I had read a lot about Glam Glow Mud Mask and had seen it feature in so many Favourites videos on YouTube so I was really excited to try it out. It was one of a few products which I had on a "Must-Have!" list, despite its hefty price tag. This little jar set me back $69, but it wasn't one of those purchases where I umm-ed and ahh-ed about buying it, I simply knew that I had to have it. Boy, am I glad I bought it! Just so you know, I picked up a special edition Glam Glow with proceeds going to breast cancer so that is why it is pink but it is generally seen in black packaging. (There is also a white jar, though I believe it to be a hydrating treatement.)
This 'Youthmud Tinglexfoliate' supposedly works with the natural collagen of the body to gently resurface the skin and leave it smoother. It claims to tighten pores and remove impurities without interfering with natural oils. It is a grey-ish mud/clay and has noticeable chunks in it which you can feel on your face when applied. It hardens quickly and is then pale blue in colour. You can actually see it working on your pores which I love! I have rather visible pores on my forehead between my eyebrows and this masks seems to just target that area.
As you can see, it is a pretty thick consistency. I have seen it suggested to apply this product with a foundation brush and that is what I do and what I would recommend. It is kind of difficult to get an even layer otherwise, and also you don't want to use more of this stuff than you have to, due to the price tag!
I find that it washes off easily with warm water and doesn't pull on the skin at all like some face masks can. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and there is a NOTICEABLE difference in the size of my pores. I am super impressed with this face mask, to the point that I want to use it every single night! (I don't though!). I am definitely definitely going to buy it again when I am back in the US so if anybody is thinking of investing, it comes thoroughly recommended and I can't see anyone being disappointed. If you have an issue with enlarged pores, check this out!
If you don't want to commit to spending so much without knowing if you'll like the mask, you can buy smaller sizes to test first. I picked up two mini tubes for traveling - that is how obsessed I am!
