      I have been using a sleep mask to block out light for years. It really helps me to sleep better, since I often keep late hours and like to sleep in when I am dealing with fibromyalgia flare ups, which affect my quality of sleep. I have used several masks and found a few good ones. When I was required to stay overnight unexpectedly at an airport because of a flight cancellation, I did not have a mask with me, and could not find one sold separately, but at one vendor, I did find this kit.

      It consists of a sleep mask, ear plugs, and a lotion. The lotion was a strange addition, but it was supposed to be an aroma therapy lotion to help relax you and put

      you to sleep. I did not know how relaxed I could be trying to sleep in the middle of an airport, with lots of other strangers flopped out on benches trying to sleep too.

      To be honest, I did not expect to sleep much at all, but I wanted the privacy of the mask and perhaps the ear plugs could muffle some of the airport noise. By the time I found an empty spot to try and rest, most of the noise had calmed down. I was not the only one stuck here.

      There were many very unhappy travelers around. I worried about the security of my purse, but I managed to find a way to lay on top of it without too much discomfort. I opened ...

      • the kit and put in the ear plugs.

        They were decent, pretty comfortable. They did help with the noise. The lotion was ok, but I did not think it was a particularly “relaxing” smell.

        I used it anyway, the coolness of the moisture on my skin was the closest thing I was going to get to a shower anyway. The mask was a surprise. When I looked at it, I thought it was rather cheaply made.

        It was very thin plastic, with foam on the inner portion that made enough of a depression that you would be able to open and close your eyes without your lashes touching the mask. This was done quite well. I had several masks at home that were made this way,

        and I preferred that to a mask that fit closely over your eyes.

        When I put it on, although it was slightly bulky, it really did the job of keeping my eyes separate from the mask. It was like a little darkroom. And, despite the cheesy construction, it was pretty darn comfortable.

        Under the circumstances, I did not sleep at all, but that was not because of the mask. I used it later at home and found that it was better than many more expensive masks I have purchased. In fact, it’s become one of my surprise favorites.

        I don’t really expect it to last terribly long, but when it wears out, I would happily pay for another one. Cheap or not, it does the job right.
