    Just because you’re sleep-deprived, hungover, or suffering from digital eye strain doesn’t mean you have to look like it. No, that doesn’t mean layering on tons of color corrector and concealer. It means strapping on a gel eye mask, and stat.

    Available in three colors, the Optix 55 Gel Eye Mask allows you to unwind in comfort with beads that adapt to the shape of your face.

    The Kimkoo Gel Eye Mask is bead-free and for cooling use only, with nifty eye cutouts so you read (or at least see) while wearing it.

    The Grace & Stella Hot + Cool Bead Eye Mask has a plush material backing so you can de-puff and pamper at the same time.

    While the IMAK Compression Pain Relief Mask isn’t heat-friendly, it’s essentially a cooling pillow that'll bring relief to tired and puffy eyes. It has no eye cutouts, but it's comfortable enough to use as a sleep mask!

    Another cooling-only mask, the MediViz Cold Eye Mask is meant to be frozen to treat dark circles, headaches, and even allergies.
