A Better Nights Sleep With Spacemasks?

Thursday, May 07, 2020

I have been having trouble sleeping lately, so was browsing through amazon to see if I could find any products that could help. I came across a warming eye mask with a space theme and decided this should be the next thing I try out!

I found a brand called Spacemasks, which make eye masks that heat up when exposed to the air. I have never heard of anything like it before, so was excited to try it out! I was eager to open it but, as soon as you expose it to air, it activates. This means you must be 100% sure you want to use it at the time of opening and have no distractions!

The face mask was comfortable to wear. The fit was a bit off as one size fits all, but once you drift off, it doesn't really matter. There are soft loops that you hook around your ear, similar to that of a face mask. The loops are stretchy, soft and didn't rub while wearing the mask. The part of the mask that is resting on your eyes is almost like cotton wool, so it is very light. I like the space theme on the outside of the mask. 

The warming sensation occurred relatively quickly. It only took a minute or two before it heated. The heat was actually a lot warmer than I thought. It was nice and oddly comforting. I have never experienced a sensation like this before. There is the essence of jasmine inside the mask, which is relaxing and brings a nice scent.

The packet says it should last around 15 minutes and I thought that was on par. I was impressed with how long it did maintain heat. It peaked at around 5 minutes. I thought that it would then cool quickly, but the mask was insulating enough to keep a good temperature. It actually lasted a long time, 30 minutes or so. I was impressed as it means that you could take a nap and it would still be hot by the time you wake up. 

The thing I was most disappointing was that it was a one-use product. At the time of purchase, the mask was £6.99(It is cheaper to purchase the masks from their website, but I didn't know it at the time). This is quite expensive for a single-use facemask, and it is rather polluting. It is a shame it is one-use because it would have been nice to use it again. When I purchase it, I thought it would be similar to a hand warmer where you could "reset" it and use it again. 

I thought this mask was very relaxing, and I would probably use it again. I recommend it, especially if you're having trouble sleeping, but I don't think it should be a daily thing. It is soothing, but I am a bit conscious that you have to throw it away afterwards. Other than that, I really liked this mask, and it is a unique way to help you sleep. 

Have you been having sleeping troubles lately? Have you ever tried a warming facemask? I'd love to know your experience with one or tips on how I can start sleeping better again!

  1. What an interesting concept! I always sleep with an eye mask (I hallucinate when I sleep, and wearing an eye mask helps me from seeing things that aren't there). But I never knew there was such a thing as a self-heating eye mask, nor would I have ever thought of it. Now that I know about it though, I want to try it! It sounds lovely. But you make a good point. It's too bad they're disposable (and pricey). It would make a good gift or you could #treatyoself :) Thanks for sharing! - Briana | https://www.NextDestinationUnknown.com

  4. That sounds so cool! I’ve never heard of it before. I might have to try it myself. I do have rosacea though so I’m not sure if I should use it or not. But I’ll check! Thank you for this!
