Mask Time - Limited Edition Holiday Box Review | December 2017

Sunday, 21 January 2018

Subscriptions boxes are a fantastic idea, especially for the indecisive or those who enjoy a little surprise arriving at their door every one in a while. More and more lately I'm noticing there are some K-beauty related boxes making an appearance with the increased popularity of the beauty products here in the West. This personally makes me a happy little bunny as it means I have a bit of variety to choose from if I want to order some form of box. Mask Time contacted me last month to offer me their Limited Edition Holiday Box, one that contains 12 sheet masks along with a surprise gift from the owners. Today, I will be giving an overview of their service and my experience with them. I will not be reviewing the products in this post, but some may make an appearance in the future.

With it being a box specifically for Christmas, the box is cutely festive with it's bright red colour, santa hats and the little decorations. The box itself is quite sturdy and didn't get damaged in transit or even when it came (rather loudly) through my letter box. It's a robust little thing. Even from this alone I could tell that there is a lot of effort put in to make sure the product is of a high quality. Everything was wrapped up in a gold paper and secured with a sticker featuring Mask Time's logo.  

Alongside the actual masks (and a couple of samples), you are given a little booklet. This contains all the information you need to in regards to the selection you have in your box. You are given a little 101 of how to apply and use sheet masks too (which is helpful if you're a newbie). From the benefits of the mask, to any alternative instructions necessary for use alongside the RRP to let you know the full value of the box itself. This is especially useful if you can't read Korean or like me, you're not really that fluent and can only understand little parts. Featured were also two little cards, one giving you a little information on the box and the other thanking your for your order.

Left To Right | Leaders Insolution Aloe Soothing Skin Renewal Mask, Etude House 0.2mm Pearl Mask (I have used other variants), ☆ Acwell Rice Brightening Daanji Mask, ☆ Entia No Filter Brightening Camer Mask (one that has been popping up in the AB community recently and has been on my wishlist!), ☆ Rapiel Timeless Line-Shot Bio Mask (yep that is a sheet mask) and ☆ 16 Brand Hibiscus Tea Mask.

Left to Right | The Face Shop Winter Padding Mask, ☆ Make P:rem Blending Me Nourishing Oil Mask, The Face Shop Real Nature Red Ginseng Mask (I have actually used this mask in the past and liked it), ☆ Merbliss Nurse Healing Mask, Etude House Heating Eye Mask (I haven't used an eye mask of this type before but I'm excited to try) and ☆ Verite Very Good Morning and Very Good Night Mask.

The ☆ symbol designates the brands that are new to me and as you can see, thanks to this box there are a few! They are ones I have heard of (most of them anyway) but just haven't gotten myself around to using. The selection is massive and the benefits of each mask vary as well. The variety allows for you to help find a solution to certain skin ailments you may suffer from or general improvements. 

The surprise gift for Christmas was the A'pieu Mochalipccino Coffee Lip Scrub. You will all know by now that A'pieu is one of my top brands and I've been feeling lately that my lips need a little lip scrub added to their daily routine so it feels like they read my mind. Especially handy for winter time when your lips are more susceptible to dryness through a combination of cold weather and the increase of needing the heating on when you are indoors.

The box was shipped on the 20th of December and arrived on the 22nd. I honestly wasn't expecting it to arrive before Christmas due to how the posting can be at that time of year so it was like a nice little Christmas present coming through the door. Due to this being a UK brand, they allow free shipping in the UK only.

I would 100% subscribe to this, even if only to order one every couple of months to stock up on my masks when my stack begins to run low. The selection I received was wide and there are so many brands I have wanted to try for a while featured in here, so it's a perfect excuse for me to try some masks from new brands and learn to find the ones I love for certain skincare needs I may have at moments in time.

The box is priced at £24.99, the boxes normally contain 8 masks and I find that is a fair price for the masks combined, along with the packaging and effort they put into making sure you have all the information you need to use your mask correctly and to the best benefit.

I'm very thankful I was given this opportunity by Mask Time to review one of their boxes and I'm going to have a lot of fun trying these masks out. I would highly recommend this to any K-beauty enthusiast who fancies getting their hands on even more masks or even for those interested in trying sheet masks for the first time. 

This is the perfect kick start for myself, someone who used to sheet mask every week to get back into the swing of things and let my skin have the glow it so desires.

10/10 in all aspects really. There is nothing I can complain about the service or the packaging/products received. So overall, it's been a fantastic experience and I hope in the near future to go ahead and get another box to see what goodies they have in store.

Be sure to check out the website to find out more information and also pop on over to their instagram (it's super cutely laid out)! Let me know if you decide to give them a try! I hope you'll keep an eye out for reviews of these masks as part of my Mask Monday, which I'm making a little change to in the fact I will not be featuring it on the blog every single Monday, but every few Monday's instead.

This product was sent to me for review purposes, however all views in this post are 100% my own honest opinions.
