Travel Tip 101: Love the Skin You’re In

Traveling can be one of the most exhilarating experiences, but also one of the most tiring. My mentality, “I don’t know if I’ll ever get to come back to this place, so I have to make the most of it,” often puts me in positions where I am jam-packing a lot into a day. Sleep becomes the lowest priority on the list.

Now repeat this seven to twelve days in a row… The lack of beauty rest catches up with you. Looking at yourself in the mirror is out of the question because you look more like Cruella de Vil than your fabulous, recognizable self.

I don’t know about you, but my go-go-go personality simply doesn’t have the time for beauty masks or eye creams during the day. I often look like I’ve just ran a marathon from the products leaving an oily residue on my face, and end up feeling self-conscious about getting my picture taken because of the shine. It’s one thing to power through exhaustion to make it to La Sagrada Familia or the Grand Canyon, but another to look tired doing so. Pictures last a lifetime!

At least, that was me until about two weeks ago when I found the perfect way to hydrate my skin and get rid of those dark circles.

No more sheet masks that don’t even stick to your face or clay masks that are a pain to get off.


I give you VIIcode – a gel-like eye mask that stays on for dear life as you sleep, offers a soothing sensation and leaves zero residue behind.

My favorite feature of this 8-hour treatment is it is easy to apply and remove, and it doesn’t leave a mess nor stain your sheets. I also loved the option of wearing it for 2-4 hours during the day if the overnight option was too uncomfortable.

If you’re a skeptic, know that I am one of you. I thought sleeping with gel on my face would be uncomfortable, and that results would not be obvious. VIIcode proved me wrong. I woke up feeling refreshed and energized, ready to take one a new adventure a world away from home.


Traveling shouldn’t involve silly worries. Want to give this easy-to-travel, instant result mask a try? Head on over to
