Cult Beauty - GLAMGLOW Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask

Glamglow logo
Once again I have added yet another mask to my skincare collection and it is one that I have waited to try out for some time but knowing just how many deep cleansing, mud based masks were already in my collection I tried really hard to resist the temptation and ignore the constant raves I read during my daily beauty blog trawls.  

The Glamglow brand is relatively new to the skincare industry but the ingredient quality, instantaneous results and A-list celebrity following have made this seemingly simple mud mask in to a cult-worthy product in record time. The other factor that contributed to the brand popularity is the unique fact that this mask was actively marketed towards both the female and male demographic and in turn recognized the rising metro-sexual trends across the world. What that means is that modern men today are finally understanding that cosmetics have a place in their bathroom drawers as well and their pampering doesn't necessarily mean that they are engaging in stereotypical "feminine" behavior. 
That being said I want to make it cleat that there are no circumstances under which I would share my Glamglow! This mask really is that good and its also the only beauty product I hide from the bathroom when I am having overnight guests...Paranoid much? 

If you have read some of my other skincare posts then you already know that I don't have a lot of patience when it comes to waiting around for results and therefore I am always a huge fan of "instant gratification" when it comes to beauty and "real life" as well. 

Glamglow definitively did not disappoint and after a single use it was very clear to me how this "facial in a jar" earned such a stellar reputation and elite fan base. It worked so well that it even surpassed the results of my beloved Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask, which was twice as expensive as the Glamglow ($69.00 for 1.7 fl.oz.)
I wouldn't necessarily say that a particular supplementary skincare product (especially a pricy one) is an essential to achieving great skin health but I am very tempted to say exactly that when it comes to this Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask. 
Glamglow Tingling a& Exfoliating Mud Mask
This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It activates moisturizing collagen synthesis, provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation, and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.

Water, Montmorillonite, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Polyethylene, Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Extract, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Hybrida (Lavender) Oil, Glycerin, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea.

The Glamglow formula is created, manufactured and perfected without any of the usual skin-offendoors - sulfates, petrochemicals, artificial dyes and fragrances. Instead they harness the power of French Sea Clay which not only absorbs impurities but also enriches the skin with essential oils and minimizes pore appearance. The presence of Volcanic Pumice Rock is said to support deep surface exfoliation, resulting in softer textured skin and temporary fine line reduction, 
The main anti-aging weapon Glamglow provides is the patent-pending TEAOXI technology, which uses the nutrition found in green tea leafs for antioxidant protection and re-balancing of your skin's natural moisture barriers. 

The texture of the Glamglow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask initially looks like that of a conventional clay mask whose primary purpose is deep cleansing and clearing of clogged pores. The similarities end there and the Glamglow shows its true nature only once its slathered on your face and the tingling begins to build. 
A word of warning - this mask is extremely concentrated and potent, so much so that some individuals will find it unbearable and impossible to complete the full 10 minutes. The Sensitive Skin Care Members need to stay far away from the Glamglow products as the actives suspended in the mud can cause a very intense sensation and possible irritation and reactivity upon use.

Personally I normally avoid masks like this because i find them too intense with the tingling-burning sesations however once i gave it a try, meaning after only one use the results in my complexion were almost dramamtic and I realized right away that there is no going back to anything less. My skin was radiant, glowy, smooth, soft, silky and calm - all adjectives that would have been impossible to use just 10 minytes before. 
Its moments like those that make me realize just how great of a formula the Glamglow Mud really is!
At this point a repurchase is definitively in order :-)
