What’s Up everyone! I could probably count on my fingers the number of eye creams and other undereye treatments I’ve come to used and liked in the past. That’s because it’s one of those skincare products/regimens that I tend to forget, neglect, and frankly, it’s hard to find the right one that works, especially when my undereye issue is not just a combination of lack of sleep and overall lifestyle, but also it’s partly genetics. Apart from having dark undereye circles which I usually try to hide by using creamy concealers, I also have puffiness and very thin dry area on my undereyes that I tend to control by using some soothing eye masks and heavy eye creams. Some of them kinda work, but most of them don’t, and from time to time I would forget applying them anyway since they’re easy to overlook.
Enter VII Code’s Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles (6 treatments: $58). I was thrilled when they sent me a box to try and I immediately used each treatment every night, carefully following the instruction on how to use it. To give you a bit of an overview, VII Code is an eye skincare brand with a rich history that dates back to the 18th century. They’re specialized in creating tailored eye skincare products targeting different undereye skin concerns. The O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles has plant oxygen extracts, grapeseed oil, seaweed, and white tea among its ingredients. The goal of this mask is to nourish and refresh the skin around the eyes, aiming not only to reduce dark circles but also to reduce undereye puffiness and minimizing any signs of aging by making the skin around the eyes firmer and looking well-hydrated.
Use each individually wrapped eye pads after cleansing and prepping your face, that is, after your favorite moisturizers or any other creams. Try to be careful not to put anything towards the eye area and don’t put any eye creams at all because the VII Code eye mask has a peel off sticky side that needs to adhere to the skin. Upon application, I noticed that this eye mask has a gel-like feel, kinda like one of those hydrocolloid bandages, and it’s really soothing. I let it stay on my skin overnight (8-hour use) and I was surprised that it indeed remained on my undereyes without moving. In fact, this eye mask adhered well all throughout my nightly usage of it. I even put some on the refrigerator and that made them even more relaxing to use. On day two, I woke up and noticed that my eye bags were looking less pronounced and I didn’t look so tired, also the skin around my undereyes seems more balanced. As the days progressed, I noticed that my undereyes didn’t look and feel so dry and that I didn’t need to apply that much concealer at all. Also, I didn’t have any problem with my foundations looking cakey on my undereyes since my skin feels and looks more hydrated.
The VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask has been one of the most fun eye masks I’ve ever tried. They’re quick, practical, easy to use, and applying them is definitely not messy. Each eye mask sticks well to the skin, yet they’re also easy to remove without causing any skin irritation. They feel mild and soothing to the senses and they help to make you look and feel good about your undereyes.
