Think you’ve tried everything to combat restless nights? Well, there might be a quick fix that’s worth a go. Interstellar’s Spacemasks are the game-changing eye masks designed to help you drift off. Quite different from an aeroplane eye mask, these jasmine-scented iterations heat up on contact with air and block out light for a peaceful night’s sleep. Sound good?
What makes it different?
The beauty world is flooded with cooling creams designed to tighten and brighten tired eyes, so a self-heating eye mask that acts like a warm compress is a rare find. Working to ease tension and encourage circulation, these masks aid in calming you down and relaxing your mind.
How exactly does it work?
Oxygen activates the cotton mask almost immediately to gently heat it up so that when pressed onto eyes (and secured with loops behind the ears), you experience a warm, soothing sensation along with the subtle scent of jasmine. The instructions recommend leaving the mask on for 15 minutes, and we defy you to part with it any sooner.
When should you use it?
At the end of a long day. Spacemasks can help alleviate strain on the eyes caused by excessive screen staring, stress and headaches. Trust us, your eyes will thank you for the time to recover.
Who’s using them?
Spacemasks have already amassed wellness fans including yogi Julie Montagu, as well as the Grazia, Tatler and Harper’s Bazaar beauty teams. We also hear the masks are ideal for sleep-deprived mums and can vouch they’re perfect for busy office workers who spend hours in front of a computer. Plus, the individual foil packaging makes Spacemasks great for frequent travellers or those who struggle to sleep away from home.
And the price?
Priced at £15 for a pack of five, this is a true cult product in the making. You heard it here first.
