Affiliate LinkI'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.
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.
Price: $22 or $69
Size: 0.5 oz/15 g, 1.7 oz/48 g
- Rich, uniform pigmentation
- Pleasant watermelon scent and flavor
- Long wear time for a non-matte product
- Never sets/dries down
- Isn't matte
- 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.
