TheraPearl Eye Mask was “designed by a renowned doctor” but has more uses than for just those with eye conditions. Used hot or cold, it can help with the following :
- Sore / gritty / dry eyes
- Puffy eyes
- Sinus pain & congestion
- Reduces swelling (ie. after a cosmetic procedure or eyebrow wax)
- Headaches, migraines & tension
Keep it in the freezer, or pop it in the microwave following the instructions on the box (which are also, quite handily, printed on the mask itself). Apply it to your eyes or slide it up to your forehead for up to 20 minutes.
The mask is of course re-usable, but it’s also safe to use; it’s doesn’t leak or drip and it’s non-toxic.
Given the ‘pearls’ inside and the softness to which it squishes down, this moulds and shapes to your eye area in a ‘one size fits all’ way. The adjustable strap allows for a more comfortable fit on your eyes, but other times I just rest it on my forehead. I find this relaxing and soothing to use, and far better than the standard gel eye masks because of its shape, effectiveness, and ability to use it hot and cold. This is a mask that’s made to last and I find it does help to reduce puffiness (thanks to my chronic lack of sleep!), soothe sore eyes and relax the tension from headaches.
