For those who suffer with insomnia or just find it plain difficult to wind down, you'll know the frustration that comes with being unable to sleep. The self-perpetuating cycle of trying to fall asleep while worrying that you're not, and knowing you've got only five - wait, no, now four – hours until you need to be up.

At this stage, you'll take anything to ease your restless mind. Enter, then, Aldi's new Self-Heating Eye Masks, £4.99. Baffled by the concept of putting heat on your eyes? Let us introduce you to the benefits...


First of all, people have extolled the benefits of self heating eye masks for years. A comfortable level of warmth around the eye area sees tension melted, furrowed brows relaxed. Heat in the area, put simply, allows you to pay attention to the sensation and gives your mind a welcome distraction from any racing thoughts. Heat around the eye may seem a daunting prospect, but self heating masks tend to feel cosy and cocooning.

There are also the two scents in these masks that aid relaxation: jasmine and chamomile, that both help to soothe and settle.

The new Self-Heating Eye Masks are available to shop in store. While you're here, though, scroll on down to find a highlight reel of Aldi and Lidl's best beauty buys. Because outside of that strange, strange middle aisle, there are some real beauty gems to be found.

Lacura Spa Foaming Bath Soak, £1.79

One capful under a hot running tap creates some serious bubbles. Very sensitive skin should avoid (it contains SLS and fragrance), but those with normal skin can enjoy bubbles in abundance and a pleasant soapy scent.
