GlamGlow is a brand, founded in 2010, that has been taking over the beauty world with its famous mud products, fab packaging, and hefty price tag. But is it worth the hype? I've spent the past year reviewing each GlamGlow product.
This first set of GlamGlow products are mud masks that are $69 for 1.7 oz. GlamGlow is known for its mud that helps with clearing skin, which is actually clay. Pictured above is an example of its famous Supermud, reviewed below.
1: GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT
- A tingly clay mask that exfoliates
- Skin did tighter and softer
- If you have sensitive skin, skip this! The tingling is almost a burning sensation.
2: GLAMGLOW POWERMUD™ Dualcleanse Treatment
- This changes from mud to oil and is used to cleanse skin from dirty, makeup, etc.
- This tingled as well and was too dry for my already dry skin.
- Ask for a sample and try before buying.
3: GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD™ CLEARING TREATMENT
- The product that made the brand successful and is still the best-selling product.
- Apply this mask for 10 minutes (the others are 10 min as well) to remove impurities and lead the way to clearer skin.
- Oily skin will LOVE this. Everyone I've recommended this to has loved this.
- I feel my DIY clay masks I've been doing for years are just as effective and cheaper, so this one I would skip (for me) but so many love this, that I think you are safe in buying it.
4: GLAMGLOW Flashmud™ Brightening Treatment
- Promises glowing, brightened skin and is a newer product to the line
- This is my FAVE of all 10 products. Normally anything that "brightens"the skin has citric acid or vitamin C in it, and my skin doesn't react well to those. But this worked.
- Will repurchase
5: GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment
- Hydration mask for instant hydration to dry skin
- This one did nothing for me, but everyone else who has tried this LOVES it.
6: GLAMGLOW BRIGHTMUD™ Eye Treatment
- A 3 min mud mask you place under eyes that minimizes puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines while brightening and hydrating the eyes
- This didn't do anything for me. I even tried using it longer than 3 minutes and nothing.
- Skip it.
7-10: These are mud-to-foam cleansers that dissolve oil, makeup and impurities that are $39 each.
- I really liked it, but it is so pricey for a cleanser
- Exfoliated my skin but again, that price and it is not advertised as paraben-free like other products
- This cleanser helps hydrate skin but for me, it left me drier than before
- This reminded me exactly of the mask version, but without the tingling. It never really got that foamy for me.
- Most of these are heavily-scented to the point of headaches for me, so keep that in mind if you or your skin are sensitive to fragrance
- Many of the masks contain bits of leaves, like tea leaves, peppermint leaves, or eucalyptus leaves. These little bits are annoying and I feel could be smaller.
- The directions aren't printed on a lot of the products, and can be hard to find how to use.
- The price! $69 for a clay mask? $39 for cleanser? While many of the products worked, I haven't repurchased most of them. I would suggest asking for samples at your local Sephora.
Have you tried GlamGlow products?
- It's been a tough week around here. My good friend's mom passed away last night after a brief illness. She was a great lady and is missed and loved so much.
- I'm ready for fall. Yes, I said it. Bring on the cooler weather, sweaters and leaf piles. And pumpkin everything.
