Tired eyes and dark circles are beauty woes I’ve struggled with my whole life. I’m a dedicated member of the never straying, genetic dark circle club, so I’ve been looking for solutions for this skin issue of mine for years. I’ve tried home remedies, fancy eye serums and creams, even DIY concoctions, but nothing has ever given me the results I’m looking for. All I want is for my under eye look bright, refreshed, and like I’ve had a full night of sleep. Why are these results so out of reach? Incredibly, I think I’ve found my solution in a beauty realm I’ve overlooked, snubbing it to be pampered, high maintenance, and gimmicky. But, boy was I wrong. Eye masks have been the only beauty treatment I’ve ever tried that have given me the results I want and fast.
These eye masks are from VIIcode, a brand with a truly astonishing history that you can check out here. They offer two lines, VII Beauty for basic skincare and VIIcode for luxury options. Part of what makes this brand unique is their use of “powerful ingredients“. These ingredients help target specific skin concerns in order to create solutions to many widespread problems.
The first time I tried these little guys I was skeptical. As I said before, I’d been looking at this whole eye mask idea as an overzealous trend born out of the face mask craze. But because I’m a sucker for trying out anything beauty related, especially something that promised to help solve one of my largest skin concerns, I had to put these guys to the test.
Naturally, I decided to bust out these bad boys after a long night out with friends. I was definitely feeling worse for wear and I also was starting my new internship the next day, so a good first impression was important. In hindsight, going out was not the smartest idea, but thankfully, everything turned out all right because these eye masks were my life savior. I woke up the next day, feeling gross, but looking great! My eyes were so bright and fresh and there was hardly any puffiness. My dark circles, which usually cast a shadow from corner to corner, had been reduced dramatically. The only deep, dark, purple tones left under my eyes were tucked in the inner corner. My under eyes had never looked this good!
How to Use
One of my favorite features of this product is that it’s an overnight treatment. You apply the eye masks on clean skin. I personally decided to ditch my eye creams for the night and just use this. Otherwise, the rest of my skincare continued as normal. What’s cool about these specific VIIcode O2M eye masks is that they have a gel-like formula which acts as a gentle adhesive on the skin. This means that the masks stay in place as you sleep.
Something unique about these eye masks is that they are an 8-hour overnight treatment. You stick them on, go to bed, and wake up with beautifully refreshed eyes. So simple.
The VIIcode O2M overnight eye masks come in a box of 6 pairs and are intended to be used two or three times a week. The full treatment includes three boxes (of 6 pairs each) which is recommended for best results.
One of VIIcode’s features is that they include many beneficial ingredients to target specific skin concerns. The O2M Overnight eye masks contain potent antioxidants to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. This mask includes five key ingredients to help repair the eyes.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that neutralizes the oxidant effect of free radicals, which damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Aloe Vera is used as a skin hydrator.
Allantoin helps to soften and protect, while actively soothing skin. It also stimulates cell regeneration, promoting healthy skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate, a form of hylauranic acid, easily penetrates the skin to greatly increase its moisture retention. It boosts skin’s moisture content, reduce inflammation, and help prevent moisture loss.
Sodium PCA helps to retain moisture by preventing our skin cells from losing water and drying out, reducing inflammation, and preventing skin from aging.
