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!
