Mask Time Review by Sam – August 2018

Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Estee from Mask Time for sending me these stunning boxes to review.

The battle of the masktime boxes is back and I’m so excited about it! I have been sent the glow setter and the glow starter box so I can compare them for you, showing you the best value for money and masks.

Before we get into the boxes let me tell you a little about masktime that’s if your not fed up with me raving about it!

Face masks addicts around the world can rejoice because Masktime brings some of the best Korean skincare to your door every month at hard to beat prices, in a carefully curated box tailored to the season, so your skin gets what it needs all year long. Estee a busy mum, has hit the nail on the head creating this box! Korean skincare is far superior, they are miles ahead with break through formulations and super cute innovative products to sort out any of your skin concerns. But that makes it expensive to import so by the time the masks hit our local shops they carry a hefty price tag and they can be mine boggling unless you are fluent in Korean. This is a brilliant way to try out new things and find what suits your skin without a huge outlay and hassle of shopping around or learning a new language.

As you all know I’m a lover of a good face mask, …ok…. I have a huge mask addiction and should probably attend a Mask rehab! So this box is right up my street.

If you missed the live battle of the boxes unboxing you can catch it here …

Then I found the contents card along with a thank you card and a card detailing this months skincare savior curation, along with a little sample.

As this is a battle of the boxes style here is my conclusion…

Get both! I’m deadly serious its so hard to choose! each one has its own unique aspect, perfect curation and unbeatable prices!

On one hand the Glowstarter box is a great introduction! So if its a small mask fix at minimal price you are after this is the box for you.

But on the other the Glowsetter has by far a better range of masks and some higher end ones as well and each item only worked out £2.14 per item, (a complete bargain) so if you are keen on trying a wide range of cool and fancy masks whilst getting in some serious masking time this is the box for you!
