Worth the Splurge? | My GlamGlow Mask Collection Review / Comparison

Hello, lovelies!

You have probably heard the rave about GlamGlow’s masks from beauty enthusiasts everywhere.  I have, too, so I obviously had to try them out!  Today, I’ll be telling you what I think of those I have in my collection!  Are they worth the splurge?  Let’s see, shall we?

Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment

IMG_5011 (1) IMG_5013 IMG_5016 IMG_5022

Price: $69

What it is formulated to do:
THIRSTYMUD™ uses the newest, most advanced, and extreme hydration active technologies. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Dewdration™ boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result while HydraPack™ leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel. GreenEnergy™ smooths and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion

Suggested Usage:
-Use two to three times per week or when needed.
-Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin.
-Can be used on the face, neck, and chest.
-Daytime use: Leave on for 10 to 20 minutes, allowing product to absorb into the skin. Wipe off with tissue and massage remaining product into skin or rinse with water.
-Nighttime use: Leave on to infuse the skin with moisture and wake up with extremely hydrated skin.
-In-flight use: Apply at beginning of the flight and leave on for flight duration.

My opinion: I love the sleek packaging -It’s so beautiful!  As for the product itself, I think it is great for people with dry skin that is not too sensitive.  When my skin is  on the normal to oily side, this mask doesn’t really do much for me besides cause breakouts.  Keep in mind that my skin is extremely sensitive, so it can break out very easily.  It has a delicious coconut scent and leaves the skin feeling refreshed.  It feels almost tingly to my skin upon application and I love how amazing my skin feels when I rinse it off!  When my skin is dry, this is a great mask to use!

Recommendation: I would recommend this to anyone with drier skin that is not sensitive.

Worth the Splurge?: Depending on your skin type, it can be… but it is pretty pricey and I think there are probably better options out there than something so expensive! Again, my skin is so sensitive that I don’t get very positive results from masks often, so keep in mind that while this may not be worth the money to me, it might be a miracle worker for you!


Tinglexfoliate Mud Mask

IMG_5856IMG_5862 (1) IMG_5863 IMG_5867

Price: $69

It claims:
– Noticeable three-day glow from skin collagen synthesis.
-Helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
– Leaves skin brighter, smoother and softer.
– Offers multilevel resurfacing exfoliation and evens out skin tone.
– Helps tighten skin and minimizes pores.
– Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.
– Helps protect against free-radical damage.

How to use:
– Apply a thin layer to clean face.
– Stir before use to liquefy.
– Expect a tingle-tactic tightening effect in 10 minutes or less.
– Remove mask with water in circular motions to exfoliate.
– Use twice a week or as often as desired.

My opinion: It dries out quickly, so I recommend buying the smaller, cheaper size that you will be able to use up before it hardens.  It has a tingling sensation on the face that slowly dies down.  It smells slightly like green tea to me and leaves the skin feeling a little tight.  This mask will bring all the imperfections to the surface.  Since my skin is so sensitive, I don’t love this one as it can be a bit harsh.  It’s great if you need something to draw out any pimples and clear up your skin.

Recommendation:  I would recommend this to anyone with normal to oily skin that isn’t too sensitive.

Worth the splurge?: In my opinion, and for my skin type, definitely not.  However, as I said, if your skin is not sensitive, then give the smaller size of this baby a go!


Supermud Clearing Treatment

Price: $69

What it is formulated to do:
“This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin. It works to magnetically draw out dirt and pores with Activated-X Charcoal, leaving skin smooth and healthy-looking.”

Suggested Usage:
-Apply a thin layer to clean skin.
-Leave on for five, 10, 15, or 20 minutes.
-Pore-Matrix™ will reveal dots of vacuum extractions.
-Remove with water.
-Use as often as needed.
-Use as a full mask or spot treatment.

My Opinion: This mask does everything that it claims!  Although the smell is a bit wonky, it clears out my pores and tightens them up.  It leaves my skin feeling super soft!  It really reduces the size of my breakouts and clears my skin!  Overall, I think it’s a great mask!  Again, it will dry out on you if you don’t use it quickly enough, so I really recommend getting the smaller size.  It’s also less cash that you have to spend, so even better!  I think this is great as a mask or spot treatment.

Recommendation: I would recommend it to all skin types that need help with reducing their acne and tightening pores.  If your skin is extremely sensitive, this may be a no-go for you, but other than that, it’s a pretty great product!

Worth the splurge?: This mask is pretty amazing, however the price is very high!  I think the smaller and cheaper ($19) version of this mask is the way to go since you won’t have to spend as much and it won’t all dry up before you can use the product!


Brightmud Eye Treatment

IMG_5003 IMG_5057  IMG_5052 IMG_5056

IMG_5061 (1) IMG_5073

What it is formulated to do:
Non-Dry Tapwipe™ Bioactive Mud consists of powerful actives that help minimize puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines while brightening and hydrating the eyes. Natural high bioactivity materials and bentonites absorb toxins delivering high nutrients and minerals essential for ultrabright, amazing eyes. Simply tap-on to deliver the range of advanced active ingredients into the skin then wipe-off, leaving a micro layer of actives for extended results.

Suggested Usage:
-Use one dual ChromeCell™ per use, two to three times per week or when needed.
-Close eye and tap on an even layer using the entire product under eye or orbital eye.
-Leave on for three minutes.
-Close eye and slowly wipe off with a soft, dry tissue, using a clean part for each wipe.

My Opinion:  This mask is absolutely amazing!  I get pretty dark circles under my eyes since I definitely don’t get enough sleep.  It brightens up my under eyes and decreases the puffiness SO. MUCH.  It’s insane how well it works!  I didn’t think this product would live up to its claims, but it has proved me wrong and I’m in love with it!  It feels really refreshing when you apply it and doesn’t have much of a smell.  It almost tingles on the skin and the sensitive edges next to my eyes do begin to sting a little after this has been sitting there for a few minutes, but it’s nothing extreme.  After rinsing, I’m always so impressed with the results!  It makes my face look like I got a full 8 hours of sleep!  The best part is that you can actually get two uses out of one pod since there is so much product there, which will give you 24 uses instead of only 12!

Recommendation:  If you have dark undereyes and never get enough sleep, I think that this product will work great for you!   However, if your eyes are super sensitive, they may be irritated by this product.

Worth the splurge?: The price is pretty insane for an undereye mask, I know… However, I found mine at Marshalls for $40 cheaper than the usual price!  I was hooked by the deal and decided to try it out!  I’m so glad that I did!  I don’t think I would repurchase this since it was so expensive, but if I ever find it at such a cheap price again, I will definitely be picking it up!  If you’re interested in buying this, make sure to check the Marshall’s beauty aisle as they have GlamGlow products pretty often!


Overall, I’d say that GlamGlow does have some amazing masks, BUT they are extremely expensive and, in most cases, I would recommend buying the smaller size to save money and be able to use up the product before it dries out.  Also, as I said before, be sure to check Marshall’s beauty aisle to see if they have any Glamglow masks at cheaper prices!  Their packaging is to die for and most of these masks smell absolutely amazing!  I recommend getting samples at Sephora and testing them out of your skin before committing to a whole bottle! I recently tried out PowerMud, which worked wonders on my acne, so I really recommend checking that one out!  It smells like heaven!

Thanks so much for reading!  Do you have any GlamGlow masks?  If so, which do you recommend and which aren’t so great?

Hanna

    Thank you for sharing! I have a sample the Thirstymud Glamglow, but haven’t tried it yet. I have super-dry skin, so it might work for me. I’m definitely going to try it after reading your review. I also really want to try the eye treatment; I also get dark circles so it would be perfect for me!
