GLAMGLOW: what all the fuss is about...

There is a lot of hype around GLAMGLOW face masks and I have seen numerous adverts for them in magazines and on the interenet. At £50 a jar it must be doing something seriously good, so when I was lucky enough to get two sample sachets in my goodie bag at the Birmingham Bloggers Meet Up last week I couldn't wait to try it out and see what all the fuss is about.

I was given a 5ml sample of the Youth-Mud Tingle Exfoliate Treatment and the Super-Mud Clearing Treatment. I decided to try the Tingle Exfoliate mask as this is the one I've heard most about.

On their website GLAMGLOW describes itself as:

"A serious WOW facial treatment for when you need great skin and a glowing complexion in just 10 minutes.
This performance driven super mask is an absolute must for those who seek the highest quality ingredients and exceptional results, even if you have never used a mask before – GLAMGLOW is unique. It doesn’t just take care of one skin concern, it delivers everything you need for great skin, whatever your skin type. 
GLAMGLOW delivers both instant and cumulative results and leaves your complexion revived and glowing for 3 days after each application. With its heritage in Hollywood film studios, GLAMGLOW has flown off the shelves stateside and is now available in the UK"

On the packaging the face mask states it:
  • Leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing
  • Provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation
  • Helps to leave skin smoother, brighter and softer
  • Provides tighter skin texture and tighter pores
  • Helps to provide a more youthful appearance
  • Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils
  • Helps to protect against free radical damageSounds good to me!
The clay mask contains little flakes - they aren't really that noticeable until it comes to washing it off - has a green tea scent. It goes on a dark green and dries a pale green colour (I did take a picture of me with the mask on but didn't want to scare you all!)

As soon as I put the mask on I felt the tingling sensation within a couple of minutes and the mask dried very quickly. My face felt very tight while it was on - literally couldn't move it! When it came to washing it off the mask loosened very quickly and this is when I noticed the grains in the mask, which I could massage into my skin.

My face felt really refreshed after, although it was a little red but I think this was because I hadn't used a scrub in so long! And it felt a little dry so I put some moisturiser on and can I say my skin never felt softer as I was rubbing the moisturiser in! It glided on so smoothly and when I put my makeup on later I looked a lot more healthy and fresh.

Due to the expensive price tag I don't think I'll be splurging out on this product any time soon but it was a lovely treat to try! I definitely think it is worth the money as the results were evident instantly. I wouldn't use this face mask very often as I have delicate skin so it could be a bit too harsh for my face but once a month this will deliver excellent results!

Have you tried the GLAMGLOW face mask? What other face masks do you use for your skin?
