NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS THIS MASK OR IF ALL OF THEM FEEL LIKE THIS. I HAVE TRIED TO USE; HOWEVER I REALIZE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT IT IS OFF. PERHAPS IT JUST TAKES GETTING USED TO.
it took a long time to get and it was not worth what I paid for it not happy at all
Works great and very comfortable–definitely recommended!
My husband likes to read in bed at night, but I often am the one to go to sleep first given that I have to get up earlier for work in the morning. Even when he keeps the lights low, I’ve found that this can interfere with me getting a good night’s sleep, so I began using sleep masks a few years ago. The first was a black mask similar in appearance to this one, but it was not a high quality product (I received it free from a hotel), and eventually, the elastic strap broke. My husband then purchased me a new mask in a local drug store. That one was quilted, which made it nice and thick, but because of this, it did not conform to my face as well, and thus it did not block out the light quite as well as I’d hoped.So, in search for another new mask, I turned to Amazon. This one was both relatively inexpensive and received high reviews, so I decided to try it. Surprisingly, it is sold and shipped from China, so it took a few days longer than usual to arrive. It came in a small package, wrapped only in plastic and accompanied by two things: 1) instructions that were entirely in Chinese (not that one really requires instructions for an eye mask, but still…), and 2) a small scrap of black fabric in a separate plastic bag, which I presume (since I cannot read the Chinese instructions) is intended to be used as a patch for the fabric if needed.Despite these oddities, the mask itself is an extremely comfortable, silky material. It has an elastic strap which adjusts with a simple slide feature–also quite comfortable, and much preferable to Velcro, in my opinion. The mask is slightly padded but relatively thin, which is a good thing, as it conforms easily to the contours of the face, blocking most of the light. The only (slight) issue I had with the mask is that I wish that the cutout for the nose had been on a greater angle so that the mask would have lied more firmly against my nose, blocking light seeping into that area. Still, the mask was easily adjusted, and it definitely blocked out more light than any other sleep mask that I have owned to date.So, I definitely would recommend this product, and I will update my review if there are any changes.UPDATE 9/18/13: No changes to report; I just wanted to confirm that this mask continues to work out very well. Because it is a bit thinner than my old mask, it is actually more malleable, and I find that it blocks out the better. Furthermore, it feels more comfortable and lightweight on my face. I highly recommend this product.
It is very itchy, I have only used it a couple times, and now it is banished to a box somewhere. I am disappointed.
I am completely satisfied with the quality of the silk mask. I have been using it for about a month now and it is holding up quite well.
