Eye masks aren’t for everyone, but light sleepers, regular travellers and those who like to drift off in complete darkness can come to rely on them as an essential item for sleeping soundly .

Designed to help you delve into a deeper sleep , eye masks have come a long way since their humble beginnings. Now available in a wide range of prints, colours and fabrics, there’s a whole host to choose from to truly let your personality shine through, even when you’re out for the count.

Some eye masks do much more than just block out the light. SnoozeBand has cleverly disguised speakers in its eye mask, so you can sleep soundly with your favourite podcast or playlist playing softly in your ears. Mirari Life cleverly shapes to your features, reducing sleep creases, and the Aromatherapy Associates pick also comes as part of a larger gift set with a candle, sleep mist, and bath oil included, for that extra touch of luxury.

Good House London bamboo silk sleep mask

Good House London bamboo silk sleep mask.png

  • Best : Overall
  • Material : 100 per cent bamboo
  • Fastening : Ruched elastic
  • Size at widest point : 21.5cm x 8cm
  • Added extras : N/A

For those who like to support small businesses, put Good House London on your radar. Since launching in 2020, the bamboo silk accessories label has expanded into offering scrunchies, headbands and, of course, eye masks, as well as a capsule collection of clothing. Made from 100 per cent bamboo, this eye mask is one of the more planet-friendly picks, as well as being hypoallergenic and naturally anti-bacterial, making it a perfect pick for those with sensitive skin and eczema. It’s also made from a vegan alternative to silk, which is a plus for animal-lovers. Our tester loved the oat shade, the softness of this mask and the sponginess between the layers, which helped block out a huge amount of light, making it our best buy.

Desmond & Dempsey men’s eye mask

Desmond & Dempsey men’s eye mask.png

  • Best : Printed eye mask
  • Material : Cotton
  • Size at widest point : 20.5cm x 10.5cm
  • Added extras : Gift box and fabric bag

Desmond & Dempsey is known for its luxury printed pyjamas, but the brand’s eye masks are a great lower-priced product bringing the same level of luxury. Featuring the same prints the brand is famous for, the cotton eye masks are fun, fashionable and highly functional, thanks to the padded eye area, ruched elastic strap and blackout design.

It’s soft and silky on the skin, and although the product name says it’s for men, we’d say all genders would love this option. To sweeten the deal, it comes in a large printed gift box with a fabric bag for storage, adding an extra layer of luxe as part of the £20 price tag.

Drowsy damask rose silk sleep mask

The Drowsy damask rose silk sleep mask.png

  • Best : Silk eye mask
  • Material : 22 momme, pure mulberry silk
  • Fastening : Velcro
  • Size at widest point : 25.5cm x 14cm
  • Added extras : Gift box

Drowsy eye masks are among the most luxurious on the market. Made from pure mulberry silk, they’re sumptuously soft, while the thick padding protects your peepers from all light and is hypoallergenic and breathable. Available in a range of 13 shades, we opted for damask rose, but there’s sure to be something to suit everyone.

The wraparound velcro fastening means it can suit almost every head shape and size, and it doesn’t slip off when tossing and turning. We couldn’t fault this mask on the feel of the fabric, and if you’re looking for a little luxury, we couldn’t recommend it more – it also worked to protect our hair from any band breakage, too, a huge plus for any beauty buffs.

ESPA silk eye mask

ESPA silk eye mask.png

  • Material : 100 per cent silk
  • Size at widest point : 20.5cm x 9.5cm

Made from 100 per cent silk, it felt fabulous on the face, blocked out all light, and the back strap was wider than most of our other options, meaning it held on tight when we were busy tossing and turning. At £40, it is one of our more expensive options, but for a pure-silk mask that’s sure to last an incredibly long time, we think it’s well worth it. It even comes in a great gift box, to seal the deal. Sadly, this eye mask currently out of stock right now, but you can add it to your wishlist to be notified of its return.

Panda London 100 per cent bamboo eye mask

Panda London 100% bamboo eye mask.png

  • Best : For staying in place
  • Fastening : Adjustable elastic

The best part about this eye mask was the adjustable back strap. Similar to a bra strap, it’s incredibly thin yet can be adjusted to fit your head just perfectly, meaning it doesn’t slip off in the night. The fabric is incredibly soft, thick and feels great across the skin. It’s also organic, hypoallergenic and highly breathable, so you can sleep soundly even in the sweltering heat.

It blocks out a huge amount of light with the smallest gaps at the nose, meaning our tester couldn’t see anything even when sitting in a brightly lit room. It also comes in a matching drawstring bag and keepsake box, meaning it can easily be gifted and kept clean.

Aromatherapy Associates moment of tranquil sleep set

Aromatherapy Associates moment of tranquil sleep set.png

  • Best : For gifting
  • Material : Velvet and satin
  • Size at widest point : 17.5cm x 8cm
  • Added extras : Gift pouch with a votive candle, mini bath and shower oil and sleep mist

If you’re looking to give one lucky recipient the gift of good sleep, look no further than the Aromatherapy Associates moment of tranquil sleep set. Worth £100, a lot is included inside this velvet-wrapped set, making it one of the most peaceful presents we’ve spotted.

The eye mask itself is a little smaller than some of our other options, but it did block out just as much light as some of our other favourite finds. The silky fabric on the inside added a nice touch, meaning it felt lovely on the skin and was incredibly gentle on the eye area, but it may slip off if you tend to move around in the night.

Thought Kira Lenzing Ecovero eye mask

Thought Kira lenzing ecovero eye mask.png

  • Best : Sustainable eye mask
  • Material : 100 per cent Lenzing Ecovero
  • Size at widest point : 17cm x 7.5cm
  • Added extras : Gift pouch

Thought is one of the more planet-friendly brands available, stocking everything from socks to dresses and jumpers, and its sleepwear offering is truly lovely. With matching pyjamas, which our tester also tried and loved, this eye mask is the perfect accessory for those who like a fully matching sleep set. Made from Lenzing Ecovero, a viscose fibre made with responsible production processes, it ticks the sustainable box for any eco-warriors and feels sumptuously soft too. Although smaller than some of our other options, it was actually among those that blocked out the most light, although it may slip off if you’re really tossing and turning.

SnoozeBand deluxe sleep mask headphones

Snoozeband deluxe sleep mask headphones.png

  • Best : Eye mask that plays music
  • Material : Polyester blend
  • Size at widest point : 69cm x 11cm
  • Added extras : Built-in headphones, charger and carry pouch

At first, we thought a music-playing eye mask was a bit gimmicky, but the SnoozeBand blew us away. Not only was it one of the most comfortable eye masks in this round-up – providing full blackout and an adjustable strap for any head size – it was also incredibly easy to use, and the music played just perfectly.

The mask itself is a large wraparound style that will fit almost any head shape. Inside are two ultra-thin 4mm speakers at each ear – just be sure to undo the zip and place these exactly where your ears are – that connect to any Bluetooth device, such as a phone or iPad so you can drift off to your favourite playlist, podcast or ebook. The charge lasts for around 15 hours, and it comes with a USB lead to recharge each morning. If you hate to sleep in silence, we can’t recommend this enough, and we’re sure to be taking it as a trusty travel companion too.

Soap & Glory the rest assured sleep mask

Soap & Glory the rest assured sleep mask.png

  • Best : Slogan eye mask
  • Material : 100 per cent polyester
  • Size at widest point : 25.5cm x 8.5cm

Soap & Glory is a go-to for cheeky designs and sassy slogans, and this eye mask is no exception. Made from polyester, it has a silky feel that feels lovely and smooth against the skin, while the extra-long shape wraps around the head and blocks out almost all of the light. It has an adjustable head strap, which means it stays put perfectly throughout the night, and the pink colour picked up our spirits just a touch. Of course, it wasn’t quite as soft as some of our real silk options, but for the price, we can’t complain.

Hush Osuna eye mask

Hush Osuna eye mask.png

  • Best : For larger heads
  • Material : 100 per cent cotton
  • Size at widest point : 19.5cm x 9.5cm

The star print on this eye mask is incredibly sweet, and our tester fell in love with the design. But it has been named best for large heads for a reason, as the ruched elastic band was the largest of all of our options, meaning it will slip off anyone with petite proportions. For those with larger heads, though, you’re in luck, as this shouldn’t be too tight for you to sleep soundly. Made from 100 per cent cotton, it is incredibly soft against the skin, and there are even matching pyjamas, too, meaning you can cop the full set and sleep in style.

Mirari Life Grace silk velvet eye mask

Mirari Life Grace silk velvet eye mask.png

  • Best : Luxury eye mask
  • Material : 18 per cent silk, 82 per cent viscose
  • Size at widest point : 21cm x 9cm
  • Added extras : Luxury gift box

For those who like the little luxuries in life, the Mirari Life Grace silk velvet eye mask is for you. The presentation is second to none, coming with all the bells and whistles of an expensive gift: tissue paper and a beautiful presentation box. Made from a silk velvet blend, it was the thickest eye mask in this round-up, meaning it gave a complete blackout effect, so even the most light-sensitive sleepers can drift off with ease. The fabric also shapes to your features, helping to reduce sleep creases and preserving your skincare routine, which is bound to be just as boujee if this is the mask grabbing your attention. It certainly elevated our tester’s night routine, and if you fancy splashing the cash, we won’t be stopping you, although, there are, of course, many other options to suit every budget.

The verdict: Eye masks

All of these eye masks were exceptional in their own way, but the ESPA silk eye mask did just nick the top spot, thanks to its silky softness and price point. But, if you are looking to splash the cash, the Drowsy damask rose silk sleep mask really is what dreams are made of.

For those who like to sleep to the sound of music, the SnoozeBand deluxe sleep mask headphones really wowed our tester, and if you are looking for a gorgeous gift, the Aromatherapy Associates moment of tranquil sleep set should do the trick.

Of course, we love a bargain buy here at IndyBest, and both the Lush dreamy eye mask and Soap & Glory’s the rest assured sleep mask served as the perfect lower-cost eye mask picks. Although, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed with any of these eye mask options. Sweet dreams.

The best eye masks to treat yourself to

Get some good quality shut-eye with these expert-tested masks

best eye masks

There are many different approaches to snoozing, and what works best for you could look completely different for the next person. But what we can collectively agree on is that sometimes we need a little help drifting off, whether it’s reducing screen time, listening to white noise, using a weighted blanket or investing in a high-quality mattress and pillow.

Another trusty sleep accessory comes in the form of an eye mask, which can help reduce light creeping in during early sunrises or ever-so considerate early-risers.

The best eye masks aren’t just for looking glamorous à la Holly Golightly — they can also help you fall into a deep, uninterrupted sleep by blocking out light and external distractions like your phone. Some smart masks go even further and include fancy features such as bedtime playlists for those who prefer to listen to music while snoozing or want to reduce anxiety at nighttime.

There are plenty to choose from, so the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute set out to test the market-leaders. See below for a quick glance at our winners and read on for our full reviews...

The b enefits of wearing an eye mask.

If you thought eye masks were just there to make things feel more luxurious, think again.

Theresa Schnorbach, Psychologist and Sleep Scientist at Emma Sleep says eye masks are crucial for blocking out light. “Exposure to light, especially in the evening or when it's time to sleep, can disrupt your internal clock and make it challenging to drift off,” she explains. “Eye masks create a controlled, dark environment that helps align your internal clock with your sleep schedule.”

Wearing one every night also encourages a consistent routine, Schnorbach adds, creating a familiar sleep environment and more stable sleep patterns.

And we all know the many benefits of enjoying a good night’s rest on the regular, from improved memory and alertness the next day to better recovery from exercise and even clearer skin.

How to choose an eye mask

When buying an eye mask, Schnorbach says that comfort and fit are the most important factors to consider — but otherwise it really comes down to your own needs and preferences.

Wrap-around masks work best for full coverage, for example, while designs with built-in headphones are good for those who prefer some noise to help them sleep. There are even some weighted and heated designs on our list, which are helpful for people prone to tension headaches and anxiety.

When looking for the right material, silk and polyester are popular choices. Silk is breathable, has temperature-regulating properties and provides a smooth surface for skin and hair, but is usually on the pricier side. Polyester is lightweight, durable and tends to be more affordable, but it’s also more likely to absorb skincare products.

How we test

The concept of a sleep test is always a funny one – no, we didn’t watch over our testers from behind a double-sided mirror and take notes as they slept. Instead, we sent the eye masks out to panel of testers who scored them on how easy they were to use (bearing in mind additional functionality), whether they felt secure and if they were comfortable and adjustable. Washing and cleaning instructions were also assessed.

Performance was rated based on whether they efficiently blocked out the light, if they were comfortable to wear for long periods without slipping off or leaving marks, whether eyes felt more rested after use and whether they improved people’s sleep overall.

You’ll find our winning masks below all proudly displaying the GHI Approved logo. We’ve also included some picks from our shopping editor so you have as much choice as possible.

Score: 92/100

If you need help to wind down before you go to sleep, whether you prefer a massage, listening to crashing waves or white noise, then you need to take Bob and Brad to bed with you. No, not two men, but rather the mask they developed and modestly named after themselves. The two physical therapists designed this smart pre-sleep mask with a built-in heated eye massager that targets pressure points in the head and increases blood circulation, to alleviate eye strain or migraines.

Its purpose is to get you relaxed and ready to sleep. It has five different massage modes and intensities, as well as in-built optional white noise, which can help to reduce anxiety. But if you prefer to relax to the sweet sounds of Metallica, you can also connect to your own music via Bluetooth. It went down a treat with our testers. One “adored” how it was “gentle on the eyes and yet effective”. It left another feeling “refreshed every time” they wore it, and because it’s foldable, it’s also easy to take with you on your travels, to work, or even on the daily commute (this wouldn’t be the most outrageous thing spotted on the Tube, we’re sure). “The best sleep mask I’ve ever used,” said one satisfied tester. Not so bad, Bob and Brad.

Score: 88/100

Coming in 17 different shades of silk, from a deep ‘Midnight Blue’, to an opulent ‘L’Amour Gold’, these eye masks from Drowsy really put the beauty in sleep. They’re made from mulberry silk, said to be the softest fabric in the world, so they feel good and protect your skin and hair from friction and damage caused by pillows and bedsheets. In other words, this mask won’t leave any sleep marks on your skin or kinks in your hair, so you’ll wake up feeling and looking fresh.

Though light and delicate, the padded silk is 100% light-blocking – a great plus as the days start to get lighter earlier. Likened to a “giant, comforting, cooling pillow for the eyes”, we’re not sure what else you’d want from a sleep mask. It comes in a beautifully wrapped box with one tester praising the “simple and clean design that screamed luxury.” It’s a quality product, so we think the investment is worth it. To keep the delicate silk intact, when the time comes, we would recommend hand washing in warm water and leaving out to dry.

You can even get a limited-edition Breakfast at Tiffany-esque version.

Made from 100% eucalyptus silk, this eye mask is another super-soft and cooling option to help rest your tired eyes. The fabric impressed our panel members with its soft, gentle feel, and didn’t leave behind any creases on skin.

Prone to getting hot during the night? The light material has effective cooling properties that won’t further add to the fluster. It’s also hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested, which is great for those with sensitive skin.

Did we mention it’s plant-based, too?

Score: 82/100

Fitness brand Whoop recognises the importance of sleep when it comes to recovery, which is why it developed its blackout eye mask, which claims to increase the REM stage of sleep. Why is that good? Because REM stage is the deep sleep cycle (and the stage when we’re most likely to dream), with studies showing its importance for brain development and even emotional processing.

This mask blocks out light to deliver high quality sleep, with testers confirming no light gets through. It has a slightly different design to traditional masks, as it doesn’t sit flat against the face – instead, raised edges ensure it sits just above the eyes.

Our panel liked this, with one tester saying it provided “space to open and close eyes without my eyelashes brushing against the fabric.” The adjustable strap also came in handy for getting a comfortable fit.

Score: 76/100

Helping us achieve great sleep quality is at the heart of Tempur’s mission, and now you can match your eye mask to your mattress and pillow for a night of uninterrupted and comfortable slumber, thanks to this comfy eye mask.

Developed with the same pressure-relieving material as the brand's mattress, it’s made up of viscoelastic cells (think memory foam) that mould to the shape of your face for ultimate comfort.

Multiple testers praised its ability to block out the light – “extremely effective” and “completely eliminates light disturbances from my sleep” were just a couple of the comments we got back. Another tester thought it was a great option for travelling, so slip this into your hand luggage for a restful flight.

Score: 72/100

“Beautifully made, not a stitch out of place”, was how one of our panel members described this 100% silk mask from The White Company. It’s a simple and classy option, which is what we’ve come to expect from the brand. Made from luxurious 19 momme silk (which is the measurement of the weight), this mask is gentle on the eyes where the skin is thinner and more susceptible to developing fine lines.

The elasticated strap is great for keeping the mask in place, though some testers wished it was adjustable to give a more personalised fit. Pair with the Silk Piped Pyjama Set for a night of ultimate comfort (and style).

Shopping editor's picks

double line break

Kitsch’s weighted eye mask is filled with microbeads, which help to create gentle pressure to ease headaches and anxiety.

The extra pressure does initially feel quite strange — it was surprisingly heavy — but we soon got used to it and fell asleep quickly, with the weight providing a comforting feel. The beads were evenly distributed and didn’t shift when you turned onto your side, and it effectively blocked out light.

The mask is also infused with lavender which, although subtle, added to the relaxing, spa-like feel.

This Bluetooth eye mask pairs with your phone and plays music through built-in headphones, so you can drift off to your favourite playlist without having to lie uncomfortably on your AirPods .

The wrap-around design effectively blocks out light and its 10+ hour battery life lasts through the night. The sound quality is as good as regular headphones, and a control panel at the front of the mask allows you to easily increase or decrease volume in the dark.

It comes with a charging cable, earplugs and a storage bag for safe keeping.

This clever self-heating design helps to encourage circulation and ease tension, giving tired eyes a well-earned break.

The heat lasts for around 15 minutes, giving you enough time to enjoy it before drifting off. The mask also provides full blackout, and its loop straps meant it stayed put throughout the night.

Note that Spacemasks are single use only, but the box and foil wrapping can be recycled.

Ideal for those with sensitive skin or allergies, Ethical Bedding’s sleep mask is made from eucalyptus silk which is naturally resistant to dust, mites and mould.

It looks and feels more expensive than its price point, with hidden seams and a lustrous shine. The mask is large enough to cover your eyes and the surrounding area, with no light coming through. But it did slip on occasion, possibly due to the slightly loose elasticised strap, so it’s probably a better option for people with wider heads.

An added extra, it comes in a matching storage pouch, which makes it easy to pack for holidays or tuck away in a drawer when not in use.

Dusk Silk Gift Set

Dusk Silk Gift Set

Dusk’s eye mask, scrunchie, and pillowcase set, crafted from top-quality 22 momme silk, creates a full, luxurious bedtime set-up.

This mask feels gentle on the skin, provides full coverage around the eyes and generally stays on all night. It’s slightly cushioned for a little extra comfort, and the ivory white hue is easy to match with your pyjamas of choice.

I’m a big fan of Panda products, they use naturally sustainable bamboo which is incredibly soft while also being environmentally friendly, so it’s good on your face and good for the planet. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial which makes it very good for your skin and is also climate-controlled so you don’t get all hot and sweaty around your eyes.

The pure silk filling makes it extremely gentle on your skin because of it’s soft and gentle feel. And you get all that luxury but it’s not even the most expensive eye mask on the list.

All round a fantastic silk sleep mask and my top choice of the best eye mask for sleeping and wrinkles.

2. Best For Long Term Use – Sleep Master Eye Mask

Sleep Master Eye Mask

  • Complete Darkness for Most People
  • Adjustable Strap
  • Comfortable Design
  • Soft Material
  • Can keep earplugs in place
  • Hand Washable
  • Free earplugs
  • Isn’t cupped to keep off eyes

The Sleep master has long been held as the best sleep mask in the USA and I think it’s about time we here in the UK joined them. Its awesome design ensures no light gets in as the material goes quite far down past your nose and the material stays thick far around the back of the head.

The description suggests that the mask itself blocks out sound but this isn’t the case. It is the free earplugs that block out sound and the thicker band keeps earplugs in place allowing for complete darkness and silence. This makes for a good night’s sleep if your neighbours are as noisy as mine. The sturdy velcro straps allow you to keep adjusting until you find your perfect fit.

It isn’t shaped to keep pressure off your eyes but this helps keep more lights out. And if you find that there’s too much pressure on your eyes then you can simply loosen the strap.

3. Best For Keeping Off Eyes – Bedtime Bliss Sleeping Mask Review

Bedtime Bliss Eye Mask

  • Cupped to keep pressure off eyes
  • Free earplugs and travel case
  • Good for Men and Women
  • Perfect For Traveling
  • Lets in some light around nose
  • Not Suitable For Long Term Use

The bedtime bliss sleep mask is comfortable to wear and keeps out light. What more could you want? It’s got a nice soft feel to it and a comfortable strap that’s adjustable with velcro so you can keep it at the size you need.

It’s also fitted around the nose which enhances the comfort and keeps out more light. Some people still experience some light leakage around the nose because everyone’s face is a different shape. But this is part of it being cupped for complete blockage you need one that touches your eyes.

It does have quite a flimsy make to it so if you use it every night you’ll get a few months out of it before you need to replace it. But it is cheap and comes with a handy travel pouch so if you’re off travelling you’ll get some good use out of it.

4. Best Travel Eye Mask – Gritin Memory Foam Eye Mask

Gritin Eye Mask For Sleeping

  • Luxuriously Mulberry Silk
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Very effective light blocking
  • Adjustable Headband
  • Let’s in a little light around nose

This is a great choice for sleeping on the go because it comes with a handy little pouch you can store it in. It’s also got a soft and breathable mulberry silk cover that stops you getting sweaty around your eyes.

The elastic strap is then easily adjusted so you can find the right balance of light blockage and pressure on the eyes. It’s put together quite well so it should last a good while even with repeated use. The fact it’s a silk mask is also great given how sensitive the skin on your face is.

A high-quality silk eye mask that’s ideal for taking travelling, 99% darkness and big enough to give you complete eye cover.

5. Best Bedtime Sleep Mask – Plemo Sleep Mask

Plemo Sleep Mask

  • Comfortable foam design
  • Extra material around nose to block light
  • Massages under eye for Relaxation
  • No pressure on your eyes
  • Not good for very bright situations

This is not the ideal mask to use outside on a sunny day as it can let in some light through the front. But if you’re using it in your bedroom with the curtains shut then you’ll get on fine. The foam design is comfortable on the face and the extra piece around the nose stops excess light leaking in while massaging your sinuses.

The design is good with it being slightly convex to keep the pressure off stopping puffy eyes and letting you sleep comfortably. The headband straps are then elasticated and velcro for maximum comfort stability and adjustability.

Comfortable whether you’re a side sleeper or a back sleeper but front sleepers won’t get on great with this particular sleep eye mask, you’ll want a thinner one if that’s you.

ADVANTAGES OF AN EYE MASK

Apart from the reasons I shared above, eye masks are great for basically everyone. The only ones who wouldn’t benefit are those who have hurt the sides of her head and so can’t touch it with anything. For you unfortunate few I’m afraid you’re going to have to fashion your own blackout device. The rest of you, however, can keep reading.

CHEAPER THAN BLACKOUT BLINDS

For those at home, blackout blinds are the ideal. But the cost is sometimes 100x more than getting a simple eye mask to help you sleep. So an eye mask is the way to go in my opinion!

Eye masks are great for travelling as the simulated darkness helps keep unwanted light out as you travel across different time zones, night or day outside you can still shut the world out and get some much-needed shut-eye.

SHIFT WORKERS

The most commonly plagued by the daylight are shift workers. Having to come home and go to bed while the sun is high in the sky can be a challenge, an eye mask helps simulate the night so you can sleep soundly through the day.

SLEEP WHILE YOUR PARTNER IS UP

It’s hard being out of sync with your partner when you share a bed. If they want to spend an extra hour reading and you spend an extra hour tossing and turning it can be tuff. Slip an eye mask on and you’re sorted. Even just wear it until you feel them turning off the light so you can take it off again having gained an extra hour of beauty sleep.

HOW LIGHT AFFECTS SLEEP

If you go to bed after being stimulated by the light for too long it’s difficult to fall asleep. Everyone’s done it where they stare intently at the computer for hours and then try and get into bed and turn the light off only to be left with eyelids like magnets that just won’t go together.

This is because of how light affects our circadian rhythms and melatonin production. Melatonin is the hormone that travels around the body and tells it it’s tired and time to go to sleep. This alongside our body temperature dropping is what allows us to fall asleep easily. The part of the brain that tells the melatonin to get to work is triggered by darkness, so the more light coming in your eyes the less melatonin is produced and so it becomes increasingly difficult to fall asleep.

So even if your eyes are shut but they can sense the light outside they start telling your body to shut down the melatonin, it’s time to wake up. Enter the eye mask. Get yourself a blackout eye mask and this is no longer a problem. The light is gone, your brain knows what to do, and you can fall asleep.

IS IT HARDER TO WAKE UP BECAUSE OF AN EYE MASK?

Unfortunately, it is, light tells the body to stop producing melatonin so you can wake up. It does this gradually as it gets lighter outside so you can wake up properly. With an eye mask that’s completely blacked out, this doesn’t happen.

But, it’s easier to wake up after having gotten a good sleep with an eye mask than it is to have tossed and turned and only managed to squeeze a couple of hours out. The key is to allow yourself some extra time in the morning, take your mask off when the alarm sounds and then lie for a little while embracing the light and waking up.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN EYE MASK

Eye masks are pretty simple by design but there are a couple of things it’s good to look out for:

DOES IT COMPLETELY BLACKOUT THE LIGHT

This is partly personal preference, whether you want complete darkness or if you’re OK having a little light coming through the corners. If total darkness is what you’re after then make sure it has some sort of extra material around the nose since that’s where light can still creep in. Especially so if your feet face a window. Nothing worse than the sun streaming in straight through the gap and into your eyes.

It’s important to note though that it is almost impossible to have 100% darkness without getting one custom made for your face.

DOES IT PRESS AGAINST THE EYE

Again this comes down to comfort and preference but I know I don’t like a sleep mask that you can feel against your eye. It’s far comfier to have one that’s slightly rounded to keep your eyes away from the mask, like the Panda, it has a nice comfortable fit.

ADJUSTABLE STRAP

Finally, you want an adjustable strap that keeps it on your head. Too tight and you’ll be far too aware of it all night long while to loose and it’ll slip off. Everyone’s head is a different size so it’s important to get an adjustable strap that you can customise to your own needs.

A sleep mask is a perfect accessory for travelers who appreciate a little peace and quiet, wherever they may be.

Inexpensive, easy to carry with you, and useful in a wide range of different circumstances, an eye or sleep mask can help shut the world out while you catch some z’s. Not just for sleeping, this travel accessory can help reduce stress levels or even ease away a headache.

Eye masks don’t just help you to nod off to sleep — they also improve the quality of your sleep. Here are some great reasons to keep your eye mask with you at all times:

  • Fall Asleep Quickly — Scientists believe that complete darkness boosts your body’s melatonin level, which helps you to doze off faster.
  • Drop Off Anywhere — Long car rides, airplanes, trains, buses, and even in a city center hotel room — you can beat fatigue by falling asleep virtually anywhere.
  • Beat the Jet Lag —  Combat jet lag by being able to sleep in any time zone. Your sleep mask can help you to sleep at the right times to beat the dreaded jet lag.

Bottom Line: When you’re on the move, being able to rest your mind and your body can make your journey more enjoyable and help you feel fresher when you get there. A sleep mask will help you greatly in this endeavor. 

Eye Mask

Shape and Fit

Eye masks are designed to contour perfectly to your face. When you’re looking for the right eye mask for you, seek out ones with molded eye pockets to keep the fabric from sitting directly on your eyelids, which can be uncomfortable.

Eye mask shape and fit

You should also ensure that the mask itself is wide and long enough to cover your eyes completely. If the light still creeps in on the side, it will hit your peripheral vision and make it harder to go to sleep.

Other design touches, like contoured shaping around the bridge of the nose and Velcro straps that allow you to wear the mask without messing up your hair, all make a difference to how much you fall in love with your newest travel accessory.

Fabric and Material

Eye mask material

Your eye mask needs to be thick enough to keep the light out, yet soft and light enough to not put any pressure on your eyelids.

A mask that offers a bit of padding on the sides and around the edges will provide superior comfort. Because your eye mask is likely to be heavily used on your travels, it would also be advantageous to grab one in a material that can stand up to regular washing.

Bottom Line: Silk, cotton, polyester, and even satin are all popular choices for sleep masks, but be sure to check the quality of the seams and washing instructions before you buy.

If a simple sleep mask doesn’t satisfy your needs, try something a little bit extra. Sleep masks can be found with plenty of additional features to help you sleep soundly, wherever you may be. Some come complete with matching earplugs, for complete sensory deprivation, while others offer collagen eye patches to help you awaken looking refreshed and free from puffy eyes and wrinkles.

Consider buying a travel neck pillow to complete your sleep-well-anywhere package.

Hot Tip: If you’re looking to wear your mask for stress or pain relief, you can purchase masks with integrated lavender to keep you calm or cooling patches to help relieve aching heads. You can also find them in designer fabrics, with matching carry cases or even sleepwear, if the look is what you’re all about.

How to Choose an Eye Mask for Sleeping in the UK

  • For Front or Side Sleepers Choose a Lightweight Traditional Mask
  • Masks Made From Natural Materials are Best for Those With Sensitive Skin
  • Look for Adjustable Straps for a Secure Fit

Decide on a Style, Based on How and Where You Sleep

If you tend to sleep on your front or side, opt for a traditional mask that's lightweight and flexible, day nappers, makeup wearers and back sleepers should go for a mask with eye cavities.

Another common design you will come across features moulded cavities that stop the mask from touching your eyes. Some people find the lack of pressure and contact less irritating, and as they allow for opening of the eyes they will better give the illusion of a dark room. Those catching a power nap whilst wearing makeup will also appreciate this variety as it will prevent smudging.

Consider a Therapeutic Mask to Help With Relaxation, Puffy Eyes, Congestion and Headaches

Pick a material that’s breathable, durable and won't irritate your skin, select hypoallergenic silk or breathable cotton if you have sensitive skin, seek out synthetic materials like polyester or memory foam for a comfortable yet durable mask, ensure the best fit and minimal movement while sleeping by checking if the mask has contours or adjustable straps, for a customised fit that won't slip, choose a contoured or wraparound design, try adjustable velcro or stretchy elastic straps for a more secure fit, @media (min-width: 768px){.css-hxsfov{line-height:100%;}}.css-hxsfov span{font-size:10px;}@media (min-width: 768px){.css-hxsfov span{font-size:16px;}} 10 best eye masks for sleeping in the uk, .css-olfg9l{display:block;font-size:14px;color:#999999;line-height:125%;}@media (min-width: 768px){.css-olfg9l{font-size:12px;}} gritin .css-ucqgk6{display:block;font-size:18px;line-height:125%;}@media (min-width: 768px){.css-ucqgk6{font-size:18px;}} ultra soft silk eye mask.

Travel + Leisure / Kristin Kempa

Getting enough shut-eye isn't always easy when traveling — and even when the opportunity arises, falling asleep can be a challenge. But sometimes, a little darkness is all it takes to start dozing off. Whether you're jet-lagged, on an international flight, or need to catch some Zs during daylight hours for any reason, a sleep mask might help.

"I love having one any time I'm adjusting since, sometimes, the sunlight will interrupt that valuable readjustment time while you're visiting another country," says travel expert Amy West.

An eye mask should fit well (not too tight or too loose), be breathable, and feel comfortable enough to wear for several hours. From smooth, skin-friendly silk and compact, packable options to blackout, weighted, and contoured designs, we found the best sleep masks for every trip, occasion, and preference.

Best Overall

Slip lovely lashes contour sleep mask.

With cutouts to prevent smooshed lashes and fine silk that's ultra-gentle against the skin, this mask is made for beauty sleep.

It's not supposed to be machine washed or tumble dried.

Slip eye masks are wildly popular — and for good reason. While we like the original version, the brand's Contour Sleep Mask steps it up a notch. As the name suggests, it has contoured cutouts where your eyes go. The idea is that it won't mess up your eyelashes (whether mascara-coated or extensions). But beyond that benefit, some folks simply don't like the feeling of something right up against their eyes, and the design remedies this issue.

This sleep mask features high-grade, long-fiber mulberry silk wrapped around plush foam padding. The silk has been third-party tested and shown to minimize friction against the skin while allowing skincare products to stay on your face rather than being absorbed by the fabric. In other words, it's made with beauty sleep in mind.

Just a heads up, you'll want to wash your mask by hand and let it air dry. This will help the silk maintain its softness, shine, and slip.

The Details: One size | 22-momme long-fiber 6A grade mulberry silk, foam | Hand wash, air dry

Best Budget

Mavogel sleep eye mask.

This affordable mask is designed to optimize light blockage while keeping you comfortable in multiple sleeping positions.

It only comes in one size, but you can adjust the nose to help it fit your face better.

On a budget? Consider the Mavogel Sleep Mask. With soft foam layers and a curved shape that eliminates gaps around the nose and temples, it's designed to block as much light as possible.

Though it's slightly thick, this mask isn't uncomfortably stiff, and you can wear it in multiple sleeping positions. It flexes around the shape of your face while the cotton exterior provides breathability. Although it only comes in one size, the adjustable strap offers a custom fit.

The Details: One size | Cotton, foam, non-woven fabric | Hand wash

Quince Mulberry Silk Beauty Sleep Mask

Quince's sleep mask is made of durable silk with excellent opacity, so you can count on it to block light while you doze.

It's machine washable, but the brand says hand washing with cold water is ideal.

Quince makes a great silk option. This sleep mask is made of 22-momme mulberry silk. Momme is the weight measurement for silk, and 22-momme tends to be more durable and opaque than lighter weaves so you can count on it to block light while you sleep.

There are 12 colors available, including neutrals, pastels, and trendy hues. This mask is technically machine washable, though Quince says washing it by hand with cold water is actually the best way to clean it.

The Details: One size | 22-momme mulberry silk, polyester | Machine wash or hand wash, line dry

Kitsch The Pillow Eye Mask

The Pillow Eye Mask helps minimize friction on your skin and hair to prevent you from waking up with creases or frizz.

It's likely not as breathable as silk options, and hand washing is recommended.

This eye mask from Kitsch features plush padding to gently cushion your eyes and keep light out without adding weight. The silky-smooth satin exterior helps reduce friction against the hair and skin and prevents you from waking up with creases on your face.

Unlike natural silk, the synthetic fabric may not be very breathable, but it's Oeko-Tex certified for chemical safety. We also like that this sleep mask can be rolled or folded compactly, allowing you to easily pack it for a trip.

The Details: One size | Polyester, rubber | Hand wash

Best Weighted

Saatva weighted silk eye mask.

It delivers a soothing effect with gentle pressure to help you fall asleep quicker.

The weight might cause it to slip down your face in some sleeping positions.

Saatva's Weighted Eye Mask is meant to deliver a calming effect through gentle pressure stimulation, theoretically helping you fall asleep faster. The weight comes from natural glass beads, which are evenly dispersed to ensure uniform pressure.

As for the exterior, you're looking at luxuriously smooth, breathable, friction-reducing silk. One thing to note is that due to the weighted design, the band may not be quite strong enough to keep it in place, so it's best when you're sleeping on your back and not moving around too much.

The Details: One size | Long-fiber mulberry silk, glass beads | Hand wash, lay flat to dry

Best Blackout

Ostrichpillow ergonomic eye mask.

This ergonomic sleep mask keeps all light out of your line of sight while allowing you to open your eyes and blink with it on.

It may not be very comfortable while sleeping on your side.

If you want a true blackout effect, Ostrichpillow might be your best bet. This eye mask boasts six layers of foam and textile to keep all outside light out of view while ensuring breathability and comfort for hours.

The three-dimensional ergonomic design is supposed to adapt to the contours of your face and allow you to open your eyes while wearing it. You can adjust the strap to get the proper fit, but since it's padded around the temples, this mask may not be the comfiest option for side sleeping.

The Details: One size | Modal, foam | Machine wash

Best Adjustable

Royce new york luxe eye mask.

The premium design is made of leather with velvet lining, and the stretchy strap can be loosened or tightened as needed.

It’s a bit stiff.

The Royce Luxe Eye Mask has a full-grain leather front and super-soft velvet lining to effectively block light while optimizing comfort. Unlike many others we found, the strap is not only stretchy but also adjustable, making it a good fit on all heads.

We also like that it's available in a handful of colors, including sophisticated neutrals, sleek metallics, and bright, punchy hues. This high-end sleep mask makes a stellar gift too. It comes in a wrappable box, and you can monogram it if you purchase from the brand's website or bring it to the Royce Monogram Shop at Saks Fifth Avenue or Bloomingdale's in Manhattan.

The Details: One size | Leather, velvet | Spot clean

Best Skin-friendly

Blissy sleep mask.

This silk sleep mask is gentle against the skin, breathable, and Oeko-Tex certified to ensure chemical safety.

It's not adjustable and may be too tight for some heads.

This sleep mask from Blissy is crafted from the highest grade of mulberry silk. It features a 22-momme weight to maximize opacity and durability. And it's Oeko-Tex certified, so you can bet it's free of potentially harmful chemicals.

The sumptuously soft fabric is gentle against the skin and breathable to prevent you from sweating. Since silk isn't as absorbent as cotton and other natural textiles, it's less likely to soak up your skincare products, allowing them to do their thing while you rest. This mask is also conveniently machine washable and comes with a carrying bag for travel.

The Details: One size | 22-momme 6A grade mulberry silk | Machine wash, tumble dry low

Best With Eye Cups

Manta sleep mask.

The thoughtfully designed Manta Sleep Mask doesn't put pressure on your eyes, so you can open and close them while wearing it.

It doesn't roll or fold up as flat or compactly as others.

If you like the idea of a sleep mask but don't like the feeling of something being pressed against your eyes, consider getting one with eye cutouts. This option from Manta has large foam cups for the eyes. Promising to put zero pressure on your eyelids or lashes, you can open and close your eyes while wearing it.

This adjustable sleep mask is designed to provide a full blackout effect without sacrificing breathability or comfort. What's more, it comes with a set of ear plugs and its own carrying case, which doubles as a wash bag.

The Details: One size | Modal, poly-cotton, polyester | Machine wash, lay flat to dry

Best for Side Sleepers

Mzoo sleep eye mask.

It keeps pressure off your temples and contours to your face to block light without a stiff or bulky feel.

The absorbent foam may take a while to dry after washing.

Many sleep masks work best when slumbering on your back, but this one was made with side sleepers in mind. The thin foam padding adequately blocks light without adding unnecessary bulk or stiffness.

It contours to your face while the sides keep pressure off your temples. Not only that, but the deep eye cups allow you to blink freely while wearing the mask and won't mess up your lashes. This eye mask is also adjustable, so you can make sure it stays in place through tossing and turning.

The Details: One size | Fabric, foam | Machine wash or hand wash, air dry

Best Packable

Lunya washable silk sleep mask.

This foldable, rollable mask can be tucked into any suitcase or backpack and used for sleep or as a skincare headband.

The elastic band may stretch with use, so think about getting the smaller size if you're worried about it being too loose.

Lunya's Silk Sleep Mask is ideal for travel. You can wear it over your eyes and ears to block light and tamper outside noises when you need to catch up on sleep , then use it as a headband for your daily skincare routine.

This lightly padded mask has a 100 percent mulberry silk exterior and soft polyester filling. Though it flaunts a plush, pillowy feel, the semi-flat design rolls or folds up effortlessly. You can easily pack it in a suitcase, tuck it into a backpack pocket, or even keep it in your purse.

The Details: S, L | Mulberry silk, polyester | Machine wash or hand wash cold

Tips for Buying Sleep Masks

Consider the shape and thickness.

When buying a sleep mask, first consider the shape and thickness. Most options can be worn comfortably while lying on your back but not necessarily in a side position. Side sleepers may want a mask without thickly padded temples.

Those who want to be able to blink and open their eyes should look for one with contoured eye cups. Additionally, flatter masks will block some light, but if you want a full blackout effect, you'll want to get an ergonomic design that eliminates gaps around the nose and temples.

Get the right fit

Fit is important too. As with headbands and goggles, a mask that's too tight can be uncomfortable and potentially lead to a headache. On the other hand, one that's too loose may not adequately keep light out and might slide down your face or slip off mid-snooze.

Most sleep masks only come in one size, but they usually have stretchy bands to accommodate different head sizes. Still, an adjustable strap is ideal, as it'll help you get the exact right fit.

Think about the material

Sleep masks can be made of various materials. A breathable fabric like cotton or silk is generally best, as it'll help prevent sweating, overheating, and excess oil production. "I prefer silk, as it's softest against your skin and will create less distraction, especially if you're sensitive to fabrics," says West.

Satin looks and feels like silk. Although the smooth textile can help minimize friction on your skin and hair, it's usually made of synthetic fibers and isn't as breathable as its naturally sourced counterparts. Some sleep masks feature other materials that block light better than fabrics, such as foam or leather.

A sleep mask shouldn't be too tight or too loose. You want it to stay securely on your face without slipping down or shifting from side to side when sitting upright (especially if you plan to use it on a plane or train). And while a tighter fit will minimize light gaps, you don't want it to feel restricting, either. We recommend positioning the eye covers so they block the most possible light, then adjusting the strap to keep it in place.

A sleep mask can be really helpful when you need to get some rest. Dozing off can be hard when you're jet-lagged, working odd hours, or staying in a new place . And since any type of light can be stimulating, the darkness provided by a mask can signal to your brain that it's time to sleep. Some people use sleep masks once in a while, like when traveling, and others may wear them regularly to optimize their sleep schedule, fall asleep faster, and reduce wake-ups throughout the night.

Like travel pillows, sleep masks can help you not only fall asleep but also sleep comfortably on an airplane . "A sleep mask is valuable for those international flights that require a sleep reset to combat jet-lag as you cross time zones," says West.

A passenger puts liquids into a bag at airport security check

Liquid restrictions at UK airports to remain in place until June 2025

Travellers will have to wait another year for 100ml limit to be lifted after government extends deadline for new scanners

Holidaymakers will continue to face limits on the amount of liquid they can carry on flights out of the UK this summer after the government extended the deadline for airports to install new security scanners by a year.

The Department for Transport had previously set a target for the introduction of 3D scanners in all UK airports by 1 June, but this has now been extended by 12 months because some major airports will not be ready in time.

Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester Airports Group, which owns Manchester airport and Stansted, said in January that they would not meet the deadline and hoped the latest scanners would be fully operational in 2025.

The scanners, which have already been fully introduced at London City airport and Teesside airport, use computed tomography to produce clearer and more accurate images.

They also include the latest explosive detection capabilities, which can detect threats without the need for liquid containers to be removed.

When introduced, the current 100ml limit on the amount of liquid that can be held in carry-on luggage will be scrapped and replaced with a two-litre rule.

Nor will liquids and laptops have to be removed from carry-on bags, speeding up the security process.

The restrictions on liquids were introduced in 2006 after security officials foiled a plan to blow up a transatlantic flight using liquid concealed in a bottle of soft drink.

The government is now telling travellers that they should continue to expect the current 100ml rule throughout the summer.

Th aviation minister, Anthony Browne, said: “By 1 June, more than 50% of passengers will be going through the new security checkpoint, but our message is that travellers should prepare for the current rules to be in place and check what the specific rules are for the airport they are using.”

Department for Transport officials said some airports had faced supply-chain delays in securing orders for their scanners.

Other airports had been hit with construction problems, including having to reinforce floors because of the weight of the machines.

The government said it would issue penalties for airports that were not ready after the June 2025 deadline, but gave no details of what they might be.

after newsletter promotion

It is the second time the government has been forced to delay the rollout after initially setting a deadline of 2022 .

The installation of the new scanners has come with additional costs for airports. Heathrow is spending about £1bn on the new equipment, including upgrading 146 security lanes across four terminals. The Guardian has contacted Heathrow about its progress.

Manchester Airports Group said it was making good progress at both of its sites and was introducing the upgrades lane-by-lane, with several already operational. Full completion of the programme is expected next year.

Gatwick said its position was unchanged from January when it indicated a completion date of spring 2025 .

London Luton airport also has some lanes operational and said it was “making excellent progress” towards the June deadline.

Newcastle airport said it had already installed the technology, and Bristol airport said it would meet the government’s deadline.

The Moscow Metro Museum of Art: 10 Must-See Stations

There are few times one can claim having been on the subway all afternoon and loving it, but the Moscow Metro provides just that opportunity.  While many cities boast famous public transport systems—New York’s subway, London’s underground, San Salvador’s chicken buses—few warrant hours of exploration.  Moscow is different: Take one ride on the Metro, and you’ll find out that this network of railways can be so much more than point A to B drudgery.

The Metro began operating in 1935 with just thirteen stations, covering less than seven miles, but it has since grown into the world’s third busiest transit system ( Tokyo is first ), spanning about 200 miles and offering over 180 stops along the way.  The construction of the Metro began under Joseph Stalin’s command, and being one of the USSR’s most ambitious building projects, the iron-fisted leader instructed designers to create a place full of svet (radiance) and svetloe budushchee (a radiant future), a palace for the people and a tribute to the Mother nation.

Consequently, the Metro is among the most memorable attractions in Moscow.  The stations provide a unique collection of public art, comparable to anything the city’s galleries have to offer and providing a sense of the Soviet era, which is absent from the State National History Museum.  Even better, touring the Metro delivers palpable, experiential moments, which many of us don’t get standing in front of painting or a case of coins.

Though tours are available , discovering the Moscow Metro on your own provides a much more comprehensive, truer experience, something much less sterile than following a guide.  What better place is there to see the “real” Moscow than on mass transit: A few hours will expose you to characters and caricatures you’ll be hard-pressed to find dining near the Bolshoi Theater.  You become part of the attraction, hear it in the screech of the train, feel it as hurried commuters brush by: The Metro sucks you beneath the city and churns you into the mix.

With the recommendations of our born-and-bred Muscovite students, my wife Emma and I have just taken a self-guided tour of what some locals consider the top ten stations of the Moscow Metro. What most satisfied me about our Metro tour was the sense of adventure .  I loved following our route on the maps of the wagon walls as we circled the city, plotting out the course to the subsequent stops; having the weird sensation of being underground for nearly four hours; and discovering the next cavern of treasures, playing Indiana Jones for the afternoon, piecing together fragments of Russia’s mysterious history.  It’s the ultimate interactive museum.

Top Ten Stations (In order of appearance)

Kievskaya station.

Kievskaya Station went public in March of 1937, the rails between it and Park Kultury Station being the first to cross the Moscow River.  Kievskaya is full of mosaics depicting aristocratic scenes of Russian life, with great cameo appearances by Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin.  Each work has a Cyrillic title/explanation etched in the marble beneath it; however, if your Russian is rusty, you can just appreciate seeing familiar revolutionary dates like 1905 ( the Russian Revolution ) and 1917 ( the October Revolution ).

Mayakovskaya Station

Mayakovskaya Station ranks in my top three most notable Metro stations. Mayakovskaya just feels right, done Art Deco but no sense of gaudiness or pretention.  The arches are adorned with rounded chrome piping and create feeling of being in a jukebox, but the roof’s expansive mosaics of the sky are the real showstopper.  Subjects cleverly range from looking up at a high jumper, workers atop a building, spires of Orthodox cathedrals, to nimble aircraft humming by, a fleet of prop planes spelling out CCCP in the bluest of skies.

Novoslobodskaya Station

Novoslobodskaya is the Metro’s unique stained glass station.  Each column has its own distinctive panels of colorful glass, most of them with a floral theme, some of them capturing the odd sailor, musician, artist, gardener, or stenographer in action.  The glass is framed in Art Deco metalwork, and there is the lovely aspect of discovering panels in the less frequented haunches of the hall (on the trackside, between the incoming staircases).  Novosblod is, I’ve been told, the favorite amongst out-of-town visitors.

Komsomolskaya Station

Komsomolskaya Station is one of palatial grandeur.  It seems both magnificent and obligatory, like the presidential palace of a colonial city.  The yellow ceiling has leafy, white concrete garland and a series of golden military mosaics accenting the tile mosaics of glorified Russian life.  Switching lines here, the hallway has an Alice-in-Wonderland feel, impossibly long with decorative tile walls, culminating in a very old station left in a remarkable state of disrepair, offering a really tangible glimpse behind the palace walls.

Dostoevskaya Station

Dostoevskaya is a tribute to the late, great hero of Russian literature .  The station at first glance seems bare and unimpressive, a stark marble platform without a whiff of reassembled chips of tile.  However, two columns have eerie stone inlay collages of scenes from Dostoevsky’s work, including The Idiot , The Brothers Karamazov , and Crime and Punishment.   Then, standing at the center of the platform, the marble creates a kaleidoscope of reflections.  At the entrance, there is a large, inlay portrait of the author.

Chkalovskaya Station

Chkalovskaya does space Art Deco style (yet again).  Chrome borders all.  Passageways with curvy overhangs create the illusion of walking through the belly of a chic, new-age spacecraft.  There are two (kos)mosaics, one at each end, with planetary subjects.  Transferring here brings you above ground, where some rather elaborate metalwork is on display.  By name similarity only, I’d expected Komsolskaya Station to deliver some kosmonaut décor; instead, it was Chkalovskaya that took us up to the space station.

Elektrozavodskaya Station

Elektrozavodskaya is full of marble reliefs of workers, men and women, laboring through the different stages of industry.  The superhuman figures are round with muscles, Hollywood fit, and seemingly undeterred by each Herculean task they respectively perform.  The station is chocked with brass, from hammer and sickle light fixtures to beautiful, angular framework up the innards of the columns.  The station’s art pieces are less clever or extravagant than others, but identifying the different stages of industry is entertaining.

Baumanskaya Statio

Baumanskaya Station is the only stop that wasn’t suggested by the students.  Pulling in, the network of statues was just too enticing: Out of half-circle depressions in the platform’s columns, the USSR’s proud and powerful labor force again flaunts its success.  Pilots, blacksmiths, politicians, and artists have all congregated, posing amongst more Art Deco framing.  At the far end, a massive Soviet flag dons the face of Lenin and banners for ’05, ’17, and ‘45.  Standing in front of the flag, you can play with the echoing roof.

Ploshchad Revolutsii Station

Novokuznetskaya Station

Novokuznetskaya Station finishes off this tour, more or less, where it started: beautiful mosaics.  This station recalls the skyward-facing pieces from Mayakovskaya (Station #2), only with a little larger pictures in a more cramped, very trafficked area.  Due to a line of street lamps in the center of the platform, it has the atmosphere of a bustling market.  The more inventive sky scenes include a man on a ladder, women picking fruit, and a tank-dozer being craned in.  The station’s also has a handsome black-and-white stone mural.

Here is a map and a brief description of our route:

Start at (1)Kievskaya on the “ring line” (look for the squares at the bottom of the platform signs to help you navigate—the ring line is #5, brown line) and go north to Belorusskaya, make a quick switch to the Dark Green/#2 line, and go south one stop to (2)Mayakovskaya.  Backtrack to the ring line—Brown/#5—and continue north, getting off at (3)Novosblodskaya and (4)Komsolskaya.  At Komsolskaya Station, transfer to the Red/#1 line, go south for two stops to Chistye Prudy, and get on the Light Green/#10 line going north.  Take a look at (5)Dostoevskaya Station on the northern segment of Light Green/#10 line then change directions and head south to (6)Chkalovskaya, which offers a transfer to the Dark Blue/#3 line, going west, away from the city center.  Have a look (7)Elektroskaya Station before backtracking into the center of Moscow, stopping off at (8)Baumskaya, getting off the Dark Blue/#3 line at (9)Ploschad Revolyutsii.  Change to the Dark Green/#2 line and go south one stop to see (10)Novokuznetskaya Station.
