This New Skincare Brand's 5-Minute Face Masks Are Ideal For The Time-Starved

It'll shave off time in the morning and night.

Women these days are constantly strapped for time and thus, prefer skincare products that are not only really effective but time-saving as well. One step that does require a little bit more time is masking. Having a sheet mask on for 15-30 minutes may not be the most ideal in the mornings (or even at night when all you want to do is head to bed), which is why when we heard of this new skincare brand, we were ecstatic.

Known as Patchology, the American skincare brand focuses on creating sheet masks and patches that only require five minutes of your time, yet reportedly delivers the same effects as any other mask would thanks to its Hydra Surge5 Moisture System which accelerates the delivery of essential ingredients. Not only are there sheet masks for your entire face, but the brand has also created a range of masks targeted at different areas of your face such as lips and under eyes.

Besides its efficacy, we also love the brand’s quirky packaging and tongue-in-cheek product names. Above, we pick out 10 products to try.

Patchology is available at Metro Causeway Point, Metro CenterPoint, Robinsons the Heeren, Robinsons Raffles City, Robinsons JEM, and will be in Tangs Vivocity.
