Oh GlamGlow – how I love you so!
I read somewhere that Nina Dobrev swore by this mask. So naturally I had to go out and make the purchase. The Vampire Diaries actress is absolutely stunning and if it’s good enough for her, it’s got to be good enough for me.
I should probably warn you – this product is not cheap! A full-size pot (1.7 oz) costs $76. But a little goes a long way. I wasn’t sure if I would like it initially, so I opted for the smaller (0.5 oz) size at $21. I’ve now used this four times and have at least one use left. If you break it down, each application costs roughly $4.20 – relatively similar to some of the one-time use face masks you can find at the drug store.
There are some awesome all-natural ingredients in this mask including french sea clay, volcanic pumice rock, chamomile, lavender and green tea leaves. It smells pretty divine too!
I swipe a thin layer of this green concoction on my face and let it dry for 10 minutes. By that time, it has tingled and tightened so much that my cheek bones refuse to budge and my lips are glued shut. I splash a bit of warm water on my face and create gentle circular motions using my fingers. The micro volcanic rock exfoliate my skin while it washes off.
I learned a little while ago that if you have sensitive skin (like I do), exfoliating too much causes irritation and can actually lead to breakouts. The GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment mask is a little abrasive, so I usually only use it once a week.
There’s a noticeable difference with the appearance of my skin. Immediately after, my face feels tighter, but not dry. There’s no need to smear on a ton of moisturizer. It’s also brighter and super soft!
I’ve always tried not to touch my face because the dirt and oils on my fingers may cause a blemish to pop up. But I can’t help myself! My hand is a magnet to my face. I love how amazing my skin feels.
While I may not have wrinkles…(yet)…I consider myself proactive. Since GlamGlow claims this product is anti-aging and provides anti-wrinkle results, it’s perfect for someone my age. But the french sea clay used in this mask can also help to eliminate fine lines. Therefore making it the perfect option for women…and men…of all ages.
Overall, I think this product is worth the splurge.
