Hay Fever Sufferer Shares 'Awesome' 99p Gel Eye Mask From Savers
At long last, summer is finally here. Yes, this is not a drill - that was in February, remember? It's actually nice outside, and might even become a mini weekend heatwave.
It's seriously crap. But, help could be at hand if you can be bothered to pick up one of these handy hay fever gel mask from Savers.
For the measly sum of just 99p you could give yourself some much needed relief from the dreaded pollen allergy, and you've got one eagle-eyed shopper to thank for this piece of priceless knowledge.
The selfless hay fever sufferer posted a picture of the gel eye masks to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains group on Facebook and said: "Tip for hay fever sufferers, these gel eye masks are awesome for putting on your eyes for relief, 99p in savers."
So, what do they actually do?
Well, according to the product manufacturer, they "relieve stress" and "reduce puffiness". That's pretty much all you can ask for from a gel eye mask, right?
It also claims that it is "non-toxic and hypo-allergenic". For less than a quid it has to be worth a go.

After the masks were shared online, sufferers - and relatives of sufferers - started queuing up to offer thanks.
One grateful person said: "Glad I've seen this my son's 8 and he suffers really bad with his hay fever.
"There was one morning where he couldn't open his eyes at all."
Eugh, that's all too familiar a scene for many of us.
Another person added: "I have these they are a god send honestly."
Even if you're not a seasonal sufferer, these eye masks aren't specifically for those with hay fever. If you've got a migraine, they'll help to sooth that out a bit, perhaps?
Oh, and let's not forget our faithful old friend Mr Hangover.
If you're feeling a bit delicate, these could be just the thing to make you feel a bit more human.
Seriously though, if you're feeling full of hay fever, there are steps you can take. Try putting some Vaseline around your nostrils to trap pollen. Take regular showers if you can. Obviously, take antihistamine tablets.
Some places will advise you to wear wraparound sunglasses to ensure that your eyes are as protected as they can be, but please don't.
You'll look like a knob.
