Beginner Friendly Blindfold

The Black Rose Budding Blinder by Doc Johnson would be an excellent mask for beginners because it is easy to use, has a non-intimidating appearance, and is a great price! The lengthy sashes make this mask a one-size-fits-most that actually will fit everyone. The mask works well for sensory play but isn't the best blindfold available if you're looking for a mask that can be used for sleeping in as well.

extremely useful review
The Black Rose Budding Blinder by Doc Johnson arrived in a rectangular cardboard box. The front of the box states the product name and has a photo of a model wearing the mask. The back of the packaging has a brief product description, states a few product features, and the company website.

The packaging is attractive and can be used for storing the blindfold if you wanted to. The packaging is much larger than the actual mask though. I just keep blindfolds on my nightstand. The packaging can be recycled.

Inside of the box, the blindfold is wrapped around a thin piece of cardboard and sealed in plastic. The front of the mask and the rose decoration is made of a faux-leather. The sashes that tie around the wearer’s head are a silk-like fabric- it’s not actually silk. I’ve taken a few measurements of the blindfold laying flat. If you need any additional measurements, please send me a message and I will get them for you.

Width of mask: 7 inches
Length down centre front (nose area): 2 5/8 inches
Length down eye area: 3 ¼ inches
Sashes: 24 inches each

The mask is solid black in colour. There is a black rose that sits on one side of the front of the mask. The rose is just less than 1 inch in height and has a diameter of 1 inch. I had assumed that the rose would add weight to the blindfold but it is actually quite light. The rose is not detachable but you could remove the rose with a seam ripper if you wanted to. The inside of the mask is also all black in colour. It’s a silky-like fabric on the inside of the mask so it’s very soft against the skin.

The sashes to the blindfold are a beautiful purple colour. They aren’t silk but they feel just as nice against the skin. The sashes are what you would tie behind the wearer’s head to secure the mask to the face. The sashes are extremely long (see measurements above) so the mask really will fit all sizes of heads. The ends of the sashes are slanted.

While the sashes are soft and long, I don’t really like blindfolds that require tying at the centre back. The reason for this is because I find the knot to be uncomfortable if the wearer is lying down. Also, the knot tends to slip down the back of the head a bit so you’ll need to keep adjusting it to make sure the mask is where you want it to be on your own or the wearer’s face. Of course, this is just personal preference. My partner doesn’t care either way.

The mask is not stiff- it is flexible and flexes to the face when you tie the sashes. The mask blocks out most of the light but there is a bit that can be seen when you look down around the nose area. If you tie the sashes really tightly behind the wearer’s head, they won’t be able to see as much. I tied the back into a bow though so it wasn’t as tight as it could have been.

I probably wouldn’t recommend this as a sleeping mask but it’s great for sensory play. I like using masks for both purposes. The reason I don’t recommend this as a sleeping mask is for a couple reasons. If you sleep on your side that the rose is on, it may be uncomfortable for you with the rose pressing against the pillow. If you sleep on your back, the knot that you’ve made with the sashes will be uncomfortable to the back of your head. Lastly, if you move around a lot when you sleep, the tied sashes may loosen and you may wake up with the front of the blindfold being at the back of your head.

The packaging didn’t state any care instructions and there is no tag to the mask. If the sashes need to be washed, I’d recommend hand washing them. The front of the mask can be wiped with a damp cloth if anything gets on it.

Overall, it’s a nice mask. It works well for sensory play, is soft against the skin, and is an excellent price. If you were looking for a pretty mask to use during play, I’d recommend this one. It would make an excellent mask for beginners because it has a very non-intimidating appearance and is easy to use.
