Okay everyone. I rarely jump on skincare products quickly. I’m pretty frugal with my money and will research something or ask for a friend’s opinion before I drop a lot of cash on a product. But Summer Fridays got me. They got me good. After seeing them all over Instagram and getting the seal of approval from an aesthetician in my family, I was sold. I purchased the Jet Lag Mask during their Cyber Monday sale and haven’t looked back since.
The Jet Lag name itself implies maximum moisture. We all know what it feels like to get off a plane – your face feels like a desert and your makeup refuses to apply normally the day of and after. I haven’t been on a plane lately, but the recent cold weather has created a similar effect leaving my skin thirsty for moisture. Unlike most masks, the Jet Lag mask can be kept on overnight. I applied a thin layer all over my face the first night and woke up to smooth, moisturized skin. Honestly, it’s like this mask cured the flakiness on my forehead and around my nose instantly.
The Jet Lag mask is packed with vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants and gently exfoliating extracts and is free of silicones, sulfates, synthetic dyes or fragrances, and parabens. Most importantly, Summer Fridays products are cruelty free. Purchasing skincare products made with clean ingredients and made ethically has become something I’ve tried to incorporate more into my routine. I care about what I put into my body, so why not care just as much as what I put onto my body? It ends up inside my skin anyway.
If you’ve looked at my previous skincare routine you’ll know that Vitamin C serum is something I’ve incorporated pretty religiously this year, so I was excited to see that the Jet Lag mask includes Vitamin C components to boost hydration. And maybe even better is the Niacinamide ingredient to reduce pores, uneven skin, and fine lines. I battle deep pores on my nose daily, and I kid you not, they do look visibly smaller after using this mask. I haven’t seen a reduction in fine lines, but that’s not really my end goal here either.
The mask consistency is fairly lightweight and kind of feels like a slightly thicker version of Glossier’s priming moisturizer. It sinks into the skin almost immediately, making it a dual primer under your makeup. I like to apply the Jet Lag mask at night as both an overnight mask and PM moisturizer on my face and neck. And as their website suggests, it works just as well as a makeup primer. I tried it the other morning and found my makeup going on much smoother and lasting longer by the time my work day was over at 4pm. My makeup settled much easier onto my nose, chin, and forehead where before it would cake into and around my pores.
What I’m trying to say is, go get yourself a bottle of this mask magic ASAP. Summer Fridays are right to test our their brand with two great products right out of the gate. I can’t wait to see what they have planned next! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried the Pumpkin Overtime Mask.
