MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask Review

I work on my computer Monday to Friday, staring at the screen and writing my drafts. Plus I spend a good amount of that time side-tracking by doing online shopping and going on Facebook (haha). So usually, I don't give myself many breaks off the computer because I have to push myself to finish all my work before my husband comes home from work. By this time, my eyes are so fatigued!
After working for the day, I find it's important to have a bit of time for myself to relax. Otherwise, I would still feel wound up, and I don't feel good so it ruins my evening... or worse still, I can't get a proper sleep later at night. It's important for me to relax my eyes and give them a break.

For relaxing, I like having a 15 minute power nap or just sit and do nothing (except maybe listen to some music).
I have recently started using the MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask for my little wind-down sessions. It's the latest patented Eye Comfort innovation from Japan! It is an innovative self-warming product that helps to relieve and relax eyes in just 10 minutes. It's already a big hit in Japan and Hong Kong... I'm glad it's finally reached the shelves in Singapore!

These eye masks are individually pack which is very convenient. You can use it for relaxation before bedtime, during breaks in between household chores and work, to aid in sleeping while travelling in airplanes, or on trains, etc, and to relax tired eyes after working on computers.  The usage directions are on the MegRhythm website.

It's so soothing, especially the ones with scents like Chamomile and Lavender which are very relaxing aroma therapies. I use the mask for about 10 minutes, well I don't really time it because I just use it until it starts to lose warmth, which is just over 10 minutes or so. Even when I fall asleep and have it on for way longer, it's ok, there's no harsh chemicals or anything.

It actually starts heating up on its own as soon as you open the individual foil package. The MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask warms gradually to a comfortable 40°C the moment you put it on, with heat spreading to gently envelop your eyes. The steam produced from the heat moistens the skin area around the eyes and relieves tired eyes. Look at this demonstration.

Look at the steam the eye mask created within the glass! It's not super hot or anything so you won't actually see the mask smoking or steaming (that would be too hot for your delicate eye area!). This mask warms up to a comfortable and very pleasurable 40  degrees Celsius.
When I use this eye mask, I just lie back and enjoy the soothing sensation of gentle heat around my tired eyes. The warmth helps to moisten and soothe my eyes. Actually, a long time ago, because my eyesight kept worsening, I was advised by my doctor to relax my eyes daily by cupping my palms over my eyes for 10 minutes. The warmth is supposed to relax the eye muscles and relieve eye strain. I did it a few times but never kept it up (hence I'm blind as a bat now *sad face*), because who can be bothered to cup their hands over their eyes for 10 minutes everyday?!

With the eye mask, it does all the work for me and I look forward to wearing it because it's so pampering, it feels great. It has ear loops so I can roll around in bed, no problem. The steam helps to moisten skin and the heat soothes and relaxes my eye muscles. I can feel the stress melt away from my body, even the muscles on my neck and shoulders relax.

I find that after my de-stressing session with this eye mask, I feel very refreshed and my eyes look so much brighter! I use contact lenses everyday, and my eyes do get very tired and tensed easily. The warmth of this eye mask helps to relax them. They don't feel so dry or tired after a long day.
It costs $6.50 for a pack of 5 pieces of mask, you can get it at Guardian or Watsons stores. And it comes in 4 variants. Treat your tired eyes to steam bath of 40°C. Recharge and brighter eyes now!
