So, this might be the last thing that you need right now, but if you’re struggling to sleep as a result of a headache or a migraine, or just plain insomnia, these heated eye masks could prove a godsend.
Hear me out. It’s obviously muggy and warm just now, so you might think that a nice cool eye mask might be exactly the thing you need, especially if you’ve got hay fever, but online reviews for this particular heating version are overwhelmingly positive.
The self-heating Spacemasks have been called ‘magic’ by folks who’ve used them. They’re apparently really relaxing, which is exactly what you need if you’re trying to get off to sleep under difficult circumstances.
Here’s how they work.
Basically, they start heating up as soon as they come into contact with your face. It’s as simple as that. They’re infused with a soothing jasmine too – that’ll help you drift off, no doubt.
Their website reads: “The heating process works by a thin layer of iron filings entwining with the oxygen molecules in the air. It is totally safe.
“The ever so relaxing jasmine is in a low concentration. So you can enjoy its fragrance without irritating the skin.”
You can rest easy knowing that they’re not going to touch your wallet too badly too. A pack of five of these miraculous masks will set you back only 15 quid.
As mentioned earlier, those who use them provide the best testimony for the masks qualities. One reviewer said: “I absolutely LOVE these and I’m a regular purchaser.
“Perfect for helping you to sleep, when you have a headache/migraine or just generally need to sit back and relax a little. Cannot recommend these enough!”
Another purchaser added: “They are lifesavers when you have a tension headache, need to relax or just want to switch off.
“They are my new favourite product.”
There you have it. Anyone who has ever had a migraine knows that you’d try anything to get some rest – let alone sleep – if it meant that the symptoms would ease slightly.
According to some of the other reviews they are also pretty great when it comes to soothing kids off to sleep. Oh, and people who are pregnant can enjoy their benefits too.
If that sounds like something you’d be in to, your best bet is to have a look about online and pick some up.
Here’s to getting some decent kip.
