Time to catch some zzzz’s.

It can be tough sometimes to get to sleep.

You’ve tried out counting sheep, switching up your sleeping position, drinking chamomile tea and what feels like everything in between – sometimes it just doesn’t work.

It turns out there is a Lush product being hailed a “miracle” for helping people struggling to nod off finally get to sleep.

And we’re definitely intrigued.

The product, called Sleepy, describes itself as a “dreamy lotion”.

It contains plenty of soothing ingredients like lavender oil and oatmeal infusion.

Sleepy was originally brought out as a limited edition last year around Christmas time, but has since been brought back as a regular product due to popular demand.

And it’s clearly been a hit with Lush fans, with people heaping plenty of praise onto the product – and giving it a 4.6 star rating on the site.

One person said:

“Oh man, I was SO happy to see this show up 6 months before I was expecting it!

“I have been using my small pot from Christmas sparingly – only when I was really stressed, or really having trouble falling asleep.

“That should tell you a bit about the magic of this lotion. It smells like sweet lavender and just makes you take a deep breath after you take a whiff.

“Can’t live without this lotion.”

Meanwhile, a different one wrote:

“I have trouble sleeping sometimes (who doesn’t, right?) and, when I’m having one of those nights, I just can’t drift off; no matter what I try.

“My Hubster bought me a gift, which contained this little gem and it changed everything.”

Another person said:

“I used to take anxiety medication for 11 years and had to stop recently which was pretty terrible.

“But I found that using and smelling Sleepy can help my anxiety not be as bad. It’s such a relaxing scent and I love using it!”

Sleepy is currently available in two sizes, either a 95g size or a 215g pot.

It costs around €8.80 (£7.95) for a small pot online, while a larger one will set you back approximately €15.50 (£13.95).

And it good news for Lush fans, we’ve double checked and Sleepy pots are definitely available at Lush shops in Dublin – so it’s even easier to get your hands on it.

It’s a bit steeper in the shops though – but at least there’s no delivery surcharge involved.

A small pot of Sleepy in Irish shops costs €10.95 while a larger one is €19.50.
