Aging is a part of life, and I didn’t start thinking about the process until I hit thirty this past March. I’ve always been into skincare but, one step I knew I needed to pay more attention to were my eyes. The eyes are a very delicate area that will begin to show signs of aging as we grow older. So, I was so excited when Elle, from VIIcode reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try out a product from the line.

I was sent the 02M Oxygen Eye Mask For All Night Repair which retails for $55.00 USD for 6 treatments. When used as directed, the eye masks are supposed to reduce signs of aging, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and best of all moisture and brighten for a more refreshing look.

When I received my box, I noticed that it was an eight-hour treatment which worried me because I didn’t think I could sleep all night with them on but, to my surprise they stayed on! Not only did they stay on but, I didn’t even have an issue sleeping. After the first use I woke up and looked instantly refreshed. I normally wakeup with puffy eyes but, it wasn’t the case when I used the eye masks.

The top image is before I applied the eyes masks. When you look at the image you can see a little puffiness, and darkness below my eyes. I applied the eye masks and went to sleep. You can wear the eye treatments for up to 8 hours but, I wore mine for six because I had to get up early for work. When I removed the eye masks I was completely surprised at the results after just one use. There was no puffiness, dullness and my eyes looks so much brighter. With six treatments I was able to test out the product for three weeks (2x/week) and with consistent and proper use I was able to see a dramatic change in my overall appearance. Life is stressful and sometimes it can show all over our face so it’s nice to know there are products out there that can help reduce the signs.

I remember last October when I started my first niche Instagram account dedicated to my love of skincare. I was new and had no idea of what would come from starting an account dedicated to skincare products, routines, and of course meeting like-minded individuals. I was in my apartment gym with my husband working out but also getting easily distracted. I logged into my account and noticed a message from someone I didn’t know. At first, I though it was just one of the daily pervs trying to slip into my DM’s but, NOPE! that wasn’t the case with this special message. It was from Sam, the creator of Sam’s Soulution. He was reaching out to see if I was interested in trying out a few products from his line with no strings attached. I was at a loss of words and genuinely felt special.

Before I accepted I did my research to make sure Sam’s products were a good fit for me. I’m not the type of person that accepts products just to get freebies. It’s not helpful to the owner/creator in anyway plus it’s just a waste of product. After reading Sam’s story and learning about how he’s trying to help people transitions to more pure/natural ingredients I was hooked. I believed he was passionate and the best person to help me get a better understanding of what I was putting on my skin. With that being said, I accepted his offer and within a couple weeks I checked my mail and saw the cutest package with so many goodies.

All I have to say is he created some amazing products.

Revitalizing Face Spritz – $12.00 USD is affordable, and a great hydrating product.I carried this with me everywhere I went and when I felt my skin needed a boost all I had to do was take it out of my bag and spray.

Rose Water Face Spritz – $12.00 USD is a holy grail for me! It’s the best for soothing and calming the skin. I live in Austin, TX (hot & humid) and two sprays of this when I’m outside and my skin looks amazing. I’ve noticed the most calming sensations around my cheeks and nose.

Below are some of my favorites

Island Butter $20.00 USD This is my favorite product! This body butter is unbelievable. I remember when I was sitting in my living room and applied the product all over my legs and was blown away by how fast it absorbed into my skin, and how it made my legs look radiant and healthy. My legs were soft and smelled so good and there was no greasiness. I highly recommend this if you love to wear shorts/skirts. Your legs will look amazing!!

I haven’t done a #texturetuesday in a long time and I decided to dedicate today’s to @samssoulutions because he is incredibly sweet and created the most amazing body cream. The name is Island Butter and it’s a total treat. It melts onto the skin and absorbs so quick. It’s not sticky at all not mention full of antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. One thing I absolutely love about Sam’s products is that they are handcrafted and created with natural ingredients Ingredients: Mango Butter, Kokum Butter*shea butter, Sweet Almond oil, *Coconut Oil, Arrowroot Powder, Vitamin E, Lotus Flower Extract, Sweet Orange Oil, Watermelon(100% natural) Fragrance Oil. *= certified organic ingredient

Regenerating Serum $30.00 USD I’m still only a few weeks into using this product but, I had to write about it because it is that good and I have a feeling this product is going to be loved by so many. Not only are Sam’s products, plant based, vegan, and hand crafted but, they deliver. What I’ve noticed most about this serum is that it instantly brightened my skin. I’ve spent tons of money on serums and none compare to this.

 

Sam, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity of trying out some of your wonder products. I love your passion, drive and can’t wait to see what the future holds for Sam’s Soulutions.

xoxo
