VII Code Oxygen Eye Mask

Skincare-wise, I've eliminated most of my concerns with dedicated products and even though it was a trial and error type of progress, I finally got to the point of feeling good in my skin. However, I have a recurring issue which is closely related to my line of work. I am a shift worker and have been for over eight years now. I can tell you that 12h-long night shifts have definitely affected my eye area. 

As soon as I come home for a night shift, I notice my eye area being very dark. Blotches of yellow and purple pigment concentrated under the eye. Eyelids quite swollen and the puffiness extending to the sides of my eyes. As you may imagine, this is not particularly a pleasant sight and although my eyes do look a bit better after I catch some zzz's, dark circles and puffiness can hang around for an additional day after which my eyes come back into normal and right before I know it – it's time for another night shift. Imagine going through this cycle for all these years – it's an ongoing struggle.

Visually, concealers do help a lot and color-correction does help tone down the problem but I find the texture of my under-eye skin also getting a bit looser and not so supple to the touch. In addition to everyday use of eye cream, something relatively new in my skincare arsenal is the idea of eye masks. I have tried economy packets before and they have refreshed the eye area but no significant change has been noticed so far. VII Code Oxygen Eye Mask is something I'd even describe as phenomenal since I've actually seen change & results happen before my own eyes and this is something I really want to share with you.

  • Po pitanju njege koze, uspjela sam eliminisati najvece probleme uz dugogodisnje istrazivanje i ispitivanje proizvoda. Bilo je tu dosta promasaja dok nisam dosla do onoga sto mi odgovara ali mogu reci da se napokon osjecam dobro u vlastitoj kozi. Ipak, postoji jedan problem koji me iznova muci a usko je povezan sa mojim poslom. Kako znate, smjenski sam radnik preko osam godina i naporne nocne smjene od po 12h su ipak ostavile traga na mom okoloocnom podrucju.
  • Cim dodjem kuci iz nocne smjene primjecujem da je podrucje ociju jako tamno. Primjecujem i fleke zutog i ljubicastog podtona a koncentrisane su ispod ociju. Kapci su nateceni a ta se natecenost nerijetko proteze i na okolnu kozu. Kako mozete pretpostaviti, to nije najprijatniji prizor. Nakon sto se naspavam, sve to djeluje malo blaze ali se taj umorni izgled nekada zadrzi i narednog dana. Prije nego se okrenem, vrijeme je za novu nocnu smjenu i sve se vrti u krug. 
  • Vizuelno, korektori priskacu u pomoc i korekcija odredjenim bojama zaista pomaze ublaziti problem no primjetila sam i da sama koza oko ociju polako gubi na elasticnosti te nije mekana na dodir kao ranije. Uz svakodnevno koristenje okoloocnih krema, relativan novitet u mom preparativnom arsenalu su okoloocne maske. Do sada sam isprobala vise maski za oci u kesicama ali nisu mi dale neke znacajnije rezultate. VII Code Oxygen Eye Mask je nesto sto bih nazvala fenomenalnim otkricem jer sam koristenjem uvidjela znacajnu promjenu te je nesto sto zelim podijeliti sa vama.

VII Code Oxygen Eye Mask (VII is pronounced as “Vee-Two”) comes from a US-based brand with an interesting approach to skincare (you can learn more at their website here). VII Code Oxygen Eye Mask ($55) is an all night eye mask targeting tired eyes, dark circles, and fine lines. One box comes with 6 packets (2 masks each) that can be used 2-3 times a week. What I found unique was the fact you apply these eye masks under your eyes and leave them on for up to 8h. I actually have used them mostly during night and they have faired well through my tossing and turning while I sleep. Sometimes I wore them for less than 8h on those days I spent at home and you can bet I wore them at work during my night shifts (reactions were hilarious!).

Upon receiving my box, I really liked the aesthetic of the packaging. All masks come in dedicated pouches which are carefully wrapped in a black sleeve. Silver colored pouches (and the box itself) contain all essential info. After opening the sachet, you see eye masks resting on a plastic mini holder. Each mask has two sides of different texture and you peel off the foil side to reveal a bouncy clear gel. It has no scent, texture is fresh and gel-like. You gently apply the mask under each eye and the cooling gel texture of the mask will hug the skin perfectly. It feels very soothing and comfortable. Popping them into the fridge for half an hour prior application feels incredible against tired, red eyes. 

What's inside? It uses Ecological Oxygen Plant Extracts (EOPE), which help repair damaged eye skin. It also contains a healthy dose of Vitamin E. The principle of “aerobic skincare” is how these masks work. This is based on the notion that oxygen is essential for the formation of new cells, and when skin receives the right amount of oxygen, healthy skin will develop as a result. These eye masks work towards allowing good oxygen flow during the entire time you are wearing it in order to encourage healthy cell growth.

After the first use I've noticed my puffiness is gone, skin feels very fresh and hydrated and extremely soft to the touch. Under-eye area also seems tighter, firmer and more youthful. Color of the skin looks a little brighter and dark/yellow-colored patchiness was also gone. Not only do eyes look better, they also feel awake. I can skip eye cream after using them and my makeup applied much better. I don't have wrinkles under my eyes but fine lines definitely look softer, almost blurred. All of the results are visible after each use and that's mind-blowing for me as the only thing I used to notice eye masks provide was hydration. The recommended use is 3 boxes as a course of treatment and I have experienced fantastic results with just one box! One thing I find somewhat limiting is the $55 price tag per box but if you can afford these masks I highly recommend them (so worth the splurge)! We can order VIIcode oxygen masks via Amazon (through this link here).

  • VII Code Oxygen Eye Mask (VII se izgovara kao “Vee-Two”) je proizvod koji nam dolazi od americkog brenda dosta interesantnog pristupa njezi koze (nesto vise mozete procitati na njihovoj web stranici). VIIcode O2M Oxygen maske za oci  (cca 95KM) su maske cjelonocnog djelovanja s ciljem uklanjanja tamnih kolutova, finih linija i uopsteno pruzanja pomoci umornim ocima. Unutar jedne kutije se nalazi sest paketica sa po dvije maske za oci. Ovih sest paketica mozete koristiti 2-3 puta sedmicno. Ono sto smatram jedinstvenim za ove maske jeste nacin djelovanja tj. sto ih nosite do 8h na kozi. Licno sam ih najcesce koristila tokom noci te su se lijepo drzale ispod ociju i tokom nemirnog sna. Nekada sam ih nosila i krace vrijeme (cca 4h) tokom dana kada bih ostala kuci a mozete se kladiti i da su bile i u nocnoj dezuri sa mnom (kolege su se super provele zezajuci me!).
  • Po dolasku paketa u moje ruke, odmah sam primjetila da je pakovanje lijepo osmisljeno. Sve maskice dolaze u zasebnim kesicama koje su lijepo rasporedjene u pregradama unutar crnog harmonika kartonskog “rukava”. Na kesicama srebrne boje ali i na samoj kutiji se nalaze sve potrebne inofrmacije o proizvodu i koristenju. Nakon sto izvadite maske iz kesice, vidjeti cete da se nalaze na mini plasticnom postolju. Maske imaju dvije strane a onu sa folijom cete odlijepiti – folija otkriva svjezu, gelastu teksturu koja se potom prislanja na kozu ispod oka. Oblik gela lijepo prijanja uz kozu i cvrsto se drzi ali bez nelagode – gel djeluje umirujuce i hladi kozu. Drzati maske u frizideru pola sata prije koristenja je recept za trenutacnu ugodu umornim ocima.
  • Sta se nalazi unutar maski? Koristeni su ekoloski biljni ektrakti na bazi kisika (EOPE) koji pomazu obnovu eventualnih ostecenja koze okoloocnog podrucja. Kako sam shvatila, sve se bazina na “aerobnoj njezi koze” koja se temelji na tezi da, posto je kisik neophodan za stvaranje novih celija – kada kozi bude obezbijedjena adekvatna kolicina kisika, doci ce do razvoja zdrave koze. Ove okoloocne maske sluze da bi svo vrijeme dok ih nosite, one uspjele obezbijediti neprekidan tok kisika u kozu, sto potpomaze njeno obnavljanje.
  • Vec nakon prve upotrebe sam primjetila da maske drasticno smanjuju natecenost ociju, sama koza je nevjerovatno hidrirana, svjeza i jako mekana na dodir. Cijelo okoloocno podrucje djeluje zategnuto. Boja koze oko ociju je blago posvijetljena i ton je ujednacen – zuckaste i modre fleke u kutovima ociju su doslovno nestale. Ne samo da oci nakon tretmana maskama izgledaju vidno bolje – osjecam i da su odmornije. Nakon upotrebe maski mi uopste nije potrebna okoloocna krema (koza je intenzivno hidrirana) a i sminka se ljepse nanosi preko koze. Nemam bore oko ociju ali su fine linije definitivno manje uocljive. 
  • Ono sto me iznova odusevljavalo jeste sto su ovi rezultati i osvjezenje koze primjetni nakon svake upotrebe. Rezultati su vidni a maske za oci koje sam ranije isprobala bi obicno samo pruzile hidrataciju. Preporucena kura tj. tretman bi trebao ukjuciti ukupno tri kutije ovih maski a ja sam dobila odlicne rezultate uz samo jednu – pitam se kako bih tek bila zadovoljna sa jos dvije kutije! Ono sto bih navela kao ogranicavajuce jeste cijena od 95KM po kutiji, sto stvarno nije malo ali ako ste u prilici i mogucnosti – definitivno preporucujem! Takodjer i dostupnost je ogranicena za one koji ne preferiraju online kupovinu posto se ove maske mogu naruciti samo preko Amazona (link za kupovinu je ovdje).
