You know when you see those brands absolutely everywhere and you’re just dying to try it? Yeah, that’s how I felt about Summer Fridays. And I got their Overtime Mask in one of my advent calendars and I’ve recently become obsessed!
Here’s what they claim on their website;
The busiest overachievers in the game? Your skin’s cells. They work overtime shedding and renewing themselves. But sometimes—like your desktop—your complexion can get a little cluttered. Perfect for dull or congested skin, this clarifying mask uses vitamin-packed pumpkin and exfoliating apricot seed powder to gently polish away dead skin cells for a luminous effect.Summer Fridays website
Price & Packaging
It’s no secret that Summer Fridays is expensive. At £39 for 64g it’s one of the pricier masks in my collection! However, one thing I’m learning over the years is that skincare can just be expensive. and then the packaging is this gorgeous metal packaging that I find weirdly and deeply satisfying.
And then application is pretty simple; apply a thick layer, rub it in circular motions for 60 seconds, leave for 10 mins and then wash it off.
There are a few key ingredients in this mask that have their own benefits;
Packed with restorative minerals—plus vitamins A, K and C—pumpkin exfoliates and hydrates skin for a brighter, more balanced complexion. It’s also what gives the mask its scent
APRICOT SEED POWDER
Natural and gentle—unlike synthetic abrasives that can damage skin’s surface—this mild exfoliant sweeps away dead skin cells for Carrara marble-smooth results. And this is what’s in the face mask giving it a slightly scrubby effect
OAT KERNEL PROTEIN
With both anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties, this moisturising protein leaves skin feeling velvety-soft and soothed.
Alongside Vitamin C, which is one of my favourite skincare ingredients… it acts like your skin’s own bodyguard by fending off collagen-damaging free radicals—a major culprit in the aging process.
While it’s a natural scent, it doest have a scent. And while it doesn’t bother me, I thought I’d just get that out the way incase it’s potentially a problem for you! But overall, I’ve really been enjoying this mask, it leaves your skin looking glowy as well as clean. It’s like an all in one tbf! While it doesn’t dry your skin out, if you do have dry skin, you might want to incorporate a hydrating mask into your routine too as it won’t completely tick that box on its own. However, if you skin is looking a little dull and in need of a pickmeup, this is amazing! And it’s the apricot seed powder that really helps to clean out your pores and leave your face feeling super clean
Overall loving it. Do I think it’s worth the price tag? Maybe. You do get a lot of uses in there, and the ingredient list is really premium!

I have always wanted to try a product from Summer Fridays, their products always look amazing and have really good reviews. This mask sounds lovely, adding it to my wish list x
I’ve been wanting to try it for ages! x
This sounds like a gorgeous face mask, I genuinely love that it has pumpkin in the ingredients. Not sure I would love the price though x
Oh it’s just so expensive! I’d love to say I’d repurchase it over and over again, but I’d probably only get it if I really want to treat myself! x
I’m always sceptical of trying new skin care because my skin can be quite sensitive, so I love that you added in the bit about using a hydrating mask as well! I’d be tempted to try it if it was maybe slightly cheaper haha!
OMG I know! Skincare can just be expensive, but it is ridic! x
Honestly when my sister bought it i thought I was sceptical about the price, but boy! I love them, i think they are worth the cost. I mostly use the jet lag one and it lives your skin moisturized and soft as a baby. Thanks for sharing x
I really want to get the Jet Lag one and use them as a combo! x
I so want to try it! Sounds like a lovely mask
Oh it’s really nice! x

No problem! Thanks for stopping by! x
I own this one (and it’s almost empty) and I absolutely love it. I personally also like to combine this with the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask! I multimask or I appy the Jet Lag Mask after I’ve used the Overtime Mask. Really recommend trying the combination for a hydrated, glowy skin! 🙂

A few people have told me that, I think I need that other mask! x
I’ve never heard of Summer Fridays before but I’m loving that the mask has pumpkin in it! Sounds like a great product, even if it is a little expensive compared to my usual masks 🙂 x
It’s pricey, but at least it lasts for quite a few uses! x
Thank you for a great breakdown. I have seen quite a few people talking about this brand recently, but wasn’t sure if it was worth purchasing or not. It is a little higher cost, but I don’t mind spending a little more if I know that I’m getting my money’s worth out of it.
I’ve been really loving it! I think it’s meant to be amazing in combo with the Jet Lag mask (if you’re that boojie!) x
I’ve been wanting to try a product from summer Fridays! This was a really helpful review!💗✨
Aww glad I could help! x
I have always wanted a summer Fridays product, but it is just a bit spenny haha! But then when it comes to skin care I feel if you want a good product you often have to up your budget.
Yeah, skincare can be a little spenny! x
I haven’t heard of Summer Fridays before but it’s great that they work really well! Love the different ingredients packed in the tube. From time to time, fragrance-free creams are great. Still better than the ones that doesn’t have the best smell haha. Thanks for sharing your experience!

As long as the scent isn’t too overpowering, I don’t think that would bother me if I purchased this mask! This sounds like a great beauty face mask x

Yeah, I don’t mind a small scent! x
I’ve never tried anything from them before, but I’ve always heard good things. I may just have to try this mask and the lip balm out now! Thanks for sharing!
No problem! Hopefully you love them! x
Ok, you’ve convinced me – I’m gonna buy! I’ve been eyeing up this face mask for a while but just kept wondering whether it would be any good or not! So thanks Katie 🙂 x
hahaha. Sorry not sorry 😉 x
The apricot seed powder is so interesting to me! I’m always on the hunt for natural products and I’ve been meaning to step up my skincare. Might be checking this out soon! 🙂
Ditto! I’d love to try more from them!
I feel like the whole story behind Summer Friday was one of their main selling points to me, but even though the price tag is what it is, they are 100% worth it. This one is bomb! x
Awww that’s so nice! x
I love face masks! This one sounds super interesting but yikes at the price tag! Haha. I’m definitely one of those gals who suffers from dry skin (especially in winter) so I’d need the extra hydration, but I’d be willing to try this mask out at some point maybe. Thanks for the review. 🙂
Some skincare is just so expensive! x
I love skincare, you’ve tempted me so much with this mask!
Hahaha sorry not sorry! x
I always like reading reviews on face masks in particular. I pretty much stick to the same… 2?? over and over again – but I’d like to branch out. It was fun to see what you thought of this one. I’m allergic to oats so I couldn’t try it for myself, but I’m glad you like it!
Face masks are the one thing I do mix and match on, but I’m very much like that with the rest of my skincare!x
This sounds like a lovely mask, not tried anything from summer fridays but I like the sound of this. I need to get this to try.

I really want to try more by them! x
I’ve always wanted to try Summer Fridays but haven’t managed to get around to it yet. This mask sounds great, I’m really sensitive to vitamin C so I’m not sure if my skin would get along with it but it sounds like a lovely product x
I can’t wait to try more from this brand, so if I find something else I love I’ll always write a follow up post! x
This is something I’ve seen a lot of online. The ingredients sound amazing. Glad you’ve been noticing a difference with it 😊
Yeah! I’ve really been enjoying it! x
I haven’t tried this product but based from your review, it sounds delightful and worth the try! Thanks for sharing! This would really help a lot of people.
No problem! I aim to help! And thanks for stopping by! x
