As Candice and I prepared for a festive weekend in California, I knew we would be in serious need of heavy hitting healing products. Between the sun, the airplane, and lack of sleep, our skin would be completely depleted. Knowing that, in times like these, most products would not be able to stand up against the elements, and an extra boost would be needed.
One of the most buzzed about products of this year has been Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask. Summer Fridays was recently launched by two well-known beauty influencers who were highly versed in every product on the market, and yet still felt there was something missing. Having been in Sephora, I found it hard to believe anything could be missing, but they were right. One super mask that could kick your face back into gear immediately, something that could pick you right back up if you fell, something to point you back in the right direction if you got lost.
A well-known clothing designer once told me that in order to create a successful line, you need to make the absolute best of just one thing that everyone needs, and then you can grow. Maybe the beauties from summer Fridays got this same advice, because that’s just what they did.
Understanding the urgency of fixing sad, stressed skin, founders Marinna Hewitt and Lauren Gores formulated a product that immediately whips your skin back into shape. The Jet Lag Mask directly addresses the side effects that appear on our face when our skin is tired or neglected.
Chestnut extracts act as an exfoliant, turning dull skin into glowing skin. Vitamin C is a magical antioxidant that instantly brightens skin, and helps to hold moisture in. Vitamin B is well-known to be extremely effective at minimizing pores and fine lines. Green tea calm skin, reducing inflammation and bloat, returning it back to a toned look.
The instructions are to apply a thick layer for 10 minutes and wipe away with no rinse. This absolutely worked wonders, in fact it worked so well I couldn’t stop there, I wanted to use it more. Knowing that the ingredients were all natural and sensitive, combined with the obvious high quality creamy texture, I felt safe to indulge.
I applied the mask as a thin layer to sleep in, and washed it off in the morning. I was gifted with the softest, most evenly toned skin I have ever awoken to. My skin rivaled that of a child, and I needed no morning make up to get that sleepy look away.
It worked so well that I decided to pack it in my carry-on to use on the airplane. I ever so often patted it around my eyes or any spots that felt like they were drying. This completely protected my skin from the ugly side effects of flying, like dehydration and puffiness. My least favorite look. Additionally, I have started rubbing it on my hands and feet at night.
Something about the texture of this cream and the way it makes my skin feel is so addictive. I can not wait to try their new product, Overtime Mask. Let me know if you have other ways to to maximum this product. I need more!
