Good morning! At least, it’s a good morning while I’m writing this. Depending on your time zone, it might not be by the time I schedule this to publish. So good day? Anyway, I wanted to get a quick review up about a product that everyone is talking about, GlamGlow’s SuperMud Clearing Mask. As you can see from the picture, I only have a sample size so it would be wrong for me to do an extensive review. So instead, let’s talk about my first impressions!
Going On: Boy is this mask a pleasure to apply! Unlike most other mud masks I’ve tried, this has very thin consistency. It applies almost like paint. It is very similar to the other GlamGlow mask I’ve tried, Youth-Mud, without the huge chunks of ingredients
Staying On: I always like to talk a little bit about the mask feels when you’re wearing it, because some of them can be a little tingly or feel warm, and not everyone likes that. This, I’m happy to report has no such feeling. It dries pretty stiff despite its thin texture. One other thing I should mention, this has a “Pore Matrix” which is when darker black spots start to appear on your mask as it dries. Supposedly, these dots are the impurities the mask is pulling out of your pores. I wouldn’t be surprised though, if these dots just show up where you have the biggest pores and not necessarily the dirtiest.
Results: So, as you can imagine, it’s hard to talk about results after one use. Some people have said that it made their acne completely disappear. I wasn’t naive enough to believe that that would happen to me, but my acne spots were smaller and less inflamed by morning. (I started using the Clarisonic and I’m in the purging stage, so I have more acne than normal). I also noticed that while my skin was dry to begin with (damn this winter weather!) the mask didn’t dry out my skin more. And the best part about the mask, the part that convinced me to write this post after one use? Usually when I get out of the shower, the warm water brings out the blotchiness of my skin. But after using this mask, my skin was positively glowing without an ounce of redness. Lovely!
Price: $69.00 for 1.2 oz (eek!) If you are interested in trying this, I highly recommend getting a sample from Sephora first.
Cruelty-Free: I wasn’t sure about this before, but after more research, it looks like this brand is not cruelty-free. Sad face.
So what do you think? Have you tried this product? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
