MaskTime S.O.S Boxes Review By Sam -December 2018

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

If you haven’t read my other Mask Time reviews or heard me talk about them, (what sheet mask have you been hiding under?) I will give you a little back story. Estee a bust mum of 2 who has a passion for great skin care launched Mask Time a year ago to make the most revolutionary Korean skincare easily available and affordable for all. First we saw the glow setter box – a premium box chocked full of all the sheet masks you need in your life. Then was the glow starter – an introductory style sheet mask box at pocket money prices. And now the latest edition to the Mask Time family the much awaited Save Our Skin boxes (S.O.S) launched for the RuPaul’s Drag Race convention.

Each of the three new Save Our Skin boxes are focused and personalised to one skin type, meaning your skin is 100% getting exactly what it needs! you can check out the contents in my live unboxing here…

The three boxes based on skin types are Dry , Combination and oily. They were created so you can be sure your skin is getting only the best of the best to suit it’s needs. Each box comes delivered via royal mail, inside the box packed with a gorgeous sparkly black tissue paper sealed with the Mask time logo.  A product information card and a information card for each box type is set neatly on top of the masks.
