There’s been a lot of buzz around GlamGlow lately, a company that sells high quality mud masks with a price tag to match. In their line is Youth-Mud, formulated with volcanic rock and French sea clay. According to Sephora’s website, “This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It works with the body’s natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils”
So how did it measure up to these claims? I tried a sample that came with my Sephora order and my thoughts are from a single usage. The texture feels slightly grainy upon application, which will serve to exfoliate the skin when removing the mask. I also felt a slight tingle on my face. My skin felt soft and smooth afterward, but I did not notice any added brightness. And despite its claims not to remove natural oils, my skin felt slightly drier afterwards. As for tighter skin and pores, I noticed that my pores are slightly smaller. This is really impressive as I don’t expect anything to work after one usage and I can only imagine that this is super effective with repeated use. Let me emphasize too that my skin felt tighter, which really freaked me out. I kept checking to see if I had washed it all off and sure enough I had. It made my skin feel tighter after one use.
I am very impressed with this product. There are only two downsides and one is the price. For $19.00 you get 0.5 oz, which when used twice a week as suggested is only good for roughly 2 weeks. For $69.00 you get the 1.7 oz container. The other problem, is that after scouring the internet, I’ve found pretty mixed information about whether or not this is tested on animals.
Have you tried any GlamGlow products? What do you think. Are they worth the price tag?
