‘A magnesium-rich formula designed to relax body and mind, for a restful night’s sleep.’
When I was sent two bottles of BetterYou’s new Magnesium Sleep Lotion to try, I have to admit that I was really excited. It seems that the older I get, the more I struggle to sleep – and it’s been a real problem in recent weeks. I’ve been struggling to fall asleep and during the night I find myself waking up every few hours. So when these arrived in the post I did wonder in hope if they could be my miracle cure…
The mineral lotion is rich in magnesium chloride, lavender and camomile, designed to relax tired muscles, slow sensory activity and quieten the mind to promote a restful night’s sleep.
On first inspection, I like the fact that the formula is free from parabens, synthetic fragrances and colour, contains 100 percent natural ingredients, is gentle enough to be used during pregnancy and that BetterYou is against animal testing. Each 5ml dose provides an impressive 150mg of magnesium, which is 40 percent of the recommended daily allowance.
Magnesium is a natural sleep aid and has a calming effect on the body, relaxing muscles and easing tension.
The pump bottle makes application easy, simply twist the top to unlock and push the pump down to release the lotion. The lotion is a smooth consistency, which is not too thick or too runny. It’s quickly absorbed into the skin and is highly moisturising, leaving my skin feeling soft and nourished. I’m a big fan of lavender so I absolutely adore the scent and it’s well known for promoting relaxation and sleep.
For optimal results, BetterYou recommend applying after showering or bathing, up to 30-minutes before sleep. I love that it’s ideal as part of a bedtime routine and look forward to slipping into the bath before lathering this all over and getting in to bed.
The lotion is suitable for use all over the body and BetterYou suggest focusing on areas such as the neck, shoulders and legs.
BetterYou’s new Magnesium Sleep Lotion is available now, priced at £9.95 for a 180ml bottle.
