathe in and it only contains 8 ml:

"Wind down naturally with the soothing scent of Lavender, Camomile and Vetivert.

MODERN: deep sleep breath in is a compact, roll-on travel companion or bedside aid designed to alleviate disrupted sleep patterns. The aromatic blend of therapeutic oils, diffuse into the air from the warmth of your pulse points promoting a sense of serenity and of course, a good night’s beauty sleep.

NATURAL: Harnessing the potent aromatherapy power of our award-winning deep sleep blend, this mini soother fuses the relaxing power of Lavender oil with Vetivert, known as the “oil of tranquillity” thanks to its ability to relieve tension from a stressed-out mind. Lastly Patchouli, which stimulates the release of pleasure hormones in the mind, so feelings of anxiety simply melt away.

BEAUTY: A deeply restorative product that reinstates your piece of mind as well as your morning get up and glow. The ultimate benefit to a better night sleep? Wake up the next day feeling and looking brighter and fresher.

Directions: To ease and soothe the mind towards a restful sleep, gently apply the roll-on to pulse points such as temples, wrists and forehead. You can also put a few drops in a tissue or the palm of your hands and inhale deeply a few times. Partner with deep sleep pillow spray at bedtime to maximise results.

I previously mentioned both of those products so I had no intention of writing this post...but then I tried the shower gel.

What a trifecta! Personally I prefer to roll the deep sleep stress less/breathe in on my pillowcase and inhale until I drift off. I believe that adding these products to your night time routine can assist in overcoming insomnia. I don't have trouble falling asleep; staying there is another matter. Using these products has "conditioned" my brain to recognise that when this scent is present, it's time for bed.

I purchased these from Pure Source Barbados: sleep plus pillow spray - $98BDS DP / $79 DF, deep sleep shower gel - $61BDS DP / $49.50 DF and deep sleep stress less/breathe in - $49BDS DP / $39.50 DF.

International readers, thisworks products are also available on Amazon.*

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
