I’m in New York! The night before I fly, I can’t get a wink of sleep. Then I get on a plane, and I can’t get a wink of sleep on the plane! My flight to New York was a five hour plane ride, and without sleep, I was exhausted. One of the drawbacks to lack of sleep, and exhaustion, is puffy eyes accompanied by dark circles. Ugh!

My favorite way to combat tired, puffy eyes, and dark circles, while fighting fine lines, is to wear an eye mask. I have tried several eye masks, and none of them seem to work. When VII Code sent me their eye mask to try, I was hooked! It actually reduced my puffy eyes, and dark circles! My skin looks smoother too. Love that!

The VII Code overnight eye mask is really easy to use. The mask uses pads instead of being in a jar you have to stick your finger into in order apply. The pads are packaged in convenient trays which keep them nice, flat, and ready to use. After you wash your face, you simply take the pads from the tray, peel off the protective plastic, and apply. It’s so easy! They feel cold when you first apply them, and then the pads feel comfortable and are easy to wear. I’m hooked!

VIIcode eye mask is different from other sheet masks, you can wear them for 8 hours at night. The best time to wear them is while you are sleeping. I wore them overnight the first night in my hotel and my eyes loved it!

This overnight eye mask by VII Code is a must-have for travel. It fixed my tired, sleep-deprived eyes and refreshed me for the morning. Now, I am ready to take on New York!

You can find the VII Code O2M oxygen eye mask, which you can wear overnight, online here.

Did you know bareMinerals made skin care? I had no idea. I always thought they were all about mineral makeup! I was thrilled when bareMinerals reached out and sent me samples of their newest skin care collection to test out. The new bareMinerals Ageless Genius skin care collection aims to soften skin while fighting visible signs of aging. Love this!

The bareMinerals Ageless Genius skin care collection contains Vitamin A and botanical extracts which promise to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and expression lines, smooth texture, and improve firmness and elasticity.

Although I am over forty, I don’t consider my neck to show signs of aging. (maybe I live in a dream-world?) So when I tested out the neck cream, I was happy with the soft, and moisturized effect the cream left without leaving a greasy film, or clogging my pores. My neck is happy!

Now when it comes to my eyes. . .there are quite a few lines from all of the laughing and smiling I have done in my life. I’m not sure why people call these lines crows-feet; they really are happy lines! The bareMinerals Ageless Genius eye cream is doing a great job adding moisture without clogging pores around my eye area. This cream does a great job reducing puffiness, and dark circles under my eyes; which I have had quite a bit of lately due to my current battle with Influenza.

All in all, the new bareMinerals Ageless Genius skin care collection does a great job protecting skin from aging, and leaving it soft. I am a huge fan!

The new bareMinerals Ageless Genius skin care collection is fabulous for fighting the aging process. You can find the collection online here.

Perricone MD Cold Plasma review

products c/o Perricone MD: Perricone MD Cold Plasma plus face cream / Perricone MD Cold Plasma plus eye cream

Perricone MD Cold Plasma plus face cream and eye cream are new, more powerful versions of Perricone MD’s Cold Plasma creams. The Cold Plasma plus collection is said to improve loss of radiance, even out texture, even out skin tone, held mend discoloration, reduce redness, reduce enlarged pores, reduce fine line and wrinkles, as well as improve firmness.

As a GenX, Mother of three, my skin has taken a beating over my lifetime. I don’t believe in plastic surgery; but what I do believe in, is taking care of your skin, using masks, and using high quality skin care products to help combat the aging process.

My skin has an uneven tone on the bridge of my nose from years of sun exposure. I have enlarged pores in my T-Zone, and I am just starting to get fine line around my eyes, my mouth, and on my forehead. Anything I can do to combat these issues, I will do!

Perricone MD sent me their Cold Plasma plus face cream and eye cream to test; and boy am I hooked! I have been using these two products for only two weeks, and I already notice firmness in my skin. The lines which have been developing from the edges of my nose to my mouth have been reduced. I have also noticed the lines reaching across my forehead have been reduced. This face cream actually works! I wish I was able to get before and after photos of my skin, but my camera doesn’t pick up the fine lines in my face; so you will have to trust my word!

The Perricone MD Cold Plasma plus face cream and eye cream collection is lightweight, which is amazing! Nothing is worse then using a face cream which leaves a film on your skin, or clogs your pores. I am acne prone, so using a lightweight cream which absorbs into the skin, as opposed to sitting on top of it, is a must-have! Love that about Perricone MD products!

Cold Plasma plus by Perricone MD contains powerful ingredients which help fight the again process such as, Copper Tripeptides, Vitamin C Ester, and Omegas 3, 6, and 9.

Moving forward, I am using the Perricone MD Cold Plasma plus face and eye creams as my nighttime routine. You can see my daytime routine here. I love what these products are doing for my skin, and I can’t wait to see them continue to combat the aging process!

You can find the Perricone MD Cold Plasma plus collection online here.
