We tried it, and it’s no joke.
If dullness and lack of moisture is what ails you, well, it’s about time you met Summer Fridays and their new little blue tube of glory. They named it the Jet Lag Mask, but you don’t need to be a frequent flyer for this one.
Summer Fridays proudly touts their first (and, so far only) release as free of parabens, synthetic dyes and fragrances, and sulfate—in addition to being vegan, cruelty free, and made in the USA. The resulting formula is the consistency of a thick cream that works to absolutely drench skin with moisture. It’s also gentle enough to apply directly under the eye and over the eyelids without fear of discomfort or irritation, which, for those with sensitive skin, will immediately set Jet Lag apart from its competitive set.
Not only is the ingredient list stacked with moisturizing heavy hitters, it also features gentle exfoliating chestnut extract; a naturally occurring compound of Vitamin B3 that reduces pore size, blotchy skin, and fine lines; and inflammation- and free-radical busting green tea.
After just one use, we began to see the inflammation reduction properties take hold, and the consequence of the previous night’s lack of sleep (i.e. under eye bags) quietly diminished within 10 minutes—trust us, we set a timer. We simply dabbed it in with a warm cloth once time was up before carrying on with our morning makeup application.
Just know, there’s no one way to use Jet Lag. You’ll find it’s a true chameleon that can be used as a traditional mask or, as the Summer Fridays founders recommend, as an overnight mask or primer under makeup.

However you choose to categorize it, this skincare switch hitter might just be the summer skin fix we’ve been looking for. We’re happy to report dewy, rested skin is in the forecast this season thanks to this $48 pop—well, as long as Sephora can keep it in stock.
