Review: GlamGlow SuperMud

Hey beauty people!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend. The last few days have been crazy, but awesome :)

Getting back on track today, I decided to share with you my experience with GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment.

I’ve been seeing reviews and whatnot about this product for a while and it intrigued me to the point where I just had to try it! This usually retails for $69 at Sephora for the 1.2oz size. Since it’s quite expensive (ridiculous actually), I searched for a good deal on EBay. (Can you tell I like EBay? lol) I ended up finding these two .3oz containers for $24.99. Still steep for the size, but that was the best I could do. Let’s move forward to the experience I had, shall we?

Here was my face freshly washed before application. I have a couple scars/imperfections at the moment that I’m hoping to eliminate soon. That’s another reason I was so excited to try this product.

Here’s what the product looks like on my face:

This product has a kind of dull, chalky, minty smell. Hard to explain. Not a bad smell tho, which is good. The consistency is sort of a mixture of smooth & grainy. It has small bits of flaky coal or something in it. I know, this all sounds so scientific :)
What’s interesting (and kind of gross) is that as you have it on, you can start to see the mask absorbing the oil from your pores. You’re only supposed to put a THIN layer on your face. The back if the container actually has “THIN” in all caps. Basically, my T-zone looked super speckled and nasty.. but I guess that shows that it’s literally drawing the oils and dirt from your pores. I took no picture of this haha

Here are some shots of my skin after removing the mask:

You probably have the same reaction as I did. Nothing changed. My skin felt soft, but it also felt soft before the mask. It did feel like my pores had been cleansed and tightened tho. Maybe we should try a side-by-side comparison.

I’m not using the same pictures twice, promise haha I guess I was semi-disappointed with this product. I mean, given that I don’t have crazy unruly skin, maybe the change just isn’t that drastic for me. Or maybe if I used this every once in a while, not just once, I would see more of a difference. My face does feel a tad more glowing. I will say that. Overall tho, I’m not blown away. Will definitely not purchase again for the price that this product is. There are also some other branches of this mask such as ThirstyMud & YoungMud.

Have any of you tried this product or another type from this line? Let me know! I love hearing from you!

Til next time, gorgeous!
