Contoured Sleep Mask Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I was sent this really nice sleep mask by Dream Essentials a few weeks back and have been using it on the days that I don't sleep at night and have to catch up on my sleeping during the day. It did take me some time to get used to having something over my eyes, but once I did, I was able to forget I even had it on. This particular one is called a Contoured Sleep Mask and it comes in one other color, which is black and this color is called Aqua.
The fabric is soft, flexible and breathable - so your head stays cool when you sleep. The soft polyester fabric is padded and has a contoured shape that gently covers your eyes. The elastic strap is extra wide and attaches with Velcro.

I did manage a few times to sleep with it on and did not have to velco it together in the beginning until I got used to it. I can only sleep in one position with my bad back and shoulders so I never roll over and sleep pretty much in what I call a twisted shape. I have a lot of joint issues so I have to be careful what lands on what so I have figured out what I call my twisted shape and it only works on our couch so that is where I have to sleep so that the back supports me and I don't roll over.
Because of that, I was able to keep the Contoured Sleep Mask on most of the night and it didn't move! Once I got used to it being on my head and face, then I started using the straps. My husband even tried it a few times when he had trouble sleeping at night and had to take some afternoon naps. He is really a lot worse than me. I have gotten to where I can sleep no matter what is going on but he can't stand for there to be any light whatsoever. He even shuts the bathroom door because of the nightlight!
He says it keeps him awake! I am really? It's such a small light and the door was already mostly closed anyway. I leave it open a tiny crack so I can see and even that bothers him. I told him he needed to learn to relax. Wound up too tight, in my opinion! Anyway, he is the one who got the most use out of this mask and I was grateful to finally have something that would help him take some naps during the day so he wouldn't be so grouchy.
If it can work for him, then this sleep mask will work for just about anyone because he really is hard to please when it comes to how dark he likes it when he lies down. I have seen him pull the covers over his head in the early morning when it's barely light out. You would think he is a vampire the way he carries on!
Dream Essentials has a lot of different styles and colors to choose from so I don't think you will have a problem finding one to suit you. They also offer some really nice customer service perks such as 45 days to try it out and if you don't like it, you can return it and get your money back! Not many places let you have a product for that long! You will also get Free Shipping if you spend over $25.00. You can also get 10% off when you sign up for their Newsletter.
I thought these 2 questions and answers pretty well sum up why Sleep Masks can be beneficial:

What do Eye Masks do?

Eye masks are designed to keep all incoming light away from your eyes and to induce a state of pure darkness.
An Eye Mask also called a Sleeping Mask is a device typically made from fabric that is intended to cover both eyes, the device has an elasticated strap that holds the mask onto your head. Place the mask over your eyes to induce a state of darkness or block unwanted light.

How does the Eye Mask work?

When your brain senses pure darkness, it causes the production of melatonin, the chemical of sleep. To help induce this state, you can also use earplugs. When you block out both noise and light, your chances of falling asleep are improved. People who sleep regularly during the day, such as nurses or other shift workers can benefit greatly by using them.

They also sell more than Sleep Masks! You can also get Ear Plugs, Body Pillows, Children's Sleep Masks, Dry Eyes Remedies, Travel Accessories, Clocks, Foot Therapy, Neck and Shoulder Wraps, Sleep Music, Music Pillows and the list goes on! You can even get special Christmas Gift Sets already made up for you to save you time.
