It is officially pumpkin spiced latte season at Starbucks and Dunkins, and besides awards season, favorite time of the year! We all have those guilty pleasures, but for me pumpkin spice lattes are not one of them. I believe in both being proud and loud when you love something. And I love both embracing my most basic-self and my love for all things pumpkin.
I am a marketer by profession, but again I’m a sucker for a great marketing campaign. I honestly believe that one of the greatest marketing campaigns to ever be invented is coffee chains and the pumpkin spice latte. Look, we know that this topic is polarizing. You either love all things PSL or you hate it. I am part of the (right) camp that loves this specialty latte signaling the start of fall.
Some people wait all year long for PSL season. But what if I told you there was a way to get that sweet pumpkin spice experience all year long? Yes, today we’re talking about the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask. Overtime is an exfoliating mask by the clean skincare brand, one of my favorites, and according to the Summer Fridays website is “Packed with vitamins A, K and C, pumpkin exfoliates and hydrates skin for blinding brightness.” To celebrate the start of PSL season I wanted to write an honest review on the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask, a mask that promises to brighten and clarify skin with its ingredients of pumpkin and exfoliating apricot seed powder.
Exfoliating & Clarifying: Review of the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask
What is the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask? What does the Overtime Mask do?
I’m not going to lie, when I started discovering skincare, I did not understand the importance of using masks. Nor did I understand how often to including exfoliating in my skincare. Of course, I’m here to share my words by Will. The Summer Fridays Overtime Mask is a newer addition into my skincare regimen. But in the 2 month I’ve used this exfoliating mask it is a favorite! It should be noted that I have oily-combination skin, so I’m always looking for a good exfoliating mask.
The Summer Fridays Overtime Mask is a product that leaves your skin scrubbed clean without feeling stripped. I use this mask 3 times a week because I do workout, wear sunscreen every day, and just overall have oilier skin. If your skin is drier you can pull back on how often you use the Overtime Mask. Regardless of your skin type, the clean ingredients in the Overtime Mask include oat kernel protein and pumpkin leaving your skin clarified and plump.
I use this mask on my self-care days, or when I feel like my skin is looking dull. After using this mask, I follow up with some of my favorite other Summer Fridays products. The Overtime Mask gives me a warm feeling because not only is my skin butter smooth, but my skin smells like the best time of the year. Again, in this house we stan pumpkin spice and I look forward to using this mask all year-round.
Whether you’re not a pumpkin person, or you are, I cannot recommend this exfoliating Summer Fridays mask enough. Not only will your pores get cleaned but you will immediately see some glowing skin. Remember that one reason skin gets dull is because of dead skin dimming your shine. I’m here to help you always shine!
