When you think of sleep masks, what do you think of? Waking up at down is not easy to do everyday. Whether on the road or in a noisy hostel or home; get some much-needed shut-eye with an eye mask that will help you fall fast asleep wherever you are. Just read on the blog post.

 

 

Sometimes you can’t avoid those all-nighters studying for your big midterm or waking up at the crack of dawn to because it’s the only time you can take photos for that blog post that’s due. You start to feel tired. Your eyes are puffy or red or maybe there are never ending bags under your eyes.

It’s safe to say it’s not a confidence-booster. Usually it catches up with you when you don’t want it, like when you have an event or a date that night & you want to look your best. Or maybe it happens on the morning of your job interview, or worse yet the day you take your passport photo — the photo you’ll have to look at for the next 10 years.

I was browsing through blogs & commented on one that their eye mask looked cool; it’s a product I’d never tried before.

The next day VIIcode reached out to ask about working together. I was immediately interested. They ended up sending over a box of O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for All Night Repair for me to try.

The set comes with six pairs of eye masks, which are supposed to aid in reducing dark circles, puffiness, & wrinkles. The directions recommend applying the mask two or three times a week with three boxes entailing a full course of treatment.

The VIIcode eye mask is an 8-hour overnight treatment, making it different from your average sheet mask. This is meant to be used overnight, but you could use it throughout the day if you have time to wear it.

These eye masks have a specially formulated gel-like material that doesn’t stick, making application & removal practically effortless. The first time I used these I had to change the location on my eyes & was able to remove the eye masks & reapply them with ease.

The immediate cooling feeling once applied my eyes felt so relaxing. I did see a reduction in puffiness during the course of the eye mask, making it the perfect tool to assist in helping you feel your finest.

If you’re looking to experiment with eye masks, the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for All Night Repair just might be your saving grace. Get your girlfriends together & put the eye masks on during your girl’s night in, then wake up & take them off. Or you could be like me & wear them throughout the entire day as you do your blog work. At least I’m feeling & looking good!

A sleep mask can be used at home or while traveling as a passenger in an airplane car or train. People like using them when in a hotel, in hospital. To reduce the risk of eye’s major straining due to computer use we need an ‘eye gel mask’ which can provide ‘eye relaxation’ in a simplest way.

 

 

Dark circles are the second most common skin complaint. If you’re looking for an all-natural way to combat tired eyes, discoloration and puffiness, there are some easy ingredients that you have at home that can work just as well or better than expensive spa treatments. This method is seriously liquid gold!

Many people think lack of sleep causes the appearance of dark circles, but it’s a little more complex than that. This natural DIY treatment contains high levels of collagen. A recent study on collagen shows a “significantly higher skin elasticity level” and a “positive influence” on skin hydration and evaporation.  Read below to learn more about how this eye mask can help address the causes of dark circles, puffiness, skin inflammation and aids in hydrating dry skin + wrinkle reduction!

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup raw cashews
4 scoop Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin
1 packet raw Marine Collagen
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
Parchment Paper or Pre-made eye masks (these are the only natural ones I’ve found, and they’re re-usable!)
2 slices of pineapple
1 squeeze of lemon

INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine raw cashews, marine collagen, coconut milk, pineapple, lemon + water in blender
Blend on high
Combine mixture with beef gelatin in a pot on the stove
Mix until gel-like consistency
Remove and place onto parchment paper
Let cool + cut eye mask shapes with a knife
OR: Alternatively, add mixture to one side of pre-made eye masks + let cool
Apply to eyes. Let the magic mixture go to work for 15-30 mins. Remove.
Use within 24 hours or store in water to keep hydrated

WHY IT WORKS:

Cashew nuts help our body to utilize iron properly and eliminate free radicals. They contain high levels of riboflavin, pantothenic acid, thiamin, niacin + vitamins E + K.
Beef gelatin promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails.
Marine collagen makes your skin appear smoother and more supple. In studies, it has been proven to prevent the formation of deep wrinkles and actually decrease wrinkle appearance by up to 80%
Pineapple contains vitamin A, which has the ability to reduce inflammation and also act as a natural anti-fungal and antibacterial.
Coconut milk has high levels of Vitamin C which helps maintain elasticity and flexibility of skin. It is also rich in copper, and prevents wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C and citric acid, so they can help brighten and lighten your skin when used over time. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant for neutralizing free radicals and boosting collagen production.
