VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask

Intial Thoughts of VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask

My first thoughts on the product was how much I love their very professional silver packaging. I like the creativity of the picture tearing away wrinkles in the box photograph. I immediately liked how the gel of the eye masks felt on my skin. The cooling sensation is so relaxing to me that it helps me fall asleep!

Packaging

Their packaging box came with individual slits for the aluminum packets. I love the shiny silver packaging for the eyemasks! Inside the pouch is a plastic holder for the eye masks. Attached to the back of each mask is a piece of plastic to help keep the gel fresh.

Gel-Material

This VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask is made out of a Gel-like material. It goes on your eyes cool and smells slightly like pine-cones and peppermint which I enjoyed. The eye pads are made in Germany and the Gel Efficacy is made in USA.

Ingredients

Glycerin: Also called glycerol or glycerine, glycerin is present in all natural lipids (fats), whether animal or vegetable. It can be derived from natural substances by hydrolysis of fats and by fermentation of sugars; it also can be synthetically manufactured. Glycerin is a skin-replenishing and restoring ingredient, meaning it is a substance found naturally in skin. In that respect it is one of the many substances in skin that helps maintain a healthy look and feel, defending against dryness. When combined with other ingredients it can be excellent for helping replenish skin.

Carbomer: Group of synthetic texture enhancers used primarily to create gel-like formulations.

Cellulose: Primary fiber component of plants. Used in cosmetics as a thickening agent and to bind other ingredients together.

Tetrasodium EDTA: Chelating agent used to prevent minerals present in formulations from bonding to other ingredients

Allantoin: By-product of uric acid extracted from urea and considered an effective skin-soothing and skin-conditioning agent. Allantoin occurs naturally in the body. It can be extracted from plants (comfrey, chamomile) or made synthetically—the most common method for inclusion in cosmetics where it’s used in concentrations upwards of 2%.

Aloe Barbadensis:  Aloe vera (also listed by its Latin name of aloe barbadenis) is a commonly used plant extract that has soothing properties, antioxidant qualities, and serves as a hydrating agent for skin due to its polysaccharide and sterol content.

Lavandula Angustifolia: Widely used plant that’s a member of the mint family. May be listed by its Latin names Lavandula angustifolia or Lavandula officinalis. Primarily a fragrance ingredient, it may have beneficial properties for skin but is also a potential sensitizer due to its fragrance components.

Methlparaben:  Categorized in the group of preservatives.

Propylparaben: Categorized in the group of preservatives.

SmartQ10 Aqua: ingridient special to this product. Information not found online. Will update when found.

Algin: In cosmetics, algae act as thickening agents, water-binding agents, antioxidants, and possible skin sensitizers. Some forms of algae contain proteins, vitamin A, sugar, starch, vitamin B1, iron, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, and calcium. Most of these are beneficial for skin, as emollients, soothing agents, or antioxidants. Some can even be helpful for improving the appearance of aging skin.

Cellulose Gum: Any of various fibrous substances derived from plants. Cellulose gum is a natural ingredient that is most often used as a thickener but also used as a film-forming agent.

Citric Acid: Extract derived from citrus fruits and used primarily in small amounts to adjust the pH of products to prevent them from being too alkaline. Also, Citric Acid can help exfoliate skin.

Sodium PCA: Natural component of skin, PCA (pyrrolidone carboxylic acid) is also a very good hydrating agent and skin-replenishing ingredient.

Butylene Glycol:  Commonly-used ingredient that has multiple functions in cosmetics, including as a texture enhancer.

y-PGA: ingridient special to this product. Information not found online. Will update when found.

Sodium Hyaluronate: Salt form of skin-replenishing ingredient hyaluronic acid.

Vitamin E:  Vitamin E occurs naturally in human skin, but can become depleted due to constant environmental exposure in the absence of sun protection.

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate: Stable, water-soluble form of vitamin C that functions as an antioxidant and is potentially effective for brightening an uneven skin tone and can influence factors linked to breakouts.

Ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol Maganese Chloride: ingridient special to this product. Information not found online. Will update when found.

How to Apply

The following steps demonstrate how to apply the mask. The eye mask applies twice or three times a week and three boxes a course of treatment.

Step One

Open bag along the perforated cut and remove the eye mask from the aluminum bag.

Step Two

Peel off the plastic back and gently press the mask around your eye in order to help the nutrients to absorb into the skin.

Step Three

Keep mask on for no more than 8 hours, preferably overnight, to get full brightening and hydrating effects.

Step Four

Remove the Oxygen Eye Mask from your skin and dispose of the used mask.

Conclusion of VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask

The eye masks go on very easily and stick to your skin very well at first. However, for me, they came off while I was sleeping sometime during the 8 hour period. Another small issue I had with the eye masks was that the cotton back irritated by eyes making them slightly itchy. Most noteworthy, I still really loved how they made my under eyes look the next day! Compared to other eye masks, this one is on the top of my list for getting rid of wrinkles and moisturizing. They have worked better than other masks because of the gel that they use and although they are expensive, they have a $2 sample that you can purchase on their site before you purchase a kit.

How to Purchase

VIIcode Oxygen Eye Mask sell for $55 and they offer free shipping and 100% satisfy guarantee. You can purchase it from the following link here or grab a sample for $2 here . Also, if you are not happy with your results than you can either get an exchange or refund.

How to Get Your Dream Job From Applying to Accepting

How to Get Your Dream Job

The Dream

What defines your dream job? Maybe it’s working for yourself or maybe you’ve dreamed of working for a company like Google who has an amazing culture or a cutting edge company like Tesla. Whatever company you are looking to pursue, this article has the tools for you to succeed!

How to Get Your Dream Job

The Application Process

Applying to Company Website

Apply directly to your dream job’s company website instead of using third party sites. This allows you to be directly in their database and helps you skip a step since they will require that you enter in your information before offering you the position.

Internal Referrals

Internal Referrals are a great way to get your foot in the door! Search around your college friend’s linkedin profiles and see where they are working. Write them an email expressing how you would like to work at their company and ask if they could give you an internal referral.

Recruiting Companies

If you are not opposed to the idea of being a contractor, reach out to a recruiting company. They will have established contacts at big name companies that you can leverage to get an interview. It might just be a short six month contract but, by having the experience and a name brand company on your resume it will only get easier to get where you want to go.

LinkedIn

Create a LinkedIn account and completely fill out your profile. Of course, be sure to follow your dream company on all social medias as well as LinkedIn. Research employees that work at your dream job on LinkedIn and spark up a conversation with a few people about how they enjoy working for the company. You could also ask about their daily tasks and company events.  Eventually ask for any recruitment contacts they would be willing to share with you. After you receive contact information for the recruiter, send an email with your resume attached and explain why it’s your dream job.

Resume and Self Promotion

Traditional or Modern Resume

The first step of a resume is to chose if you are going to do a traditional resume or a modern resume. A modern resume cultivates creativity and outside the box thinking. This could include designing an info-graphic (I use canva.com) or printing your resume on a medium other than paper like a folder, pamphlet, or something the recruiter can use like a notebook.

Resume Page Length

 Some believe you should have multiple pages, but I personally think you should fit it on one page and discuss other information during the interview when appropriate or add it in the cover letter. Clearances only cover the last ten years so I feel it’s safe to include only the last 10 years or last three positions you have held on your resume so that it can all fit on the page and is recent and relevant.

Information to Include on Resume:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Computer Skills
  • Projects Experience
  • Last Three Jobs Experience
  • Community Service and Clubs
Text Based Resume

Download the template for a text based file resume here. (Coming soon)

Cover Letter

Download this easy to fill out Example Cover Letter here. (coming soon )

Email Address

You will need a professional email address that displays your name.  You should not continue to use your school email since it could possibly be closed or shut down after graduation. A school email also could make you appear as if you are entry level and is not as easy to remember as your name at gmail.  This step is important because it one of many ways will be communicating with the recruiter. An example of a good email would be as follows: FirstnameLastname@gmail.com.

Email Signature Example

 Email Signature

For my email signature, as shown above, I coded it in HTML myself. However, there are many websites and services out there that are free or paid that you can utilize. I charge $10 for signatures, email me at kitstanwood@gmail.com.

What to include in an email signature:
  • Name
  • Position Title
  • Phone Number
  • Website
  • Social Medias

Personal Business Card

Information to Include on Personal Business Card:
  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone Number
  • Social Medias (LinkedIn)
  • Website Link

I ordered my high quality business cards with a smooth finish, rounded corners, and glossy text from Moo.com . Use my referral link for a discount on your first order : Moo Business Cards


Paperclip

Having a paperclip that’s in the shape of the company your applying to shows your invested, in the shape of your hobbies shows your personality, or one in the shape of a pet sparks possible conversation. If you do not have a particular company you are trying to work for, you could  find a paperclip for the position genre your applying for or field of work your interested in. For example, a computer paper clip for a technology position would be easy to use across many interviews. I suggest paper clipping your personal business card to your resume and handing it to your recruiter when you first sit down for the interview. You can grab these super cute barkclips here.

Website or Blog

You should start a blog, especially if your in between jobs or unemployed. It’s a great at way to give yourself a topic of discussion around what you have been doing with your time off. Most noteworthy, you can monetize your website or blog!! Having something to do and show for your unemployment time is priceless and will boost your confidence. Another great reason to have a blog, even if your employed, is that you create an “About Me” page where your interviewer can read more information about you such as hobbies, writing samples, technical skills, and of course adorable pictures of your pet.

Steps to Get your blog started

1. Domain Name

I use to use google domains but  Bluehost offers a free main name.

2. Hosting

Hosting your own websites this allows you to own all your own content without worrying about sites such as blogger or WordPress shutting your site down or using your content since they own it. Since they host your website for free they own your content and have rules against what you can post. Use my referral link for a special price for hosting Bluehost.com/track/kit Stanwood/ .

3. Create wordPress Account and Download WordPress

Create your WordPress account here and download WordPress from the following link here.

4. Pick a Template

WordPress has many free or paid templates you can choose from! I currently use a free layout at the time of writing this post, but I have plans to code my own site. If you are adventurous and want to learn HTML, I recommend going through freecodecamp.com. They are a non-profit online community that teaches you how to code in exchange for you working on projects for those in need.

5. One year Blog Schedule

Check out my project management blog schedule with over 250 lines of tasks to get started in the first year of blogging for guaranteed success here! Only $45! Email me kitstanwoodgmail.com

 The Interview

Congratulations on getting an interview! If you haven’t made it that far yet go try the above tips again. You are halfway there as they say! So let’s dive in to the juicy details. Plain and simple, You HAVE to stand out. This advice will be tough but it works! You are unique and have your own strong skills to offer. I look at interviewing like dating, it’s a two way street and if you don’t like them, I would not recommend taking the job unless it’s a 10-20% increase in salary. At that point you might as well get the experience, money and make the best of it that you can.

Exercise

Exercise will help alleviate stress and anxiety before an interview. It is also shown to help you think better and leave you performing better at work in the long run

Appearance

Women

Tops and Blazer

Tops should cover you up and be accompanied by a matching blazer.

Bottoms

It is best to wear a knee length skirt or pleated pants with either black or nude color panty hose.

Dress

Dresses should be knee length and the straps should be at least four fingers wide.

Shoes

I always suggest wearing heels to an interview if you can walk in them well. They are dressier then flats, however if you are very tall or are afraid of tripping in your heels then a pair of nice flats are fine.

Jewelry

General rules for wearing jewelry to an interview is to wear no more than 5 pieces. I would suggest wearing a nice watch (Im sporting a wooden watch by JORD in the above picture), a pair of stud earrings, and a ring such as your class ring if you have recently graduated, wedding band, or a club ring.

Men

Suit

If you do not own a suit, a jacket and matching dress pants would also be acceptable. Lastly, to top the suit off wear a matching tie.

Dress Shoes

Dress shoes include loafers, derbie and brogues.

Extras

It’s great idea to dress up your suit with a Class Ring if you have recently graduated, Cufflinks, and a Watch.

Leather Binder

Having a Lather Binder helps you hold copies of your resume, personal business cards, company business cards you receive, and a place to keep notes. I would suggest getting one from the college from which you graduated.  As a side note, you should always have five up to date copies of your resume with you, a notepad, and a pen to be able to take notes.

Notes

Taking notes is just a part of being a professional. The rest of your life you should be taking notes no matter what you are doing if it includes talking about business. The first great reason to take notes at an interview is to document specifics about benefits. Then later when they offer you the job you can send them the notes and ask them to formally agree to what they said in the interview to include it in the offer letter.

Interview Questions to Ask

1. Don’t have Generalized Questions

Bad Example: What are the daily tasks of the Business Analyst job?

Good Example: After an employee has gathered requirements , logged requirements, and created mock-ups what other responsibilities does this position entail?

If you have scripted questions, I suggest tailoring them to be more specific. If you as a vague question you could get a vague answer in return. Every question should be related to the position you are interviewing for, be open ended and you should be able to give examples to explain your question further. In the above example, I have taken out some tasks that I already know the position gives from reading the job description. You can find the job description online on the company’s website or you can ask the recruiter to send one to you. One scripted question that I feel is the exception is: “What is your company culture?”. A company that plays together works well together and synergies together.

Coffee Lifecycle

2. Ask About the Work Environment

This is a topic to bring up non-nonchalantly after the interview if it has gone well. One way of bringing this up would be to ask to see their facility and hopefully the kitchen will be included in this tour or else you may want to ask.  If they don’t provide good coffee or a quality break rooms, one could imply the company is not concerned about their employee’s comfort. To throw in some humor: Good coffee includes having the sugar you like, a decent machine with at least three flavors to chose from, and most importantly having liquid half and half or some sort of creamer that is available. That powder creamer is wack!

3. Make a Connection

If you can make a cop laugh your chances of getting out of a ticket are probably twice as high compared to if you didnt make him laugh, right? So following my logic here, if you make an interviewer genuinely laugh your chances getting hired are astronomical.  Bottom line, people want to work with people who they can hang out with and converse with at work. They can always train you to do what they need you to do.

4. Do Your Research

  • Visit their website
  • Read their About them Page
  • Memorize what services they provide
  • Look up their mission statement
  • Reasearch what differentiates them

Thank you Letter

The last thing you should do and one of the most important is to write thank you letter or thank you email right after your interview. If you can leave a hand written letter with the secretary you will definitely stand out from those who have written an email and it will show that you have planned ahead. If you decide to go with an email, you should send it within 24 hours of being interviewed. I even like to send it an hour after the interview was held so that I do not forget about it and it also leaves a good feeling with the interviewer. The above graphic was created with canva.com.

Accepting the Offer

Give Your Two Week Notice

First things first, before you leave your current position it is common curtousy and professional to give your two week notice. This allows your current employee to find a replacement and for you to easily transfer duties smoothly. I suggest mentioning this in the interview as well and explain that you have to finish up any tasks that your in middle of before leaving. Most companies understand this and actually expect that you complete this professional process.

Topics to Consider Having in Writing in Your Offer:

  • Working Remote
  • Work Location
  • Work Schedule
  • Special Accommodations
  • Training

Negotiation Tips

Salary

Be prepared to negotiate salary. You can prepare by researching your position on the market through reliable websites such as glassdoor. This will help you set realistic expectations for yourself. Always ask for more salary than you actually want. It’s a professional strategy but more than likely you will meet in the middle.

Benefits

Extra benefits may include asking to be able to work from home one or two days a week. This is very reasonable if you have a long commute and you could not get the vacation time you desired.

DIY: Create Your Own Gold Glitter Word Cut Out Decoration

Word Cut Out Glitter Decoration DIY

Spring Gold Glitter Decoration!

Spring is almost here so I decided to get a little decorative! This is a very simple diy project and only requires one night to put together. My friends and I couldn’t stop looking at it because it was so sparkly with gold glitter! This Spring sign is from Target. However since it does not appear on Target’s website I have linked a similar cut out word that is just as cute and says Love. You will need the following supplies.

Supplies:

Spring Word Cut Out Decoration

Step One

The first step is to color or prime the entire sign with gold sharpie. I did this because I did not want to be able to see the green underneath the glitter. The second time around I would definitely use gold spray paint instead because it was hard to get in between the nooks and holes with the gold sharpie where the gold spray paint would easily cover.

Gold Sharpie Word Cut Out Decoration

Step Two

After priming the entire sign with gold sharpie or gold spray paint, you will want to use Mod Podge as an adhesive for the glitter. I find that Mod Podge helps most of the glitter stick to the sign and precents a lot of it falling off. I used an old makeup brush to put the Mod Podge on the sign.

Spring Gold Sharpie Word Cut Out Decoration

Step Three

Before I started to gold glitter my sign, I put the sign on a big plate so that I would not get it all over my counter tops and it would be easier to clean up afterwards. This really helped contain the gold glitter to my work area. Next, I poured gold glitter over the entire front and let it dry for about twenty minutes. Then I repeated step two with the other three sides allowing it to dry in between glittering each side. TIP: You will want to shake off the excess and reapply Mod Podge in areas that are not fully covered in gold glitter.

DIY Word Cut Out Gold Glitter Decoration

 Finished!

This project cost around $12.58. This is an awesome deal compared to similar signs at Francesca’s that are not as sparkly and are sold for nearly $16 full price as shown here.

How to Clean your Makeup Brushes Daily and Weekly

 How to Clean Makeup Brushes

How to Clean Makeup Brushes

It’s always super hard to remember to clean your makeup brushes but its also very important! The first reason you should clean your brushes is that it expands their longevity. Makeup brushes can be expensive so it’s nice if you can make them last longer. The second reason is that it is bad for your skin if you keep using brushes that have caked on make up with dead skin cells on the bristles that can clog pores. I’m really bad at remembering to clean my brushes so it helps to have a posted note on my mirror! They say it takes about 28 days to make a habit so once you’ve trained yourself to clean your brushes you can take the post it note down.

Daily Spray

Sephora Citrus Brush Cleaner

Sephora Citrus Brush Cleaner

I like this daily spray to use with my brushes to prevent my brushes from having a gunky build up by the end of the week. This product by Sephora has a subtle Citrus scent and leaves my brushes smelling great which I really enjoy since they are used around my face. This product contains an anti-bacterial formula to keep your brushes very fresh. To use this product all you have to do is spray one or two sprites onto your used brush and then take a cloth or tissue and wipe off the excess makeup. I still suggest and highly recommend that you do a deep clean of your brushes at the end of the week. You can purchase this Citrus Brush Cleaner from Amazon.

Weekly Shampooing

Sephora Makeup Brush Shampoo

Sephoa Makeup Brush Shampoo

I purchased this Sephora makeup brush shampoo a while back and its very easy to use. This Sephora product is also purifying with an antibacterial formula to keep your brushes on point. If you have ever cleaned art brushes, it is a very similar process to clean makeup brushes. Start off with a few drops of soap in your hand and wet your brush. Start to lather your brush in your palm. Next, Squeeze the water out of the brush and make sure to shape the brush similar to how it was shaped when you purchased it with a nice tip. Repeat until you have gotten all of the makeup out of your brush and the water is running clear. You can buy some of Sephora’s Makeup Brush Shampoo from Amazon.

bareMinerals Brush Conditioning Shampoo

bareMinerals well-cared for Brush Shampoo

This is another makeup brush shampoo that I use and like. It helps to keep my brushes feeling very soft. However, if you do not have makeup brush shampoo you can use soap that is safe for your face (especially if you have sensitive skin). As mentioned before to use this product start to lather your brush in your palm. Squeeze the soap and water out of your brush and repeat this process until your brush is free of makeup.

How often do you clean your makeup brushes!? And how will you start to remember to clean them if you have been bad about it?

Conclusion of C4 Pre-workout

C4 Pre-Workout Explosive Energy Watermelon Flavor with Creatine Nitrate
I have heard that this is a popular pre-workout, however I like Performixx a little better. You may have heard that only guys should take C4 pre-workout, but I recommend it for men and women. C4 pre-workout did not give as much of a punch, compared to the Performixx pre-workout I reviewed earlier. Not delivering as big of a punch as one would expect can be a good or bad issue depending on what you are going for in your workout. You can purchase it from cellular, vitamin shoppe, Amazon, and GNC.

My Thoughts on VIB Rouge

Not being a professional makeup artist with years of experience,  it’s nice to be able to look great on my blog and instagram with the help of Sephora professionals ! I’m learning more everyday on how to do perfect makeup. I use to walk into Sephora and when I asked for help I would be able to get good color suggestions. Now when I go into Sephora and get my makeup done, not only are the products good colors for me but I am introduced to an entire look with products that work well together. I also learn how to apply them professionally. I have heard that they do not give a gift every year for becoming VIB Rouge which seems a little strange to me, but you still get a birthday gift with a purchase (unfortunately you have to buy something). Overall I think it’s super worth it to spend the money to get to VIB Rouge status if you are interested in makeup or have a lot of special events coming up within the year. Going about 8-9 times for makeovers, you will end up getting your money’s worth.
