As someone who occasionally struggles with insomnia, the next morning I always end up with dark eye circles under my eyes. I’ve tried various face masks and eye masks that attempt to correct the problem, but the issue I find with these masks is that I don’t have time in the morning to put on an eye mask and wait 20 minutes before heading out the door. So when I was asked to try out VIIcode’s 8-hour overnight eye mask, I was intrigued by the concept and thought it was a clever good idea. Why not be productive while you’re sleeping right?!
The VIIcode oxygen eye mask is pretty easy to use. Unlike other eye masks, it is meant to be put on at bedtime and left on for 8 hours overnight. The eye mask comes with two gel-like eye pads that should be placed under your eyes. The gel material has a cooling and soothing effect. I used the mask twice a week, but you can also use it up to 3 times a week according to the instructions. I found that twice was a good for me and left my eyes feeling refreshed in the morning. I definitely did see a difference in the area under my eyes upon waking up. The area looked much lighter and brighter, and the dark circles minimized. Each box comes with 6 uses, and for a full treatment cycle it is recommended to get 3 boxes.
So you must be wondering what’s the catch with this seemingly magical product right? Well, for someone who has sensitive skin and am hyperaware of when there’s stuff on my face, I did have to get used to the feeling of pads under my eyes. I usually put the eye pads on half an hour before bed and do some reading to adjust to the sensation. It’s also on the pricier side at $58/box. This equates to $9.60 per mask, which compared to sheet masks is definitely more expensive. But if you struggle with dark eye circles and like me don’t have time in the morning to fix them, this overnight eye mask is a great solution that is effective and time-saving. And everyone knows time is money! So for me it is worth it to be able to save time and wake up looking fabulous.
