I bought this along with the eye serum. I was skeptical about the "de-stressing" claim but I work from home and struggle to relax after a long day looking at my computer so I thought - why not? I now dedicate time twice a week to 'relaxing' - and this mask helps. It feels strange / unfamiliar to start with but left my skin feeling great and I found the whole process very relaxing. I haven't tried similar products so I can't comment on those but I'll definitely be buying more of these.
