Sleep plays such an important role in our health and wellbeing yet so many of us are deprived of it. Sleep disorders are on the rise, with insomnia being the most prevalent in the struggle for some shut-eye. 16 million adults in the U.K are suffering from sleeping problems with 23% revealing that they sleep for five hours or less each night!
So when the team at Time 2 Sleep asked me to review their Gel Eye Mask, I couldn’t say no. Sleep issues are having a serious effect on the quality of our lives and I think we have all found ourselves in a position where we have struggled to get a decent night’s sleep due to various factors. In this post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Gel Eye Mask and revealing whether it did anything to help my sleeping experience.
Helps with headaches and migraines
Reduces sinuses pressure
Treats puffy eyes and dry eyes
One of the things that I really like about this mask is that its comfortable. It’s decently sized and fitted with an elastic band, so you don’t need to worry about adjusting it in any way, which is perfect. The material on the back is also so soft and it just made me feel a lot more relaxed. It is excellent quality as I’ve had it for a few weeks and it doesn’t even have a single tear on it. On the website, all users are informed that there are two ways you can decide to use this mask:
For cold use: Place in the fridge for two hours or overnight
For warm use: Heat in the microwave with the material facing down for 30 seconds. If the mask isn’t warm enough, you have the option of heating it for another 15 seconds.
I opted for warm use because I felt that I would have quicker results and I did. The mask did retain heat for 30 minutes as promised on the packaging and I felt so much better and relieved when I woke up in the morning. When I struggle with sleep, I like to meditate. Just being still and tuning in with my body and surroundings really helps. I would recommend ensuring you are entirely relaxed before you use this mask. Another benefit I experienced is that my puffy eyes have been relived which I love. I didn’t experience complete migraine relief. The mask is very easy to clean and its eco-friendly so you don’t need to worry about causing any harm to the environment. The mask also comes with a free travel case so if you are going away, storing it is very simple.
My overall verdict on the Gel Eye Mask is that it’s a very nice product. There aren’t a lot of eye masks out there that offer health AND beauty benefits so you are getting very good value for money. The mask can also be used during the day too, not just at nighttime. Its the perfect pick me up for anyone who wants to improve or maintain their attitude towards sleep.
The Time 2 Sleep Gel Eye Mask is available now and is priced at £10.96 (was £14.99)
