WHEN Travelmate and Glamour Base Sheets Masks | Review

Press Sample Powered by Brandbacker

Sheet masks have gained considerable traction in the beauty world in the last few years, and I am among the many to sing their praises. I love their ease of use, their novelty, and their efficacy. While I have tried a great many at wildly varying price points, I definitely love finding affordable variants that deliver real results. The latest sheet masks to gain my approval are WHEN Travelmate and Glamour Base.

WHEN uses the best-proven, all-natural bio-cellulose sheet material and high quality serum formulated with gentle and effective ingredients, and we have chosen you to try our premium masks on. 

WHEN Makes 5 different sheet masks:

Travelmate: Great for globe-trotting girls to refresh skin with chamomile flower water
10:00 PM: Helps in restoring tired, worn out skin using watermelon extract
Snow Magic: Brightens skin when it's lacking glow using aloe vera
Glamour Base: Preps skin perfectly for makeup and any night out
The Last Choice: The ultimate moisturizer for thirsty skin, and perfect for spring transition

WHEN Masks:
Contain NO parabens, NO sulfates, NO triclosan.
Total phenoxyethanol content: less than 0.05%
Compliant with Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council

How to use WHEN Sheet Masks:
WHEN Travelmate is a mask that was conceived to refresh your skin while traveling. It refreshes and deeply hydrates skin in order to protect it against hours of exposure to the elements. It is not a sunscreen, and should not be used instead of a sunscreen, but it does give the skin a tremendous dose of hydration that plumps and nourishes. I was not traveling when I tested this mask, but I noticed the toy skin was ultra-hydrated, luminous and dewy all day long.

This mask is described as a "soft, jelly-like" sheet mask that is generously filled with serum, however there is a lot of serum that falls to the bottom of the pouch that should be used on the neck, décolleté and hands for maximum effect. 

According to WHEN,

When you are on the road, take along When Travelmate to help refresh your skin from hours in the sun, wind and dry air. When Travelmate will go the distance with you. Don’t leave home without it!

The soft, jelly like mask sheet is made from coconut juice and is infused with light, conforting serum. When Travelmate contains chamomile and Swiss Alpine herb extracts to gently hydrate and soothe skin. All When masks contain hyaluronic acid and ginseng extracts to help keep skin healthy.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Butylene glycol, Glycerin, Dicaprylyl carbonate, Chamomilla recutita flower water, Polyacrylate 13, Saccharide isomerate, Citrus grandis seed extract, Bambusa textilis stem extract, Pinus palustris leaf extract, Caprylyl glycol, Polyisobutene, Ethylhexylglycerin, Alcohol, 1,2 Hexanediol, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitan isostearate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium hyaluronate, Arnica montana flower extract, Artemisia absinthium extract, Achillea millefolium extract, Gentiana lutea root extract, Citric acid, Sodium citrate, Disodium EDTA, Colloidal platinum, Panax ginseng extract, Parfum (Fragrance), Limonene, Linalool. 

Recommended usage: 2-3 times a week but can be used as often as desired as a regular part of your skin care regime. 
Tips from WHEN:

BE CLEAN. Apply the mask using CLEAN hands on CLEAN face. 
BE GENEROUS. The pool of serum left in the pouch should be used to give your neck, hands, arms, legs, feet and what-not a taste of love as well. 
ENHANCE. Applying a drop or two of your favorite face oil after using When masks will enhance the effect of the treatment.
KEEP THE TIME. Leaving on the mask for longer than the recommended time may increase the temperature of the skin and can lead to rise in 
  bacteria count on the skin, causing acne and other malicious problems. And please DON’T FALL ASLEEP wearing When masks. 
AS OFTEN AS YOU PLEASE. We recommend using When masks a couple of times a week, but would not stop you from using them everyday. 
BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR. When mask is love for your skin - not a Halloween prop to frighten your friends and neighbors.
SHARE. You are welcome to share your tips and how-to’s on our social network!
When Glamour Base is a really wonderful mask that was created in order to essentially function like a mega face primer and mask in one. It plumps and smooths skin to perfection– creating the perfect base for makeup. Skin is left soft, supple, hydrated and luminous– not to mention that your makeup stays put all day and looks sensational.

  2. I have the one on the left in my stash. Several times I've taken it with me on a trip and forgotten to use it. I am hoping it is fantastically hydrating after flying. Will take it on my trip to Alaska.

    1. Because of the physical masks themselves, or because you haven't tried any that worked for your skin?
