Bucky Eye Shades with Ear Plugs Periwinkle -- 1 Eye Pillow
Good eyeshade, but beware of dye transfer
The Bucky shade is a good eyeshade, really blocks light very well. However, the blue dye rubbed off on my pillowcases and sheets. I hand-washed the shades thoroughly, which lessened the effect, and the dye streaks washed out of my sheets. I would recommend washing and air-drying these shades before wearing.

I have tried several brands of eye shades.
This one has some positive aspects: it is large and masks the eyes well, and is also comfortable on the eyes.
However the strap at the back, though sturdy, was too bulky for me and I had to return the shades. I couldn't sleep with that much of a lump at the back of my head where the velcro straps overlap.
Wish eyeshades were made so that the connection is on the side or front intead of back of the head.

Love Bucky Eye Shades
Have been using them for years! Love the padding all around and adjustable strap does not bind. Having a pouch for the ear plugs ensures they stay together and you don't have to look around for where in the world you may have put those plugs!
Also keeps the light out - as in completely.
I've tried other eye shades but will always be a Bucky customer.

Best Mask for Sleeping
I'm addidicted to total darkness for sleeping and have tried a multitude of masks. This is my 3rd Bucky mask--I wore one out (in over 7 years of nightly use) and left one behind in a hotel. With a roll of padding that goes under the eyes and over the bridge of the nose to allow blinking without eyelashes rubbing on the mask, it's comfortable and provides the darkness I need.
