One of my favorite ways to get myself out of a rut is to have an at home spa day. And recently that has been happening very frequently… For the last month or so I have been having a really hard time balancing all of the aspects of my life leaving me feeling super unmotivated to get anything done. When ever I am feeling this way I have to remind myself that it is okay to take some time for yourself to get back on track. For me my favorite way to regroup is to treat myself to a spa like experience! Even if that just means putting on my favorite face mask for 30 minutes. Recently I have discovered a new favorite way to pamper myself with the VIIcode Oxygen Eye Masks.
First up I wanted to share with you some of the unique features of these eye masks. Something that really intrigued me about this product is that they can be used over night for a full 8 hours! Their gel like material helps them to stay in place while soothing the eye area. I had never heard of an eye mask that you could a. leave on that long and b. sleep in… I knew instantly that I had to try them. But if the over night thing doesn’t appeal to you these masks can also be used during the day for about 2-4 hours to ensure you get the full benefits.
Since receiving the eye masks I have used them both ways and have had success with both. When I used them at night they stayed put for the full 8 hours and felt extremely comfortable around the eye area. The first time I used them was a tad weird, there was definitely a learning curve since I had never slept in eye patches before. But they performed surprisingly well and after that I had no issues slapping them on my eyes before jumping in to bed. When used during the day I experienced the same results in regard to the ease of use. I actually preferred this method when I was looking to have a day of rest and relaxation. Like I mentioned earlier I have been focusing on taking time for my self to recharge. Recently when ever I am in need of a little pampering I always reach for these eye masks. They have become such a staple in my routine!
Some of the key benefits of these eye masks include skin that feels instantly refreshed, minimized signs of aging around the eyes, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and instantly moisturizes and soothes the delicate under eye area. Since I started using these eye masks I have noticed that my under eyes feel way more hydrated. I have also noticed that my under eye area feels very soothed after using these masks. They don’t irritate my super sensitive skin and they have even made my under eyes feel smoother then they ever have! I have really been enjoying these eye masks and I can’t wait to see the continued results!

Tips and tricks:
I love to put these eye masks in the fridge an hour or so before I use them. This creates a wonderful cooling effect and added relief to the under eye!
If you are having a bit of trouble getting the eye patches to stick for the full 8 hours, you can use a tiny bit of your favorite over night mask to help them stay in place!
Also avoid using heavy use of serums and moisturizers around the eye area. This will also help the eye patches to stick better!
