  1. I actually love that this mask doesn’t go over the forehead. I mentioned in another comment I am very prone to headaches so any kind of pressure can set them off. This one seems like it would be good for me as well seeing as I go like to sleep on my side. I will likely need a special pillow my wife said too so I am not sinking into anything.
