Mask Time Glow Starter & Glow Setter Review by Sam – October 2018

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

Masktime is currently sweeping the beauty box market like a storm, it brings you the latest top Korean sheet masks to your doorstep each month in a curated box, at an extremely reasonable price. Getting the latest must-have K beauty skincare has been made easy and affordable thanks to Estee. Before masktime, these masks were so hard to come by and uber expensive to import, but with Korean skincare being light years ahead of our European market it made them the must-have item for beauty and skincare fanatics around the world.

I have discovered some super cute gems since I have been getting mask time, you can see me unboxing and testing out one of Septembers masks here………

The Glow Starter Box

This is like an introductory box to Korean sheet masks and comes with 4-5 amazing masks and K beauty products, Its the perfect way to become a face mask addict. This box is only £9.95 or just £8.46 when you use our exclusive discount code SAM15 making masking affordable for everyone. Inside the small but mighty glow starter box, I found.

FACEGOOD Eternal Secret Sample

I love it when you get to try new things for free! Its a minefield for us non-Korean speakers to find great Korean products that work for us and the little extra samples like this one allow us to do that without a huge outlay and a confusion headache. They are so handy to travel with as well, slipping into the smallest of purses.

Acwell Drinks Purifying Daanji Mask – RRP £3.00

This mask uses natural, fermented ingredients derived from Korean traditional medicine to impart skin with intense moisture. It comes soaked in an essence full of rice wine extract to seriously soothe irritated skin. This sheet mask is composed of three layers of bamboo fibre coated with biocellulose to perfectly fit the contours of your face. Free of parabens, talc, mineral oil, and sulfates, this sheet mask is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. I do love a biocellulose mask they fit the face so well and stay on meaning you can get on with your day whilst it works its magic if you want to.

Blooming Cell Dual Effect Mask Blue – RRP £3.50

This is the mask you can see me testing during my live unboxing and what a wonder mask it is. Although Blooming Cell advertises it’s sheet mask to have a dual effect, this Calming Project mask actually has a triple effect of moisturizing, calming, and enhancing the skin all at the same time! The essence within the mask contains portulaca extract, witch hazel extract, aloe vera extract, and honey extract to help calm and restore the skin from any scars, flare-ups, or breakouts. Additionally, the camellia flower extract works to tone and brighten the overall appearance of the skin.

 DAYCELL X GUMMY You Are My Everything Mask – RRP £3.00

Iv not tried this mask yet but am looking forward to it! This mask is a collaboration between Daycell and K-Pop singer Gummy. “You Are My Everything” is the title of her 2017 mega-hit from the Korean drama Descendants of the Rising Sun (for you K-Drama fans out there!). This mask contains marine collagen to deeply moisturize the skin and help it retain the moisture it soaked up. (“Yes,” says our skin, “…hydration, you are my everything.”)

This mask improves the texture of the skin, smoothing and softening it. Tea tree soothes the skin and prevents imperfections. made without Parabens, synthetic dyes, benzophenone, mineral oil or animal derived ingredients.

I love it when you get to try new things for free!

They are so handy to travel with as well, slipping into the smallest of purses with ease.

Aroma Yong Mandarin Fresh Aromatherapy Mask – RRP £3.50

OMG, this mask smells divine, it really is a wake up in a packet and I love the fact its made using material extracted from the eucalyptus tree making it biodegradable it’s literally a guilt-free pleasure. The formulation is amazing using an extract of organic Opuntia cccinllifera fruit (cactus fruits of Jeju) that contains the pure nature of Jeju Island. It boasts a Skin Barrier Protection Coating. Jojoba seed oil to give a dual moisturizing effect that locks in moisture and it has a highly nutritive milk type essence formula to create Strong whitening and elasticity enhancing effect.

 Blossom Jeju Red Camellia Soombi Soy 2 step Mask – RRP £4.99

I’m saving this ingenious two-step mask for when I get back from holiday. This mask is said to harnesses the power of luxurious, 100% pure Jeju Camellia oil and a silky sheet mask to create a nourishing, super-hydrating masking treatment that leaves skin unbelievably smooth and supple. It gets to work plumping and nourishing tired, depleted skin. Steps 1 + 2 combine to create an essence-cocktail perfect for banishing dullness. Enriched with Hyaluronic acid to plump and rebuild the surface layers of the skin, along with Rosemary and Sweet Pea extracts to soothe. The addition of skin-brightening Licorice extract helps to fight hyperpigmentation and dark spots, while Broccoli and Soybean extracts heal and help the skin to glow.

Dewpiel Defense Mask Pore – RRP £4.00

I am so glad to see this mask again it was one of my favourites featured in the April glow setter box. This mask works overtime to help defend your pores! The sheet is made from a special Micro Away fabric that it pulls away from from the dust particles from the skin and attaches itself to the gaps within the fabric of the mask, magic! This stops bacteria breeding on the surface of the skin, thus helping pores to stay clean and unblocked. It did not disappoint the mask itself was thick and strangely smooth, with good saturation. Needless to say, this has been added to my must repurchase list! My pores had practically vanished and this lasted well into the next day! There was less texture in my skin and overall it looked and felt as smooth as a baby’s derrière.

Beauty Bakery Aqua Marine Moisture Mask – RRP 3.00

This sheet mask contains marine collagen extracted from clean oceans, which moisturize your skin. Pure deep ocean water with rich minerals supply moisture and nutrients deep into the skin and help to keep the skin bright. This really did make my skin glow, it looked so healthy and luminous, eat your heart out, pregnant ladies.

Lyajin Her Story – Aqua Mask – RRP £4.00

This one is going to be my in-flight rescue to revive my skin from all that nasty circulated air because it sounds truly amazing! This is what the card says……. What is your story behind your beautiful, healthy, glowing skin? With ingredients that give you anti-ageing benefits, this mask will keep your beautiful skin looking young and fresh! This mask is formulated with Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Water – Helps to strengthen the collagen in your skin and improves the skin’s flexibility, resulting in smoother and firmer skin. Sea Water – Contains minerals to help strengthen the skin’s barrier, while also hydrating and soothing the skin. Hyaluronic Acid – A powerful humectant that keeps the skin plump and hydrated. Some bold claims there I can’t wait to find out if it the rescue remedy it claims to be.

INNISFREE Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing – RRP £4.00

I love, love, love INNISFREE masks I have never been let down by one yet and this one is no exception! This is a 2 piece mask, it comes in 2 sections, the T-zone and the U-zone this allows for more movement of your face. Super handy if you are a mum because you know as soon as you put on a mask your little one needs to know the where, how’s and why’s of the world haha. I could feel the Jeju kelp and marine collagen working deep into my skin leaving it feeling clean, revived and refreshed. I instantly noticed that my skin looked firmer, smoother and my make up applied like a dream after using it.

Medius Cream Mask – Gold Sericin – RRP £4.00

Another one that’s taking a trip to Spain! Apparently, this mask is perfect for dryer climates ( lol you can see why it’s coming with me now). Its rich cream formulation is said to create a barrier locking in all the goodness to keep you hydrated wherever you go. Formulated with a silk protein to aid in skin healing, maximize collagen production and minimise wrinkles. Meadowfoam seed oil is rich in antioxidants to soften and moisturise, whilst our good old friend hyaluronic acid retains water and leaves you feeling plump and bouncy.

NOTS Soothing Multi-Gel Mask- RRP £4.50

This mask contains a jelly-like essence that is extremely hydrating and cool to the touch. Ingredients used in this mask such as aloe vera, bamboo, and cucumber extract, work to cool down your face if it has been exposed to too much sunlight or if your skin is experiencing irritation from the cold. The essence for this mask can be used not only on your face but even on your arms and legs, making it a great multi-use mask! The subtle aloe vera scent will definitely calm your senses and get you relaxed in no time! I was honestly shook by this mask it felt so nice against my skin and the cooling effect is real these are must-have masks in your collection, I need more!

Another fab brand I have found thanks to mask time this mask contains no preservatives and is perfect for dry and sensitive skin.
