In this article, I review two of Summer Friday's now cult-status face masks: the "Jet Lag Mask" and "Overtime Mask".
在这篇文章中，我分享了我对这两个面膜的看法，这两个 面膜来自一个新流行护肤品品牌叫“Summer Fridays”。
I was gifted the two masks I review here by Mecca where you can purchase these Summer Fridays goodies. To shop them online in Australia and New Zealand, please go to: https://www.mecca.com.au/summer-fridays/

WHO ARE SUMMER FRIDAYS?
Before I dive into the review, here are a few quick points about Summer Fridays:
Summer Fridays was only launched in 2018 (pretty incredible as it has rocketed to almost every skincare lovers "must buy list");
Within one week of launching, their masks received at least a 4.5 star rating with approximately 7,000 customers on Sephora.com (source: Allure);
The products can be described as "clean beauty" (free from parabens, synthetic dyes & fragrances, and sulfates);
All of the products are vegan and cruelty-free; and
there are currently three masks available - the third one is called the "R+R Mask" (not yet available in Australia and New Zealand).
The products were formulated with the help of industry experts and are meant to give you instant results. They are also affordably priced. They say to think of Summer Fridays's masks as "a green juice for your complexion" (click here for source).
WHY ARE THEY SO COOL?
OK. I pretty much gave it all away with that title. Please do read on though!
First up, I like the fact that the products come in a recyclable metal tube. I'm rather clumsy and I don't do well with pots. Even though I know that "potted" products are formulated for some level of protection against your "day to day germs", I still get the creeps - think many (dirty) fingers dipping many times into the pot (my very unsophisticated and non-environmentally friendly method is to use a cotton bud. Yes, sure I can use a spatula but I would have to wash etc etc). So, I AM VERY MUCH IN LOVE with the packaging. Simple and convenient.
The first mask I tried was the "Jet Lag Mask". For the last few months I've had these two patches of red rashes on my face - most likely chemical burns from random skincare I've tried. So, I've had to be very careful with choosing skincare to test (there have been some products that have helped and some that have exacerbated the issue).
I've been more inclined to test skincare products on my face that meet the description of being made from "clean and/or natural" ingredients.
这款面膜非常温和，滋润肌肤。 你只需要申请10分钟。 你的皮肤会瞬间滋润。 你甚至可以将这个面膜留在脸上过夜。 你不必洗掉它。 我喜欢在化妆之前使用它。 它使我的皮肤感觉更柔软，看起来更光滑。
The Jet Lag Mask's active ingredients are:
chestnut extract - meant to activate a natural exfoliation process (I love chestnuts, so to find chestnuts in a skincare product is really cool to me).
niacinamide - they use a naturally occuring compound of vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid.
The full list of ingredients is listed below, but let's talk about how good this product is first.
There is a very slight scent to it (derived from the natural ingredients used), it smelt fresh like mint and cucumbers with a light touch of lemon zest.
The texture is divine. Most people like to use this as an "overnight mask" or for, as the name suggests, on long haul flights. I say:"use it all the time!". It is very hydrating and you can see the effects very quickly. I've been using it as a pre-makeup base as well. Just before I apply the rest of my makeup, I apply this, wait for a few minutes, and then wipe it off with a cotton pad. It really helps to smooth out the dryness on the "chemical burn" spots on my face.
When I apply it as an overnight mask, I see a visible result. My husband has also commented about how much this has done to help with those "chemical burn" patches. I believe his words were "Oh wow!". NICE!
I have dehydrated oily combination skin and I do not wake up looking like I have an oil slick. Skin looks plump and hydrated.
他们使用栗子提取物，薄荷等天然成分; 橙皮油和黄瓜。 这款面膜适合所有肤质。 我有油性皮肤但是当我使用它时，我的脸看起来并不油腻。
Full ingredients list:
Water, Caprylic /Capric Triglyceride, Castanea Sativa (Chestnut) Seed Extract, Diheptyl Succinate, Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Pentylene Glycol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea)Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol, Niacinamide, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Glycerin, Sorbitan Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate , PEG 100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Physalis Angulata Extract, Ceramide 3, Ceramide 6 II, Ceramide 1, Phytosphingosine, Cholesterol, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Arginine, Citric Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mentha Arvensis (Cornmint) Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange)Peel Oil, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract.
I really didn't know what to expect with this mask, so when it came out in this bright and cheerful tumeric gold colour, I just smiled. SOLD!
Before checking the ingredients, I felt like this smelled a bit like tumeric/ginger, a bit of cinnamon and some type of fruit. It smells delicious.
The physical exfoliant you see in the photo above is apricot seed powder. I think quite a few years ago ground up apricot kernels as an exfoliator was very popular. This does not feel like that. It has a more gentle feel to it. At first I thought they might be jojoba wax beads - so that is how gentle they feel.
这是一个去角质面膜。 它非常快速和容易申请。 您只需将其涂抹60秒并冲洗干净即可。 我喜欢这款面膜的清淡草本香味。 每当我看到这个面膜的欢快明亮的颜色时，我都感到非常高兴！
The active ingredients are:
pumpkin - contains lots of restorative minerals, Vitamins A, K, C, and pumpkin has its own exfoliating properties.
apricot seed powder
oat kernel protein - I always like oats in my skincare for their soothing properties;
This is a gentle exfoliator and it did make my complexion brighter after using it just once. I had to be a bit careful around the area where my "chemical burns" are but I do note that this DID NOT those areas sting (that's a good sign for me and signals that this product is gentle enough for all skin types).
这款面膜采用南瓜等天然成分制成; 杏仁粉和燕麦仁。 它还含有维生素E，具有良好的抗衰老功效。
This is a really fun mask to play with. Odd I know, but if you can inject some fun into your skincare regime, why not? You apply a thick layer of it on dry cleansed skin and gently massage it in circular motions. It rinses off very easily and my skin felt cleansed and smooth and looked brighter.
#texturetuesday fans will love this mask.

YAY OR NAY?
So, should you try Summer Fridays? I say, why not? I've used them for about 3 weeks and I've seen my skin improve. The packaging is practical and convenient. The ingredients used are natural and good for you. The products work for my sensitive, dehydrated and oily combination skin and has helped heal my chemical burns.
So yes! DO give them a go.
我觉得这些都是很好的面膜。 我喜欢它们对我皮肤的有效性。 它们很温柔，但我几乎可以立即看到结果。 当我使用它们时，我的丈夫总是评论我的皮肤看起来有多好。 我也喜欢它们非常实用的包装。 这些产品是纯素而没有在动物身上测试过。 试一试吧！
