    Promising Review: "I kid you not, this lotion has changed the quality of my sleep. It's this heavenly mix of oatmeal, lavender oil, organic cocoa butter and a bunch of other natural goodness — plus, it smells divine. My colleague swore up and down I would never sleep better than getting out of the shower, lathering this on, then jumping under my covers — and he was not wrong."

    By the time you wake up, your skin will be calmer, brighter and have a gorgeous glow that will have your #nomakeup selfies looking flawless AF.

    Promising Review: "The year is 2020 — it's time you started embracing the power of retnoid. The Ordinary's version is bloody fantastic and oh-so-affordable. I apply this bad boy after cleansing and toning my skin at night. I'm a VERY OILY GAL, so I don't top it with anything else, because the squalane is super hydrating. But you can also top with moisturiser if your skin is dry AF."

    7. This weighted cotton blanket because you sure don't need a cuddle buddy to lessen your anxiety and get a good night’s rest.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / Hameda Nafiz

    If you're the kind of person who tosses and turns a lot before going to bed, this weighted blanket will change your life. It feels like being tucked in or cuddling someone — except better, because you don't need to deal with another person.

    Weight is evenly distributed throughout the stitching of the blanket, making it feel as though you’re being hugged as you sleep. This blanket uses sand pellets for the weight distribution rather than fibre, so that you can use it all year round without feeling too hot.

    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it, too." —Julia Willing

    10. This LIFX Smart LED bulb, so you can set up customised bedtime mood lighting to get you ready for bed faster.

    @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com, Amazon, @lunarsequence / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "LIFX lighting is the best purchase I've ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it's also really good for things such as sleep hygiene. At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it's time to wind down and it's much easier to fall asleep. It's perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There's a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you're playing! It's so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE."
