Slip’s silk eye mask — like the Trtl travel pillow or Real Purity natural deodorant — is one of those items that so many different people (whose taste and expertise we trust) have recommended to the Strategist. Alys Colayera, a travel expert at Black Tomato, told us: “[It’s] made of sumptuous silk and feels like a delicate cushion for your face.” Jen Rubio, co-founder of Away, is also a fan, and always has it on hand during long flights. And most recently — last week, in fact — Tamara Mellon included it as one of the things she can’t live without: “I love to sleep in complete darkness; I’m always in a battle with my fiancé because he likes to sleep with the shade up, but I want to fall asleep in a black hole. This is how I compromise. The silk also has this nice squishy padded quality that’s comfortable on the face.”
Right now, just in time for travel season, it’s a whopping 50 percent off at Net-a-Porter in this funky leopard pattern. Its cousin, another Strategist favorite, the Slip pillowcase, is also half off. Update: The eye mask sold out! But the pillowcase is still on available.
