To compare, I bought sleep masks from three different manufacturers: Dream Essentials Escape, Bucky, and Lewis N. Clark. I would like to announce the grand prize winner of the Sleep Mask Contest: Dream Essentials Escape. HANDS DOWN.

All three masks keep the light out well. The Dream Essentials Escape eye insets, however, are the feature that make this mask so much better. There is absolutely nothing pressing on your eyes with this mask.

The other two masks have a different design, and they are the same as each other. In both the Bucky and the Lewis N. Clark masks, there is a fold of fabric at the bottom that is supposed to keep the mask off of your eyes, but it really doesn't work that well. Bucky is expensive for the same design as the Lewis N. Clark which, as I recall, was about 1/3 - 1/2 the price of the Bucky. Bucky has a great reputation, but I wasn't that impressed.

If you aren't so fussy, then the other masks are, in my opinion, just o.k. However, if you want a really great mask, then THIS is it.

Thank you, Dream Essentials, for going the extra mile to put out a product that is really worth buying.

I've tried the whole line of Dream Essential sleep masks and this is my favorite for at home use. I love the soft comfortable fabric of this mask. It feels luxurious. The fabric is a pleasure to wear against the skin. I'm a side sleeper and use the mask all night to block morning light. I love the strap system; this is one of the few masks that usually stays on throughout the night. The profile of the mask is also thin which makes it comfortable for all types of sleeper. It's even a great mask to pack in your suitcase for road trips. The Escape has no light leakage unlike some other masks. Best of all it doesn't rest on your eyes. It is a pleasure to use for extended periods. I absolutely love this mask and won't sleep without it.

This was a lot bulkier than I had thought it would be. I am returning it. It would be great if you are a back-sleeper, but I sleep on my side, and it dug into the side of my head.

I have been using the Lewis and Clark sleep mask for the last couple years, which is totally great in terms of comfort and it's ability to create total darkness, but was starting to get a little worn out and it also bleeds a blue color all over face and pillow case when you go to bed with wet hair...the latter is really frustrating, but I have learned to just buy blue pillow cases!

I purchased the Dream Essentials sleep mask a few days ago and was surprised by its rigidity. I think some people must be sensitive to fabric touching their eyes, which makes this product a decent candidate for those folks. I generally sleep with my eyes completely closed and would rather have material touching my eye lids than a sleep mask that doesn't stay in one place and can't shift with the movements of my body as I sleep. The velcro also got stuck in my hair all night because it kept falling down toward my neck, despite how tight I would try to tie it. The rigid material gave me an intense headache if I tried to sleep on my side or even turn my head to the side! You can't sleep on your side with this product because the material digs into the side of the head, which also caused a bit of bulging, leaving open spaces where light could seep in.

If you are a consistent back sleeper this product might work for you. I don't recommend this product for anyone who is a light sleeper, toss and turners, or sensitive to harsh contours of face masks on the skin.

I've been using the Dream Essentials Escape sleeping mask for quite some time now, since January 2011, and now it's August.

What I like most about this sleeping mask is that it is highly durable and well made. I've used two other sleeping masks including the Sweet Dreams countered sleeping mask from Dream Essentials which was good but not as durable or light-blocking as this mask. Durability is key for long term use, and the Escape does just that.

The mask is very large though, and heavy so to say. It is quite a bit of material on the face but does the job well. The convenient adjustable straps are a plus too!

The fabric is high quality and will definitely last you over time. The BEST feature is the contoured shape for the eyes which puts NO pressure on the eyes when you open them at night. Perfect mask for anyone!

I bought this for my mom as a gift. The quality of the item was high. Nice packaging, and includes the carry bag and ear plugs. Well made and will last a long time. I asked my mom for her opinion for the review, and she said to give it three stars and to say it's good for blocking out the light, but is a bit too heavy on the face. Would prefer it to be lighter in weight. She also said it can be uncomfortable when you are lying on your side or stomach. It is not necessarily a bad product - it depends on your sleeping habits/positions and personal preference.

I work 3 nights a week and after almost 6 years, it's still difficult for me to sleep during the day. Other masks that I have tried always let light in and half the time I wake up with it on my forehead. This mask is the most perfect mask I have ever used! I get total darkness without it pressing against my eyelids. The first time I wore it, it was still on my face when I woke up!! I highly recommend this mask!!

I just received this mask a couple weeks ago. While it does block most if not all light -- depending on how I'm sleeping -- I do find it's very warm bordering on hot for my face. That makes it somewhat uncomfortable to sleep in. The adjustable band is great although I do seem to wake up with headaches when using the mask - regardless of the tightness (or lack thereof) of the band. I do LOVE the eye 'holes', what a fabulous feature. I also haven't noticed much shifting and I'm a pretty erratic sleeper going from side to stomach to back and all. Does anyone know what the washing instructions are? None came with my order and I don't want to ruin it accidentally.

I was hoping this would be a decent replacement when my usual mask went missing, but this was just awful . My old mask had nice thick, comfortable padding around the edges to keep light out and hold the mask away from my eyes, and from the pictures, I assumed this design was similar. Wrong. This mask is basically fabric molded over a strangely inflexible foam form. Side sleepers: this thing is stiff enough where that's not really an option, because putting pressure on one of the edges shifts the whole thing away from your face. The nylon fabric texture of the nose flaps was also irritating. Seriously, the only really soft part on the whole thing is the one that doesn't touch your skin: the fuzzy fabric on the front.

In the end, it turned out to be easier to try to sleep in full daylight than to use this mask. Buyer beware!

I bought one of these last year. Actually, I bought three different models of sleep masks at the same time, in order to test them out. I liked this one so much that I am buying the very same model again this year. Why am I buying another one? Because one of my dogs ate the first one! I still have the other two masks of different models, but this one stands out above the others. Even though I was able to buy this mask at half price last year and have to pay full price for it this year, it's worth it!

I am giving this mask 4 stars instead of 5, just because it **is** a bit warm on the face during hot weather. However, all the masks I've tried have the same problem. Despite other reviews on this product, I don't have any problems sleeping on my side with this mask -- and I LOVE the off-the-eye design. Overall, it's a great mask!
