One of Australia’s most loved brands, Lano, has released a product that is said to rival the fiercely coveted Summer Friday’s Jet Lag mask. Both masks boast BIG hydration. Promising to nourish, refresh and renew, leaving skin plump, glowy and ready for anything. But, how similar are they? How do they compare? Is one better than the other? Let’s take a cheeky peek.
Upgrade your skin to a business-class complexion—no matter what time your red-eye gets in, or what time your head hits the pillow. This uber-dewy, hydrating mask soothes thirsty, stressed-out skin by steeping cells in a nourishing mix of vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants and gently exfoliating extracts. Skin looks instantly renewed, radiant and ready for anything.

This gel-creme mask is absolutely glorious. My skin literally just drinks it up and is all the better for it. Jet-Lag absorbs quickly and leaves my skin radiant, plump and just generally happier. It is surprisingly lightweight but full to the brim with hydration. I adore the multi-use aspect of this product, which makes the price tag a little easier to accept. However, I have read that some dry babes haven’t found this to be hydrating enough. You can read a detailed review of Jet-Lag here.

Aussie Flyer Review
Aussie Flyer is so gorgeously dense and creamy that you can tell from that first squirt that it is going to nourish like no other. It absorbs well considering the consistency but does leave behind a slightly waxy-feel (thanks to the lanolin). I don’t find this to be an issue, as it isn’t an oily or sticky residue. My skin is left feeling so soft and ridiculously plump and bouncy. I find that it works best as a sleeping mask, otherwise, it is a little too heavy for my oily skin.
Alright, let’s get down to the good stuff. How do they compare? Summer Fridays Jet-Lag is a gel-creme formula that absorbs much quicker than rich creamy Aussie-Flyer, leaving behind no residue at all. It sits much better under makeup as compared to Aussie-flyer, which can be a little heavy. Due to my oily skin, Jet-Lag is much more versatile and user-friendly. I believe that dry-skinned babes would be much more partial to Lano. Both masks are beautiful, leaving the skin so soft, smooth and youthful.
Do I have a favourite? I love both masks but for different reasons. Jet-Lag is amazing under makeup and to give my oily-skin a lovely lightweight boost of hydration. Whereas, Aussie-Flyer is much more creamy and heavy making it perfect for a deeply hydrating treatment as a sleeping mask. The price point for Lanolips Aussie Flyer is just too good to beat. Your skin type may determine which mask would suit you better so I would judge accordingly. But it is worth knowing, that despite the richness, Aussie Flyer still works fabulously for me, just not in all the ways that Jet-Lag does. Coming into Winter, I can envisage using Aussie-Flyer just a touch more, but in Summer, Jet-Lag would be my number 1.
