“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep,” — William Shakespeare, The Tempest.
Are your days as dreamy as a Shakespeare sonnet? If not, you probably aren’t getting enough sleep. According to NHS studies, over a third of the UK population suffer from poor sleep quality on a regular basis.
After a successful and fulfilling career, ex-Media Director and Innovation Consultant at Saatchi & Saatchi, Jo Foster came up with a simple resolution. She decided to pay the same amount of attention to her well-being during the night as she did during the day, and so Kiss the Moon was born.
I got my hands on Kiss the Moon’s Glow After Dark Bath Oil to see if it lulled me into a deep and dreamy sleep. Here’s what I thought…
This oil is a gorgeous blend of Orange, Geranium and Myrrh, and the Litsea oil adds a lemongrassy smell. It only took a pipette or two in the bath to make my whole bathroom smell like an exotic spa.
As well as relaxing through aromatherapy, the whole Kiss the Moon range is also supposed to nourish your skin while you sleep. This oil is a blend of vitamin A, B & E rich coconut nut, jojoba and white tea seed oils.
Soaps can be so drying that I was glad to find a bath product that moisturised the skin, although I did use a body cream after the bath as usual.
Kiss the Moon is available from www.kissthemoon.com and is priced at £38/100ml, which is not cheap, but they also have a range of face products for night time from £9.50, which I haven’t tried…yet!
It’s comforting to know that these oils are 100% natural, especially when you’re bathing in them. Each oil and flower essence has been chosen for its power to relax, nourish and restore.
The R Factor
R stands for recommend, and I loved these products from the gorgeous all black packaging to the quality ingredients, this oil is perfect for a relaxing night in after a busy week.
The only downside to these products is the price, if you’re feeling creative you could buy some of the essential oils and whip up your own version with your favourite scents.
