And, as Connecticut-based board-certified dermatologist Mona Gohara once explained to Allure, it’s best to avoid fragrances because they “just add cosmetic appeal to the product but are irritating to the skin barrier, causing more dryness and irritation.”
What’s more: Summer Fridays also added a short roster of new ingredients to Jet Lag, including vitamin B5, chamomile, and comfrey. King describes each of these ingredients as hydrating, calming, and healing, respectively. Those combined with the formula’s already-existing niacinamide, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid make for a formula that pretty much does it all.
Aside from those things, everything about the mask is ultimately the same, including the packaging, which now features a small sticker on the upper left corner to label the new formulation. It even has the same thick, gelatinous texture that feels like a really rich moisturizer — and you can kind of treat it like one. As the instructions on the back of the signature baby-blue tube say, you can layer this on any time of day, let it sit for 10 minutes, and pat skin dry with a warm cloth (yep, you don’t even need to rinse it off). It’s prime for the times your skin needs a little TLC, but you don’t have the time for a full 12-step skin-care routine. And anything that saves us time these days is a winner in our book.
The reformulated Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is $48 and will be available beginning June 15 on sephora.com.
