Bucky 40 Blinks Contoured Eye Mask
This sleep mask was the top performer in our evaluations: Testers loved the contoured design that lets you open your eyes while wearing it. They also said it was easy to put on and take off, and it held up to machine laundering in the Lab without shrinkage or damage. Not to mention, there was barely any light leakage in our evaluations. There are tons of colors and prints to choose from, so this eye mask is primed to be your new favorite accessory.
Mack’s Dreamweaver Contoured Sleep Mask
This second-place sleep mask came in just after Bucky, but it’s a total steal for less than five bucks! It’s also contoured, meaning there’s space around your eyes, and it held up to our Lab’s durability tests. The downside is that it let in a bit more light than some more expensive picks. Still, the price is unbeatable and it comes with a carrying case and ear plugs. Sold!
Best Silk Sleep Mask
Fishers Finery Silk Sleep Mask
It might not block out light entirely, but sleeping on silk feels amazing and can actually help prevent creases in your skin. This mask from Fishers Finery is is made of high-quality fabric that was both strong and moisture-wicking in our tests. It’s also a Good Housekeeping Seal holder (so if it’s damaged or defective within two years, Good Housekeeping will give you a refund). Its matching silk pillowcase was also top-notch in our evaluations and testers swore it was comfy and helped keep them cool.
Best Weighted Sleep Mask
Gravity Weighted Sleep Mask
This mask uses the same concept behind weighted blankets: The pressure calms you down so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. It weighs just one pound, so you feel the pressure without it being too much on your face. We love how the weight is evenly distributed and is made with glass beads, which is more dense than the plastic pellet alternative. It also has a micro-fiber cover that feels plush and cozy against skin.
Best Pillow Sleep Mask
OSTRICHPILLOW Light Travel Pillow
If you plan to nap while traveling, this two-in-one design is both a pillow and a sleep mask — perfect for saving some space in your carry-on luggage. It’s filled with silicone micro-beads and is designed to block out light and sound while giving you a comfy place to rest your head. It might look a bit silly when you wear it (even though it’s nothing compared to the original Ostrich Pillow!), but our testers loved the idea of getting a good snooze on the go.
Best Cooling Sleep Mask
IMAK Compression Mask
Perfect for people who get headaches, overheated, or even puffy eyes, this sleep mask has a built-in ice pack to give you a cool compress. Just leave it in the freezer and take it out when you’re ready to use it. It’s made with small microbeads so it’ll feel squishy (not hard) and will fit to your face to help block out light. Amazon reviewers swear by this eye mask, even saying it helps relieve headaches and soothe puffy eyes!
Best Cotton Sleep Mask
Magovel Cotton Sleep Mask
If you prefer the feel of natural materials, this one’s made with a cotton cover that users say feels super soft. It’s also flexible with an easy-to-shape nose piece and flaps on the side, making it great for side sleepers. On top of that, it has a soft, wide strap that’s easy to adjust so you can find your perfect fit.
Best Foam Sleep Mask
Tempur-Pedic Sleep Mask
This eye mask uses the same foam material as the pressure-relieving Tempur-Pedic mattresses so it’ll mold to your face, giving you both darkness and cushion-like comfort. It also has a velcro strap that’s easy to adjust. The outer material is plush and can be removed so you can wash it separately.
Best Bulk-Buy Sleep Mask
Hicarer 30-Piece Eye Masks
Whether you need disposable sleep masks or a smaller style to keep in your purse, this 30-pack is your best bet for stocking up. You may not love them as much as our other picks, but users still say they feel comfortable and block out a decent amount of light. Bonus: You can also use them as a blindfold for smashing a piñata or a game of pin the tail on the donkey.
