Bright Eyes, Thick Thighs

Hi, friends!

Bright eyes? Yes, please! If you are looking for the best thing for making your eyes bright and feeling great, I have the thing for you. Does this give off any Stefon from SNL vibes? I hope so! Granted, we don’t have any Human Kites, Human Parking Cones, or Human DVRS, but I do have a tip on how to get brightened under eyes and it begins with the VII Code Oxygen Masks!

eye mask

I was sent the VII Code Oxygen Masks that are meant to brighten and hydrate your under eyes and make them feel like new. One of the things that I love about these masks is that they can be worn for up to 8 hours (or 2-4 if you don’t have the time for 8 hours!) and the gel pads mean that they don’t slide off of your face. I roll around a lot in my sleep and one of the pads actually stayed on my face in the 8 hours that I slept. And yes, you read that correctly. One pad somehow ended up coming off of my face and stuck to a pillow. It took me a while to find it the next morning when I woke up in a state of confusion!

Best Masks Ever?

The gel also has a cooling effect so it really is a treatment for your eyes. The masks can also be placed in the fridge to get an extra boost of cooling, which will brighten and will help with any puffiness! Another trick that I use to help with eye puffiness is taking two spoons and putting them on my under eyes for a little bit. The coolness is so refreshing and my eyes feel so much better after using it. The masks additionally smell amazing! It reminds me of a face powder I used to use and I love it.

Mask

The masks feel great and they fit my eye shape perfectly. Some masks are so uncomfortable to wear but the VII Code Oxygen Masks contour to your eye shape.  The gel also makes these masks special because the gel is the key to softening your skin and making you eyes look younger and rejuvenated. The fine lines and wrinkles in your skin under your eyes are also going to look better and tighter, so these Oxygen Masks really do so much for your skin. And did I mention that they smell amazing? Because they smell so good!

(Also, I wore these backwards by accident when I took this photo! The tapered side goes pointing toward your inner corner!)

The masks retail for $55 and you get 6 gel eye masks in a pack. I use the masks one to two times per week or when I have an event to go to the next day. If I don’t have 8 hours where I can wear the masks, I will just wear them for around 3 hours and it still helps my eyes look brighter!

VII Code also has eye masks for dark circles (which I need!) and a special oxygen eye cream. Their focus with providing oxygen to the skin has helped them create a targeted skincare line that helps people maintain a glowing complexion and have hydrated and younger-looking skin.

I hope you liked today’s post and if you know someone who could benefit from VII Code’s brightening masks, please send them this post or share it on social media! The sharing buttons are below!

Perfectly Posh Review

Hello everyone and welcome back to Glitz & Glitter!

Last week I was sent a package of samples from Perfectly Posh and I took the week to try them out! The absolutely lovely Brandy from Perfectly Posh sent me the products and she has been an absolute dream to work with! All of her links will be below and there are a few deals for you guys, too! Stick around to the end to see them!

Top Row: (black circle containers) Apricots Overnight, Honey Honey lotion, Rio scrub, Dive In Chunk Bath Bar, Gender Bender Chunk Bath Bar. Bottom Row: Night & Day facial moisturizer, Pineapple Pick Me Up face mask, Skindelicious Snarky Butter, Bare It All Micellar Tonic, Rico Guave Chunk Bath Bar, Field Better Soon Chunk Bath Bar.

I was so excited to try out these products that I took pictures of them right after I opened the package! When I took a shower a few hours later, I tried out using the Chunk Dive In bath bar. It has been a week later and I am still using it! I love this soap bar so much and I feel super clean after using it in the shower. The product description says “This sea spray and musky amber bath bar moisturizes skin with argan oil and algae extract, while kaolin gives you  a deep clean.” Dive In is definitely one of my favorite products from the bundle of samples that I was sent!

After I got out of the shower, I washed my face and tried out the Pineapple Pick Me Up face mask and the Night & Day Natural Facial Moisturizer. The mask is packed with pineapple scent and made me feel like I should have been sitting on the patio of a paradise resort! Ten minutes later, I washed off the mask and applied the Night & Day moisturizer. The moisturizer smells amazing and reminds me of something medicinal in a natural way, if that makes any sense. The moisturizer has organic olive oil, lavender, and aloe vera, and I love the way they combine. Both of the products I adored and I will certainly use again!

I used the Rio scrub and the Snarky Butter products together and my hands have never been so soft! This product combo will be absolutely amazing in the winter time to keep your hands super soft and supple!

L to R: Apricots Overnight, Honey Honey, Rio scrub.

Honey Honey lotion smells so good! I just put some on, actually. Honey Honey reminds me of two things: lemon (yellow) Starbursts and Chuck from Pushing Daisies. It is sweet, citrusy, and the best summer scent! It is staying on my desk until I run out of it!

Apricots Overnight….what can I say about this product other than it is my favorite and I am so heartbroken that I used up almost all of it! Apricots Overnight smells so good and I can’t get enough of it! I truly think that my skin has improved after using this product, too, so that is a major plus! You are supposed to apply Apricots Overnight and let the moisturizing mask do its work so you will wake up with soft skin, and it works! I love this product and I plan on buying the full size product soon!

The Bare It All micellar tonic was the first micellar water type product that I had ever used. What I loved the most about this product is that I could just apply it to a cotton ball and swipe it over my face to cleanse and remove makeup, and that was it! No washing or extra cleanser required! If you are a busy and on-the-go kind of person, this product is great for you!

Gender Bender is another one of my favorites! I have used this for the past two days in the shower and I can’t get enough of it! “Detoxing charcoal gives you a deep clean. Plus palm oil and shea butter leave your skin soft with a citrus and woodsy amber scent.” Gender Bender is great for guys or gals. The woodsy scent is masculine but the citrus scent adds hints of femininity, creating the perfect blend. I have always loved cologne and other masculine directed body washes, so Gender Bender quickly became one of my favorites!

Field Better Soon is a lovely lavender soap that I have actually been using to wash my face in the morning and at night. It’s light and summery scent is great for my face and it isn’t drying, so I have had no problems with using it as a face wash. I do recommend using a moisturizer afterward so your skin is perfectly soft!

Rico Guave is a tropical beach party in a bar of soap! It’s fun and summertime scent is absolutely glorious and I can’t get enough of it! The collection of Chunk Bath Bars I was sent are all amazing and I hope you give them a try!

I can’t wait for the fall/winter collection to arrive! Perfectly Posh is a great company and with friendly representatives like Brandy, you won’t want to stay away from their products!
