While I was on my vacation, I was contacted by a representative for Silksleep to do a review of one of their silk products. To be completely honest, at first I was not familiar with Silksleep or their products. After doing a little more research, I found out they are a UK based company that ships worldwide and specializes in luxurious silk linens.
I told the representative I was more of a ‘cotton sheet person’ and that I wanted to be honest to my readers about what I preferred. (whats the point in doing a product review if I’m not going to be honest, right?) He suggested I try one of their Silk Eye Masks and offered to send me one for free, what did I have to loose?
When I got back from our vacation, my package from Silksleep was in the mail. My silk eye mask came in a little silk pouch, just a nice touch..us girls love these details.
The first thing I noticed when checking out my mask was the soft texture. These masks, along with the other silk products by Silksleep are made from 100% pure fiber mulberry silk which is the softest, highest quality silk available.
When it came time to put it on, I was SHOCKED at how much light it really blocked. It was total darkness in a completely lit room as it was daytime. I am one of those people who is really bothered by light when trying to sleep. Blinking electronics, digital clocks, even light peaking through the bottom crack of a door can be bothersome and when we travel I actually lay shirts and towels over anything with a light in a room.
The mask also felt very comfortable to wear. The strap was secure but not in the slightest bit tight as there nothing soothing about wearing something tight across your face at night. I didn’t realize it until I was wearing it that the mask that is also contained these little soft pouches that sit right under your eyes. (probably what helped to block out all that night) They felt like little soft pillows under my eyes.
I’ve never been a “sleep mask” kind of person before so despite its comfort and functionality, I was still skeptical I would enjoy a night’s sleep with it on. I gave it a shot…
It was wonderful!!! Truly! I wasn’t bothered by John watching his tv before bed, or the light from my son’s monitor. I never had to adjust the straps in the middle of the night and wasn’t once tempted to remove it.
Silksleep really impressed me with their quality of product. I am so pleased with my new mask and have been checking out their website interested in other products, such as their silk blankets. Silksleep offers a number of other luxurious products including but not limited to linens, duvets, even pillows. I highly recommend them and am thankful for an opportunity to review their product.
