Neil's Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate - A Real Miracle

Hey Beauties!
Today's post is going to be about The Neal's Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate. Neal's Yard is a skincare brand that specialises in cruelty free, ethical and safe skincare. Neal's Yard really are quite firm when it comes to their safe approach to skincare, which you can see for yourself here - I think its great when skincare brands really put effort into ensuring that their products are the very best they can be. Its very easy and tempting for brands to load their products with cheap "safe" Chemicals, but when a brand really goes that extra mile to ensure that the end product is really safe it gives me faith to use and trust the brand. Theres even a little story behind the Neal's Yard Blue Bottles, as they are made in the UK and fired from scottish sand and soda ash from Cheshire in line with the brands CarbonNeutral status. I honestly couldn't believe how interesting the Neal's Yard website was when I first started researching, and I can tell you its well worth the read.

My sister very kindly gave me the Neal's Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate as a gift which retails for £31.50 and I have been really loving trying out a new brand with such good values. I'm a complete skincare geek and recently I have been really getting into trying new products, plus I work for one of the best skincare brands in the world Elemis who are another fantastic and ethical skincare brand, and I'm sure you have seen me rave about them before. However, I was so intrigued by the Beauty Sleep Concentrate, as it sounded right up my street.. I mean who doesn't want beauty sleep in a bottle haha ? - I hope you enjoy my review sweeties! and I'm always free for skincare advice, so you can either tweet me, or leave me a message in the comments section below.

The Review (Sit back and relax! its a long one haha)
I have been testing this out for just over a week now and I'm actually beyond amazed with this product.  It's a lovely thick (ish) serum that has a really unusal scent not like your typical lavander/camomile scent used for bed time serums/remedies. It actually smells quite spicey, but this might be down to the ylang ylang and patchouli within the ingredients. Ylang Ylang is also very well known for calming and balancing the mind, which really helps make it a soothing nightime remedy.  Patchouli is also fantastic for mood enhancing, as well as treating anxiety and depression.

I thought maybe 1 or 2 nights of good sleep could be a co-incidence, but over a week of deep sleep since using this product ?! surely it has something to do with it. I come from a family with sleeping problems and most nights it takes me a minimum of 1-2 hours to drop off, and then I wake up throughout the night a few times as well. However since using this product I have slept right through the night! its amazing :D -

However, I don't want to promise these kind of results for everyone, as we are all different... but in terms of its claims of being a sleep enhancing night serum I would 100% agree. It leaves your skin looking completely rejuvenated in the morning, which is amazing! I have been waking up looking half alive! so thats a huge bonus haha.

It's also really suitable for all skin-types and it hasn't left my combination skin oily in the slightest. It's still early days with this product but just over a week of perfect sleep and rejuvenated has left me feeling pretty good. The combination of aromatherapy and skincare benefits makes this product the perfect night time treat, and I really look forward to using it at night.
