I was really excited when i received a product from Glamglow to review on it. I first heard about it through Alethea when she was telling me that she wanted to buy it and then few months back after one of our events in Pavillion and she purchased the Youthmud Thinglexfoliate. She did gave about how great and amazing it was but then when i asked the priced, i stepped back. So this time, when I was given a free sample of the Supermud Clearing Treatment I was really excited to try it out!
Glamglow came out suddenly with such a bang in Asia with all these awards and testimonials in the states. This is not the first mud mask that I have tried but it definitely became one of the top and best mask to me.In case some of you don’t know, GlamGlow is the Award-Winning, Hydrating, Anti-Aging and Exfoliant Treatments for super sexy super radiant skin in Hollywood, California. In short, it was only used by Hollywood Movie Actors and Actresses.
GLAMGLOW was originally designed for exclusive professional backstage use in Hollywood. In 2011, GLAMGLOW became available to consumers worldwide and is now one of the hottest brands in skincare. Known for fast-acting and innovative mud treatments, their patent-pending formulas combine real pieces of leaf with high-end technology to deliver instant, visible results.
It has also won many awards and accolades.
This is NOT the actual size. It’s just a 3ml travel size that was given to me. The actual size comes in a 34g tub that looks like this .
Packaging damn cute also.
So what does it do and why the hype about it?
It is SCIENTIFICALLY, DERMATOLOGICALLY and CLINICALLY developed to fight all common skin concerns. (well, don’t all products do that right? ) It has ACNECIDIC-6™4.4% the first 6-Acid AHA & BHA Blend for mind-blowing faster results. NEW Pore-Matrix™ with Activated-X Charcoal & New K17-Clay™ for deep pore vacuum extraction, encapsulation & seemingly poreless skin.

NEW TEAOXI® Patent Pending release technology with real Eucalyptus Leaf in our formula for Magical Glowing Skin. SUPERMUD™ for the New Crazy Gorgeous You. Welcome to GLAM-LAND™ & the World of GLAMGLOW®. (information taken from here so i didn’t make up those stuff just to make it sound fancy)
But some might wonder why the fuss and don’t all products claim the same and all. So to sum it up, it says it
- De-clog pores and minimise the visibility of pores
- Brightens skin
- Balance our skin PH
- Restore damage and improve skin texture
- Gives clearer skin and helps out with scars
- Improve fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin Conditioning
- Calm, smooths, heals and regenerate (basically it’s this)
What’s the plus point for this product is that it actually has real herbs and leaves! Like you can actually feel them! At first i thought this mask was being clumpy, but then later on i realised that it was actually the herbs and the leaves!! Now, no more extracted essence or herbs but the actual thing right! Extra benefits with deep penetration into our skin.
The texture of it is not too diluted and not too dry. It’s a wet concentrated texture that distributes evenly on your skin. What i liked about it was that it didn’t drip everywhere or it wasn’t messy. AND, the tester tube wasn’t hard to squeeze out, but the actual product is a tube so i guess it wouldn’t be a problem, but you gotta buy that to try that. :)
So i have applied it evenly on my face generously.
Then take some photos while waiting
And wait more
Photo with flash. As you can see those are not clumps, but the herbs and the leaves. The mask smells really pleasant and nice, a little peppermint kinda feeling. Some people might find it too strong, but it’s not BAD like herbal or organic products (i hate those smell)
After you applied it you can let it dry and do rest or watch a drama. (I was planning to but then fats isn’t home so didn’t wanna watch an episode without him)
Still waiting after 5minutes where my forehead is almost dried. And my whole face feels tightened already. After 10 minutes it still hasn’t dried up fully yet, especially the cheeks and the side of the nose. Unless you would fan yourself or sit in front of a windy place. But i took my own sweet time. :)
In the end I gave up Checking in the mirror and just started watching a show on YouTube. 30 minutes later, my face was so stiff I couldn’t frown.
Now it is fully dried. See the dots and transparent areas. Those are all the oil that the mask has absorbed from my skin and cleansed deep down inside those yucky pores. And I wasn’t my face right before I did this mask!! Shows so much right?? Of course you can’t use this everyday because your face will be dried out. Unless you do a hydrating face mask everyday.
See those sucked up oil. Sometimes I feel very satisfied but at the mean time it’s also an awakening call to how dirty my face is. Cannot be lazy!!! *fist up*
Close up of my nose which is the worst area.
Washing it off isn’t a hassle and it’s very easy, but beware not to scrub it off too hard as the leaves are stuck on your face. I rinse with warm water then finish it off with cold water.
What do i think about it?
I think this would really be a holygrail product. If i just had RM250 to spend on one tub and more for repurchasing that would be great. I guess I would buy it sooner or later cause it’s that good, but just not today, or tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow. I’m really glad that I was given this tester to try and review on it because now i know rm25o for a tub that you don’t use everyday, it is definitely worth it. It doesn’t smell bad it being herbal and all. It also doesn’t go to waste because of the consistency and you do not need a lot, a thin even layer would do the job well.
Would I recommend it?
Definitely, YES! You may go to sephora to purchase it. :)
