With thousands upon thousands of beauty care products out there, it can become a seriously daunting task trying to sift through the aggressive marketing schemes, the alluring money back guarantees, and the misguided celebrity endorsements, to find something that actually (might) work. So needless to say, I was intrigued to stumble onto a product whose main claim, was that of a cherished family recipe, passed down through generations, for – wait for it – 200 years! VII code, also known as the “Ageless Mystery” in 18th century Austria, was said to have been Queen Josephine’s best kept secret (as in, the wife of the infamous Napoleon himself). With a powerful mix of highly coveted ingredients, such as chamomile, jojoba seed oil, apricot kernel oil, sea buckthorn oil, avocado, grape seed oil, seaweed, elderberry and white tea, I was naturally compelled to give it a try.
VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for Dark Circles:
These simple to use under-eye pads are designed to help increase blood flow, increase lymphatic circulation, and boost oxygen intake, in order to combat wrinkles and over-pigmentation (aka. those pesky dark circles that make us look tired, even after a seemingly good night’s sleep). The result is ultimately smoother and more visibly plumped skin. The mask comes in a box-set of 6 pairs, and they recommend using it 2-3 times per week for best results (with a full-course treatment consisting of 3 boxes, or 18 combined uses). The mask should be applied before bed to clean, dry skin, and can be worn for up to 8 hours; simple spa therapy while you sleep. Within moments of applying the pads, I felt a cool and tingly and refreshing sensation, and noticed the benefits after just one use. Even as someone who isn’t a habitual mask user, I will definitely keep these on hand as a great last minute solution, like when you have an event the next day and just need a little something extra to guarantee that ‘beauty rest’.
