VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask Review

VII Code sent me the VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles to try out and review for you beauties! If you are interested in learning more about the company VII Code I will have a link HERE for you to learn all about them!

Now, let's hop right into my review! So I wanted to really try these bad boys out before writing this review, which led me to finish my entire box before my review was even published. I would say the one huge downside is that only six come in a box for $58.00. For me, if something like that is the biggest downside to the product, that really is not bad at all. I have to say I wanted to really pamper myself so I put my box in the fridge and every time I wanted to use a packet I took it out and left the rest to stay cool. I think that just adds a super luxurious feel to the whole experience, at least for me it did! I have to admit I do not really have dark circles to begin with (knock on wood), so I can't say my dark circles "improved" but I can say that when I put these on I instantly went into relaxation mode and felt that my under eyes were getting more moisture to them than they ever had before. 

For me what I liked best about this product was that everything felt extremely sanitary. They weren't super slimy and each set of two came in its own individually wrapped package which was sealed. Sometimes for me when these mask products are super goopy and liquidy I feel like they get everywhere and do nothing but create a complete mess and when I want to relax and do an in home spa treatment the last thing I want to do is clean up slime from a product. 

My one huge recommendation when using any under eye mask product is PUT THEM IN YOUR FRIDGE! It makes the biggest difference! Trust me on this one!

Summer Makeup Routine

Clearly I completely forgot that it’s August and I have not put up a single summer related blog post. I thought if I am going to squeeze one in it should totally be about my new and improved summer makeup routine. Over the past few months I have completely revamped my everyday makeup routine to make it incredibly simple and effortless because honestly who wants to wake up twenty to thirty minutes earlier to get glam. Sleep is precious to me and I never want to give up a second of it.

Anyway, lets move on to my summer makeup routine! I will be telling you about my everyday routine as well as my glam-ish routine, which adds just a few extra steps!
Lets get started!

All of my base makeup stays exactly the same no matter what I am doing and includes,
Benefit Porefessional Primer
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer over any spots I want to cover up
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer on top of that if I am needing extra coverage
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

If I am staying basic I will add
Covergirl Lash Blast Length Mascara (TIP: no joke this mascara gives you an effortless lash lift/extensions look without paying the money of a lash lift and just using mascara!)
And set my entire face with my Wet N Wild Photofocus Setting Spray

If I am getting a little more dressed up I will add
A light wash of eyeshadow to my entire eye, my current go to has been Luscious from the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
MAC Modern Twist Kajal Eyeliner in my tight line
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara on my top and bottom lashes
Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
Jeffree Star Eclipse Highlighter
And last but not least I set my entire face with my NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

I can’t even write about what lippies I wear because it is changing every single time I do my makeup and will range from lip balm to lip gloss to a longwearing liquid lipstick.

I also quickly want to let you know why I am no longer wearing any foundation. I have pretty problematic skin that is extremely sensitive and every time I put on foundation this year it looked cakey, gross and just not cute. I did some research and found that not every girl out there actually wears foundation. My sister along with millions of other people only wear concealer where they need it and I wanted to try it out. As you can tell I quickly fell in love with the way my skin was looking and haven’t put on foundation in months. I realized I don’t need to cake on makeup to make my skin look flawless. I just simply cover the few pimples I have and call it a day and am incredibly happy with the way it has been going! Not to mention I don’t have to pay for foundation anymore and can splurge on concealer if I want!

Anyway! I hope you found this helpful and maybe this post will encourage you to try out just wearing concealer instead of an entire face of makeup!

Have a great week and I will see you all next Monday with a brand new post!
