Glam Glow: £50

Glam Glow has been on my radar for a while and I have used a few samples of it in the past to get a feel for the product. Last week I finally committed to a full size version. This was something I thought long and hard about because it retails for whopping £50. I've always stood by the fact I've thought Glam Glow is amazing. Although at first I admit I was skeptical  of the mud mask because of the super high price tag and the big hype surrounding it. None the less the tea infused mask worked like a dream for me. 

It's a harsh exfoliating tingling mud mask which leaves the skin feeling so fresh, bright and clear after use I always cant stop touching my skin. It sets absolutely rock solid on the face and it does feel slightly uncomfortable. However after 15 minutes and a nice wet flannel I removed the mask to reveal super bright, clear exfoliated skin. I was actually shocked how different my face looked after one use, the texture was so different! Once removed it leaves my skin looking smooth, soft and bump-less while also being brighter and lighter. I only apply it on my t-zone as it saves on product and targets the areas I get congested the most and the high price tag makes me not want to waste it.

While I dont think this would be suitable for more sensitive skintypes as it is very harsh on the skin I personally adore it for special occasions or times when my skin is really in trouble. It is expensive but it's a very instant satisfaction type of mask. In terms of results it's similar to very high priced facials I've had in the past, so maybe it's worth it! You get about 4-5 uses out of a pot, which isnt all that much really, but used once a month or sparingly you can get a fair few uses out of it. Not one for everyone I dont think but if youre feeling flush and want similar results to a facial then I'd reccomend giving this a whirl. You can get smaller tubes of this and a half size if you wanted to try it before committing to full siz

  1. I love GlamGlow too - I agree it's expensive but so so worth it :o) Have you tried the super mud in the white pot? That's awesome too, as more aimed towards on the spot treatment which means the pot goes alot further or it can be used as a full face mask and I think gives an even deeper clean than the original - you can see the spots of gunk being withdrawn from your pores! Gross but satisfying! I have reviewed it here: http://www.sweetiesal.com/2013/01/review-glam-glow-super-mud.html

  2. I have dry/sensitive skin and it made it really irritated! Good call on telling sensitive skinned to avoid it!

  8. I was actually just looking at this today, it's definitely a bit steep though! I'd definitely have to try a few samples before I committed to that kind of money.

  13. You can get a set of three sample sizes for just £4.99,from the glam glow website, which is surely a way better deal? I think I might order them, as it's so cheap and £4.99 is what I'd consider very budget.

  15. I reeeally like the sound of this, because it sounds like it would really sort my skin out. I just can't justify spending that kind of money :(

  18. I'm pretty sure the LUSH Mask of Magnaminty works exactly the same. I own it, I have a full review on my blog. It's the ultimate face mask - seriously, try it! xx

  20. It's amazing isn't it?! I think I actually asked whether you'd tried this via Youtube and you were uhm-ing and ah-ing over it then because of the high price tag. I was the same, it's so expensive but once you've seen the effects on your skin, it's hard to just toss it to one side. You can get it a tiny bit cheaper on Amazon and they do sell it in quite a few airport's duty free section and/or on the plane so you may be able to pick some up cheaper over you holiday. Not long now!
    I hope you're well?
    Also, the Hourglass lipstick looks lovely on you, the colour is gorgeous against your skin tone!

  24. I know that sample sizes of this product are available online and I am keen on trying those. As for this product itself it seems like I watch/read one good then one bad review and I'm not too keen on the hefty price tag if you can only get a few uses out of it. Then again if it works like I charms I guess the price tag and the instant gratification are equal if not exceedingly better than paying WAY more for a great facial because you can use this pot of goodness more than once. Sample size try it is I'll say! I've got a bit of an obsession with masks currently! Great post!

  26. Wow I'm really tempted to try this now because I love natural skincare (green tea is the best!), but the price is really steep! I think I'll stick to making my own homemade skincare... hahaha
