Flawless By Friday Product Review*

A while back, I was sent a few products from Flawless by Friday to try out, it took me a few weeks to fully try everything out due to my busy schedule but honestly I am in love with these high quality products. Before I begin my review, I thought I'd share a bit about the history of the company with you. They combine asian-inspired gel technology in their masks to minimize the time and maximize the amount of result. The products are free of parabens and sulphates and are suitable for all skin types. 

Their skincare line consists of 4 products: Flawless by Friday 5-day system, Forever Flawless serum, Mesmereyes eye treatments, and Good to Go system. It is recommended that you start by getting your skin radiant and hydrated with the Flawless by Friday 5-day system. After those initial 5 days, to maintain that flawless skin you should continue to use the Forever Flawless Serum, and brighten up your eye area with the extra-cooling Mesmereyes eye masks. 

Face masks aren't just a skin regiment for women, men can enjoy it too! However, most men may feel intimidated using just any face mask so they specifically created a set for the men out there so that the boyfriends and husbands can enjoy the Good to Go system. This will get their skin prepped, hydrated and energized for any special or important business event in their life.

Their products are available on their website at www.flawlessbyfriday.com, as well as 50+ specialty cosmetic retail stores including The Bay now and spas across Canada.

About the Founder:
The one great thing about this brand is that it is founded by Brittny Skylar Robins, a 28-year-old Toronto entrepreneur! She grew up in a house as one of five sisters. She was always the resident make up artist, hairdresser, and skincare consultant, sparking her love for the beauty industry.  Flawless by Friday came to life not only because Brittny wants to help women look beautiful and educate them in skincare and beauty, she is also passionate about the concept of inner confidence shaping outer beauty when people interact with the world. She wants to help women achieve inner and outer “flawlessness” by encouraging them to be their unique, authentic self. 

As indicated by the name of the product, it is a 5-day facial system to serve as a quick fix for all your skincare concerns. It is meant to be used if you anticipate any special events coming up and you want to look your best. It contains 5 different hydrogel masks that are soaked in 5 unique blends of ingredients. Each mask only takes 15 minutes a day and you can see in the pictures below, that they are all packaged separately and labelled carefully. Although they do mention days of the week on the masks, feel free to just use them whenever you want - you can start them 5 days before your event at any time, so on a Tuesday, Wednesday just remember what day you're on :) 

Day One: Moisture Monday – Hyaluronic Acid
• Helps skin retain moisture as hyaluronic acid holds a thousand times its weight in water
• Benefits tissue repair and protection by penetrating into the skin’s upper layers

Day Two: Toning Tuesday – Vitamin C
• Reverses age-related damage to skin as a powerful antioxidant
• Reduces inflammation, acne scarring, and pigmentation

Day Three: Wrinkle Wednesday – Green Tea
• Sooths and heals stressed skin while reducing inflammation
• Prevents collagen breakdown and delays skin cell aging

Day Four: Tightening Thursday – Collagen & Caffeine
• Slows down the breakdown of collagen by combating damaging free radicals
• Repairs UV damage, treats rosacea, and soothes inflammation

Day Five: Flawless Friday – Honey
• Boosts overall complexion by moisturizing, soothing, and heeling the skin
• Treats and prevents acne with its natural antibacterial properties

As you can see, these masks are made of a thick gel material and it works well to absorb all the necessary ingredients and to also make sure it stays locked in on your face during the mask process. 

Next up is the Forever Flawless Booster Serum (meant to be used everyday after the 5-day System to maintain the effects of the system) and the Mesmereyes eye masks.

The Forever Flawless Serum is my favorite product out of everything sent. All you need is ONE DROP, seriously - ONE DROP every night. It is the perfect combination of hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid (my two favorites) and it leaves your skin feeling softer and more radiant when you wake up. It also combats acne and signs of aging, and reduces acne scarring and improves overall skin texture. You also only need to use this product 2-3 times a week at night and make sure sunscreen is applied the next morning, as always!

For those of you who do not know,
Hyaluronic acid brings moisture back into the skin as it retains a thousand times its weight in water within the cells of the skin. It can also penetrate into the layers more deeply than your regular moisturizer.

Glycolic acid is a great catch-all treatment because it has the smallest molecules in the alpha hydroxy acid group. It treats fine lines, acne, oiliness, blackheads, and dullness simultaneously by penetrating into the deep layers of the skin.

Mesmeryes is a hydrogel eye mask, the texture of the eye mask is the same as the face ones and features a myriad of different active ingredients that work together to combat these major concerns we all have - i.e. puffy eyes, saggy bags and dark circles. The cooling hydrogel technology allows you to instantly feel the difference when applied and because of the thicker gel texture, it will stay put just like the face masks.

1. Hyaluronic acid – hydrates the under eye area to help sooth and plump the skin under your eyes.
2. Collagen & Caffeine – tightens and smoothes fine lines while plumping up the collagen production in your skin.
3. Honey – depuffs your eyes and soothes all irritation or redness around the eye area.

I thoroughly 100% recommend you to try out the products from Flawless by Friday and I do sincerely love to support a Canadian Brand. If you were to get one thing, I'd suggest the serum for sure!

Until next time, XO - M.
