The REMedy Sleep Mask is made by BLUblox, who are famous for their blue light blocking glasses.
We were excited to try it out as we don’t have blackout blinds in our apartment, meaning that our bedroom can be pretty bright during the night when we’re supposed to be asleep.
The REMedy promises total darkness for your eyes to help support a better night’s sleep.

BLUblox REMedy Sleep Mask – The Basics
As we have already mentioned, the BLUblox REMedy Sleep Mask is a high quality sleep mask designed for use at night to help block out light that may wake you up.
You probably already know that seeing too much light at night can affect sleep, as our bodies are intimately wired to react to light at different times of the day.
Depending on where you live, light pollution can cause problems. For example, we live in a busy city and if we were to leave our bedroom blinds open, our room would be pretty bright at night because of the artificial lighting in our area.
Things like blackout blinds and sleep masks are designed to counteract the effect of light pollution during the night to help mimic a natural environment and promote better sleep.
The official BLUblox website says that the REMedy is the “most optimal sleep mask in the world” – which is certainly some claim!
It costs $40 / £31 / €36 so it is certainly one of the more premium priced sleep masks out there.
The product description goes on to say that the REMedy provides a solution for blocking 100 per cent of light at night to help you sleep better.
It goes on to say that mask is made from mouldable fabric, and that it provides a 100% light blocking without sacrificing comfort. “Total darkness is guaranteed”.
It is machine washable, features contoured sides, and it is also ultra lightweight.
You may already know that even small amounts of light hitting your eyelids when you’re asleep could affect your time in bed.
The purpose of the REMedy is to block out all light in a comfortable and therefore promote better sleep.
So, it all sounds pretty good to us so far. Now it’s time to start taking a closer look at the REMedy to see what we made of it.
The Look And Feel
The first thing we noticed when unboxing the REMedy Sleep Mask is the luxurious feel it has to it. It’s clearly a high quality product, and is well made.
The mask comes with a nice travel pouch, which is a classy touch. When you think about it, sleep masks should always come with travel pouches as many people use them when they are away from home. This is a box ticked by BLUblox.
The inner part of the mask which touches your face is incredibly soft to the touch, and the strap is fully adjustable with velcro, which means you’ll be able to custom fit it.
One problem we’ve had in the past with the cheaper sleep masks we’ve tried is that the elastic straps they use can be too tight or too loose with no adjustability. The REMedy stands out in this regard.
Next, you’ll notice that the REMedy features two padded sections which cover your eyes. These are designed to provide maximum comfort while blocking out all light.
We do like this feature a lot, and it makes the REMedy stand out in comparison to a lot of other similar sleep masks out there.
As the eye pads are quite bulky, they may be an issue if you sleep on your front of your side. We found that they took a little bit of getting used to, and they were a tad uncomfortable because of the pressure they put on your face if you sleep on your front or side.
If you are a back sleeper, then of course this will not be an issue for you.
That said, the eye pads are adjustable as they are fixed to the mask with velcro, so you could actually remove them and choose not to use them if they do cause issues.
So, now that we’ve covered the basics about how the REMedy looks and feels, it’s time to take a look at how we got on with it.
We were really excited to try out the REMedy Sleep mask for the first time.
As we mentioned above, our bedroom can be quite bright from artificial light from the street, even with our blinds closed.
The first thing we noticed when we put it on for the first time is how efficient it is at blocking light.
We first tried it on with the lights off and found that we couldn’t see anything at all. It was 100% dark. This is where the eye pads really prove their effectiveness.
If you’re not used to wearing an eye mask at night, then it will always take some getting used to.
This was the case for us with the REMedy. The eye pad issue when sleeping on your front can also take some getting use to. If in doubt, you can remove the pads.
Other than that, the REMedy really helped us to get the most out of our sleep. We often wake up in the middle of the night. There is something really natural about waking up and it being pitch black in the middle of the night.
It’s only once you’ve used a sleep mask for a number of nights that you actually realize how bright your bedroom is.
What Are Customers Saying?
The REMedy is a fairly new product and so there is not a great deal of customer feedback available right now.
That said, there is plenty of positive feedback on social media. One review on Facebook came from somebody who rated it five stars and said that it was “very useful” and “recommended!”.
Someone else said that the REMedy “provides a total darkness experience for your eyes for better sleep.”
Overall, the feedback seems to be very positive.
• As mentioned above, the bulky eye pads could be uncomfortable if you sleep on your stomach or front. They can be removed and readjusted, however.
• The REMedy is a premium priced product so it may not fit into everyone’s budget. That being said, you can get a 10% discount by using the coupon code HUMANWINDOW at blublox.com.
Anything Else to Consider?
Just remember that although products like a sleep mask can definitely help to improve sleep, they are not going to do everything on their own.
If you’re serious about improving your sleep, then there are many things you can do and try.
