I’ve been obsessed with face masks ever since someone bought me a Liz Earle one about 10 Christmases ago and in 2017 my fascination seemed to reach total fever pitch. Like everyone, I’m a sucker for instant results and when it comes to skincare, there’s nothing better than a pick me up you know will work. That’s where the Glam Glow Super-Mud Mask comes in because on bad skin days when I’m breaking out, this literally saves me.
The Super-Mud contains four of Glam Glow’s revolutionary formulas in one mask. Firstly the Acnecidic-6 a blend of 6 acids, including salicylic which is designed to clear and repair your skin, then the Pore Matrix which contains activated charcoal to absorb bacteria and toxins. Then there’s the Bio Life Cell Science which soothes and regulates oil production and lastly their Teaoxi technology which uses Eucalyptus oil to freshen you up. It promises to be effective against a whole list of issues too including pores, imperfections and spots as well as razor bumps and ingrown hairs which is great for guys who shave regularly.
When you first put it on it feels quite light in comparison to conventional mud masks and it’s really gentle on the skin. Sometimes masks that specifically target acne or congestion can be really harsh or sting but I didn’t get that at all with this. The magic happens when it starts to dry though as you’ll start to see black dots on the very oily areas of your face. This is basically the charcoal working to unclog your pores and remove the build up of sebum and bacteria which causes spots. Afterwards, my skin feels so fresh and it’s perfect for controlling oil and breakouts as well as redness. After washing it off my face doesn’t feel really dry either, just clean and soothed and the oily areas are way more under control.
I managed to pick this up on sale at the M&S beauty hall however the full retail price is £42. It’s a little bit expensive but I’ve had at least 10 applications out of this pot already and the results are really impressive. I think if you’re looking to invest in something special and you have particularly oily skin it would be totally worth it.
So I’m still very much finding my feet with this whole YouTube thing but over the Christmas break I have binge watched so much, I really don’t understand why I’m not an expert yet haha. I was very, very lucky to get a surprise present from my mum, of a ring light and a microphone this Christmas. So I guess I really have no excuses now. I think it’s going to be a fun way of sharing more with you and I’m sure once I get used to talking to myself they will get a bit better! I’ve also got another one coming up about a few pieces I’ve picked up in the sales, so stay tuned for that and let me know what you think.
I get the majority of my beauty inspiration from monthly favourites and I think it’s such a good way of discovering new things. I follow a handful of people who share similar tastes to me which is both lovely (as I hear about great stuff) and painful (because I want to buy everything).
Being new to the whole video thing, I thought it would be an easy one to do and some extra practice. I’ve also been shopping a lot and trying a few new things, so I had a good chunk of items I could talk about.
I hope you like the video and as always, please let me know what you think in the box below.
