A while ago, Grace from AllThatSlap and I were driving back from an event discussing beauty products (seriously: we spend our days writing about beauty products, attend events to look at new ones and then our free time is spent discussing them…) when I asked what Grace’s ultimate beauty product would be. Mine at the time was Bioderma, although I’m extremely fickle so I’m sure that’s changed at least 15 times since then, and Grace’s was the GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment Mask. At the time, Grace and I had similar skin problems so I thought this was a product I definitely needed to try before forgetting all about it.
Fast forward a good few months where I’ve been researching the very best spot-fighting masks – more on that soon – when this one from GlamGlow came up again. I investigated further and found this to be so much more than your average spot-fighting clay mask as it’s packed full of skin-loving, acne-hating ingredients such as the main acids (salicylic, glycolic, lactic and mandelic among others) as well as more traditionally natural ingredients such as licorice root and eucalyptus leaf, the latter of which produces the most fantastically refreshing smell that’s lifting and cleansing without being too minty or in-your-face. I also have to give a quick mention to the aesthetics of this mask as I love, love, LOVE the white packaging! I’m rarely one to focus on such things but the contrast of the murky charcoal product against the startling white and silver casing is just awesome and totally lives up to its Glam name.
All this is good and well, but there’s no point in investing in a luxury product like this unless it actually works. I’m extremely pleased to report that it is absolutely brilliant and well deserving of it’s reputation as a serious spot fighter. It leaves skin brilliantly smooth, cleansed and extremely fresh in appearance, but most importantly, it has a very immediate effect on angry spots, shrinking them in size and drying them just enough so that they settle down but not so much so they crack and become a whole new problem. This product isn’t cheap at £44.99 for just 30ml of mask (which is apparently 17 full applications or over 1000 spot treatments – you can use it to spot treat too with apparently very good results) but it is definitely something I recommend if you’re prone to spots and want a mask to work hard on your behalf.
