No queen can oversee her realm without getting a good night's sleep. Especially the Queen of All Media. That's right — even Oprah Winfrey, who knows a thing or two about gadgets, goodies, go-to's and must-haves — needs a rest. And when she does, she reaches for the Asutra Silk Eye Pillow. It's so beloved that it's made the coveted list — no, not Santa's: Oprah's Favorite Things for 2023. Now everyone in the kingdom can get a good night's sleep and live happily ever after.

Sweet dreams await in this set. It comes with a weighted mask filled with flax and lavender as well as a gel mask.

What sets this eye pillow so far apart from the others? For starters, it's made of 100% silk. (What's more luxurious than that?) It also has a soothing lavender scent and flax seeds that add just the right amount of weight to your mask. Want more? The set also comes with a cooling gel eye mask to soothe puffy or tired eyes, and the adjustable strap and gentle curve guarantee a comfortable fit around your nose. Sweet dreams are made of this.

It's PETA-certified cruelty-free, no formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, mineral oil, or synthetic colors or fragrances. In short: Out with the bad ingredients, in with the good!

And the Asutra Silk Eye Pillow isn't just for sleeping. Use it for meditation or to relieve headaches. Or use it during savasana during yoga — or just to soothe your mood! It definitely makes Oprah happy, as the queen herself proclaimed: “Sleeping with a mask is life-changing — I cannot tell you how much the quality of my sleep has improved! This weighted 100 percent silk one stays down and doesn’t let even a pinch of light in.” When the light starts creeping in at 6 a.m. on a Sunday, you'll still be blissfully in la-la land.

More than 2,000 reviewers who know what time it is — bedtime — are raving about this eye pillow. One shopper even got experimental: "I opened up the zippers and put a drop each of rosemary oil, Bulgarian rose oil and peppermint oil, and not only was it relaxing but also invigorating. Just 10 minutes of wearing it and breathing in the aromatherapy and I felt brand new! Like I hadn't been kept up all night by my toddler ;) I can't recommend trying this enough."

And this shopper also loved that you can make it your own. "I love this mask because I can customize how much filling/weight it has. I usually take out about half of the filling and it’s the perfect amount for me. I adore the light lavender scent and the silk texture."

Meanwhile, an Oprah impersonator who wrote, "THIS IS THE BESTTTTTT EYE PILLOW EVERRRRR!!!" said that it helped relieve their terrible headaches. "I get migraines, and my sinuses are jerks every time the weather changes. The cool comfort of an eye pillow and the scent of lavender really help ease my pain while I wait for meds to work. This eye pillow is the cream of the crop, way better than any others I've had over the years."

Got any hot sleepers out there? "I sleep hot, but the mask doesn't make a noticeable temperature difference," said one. "I am a side and stomach sleeper and the mask has stayed put without feeling tight. There aren't any seams to dig into my face. The chia seeds have sort of a bean-bag effect so you can move them around inside the mask to mold to your face. No light creeps in."

"Perfect eye mask," this final reviewer proclaimed. "The pillow is silky and well made. The strap is nicely secured to the mask and is adjustable. It has a nice amount of filling inside. The flax conforms to the contours of the face and the lavender is awesome...there's also a small packet of extra flax and lavender if you want to increase the weight of the mask or boost up the lavender fragrance. I think I might get one for my Mom. I find it funny that I have such strong feelings about an eye mask, but I really really like it."

Nap, meditate, yoga — it goes well with all forms of relaxtion.
