Bucky 40 Blinks Ultralight Sleep Mask Review



Buy at Amazon

Review:

I’ve been trying to take more naps during the day recently thanks to my problems sleeping at night. Unfortunately, I’ve always had problems sleeping when it’s light out, so I decided to experiment with sleep masks to see if they would help. I decided to try the Bucky 40 Blinks Ultralight Sleep Mask because I liked that I could comfortably open my eyes, blink, etc. while wearing it. I don’t wear makeup often enough for it to matter, but it should also reduce smudging and protect lash extensions.

The 40 Blinks Ultralight Sleep Mask does look a little silly – like a bra for your head – but it does a good job of blocking the light and is comfortable to wear. I do suspect the straps might be too thick to be comfortable all night if you sleep on your back (as I do) but I’ve only used it for short naps so far.

My rating: (4 / 5)

I’ve tried several different sleep tracking apps for iPhone, and here are my conclusions.
