Beauty to Know: GlamGlow

It feels like every day my beauty collection grows and grows. As I've said before, I'm starting to get overwhelmed with everything but I'm always swapping things out and giving things away to family and friends.

There is one product that I will never ever part with and I'm so happy I finally jumped on the band wagon.

GlamGlow has always be known for their face masks and skincare. They popped up in the beauty world a few years ago and since then, have blown up. They've won every beauty award you could think of and within good right. Their products are amazing.

GlamGlow started out with just face masks but they've expanded into cleansers and lip treatments as well. I've only tried two of the face masks and one of their eye treatments but I'm hoping to get into more products soon. GlamGlow is nice because they have different masks and cleansers for everyone and every skin type. If your skin is dry, they have a mask for that; if your skin is oily, there is a mask for that. You can even multi mask, which is putting two different masks on at the same time, in different areas of your face.

There is one downside of GlamGlow though; the products are also very expensive. $69 for a face mask is way to pricey for me and for the average person, but I can see why someone would spend that much, it's definitely worth it. The good news is that you don't have to pay $69 for the face masks because at Sephora, the brand has released mini sized masks and cleansers which are a fraction of the price. You may go through them faster but it's better to spend $20 at once than $70.

Last winter when my skin was freaking out, I tried the GlamGlow ThirstyMud (in the blue jar) because it's for deeply dry skin and helps hydrate. I haven't used this much, just a few times, and it's not like a typical mask. It shows up clear on your skin and really moisturizes it. I've heard people use this as an overnight mask or moisturizer. I haven't tried that yet but it's definitely a great alternative use.




The mask that is probably most famous is the one in the white jar, and the one I have a full size of. Don't worry, I didn't pay full price. If you remember reading my Beauty To Know post on BeautyKind, you know that I got the Supermud Clearing Treatment with a coupon code.

The SuperMud is supposed to clear your skin and rid it of any impurities. It brings everything to the surface and gets rid of all the dirt inside your pores. It's actually kind of fascinating.  The mask is a dark grey color but when you apply it to your face and let it dry, it turns light grey. You could actually see your pores clearing out. It's so weird and so cool.

The mask tingles a little bit and has a very minty smell and you could feel it working as the color turns. My skin feels like a baby's bottom when I wash the mask off and it just feels a lot smoother and cleaner.

I was having issues with blackheads and whiteheads a few weeks back and I used the SuperMud mask once a week to help clear my skin and it worked wonders.

Whenever I run out of this mask, I will for sure be purchasing the smaller size from Sephora.

If you're in need of a truly amazing face mask, try GlamGlow. If you're looking to splurge, try one of their gift sets or get the smaller $20 size. You surely won't regret it -- there is a reason these are so raved about!

Have you ever tried GlamGlow? What did you think?
