As we've previously mentioned, we get a particular type of joy from finding new beauty products on Instagram. Call it the thrill of the chase, but the brand-discovery high is real. That being said, there's always a downside to these discoveries, and that's often the lack of availability in Australia. Case in point: Summer Fridays.
But as they say, patience is a virtue and we were finally rewarded, with local beauty retailer, Mecca, announcing they were stocking Summer Fridays first product, the Jet Lag Mask at the end of last year. Since then, we've been eager to try the brands second (and equally Instagram-famous) product, the Overtime Mask ($67).
As Summer Fridays first iteration into brightening and clarifying, the product contains pumpkin extract and oatmeal kernels to exfoliate the skin, whilst soothing and calming. According to the brand, this product is aimed at those of us with "overworked" skin, which as far as we're concerned is basically everyone on the planet. However, keeping in mind that this is an exfoliating product, those with more sensitive or dry skin may prefer the original, hydrating formula.
It's worth noting, Summer Friday's products normally sell out fast, with their first product, the Jet Lag Mask ($70) regularly being waitlisted at international retailers. So, if you've been waiting as long as us to try, we'd suggest getting in quick.
