With all the complications of high-stress travel and insane work schedules, sleep sometimes seems to be parceled out in begrudging little doses. So a comfortable sleep mask can be an extremely helpful friend.
But choosing a sleep mask? Why is that so complicated?
Shop the comfort products on the web, and you’ll find a chaotic constellation of variations on the sleep mask. It’s as bewildering as trying to shop for a cell phone.
There are masks with cartoons on them. Masks with assorted nations’ flags on them.
There are masks with integrated noise blockers for the ears. Sexy black satin masks with ruffles to coordinate with provocative lingerie. (We don’t quite understand how this will lead to “sleep.”)
You’ll even read about high-tech masks that are now being developed, including one with programmable configurations of blinking lights designed to stimulate “lucid dreams” —those dreams in which you know you’re dreaming.
All very interesting, for sure. But Bucky’s philosophy on sleep masks is pretty simple, and you can probably guess what it is from the tagline we use with all our products: Comfort for the Whole Planet.
If a sleep mask isn’t comfortable above all else, it’s not going to help you sleep. It’s going to annoy you.
Our 40 Blinks Ultralight Sleep Mask is designed for comfort in every respect. It weighs a mere 2.7 ounces. That’s about the weight of a pair of light cotton socks. But it’s filled with molded foam, so it fits to your face without applying any uncomfortable pressure on the eyes.
Karen, one of our customers, wrote us with a straightforward testimonial to comfort: “I’ve tried them all and only Buckys keep your eyeballs from getting squished.”
Though we major in comfort, we are tuned in with style, so we offer choices. 40 Blinks comes in eleven different colors or patterns We also offer a separate line of eye shades with ear plugs, which coordinate with our Fun Fur Neck Pillow and Utopia Neck Pillow.
Because sleep, we might say, is always in style.
