VII Code T2 Oxygen Eye Cream O3.0 & O2.0 Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray Review

VII Code O2.0 Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray

 

Hi All! I’ve been in the market for some good quality eye creams that could potentially help to hydrate my undereyes which suffered from extreme dryness this last Winter. My skin, lately, seemed to have gone through a lot due to the lack of moisture in the air and that has caused some dry patches and roughness especially around the eye area. So, when VII Code reached out to me to try their eye cream and eye spray, I was totally glad because, to be honest, it’s really kind of hard to find the ideal eye cream for your skin type or for any specific undereye skincare concern. Since I had a good experience with VII Code’s O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles before, which you can read HERE, I had a hunch that I will enjoy their T2 Oxygen Eye Cream and also their latest product, the Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray immediately.

T2 Oxygen Eye Cream O3.0 (5 ml: $99) – This anti-aging eye cream comes in a beautiful blue packaging that looks unique and sleek. I love looking at its decorative shape that sort of stands out in my sea of skincare products. Upon initial testing, this eye cream has a nice floral scent that goes away after a few minutes of application. It feels really silky and creamy but not sticky and it goes on smooth on my undereyes. My skin absorbs this easily without any residue. The following day, I noticed immediate hydration on my undereye area. It no longer feels rough and it didn’t look very dry. My concealer and foundation adhere well with this eye cream without emphasizing any dry areas. Another thing I love about this is the fact that this is great for my sensitive eyes. I never noticed any burns or stings no matter how much I applied this product close to my eyes. Also, this eye cream comes with its Crescent Activation Strip which doubles as a spatula and as an eye massager. I love it because it conforms to the shape of the eyes and it sorts of stimulates the blood flow around that area.

You can use this eye cream in the evening after cleansing your face, or you can also use this in the morning before applying your makeup. For maximum hydration, you can also supplement this eye cream with VII Code’s Oxygen Eye Mask, available HERE.

 

VII Code T2 Oxygen Eye Cream O3.0 how to apply

 

Per VII Code’s website, these are the following ingredients of this particular eye cream.

 

Elderberries: Anti-oxidant content maintains the skin cells, leaving you with glowing, younger skin.

Jojoba Oil: Not only firms and keeps your skin hydrated, but also useful in lessening the appearance of skin wrinkles. Rich in antioxidants, which help regenerate the skin cells.

Evening Primrose: Boosts blood circulation, which is helpful to treat tired skin and eyes and is especially effective in removing wrinkles.

 

VII Code O2.0 Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray

 

O2.0 Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray (5 ml: $23) – This is VII Code’s latest eye product and yes you read it right, it’s an eye spray and it has several interesting ingredients that promote undereye skin hydration and nutrition like: Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Glycerin, Red Algae Extract, and an active marine ingredient from the Mediterranean Sea.

 

Will all those ingredients, I find this eye spray to be very mild, very fluid, clear, non-sticky, and unscented. Therefore, this is great for those with sensitive skin and sensitive eyes. I personally like this a lot because this product does not only maintain undereye hydration, it also feels rejuvenating around the eyes, kinda like an eye/face mist. To use: You can spray this immediately to the eye area (with eyes closed) for a distance of about 15 cm and gently pat the mist around your undereyes for full absorption. Also, you can spray this on a cotton pad and gently press it on your eye area for a very refreshing feel.

 

Vii Code review

 

Overall, I had a great experience testing these VII Code T2 Oxygen Eye Cream and the O2.0 Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray. I find these to be beneficial undereye products that suit sensitive skin and with a spa-level feel. These addressed my undereye skincare concern and for that, I’m really grateful.

Glamglow Gravitymud, Thirstymud, Flashmud, Youthmud, & Supermud Review

How’s it going Guys! I’ve been obsessing about masks lately and decided to try some Glamglow face masks since they seem to have a couple of really interesting products, and also, I was looking for something that I could use for specific skincare situations.

Masks are really fun to try and they’re such good skin preps to incorporate in your regular beauty routine. They come in different formulations and purposes, depending on your skin condition and what it needs. These Glamglow minis are so nice to try because then you could rule out which ones you’ll like and might need.

 

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

 

I’ve had a really good experience with their Glamglow Supermud Mask (further reviewed HERE), and I’ve been using it twice a week since then. It’s probably one of the best treatment face masks I’ve ever used, and it just clears my blackheads and whiteheads like a breeze. My pores have never been better and breakouts have been prevented. It has a strong lavender scent which you’ll get used to pretty easily and it dries fast. This is a great mask for cleaning the skin thoroughly and preventing too much oil buildup.

glamglow supermud review

Since my purchase of the Glamglow Supermud, I’ve always wanted to experience some of their masks, especially during the days when I feel like I may need some hydration on my skin, or when I feel like I need a thorough exfoliation or a facial scrub after an oily sweaty day. So here are the minis that I’ve tried.

 

Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment

Glamglow Flashmud Brightening Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – This mask is meant to deliver a radiant and luminous skin. It also evens the skin’s texture and minimizes or prevents dark spots. In other words, its main purpose is what its name says. A brightening mask. It smells like a fusion of great tea, white clay, something acidic and something floral. It has little bits of what looks like finely- grounded leaves and the mask overall feels very gritty. It’s definitely a great exfoliating mask or a face scrub. While I haven’t noticed any brightening effects, I do like this mask. I like that it makes my face feel soft and it controls the oil. This mask has a flesh color which transforms into a semi-transparent finish after a few minutes. Glamglow suggests to leave it on for at least 20 minutes, then you can rinse it off with water.

 

Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – Of all the Glamglow face masks, this is probably the most fun to try. It smells like a yummy Piña Colada and it starts off as a metallic white cream which transforms into a silver peel-off mask. The larger size comes with a brush for an easy application because applying this mask with your fingers alone can be a slight challenge. I didn’t notice a firming sensation with this mask, but I love the fun of using it. It will transform you into either a magical unicorn or like Tin Man from Wizard of Oz.

 

Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – This mask is meant to exfoliate, brighten, smooth, and soften the skin with antioxidant properties. It also gives a tingling sensation when applied. Somehow, I feel like this is quite similar to Glamglow Flashmud, but probably even more exfoliating and it does tingle on the face but you really have to pay attention in order to notice it, at least I didn’t feel it much on my face. This smells like herbs and something soapy, but it’s not bad. It doesn’t dry like most clay masks, but it exfoliates really well and it kinda feels firming too. The best thing about this is how my face felt so smooth and so soft after rinsing, almost like baby skin,

 

Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – A very moisturizing mask that smells so delish like vanilla chocolate and coconut, you could almost eat it. This doesn’t dry at all, it feels more like a very hydrating facial moisturizer for the days that the skin may experience dryness or some dry patches. This is really creamy but not sticky. I like that it feels very soothing and it makes my skin soft, especially when exposed to strong ACs or this could be great for this coming winter air.

 

Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment

 

Of all the Glamglow masks reviewed here, I’d say that I like them all a lot because I can definitely see myself using each one of them. They all have a certain purpose which my skin will definitely need, but if I have to rank them, I think my first will always be the Glamglow Supermud, followed by the Gravitymud/Firming (violet container), then the Flashmud/Brightening (orange), Thirstymud/Hydrating (blue), and finally the Youthmud/Tinglexfoliate (black).

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme De-Tox Hydrator

What’s Up Dears! I recently discovered an exciting face mask that’s so meant for this summer, and it’s all about them good ol’ cucumbers. As we all know, cucumbers not only depuff the skin, but they also soothe irritated skin. They even hydrate and has anti-aging properties. Well, lucky us, there’s a new cucumber face mask in town, it’s the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator. Such a long name right? Let’s just call it, the PTR Cucumber Gel Mask for short.

This Cucumber Gel Mask is an exciting must have specially in this warming temps where most of us would want to frolic on the beach or to better yet spend some time on waxing centers before showing off that hard-earned beach bod. That’s because this PTR Cucumber Gel Mask helps soothes sunburned skin, reduces redness, and soothes irritations. You can even use it right after major sun exposure even if there’s no sunburn noticed. It has a cooling feel to it which calms and soothes the skin and pores that’s been waxed or peeled.

Apart from the soothing effect, this Cucumber Mask reduces puffy undereyes and dark circles. No more raccoon eyes. Ha! This definitely helps to not make you look stressed out for sure, thus, making you look well-rested for the day. It’s very gentle and refreshing with ingredients like: cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, lemon and aloe to name a few. I love how it feels on the face, and the gel formulation feels already cool even without refrigerating the mask. The instruction says to put the product inside the refrigerator for a very cool treatment, which is what I’ve been doing lately and it feels really really good.

This mask is ideal for any skin types even for sensitive skin. Just apply a coat on a clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. I like to leave it on for 5 minutes more actually, and then rinse with cool water. If you have very dry skin, you can leave the product overnight or use it more often during the week. It’s a mild and soothing product, so you can even use it daily.

If I have to rate this PTR Cucumber Gel Mask on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being a meh and 5 being awesome, I’d say that this mask deserves a 4.5. It may not be a treatment mask that solves it all, but I like its wellness effect on the skin. It restores hydration and prevents my skin from having dry patches. Also, this soothes the redness of my cheeks and depuffs my puffy lids. I love the fresh cucumber-chamomile scent and the relaxing and enjoyable feeling that this mask brings.
