There’s something that you all should know about me: I don’t get much sleep. And when I do manage to sleep, if the smallest amount of light enters into my room, I turn into a raging, angry monster. Something like this:
What? Didn’t you feel threatened looking at that version of me in the morning? Let’s just say that I am not happy when light comes into my room. I have blackout curtains for the bright sun that shines into my room in the morning. Although my blackout curtains work, when light happens to break free of its barrier, it can lead to early morning headaches that I do not want to deal with. Enter in the Sleep Sublime Eye Mask by Smarter Rest. I have used eye masks in the past, but not one like this.
I used to purchase those cheap eye masks from Claire’s that always seemed to be off of my face by the time I wake up in the morning after a wild night of sleep. As a tosser and a turner, I need sleep masks that will stay on my face, not matter how many times I roll my face across my pillows. The Sleep Sublime Eye Mask has an adjustable Velcro band that allows me to dictate how snug or loose I want this eye mask to sit on my face. It has a nice satin fabric that rests over the bridge of your nose for comfort, as well as a soft material that goes over your eyes to block out all the light. This mask also came with ear plugs in case you are sensitive to noises, or just want the full quiet experience for sleep. This mask also came with a nice, satin case to store your mask and ear plugs each day, as well as an instruction sheet on how to use the eye mask to its fullest potential. You also get a nice e-book for purchasing this sleep mask, which is cool.
I couldn’t wait until nightfall came for me to use this mask. I have been using this mask without the ear plugs (as I am used to noises throughout the night), and I have to say…I love it. This mask makes sleeping and waking up in the morning a little easier for me. I love that this elastic, Velcro band stretches and still remains snug to my eyes. When I woke up in the early morning, I had to remove this mask; it didn’t slip off my eyes which was a huge win for me. If you’ve been here for a while, you may have seen me rocking a huge Marley braid afro as my protective style. Y’all…the mask fits over my big hair AND bonnet combo. That is what sealed the deal for me. I love that I am able to not only protect my hair at night, but I am able to sleep better with this mask over my eyes without sacrificing the health of my hair.
This product, in theory, would also be good from migraine sufferers. I don’t get migraines too often, but when I do, I do not want to see the world “light.” This product blocks out the light nicely, so I could imagine how well this works when you’re trying to avoid light while dealing with a migraine. I will test this theory out and get back to you all.
Personally, I have nothing bad to say about this product. You can find this product on Amazon for $9.95. It’s worth every penny in my book. I received this product on June 15th, and have been using it every single night. I am grateful that I can now truly be a vampire in my dark room and keep all light out until I am ready to face the world. I will leave the purchase link below if you all want to check it out.
That’s it for my review. I hope you all enjoyed and found it interesting. Let me know if you want more information, and I’ll gladly give it to you. Until next time, boos!
