All Is Calm*

For as long as I can remember, I've always struggled when it comes to sleeping during the night. I don't really know the reason for that, but if you know me, you'll know that I'm usually always awake, restless or both at the same time.
When I came across Kiss The Moon on social media, I knew that they were going to be a brand I'd grow to love, and rely on. I'd never actually heard of them from any other bloggers or YouTubers either, which drew my attention towards their products even more.
If you go onto their website, you'll be able to see that they have been featured in various magazines, from the likes of Grazia, Elle and The Telegraph. They were even the winners of the Best New British Brand Pure Beauty Awards 2016. That's pretty impressive for a brand you may not have heard of before, don't you think?
From a variety of different skincare and body products for you to test out, ranging from bath oils and face polishes, to candles and pillow mists, you really will be spoilt for choice and I'm sure you will find what works for you within an instant.
There are 4 different blends that you can choose from: Love, Glow, Calm and Dream. If you're unsure as to what the differences between them are or you don't know what would be best suited for you, there's a matchmaker test on their website, so all you have to do is answer a couple of quick questions and you'll have got it all sorted!
All of the products are 100% natural, and they don't contain any nasties, which is great if you're already cruelty free, or if you're looking to make that lifestyle choice during 2017 like myself.
In the above photo is the Calm After Dark Balm, evidently from their Calm range, as the name suggests. I was very kindly sent the sample size of this balm by the PR ladies at Kiss The Moon for review purposes, which I'm incredibly grateful for. Both Jo (the founder), and Katie (another lady behind the brand) are such lovely women, and they were so generous, and friendly when speaking to me. It's almost as if I had met them before!
I spoke about how I had exams coming up in December and expressed my concerns about the expected stress levels, which were no doubt going to affect my sleeping pattern even more so than usual. In order to try and help me relax, I got sent this After Dark Balm, which I was so happy about, because I knew that it was selected especially and I couldn't wait to see what it was like and whether it had the desired effect.
Straight away, I knew I wasn't going to be disappointed. As you can see, it comes in a nice, little container, which looks really sleek, and expensive. Even just from the first impression, it's clear to see that this is a luxurious brand and I think that the aesthetics are absolutely perfect.
Inside is a pretty thick, white consistency. It looks a little bit like a paste, but I think that shows just how good the quality is, because it's clearly made with a lot of consideration in all of the details, no matter how big, or small they may seem. On the back, it prompts you to 'Simply massage into your pulse points to quieten your mind and help you drift off to sleep'. That's exactly what I do and I find that it works an absolute treat. It smells pretty strong, but it definitely gives the impression that you're in a spa. I find it very soothing and it instantly makes me feel relaxed and comforted before I settle down. All I do is massage a small amount into my pressure points, and usually I just let the aroma make its way into my nostrils to send me off into a peaceful dream within seconds.
I really do think that if you combined this balm with some of the other products in the range, you wouldn't have anywhere near as many restless nights spent counting sheep.
Some of the other things I want to try out soon are the bath infusions, soy candles, pillow mists and the face polish. I think it would be nice to mix and match the 4 blends to create the best night time routine that you could have ever imagined. You'll be away with the fairies in no time.
Thank you so much once again to the lovely, thoughtful PR team at Kiss The Moon for sending me this gift and allowing me to review it on my blog. I really do appreciate it!
Would you try anything from Kiss The Moon? Have you ever heard of them before?
Lots of love always,
