Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask review

Hey guys! Christmas is on the way, so that means that we’re going to be not only shopping and attending parties, but a lot of us will be doing a lot of travelling over the festive period. Travelling can be tiring, but sleeping on public transport can also be difficult. On top of that, we all know that enough rest helps our skin to look fresher and true beauty comes from within, so the better we feel, it’s going to show. So with this in mind, today we will be focusing on something slightly different here on the blog in the hopes of helping out with getting the best rest during the most chaotic time of the year.

The Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask is a contoured eye mask for blocking out light so that you can rest peacefully. It is comfortable and lightweight and is made of bamboo and cotton. The patented, contoured design means that the mask fits well over the eyes and you can even open your eyes with the mask on without any issues.

The contoured design actually means that this mask is not going to smudge your makeup if you apply it with a full face of makeup on, meaning that it is the perfect option for anyone who wants to sleep during the daytime without bright lights glaring down on them without looking like a raccoon upon awakening.

Not only is this good for travelling, but if you have a partner who likes to keep the light on for reading or working late when you need to get some shut eye, or live in a busy neighbourhood where it may be difficult to block out the external lights from outside, then this is also for you.

The mask comes in a range of 4 colours and each mask comes with a complimentary pair of ear plugs and a travel case. 

Feedback and Thoughts:

The Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask has an elastic band that fits around your head with a velcro fastening. So the first thing to do is to fit the mask over the eyes, and adjust the velcro strap around the head for a comfortable fit. I did feel a little nervous about the velcro strap as I wasn’t sure if it was going to get tangled into my hair, but thankfully that’s not the case.

Once on, the mask definitely blocks out the light, but the fit does seem to be better for some over others. The bridge of my nose is very thin, so whilst I do still get a good fit and a good blackout, the bridge on the mask is a little wide for me. I can adjust the strap of the mask to pull it tighter and lower the mask down so it’s a better fit, but for most people this shouldn’t be an issue anyway. 

Another issue I have with it is a short hair issue, but it is another solvable one. The band slips down and underneath my hair which might leave a little bump in your hair as you sleep. That’s a relatively minor issue though because if you’re aware of it you can adjust the strap accordingly to avoid the problem. 

Whilst there can sometimes be a little bit of makeup transfer (as shown in the above photo), I’ve not encountered any makeup smudging. The contoured design means that the mask avoids your eyes entirely, so even if you were wearing eyeshadow it shouldn’t catch the eye area at all. The transfer for me came from my forehead, above the eyebrows and the cheekbones. The contoured design is also incredibly comfortable so it’s easy to forget you’re actually wearing it. 

For the beauty fan who loves to travel, there’s a bunch of essentials to pack: A good travel cosmetics bag, hydrating sheet masks, and now, a good sleep mask that won’t ruin your makeup whilst you sleep. 

This is a really great eye mask, easily the best one I’ve ever tried. Other regular masks don’t ever seem to block out the light completely and you also can’t open your eyes easily when wearing them. They also don’t tend to be adjustable and the elastic can begin to loosen over time meaning that you may go through a fair few of them. 

If you’re reading this and thinking that it sounds like something you need, I recommend that you don’t hesitate. You might even be reading this and thinking of someone in particular who may find it useful, in which case, now is the perfect time to grab one for someone you care about for Christmas to give a practical gift of better sleep. Who doesn’t want that?!

You can grab a Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask from Amazon or Bedtime Bliss directly if you're in the USA.
