In today's "Review The Fabulous" post I am showing you my favourite bedtime essentials.
On my nightstand there is always at least one lip balm, a hand cream and mostly a fragrance spray for calmness. It is so important to nourish your lips and hands during the night to prevent moisture loss. You don't want to wake up with chapped lips and cracks on your hands, do you? During the summer it might not be as crucial as during winter, but I made using these products to my daily bedtime routine anyways. All right, when it's hot outside I may leave the hand creme, but never the lip balm!!
As for the spray: From time to time I just can't fall asleep. I am lying in bed for hours and I really hate when that happens. Not always, but very often I found that fragrance sprays like Ruhe (calmness) from Lichtjuwel, well, calm me down and help me fall asleep. Scents of lavender, melissa and bergamot help you let go of thoughts that keep you from falling asleep.
And among insiders this particular flair spray is known as "Anti-Monster Spray". Parents spray it under the bed of their children and in dark corners and tell their kiddies that it banishes monsters. How cute (and helpful) is that?

|The Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 protects and heals chapped lips and protects them from the drying effects of cold weather. Well, you might not find a lot of wind in your bedroom, but I grew found of this classic balm as it is soft on your lips and soothes them. Available in a tube here and scented here.|
|The Hurraw! Night Treatment Balm smells like vanilla and chamomile and the creamy texture is extra rich and thick. This one I always have with me for the night and it lasts very long on your lips. Sometimes I can still taste and feel it in the morning. Available here.|
|The Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is a real life-safer for me. During the winter I always have cracked, bleeding hands. And that hurts. A lot!! And most hand creams just burn and do not show any effect. But this slightly minty smelling and therefore a little cooling, thick and rich salve is perfect. Like it says on the tube – It's an "All-day care for severely dry, active hands" and in my opinion a must-have on your night stand all-year-round. I use it on coarse elbows and knees, too. Available here in two different sizes.|
