Back in April (a long time ago now!), masktime offered for me to work with them on a review of one of their sheet mask subscription boxes, which I couldn’t turn down. I’d seen their boxes on instagram a few times and always thought they looked amazing; they come at the end of every month, packed full of Korean sheet masks and other little goodies to try out. I’ve had a few months to try out the majority of these masks now and give you the verdict on the subscription box itself, so sit down and get ready – this post is going to be a long one!
Pin this for me please!
WHAT IS MASK TIME?
Mask Time is a monthly subscription box service which comes at the end of every month with around eleven Korean face masks and other skincare products inside for you to try out. Personally, I think 11 sheet masks a month is an amazing deal for £24.99; you’re getting more than two masks a week to try out. The box has lasted me well over one month!
Mask time also allow you to buy boxes from past months, or a smaller version of their glow setter monthly box called the glow starter. This box is £9.95 for four sheet masks which is really good for anyone on more of a budget and who wants to try out some new brands! What I think is really great is that you’re also able to purchase individual masks from their website, so if you really loved a mask from one box then you can stock up!
Take a look at the Mask Time website to see their prices and some more information on the subscription process. These boxes would be a great gift for someone, it’s such a cute idea for a birthday present, especially because they come so wonderfully packaged in tissue paper and the cutest box!
WHAT WAS INSIDE MY BOX?
I was sent the April Glow Setter Box, which is currently out of stock on the mask time website (really shows how good this box was, I am honestly so impressed!). It came with eleven products inside; nine of these were Korean sheet masks, and two of them were other Korean skincare bits (which you’ll see later!). I thought the box was really diverse; it catered for lots of skincare types, although I do think the sheet masks are made primarily for those who suffer from drier skin in need of hydration, which is why I’ve gotten on so well with those I’ve tried so far. They’ve all been extremely hydrating!
Inside the box you get a little card telling you about the box with a Korean word of the month, and you get to see it in a sentence. I thought this was a really cute touch to the box and the card was so pretty. The box itself was very pastel coloured, which I loved. There is also a little leaflet in the box which tells you all sorts about all the face masks.
Anyway, I’ll stop rambling and get into all of the masks!
The Art:Cell Aurora Pearl Mask – this mask was amazing. I was extremely impressed with it, from the packaging to how it left my skin feeling, absolutely everything was great. As you can see, it has the most stunning packaging ever, it’s a rainbow mermaid pattern and I was a bit devastated throwing it away! The mask itself was very hydrating and made my face feel so much brighter.
Medi Lab Black Rose Ampoule Mask Pack – I’m yet to try this mask, although the packaging is beautiful and I’ve heard amazing things about it, so it may be next on my list! This mask claims to deliver deep moisture and nutrients to the skin. It’s great for sensitive skin too! The mask itself is really thin, I’ve noticed that with some of these sheet masks they can be a bit fiddly to unfold and put onto your face – more often than not I end up ripping them a little, but they still work great!
Frienvita Whitening Filtering Yuja Vita C Mask – This mask might be my favourite out of the whole box. When I tried it, it was incredibly cooling and made my skin feel so hydrated and brightened, which was ideal as my skin is looking super dull at the moment (I think it might be all this stupidly hot weather!). The vitamin C in this mask helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots on the skin too.
Hectic It’s Pack Time 07:00 AM Mask – This sheet mask is one I haven’t yet tried, however it claims to be perfect for people with busy schedules as you can use it in the morning and it’s super fast! The essence is placed on one side of the sheet only for maximum absorption, and it says it lets you dry your hair without hair getting stuck to the mask, which is a cool idea! Overall, I’m not sure how likely I would be to use a face mask in the morning simply because I’m usually leaving the house with 5 minutes to spare, and I also prefer to use them as part of a ‘winding down’ routine before I go to bed.
Laneige Two Tone Brightening Sheet Mask – I absolutely loved this mask. It’s two different microfibre sheets to tackle different problems on your face; the pink coloured sheet is infused with super berry extract and works to brighten the complexion, whereas the blue coloured sheet has hydro iron mineral water to deeply hydrate. My face felt so amazing after this mask and it was so fun to use, plus I adore the packaging – it’s so pretty.
It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VE Mask – This mask has vitamin E in it to provide moisture and vitamin C to ensure healthy skin. After using this mask, my face felt really soft and deeply hydrated, and it was quite cooling too, and I found it removed any redness I was suffering with which might be down to the eucalyptus extract in the mask.
Re DNA Recovery Ampoule Mask Pack – This mask felt like it was more of a gel than the others, which made it really nice. It was different, but a good different. It made my skin feel really bouncy (can skin feel bouncy?) and very hydrated, but I didn’t notice if it brightened my skin very much or not. I’m not too fussed about brightening anyway, my dry skin just needs all the hydration it can get at the moment!
These last couple of masks I haven’t actually tried yet. The Rose Heart Daily Brightening Pink Mask is supposed to brighten your skin, and the rosewater in it is supposed to hydrate and resurface rough skin. What really catches my eye with this mask is the litte heart at the top is a detachable packet of moisturising cream to use after the mask, which means your skin is moisturised so so much with this mask. It sounds perfect to me. The Dewpiel Defence Mask Pore is supposed to pull dust particles away from the skin and stop bacteria breeding on the surface of the skin in order to keep your pores clean and unblocked. It also has ingredients like tea tree to soothe blemish prone skin; it sounds like a really good mask for the hot weather when my pores tend to be a bit clogged and in need of a deep cleanse!
The final two items in the box were little extra gifts, which is so exciting. The first one, MJ Care Premium Hand Pack, was what I used on my hands before prom. It made them so soft and my nails felt so strong afterwards, which made them look much better when they were painted. It’s like two gloves filled with a moisturising essence which you leave to soak into your hands and it makes them very intensely hydrated. The second, Salon De Tte Skin Tuning Recipe, is another I’m yet to use however it’s a mini glove which exfoliates your face, unclogs pores and gives it a really deep clean. I’m excited to use this and when I do you’ll definitely get to see it on my instagram stories, so follow me here to find out all about it!
If you’ve read that whole post, then I congratulate you because it was a long one! I’m so grateful to mask time for sending me out these amazing masks to try, and I would definitely recommend their subscription boxes to anyone looking to try out some amazing masks!
