Hi guys! Happy Friday! Who’s ready for the weekend?
Today’s post is going to be a little different as I have a review for you on the Vita Sciences Maxabsorb Melatonin Cream. Vita Sciences sent me this product to try out in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion. You ready? Let’s do it!
Now I don’t know about you, but I get occasional insomnia. There are those nights where my brain refuses to turn off and let me sleep. That’s where the Vita Sciences Maxabsorb Melatonin Cream comes in to play.
If you didn’t know, melatonin is the hormone that controls daily day-night cycles of sleep. Some sleep disorders, such as insomnia and Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome (DSPS), are attributed to low melatonin levels. Plus travelers suffering from jet lag and graveyard shift workers may also benefit from supplemented melatonin. Turns out, as we age, our bodies do not make sufficient melatonin.
So this Maxabsorb Melatonin Cream is a way to topically deliver melatonin into your system. This cream promises to (per the Vita Sciences site):
- Decrease the time needed to fall asleep
- Increase sleepiness
- Increase sleep duration
Basically, it’s supposed to help you fall asleep faster, sleep longer and sleep better. You’re supposed to use just one pump of product and apply to your arms and legs right before you go to bed. Seems simple enough, right?
I’ve been trying this cream out for several days now and… I’m not sure it really works for me. This cream contains ingredients such as Aloe, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and of course Melatonin. I expected the cream to have a relaxing scent to it (like lavender), but it has no real scent to it at all. And only one pump doesn’t give you a whole lot of product to distribute/apply to your arms and legs. it feels nice going on and is moisturizing, which was a pleasant surprise.
The first night I used it, I didn’t feel any difference at all. I seemed to fall asleep as I normally do. The second time I used it, I did seem to fall asleep a little faster than usual, but I ended up waking up around every 3 hours, which was really odd. The third time I used it though, I decided to mix it with some of my lavender body butter. That seemed to do the trick because I could smell the lavender, which in turn helped me relax (lavender is a very calming scent) and thus helped me fall asleep quicker. I also only woke up once during the night (bathroom.. LOL!). So each time I’ve used this cream since, I’ve mixed it with the lavender body butter and got the same result each time.
I’d definitely suggest that Vita Sciences should add some kind of relaxing scent to this cream to make it more effective. But once I finally started seeing results, I’ve liked using this cream to help me sleep better on those nights when my brain refuses to shut up. I just wish I didn’t have to mix in a relaxing scent of my own to get results.
The Vita Sciences Maxabsorb Melatonin Cream sells for $19.95 on the Vita Sciences website.
Ok that should do it for today! As always thank you so much for reading. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you again Monday with a new post! 🙂
