I’ve had problem skin for as long as I can remember. Phases of acne, oily skin, large pores, brown spots as a result of the acne and now (lucky me) fine lines. Today, I was introduced to “Glam Glow Mud Mask” at the Simply Stylist event at the W Hotel in Hollywood. The up-sell was that Glam Glow was used behind the scenes at American Idol and the show “24” and the celebrities raved how it smoothed their skin for many days after using. It is also used (per the website) in Bliss Salons, and numerous spas in Las Vegas. Glam Glows main ingredients are Volcanic Rock, Real pieces of Green Leaves, Purified Clay, Cucumber and Ivy. So, being a sucker for anything that promises to even out my skin, shrink pores and remove impurities I bought said mask.
As soon as I started applying the mask I could feel its Tingling nature that it is known for. I’m not a fan of anything that has a tingling or plumping ingredient (like the lip glosses that supposedly make your lips plump and sexy but it really makes them feel like you just made out with a tub of Icy Hot.) I was surprised I chose to buy this product. Anywho, once applied to entire face the tingling was certainly in “full affect”. People, I’m not gonna lie….it was uncomfortable for several minutes but then it does pass. Because of the Volcanic Rock in the mask it does get stiff ….no….hard, and I felt like my face would crack if I so much as thought about smiling.
The time came to rinse the mask off. I immediately felt my skins surface was much more smooth and softer. When I looked in the mirror there was a noticeable difference. I was glowing!! My pores had shrunk and the fine lines that had creeped up on me were gone!! No joke!! Glam Glow mud will now be a staple in my beauty case.
Available at Neiman Marcus for $69 for a 1.7oz jar. PS…Glam Glow won Neiman Marcus’s Beauty Award for 2012!!
