Primark fans with hayfever praise £2 cooling eye mask for relieving symptoms


A woman suffering from hayfever has branded a £2.50 eye mask from Primark "so good" and credited it with relieving her painful symptoms.

In a TikTok video, user @elliegorley said she has been putting her mask in the freezer and applying it to her sore eyes which have been inflamed and irritated by the high pollen count.

Ellie, who pulls up the mask to show her eyes looking soothed, said: "Everyone with hayfever needs one of these, you put it in the freezer, so good."

In the caption, she used the hashtags #hayfeverproblems and #hayfeverhacks.

The video was watched more than half a million times since it was uploaded on Monday (June 21) and other people with pollen allergies responded to the video and said they already owned the eye mask and found it helpful.

One person commented: "Everyone with hayfever needs one of these."

"I need one so it doesn’t look like I’m crying all the time," joked a second user.

A third commented: "I have for my migraines, I love it."

Some people said they were already using a cold flannel to soothe their sore eyes but would consider one of the Primark eye masks instead.

This comes after people praised hayfever wipes for helping get them through the pollen season, calling them "amazing" and an essential way to fight back against the allergy.

Sold at Superdrug, the £2.00 wet wipes contain essential oils to trap and remove pollen from your skin.

And a driver insurance expert said motorists with hayfever could be convicted for drug driving if they take certain antihistamine medicines that cause drowsiness and come with warnings not to operate heavy machinery on the label.

The expert said the Road Traffic Act doesn't differentiate between illegal drugs, prescription drugs, or even over-the-counter medication, and there is a maximum fine of £5,000.
