I work late at night yet still like to be up in the mornings to make breakfast, spend time with the baby and see the girls off to school (with all the FBI-level crisis negotiating skills that sometimes takes!). So my sleeping schedule is definitely not normal. Any time I do get to myself for restful bliss is extremely precious.
I’m also easily distracted from sleep, though. The sun glittering through my window is like a siren call, reminding me of neglected garden plants and yardwork and and and! Until my mind starts racing and trying to sleep becomes a useless endeavor.
That’s where my new love of sleep masks comes in. I honestly used to think they were sort of ridiculous and suffocating, but I’ve come to see just how useful they really are. So now of course I must find the perfect one. This week I’ve been trying out the The Dreamer Luxury Sleep Mask from Dream Essentials.
The outer covering is a silky blue fabric, while the inside is a softer 100% cotton that feels like your favorite t-shirt. It secures onto your head with a wide Comfort Snug headband that really is much more comfy than the usual thin elastic strap (and doesn’t get tangled in your hair the way those thin straps often do). For me, it did a great job of blocking out all light and I found it super soft against my skin. I love that both the inner fabric and padding are pure cotton, which makes the mask breathable instead of hot and sweaty.
The Dreamer also came with a few fun extras. First we have a small vial of Sleep Serum, which contains a mixture of essential oils of Lavender, Rose and Roman Chamomile in a Jojoba base. You just apply a few dabs behind your ears, on your temples and at the back of your neck right before sleeping. I am not sure if this helped me sleep better but it smells nice and soothing.
The other useful extra was these Ear Plugs. They’re made of super-soft foam that conforms to your ear canal and they block out noise up to 32 decibels. With this whole kit, I feel fully armed and ready to take on any sleep situation!
