Patchology - Targeted Masks That Work. Super Fast Too.

Sheet masks are all the rage, but not all are created equal. And sometimes you want to target a specific area - say eyes or lips - and not do everything at once.

Patchology offers it all. 

Developed by a team of transdermal patch experts (who knew there was such a thing) and beauty industry veterans, Patchology patches and masks are filled with "carefully researched and selected for their proven performance" cosmeceutical ingredients. What this means is that you are getting a concentrated dose of effective and potent anti-aging fighters and hydration that work much faster than topical creams and serums.

Because you don't always have a free evening to sit around and have a beauty sesh.  Because more often than not, you need a quick fix. You need help right now.

And I'm here to tell you that they make good on their claims - you get rapid relief and better skin in mere minutes and the masks adhere quite well. I found their fit to be among the best I've tried thus far. And the fresh scents are subtle enough to be pleasant without cloying or distracting.

Take a closer look:

Exfoliate FlashMasque 5 Minute Facial Sheets
(4 masques per pouch)

I haven't come across a lot of exfoliating masks, so if you're not in the mood to do a lengthy scrub or have to wash your face afterwards, if you're in a time crunch or just simply want quick results (most masks require 15-20 minutes), this cloth mask is it.

Using papaya proteinase and lactic acid, your skin gets a serious polish and renewal. I absolutely love that it sloughs away dead skin cells without you having to lift a finger except to put the mask on. The result? Beautiful soft and smooth skin in less time than it takes to make resos at your favourite restaurant.  

- Hydrate FlashMasque 5 Minute Facial Sheets
(4 masques per pouch)

You know when you've plumped the pillows on your sofa or on the bed, what a difference it makes (that's why you see hotels doing it all the time)? Think of these hydrating masks as a plumper for your face.

Like a refreshing shower for your face, your skin gets drenched with moisturizers that you'll feel well after you've removed the mask filled with nourishing ingredients such as vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid.

So if your skin feels dry and in need of a dewy boost, get yourself this serious encapsulated waterfall. You'll feel as if you've sent your skin on a sunny vacay. All in just five minutes.

- lluminate FlashMasque 5 Minute Facial Sheets 
(4 masques per pouch)

I admit it - I am completely addicted to brightening my skin It makes all the difference in my appearance, which can be very unremarkable and dull on its own.

A deep infusion of ingredients including grapefruit seed extracts and licorice are delivered via sheet mask while a floral fragrance wafts nearby. Ahh, this is bliss.

No wait, the bliss comes when you remove the mask and are met with not just even skin tone, but a face that is magically transformed as if a team of pros from hit TV shows and magazine shoots have taken over, where faces are not just lit, but illuminated.

You glow, you radiate, you shine (without being the least bit shiny). It's that look that you used to achieve only through:

1. a great night's sleep
2. a relaxing vacation where the day started with tropical cocktails
3. a good sexy romp
4. That moment between the third and forth tequila where you took over the dance floor and slayed.

And now you can get it anytime you want it. And in just five minutes to boot. 

I'm stockpiling these. I suggest you do the same.

- Eye Revive Flashpatch 5 Minute Hydrogels 
(30 pairs per jar)

Just because you didn't get a good night's sleep last night doesn't mean you have to look like it.

These cooling, refreshing and moisturizing eye patches go to work on those tired eyes in just five minutes.

Hydrogel patches in the shape of yin and yang symbols are sopping with powerful ingredients such as hydrolyzed collagen and caffeine and adhere beautifully under your pretty but pooped peepers.

You can feel the hydration seeping into your skin. Suddenly, you even feel less tired thanks to these little wonders - and you haven't even stepped near the coffee maker yet.

I think of it as a kind of superhero mask you can apply and moments later, you are a better version of yourself than just five minutes ago. Stronger and wide-eyed, you are ready for whatever comes your way. 

-  Lip Renewal FlashPatch 5 Minute Hydrogels 
(24 per jar)

These are like nothing else I've ever used before. They look kind of cartoonish - like a modern Betty Boop prop - but boy do they work. Rubbery (latex-free) hydrogel see-thru pink, sparkly lip cutouts go over your lips (and outside my natural lip lines) and instantly soothe and cool. 

Not only do you get softer, smoother lips, they feel injected with hydration, thanks to green tea extract, peptides and niacinamide (vitamin B3). And this delicate, fun pout-shaped mask works on those vertical lines that have been making their appearance, and even defines their shape and volume. So your lips look like your own, only better. 

And it works in just five minutes, so you can slap one on right before heading out the door before work/date night/the gym/wherever you need to get to.

That's my kind of beauty - quick and efficient. And the added bonus? I'm all the more kissable now. Mwah. xo

Shop Patchology right now. Because not only are they making phenomenal targeted masks and patches for your face, they're working on ones for your other body parts, like hands and legs. That, I want to be a part of.
