I’ll admit it. I was a little apprehensive about purchasing the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask. I mean for one, it’s a $48 mask and two, I have a pretty hefty mask collection already. How special could this one be? But being the dedicated beauty blogger that I am, I finally splurged on it right before my bday trip, using the excuse of needing it to mask in-flight and review it for the blog, of course.
I also didn’t mind spending the money once I heard of all of the ways the Jet Leg Mask could be used: rinse-off mask, overnight mask, in-flight, as a moisturizer, and makeup primer. I’ve been using this mask for 3 months and I’m now ready to share the good and/or bad. So, is it holy grail or fail?
A few things before we get into the review…
Not only did I want to try this mask because it was so hyped on social media, but I also wanted to try it because it was co-created by one of my favorite beauty bloggers, Marianna Hewitt. Marianna and her friend Lauren started Summer Fridays together and I’m so inspired by what they’ve been able to do through blogging.
Secondly, I love that this mask is a part of the clean beauty selection at Sephora and it is cruelty-free. These are two factors that I have started to consider more when shopping for beauty products.
Packaging: As you’d expect of a product created by bloggers, the packaging of the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is perfect! I am obsessed with the actual tube as well as the box it came in. The tube is sleek and functional, and I love how crumply it gets after each use (so satisfying). I’m also in love with the blue color, and the fonts used for the logo and text. The backside of the tube features the directions as well as the ingredients. 10/10
Application + Texture: One of my favorite things about this mask is that it is designed to also be used under the eyes. The eye area is so important to care for for me since it’s the source of my dark circles and it shows the biggest signs of dullness/fatigue. Anything that can make my under eyes look better is a winner in my book.
I like that this comes in a tube. It’s much more sanitary than dipping my fingers into a jar. The texture of this mask is thick and creamy and I LOVE it. It truly is the perfect mask to apply in-flight or overnight on dehydrated skin. 10/10
Performance: Since I have combo/oily skin, I’ve only used this as an overnight mask to boost my skin’s hydration while I sleep. I love the subtle tingle I feel when I first apply the mask. It goes away really fast and doesn’t irritate my skin at all. The mask absorbs for the most part but I do feel a bit of product on my skin the next morning. This could be due to the amount of product I apply the night before but I’m just obsessed with how it feels. My skin feels soft and well-nourished by morning. 9/10
Final Review: The Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is beautifully designed and well-formulated. It’s hydrating and nourishing and more importantly, it’s made with clean ingredients. As I move toward more clean beauty and skincare, this mask has become a staple in my routine. It’s definitely made it to holy grail status.
I plan on testing out how this works as a primer and moisturizer in the cooler months when my skin can stand a thicker cream during the day.
