Oh hey guys! Do you remember me? It’s been a little over a week but I feel like I’ve been gone ages. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I went to Philadelphia last weekend for the first time! I thought it would be a nice relaxing weekend with plenty of time for blogging. Nope. I was out all day for the whole long weekend and did 0 blogging. Hence my disappearance. But, I did actually use my Snapchat (BeingLeanna) if you follow along you’ll have seen snippets of my adventures!
I’ll be posting about Philadelphia soon but in the meantime i’m bringing it back and talking about my second favorite topic, skincare. Boy oh boy this winter did my skin in. I’ve been doing everything in my power to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and have found some excellent products. You all know my love of masks so today, i’m talking all about this amazing eye mask I discovered the VII code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask. It’s a mouthful but I promise it does wonders.
I have tried out many an eye mask in my day. As someone who suffers from dark circles I’m willing to trying anything with promises of making them better. This company reached out to me and offer to send me a box and I happily agreed. I had never tried an eye mask quite like this before. If you’re looking to step up from just an eye cream, keep on reading!
Does It work?
The VII Code mask is an 8 hour, overnight treatment which is different from any other sheet mask I’ve tried. As a person who sleeps on their stomach I was very skeptical that these would even stay on my face that long. Luckily, I was proven wrong in my first night of wearing these. The eye masks are made up of a gel-like material which feels insanely comfortable on your skin. Think of those gel insoles for your shoes, but for your face. Cushy and comfy in all the right places.
Needless to say after my first night I was hooked but I would never write a review without a full and thorough test so I used these as directed until my box was empty. You’re supposed to apply the mask two to three times per week and there are 6 masks per box. I used this for three weeks. VII Code does say that three boxes is a full “treatment” but I had results after just one use. I can’t comment about it’s claims to help crows feet or fine lines but I can say that I saw an immediate reduction in my dark circles and after continued use the puffiness under my eyes has mostly disappeared.
//These actually stick to your eyes! I can’t tell you how many eye masks I’ve tried that slip down my face because they have so much product in them. The gel texture really keeps a firm hold without being stiff or uncomfortable.
//Stomach sleepers can wear these! As I mentioned before I was hesitant but I was definitely proven wrong. I expected these eye masks to wander around my pillow case but they stayed put.
//They actually reduce under eye circles. Really. The ingredients in these eye masks combined with the wear time really seem to be doing the trick. They don’t dry out as you sleep and you barely even notice they’re there.
//They’re expensive. They currently retail for $55 on Amazon making them a tad over $9 per mask. If you don’t have under eye issues these probably aren’t the eye masks for you.
//If you need to re-position them they don’t stick as well. This isn’t really a big deal, just make sure you get them in a good spot on the first try. Close to the eye socket but not too close where it’s annoying.
I’ll definitely buy another box or two of these to get the “full treatment” in and see if there is any lasting effects. I really enjoy pampering myself and these sure do feel like a treat. I highly suggest popping them in the fridge before applying for an extra cooling effect. Paring these up with my favorite pampering products really feels like a luxury some nights. If you’re in the market for a great feeling eye mask, this is definitely for you!
Have any of you tried these masks? What is your favorite eye mask, i’d love to try it out!
