Glamglow Gravitymud, Thirstymud, Flashmud, Youthmud, & Supermud Review

How’s it going Guys! I’ve been obsessing about masks lately and decided to try some Glamglow face masks since they seem to have a couple of really interesting products, and also, I was looking for something that I could use for specific skincare situations.

Masks are really fun to try and they’re such good skin preps to incorporate in your regular beauty routine. They come in different formulations and purposes, depending on your skin condition and what it needs. These Glamglow minis are so nice to try because then you could rule out which ones you’ll like and might need.


Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment


I’ve had a really good experience with their Glamglow Supermud Mask (further reviewed HERE), and I’ve been using it twice a week since then. It’s probably one of the best treatment face masks I’ve ever used, and it just clears my blackheads and whiteheads like a breeze. My pores have never been better and breakouts have been prevented. It has a strong lavender scent which you’ll get used to pretty easily and it dries fast. This is a great mask for cleaning the skin thoroughly and preventing too much oil buildup.

Since my purchase of the Glamglow Supermud, I’ve always wanted to experience some of their masks, especially during the days when I feel like I may need some hydration on my skin, or when I feel like I need a thorough exfoliation or a facial scrub after an oily sweaty day. So here are the minis that I’ve tried.


Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment

Glamglow Flashmud Brightening Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – This mask is meant to deliver a radiant and luminous skin. It also evens the skin’s texture and minimizes or prevents dark spots. In other words, its main purpose is what its name says. A brightening mask. It smells like a fusion of great tea, white clay, something acidic and something floral. It has little bits of what looks like finely- grounded leaves and the mask overall feels very gritty. It’s definitely a great exfoliating mask or a face scrub. While I haven’t noticed any brightening effects, I do like this mask. I like that it makes my face feel soft and it controls the oil. This mask has a flesh color which transforms into a semi-transparent finish after a few minutes. Glamglow suggests to leave it on for at least 20 minutes, then you can rinse it off with water.


Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – Of all the Glamglow face masks, this is probably the most fun to try. It smells like a yummy Piña Colada and it starts off as a metallic white cream which transforms into a silver peel-off mask. The larger size comes with a brush for an easy application because applying this mask with your fingers alone can be a slight challenge. I didn’t notice a firming sensation with this mask, but I love the fun of using it. It will transform you into either a magical unicorn or like Tin Man from Wizard of Oz.


Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – This mask is meant to exfoliate, brighten, smooth, and soften the skin with antioxidant properties. It also gives a tingling sensation when applied. Somehow, I feel like this is quite similar to Glamglow Flashmud, but probably even more exfoliating and it does tingle on the face but you really have to pay attention in order to notice it, at least I didn’t feel it much on my face. This smells like herbs and something soapy, but it’s not bad. It doesn’t dry like most clay masks, but it exfoliates really well and it kinda feels firming too. The best thing about this is how my face felt so smooth and so soft after rinsing, almost like baby skin,


Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment (0.5 oz: $22, 1.7 oz: $69) – A very moisturizing mask that smells so delish like vanilla chocolate and coconut, you could almost eat it. This doesn’t dry at all, it feels more like a very hydrating facial moisturizer for the days that the skin may experience dryness or some dry patches. This is really creamy but not sticky. I like that it feels very soothing and it makes my skin soft, especially when exposed to strong ACs or this could be great for this coming winter air.


Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment


Of all the Glamglow masks reviewed here, I’d say that I like them all a lot because I can definitely see myself using each one of them. They all have a certain purpose which my skin will definitely need, but if I have to rank them, I think my first will always be the Glamglow Supermud, followed by the Gravitymud/Firming (violet container), then the Flashmud/Brightening (orange), Thirstymud/Hydrating (blue), and finally the Youthmud/Tinglexfoliate (black).

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme De-Tox Hydrator

What’s Up Dears! I recently discovered an exciting face mask that’s so meant for this summer, and it’s all about them good ol’ cucumbers. As we all know, cucumbers not only depuff the skin, but they also soothe irritated skin. They even hydrate and has anti-aging properties. Well, lucky us, there’s a new cucumber face mask in town, it’s the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator. Such a long name right? Let’s just call it, the PTR Cucumber Gel Mask for short.


Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme De-Tox Hydrator review


This Cucumber Gel Mask is an exciting must have specially in this warming temps where most of us would want to frolic on the beach or to better yet spend some time on waxing centers before showing off that hard-earned beach bod. That’s because this PTR Cucumber Gel Mask helps soothes sunburned skin, reduces redness, and soothes irritations. You can even use it right after major sun exposure even if there’s no sunburn noticed. It has a cooling feel to it which calms and soothes the skin and pores that’s been waxed or peeled.

Apart from the soothing effect, this Cucumber Mask reduces puffy undereyes and dark circles. No more raccoon eyes. Ha! This definitely helps to not make you look stressed out for sure, thus, making you look well-rested for the day. It’s very gentle and refreshing with ingredients like: cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, lemon and aloe to name a few. I love how it feels on the face, and the gel formulation feels already cool even without refrigerating the mask. The instruction says to put the product inside the refrigerator for a very cool treatment, which is what I’ve been doing lately and it feels really really good.

This mask is ideal for any skin types even for sensitive skin. Just apply a coat on a clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. I like to leave it on for 5 minutes more actually, and then rinse with cool water. If you have very dry skin, you can leave the product overnight or use it more often during the week. It’s a mild and soothing product, so you can even use it daily.

If I have to rate this PTR Cucumber Gel Mask on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being a meh and 5 being awesome, I’d say that this mask deserves a 4.5. It may not be a treatment mask that solves it all, but I like its wellness effect on the skin. It restores hydration and prevents my skin from having dry patches. Also, this soothes the redness of my cheeks and depuffs my puffy lids. I love the fresh cucumber-chamomile scent and the relaxing and enjoyable feeling that this mask brings.

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment Mask Review

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment Mask


Whaddup Everyone! I have been living on Glamglow Supermud Mask samples for a few weeks and I finally bought the largest size in 1.07 oz for $69. It’s a pricey mud mask yeah, but it works wonders to my skin. With 4 star reviews in Sephora, this mask is definitely worth a try and to keep in your vanity.

I first got a sample of this mask from my monthly Sephora Play! box subscription and immediately tried it on my face. It has a strong eucalyptus and charcoal scent that may be too much at first, but you’ll get used to it after a few seconds. It doesn’t really smell like mud or most mud masks though, I’d say, the Glamglow Supermud smells much fresher and much better than that. I actually kinda like the smell, it’s invigorating and relaxing, a bit like those pain-relief gels or creams. But what I like most about this mask is that it helps to suck in excess oil from my skin and it definitely goes deep down into my pores to help control my whiteheads and blackheads. I’ve never seen a mask like this before.

The mask coats into the skin and dries within seconds. Only a thin layer of it will do the job, and as it dries, you’d feel your face tightening like you’re turning into a stone hehehe, like most masks. And yet this particular mask feels tighter on the face than the others. It makes you feel like you have botox all over your face and you can’t move it nor speak. Oh I love the feeling, it’s like you’re trying to talk but your entire face feels paralyzed, and then you struggle to pronounce the words, hmm, there’s just something funny and challenging about that, I don’t know why, but perhaps I’m just crazy. When the mask dries, you could see that your face transformed into a world map full of small and large pores, it looks scary and slightly gross. For those with Trypophobia, goodluck staring at your face while on Glamglow Supermud, LOL!

You can let the mask stay on for 5-20 minutes and then rinse it off. Actually, when I first tried this mask, I was kinda disappointed because my skin broke out the next day. So I stopped it for a while and tried it again later on. Since trying it for the second time, my skin never had any issue with it. You might feel a tingling sensation the longer the mask sits on your face. The magic happens right after washing off the mud, and in my personal experience, I noticed that my face looked thoroughly cleaned even down to the smallest of pores. My blackheads and whiteheads disappeared like they were just a nightmare, and my pores looked tighter. In fact, my entire face looks brighter, as if a shadow was casted out and I became one shade lighter or something. The oil and shine were obliterated and it even took out my acne scars and some other blemishes. All of it happened after every use of the Glamglow mask. I love how my skin felt soft and renewed afterwards, even after applying my serum and moisturizer.


GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment Mask


I think Glamglow Supermud truly works specially if you have oily or combo skin with some problems like blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads, etc. however, the price of $69 for 1.07 oz jar is a bit too much, but it works, and if you’re on a budget, this mask also comes in 0.5 oz for $22. One thing I noticed is that some of the masks tend to dry up with time even while in the jar, so might as well seal the cap tightly after every use. With AHA and BHA acid plus Activated-X Charcoal, there is a lot to love in this pricey but very effective mask. 

P.S. Can’t wait to try other Glamglow masks soon. I have my eyes set on the Flashmud and Powermud.


What’s your favorite mask of all time?
