    This Lavender-Scented Lotion Is The Best Part Of My Nighttime Routine

    "OMG it's like lavender and sugar cookie and a hug all rolled into one."

    Here's the thing: I love sleeping, but I'm not a fan of going to sleep.

    Over the past few months, I've developed an elaborate nighttime relaxation system to ease myself into the right state of mind, but nothing's made me enjoy it quite as much as this Lush Sleepy lotion.

    And even though I'm convinced nothing will truly make me fall right to sleep like a robot that's just been powered off, this stuff comes pretty darn close.

    A big reason it's been working for me is that the actual lotion is thick and creamy, and just feels so luxurious to lather myself in every night.

    Also, the smell is utterly delightful and heavy on the lavender, a scent that, time and time again, is cited as a sleep aid.

    And I'm not alone! The lotion is basically a cult product — it has more than 300 reviews on the Lush website, and 99% of people who reviewed it would recommend it to a friend.

    I'm not entirely sure that the sleepiness the lavender scent causes isn't just a placebo effect, but TBH I'm fine with that.

    Nighttime anxiety is a real thing, and even though it can take a long time to break the negative thought patterns associated with it, incorporating something positive has gone a long way for me.

    Get it from Lush for $9.95.
