I think I've gone too long without updating this blog and it's time I stop procrastinating and get back to it. I have been working these past few months and haven't had enough time for myself and for my favorite things like writing on this blog. After Halloween I was burnt out and had no idea were to go from there and what to write about because my life is very boring, at the moment I do nothing but work. But recently I received a few things to review from influenser and decided I can start from there.

The first box I received was a box which contained a new product from the creators of Vicks NyQuil that product being ZzzQuil. I wanted to try it out because the weeks prior to receiving it I had been working at hours that were beginning to wear me down. I got my birthday off so the night before I took the two capsules that came in my box. The product had a few points that I wanted to address in order to see how correct the product is to its statements.

The card that came along with the capsules had these few points written about the product...
  • Helps you fall asleep in less than 20 minutes
  • Sleep Soundlessly. Wake Refreshed.
  • Not for Pain. Just for Sleep.
  • Non-habit forming
  • Ensure time to get a sufficient night's sleep (7-8 hours)

I take showers at night before going to sleep which usually takes me 20 minutes so I decided to take my capsules before going into the shower in order to see if they made me feel sleepy or had any noticeable effects. I didn't feel any different and was not sleepy when I got out. I laid down after my shower and it took me a few minutes to actually fall asleep.

I can say that this is true I slept through the night even though it was very hot and usually that keeps me up. I woke up earlier than usual and I didn't feel like going back to sleep like other days. I actually woke up and felt like I had slept and didn't need five extra minutes before waking up. The entire week that followed I actually felt exactly the same way when waking up, I don't know if it was because of that one good night's sleep or because I got used to my schedule. 

Because of my bad sleeping schedule and the change of weather I was starting to get sick (sore throat) and when I woke up the next day I still felt sick. So yes this did not cure my sore throat, but I already knew that it wouldn't going in. 

I am not the type of person that gets addicted to things like coffee and such, so I wasn't scared of getting addicted to taking a sleep-aid. I only took it once and had no desire to take more, it is good to know that if I need help sleeping this product can help me, but I won't be buying it any time soon. I have people in my family who I think this can help though since they too have trouble sleeping.

I can't recall what time specially I went to sleep and then woke up when I took this, but it was some time after 11pm and then woke the next day before 8am. So, yes it did help me fall asleep the recommended hours in order to get a good nights sleep.

I truly think this product works as many of the other Vicks products do for me. I have never had a problem when taking any of the other medication from this company and I am proud to say that this is another medication I can now rely on if necessary.

Let me know if you have tried this or will try this any time soon and let me know some reasons why you can't fall asleep at night whether it be stress, the heat. or noisy neighbors (which are all my reasons as to why I lose sleep)... but please do let me know what keeps you up at night?

***I received #ZzzQuil for testing purposes from @Influenster and @ZzzQuil I #gotitfree this is not a #ad that I am being paid for, I am just a part of the #SleepLovers.***
