Face Mask Fandom | GlamGlow YouthMud

GlamGlow Youth Mud

I’ve been wanting to try out the GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment (to give it it’s full name) for ages so when I saw that a sample was going to be in the Look Fantastic Beauty Box in November I snapped it up. Although I’ve heard lots of good things about it, it retails at £49.99 (£10 off at Look Fantastic just now though) so I really wanted to try a sample first.

The sample size I got was pretty good – enough for 3 applications. Including sea clay and volcanic minerals, GlamGlow claims to completely rejuvenate the complexion within ten minutes. It is a thick grey cream with lots of very fine exfoliating granules. It also has black sticky things in it, not really sure what they are to be honest.

Sadly, I didn’t love this. It definitely does work – it gives your skin a thorough scrub but miraculously for a clay mask, doesn’t feel too drying. You do still need to slap on a moisturiser afterwards if you have dry skin anyway, but it’s probably the least drying clay mask I have tried. However, I just didn’t like the application or feel of it. It’s messy, and it’s kind of dry so it’s hard to spread on your skin. I didn’t like the tingle sensation (or stinging if we’re being honest) and the grains and larger bits felt uncomfortable to remove.

In a way (a £50 shaped way) I’m not to upset to have found this disappointing. I can see why people like it, it does what it claims after all, but to me it just falls short. I use face masks on a weekly basis as a treat and I like to have ones that I know I’ll enjoy using. I wouldn’t look forward to this and it wouldn’t fit in with my pamper routine so it’s a pass from me.

Have you tried GlamGlow YouthMud? Did you like it more than I did?
