Lately I've been trying my hardest to invest more thought and effort into my skincare routine. You all may have noticed this if you watch my Instagram stories that I've been incorporating more beauty tips as I've been trying new products. I love sharing the results with you all and also hearing what you all love too!
I've noticed over the past year since having my baby that my skin has changed drastically and not necessarily for the better. It must be a combination of lost sleep, lack of hydration (I literally forget to drink water since I'm so busy), hormones, and honestly some days I'm just too exhausted to even think about just washing my face. New mom problems, right? So recently I was contacted by VII Code to try out their Oxygen Eye Masks which are like nothing I've ever used before. I did a little research before giving them a try but overall they ticked all the boxes for me in terms of the results they offered so I figured it couldn't hurt to try something new and fun!
It's been SO hot here in Portland lately, so I decided to pop the box in the fridge during the time I was using the masks so they could be extra cooling and refreshing when I put them on! The product can be left on the area for up to 8 hours and is made to be worn overnight, you don't even need to think about it, just peel, stick, then sleep! If you're a mom or have a busy lifestyle, these eye masks are totally game changing when it comes to skincare you don't need to think about, overnight skincare is genius!
My first concern when I heard that they were a gel product was that wearing them for hours on end the gel would not stay put. I was pleasantly surprised to see and feel that this was not the case! The product is incorporated into a sticky pad that has a strong papery side that faces out and the gel sticks on your face and stays put for as long as you wear them! I have heard that you can also use a sleeping mask on top of the product if you are worried about them moving, but they truly stick on really well! I never had an issue when I used them at night and I move around a lot.
Ok now on to the good part, my results! Suggested use is 2-3 times per week and I used them every other day for about two weeks (each pack comes with 6 masks). After the first use I noticed a drastic reduction in the puffiness under my eyes, but the most noticeable improvement was the texture of my skin. My under eye area has never felt more hydrated and smooth! After a week of use the area was visibly brighter and I noticed that is was not only easier to apply makeup on my under eyes, but my concealer and foundation stayed put and didn't settle into the fine lines under my eyes! This was a huge win in my book! I didn't even realize how annoying those fine lines were until I didn't have to deal with my makeup gathering into them every single day.
Overall I have to say I loved using these eye masks! I'm excited to integrate them into my regular routine and continue to benefit from the results. I still can't believe I'm in my late 20's and this is the first time I'm using an eye mask, but hey, better late than never! Especially with skincare. If you want to try them out as well, click HERE as always, please leave me any questions you may have in the comments. I'd also love to hear if you've tried VII Code's products before and what you think!
