Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask Review

Light Blocking Soft and Comfortable Night Eye Mask

Sleep Eye Mask

Everybody needs sleep otherwise our minds and bodies wouldn’t be able to function properly. A good night’s sleep does more than relieve tiredness, it help to reduce stress, helps recharge the body, improves your mood and helps build a stronger immune system to starve off illness and diseases. Everybody has a internal body clock that help to regulate their sleep pattern, but I think mine has a faulty battery as I wake up a few times during the night and seem to be getting up between 4 and 5am every morning, seven days a week. As I like to sleep in total darkness, which means I switch the television off at the wall so its beady red standby light isn’t staring at me through the night but still have faint light from the alarm clock, I thought that I would try the Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask, which claims to block out all light.

I have previously tried a sleep eye mask and whilst they do block light I have found that they are not 100% effective, they do tend to let in a bit of light around the nose area. The Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask looks the same as other eye masks I have seen, including having the extra piece of fabric for the nose, but it does have a big and better quality than others I have seen or used as the nose piece has a bendable cartilage design which is adjustable and effectively blocks lights coming from the nose area.

In the box:

  • Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask
  • Travel Pouch

I have always thought of an sleep eye mask as a thin piece of fabric that covers the eyes to help block out as much light as possible. The Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask is like having soft and comfortable blackout curtains for your eyes. This sleep mask features 5 layers of super soft breathable fabric, including cotton, elastic sponge and modaier. It features an adjustable head strap and nose piece.

As the clocks will be springing forward at the end of March, the mornings will be also be getting lighter earlier. And unless you have a habit of getting up at silly-o’clock like me, then you want as much interrupted sleep as possible. And the Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask will help deliver that, it really does block out all available light.

My biggest concerns about wearing a sleep eye mask are:

  • How comfortable will it be to wear
  • Will it be effective and block out all light

Let’s start with the comfort. The sleep eye mask is super soft. It feels slightly padded and the eye cover is a good thickness. The mask covers the eyes, has wings at the sides so that the straps are not pushing against your temples, the nose piece is nice and soft. The elasticated strap is adjustable. As a whole piece, I found that the comfort was excellent, I didn’t feel any pressure on my eyes (I could still comfortably open my eyes under the mask – although obviously I couldn’t see a thing), the side wings prevented any pressure on my temples and the strap, whilst initially you are aware its there, is comfortable and you soon forget its there as it is adjustable for the best and most comfortable fit. The nose piece has a wire cartilage that you can pinch and bend to fit your nose and I didn’t really feel it was there.

With the mask being super comfortable to wear, how effective is it? Well, I mentioned earlier that it is a like a blackout curtain for your eyes, and it really is. I found that once the wire for the nose is adjusted, they was no light leakage and I was in total darkness – even during the day with the curtains open! The mask does an excellent job of blocking out any light.

Sleep Eye Mask

Overall, I am very impressed with the Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask. It is super soft and extremely comfortable to wear and sleep in. It covers the eyes fantastically well and the wings and durable wired nose guard stops any light leakage.

This is a perfect sleep eye mask for anybody that requires total darkness at night, people who work shifts and need to sleep during the day or for taking a quick nap as a passenger on train, plane and car journeys. And, for me, I have another use. I suffer from really bad migraine headaches and at their worst I need to be in darkness and this eye mask will help me achieve that wherever I am.

The Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask also comes with a very handy little travel pouch so that the eye mask can be folded and placed within the pouch, protecting it from dirt and damage.

Available in grey or black, with a retail price of £6.99 it is an absolute bargain.

I can highly recommend the Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask, whether for use every night or occasional use, it is something that should be in every bedside drawer. An excellent sleep aid (and much cheaper than having to buy blackout curtains).
