10 Amazon sleep products insomniacs swear by to get a good night's sleep

These Amazon sleep products can help you get more shut-eye

Lack of sleep is a killer – no, literally – it can actually shave years off your life. And of course, exercising and making sure you avoid screens an hour before bedtime can help you sleep better – but there’s also a whole range of handy products out there that can help you get more zzzs.

With that in mind, I decided to scour Amazon for some of the best sleep products shoppers swear by for helping them sleep better.

And I can give several of these the thumbs up myself. As a light-sleeping, sleep-deprived mum-of-two with a snoring husband, I’ve owned several of these products myself over the years in the quest for longer and better quality sleep.

Why should you invest? You’ll feel better and you’ll look better too – when you sleep, your skin cells repair and harmful toxins are removed, so when people talk about needing their beauty sleep, they’re not lying!

Check out the list of sleep aids – but bear in mind that these are not a substitute for proper sleep hygiene practices, such as maintaining a consistent sleep schedule and avoiding stimulants and screen time before bed...

Best Amazon sleep products


This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, £15.75 (WAS £21), Amazon


Just like the name says – this works! I keep this in the bedside table drawer and give the pillow a spritz before climbing into bed. It’s a super blend of Lavender, Vetivert and Camomile, which has an instant calming effect. Use it for a while and you start to associate it with falling asleep, so all you have to do is inhale the lovely scent and you’re already halfway to slumber land.

Soundcore by Anker Sleep A10 Bluetooth Sleep Earbuds, £119, Amazon


I have these earbuds, and I cannot recommend them enough. On nights when my husband's snoring is really bad, I can’t hear him at all. You can fall asleep listening to some relaxing music, and when you fall asleep, they magically switch to your choice of sleep sound – whether white noise, a bubbling stream, birds, or whatever you choose. They also have sleep monitoring – which gives you personalised insights into your sleep health, and an alarm clock. They’re super light and comfortable so you don’t feel them at all.

Marpac Yogasleep Travel Mini Portable White Noise Sound Machine, £34.95, Amazon


I discovered the benefits of white noise when my kids were babies, and after using it to get them to sleep while co-sleeping, realised it was helping me too. I’ve been through several machines but this is by far my favourite as it has a dimmable night light and a range of different sounds, and you can set it to shut off with a timer or leave it going continuously. The size is perfect for travelling too.

Simba Hybrid Foam Mattress Topper Double, £349, Amazon


Another product I can file under ‘got it and loved it’ – Just a few weeks after adding this Simba mattress topper to our five-year-old mattress, both me and my other half agreed that we were both sleeping better, plus he realised that the niggling bad back he’d had for a while had completely disappeared! It’s a great way to upgrade your mattress without shelling out for a completely new one. It’s a hybrid blend of aerated foam and micro springs which hug your every move.

Lumie Bodyclock Rise 100, £84.51, (WAS £88) Amazon


Using a sunrise alarm can help you establish a healthy sleep routine and wake up feeling more rested and energized. They can help you sleep better by simulating a natural sunrise, which can help regulate your circadian rhythm and improve the quality of your sleep.

What is a circadian rhythm?

What’s the deal with the circadian rhythm? It’s the body's internal clock that regulates sleep and wake cycles. It’s affected by exposure to light and darkness, among other factors. When you wake up to a sudden, jarring sound from a run-of-the-mill alarm clock, it can disrupt your body's natural rhythms and leave you feeling groggy and tired.

But sunrise alarm clocks like this one from Lumie gradually increase light intensity, mimicking a natural sunrise, which can stimulate the production of cortisol, a hormone that helps you feel awake and alert in the morning. This gradual increase in light can also suppress the production of melatonin, a hormone that makes you feel sleepy, making it easier to wake up feeling refreshed.

This fab clock also includes a sunset mode, helping you fall asleep naturally at night.

Manta Sleep mask, £39, Amazon


Light-blocking eye masks are definitely a sleep essential – especially if you want to nap during the day, or have a lie-in once the sun is up. This 100% light-blocking eye mask isn’t the cheapest, but it’s Amazon’s top-rated with over 10k positive reviews. It’s fully adjustable to suit any face shape or size, super comfortable and has zero eye pressure. It’s machine washable and comes with a set of earplugs and a case/wash bag.

Boniesun blackout eye mask, £6.79 (WAS £8.99), Amazon


And if you’re looking for a budget version, this is the one. Nearly 5k positive reviews, with shoppers giving it a massive thumbs up for comfort, fit and light-blocking properties.

Loop Quiet noise-reducing ear plugs for sleep, £19.95, Amazon


These reusable silicone earplugs reduce most noise and help you get in your bubble. They have a noise reduction rating of 27 decibels and come in six different colours. They come with tips of four different sizes so you can find the best size to fit your ear – try a smaller size if they feel uncomfortable or stick out, or go up a size if they don’t feel secure.

20 pairs of moldex spark ear plugs, £3.89 (WAS £4.99) Amazon


Again, leaving you the budget option here to choose from when it comes to disposable earplugs for sleeping. Over the last ten years, I’ve tried every ear plug going, and these are by far the best. They’re very comfortable and block out noise really well. You roll them between your fingers, insert them in your ear and they expand.

Dodow sleep aid device, £49.90, Amazon


This is a clever little machine which could be a great option for anyone who struggles with falling asleep. It was designed by insomniacs and has over 1 million users worldwide. It guides you through a meditation exercise – you breathe in time to a pulsing light which projects onto the ceiling. The company reports that their users fall asleep or get back to sleep 2.5 times faster on average – which adds up to gaining over 100 more hours of sleep per year!

Sleep Supplement with 5HTP, Magnesium, and Chamomile, £15.29, Amazon


First of all, it’s always best to check with a doctor before you start taking any kind of supplement. But if your healthcare provider gives you the green light – trying a supplement with 5-HTP, like this one, could be an option to help you sleep better.

What is 5-HTP?

5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptophan, is a chemical compound that is naturally produced in the body from the amino acid tryptophan. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which plays a key role in regulating mood, appetite, and sleep.

5-HTP can increase serotonin levels in the brain, which in turn can promote relaxation and drowsiness – and ther’s some evidence to suggest that taking 5-HTP as a supplement may help improve sleep quality, particularly in people who suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders.

Also, 5-HTP may help regulate the body's natural sleep-wake cycle by increasing levels of another neurotransmitter called melatonin, which regulates sleep patterns.
