We know you’re busy. Maybe you’re a boss babe who is on her work grind from 9:00am ‘til way past 5pm.. Or maybe you’re a multitasking mama, who’s balancing three kiddos’ crazy schedules. Or maybe you’re a college student, who is studying all night and running on venti vanilla lattes. Whoever you are, and whatever your daily hustle looks like, chances are… you’re tired. Let’s face it: no matter how important you know it is, fitting in eight hours of sleep just isn’t gonna happen. 

My whole life, I’ve lived by the mantra that I can “sleep when I’m dead,” because the to-do list is never ending, and there’s too much fun to be had. However, the older I get, the more my body disagrees with that life motto. Now, after working all day, going to the gym, and staying out for one-too-many margaritas with friends, I wake up with dull skin and eyes that look like the light has been lost. Enter: the under eye mask.  Though there are many varieties of under eye masks, for our purpose, we’ll be talking specifically about our Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks. Read on to learn about what they are, what they do, and why you should include them in your beauty routine.
