We caught up with Ireland and Hewitt to learn more:

Q: For those who aren’t familiar, what is Summer Fridays?

Ireland: Summer Fridays is a beauty brand based in Los Angeles, and it embodies the effortless feeling of a California lifestyle with efficacious and easy-to-use products across skin care, body care and skin-care-meets-makeup hybrids.

Q: What makes the brand unique?

Hewitt: We formulate our products to be gentle, yet effective. Our intention is to make formulas that deliver results without the irritation and give you glowing skin.

Q: Who is the target customer?

Ireland: We target a wide range of skin-care enthusiasts, specifically Millennial and Gen-Z consumers, who value beauty products that are visually appealing and efficacious. We are also a community-driven brand, and we have a loyal group that we’ve been able to tap into for product feedback, content creation and product development.

Q: Is there a ‘hero’ product in the line?

Hewitt: We have many hero products within the line, but our first would be our Jet Lag Mask, which was the product we launched the brand with. It’s a multi-purpose product and can be used as an eye cream, face mask, moisturizer and more.

Summer Fridays Rich Cushion Cream.

Q: What can you share about your newest launch, the Rich Cushion Cream

Ireland: It is the most incredible formula that is amazing to use for all skin types, including sensitive and mature skin. We are so proud of this formula because it is vegan, cruelty-free, non-comedogenic and fragrance-free.

Hewitt: It is a beautiful formula. You can wear it in the morning as a makeup priming moisturizer or in the evening, and it’s been clinically tested for a long-lasting hydration, which means when you wake up in the morning, you’ll have plump, hydrated, dewy skin.

Q: What is the price range for the products?

Ireland: Our prices range from $32 to $93.

Q: Lastly, where can people shop the products?

Hewitt: Sephora Canada, both online and in-stores.
