I am super excited about today's post and frankly, I was tempted to post my review after one week of testing but I persevered and tested for almost a month. Initially I was very hesitant to stop using Paula's Choice Resist Skin Firming Skin Minimizer* (reviewed here) on my under eye area but a girl got to do what she has got to do, right?
VIIcode is not new to me as I had the opportunity to test their oxygen eye mask (reviewed here) which I absolutely love so when they reached out again offering another collaboration, there's no way in hell I could resist. I was kindly sent VIIcode 'T2' Oxygen Eye Cream* and I'm going to go straight to the point, I freaking love this!
The eye cream is housed in a heavy plastic jar and came in a soft faux leather pouch which gave the impression of luxury. I know eye cream in a jar is a sticky point for many of us and frankly, I am not the biggest fan of it myself but when something looks as luxe as this, I honestly can't complain much.
FROM THE BRAND:
"The exclusive "T2" stone mortar extraction process completely revolutionizes conventional skin care with breakthrough creative self-repairing and innovative self-healing that instantly activates the skin's natural repair system, stimulating new self-healing energy to restore damaged cells surrounding the eyes to fade away signs of aging and revitalize and protect skin around the eyes."
Inside there's a crescent moon shaped spatula attached on top of the lid so you can use that to scoop out the amount needed without contaminating the rest of the eye cream. It's suggested to use the spatula for eye massage and all that jazz but frankly, I tried it only twice and then buh-bye massage because I personally feel that it's gimmicky and this mama has no time for gimmicks.
This scentless eye cream has lightweight texture and sinks in quickly. The results are almost instantaneous; I could see my eye areas look more refreshed and radiant as soon as the product sank in. I also noticed my concealer goes on smoothly on top of this eye cream and there was no creasing. Win!
VIIcode was kind enough to send me a box of their famous Oxygen Eye Mask* so I could test both products together for best results. I have been using the eye cream twice a day and eye mask only once a week and my eye areas are looking fresh, well rested and dare I say radiant and glowing? I even noticed that the deep lines under and at the corner of my eyes are not as obvious anymore whenever I smile.
Here's the catch, while I sing high praises and highly recommend both products, they are eye watering pricey or at least for me they are. The eye cream is retailing for $199.00USD and the eye mask is currently on sale for $54.99USD so it's not for the faint hearted. If you can splurge then I highly encourage for you to give VIIcode 'T2' Oxygen eye cream* and Eye Mask* a try, your eyes will thank you.
