Did you know 9 in 10 Americans say they have experienced trouble falling asleep**? That’s just about EVERYBODY! The worst is when you know you have a big day tomorrow, but you lay down and just know you’re not going to be able to fall asleep anytime soon. If you’re like me, you start counting down the hours stressing about how tired you’ll be the next day – only making it HARDER to fall asleep! I am no stranger to the dreaded ‘sleepless night’. I’ve taken melatonin supplements for years when I need a little help hitting the pillow – but about a year ago I discovered ZzzQuil™. It just about blew me away!
Never heard of it? ZzzQuil is a non-habit forming sleep-aid for relief of occasional sleeplessness. It is just for sleep, not for pain. ZzzQuil helps you fall asleep fast in as little as 20 minutes and sleep soundly.
If I have a long day the next day, or my mind is racing and I can’t fall asleep, I take my nightly shower and occasionally take ZzzQuil to help me fall asleep fast. No tossing and turning, looking at my clock and just hoping I fall asleep. It’s SO effective and I don’t have to stress about not being able to sleep, and being tired the next day.
Well I’ve got even MORE good news for you folks… Vicks® just came out with brand new nighttime products! Remember how I mentioned the melatonin supplement I would take? Well Vicks made my new favorite pre-bedtime addition – ZzzQuil™ PURE Zzzs™ Melatonin Gummies! They’re vegan, vegetarian, drug-free and contain melatonin along with a blend of lavender, chamomile, valerian root and lemon balm. They’re free of artificial flavors, gluten, lactose and gelatin – so pretty much everyone can take them and let me tell ya – they taste GREAT. I recommend taking one to two gummies 30 minutes before bedtime. For best results, use nightly and allow more than 6 hours of sleep.
After these arrived in the mail, my husband was having trouble sleeping so I gave him the gummies and he loved them! They’re just so calming, and I love going to bed in a good mood because I’m sleepy, and ready to cuddle up and get some zzz’s.
The last new step in my nighttime routine is Vicks® PURE Zzzs™ Soothing Aromatherapy Balm. It’s made with soothing essential oils, lavender, and chamomile. The formula is SO moisturizing with coconut oil and aloe leaf extract.
The lavender and chamomile scents are so comforting and truly soothing before bed. I use the balm when I really want to pamper myself. After a stressful day, my bedtime routine has become sort of a ritual of relaxation – I’ll take a shower, do my skincare routine, pop a melatonin gummy and then sit on the edge of my bed and rub the Vicks PURE Zzzs Soothing Aromatherapy Balm on my chest and neck. As I’m winding down, I smell the chamomile and lavender and NEVER HAVE YOU FELT SO PEACEFUL people. Sometimes I even just use the balm at night to relax while I’m reading a book before bed. It just helps me forget about any stresses of the day.
The Balm can be used by itself or paired with either the gummies OR ZzzQuil, just be sure not to use the gummies and ZzzQuil together! Remember, ZzzQuil is for those occasional nights when life is keeping you up and you would like to fall asleep fast. While the gummies can be used nightly to help you fall asleep naturally and wake refreshed*.
I’m so happy to be able to collaborate with Vicks on this post – I’ve been a ZzzQuil user for years, so these new products were something I was so excited to share with you guys. If I can help even one of you have a more relaxing night the new Vicks products – then my job here is done!
