That’s why a light-blocking sleep mask that’s gone viral online might be just the solution to getting our forty winks.
The £6.59 Gritin Sleep Mask is Amazon’s number 1 bestselling sleep mask where it has amassed over 7,000 reviews on Amazon.
So what makes this mask so special? Well, thousands of users are hailing it the comfiest mask they’ve ever worn, which is probably thanks to the fact it’s made from natural, lightweight and breathable material (pure cotton filled into pure mulberry silk fabric, to be precise).
According to FEMAIL, it’s also pretty damn good at blocking out the light thanks to the sheer size of the mask, which is larger than most. As one shopper raved: “Living in the far north of Scotland we get very light nights throughout the summer, and even with blackout curtains the bedroom isn’t very dark. The first night I used this mask I was amazed at what a massive difference it made. I thought it might be annoying and uncomfortable but it wasn’t; it’s very soft and has an adjustable strap. I don’t wake up at 4am now. It’s surprising just how much light gets in through your closed eyelids, but this mask cuts it out completely and sleeping in pitch darkness is great. I’ve only had this thing for a few days and I know already I can’t do without it!”
Another impressed user explained that they’ve used ‘quite a few different sleep masks and it does sound corny when I say personally speaking, this is the “creme de la creme” of sleep masks.’
“It’s very comfortable to wear, with an adjustable elasticated headband,” they wrote in the reviews section. “The quality and feel of the fabrics used are top notch and more importantly, if you are looking for a complete black out sleep mask then look no further. Buy with confidence and I dare you to say anything different concerning feedback. This is one of those products to buy if you desire a need for comfortable eye wear together with total blackout, making for a more comfortable and energising sleep.”
