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.
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?
