GlamGlow Supermud & Youthmud: my opinion
I’ve always been attracted by GlamGlow infamous masks, so I was really happy when it became available in Italy too. I was a bit worried that there is a huge hype about them and I didn’t know if they were really effective. Nevertheless I decided to give them a try.
I bought a worthwhile gift set with a fullsized GlamGlow Supermud mask and a travel size Youthmud one. The first one is supposed to be a purifying, clearing mask to deeply cleanse your skin and to remove those nasty blackheads. It’s supposed to be good even on men’s skin. It’s quite different from any other clay mask I’ve tried before but way more effective. Maybe too much effective. In fact, it was a bit too much for my quite sensitive skin. I found it overly aggressive and drying: I also felt an unpleasent burning sensation. Furthermore, it was quite difficult to rinse off.
I did not have a happy experience with GlamGlow Youthmud as well. It is supposed to be an exfoliating mask with a tingling effect. Same as before, it was effective but too much aggressive on my skin. I’m used to AHA, BHA and other chemical exfoliating treatments but this stuff tingled and burned as hell.
This is a duo treatment: you’re supposed to purify your skin with Supermud mask and then exfoliate it with Youthmud. Honestly, I didn’t want to ruin my skin so I only used these two masks separately. Nevertheless, my skin was so irritated that I had to immediately put a soothing, hydrating pack after the GlamGlow treatment.
If you have sensitive skin, avoid these masks at all cost. Also, if you have oily skin these may cause a rebound effect. Instead, give a try to GlamGlow new Gravitymud: it is a rubber mask that gives you radiant, smooth skin without being too aggressive. Plus, it smells amazing 😉
