Having Trouble Sleeping? Try This Sleep Mask!

Hello darlings!

I’m here today with a sort of new topic (not really) and it has changed the way I sleep. If you’re like me and have shared quarters, then you may or may not get enough quality sleep.

I know for me personally shared the living room with my family and our dog, Samson, it’s a long shot at getting a good nights rest (especially when you choose to sleep on the couch).

Reader, meet Bedtime Bliss. Bedtime Bliss, this is Reader.


Since living with my grandparents I have been sleeping in the living room with my family. This has been a feat of itself. Since my brother was born (I was 6 years old), I’ve had my own room and own space. Now I’m forced to share my sleeping space with 3 other people. It’s difficult, it’s a challenge, but it’s what I have to deal with for now.

My family is very talkative at night and they love the lights being on until 3 or 4 in the morning. I hate lights being on and if I could live in the dark 24/7 I definitely would. My bedtime is honestly around 9 or 10pm as I wake up around 7am every day. It’s what my body is used to.

Sharing the sleeping space has prevented me from going to bed and staying sleep. That is, until I went ahead and purchased Bedtime Bliss.


I was skeptical about this sleep mask because I’ve never used one before and I don’t like tight things on my head (which, for a natural black woman is a challenge. My headscarves never stay on and my bonnet gives me headaches quite a bit). I did what I do best and read as much of the comments as I could on this before making the purchase and they were all giving praise to how well this fit and worked for them so, needless to say I made the purchase.

I bought mine directly from Amazon as I have Student Prime and get free 2 day shipping.

My sleep mask actually arrived one day later and early in the morning. I was pleasantly shocked.

The box was very nice and brand new. The packaging is very nice too (unfortunately I don’t have the packaging anymore because honestly this post was created on a whim).

How well does it work?

I’m going to be absolutely honest. It helped me get a deeper nights rest and I barely moved. I slept so good the first night. I immediately fell in love with it. I don’t use the earplugs that come with it because they don’t help me. They quiet the noise but don’t cancel it out so I stick to my music to fall asleep to.


I admit I felt a little silly for wearing them because they aren’t the best looking or cutest sleep mask but they get the job done therefore, I don’t care anymore. I’ve had them since October 27th, and I have no shame in them anymore. I lent them to my mom for a night because she had a migraine. She was out like a light after wearing them for 5 minutes, literally.

If you have any trouble getting and staying asleep I highly recommend these babies! They’re only $12 on Amazon, and if you don’t have Prime, you can sign up for a 30 day trial!

  3. Nice post Brie!! I loved this review… does the mask stay on securely? When I travel I like to have a good sleeping mask with me but sometime the bands are either too tight or to loose causing my cut of circulation lol or falling off of my face lol.

    1. Hi Doris! I know what you mean lol I hate bands that are too tight. The great this about this mask is that you can set how tight you want it. They have velcro stickies on the ends so you can make it the perfect fit for you and yes! They are very secure. They have yet to fall off or even move while I was sleep! 🙂

  4. I might just have to try this!
