Trying Out Eye Masks for the First Time

This post is sponsored by VIIcode, but the content & opinions expressed here are my own.


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! :]

  5. My biggest eye area concern are puffy eyes or bags, not dark circles, so I can't speak to that. I would love to test out some heated eye masks. That sounds interesting! :]

  7. As someone with darker circles from sinus issues but not much puffiness, it would be cool to see if they helped with this. But great review! It's so hard to find a good eye cream/treatments!

  10. Wow - this does look interesting! I've never heard of an undereye mask that you wear all night long. Was it weird to try and sleep with? I've only used one brand of eye masks before and it made my face feel numb lol! (then again it also had snail mucus in it, so it could have been that!)

  11. I sometimes get puffy eyes as well if I drink too much water... and I usually use a chilled gel eye mask for a few minutes and it works like a charm. 💫
