A few weeks ago I was kindly sent a Silksleep Eye Mask to review. I’m very lucky as Busby generally sleeps well at night (now I’ve written this she’s never going to sleep again!). However, I do wish I could nap during the day when she does, as she usually sleeps on me during these naps, and I feel so exhausted at the moment!
I hoped the Silksleep Eye Mask might assist in my daytime napping, so I put it to the test.
I tried using it at night initially, as the light from outside comes shining through the rather rubbish curtains in our bedroom. However, I found it difficult to get to sleep in as I find anything from the norm distracting.
During the day, however, was a different story! Even if I don’t want to nap, it’s wonderful just to lie there in silence with a beautiful baby asleep on you and relax underneath the mask. I felt genuinely relaxed and refreshed after nap time, and ready for the next few hours of crawling!
I’m sure you’re all dying to know how it differs from a regular eye mask.
1. It’s made from 100% pure long fibre mulberry silk. This makes the eye mask feel beautifully luxurious.
2. It’s naturally hypoallergenic, so perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.
3. On the side that touches your face it has two soft pads for your “eye-bags”, which act as a kind of support for those exhausted eyes!
Another tip, if you have a headache pop it in its bag and leave it in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. Take it out and place it on your eyes – it feels amazing and the coolness of the silk is fantastic for those hormonal headaches.
The Silksleep Eye Mask retails at £24.95 and is available to purchase on the Silksleep website. I do feel this is on the pricey side and it’s definitely a luxury item! However, it would be fabulous as a special present for a Mummy-to-be or even a Granny. Silksleep have written about the benefits of the eye mask for new Mothers on their blog here.
