Jasmine Silk Sleep Mask
To help people live better with cancer, we donate $1000 to the American Cancer Society every month.
Sleeping can be hard due to constant thoughts and stress. A sleeping mask is a great way to block out unwanted light sources. This silk eye mask is made of 19 MM charmeuse silk, filled 100% long mulberry silk floss. Silk is naturally hypo-allergenic so it is beneficial to those who suffer from sensitive or itchy skin.
Available in chocolate brown and black.
Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?
A sleep mask is helpful when trying to rest in the daytime or in a bright hospital ward. The silk material is necessary for sensitive/burnt/itchy skin.
Best eye mask I've had
I've tried several types of eye mask before, being one of those unfortunate people who wake as soon as first light appears, even if it's only 3am . . . Others always seem to leave a crack of light showing somewhere, and also can build up the heat in warmer weather. This one, though, completely shuts out the light (hurray!) and yet at the same time it's lightweight and very breathable. I've taken this with me on holiday a couple of times now, and I was extremely pleased with it. I can thoroughly recommend it.
I am now on my 3rd one of these eyemasks in 4 years and can 100% recommend it. The elasticated strap is fully adjustable, and the eyepads themselves mask out the light to a high degree, the raised aspect of the lower part of the pad works especially well to fill any gaps around the irregular aspect of the cheekbone. I use these every single night, at home, on flights, and in hotels around the world and would probably find it hard to sleep without one now. My reason for starting is that my wife can be an insomniac on occasion, reading by bedside light in the small hours, and as a light sleeper this drove me insane for years as once woken I could never go back to sleep easily. The change, once I decided I needed to try a sleeping mask, was immediate and I started sleeping straight through - that convinced me! This is a well made product that is washable and considering how many hours a week I use it is very durable. I spent a lot of time initially reading reviews as I wanted a high quality product rather than a 'fashion' item - I have not been let down and strongly recommend this.
Try it! If you've never tried sleeping with a mask you may be pleasantly surprised!
I always assumed I would hate sleeping with a mask on because it might feel claustrophobic or something but I honestly love this product! I can't comment on how this one compares to other masks in general as it's the only one I've ever tried but it's definitely super comfortable and has really improved the quality of my sleep - I used to find that I woke up easily when it started to get light outside but now I generally sleep through until my alarm goes off. I also love the silky feel of this particular product and although the elasticated band isn't covered in silk, as the picture seems to show, it's still very comfy. Some reviewers have questioned how much this mask completely blacks out the surrounding light or not but I think this may be partly due to the tightness or otherwise of the strap. For my purposes, they block out plenty enough to make a massive difference and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has difficulty sleeping due to light.
This is the perfect eye mask, silky and compfortable to wear and blocks out all the light, whilst looking attractive too! Would reccomend!
Comfy and practical
This mask is very soft silk which is nice and gentle on the skin. The headband doesn't adjust but is elasticated so imagine it would fit most people. Although it doesn't block out 100% of light it does enough to enable me to sleep when there is light in the room and is better than others which promise to block all light but do so at the expense of comfort (so it's impossible to sleep with them on anyway!).
