Falling asleep isn't always easy — and that's without your neighbor's garage lights flickering on and off, the glow from the TV in the next room and that annoying alarm clock aura. Do yourself (and your sleep schedule) a favor and invest in an eye mask. Good versions block out all that irritating light and make even a quick snooze feel like you've gotten hours of much-needed shut-eye. Amazon shoppers have been raving about one in particular — the Lulusilk Silk Sleep Eye Mask, which is on sale for just $10 right now. Looking for a secret-Santa gift? This baby is perfect!
It's no mystery why this mask has garnered such a fan base (we're talking nearly 7,000 five-star reviews) — it's made entirely out of mulberry silk, so it's hypoallergenic and gentle on sensitive skin. It's even filled with the same soft silk as the outside.
The best part — besides the price, of course — is the strap. Made from, you guessed it, silk, it's gentle on your hair and won't pull or snag your 'do, even if you toss and turn.
It's easy to take care of, too — either hand-wash it or toss it in the machine on the delicate cycle (though it's best to launder it separately from other items).
Work a night shift? This mask might help you during daytime slumbers.
"This mask is lovely," shared a happy shopper. "Just buy it and see how heavenly clouds of silk caress your eyes as you sleep. I am a night-shift worker, and this blocks out the light when I have to sleep during daylight hours — and I live in Hawaii, so it is always daylight hours. BUY this mask; it is worth every penny."
It's a game changer, too: "This eye mask has single-handedly changed my sleep game," shared a thrilled shopper. "I use it for bed at home, on airplanes, trains and road trips! It is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Soft, stays on and isn’t the slightest bit uncomfortable."
