There are people who cannot be awakened neither by light or loud sounds or any other disturbances in their sleep environment.

Features that set Panda Eye mask apart from other competitors
Now we will introduce you to the most important features of Panda eye mask, to know more about the features that set it apart from other competitors.
100% naturally and hypoallergenic bamboo
Panda is a leading UK sleep company for products made of bamboo. They offer pillows, topper, bedding, duvets and other products that are 100% made of bamboo or bamboo is combined with some other materials. Panda eye mask is made from 100% bamboo, inside and out. Bamboo is a great material because it is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, breathable, soft and durable.
Also, it is eco-friendly since it requires less water than cotton. And Panda uses bamboo from approved forests. Also, it is grown pesticide free and it is plastic-free, so this is a 100% eco-friendly product. It even comes in a recycled and recyclable gift box, with a bamboo travel bag. This is truly great products for vegans and all people who care about environment. Dyes are also rigorously tested and the eye mask is certified to Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX, so feel free to choose whatever color you want, everything is safe.
The Panda Bamboo eye mask is quite large and is only available in one size, but that shouldn’t worry you. Although it is large, it is lightweight, so it will be very comfortable for you. It is deliberately designed to be large, to block light from all sides and give you complete darkness.
Adjustable strap makes it suitable for everyone. It will fit perfectly without pinching or feeling tight for people with a larger head, and people with a smaller head will be able to fasten it so it doesn’t fall off as they move during the night. So we can say that Panda company has managed to achieve that one size really suits everyone
We want all the sleep products we use and are in contact with our skin to be soft and smooth. And especially the eye mask because it covers our face. Panda eye mask is silk-like soft thanks to top quality bamboo. Many layers of perfectly soft bamboo will make it so pleasant to wear this mask.
One more important thing to mention is that bamboo is a vegan-friendly and cruelty-free alternative to silk. It is equally soft and gentle, but worms, who are animals, will not suffer as is the case with silk production.
No plastic or harmful chemicals
The world is facing a major environmental crisis that is mostly caused by the excessive use of plastics. That is why you will be glad to hear that the Panda eye mask doesn’t contain plastic, same like other Panda products, so even the buttons are made of bamboo and not plastic.
Also, this product is certified to Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX which tells you that it is free from harmful chemicals and toxins. OEKO-TEX is one of the most famous certificates in the textile and sleep industry.

Big praises to Panda for giving warranty for this type of product, since such small products usually do not come with a warranty, so this is one of the exceptions in the UK market. It comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty against defects of any kind, which are not caused by your mistreatment.

What sets apart Panda eye mask among many other similar items?
We don’t know where to start this part of our review, because we think Panda eye mask is such a good product, that it has virtually no competition in the UK market. But we will single out a few features that especially make it stand out.
Due to its size, this eye mask perfectly fulfills its primary role, which is not to allow light to reach your eyes. In addition, it is very light and comfortable, so it will not disturb your sleep in any way. Also, it is 100% eco-friendly, vegan-friendly and hypoallergenic. Easy care and 1-year warranty are also worth mentioning.
How did we test the product?
Just a few clicks separate you from ordering a Panda eye mask. If you choose the UK delivery standard, you will wait 2 to 3 days for your eye mask to arrive, and there is a next day and the Saturday delivery option too. You have to pay extra for all three options, and if you order two eye masks then the UK delivery standard will be free.
The first thing we really liked when we received the shipment was the recycled and recyclable gift box that complements the eco-friendliness of this product. When we unpacked it, slight bamboo off-gassing was present, but we believe you will first notice how soft and silk-like it is. We washed at 30 degrees C in the washing machine before use.
During the overnight test, all members of our test team were able to use it without any problems. Adjustable strap is really adjustable and everyone will be able to adjust to their head circumference and preferences. It is very pleasant for facial skin, and does not allow light to reach you from either side. It is breathable, so hot sleepers can also use it. In the morning, it is noticeable that your skin is less wrinkled than usual.
