Glam Glow Super Mud Clearing Treatment

 Hey there!

So it's the middle of the week, a good day, I think, to give your skin a little pamper. After all it has endured the wild and hard outside environment for three long days. Thus, that was exactly what I just did.

After a warm bath, cleansing my face, and 10 minutes of face steaming, I used my Glam Glow mud mask for the second time. Yes, it's only the second time, it may seem too soon to do a review already, but the thing leaves a strong first impression.

When it comes to mud masks my standard is the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask, which is a very high standard.

Quoting Cult Beauty, Glam Glow mask is aimed "to discipline problem complexions and render your skin clear, calm and obliging. It purges pores of blackhead causing grime, whilst resurfacing skin with a specialist blend of Alpha-Hydroxy Acids. Suitable for use as a full mask or targeted on-the-spot treatment. It unifies skin tone and stimulates the synthesis of elastin and collagen." Promising, right?

Starting with the créme du fromage, or, with what really matters, how does it perform? Well, it's powerful, and i wouldn't recommend using it before an event. After the first time using it, I woke up the next morning with a couple of tiny breakouts. I can't be for sure it was because of the mask, but it's a hell of a coincidence. Your skin also feels really clean afterwards. Also when it dries, the mask goes to a lighter color, but you can see some spots (especially on the nose in my case) that looks as if it hasn't dried out completely. It looks like spots where it absorbed more "oil". Anyway, I suck at explaining stuff, so I took pictures (don't mind the silly faces -.-'').

The mask when you aplly it!

The mask after 20 minutes (can you see the little dots on the nose?)

One thing I've to say it's not as comfortable to wear as the Omorovicza, this one dries really hard, hard like you can barely move your face. But it's a small price to pay.

I'm not going into a lot of detail with the ingredients, just refer that Glam Glow has as third ingredient Magnesium Aluminum Silicate. Now, aluminum is a known neurotoxin, however, supposedly, the Magnesium Aluminum Silicate molecules are too big, so they shouldn't be able to pass through the skin. Omorovicza mask doesn't have this ingredient at all. Just thought I'd put it out there.

Regarding price, Glam Glow is £44.99 for 30mL and Omorovicza is £57 for 50mL on Cult Beauty, doing the math the Glam Glow is more expensive, it would be £74.80 for 50mL. But, Glam Glow is available in Portugal in Perfumes&Companhia, while Omorovicza isn't (I think).

And I think I'll wrap it up here (^.^) I hope I've given enough information, any doubt you can ask in the comments.

Until next time!

Stay gorgeous!
