If you’re like many adults, you’re not getting much sleep. According to NCBI, “40% of people age 40 to 59 reported that they are getting less than recommended amounts of sleep.” So, it’s time to do something about insomnia and sleepless nights, so for that, we’re turning to Dr. Harris.
Is bad sleep really a problem?
We didn’t think so at first, but then we read these stats:
- Almost 20% of all car accidents and injuries are associated with sleepiness. - NCBI
- 3-5% of obesity in adults could be caused by lack of sleep. - Harvard
- 75-90% of insomnia sufferers have an increased risk of medical disorders. - NCBI
- Sleeping 60 to 90 minutes more per night can make you happier and healthier. - APA
Our sleep aid pick - Dr. Harris Anti-Wrinkle Sleep Mask
The Dr. Harris Anti-Wrinkle Sleep Mask promotes emotional relaxation that can help you sleep better. The features of this mask make it truly unique as there are raised silicone dots on the inside edge of the mask - these dots stimulate receptors in the skin.
This stimulation has been proven to increase relaxation more than a cotton eye mask in a clinical study, with 67% of participants feeling more relaxed after using the Dr Harris Sleep Mask. Plus, these dots also showed to reduce fine lines around the eye area by helping to relax the face whilst wearing the mask.

Romper was one of the first publications to put the mask to the test. This is what she had to say:
“I’ve personally been wearing it all night, every single night for the past four months, and can attest that it puts me in a deeper sleep; honestly, even my face looks more relaxed when I wake up.
My husband has also been wearing his for about three months and, via his Garmin watch, has been able to clock in hours of deep sleep that he hadn’t seen before — like, five hours of deep sleep versus the two to three hours he got before wearing the mask.”
Dr. Harris Sleep Mask customer reviews
"No kidding I am so impressed with this mask. I suffer from insomnia so I have tried so many different sleep aids. I bought so many eye masks and nothing worked. But the Dr Harris Wrinkle Eye Mask is the best thing I have invested in for both my sleep, health and keeping my wrinkles away." - Abbs, S. US
"Love it! This was quite an investment for me but I really feel it has got me off to sleep when nothing else would." - Valerie, J. UK
Dr. Harris Sleep Mask Study
In Spring 2022, we asked 12 CurrentBody customers to participate in a sleep study using our Dr Harris Anti-Wrinkle Sleep Mask. Each participant was asked to track their sleep for five consecutive nights (using their smart watch device) without the sleep mask, then follow the same process whilst sleeping using our Sleep Mask.
67% of all participants saw an increase in the time spent asleep. REM sleep was increased by 8 minutes, which is impressive 10% more as a healthy adult should be getting on average 90 minutes a night.
Denise, one of the participants, found a significant change before and after using the mask. And she reviews the amazing Dr. Harris mask in her own words:
“The mask certainly helped me stay more asleep or get back to sleep quickly and I feel like I had longer periods of deep sleep. The first 2 nights I wore the mask I really noticed the difference, I couldn’t recall any times I was awake and just lying trying to fall back asleep. When I woke up in the morning I felt like I had slept straight for hours.”
