[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve heard a great deal of hype about the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask for tired skin so I really wanted to see if it lived up to expectations. On first sight, it’s a bit of a rescue type of a mask, hence the Jet Lag title, although you can use it nightly if you need to. In fact, there are several ways to use it – and that’s where I have a bit of a problem –  as a daily moisturiser, an in-flight mask, a nightly mask or a quick 10 minute moisture boost. I am questioning whether it’s really a mask or it’s just a snappily named moisturiser and I’m thinking that this is a case of marketing meeting formula and deciding what will sell the best. There are a million moisturisers and considerably less Jet Lag Masks so it’s filling a gap. Also, tired skin? I’m not sure there is any particular definition for that.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask Review

Given its price point – £26 for the smaller (28ml) version and £49 for the (64ml) – which feels quite reasonable to me for the amount you get – if you are heading off long-haul and you tend to dry up on a flight, it’s very comfortable and skin soothing, so it would be ideal for that (as probably would your regular moisturiser). I tested it as per instructions on the box – for a ten minute TLC moisture boost.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask Review

The texture looks thick but feels light on the skin. It’s fragrance free, immediately cooling and sure enough, it did give my skin a feeling of being more hydrated and softer. You just need to blot your face afterwards with a (warm) damp cloth to take off any excess if you do a quickie, orrrrrr you could just work it in like a moisturiser! On the surface, the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is a winner but on inspection, I’d prefer more clarity about what exactly it is. They’ve gone a very long and convoluted way to turn a perfectly pleasant moisturiser into something else. To my mind, a mask isn’t something you can use as a day to day moisturiser. Am I being pedantic? Other ingredients of note are Vitamin C, niacinamide and shea butter. The mask is HERE.
