I was sent a jar of 60 to test and I can’t get enough of them. They are probably the easiest eye pad I’ve ever used since there’s nothing to it when using them. 1. Take a pad out of the jar. 2. Put it on under your eyes 3. Leave it on for 10 minutes or however long you want. 1,2,3. ABC. You are done and looking refreshed.

Actually I cheat and add an extra step –  I cut the pad in half since the reason I’m using this is for my undereye area although it nourishes my skin too. But by cutting it in half I’m getting it closer to my eye and I’m able to make this jar of 60 last twice as long.

REPECHAGE EYE RESCUE PADS contain seaweed and natural tea extracts. The ingredients of these pads are terrific. These are the eye pads I like to use early in the morning since they help to depuff my undereye circles and they are the eye pad I like to use before going out with friends in the evening. In the morning I’ll apply right after my shower while I’m taking my vitamins, trying to make reason with my hair. In the evening I love that they give a cooling sensation while replenishing moisture. I can even do this over my foundation/concealer and after just pat it with my finger to resmooth. These are not sticky or gooey. They contain a serum that is light yet effective.

Looking for a different kind of eye mask? Try VIIcode Oxygen Mask

VIIcode Oxygen Mask

VIIcode Oxygen Mask

Using an eye mask is the most expedient way to make a difference on the skin around your eyes. It’s a quick fix usually that makes us look more refreshed and ready to take on the world. But what if you don’t want just a quick fix but something that will last longer? That’s where VIIcode Oxygen Mask comes in.

VIIcode has a long history starting in the 1800’s but the ingredients and technology in their VIICode O2M Oxygen Mask is current for the 2000’s. Their story is interesting and contains portions that are important to us. “In 1993 VIIcode joined Conservation International (CI) to preserve the earth’s natural heritage, protect global biodiversity, and prove that human civilization can live in harmony with nature.”

I was sent a box of their VII O2M Oxygen Mask which is the first overnight mask I’ve tried for my eyes. As someone who suffers from insomnia I was more than a bit worried about how I’d react to a mask that I’d be wearing throughout the night. But as someone who feels that my eye area is the most delicate and precious to having a youthful appearance, I was gung ho to try this.

Inside each box of VIIcode O2M Oxygen Masks are 6 treatment packages. It’s suggested to use these 2 -3 times a week. For a full treatment they also recommend using three boxes but I found a difference using just this one box.

Application is easy and not unusual at all. The most important part is where you apply the masks since you need to be able to close your eyes comfortably without any pinching or discomfort. I found I had to place them a little lower than I would with a short time mask.

The first night I wore them I did have to move them once in bed. I’d have loved to get them up close under my lower lashes but that wasn’t a possibility. While it did take me longer to fall asleep that night, I happily slept through the night without these bothering me at all. I was anxious to see how I looked after the 8 hours were complete.

My after picture was taken about an hour after I removed the masks since I wasn’t fully awake when I woke to take them off. I went back to sleep for an hour and then took the photo. This is after one use and I saw a difference that lasted throughout the next two days. My skin was softer and less lined. A lot of the puffiness was gone and I really didn’t look as dark under my eyes.

What I like most about VIIcode Oxygen Mask is that I’m getting sustained skin care. It contains all all the essential vitamins, antioxidants, botanicals, peptides and essential fatty acids that my eyes need to keep them looking brighter. That long term dose of serum is hydrating to my under eye area making it appear less lined.

While these are recommended for 8 hours of nighttime use, I’ve also used them during the day. When I’m staying home all day to work on the blog or things around my house I’ve worn them instead of wearing them at night. Once on they stay on and don’t move around. I can do whatever I want without worrying about slipping and sliding. The serum is contained and at work throughout the time I’m wearing them.

Sublime Beauty Advanced Eye Gel, the Aging Younger one

Sublime Beauty®

AGE YOUNGER!

I love this tagline for Sublime Beauty. Yes I’d love to age younger and I’m sure that most of you above a certain number (ahem 40, 45, 50??) must be loving on that tagline too.

I also love the name of the Sublime Beauty eye gel that was sent for review: Face Whisperer® Advanced Eye Gel. This is just one product in their Face Whisperer line and is their newest product. The others are a Day Cream, Night Cream and Neck & Decollete Cream. All products that are Face Whisperer are meant to

1) Reduce Wrinkles
2) Boost Collagen
3) Moisturize & Hydrate
4) Soothe & Heal (including dark circles & bags under eyes)

Face Whisperer® Advanced Eye Gel

Face Whisperer® Advanced Eye Gel

The Face Whisperer® Advanced Eye Gel contains select ingredients like Matrixyl®, Eyeliss® and Haloxyl®. According to Sublime Beauty these wonder ingredients were created in France and are clinically tested.

The eye gel is recommended to be used twice a day to help with dark circles, bags and wrinkles. Here’s one of their before and after pictures:

What I like best about Sublime Beauty’s Advanced Eye Gel is the soothing coolness I get from this gel. When you first pump it out it looks watery. Don’t be fooled by that, it’s just that it’s lightweight. It uses these high powered ingredients to take away the negative and emphasize the positive. We all want younger looking eyes, we all want any discoloration under our eyes GONE, and we all want to reduce bags and wrinkles. Since Sublime Beauty’s Face Whisperer Advanced Eye Gel does all that then we all want this eye gel. Read more about it on Sublime Beauty’s website, then go to Amazon where they sell this for $42.99.

You too can Age Younger – I sure want that and this eye gel helps! — Marcia

Biobliss Anti-Wrinkle Patch for Eyes – a vacation in a package

You’ve read about Biobliss on Beauty Info Zone before but not much about the Biobliss Under Eye Patch, officially called BIOBLISS Anti-Wrinkle Patch for Eyes. The original Biobliss was a patch for your forehead that was compared to acting like topical botox. They’ve since added more products like this Under Eye Patch. I received a sample package of this for review and gave you a hint in my last Makeup Wars (Spa) article.

What’s so interesting to me about this Biobliss Anti-Wrinkle Patch is that it is a transdermal system that works in a similar way to a nicotine or estrogen patch. You activate the system by pressing on the circular button within the patch and it safely releases a micro-current with anti-aging ingredients deeper into the skin.

It’s not a wet system like many I’ve tried and it doesn’t dry down at all. The patch itself is sort of thick and at first I was sure it would be uncomfortable but I was quickly proven wrong. You place it under your eyes and press hard to seal the edges. I don’t know if I was supposed to press the circular button first but I didn’t. Once it was comfortable on my eyes I just pressed on the circle and went off to do my thing. I could comfortably wear my glasses and do just about anything I wanted around my house. You know they are on, they aren’t invisible and you can feel them. But they aren’t uncomfortable.

biobliss ingredients

Biobliss patches contain proven ingredients that are safe and effective. Without boring you here’s a little about each of these:

-Hyaluronan promotes collagen and enhances tissue repair. We naturally produce less of this as we age and our skin isn’t able to hold the same moisture. Being rich in hyaluronan the patch gently infuses it to enhance hydration.

-Peptides stimulate the layers in our skin to increase collagen synthesis. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

-Moroccan Argan fruit extract is the oil from the kernel of the Argan fruit tree. This too has wrinkle reducing effects and has demonstrated its skin tightening results.

-Vitamin B5 is a valuable antioxidant for your body. It’s naturally contained in many food items like eggs, nuts, whole grains, legumes and fish. But it can also be applied topically for absorption by the skin to promote moisture uptake and hydration.

biobliss on bothNow for my results!! If you read my Makeup Wars Spa Day review then you know this was part of my relaxing and wonderful day. The directions say that you can leave the Biobliss Anti-Wrinkle Patch on for 30 minutes but I was so relaxed that I left it on for almost an hour. Since they are one time use only I wanted to get the most out of this as possible. Plus my eyes had been puffy and I was eager to see how they’d help with that problem.

Here’s the before:

Here’s the after:

Right eye after

After

I noticed a big difference when looking in the mirror that entire day and the results lasted me for 3 days. Biobliss recommends using their serum after but I just put on my Fiafini eye cream and it felt wonderful. A set of 4 sells for $72 on the Biobliss website and ships for free. I did see a single sold for $22 on amazon.com if you wanted to try it out. The minute I start fretting about forehead wrinkles I’m going to get the Anti-Wrinkle Patch for Forehead. Have your own spa day and remember to use an eye mask like this Biobliss one. You’ll love how you look and feel! — Marcia
