Jason laughed at me for taking this picture but you HAVE to see how it looks on, duh!
So today I'm going to talk you ears off about these vii eye mask strips. A review, if you will. Basically, they are oxygen eye masks that help with dark circles and anti aging, aka wrinkles! Let me start by staying that I thought when you got married it meant that you went to bed earlier and were always well rested or something. It's a lie, people!! Sometimes I stay up even later as a married person vs when I was single. We sometimes just stay up talking or watching a show together, or the oh so famously staying up to finish a few sign orders. Basically there's always an excuse for me.
Not sleeping as much as I like does = dark circles. They aren't TERRIBLE or anything, but yes, they are there. I also have had my fair share of tanning when I was younger (and I worked at 3 different tanning salons!!) so I will probably get some premature wrinkles thanks to that. Basically, I have started trying to take WAY better care of my skin so that I can hopefully prevent premature aging as much as possible. So when the people over at vii asked me if I'd like to review this product, obviously I said yes. So let's get to it:
Application: I was not sure what to expect at first because you SLEEP with the vii eye masks on. Now, I am not a mellow sleeper, I move all around, I literally sleep on my face, etc. So I was worried how these would stay on my face. Luckily, they are really sticky on the side you put on your face so they should stay in place! You just stick them right under your eye, go to bed and there ya go! They box says to keep them on for 8 hours, so basically a full nights rest.
Did I see results?: So the top picture is taken right before application before bed and the next photo is taken right after I took them off (like an hour after) the next morning. I did notice that my dark circles did shrink!!! It's not this huge difference and the pictures don't exactly catch it perfectly. Not like this dramatic effect, but if I used up the entire box, I think it would pretty much take care of the dark circles. I only have used 2 days because honestly I want to save the rest to use for an upcoming wedding so I look all bright eyed and cute instead of like a zombie with dark circles haha. So basically yes, it does work. I'm sure it would be even more dramatic of an effect for someone who has deeper dark circles and/or wrinkles.
Would I buy vii O2 masks again?: Yes. I wouldn't buy it every week or anything BUT I would not mind having a box on hand to use them for special occasions (like weddings!) and stuff. Once again, this would be more of those special purchases, not a regular thing for me personally, just because my dark circles aren't a huge enough of a problem to me.
Thoughts: Yes, it was kind of weird sleeping with something on my face but it wasn't enough to make me lose any sleep. I didn't feel like it was overly invasive or always slipping around or anything. The first night I did wake up and one of them was on my cheek but that is nothing compared to how much I move around in my sleep, so I just moved it back up under my eye and went to sleep again. The second night, I lost one. Like, it's still MIA. But once again, my own fault because I an the wiggliest worm when I sleep. Overall it is a product that I feel worked for me and would be very helpful to someone who has even deeper dark circles and/or wrinkles.
