Glamglow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment Mask Review

Monday, 7 January 2013

I've got a super exciting post today!! I received a sample of Glamglow Super-Mud Face Mask in my goodie bag from #bbloggersxmas event. I've heard alot about Glamglow and seen lots of  rave reviews of the original Glamglow YouthMud mask so when I saw a sample of Glamglow's more premium sister, its Super-Mud Clearing Treatment in my goodie bag I was looking forward to trying it.

Here is what Glamglow claim:

The world’s most scientifically advanced GLAMGLOW SUPER-MUD is a magical mud clearing treatment that will target, prevent and heal for seemingly poreless skin. Ideal for use as a full face mask or targeted spot treatment.

This amazing detoxifying mud mask is fantastic for fighting all common skin concerns - it helps with the brightening and evening of the complexion; creates a more youthful and smooth skin tone; improves elastin and collagen; de-clogs and minimises pore size and fights unwanted breakouts, by reducing redness and super-speeding the healing process.

According to the active ingredients in Glamglow Super-Mud Clearning Treatment are:

  • ACNECIDIC-6 4.4% - the first 6-Acid AHA & BHA PH balanced blend for mind-blowing faster results.
  • PORE-MATRIX Technology - Activated-X Charcoal is an Xtreme absorption carbon, attracting toxic substances from all skin types, within the deepest and toughest areas.
  • K17-Clay - will better extract and encapsulate excess sebum oils, bacteria and toxins for deep pore vacuum. Reveals a PORE-MATRIX of extraction dots and other areas ready to be washed away for seemingly poreless skin.
  • BIO-LIFE-CELL-SCIENCE - uses the natural occurring skincare benefits of green life for advanced results.
  • TEAOXI Technology - ground-breaking continuous time release technology with real Eucalyptus Leaf delivers daily fresh, natural eucalyptol and natural-linalool oil direct to the mud for magical glowing skin.

Glamglow Super-Mud can be used as mask for 5/10/15/20mins depending on how intensive you want it or as a spot treatment using a dab of product.

My Experience:

This is a clay mask with a relatively thin texture for a mask whilst still making it easy to apply to your skin. There are some small pieces in it which to be honest I'm not sure what they are exactly. It dries mostly within about 5 mins with thicker patches taking a little longer. Ideally you should apply an even layer.

When you first apply the mask it starts to tingle a little. Having read lots of reviews for the Glamglow's YouthMud I was expecting the tingling sensation and to be honest the Super-Mud tingled alot less than I was expecting. Personally I feel the sensation is mild-medium, its nothing that I felt concerned about and I actually liked it. I feel like it was actually doing something!
The sensation lingers until the mask is dry so about 5 minutes. As the mask dries it turns to a light grey colour and sets hard.
I left the mask on for the full 20 mins then rinsed it off with warm water.When water hits the dried mask it turns it back into a liquid making it really easy to wash off.

See those little dots on my nose...thats the PORE-MATRIX technology doing its thing
The result:

As soon as I washed it off my skin felt SO soft and not drying at all especially when I remember that the Pore-Matrix ingredients are designed to draw out problematic sebum oils and bacteria. Then when I looked into mirror I was just amazed! Seriously! My skin looked so clear, more evened out, brighter and truly radiant! I honestly couldn't believe me eyes! On closer inspection I noticed that my pores looked visibly more refined and noticeably smaller and my skin just looked so smooth..I think that Acnecidic-6 really did a good job at resurfacing the skin's texture.

I can't tell you exactly how this product works but it really does work! The results are visible after the one use. I absolutely recommend it!

Totally forgot to take a before pic but here is the makeup at all just my bare face! eek!
Glamglow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment comes in a tub with 36g of product. This is enough for 17 applications as a face mask or around 1000 spot treatments. My sample sachet came with 2.1g of product, the perfect amount for one application.
The only down point is the price tag of £45 rrp for 36g but honestly I feel like because this is a product which really does NOTICEABLY deliver results, the price tag is justified. Also when I did the maths based on £45 rrp, one application worked out at £2.64 per treatment which I think is very reasonable.

Rating: 5/5

This is genuinely the best face mask I have ever used! The initial cost is expensive but its really worth it and when you break it down per application it works out to be reasonably priced. I noticed that its currently on sale at for £39.99 here! Woop woop!!

Have you tried Glamglow Youthful or Super-Mud? What did you think?
