MaskTime Glow Setter Review by Gemma – June 2019

Thank you so much to Estee at Masktime for sending me this box to review! It is one of my favourite boxes, having been a subscriber for a while prior to taking on this collaboration for Boxession! For those of you who are unfamiliar with MaskTime, they are a KBeauty Sheet Mask Subscription box. KBeauty is light years ahead of the rest when it comes to skincare, and their masks are second to none. I have never tried a KBeauty sheet mask I didn’t like!  There are a couple of different options for subscriptions, which I will go through a little later.

For now, you can catch the video of my unboxing of this box on our YouTube channel now (and subscribe if you haven’t already!):

I love their revamped packaging- a cute baby pink colour with the words ‘You’ve got it glowing on’ written in white on the lid. I really like this- it’s fresh, clean and new. I couldn’t wait to get into it and find the goodies inside! Here is what I found on opening:

Look how cute it all is! That’s another thing about KBeauty- it always looks adorable! This months theme is ‘Turn up the glow’ in collaboration with Korean brand Duft&Doft.

The first mask was the Pink Milk Mask x2 (RRP £8.00 for 2). This provides brightening, anti wrinkle and firming properties for a dewy and glowing complexion! It is infused with pearl to brighten dull skin and provide anti ageing benefits, as well as milk protein extracts to reduce dark spots, hydrate and heal acne! This mask fits so well- some sheet masks can slip or slide around your face but not this one! It stays in place amazingly, giving your skin time to feast on the nutritious pink milk essence! This has been ranked as the Number 1 face mask in Korea by GlowPick too! My skin LOVED this mask- I’m so glad I have another one!

The second was the Hydra Soother Deep Hydration Mask x2 (RRP £8.00 for 2). This is deeply moisturising and revitalising to help lock in the moisture for a rejuvenating effect. It contains Aloe Vera to provide a protective layer on the surface of the skin, rich in minerals and antioxidants to nourish and soothe irritated skin. It also contains Green Tea, which is an anti ageing hero! It helps to reduce fine lines and improve sun damage! Hyaluronic Acid is also included to help relieve dry skin, keep the water content in the skin and reducing the signs of ageing! I am 28, so not quite showing the signs of ageing just yet (touch wood), but it’s never too early to start prevention!

The third was SalmonVGene Hydro Active Mask x2 (RRP £8.00 for 2). This is soaked in a nourishing essence that is rich in Omega 3 amino acids and sodium DNA from caviar extracts, which are known to improve the skins rejuvenation process. Omega 3 helps to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays and prevents the breakdown of collagen and elastin, whilst the added Collagen promotes glowing and vibrant skin, helping to restore lost collagen fibres! I loved this mask and I am also loving the bright and colourful packaging of them all so far too- it really livens up my bathroom!

The fourth was Black Therapy Customized Refining Mask x2 (RRP £8.00 for 2). This provides a purifying and brightening effect to the skin and is great for sensitive and oily skin types! Whilst my skin isn’t oily, it can be quite sensitive, so it is great to know that this won’t cause irritations. This mask feels velvety to touch and it is made of a mineral rich material to help absorb all impurities from the skin. It is enriched with precious plant elements such as Lotus Flower to control the production of sebum and help to balance out oily skin whilst also improving elasticity and hydration, as well as Camu Camu, which is a fruit packed full of nutrients, vitamins and amino acids to provide anti inflammatory and antioxidant benefits! My skin felt so clean and looked a lot brighter after this- I am definitely loving this brand!

The final thing in this months box is slightly unusual for a face mask box- a Mini Hand Cream Set, 4 x 10ml (RRP £10). This contains 4 of Duft&Dofts signature fragrances- Pink Breeze, Stockholm Rose, Sophy Soapy and Sugar Delight. All the hand creams are enriched with Shea Butter, one of my favourite ingredients, as well as Vitamin E. They absorb so easily into the skin with no greasy after feel, protecting hands from all the we expose them to, as well as leaving them soft and supple, with a gorgeous scent! The ingredients include Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Collagen, Aloe Vera and Hyaluronan. They contain no nasties such as parabens, talc, surfactants or dyes. They are super cute, as is tradition with K Beauty, are small enough to take out and about and also would make a lovely gift if you can bare to part with them, which I can’t! My personal favourite scent is the Sugar Delight- I have such a sweet tooth!

A total RRP of £42!

The Prices.

This box has 2 options monthly.

The Glowstarter box is more of an introduction to Kbeauty sheet masks and is an extremely affordable £9.95 per month, with free shipping. This has 4 masks a month.

The Glowsetter box is £24.99 per month, again with free shipping. This has between 8-10 masks and is for the mask addicts amongst us (raise your hand, I won’t judge!). So a huge saving of £17.01!

Both boxes are shipped on the 2nd of the month and you can cancel anytime. It is billed monthly and there are no cancellation fees or hidden costs. The last day to order this box is the last day of the month.

But wait, there’s more!

We have an exclusive discount code! BOXESSIONX gives you a whopping 15% off your first box!

My verdict.

I could not love this box more if I tried. The chance to pamper, have some time for yourself and recharge with some high quality KBeauty sheet masks that suit the time of year perfectly! I sometimes struggle to know what my skin needs month to month but for some reason, Masktime knows! I am a mask addict, and this box fulfils all my needs and more. Who doesn’t want some well-deserved pamper time?
