Mask Time: a face mask subscription box

If you’re a long-time reader of this blog, you’ll probably have read at least one face mask review – having acne AND really dry skin, I’m always testing out new things to try and get my face looking presentable. Face masks are something that I use for this purpose but also if I want to chill out, or if I’m having a girly night; I remember being a kid and getting those 99p face masks from Home Bargains whenever my mates were coming to stay of a weekend. They’re just such a fun-but-also-good-for-you thing to do and that’s why I’m buzzing to be a brand ambassador for Mask Time, a Korean face mask subscription service that delivers face masks/Korean skincare to your door every month.


Korean skincare has been steadily gaining popularity in the Western world over the past few years, and rightly so – they use all sorts of interesting ingredients and innovative applicators, and genuinely work. I’ve tried a few bits in the past but when my first Mask Time box was delivered, I was so excited to see what was inside. I received the Glow Setter box (their premium plan, which is £29.95 per month) which was jam packed with face masks, and two bonus skincare items. The other plan is the Glow Starter which has less masks and retails for £12.95; it also only contains one bonus skincare item, and it must be mentioned that the boxes don’t contain bonus skincare items every month. You get a card that gives you all sorts of information about the masks, and also as a bonus you get to learn a new Korean word every month which just adds a whole new level of excitement to a skincare subscription box, if you ask me. Which you sort of did, because you’re reading this blog post.


My box contained a whopping eight masks as well as the two bonus skincare items - the masks are all completely different to anything I've ever tried before, and I'm so intrigued by the 77 Days Intensive Moisture Gloss Mask, which is a 4-step mask that comes with some sort of syringe, and by the FG Beauty Sky Pack which is aimed at frequent flyers and although I don't fly as frequently as I wish I could, this is a really good mask for dry skin so I can't wait to see how it works.

The two bonus skincare items in this box were the Urban Dollkiss Carbonated Bubble Gold Clay Mask (which I've tested already and really enjoyed using - it was a bit sting-y but overall didn't leave my skin feeling irritated, and I definitely felt cleansed after using it) and the Essence Gel Modelling Pack from Entia which consists of two gels that you mix together and apply to your face to lift and hydrate. 


All of the masks are so different to anything you'd typically find on the shelves of Superdrug, and that's what I think is so great about Mask Time - it gives us UK beauty-lovers a chance to try something new, something from another amazing culture, something that might just be the trick to your best skin days. I also think Mask Time is really well priced - £30 for 10 masks when some of them alone have RRPs of over a tenner is brilliant, and if you only want a few masks you're paying a lot less, but still getting some excellent skincare products. This is definitely a subscription box I'd recommend looking into!
