This sleep mask blocks out pesky ambient light, and it's half off right now — just $10

Everyone needs sleep. It's one of the few things we all have in common. And yet, Americans are notoriously sleep-deprived. Crazy, right? Especially when you consider the benefits of a good night's shut-eye, such as reduced stress, improved mood and a stronger immune system. And in case you're thrown off by what the clock says today, we've sprung forward — and that can mess with even the soundest sleeper. It's also the beginning of the National Sleep Foundation's Sleep Awareness Week. If you need help dozing off, we've found a pretty irresistible deal on a tried-and-true slumber helper: The super-popular Mavogel Sleep Mask is down to only $10.

Five layers of cushy, breathable material and two special cotton triangles on each side make for sound, deep, satisfying sleep.

Why do I need this?

If you struggle to clock the golden seven to eight hours of sleep each night, it's natural to seek out help. "You may not know why you're not sleeping well, and it's perfectly reasonable to try different things out to see if they work for you," said board-certified sleep medicine researcher Dr. W. Chris Winter, author of The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How to Fix It.

In your quest for better sleep, it's important to first check your sleep hygiene — that is, the things you're doing to help create the best environment possible to help you fall asleep and stay that way through the night. Discovering the right sleep aid is a personal process, but sleep masks are known to "give you more control over the darkness you're exposed to, and can be really helpful," Winter said. Made of five layers of super-breathable fabric, the Mavogel Cotton Sleep Mask is one way to block out pesky extra light.

What reviewers say

More than 56,000 five-star reviewers say they're better-rested thanks to this mask.

"I had other sleep masks I bought on Amazon that were cheap and fell apart," wrote one now-sound sleeper. "This mask is clearly well-made, durable, super soft and comfortable. And the nose bridge has a metal wire so you can bend it around your nose to seal out light."

"Buy it!" urged a fan who uses the mask to get sleep while traveling. "I can easily clip it to me as I'm boarding so I don't have to worry about where the mask is. It's super comfortable — think jersey material without the heat. Also, the nose has a wire in it, so you can pinch it or manipulate it to fit your nose, which minimizes the sun. ... This is my go-to mask for travel."

"I got this mask because the sun always wakes me up before my alarm," said a self-proclaimed insomniac. "The sun no longer wakes me up before my alarm, my only complaint is that because this sleeping mask works so well, when I take it off in the morning I'm basically blind from the amount of sun coming through my closed blinds! 10/10 highly recommend. Does the job too well."

"The fabric can warm up after some time on your eyes/face," cautions a final fan. "Mine rarely does it enough to bother me (I sleep with a fan on too), but others might want an eye mask made from a different material. Not a deal breaker for me, but I have removed it a few nights out of the year for getting a little warm."

These reusable, moldable earplugs are a simple, affordable way to comfortably block out unwanted sounds from snoring to noisy neighbors.

"Perfect if you have a snorer in your life," raved a five-star fan. "I cannot fall asleep with the sound of a measly fan, let alone a snorer. ... My roommate and best friend is the loudest snorer I have ever met, and thanks to these earplugs I can actually sleep peacefully. I no longer get enraged because I simply can't hear the snoring. They mold perfectly to your ears."
