Will sweatbands stop me getting sweat in my eye when working out?

Sorry for such a random question but I'm quite a sweater during working out and I always have the issue that sweat drips into my eye which then makes my eye sting and I have to keep stopping to wipe my face and eye. I'm debating trying an 80s style sweat band around my forehead but I think I'll look like an idiot I'm not sure if they will actually work. Could anyone recommend one or give me any ideas? Thanks

If it's an absorbent one. H&M have some cheap ones at the moment, some are elastic material to keep your hair out of the face but the sweat band type ones would work for this i think.

Thanks, I've been looking At the more traditional thick towering type ones thinking they will be better. Alas I'm not near an H&M so it may have to be whatever I can get online

Buffs and other similar headbands/ scarves can also absorb sweat as well as being used in different ways.

I have a few microfibre head tubes (aka buffs) that are aimed at keeping my neck and lower face warm when running. However, they make excellent headbands and emergency handkerchiefs

A smear of Vaseline along the brow line keeps sweat out of my eyes when running in hot sun (can't wait to have that problem again!)
