First Impressions | Glam Glow YouthMud Mask

11/28/13




The Glam Glow YouthMud Mask is one of the most hyped-up skincare products of 2013, in my opinion. I've heard so much of this in the past months from fellows bloggers, youtubers as well as retail stores. It's used by celebrities on the red carpet before huge huge events, like the red carpet (duh), and so that's how it came into fame.
I was able to grab a small tub from Sephora from 21$, which is still fairly pricey for such a small amount. 
The smell is actually one of my favourite things about the product, it's akin to a strong deep floral fragrance. It's an olive green colour with chunks of goodness, although that makes it sounds kinda gross doesn't it? In my experience, there are two types of masks: smooth masks and then ones with chunks of goodness in them, like the Glam Glow YouthMud Mask.

I've only tried this mask once, but the one time I did try it, my skin was thoroughly cleansed afterwards. I can say that it cleared all my blackheads and seemed to unclog most of my clogged/enlarged pores. I still can't believe how fast it melted my blackheads... crazy right? My nose pores were clear as day afterwards. I'm not sure if it "exfoliates" but it does slough away all the dead skin, so in it own unconventional way, I guess it does in fact exfoliate. It just exfoliates enzymatically (aka without have to scrub a dub). It did make my skin look pretty good afterwards though - glowy and super soft. As promised. Amazing. However, I do not think this would suit sensitive or very dry skin types. I had applied it to my temples and around my eyes, and the skin around those areas was sore for a couple days after. So there you have it - not so much for you sensitive types out there.

The packaging is typical of a mask pot, the only thing that irks me is that the opening is smaller than the pot, and so I feel that a bunch of product will inevitably get stuck in the upper sides of the pot.
You feel me?
Let's hope so.

Overall, to end this short and sweet review, this is an expensive and small amount of product that packs a big punch. I may not use it all over my face again (avoiding the temples and around the eyes for sure), but I will definitely use the rest on my problematic areas. I would consider repurchasing a small pot for those very bad skin days (period days or I'm just hormonal for no bloody reason days), when I need something with a strong backbone.

You can find it here at Sephora online or at Sephora stores.

Have you ladies tried this famous celebutante Glam Glow YouthMud Mask? What is your favourite clearing/exfoliating mask?
