Skincare Review - Summer Fridays Overtime Mask
Ever since the launch of the highly coveted, cult skincare favourite Summer Fridays Jet lag mask I have been patiently anticipating the next product from the range. If you aren't yet familiar with Summer Fridays the brand was founded by Instagram and Youtube creators Mariana Hewitt and Lauren Gores Ireland and last month the duo launched their second product Overtime Mask. Overtime is a vegan, cruelty free, clarifying and exfoliating mask made with fruit enzymes such as Pumpkin, Apricot seed powder and Oat kernel to slough away dead cells and leave glowing, radiant skin.
Their Jet lag mask very quickly became a firm favourite of mine so I knew I had to get this and see how it lived up to it's predecessor.
Straight out of the tube the mask is thick and buttery and melts away into the skin leaving a beautiful grainy balm like residue. The grains of Apricot are finely crushed and not too abrasive which makes it great for anyone with a more sensitive skin type than myself
Summer Fridays advise to apply a thick layer and gently massage into the skin for 1 minute then leave for a further 10 minutes before washing off with tepid water which I really didn't want to do because I was totally lost in the comfort of the incredible scent, like Pumpkin spiced latte.
Aside from the incredible scent the mask also delivered a lot of hydration which isn't something that any of my other exfoliants do and after just one use my skin felt fresh and appeared decongested, smoother, brighter and plumper. I followed up with the Jet lag mask which I currently use as an overnight moisturiser and the effects of the combo lasted well into the next day.
This is definitely a product I will be incorporating more often, maybe not twice a week as recommended as I'm not totally ready to quit on my chemical exfoliants but I'll be using this as a pick me up when my skin is looking slightly dull, It's the perfect addition to my Autumn skincare routine. At £39 the price point for the mask is quite high but I do think it’s a wonderful product and definitely worthy of the investment.
