As someone who has suffered from migraines in the past, sometimes the best relief is a cool, dark room and a relaxing nap. When that isn't an option, one popular Amazon Canada eye mask may be the next best thing.
The Renpho Eye Mask with Heat has racked up thousands of five-star reviews from customers who say it's "beyond amazing" at providing relief to tired eyes, and even helps relieve headaches and eye pain.
Normally retailing for $100, the mask is currently on sale for $53 in black and white.
How does it work?
While they might look like futuristic goggles, this eye mask aims to reduce eye strain and refresh the skin around your eyes using gentle heat. It provides five heat and pressure modes to relieve tired eyes, puffiness, dryness, sinus pressure and headaches.
Renpho's eye mask has built-in heating pads to provide a comfortable temperature between 104 and 107 degrees Fahrenheit (40 to 42 degrees Celsius). It's also Bluetooth-compatible and comes with built-in speakers and prerecorded sound for enhanced relaxation.
Mask is 'a godsend' for headaches
With a 4.2 star averaging rating from hundreds customer reviews, this Renpho eye mask has quickly become a top choice among Amazon shoppers.
"If you want to relax from a stressful day, you need this," one person wrote.
"The music and massage settings are very nice," added another.
Reviewers say that it's helpful for relieving headaches, as one shopper said that they "really love it for head pain, migraines and trigeminal neuralgia."
'So relaxing and soothing'
"This is a godsend for me! So relaxing and soothing," added another.
Others have said they this device is also helpful "after staring at a screen for a few hours" and leaves their eyes feeling "refreshed after each use."
In addition to heat, this eye mask also gently massages the eye area. Shoppers rave that the combination of heat and massage "are incredible in relieving pressure."
Though shoppers have praised this eye mask for relieving eye pain, others say that it "would be more relaxing if it was quieter." Between the music, vibrations and massage features, some shoppers admit that it can get "annoying" to use.
Is it for you?
This eye mask is perfect for those who spend hours on end working from a laptop or phone, which can cause fatigue for your eyes and mind. It helps to provide a soothing heated sensation around the eyes, plus gentle massage. However, some reviewers found the noise this eye masks to be "annoying" — definitely something to consider if you're sensitive to noise.
