Masktime Glow Starter review by Gemma- November 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!):

They have revamped their packaging for Glow Starter too- it now comes in a metallic reseal able bag, rather than a box, which will definitely save the dreaded read card from the postie if you are not in to receive it!

This month’s theme is Get Your Pink On, in line with Breast Cancer Awareness and once again, it does not disappoint!

The first mask this month is by The Face Shop and is the Rice Water Bright Mask (RRP £3.00). This is a moisture rich mask formulated with a milky emulsion like essence to help dull and lacklustre skin look soft and radiant. Your skin will love these ingredients:

  • Rice Water, which helps to soothe eczema and brighten areas of hyperpigmentation.
  • Vitamin A, which protects against UV damage, smoothes out wrinkles and helps to clear acne.

I do sometimes struggle with eczema at this time of year and I can get the occasional breakout due to the change in weather, so I can see this mask becoming a staple in my collection- you can never have too many!

The second mask is by a brand I have not actually heard of- Shionle Pore and Spot Care Mask (RRP £3.00). This works absolute magic on those pesky unwanted pores and blemishes! Your skin will love these ingredients:

  • Tea Tree Extract, which helps to treat acne due to its natural antiseptic properties, as well as soothing redness and irritation.
  • Pinus Palustris Leaf Extract, which is has antioxidant properties to fight free radicals and prevent wrinkles and skin ageing.
  • Chondrus Crispus Powder, which is packed with vitamins and minerals to hydrate the skin as well as protect from UV rays.

I absolutely loved this mask- I have a couple of blemishes on my chin currently due to the change in climate, which my skin is sensitive to, and this not only reduced their size but also made them look less red and inflamed! Absolutely amazing- a must re purchase!

The third mask is NOHJ SSUL Banana Man Snail Mask (RRP £3.00). This mask is especially good for oily skin types as it helps to heal acne without that greasy after feel! Your skin will love these ingredients:

  • Snail Mucin, which helps skin cells to regenerate, promotes skin elasticity and heals inflammation.
  • Banana Fruit Extract, which helps to firm and tighten skin whilst deeply moisturising.

I adored the packaging on this- KBeauty is always so cute! I am yet to try this, as my skin isn’t really oily but sometimes around a certain time of the month (you know what I mean, ladies!), it can be a little oilier than usual. I will save this mask for then, as I feel it will be a god send!

The fourth and final mask this month is a little different to the norm, in a good way of course! Bling Pop Shea Butter Foot Mask (RRP £3.00). At this time of year, we tend to get drier skin, and not just on our faces! This helps you to say goodbye to chapped and flaky feet! Your skin will love these ingredients:

  • Shea Butter, which reduces inflammation, provides relief to dry and itchy skin and helps to fight signs of ageing.
  • Vitamin E, which helps the appearance of eczema and dermatitis.

I do tend to neglect my feet, which I know I shouldn’t as they do a lot for me day to day! I am going to make it my mission to pamper my feet this month using this mask- I have a work event coming up so I may use it before that!

So a total RRP this month of £12.00!

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. So a saving here of £2.05!

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!).

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?
