GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment Review

GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment
Packaging: 4.5 out of 5
Review: I cannot stress how hyped up this product has been, particularly over at Youtube land. I've been swept along with the hysteria of cult products before and coming out disappointed or underwhelmed. And yet, I still find myself wanting to try this product. I mentioned that I have a problem with blackheads here. This mask is one of the several purchases that I've made in an attempt to tackle that problem.

This mask comes in a luxurious plastic and glass jar. At least I believe it is the case from the feel of it. I gave it a 4.5 for packaging because beauty products are easily contaminated in jars. Otherwise, I think the quality is excellent. The "mud" is a dark grey with chunks in it. As it dries on your face, it turns into a lighter shade of grey. This is an expensive mask. To get more mileage out of it, I only apply it to my problem areas, essentially my T-zone. All you need is one layer and it takes 15-20 minutes to work its magic.

Now comes the answer to the most important question. Does it work? It depends on what you're after. If you want something that clears out your blackheads then this is the mask for you. Mind you, it only rids you of black heads temporarily. My pores are usually replaced with fresh blackheads by the end of the day. My skin definitely feels cleaner and looks clearer immediately after using this product. However, it is not effective at busting pimples or acne.

Overall, I do think that this is by far the best mask I've tried. It's unfortunate that it's not the magical solution that some reviewers imply it to be. Perhaps my expectations were raised a little too high from all the hype. It is still more efficacious than other masks that I've used. At this point, I'm not sure if I'd repurchase it. But I do know that until I find something even better, this is the top go-to mask on my beauty shelf.

Have you ever tried GlamGlow? Do you have a favourite mask? 


  1. I really want to try this! I'm also sucked in by the hype with this one so I appreciate your opinion!

  2. Thanks for the review! So many people rave about this, so at least it's good at removing blackheads.

  3. EVERYONE seems to be raving on about Glamglow! Glad to hear that this has its negatives! I think the price is a bit steep for a cleansing mask. I'm on the lookout for more affordable options at the moment. Maybe something with charcoal in it might do a similar job?

  4. I've been wanting to try this mask for ages so thanks for your review! I'm so disappointed to hear it doesn't do much for blemishes, definitely rethinking purchasing this.
