10 best eye masks

Treat tired eyes to a luxurious mask, gel or cream to soothe, calm and hydrate your peepers

The delicate eye area can really suffer at this time of year. Late nights, socialising after long sunny days, pollutants and sun exposure can leave their mark.

Eye masks are specially formulated to deliver an extra hit of intensive moisturiser with ingredients that soothe and tighten those puffy, tired peepers.

We tried and tested a range of masks on our screen-weary, sun-shot eyes; from Soap and Glory’s good-value version up to Chantecaille’s luxurious mask that won’t leave you much change from £200, there’s one for every budget.

Verdict:

Skyn Iceland’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels really deliver an instant pepping and cooling hit to tired eyes, ideal for use on mornings after the night before. If your eyes feel gritty and weary after a day at the desk, ten minutes shut eye with Dr Hauschka’s Eye Revive is a really soothing and restorative treat that we all should make some time for.
