Working on a computer all day and staying out late can leave you with tired eyes. Optrex recently released a Warming Eye Mask, specifically formulated to relieve tired eyes and help you feel more relaxed in just 10 minutes. As I work in front of a computer all day and find that my eyes and head can feel quite tired towards the end of the day, I was really looking forward to trying this out and seeing if it helped – and I’m so glad I did!
The self-heating eye mask begins to work as soon as it’s taken out of its packet. You simply unfold the mask, place it on your eyes and let it work its magic. The mask gets quite warm within the first couple of minutes, and although I found this a bit strange at first I quickly got used to it and found this really soothing. The mask works by releasing a gentle, soothing steam over your eyes to help you de-stress. Whilst the mask does its job I like to listen to my favourite calming apps, however Optrex have also created a playlist of soothing 10-minute soundtracks which you can listen to here, in collaboration with renowned sound technician DJ Ash Sargeant.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I uncovered my eyes for the first time, 10 minutes later. However, I was really surprised to find that my eyes felt so refreshed and ‘awake’. I was so impressed! I have since bought myself the lavender scented eye masks from the same range, which I thought would make a lovely addition to my bedtime routine.
The Optrex Warming Eye Mask (Unscented 2 pack RRP £3.99, 8 pack RRP £9.99) is available at pharmacies nationwide, whereas as soothing lavender is available exclusively at Boots. Visit www.optrex.co.uk for more information.
