To me, there is nothing better than getting ready for bed and settling down after a long day. While my days look pretty crazy and chaotic, my nights have a sort of rhythm to them, at least on the weekdays. So, in today’s post, I am sharing my nighttime routine and reviewing a product that I have been using overnight for the past couple weeks!
First things first, I get a huge cup of iced water and place it on my night table. Normally, I find myself thirsty in the morning and sometimes right before I go to bed, so this is a must for me. Next, I wash my face and brush my teeth (and floss, if I remember!) As I am doing this, I usually have some mellow music on in the background.
After this, I settle into bed, and reach for the latest book I am reading. I am currently reading “Where We Belong,” by Emily Griffin, which is about a woman and her daughter. I am only a couple chapters in, but I would totally recommend it! If my mind is feeling restless, I’ll pick up my journal and write for a bit.
Pretty soon, however, my eyelids are feeling heavy and I can barely keep myself awake. I reach for my face lotion, my chapstick and recently, my VII Code Oxygen Eye Masks. I place the masks right underneath my eyes, close to the area where my dark under-eye circles live. The eye masks are meant to be used overnight, which I thought made them super easy to use for someone who has a full schedule.
The alternative is to keep the mask on for a couple hours at a time, but that is not very realistic for me, so I opted for sleeping with them on. I found that sleeping with them on was comfortable and after a bit, I didn’t even realize they were on my face. I sleep with them on the whole night, (usually looking pretty silly!!) and I normally wake up with them on my pillow case somewhere.
Honestly, I have been loving this product. I have been using it for the past three weeks or so and I use around two masks a week. The masks are made up of a gel-like material that is cooling and gentle with the skin. I have acne-prone and sensitive skin, and this product has not affected or bothered my face at all!
I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a product that hydrates and lightens up dark eye circles, regardless of age and skin type. Each morning after I have used this product, I wake up and feel that my skin under my eyes is more hydrated and looks brighter. My skin feels more refreshed and I look more awake than I feel, and I am ready to tackle another day!
Here is a link to the product so you can try it for yourself! Hope you all enjoyed this post!
