Which Summer Fridays Mask Is For You?
Summer Fridays took the skincare industry and Instagram by storm in 2020 and we were blessed with their photogenic products everywhere we turned. If you haven’t heard of them and the cult-favourite masks, where have you been?
Founded by influencers Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores Ireland, the two were frustrated with not being able to find what they were looking for in the skincare industry. So, with a team of industry experts, Maria and Lauren decided to create a brand of their own with a range of vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free products, guaranteed to revive the skin and give you the ultimate selfie-worthy glow.
Summer Fridays currently have 8 products ranging from face masks, cleansers and exfoliants to serums. They released their new moisturiser ‘Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream’ early January and they have set the pace for this year. In 2021, we have vowed to dedicate more of our time to self-care and what better place to start than with some cult-favourites.
Summer Fridays currently have 3 face masks, all targeting different skincare concerns (so there’s something for everyone). Are you unsure on which mask is the best for you? Look no further…
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask - HYDRATE
The best selling and cult favourite mask is the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask; a hydrating formula that soothes thirsty, stressed out skin. With a nourishing mix of vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants and gentle exfoliating extract, your skin will instantly feel renewed, radiant and ready for anything! What we love about this mask is how multi purpose it is, whether you use it as a 10-minute mask, a primer, everyday moisturiser or overnight treatment, your skin will thank you for it.
CHESTNUT EXTRACT: Activates the natural exfoliation process, polishing away dullness so skin looks radiant, healthy and well-rested (even when you’re not).
VITAMIN C: This powerful antioxidant brightens skin tone and behaves like a moisture-magnet, boosting the hydration barrier.
NIACINAMIDE: A naturally occurring compound of Vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, this super ingredient visibly reduces pores, uneven skin and fine lines.
Summer Fridays R&R Mask - GLOW
After the 2020 we had, we could all use a little R&R. Smooth out rough days with the Summer Fridays 2-in-1 R&R mask, which lovingly buffs skin brighter before hugging it in a dream mix of antioxidant-rich oils. Featuring delicately ground wild rose powder, your skin will be loving the moisture, nourishing fatty acids and anti-inflammatory healing properties. Take 10 minutes for some well deserved rest and recovery.
BULGARIAN ROSE: Noses, take note: boasting one of the world’s most precious essential oils, this mask is more intoxicating than two-dozen long stems.
ARGAN OIL: Loaded with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, argan oil’s anti-inflammatory powers help reduce dark spots and scars while deeply hydrating skin.
ROSE FLOWER POWDER: This gentle polishing powder physically speeds up cells’ renewal process (AKA your complexion’s daily do-over).
SAFFLOWER, SESAME, AVOCADO, GRAPE SEED OIL: We handpicked the smoothest skin-nourishing oils so your complexion can luxuriate in a power-shot of fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants.
Summer Fridays Overtime Mask - EXFOLIATE
We’re all familiar with the concept of overtime, now that working from home is slowly becoming the new normal, and our skin is no different. Give your skin cells the pick me up they need after the year they’ve had. Perfect for dull looking and congested skin, this clarifying mask uses vitamin-packed pumpkin and exfoliating apricot seed powder to gently polish away dead skin cells, instantly revealing a luminous complexion. Gently massage into the skin, avoiding the eye area for a refreshing experience.
PUMPKIN: Packed with restorative minerals—plus vitamins A, K and C—pumpkin exfoliates and hydrates skin for a brighter, more balanced complexion.
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.
OAT KERNEL PROTEIN: With both anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties, this moisturising protein leaves skin feeling velvety-soft and soothed.
VITAMIN E: Like your skin’s own bodyguard, this antioxidant fends off collagen-damaging free radicals—a major culprit in the ageing process.
With more products to be released this year, the Cohorted team are keen to see what else Summer Fridays have to offer to the skincare industry.
