I was very skeptical about all the hype surrounding this mud mask, but I can definitely say that it’s one of the best results I’ve seen from a mask treatment. As you can see in my photo, you can actually see the spots where it’s pulling the impurities from your pores. I didn’t leave the mask on for very long (maybe about 8 minutes) & I’d say there was a noticeable difference in the size/clarity of my pores. I have terrible blackheads on my nose & chin area and of course they weren’t completely cleared, but I’m rather impressed. The best result, for me, was my skin appears so much brighter & more fresh looking than before. Overall, I’d say I’m happy with my first use experience. If you don’t have really bad blackheads though, it’s probably not going to be worth your money. I definitely recommend going to your local Sephora and getting a sample. You might be as surprised as I was!
Purchasing this mask was a huge mistake. Having read the reviews online, I figured it couldn't do any harm, but I was so wrong. After using this mask I have painful, clustered acne on my forehead and nose. I have never had acne in my life, except for the occasional pimple or two. This is the worst I have ever seen my skin. I also let my boyfriend use the mask who has gorgeous skin. He broke out as well. I am confused as to how this mask worked so well for others but not me.
I have tremendous amounts of black heads for like ever. Many expect for this to magically do everything for them like make their black heads disappear. Yes this helps! The mask brings the black heads to the surface and opens up your pores drawing all the impurities to the surface hence why some people say they see it but can't really get it. This is when you go in and exfoliate or extract using pore strips or Tweezerman's no slip skin care tool. Also notice that this is a mask treatment not a cleanser. If you use it too much it isn't going to work anymore. Masks are meant to be used a few times a week. Gotta work for what you want right? ;)
Now this mud means business. It will pull everything to the surface... And I mean everything. If you're not used to using a mask and this is the first one you put on.. Be prepared for a lot of little spots to appear. Don't worry though, once the spots disappear they're gone for good if you keep up with a good face routine!
Overall I love it.
Okay here's my review of it. •has a smell, not an unpleasant smell but nothing you would really love. Kinda has a peppermint grassy smell. •from what it looks like when it drys, it drys a light gray but where ever a lot of impurities in your skin that it has drawn out it stays a dark gray. •easy to remove with warm water and a wash cloth. •didn't give me any burning or tingling feelings. Left my skin feeling soft, and I definitely see less black heads and my skin is clearer. Would buy again.
A good mask
Although the GlamGlow Supermud mask did not help with my blackheads long term, I did like this product because immediately after using it my skin was always amazingly soft and clean feeling. It felt like getting a facial. I felt like it did do a good job of opening up pores and cleaning deep but I just have too many blackheads and they did get slightly better with this product but not 100% gone. I applied this mask to damp clean skin, focusing on my T-zone. I let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes until it got dry. you will start to see the mask zoning in on your pores. After that I would rinse it off and pat dry and moisturize.
This mask is a staple product in my skincare routine. I use it about once or twice a week to pamper my skin and give it a deep cleaning. I produce a tiny bit of oil around the edges of my nose, so I apply the product on that area to extract excess sebum and to unclog my pores. I also use it as a spot treatment for those random breakouts/blemishes and it works really well!
This is the best pore-sucking, oil absorbing mask I have used. The name "glam glow" and cheesy packaging put me off it for the longest time, but when I celeberites actually using it on instagram, I wanted to try it myself. Clears up congested skin and sucks oil out. You can actually see the spots where the "crap" is being sucked out.
