You don’t need to see me with a face mask on. Ever 🙂
I’ve followed the hype behind the Glamglow face masks for some time now, and understandably my attention has been captured. There has been A LOT of coverage, with bloggers, beauty editors and magazines giving it their seal of approval, including a number of beauty awards. Claims that it is used by A-listers before any red carpet event is bound to generate a lot of interest.
So, luckily for me, my Latest in Beauty box contained a tube of the supermud clearing treatment. This treatment is meant to leave me with ‘super clear super poreless skin’. And did it? No, not straight away. Skin was plump and clear looking, but I had a mini-breakout. Skin does look tightened though. And perhaps after this breakout, skin will be ‘super clear’. Big claims, but it didn’t deliver any more than my trusty Eve Lom rescue mask does on first use, especially with the ‘super poreless’ claim. In fact, the most ‘poreless’ I have ever been is when using Bliss steep clean. Maybe the results are more likely to be achieved with consistent use?
Don’t let this put you off. It hasn’t me. Yet. I have a couple more applications left in my 10ml tube, which I will use next week to see if I fare any better. Glamglow has 5 types of ‘mud’ to choose from; youthmud tinglexfoliate, powermud dualcleanse, thirstymud hydrating, brightmud eye, and supermud clearing (which you already know about)…so you are bound to find one that suits your skincare needs – whether you need a deep exfoliation to reveal more youthful skin, a deep cleanse using the power of oils, a hydrating treatment, an eye brightener, or a ‘super clearing’ of your skin. The names are really something else, aren’t they?
The youthmud tinglexfoliate treatment was the original and most hyped one, so I think I would like to try a sample of that before I pass my final judgement of Glamglow face masks. The masks are not cheap at £25 for 15ml* (the tube I am using is 10ml, out of which I will probably get 3 treatments) or £50 for 50ml*, so it would need to be extra, super and mega special for me to fork out that much…my Eve Lom one is £55 for 100ml, which I bought in January, and of which I have half a tub left after weekly usage – that is value for money with results that match the claims.
So, marks out of 10? I score it a 7/10. Points lost for; the price (1 point), the claim of super poreless when I didn’t up super poreless (1 point), a breakout the day after first use (1 point).
Anyone got a sample of the youthmud tinglexfoliate that they want to send me to try out and review? 🙂
* you can buy Glamglow at Space NK, online and instore.
I really like the Supermud mask. I used it yesterday and my skin looked glowy and flawless. I think I did have a mini breakout the first time I used it, so hopefully you’ll like it better with continued use.
I bought it on the Beauty Flash website, it’s on there for £33.50. I want to try the Brightmud eye treatment next, but can’t bring myself to spend that much right now. x
It’ll last me a while, I only use it on my T-zone. I’m not sure I’ll repurchase it though, there are cheaper options.
I’ve never used an eye mask either. I’ll let you know if I take the plunge! xx
