There has been a serious amount of hype surrounding the Glam Glow range. There are 5 products available in the Glaw Glow range. Glam Glow Supermud, which is said to help combat breakouts, black and white heads and draw out any dirt or congestions. Thirsty mud, which is said to deliver instant hydration to the skin. Power mud, which is a deep cleaning treatment to clear out the build up of oil, dirt and makeup. Bright mud which promises to minimize puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines while brightening and hydrating the eyes.Finally the original and the one I tried, The Glam Glow Super Mud.
The Glam Glow youth Mud is an exfoliating mask which is said to leave your face radiant, glowing and smoother. While at the same time giving your skin a tighter texture and pores. With all these claims and a heavy price tag, this mask has a high expectations to live up to and for me it sadly falls short.
I was kindly given 2 sachets of the Youth Mud to try by Brown Sugar. As I had an important event on Saturday, I decided that Friday night was the perfect time to give this wonder mask a go. One sample sachet is enough for a single application. When I applied the mask, a whole load of lumpy bits applied with it, that I thought the inside of the packaging had come out with the mask. Turns out it was some sort of weeds, and to be honest, I’m not entirely sure of just who useful they are! The mask also tingles a little when applied, but nothing uncomfortable. It dries onto your face as the time progresses, and hardens like a regular mask.
I left the mask on for about 15 minutes as recommended and washed it off with luke warm water, while massaging my face in circular motions. When I first took the mask off my skin felt super soft and it did look brighter. Sadly this is where the benefits end for me, as the next day I had a horrific time with how my makeup sat. I don’t know how, but the mask left my skin in worse condition than before I applied it. It was oily, blotchy and my makeup didn’t sit right at all. I was devastated, as I needed my makeup to be spot on on Saturday, as I was being filmed for a promotional video. I’m dreading how my makeup is going to look on camera. Not only that, I’ve had a fairly bad breakout since I applied this mask. I never get spots, so I’m fairly miffed about this.
When I initially posted on Facebook that I was giving Glam Glow a go, so many of you expressed your love of this mask. However, it is just not for me. That’s not to say it is a bad product, I personally just didn’t like it at all. Many bloggers have had fabulous results, but it’s just not for me. However, at €57.50 for a 50ml tube, you would be far better off splashing a little bit extra on the Philosophy micro delivery peel. I get way more impressive results straight away, than with Glam Glow. To me Glam Glow, doesn’t do anything special that a regular mud mask can’t do.
