Save (Ur Pretty) Face Blue Light Blocking IRL Filter

Now more than ever, our phones have become our lifelines to the outside world. Nonstop scrolling, texting, and FaceTiming, however, exposes skin and eyes to high levels of blue HEV light. This tempered glass screen protector helps block blue light and minimize its damaging effects, which can range from eye strain to age spots.

IRL filter shields your face from the majority of blue UVE* light with 4 layers of high-quality Japanese tempered glass. Crystal-clear, smudge-proof, and scratch resistant, it’s an essential step to prevent aging your delicate skin.

We love our phones, but they aren’t always our friend. In fact, they age our skin, strain our eyes, mess with our thyroids, and disturb our beauty sleep. Studies show that blue UVE light can cause long-term skin damage, chronic eye strain, and headaches. Prolonged use can mess with our natural sleep rhythm and even affect metabolism –yikes!
