Hey! So this is a rather exciting post as this post is going up on my birthday! i am most likely wearing one of these masks as you read this actually, as i am a massive mask fan, i use one at least once a week generally twice a week. I am combo/oily skinned so i often go for clay/charcoal masks. So you can imagine how excited i was when i was very kindly sent the july 2018 box from mask time!
Now mask time is a face mask subscription box, regardless of the box you pick you get a selection of korean face masks (normally sheet masks) and a skincare item or two sometimes. You can go for the glow setter monthly box that costs £24.99 for 11 masks, or you can go for the glow starter box which is £9.95 for 4 face masks, which basically means you get one a week, perfect! Every box is sent out on the 2nd of every month and with free shipping, always nice!
On top of this, you can also buy previous months boxes if you so wish and you can also buy the masks you try individually so if you really fall in love with a mask you can re-purchase it!
So, i got the july 2018 mask time glow starter box.
A really cute touch in the boxes is that inside is a little card explaining the box, and on the card is a little korean sentence so you can try and learn a korean word, and you get to learn a new word every box which is really cute.
As you can see, the box comes really nicely packaged and wrapped and inside is the lovely sheet masks! and as you can see the masks are all targeted towards dealing with spots, oily skin and pores, so up my street.
The skincare “extra” this month is rather crazy, a full sized urban dollkiss carbonated bubble charcoal clay mask (RRP £14.99). Yep, the extra is worth more than the box itself! i have wanted to try one of these bubble masks for ages, and the day before this arrived i actually almost bought one so this was really good timing. The mask arrives with a spatula that you use to apply an even layer to your face, avoiding the eyes & lips and then you wait around 5 minutes for the mask to bubble and foam up. And it really does! it bubbles and foams on your face, and you can actually feel it fizzing on your face, you then wash it off like you would any other mask. Though i do suggest you crush the bubbles first because that was my favourite bit! i really love the fun factor of this mask, and it is very cleansing and left my skin feeling very clean, it might be too much in the winter but after the heat wave we had it was honestly just what my skin needed.
First up we have the TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL egg cream mask pore tightening RRP £4.80 – I was equal parts scared and excited to see this! i know that using egg extract to help with pores is big in Korea but still i find it a little odd. Basically the premise of these sheet mask is its a very soft microfiber sheet infused with albumen, which is egg white extract and vinegar to target and help with oily skin and enlarged pores. I havent tried this one yet, its that feeling of i want too but, eggs? i will try this and report back at some point!
Next is the ROYAL SKIN real mud mask RRP £3.00 and is made from 100% boryeong mud, this basically sounds like one of those masks that does pretty much everything! moisturises, soothes, brightens and purifies as well as being anti-oxidant, anti-aging and anti- irritation so it really does seem like it can do a little bit of everything.
The ESFOLIO volcanic ash essence mask RRP £3.00, Not only does this mask have cute packaging, this mask is packed of volcanic ash that helps drag out dirt and other gunk in your skin so the other good things in the mask like ginseng can do even more good. I tried this mask yesterday and it was lovely! the mask itself is very wet, it feels super cooling on the skin and my skin felt very hydrated the whole day.
PONYBROWN PLUS Skin hue clearing black mask RRP £3.50, now you know the cute packaging i mentioned? well this mask has it even more! i mean how cute! Now this mask is another one that can do basically everything, though it is even tested by the korea semyang university so we know it works and is ok to use on sensitive skins.
So there you have it! all in all honestly i really like this subscription box, i love the fact that even in the cheaper option you have enough to do 1 a week and you can buy previous boxes if you missed one you really wanted to try. This is a lovely way to treat yourself once a month or as a gift to any other face mask fan you know.
This was sent to me for review, this does not effect or change my opinion or what i may say about the product.
