This morning this lovely Holland and Barrett beauty box arrived in the post and we wanted to share our first impressions with you guys. The box contain's four products and a guide to help promote a good night's sleep.

There is nothing like a good night's sleep to help you feel fresh and rejuvenated. So we are up for anything that will promote this!

Step one: Wonder Oil £10.99
Wonder Oil is described as a heavenly combination of oils, herbs and fruits for use on skin, hair and nails. The guide suggests pouring some oil into a hot bath and taking a relaxing soak prior to bed time.
However it sounds like it is a great multitasking product with a multitude of options. It smells fresh and delicious. A lovely citrous scent for spring.

Step two: Cherry Juice Concentrate £11.69
Cherrie's contain the sleep hormone melatonin, which we couldn't help but Google to find out more information! Wikipedia tells us that it is a hormone which we produce in a gland just outside our brain and which is involved in regulating the sleep-wake cycle. It does not cause sleepiness but it advances the phase slightly.

The product is 100% pure and natural there are no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives. It is suitable for vegetarians and vegans which we are glad to here. Cherry is a strong flavour and can be bitter so we are interested to see how this will taste!

Step three: Lavender Essential Oil £4.99
I'm sure we've heard about and may even have tried adding a few drops of lavender oil to our pillow to allow us to drift off to sleep. We do like the scent of lavender oil and find it rather calming. This product will definitely be beneficial in promoting a good night's sleep.

Step four: Dr Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Night Cream £9.49
The Dr Organic Night Cream has been added for a night time skin boost. Argan Oil has received a lot of hype in the beauty community but we are yet to try a product with argan oil, so we're looking forward to testing how this product works out.

From first impressions this is a thick cream which feels rather rich and luxurious. It's free from parabens, SLS, Artificial colours, fragrances and harsh preservatives so a big tick on that respect. The product claims to help soften the skin, promote collagen synthesis to assist with younger looking skin, as well as visibly reduce lines and wrinkles, so lets see how we get on.

We are excited to have the opportunity to trial these products and of course it goes without saying that we will be fully reviewing each of them once we've had a chance to test them out.

Unfortunately we don't think that the beauty box is available to buy as a box. However you can buy all of the products mentioned individually to mix and match and create your own little good night's sleep box at Holland and Barrett either instore or online. There is currently a buy one get one half price deal going on.

Have your tried any of these products from Holland and Barrett? What are your thoughts?
