Masking & Relaxing
Hey loves! Happy New Year! As we begin 2019, I think it is important to strive for the best year yet, whether it be through setting goals, making lists, or declaring resolutions. I know I said I am not personally one for resolutions, but I am definitely into bettering myself in any ways that I can. Fortunately, the company, VIIcode, reached out to me at the perfect time with a product that enables me to practice a little self-care; an eye mask! Yes, this post will be a bit different because instead of talking fashion, I will be talking about masking! Of course, this still relates to the topic of fashion because confidence is the best accessory. When you feel good about yourself, it certainly carries over into how you dress. With that being said, sometimes you just have to throw on your cute PJs, grab an eye mask, and get your beauty sleep on! I am excited to honestly review these eye masks and share my experience with you! Keep on reading to see how I like to unwind while masking and relaxing!
I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to work with VIIcode because I love skincare and beauty. I use face masks at least once a week to pamper myself and keep my skin in check, but I never tried an eye mask. My eyes are one of my favorite features, so it is about time they got the love they deserve!
I received the oxygen eye mask for dark circles; the perfect mask for a busy college student! Sometimes, my eyes feel so tired from long nights of studying, but these eye masks include lots of great ingredients— vitamins, antioxidants, botanicals, to name a few—that are the best remedy for my hectic lifestyle. Each box includes 6 packs of masks that you can use 3 times a week, and it is so convenient because you can sleep in these masks for up to 8 hours! If you would rather be awake while the masks are working their magic, you can wear them 2-4 hours as well!
I chose to stay awake while using my masks, and I really enjoyed how luxurious they felt! First, I removed the makeup under my eye area, so I had clean skin to start with (normally I would remove all of my makeup, but for the purpose of pictures, I kept some on). I admit I was nervous that the pads were going to be super sticky, but they adhere well to the skin without being harsh. As soon as I put them on, the gel formula was so soothing and refreshing. My skin gets very dry in the winter, and the ingredients didn’t irritate or burn my very sensitive complexion. They were comfortable, and I liked how I was able to multitask while wearing them.
If I hadn’t been so busy, I could most definitely sleep in these masks! Like I said, they aren’t aggravating at all, and they made me feel very relaxed, as you can see! When I took them off, my skin felt amazing! It honestly looked brighter and healthier overall. I only tried one pair, but I am not lying when I say that I am hooked!
This week, I took some time for myself to practice self-care with VIIcode. It is so easy to get caught up when we have a lot filling our agendas, but it is important to take a staycation and pamper yourself, too! Eye masks are a good way to get your skin feeling fabulous, so your outer beauty can match your inner beauty. Now, all you have to do is comb those closets to decide what pajamas you are going to wear for a chic spa day! Have a wonderful week, and Happy Closet Combing!
