Summer Fridays Overtime Mask, Sephora ($44)
I love Summer Fridays. It’s the brand founded by Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores that’s all over Instagram. I was at their brand launch party earlier this year and was lucky enough to be gifted their first product, the Jet Lag Mask. I was so excited when they launched their second product at the beginning of September that I placed an order immediately.
I have a feeling I’ll be collecting each of their products as they’re release, so let’s make it a tradition for me to share my reviews as they come out.
I was excited to see that the package design and ingredients were fitting for fall. I love displaying my Jet Lag Mask because of the pretty blue color and I imagine I’ll be doing the same with this pretty orange creamsicle colored tube. Fortunately, this product was released right around the same time I knew I needed a good exfoliating product. I also knew that it involved pumpkin, so I was sold.
WHAT’S IN IT
The Overtime Mask is described as “a clarifying mask that uses vitamin-packed pumpkin and exfoliating apricot seed powder to polish away dead skin cells for a luminous effect”. Along with the pumpkin and apricot seed powder, it’s also formulated with oat kernel proteins, beta carotene, and vitamin E. As with all Summer Fridays products, this one is certified clean at Sephora meaning it has no parabens, sulfates, fragrance, or silicone and it is vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. 🙌
The first thing I have to talk about is the scent! It’s a blend of spices like clove, ginger, and nutmeg and seriously smells like pumpkin pie filling. So good! The exfoliant is really light which means it’s not going to be too abrasive on your skin but give a good scrub. If you have super, super sensitive skin, I’d be careful but for the most part, this should work for everyone. After scrubbing for 60 seconds, I left the mask on for ten minutes then rinsed. My face was instantly smooth and glowing! Just like the Jet Lag Mask, I highly recommend the Overtime Mask.
