I'm a slut for face masks. I have way more than I need and I never end up using any of them up, so I have a little graveyard of half used up and dried out pots hanging out in my bathroom. Oops. Luckily the very expensive GlamGlow has these little $22 pots (obviously I have the tube version) that are more of a 3-5 serving sizes opposed to a big ol' $69 tub.

This mask is pretty unique. It applies and dries like a mud mask, but once you wet it it transforms into a cleansing oil. Whaaaat!? When I first applied this it kind of felt (and smelled) like I was applying a conditioner with some grit in it to my face... it was kind of weird, but it was one of the quickest mud mask applications I've done. It also dried very quickly, making it a great mask to do if you don't have a lot of time to yourself. Also, if you're a fan of tingle, you'll get some with this guy.

Taking it off was an interesting experience. Upon initial contact with water, it has a gel-ish feeling, but after a second splash it takes on a nice cleansing oil consistency... with some pretty large exfoliating particles in it. So on top of a mud mask that pulls out impurities, you get some nice mechanical exfoliation. The milky oil also rinses pretty quickly too!

I definitely found myself with a very tight, squeaky clean feeling to my skin afterwards so I'd stay away from this (and other mud masks tbh) if you're a dry skinned kinda person. I've got combo/oily and I found myself really needing some intense moisture to make my skin feel less contracted.

TL;DR section:

Price: $22 or $69 

Size: 0.5 oz/15 g, 1.7 oz/48 g

Availability: Neiman MarcusSephora, GlamGlow

  • Rich, uniform pigmentation
  • Pleasant watermelon scent and flavor
  • Long wear time for a non-matte product
  • Never sets/dries down
  • Isn't matte
  • Transfers
  • Feels a bit goopy

Cruelty free: Supposedly cruelty free, but no leaping bunny.

Final Verdict: Overall, I think this is a great, super quick cleansing mask that takes about 7 minutes to get on, dry, and off that works best for people on the oilier side of the skin spectrum, but it needs a face cream, not moisturizer, afterwards. The full size is also really pricey, so splashing out out for the smaller one is a bit more palatable.
