When you find a good thing, you stick with it til the end. If it's one thing I love, it's face masks, and out of all the gems I've found, these are three of the best. Loved by both celebrities and bloggers alike Glam Glow has really expanded over the last year. The range includes three face masks solving different concerns and working their own little bit of skincare magic.
Youth Mud Tinglexfoliate Treatment was the original mask, and is a thick, green clay like product. Unlike a lot of masks, Youth Mud is the solves all, best all-rounder perfect if you can't put your finger on specific areas of concern but want a bit of a pick-me-up. Using a cheap foundation brush, I smooth a thin layer over my skin, and leave it for 5-10 minutes. You can feel it gently tighten and tingle, letting you know the magic is happening. The mask contains Green Tea, which you can actually see in the product and this helps to make your skin look more radiant once it's been removed. For days after your skin literally glows. I'd recommend this mask before an event as it has instant gratification and improves your skin's overall appearance.
Supermud Clearing Treatment is more of a "wet" mask compared with the Youth Mud, and is like grey mud. Rather than an overall skin detox, Supermud targets problem skin and targets concerns such as blemishes, acne, large pore and blackheads. I apply it the same ways as I apply Youthmud, and wait until the mask has fully set. There's no tingling with this mask, but it does harden and you can actually see all the oil and impurities it's drawn out. I have combination skin, leaning on the dry side, and luckily it doesn't feel tight after using this. After removing the mask, my skin looks a lot clearer and seems to sort itself out a lot faster than normal.
The newest mask to the Glam Glow collection is Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment. Looking a bit like a tub of caramel, this is the smoothest out of the three and is more a thick lotion than a clay or mud. Targeting the effects of extreme dehydration on the skin, this mask aims to moisturise, restore and calm your skin. Again, I apply this with a cheap foundation brush but leave for 10-20 minutes. Unlike the others, this mask is absorbed into the skin. Simply use a cotton pad to wipe away any excess. If you have oily skin, it's recommended you wash it off. If your skin is especially dehydrated and you want an intense treatment, try leaving it over-night. You could even put it on during a flight or post shave! After using this for a month now and again, my skin has never been smoother. My pores are less noticeable and my skin is a lot less tight. If you suffer from dehydrated skin, meet your new best friend.
