The Thera Pearl Eye-Essential Mask is a new product to hit the streets, it can be used hot or cold. When hot it can provide stress relief and relieve symptoms of dry eye or computer strain along with certain eye conditions such as blepharitis and styes and used cold it can help reduce puffy eyes and headaches. I think this is a great idea, especially for anyone who spends alot of time on the computer, 20 minutes at the end of the day or when needed and it provides great benefits. The mask costs £7.99 and can be bought from Superdrug.
