Review: Soleil Sleep Spa

my Soleil Sleep Spa!
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had received a Soleil Sleep Spa and was in the process of testing it out. Now, for those of you who haven't heard of the Soleil Sleep Spa, it is a product that is supposed to help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and finally awaken feeling more refreshed. Without further ado, here is more information on the Soleil Sleep Spa, my experience, and complete review of the Soleil Sleep Spa!


  • NASA inspired sleep technology. Custom LED lights simulates a natural sunset at night, triggering your body to produce melatonin (sleep hormone). These same lights simulate sunrise in the mornings, triggering your body to produce serotonin (wakefulness). 
  • Three natural noise settings of Sleep Fitness White Noise, Relaxation Brook, and Rocky Ocean Shore. For heavy sleepers (like myself) there is also alarm settings of a traditional beeping alarm, or songs from an MP3 player. 
  • "Full Off" Setting for alarm clock display
  • USB charging station
  • Light switch: The sleep spa also has a switch to turn the light on or off, so it can be used as a bedside lamp as well. This is great for me at night, as I love to read before bed.

My Experience

So far, I have loved using the Soleil Sleep Spa. It does have a minimalist design, so it took a few moments to set it up and understand how to use all of the features- my advice is to be patient! If you know you want a certain setting to be activated, take the time to sit down with the manual and learn how to do it versus exploring by hitting random buttons. I do wish it had been a little bit more instantly user-friendly, but it only took a few minutes to get the hang of it. 

Because I (fortunately) very rarely need to wake up by a certain time, I have been using the natural light setting to wake up and have noticed that I have been rising earlier. Previously, I've been a huge advocate of naps and used to take one almost daily. I have not been needing a nap lately, and think it is very much due to sleeping better at night and waking up feeling rested. 

Two of my favorite features are that the LED clock display can be turned off- I like to have my room as dark as possible at night, so this is a huge bonus for me. I also love that the sleep spa has a USB charging station- it is so convenient to be able to use this and simultaneously charge my iPhone at night.  Plug in space is valuable around here!

The natural noise settings are also great. My husband always sleeps with a fan on for background noise, and as such I have gotten used to this. The sleep spa will be great both when at home and when traveling to provide this background noise.

The sleep spa is surprisingly light (less than two pounds!), which is a huge bonus for me. When moving back and forth between Sweden and Minnesota, I only take one 50-pound suitcase…as such, weight is a premium, and the lightness of this means I will be able to haul it back and forth. I'm greatly looking forward to seeing how the Sleep Spa will help me adjust to jet lag and time zone differences… Sweden to Minnesota is a 7 hour difference, and making this trip several times a year I can't wait to see how this will help me out! Fellow expats and travelers, definitely stay tuned for how the sleep spa helps me adjust to new time zones.
