Now, I feel the need to preface this post with: I have VERY sensitive eyes. I was honestly super skeptical of this product when I first received it and I was really nervous to try it, for fear that it would irritate my eyes, as so many other eye creams do.
WHAT VIICODE SAYS:
VIIcode T2 Oxygen Eye Cream uses an “exclusive ‘T2’stone mortar extraction process”, which facilitates the healing and regeneration of damaged skin cells near the eyes by protecting this delicate area of the face and by fading away the first visible signs of aging (sounds pretty good to me!).
– Instantly feel moisturized and youthful.
– Minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
– Absorbs well with no residue.
The eye cream (O3.0) alone retails for $99, and you receive 5ML of product.
You can also purchase the eye cream (O2.5) in a set for $199 and receive a 15ML bottle, and 2 O2M Oxygen Eye Mask Pads for overnight… OR you can go big or go home and get the 15ML bottle (O3.0) with the Eye Mask Pads for $284.
You also always receive free shipping on each purchase.
Let’s get into the review.
VIIcode (pronounced “vee-two”) uses what they call a “stone mortar extraction process”, infusing fresh natural ingredients and elements essential to the human body.
- Evening Primrose – boosts blood circulation and smooths wrinkles around eyes.
- Avocado – delivers antioxidant carotenoids like alpha-carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein (promote eye/vision health).
- Elderberry – antioxidants to maintain glowing younger skin (has skin soothing effects).
- Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) – reduce dryness and restore suppleness (anti-inflammatory).
I like the packing and shape of this product, it’s a sturdy plastic bottle, and it comes in a small drawstring bag with a small tag on the outside describing the product and ingredients. In the top of the lid is a small crescent-shaped plastic piece which I use as a spatula and it is how you first apply the cream to the skin.
Part of me wishes that the bottle itself was glass, however I do think that it looks luxurious and I like the way it looks sitting on my bathroom counter next to my other high-end skincare products.
The product itself is a white cream formula, not a gel (which I prefer). I find that gel formulas or “cooling” products make my eyes sensitive and water incessantly. Though the formula appears thick, it is lightweight once applied to the skin, and feels very moisturizing. It doesn’t have a strong fragrance, which I appreciate. I can’t handle skincare products with a strong fragrance.
APPLICATION + HOW I USE IT
I use the eye cream in the morning before applying my makeup, and in the evening before bed after I complete my nighttime skincare routine.
- I use the crescent-shaped activation strip (which is unique to this product) that comes in the lid as a massage tool. I glide the strip around my eye area to smooth and refresh the skin before applying the eye cream itself.
- I then use the strip as a spatula ( rather than dipping my fingers into the jar), and apply a tiny amount to each under-eye area (a little goes a long way).
- I then use my ring finger to gently pat and massage into the skin.
I used this product consistently morning and night for about three weeks and I honestly like this eye cream way more than I thought I would. It hydrates, doesn’t irritate my sensitive eye area (which is a HUGE plus for me), is easy to apply, and besides the faint-worthy price tag, I have no complaints whatsoever. My eye area feels hydrated, and the cream does not interfere with my makeup application in the mornings.
As far as the claims made about this product on the website, I would agree that the product blends in easily with no greasy residue and my under-eye area instantly feels moisturized without being weighted down. I like the eye cream have moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. If your main concern is hydration and anti-aging, or if you have sensitive eyes like me, I think you’ll really enjoy this product. Overall, I give it two thumps up.
Eventually I would love to get my hands on some of their eye masks that do help more with puffiness and dark circles, and would use those in conjunction with the eye cream.
