From gummies to ear plugs, products to help you get the best night's sleep

WORLD Sleep Day is on Friday. It was developed to educate the world about the importance of getting enough sleep for health – and your mood!

Today we have had a look at ways to get some good quality sleep and our Beauty Editor has put brow gels to the test….

PHONE

  • SleepHalo, £39.99, sleephalo.com – buy here

Nobody advises you to sleep next to your phone – but I bet I’m not the only one who does! Now there’s a new gadget that allows you to charge your phone and protect against radiation at the same time.

You set up the SleepHalo, plug it in and simply lay your phone on top of it to charge. It looks really neat.

SleepHalo is an inductive loop wireless charger encased in a plastic enclosure that incorporates electromagnetic field shielding – to basically minimise the effects of radiation found in all mobile phones.

Some scientists believe EMFs can affect your body’s nervous system function and cause damage to cells.

Plus exposure can cause sleep disturbances. SleepHalo is simple, stylist, practical – and so good for your health.

PILLS

  • Wicked Gummy, £23.99 for 60 gummies, wickedgummyco.com – buy here

These look and taste like fruity sweets – but Wicked Gummy Co’s Peaceful Zzzzz sleeping pills actually work.

They contain 5-HTP, an amino acid that your body uses to produce serotonin.

This helps your body to sleep at night because serotonin is a precursor to melatonin, the hormone that signals your body when it is time to sleep.

Other ingredients include calming chamomile extract and lemon balm plus vitamin B6 which also helps to produce serotonin and melatonin.

I love these. I took two an hour before bed and had a brilliant, solid sleep.

EARPLUGS

  • EarHub’s new Sleepwell Silicone Earplugs, good value at £4.99 for a pack of three at ear-hub.com – buy here

They’re not the most attractive of things but if you are a light sleeper they can be a god send.

EarHub’s new Sleepwell Silicone Earplugs reduce noise by 27 decibels. Plus they reduce background noises and snoring by as much as 50 per cent.

These earplugs have been cleverly designed to form an airtight seal over the ear canal whilst being comfortable to wear all-night long.

And you can wash them in warm, soapy water and remould to use over and over again.

Good value at £4.99 for a pack of three

BUDGET

  • Maybelline brow fast sculpt eyebrow gel, £6.99, boots.com – buy here

Tinted eyebrow gel to shape and set brows all day.

I used the shade Deep Brown and found the highly pigmented gel gave me a great natural colour and thickness to my brows.

It sets hairs in place nicely whilst still leaving them soft and natural looking.

Available in 7 shades as well as a clear gel.

MID-RANGE

  • L’Oreal Paris, Unbelieva’Brow, £14.99, feelunique.com – buy here

Long-lasting gel to fill and volumise eyebrows.

Smudge-proof, transfer-proof and waterproof the colour will last for days unless removed with makeup remover.

A little fiddly to get the application right, first apply the colour with the blunt applicator, before shaping with the angled brush and fluffing up with spoolie brush and wait 90 seconds for the gel to set.

After this your brows won’t budge! Not as natural looking as the others, but if you want a bold block brow this is for you.

Available in 6 shades.

LUXURY

  • Bare Minerals, Strength & Length Brow Gel, £18, bareminerals.co.uk – buy here

Tinted brow serum enriched with red clover flower and potent peptides to help create fuller brows within 8 weeks.

Day to day this leaves your brows with a natural looking tint and over time encourages growth and thickness.

A bit tricky to get a defined shape, but the angled brush does help to cover the entire brow and the colour is buildable so I tend to do a few layers.

Brows looked a bit thicker as time went on, particularly around the arch of my brow.

Available in 3 shades plus a clear gel.
