GlamGlow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment



There has been quite a bit of hype surrounding the GlamGlow products recently and I must admit that I was completely sucked in. After reading that the Super-Mud Clearing Treatment* can help clear your pores, get rid of blemishes, breakouts and blackheads, I thought I was on to a real winner. However, I unfortunately can't say that it's worked in my favour so far.

I've only tried this twice as I had a couple of samples to test out, so I guess I can't be completely sure whether it works well for me or not. However, my reaction from what i've used so far hasn't been overly favourable.

Some people spoke about the mask visibly sucking the dirt from their pores but I experienced nothing of the sort. I applied the dark grey/green clay mask and let it dry to a light grey/green colour before removing it. Afterwards my skin didn't look overly different. During the following days, I started to get dry patches on my cheeks and the skin on my nose started to flake. That was about the only result I got.

I'm confused because I thought this mask was going to be amazing. It's quite pricey for a full-sized pot so I was expecting amazing things, but this personally didn't work for me. I would much rather spend £6 on the Cupcake Mask from Lush and get 3 glorious weeks worth of product out of it.

Have you tried this mask? How did it perform for you?

  2. I've been wanting to try this for ages, and I'm so glad to have read your honest review of it because you have confirmed exactly what I suspected. So many times, I have seen people going way over the top about products and exaggerating what they actually do, and it's quite frustrating because one of the main reasons people read beauty blogs is to get to the truth. I've been so disappointed by some of the products I bought in the past due to rave reviews. I know that in some ways they do work differently for different people, but still.
    Think I'll give this one a miss, so thank you for saving me the small fortune a tub of it would have cost me :)

    1. As you say, everyone reacts differently but I'm glad that my review helped you :)
      I know what you mean about being disappointed about products that have had rave reviews and aren't amazing when you try them. That was kind of my response to this. xxo
