Get Your Beauty Rest With ZzzQuil | Help For Occasional Sleeplessness

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZzzQuil. All opinions are 100% mine.

Surely you have experienced difficulty sleeping, tossing and turning with frustration. Sleeping is important for our mental and inner physical health but sometimes we forget that it also has an impact on our appearance. The resting phase is a huge factor in skin health, remember that darlings! As a beauty blogger, I know first hand how lack of good nightly rest can show on the outside…starting with the eyes! If you’re following my on Facebook or Twitter, you probably know I’ve been having a bout with sleeplessness. It showed big time on my face, dark circles galore! Let’s not talk about my lack of work productivity at the time, yikes! I needed sleep badly! P&G came to the rescue and provided me with a sample of ZzzQuil!

ZzzQuil is a sleep-aid by the makers of Vicks NyQuil and it is available over the counter! ZzzQuil isn’t for colds, the active ingredient is diphenhydramine HCI which helps lessen the amount of time it takes to fall asleep. That’s exactly what I need, since my problem isn’t staying asleep…it’s falling asleep in the first place! It comes in LiquiCap® or liquid form and I got the liquid Warming Berry flavor which is good since I’m horrible with swallowing pills. If you’re the same way and need an over the counter sleep aid, ZzzQuil is your best bet since it is the only one available in both forms.

I like the ZzzQuil packaging for two reasons. First, the label is different so I don’t confuse it with NyQuil which is also in my medicine cabinet. Second, I love that I can see how much product is left in the bottle. You all know how I loathe running out of things and not having a replacement handy! I have asthma and bronchitis so I asked my doctor first as suggested on the warning label. She gave me the green light so that night I read the directions and poured myself a dose of 2 tablespoons using the handy measuring cup included.I was a bit worried the ZzzQuil liquid Warming Berry would taste horrible like liquid medicines products but it wasn’t bad at all. I didn’t need to chase it with a cup of juice, there is no lingering taste and it truly does have a warming effect.

It took me about 45 minutes to fall asleep which is great since I’d been fighting to sleep for several hours on my own an entire week prior! I felt ready for bed but not uncontrollably tired or loopy. I woke up to my morning alarm with no problem, I didn’t feel drowsy or sluggish. I felt awesome and refreshed! I did take a second dose the next night and have been back on my regular sleeping pattern on my own ever since. I haven’t needed to use ZzzQuil in about 2 weeks but I’m glad I have it on hand in case I have another sleepless period again!

    This looks interesting – I hadn't seen it before. You didn't feel dried out or dehydrated at all when you woke up, did you?

    I didn't even know that nyquil made this. Thanks for the review I have been looking for something to help me fall asleep at night.
