The lavender isn't too overpowering but this mask is definitely not one size fits all. Maybe I have a small head, but the mask doesn't stay firmly in place and slides around letting light in. If I slept on may back (who does?) and didn't move at night, this would be fine but that's not the case. If the strap was adjustable, I wouldn't have any complaint as I was looking for something that was big with lots of eye coverage and it does cover the eye area well. However, I can only rate this is as adequate because it's not so big that it falls off and it's better than not wearing a mask at all, but I will be looking for another mask as it clearly doesn't do the job for me.
