Three things about me: I value sleep very highly, but I can’t sleep with any amount of light coming through the window, and I’ve never seen The Notebook. (The third fact isn’t relevant to this story; I just thought you should know.)
Back to the first two things. Since I am not someone who can function on less-than-restful sleep and no amount of blackout shade has been able to help, I’ve become something of an eye-mask connoisseur. Cue montage of me rotating through masks that kinda got the job done but always came with some sort of downside. Most were either too loose, too tight, left weird marks in my hair or had some other deal breaker. Then I stumbled on the holy grail: Slip’s silk eye mask.
Like so many now-indispensable parts of my life, I found it on Instagram. But with a hefty $50 price tag, I was hesitant to pull the trigger. Desperate for a life of pitch-black slumbers, though, I caved. And I’m so glad I did.
