Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Face Mask | Review

Wednesday, 17 December 2014

Hello Beauties! I'm sure you've heard me mention countless times that I have super oily and uncontrollable skin, however what I don't usually mention is that its also seriously dehydrated. It's not dry and I rarely get dry patches, however after a recent skin consultation I was told that my skin is very dehydrated, which may be part of the reason my skin is oily, as it is producing extra oil to combat the dehydration. Since finding this out, I have been trying to make more of an effort to re-hydrate my skin through my skincare, but without making my oiliness and acne worse. With that in mind, I jumped at the chance to try the Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment* from Blow Ltd

Blow Ltd are a company who specialise in fast beauty. They open early and stay open late so you can go before or after work, which I think is a great idea. When I was working full time, the hardest thing I found was trying to fit all of my appointments in around working hours as everything was shut by the time I'd left the office. Blow Ltd offer a range of beauty services such as blow dries and manicures at super speedy rates so you can be in and out in half an hour - perfect if your dashing to a party or a date! They also sell a range of cult beauty brands, such as glam glow, Anastasia Beverley Hills and more.

Before I jump into reviewing the actual product, I just wanted to tell you all about the service I received from Blow Ltd. When the parcel arrived it came beautifully packaged in a black Blow Ltd box with ribbon tied over it and I just thought that it was a beautiful way to package the product and makes such a difference, I'm always impressed when companies think of the small details like this. Blow Ltd are currently doing this gift wrapping service on all of their products for Christmas, meaning that you don't even have to wrap them and if you want to post them directly to your relatives it just makes it so much easier as you know they will be presented beautifully. 

Anyway, moving on to the review. The Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment works in four different ways to keep your skin hydrated. The mask uses the newest, most advanced and extreme hydration active technologies providing deep instant extreme hydration for men and women of all ages. Glam Glow claim that the new super technologies - Dewdration (hyaluronic acid & citric acid), Hydrapack, Green Energy and Teaoxi - will leave you with hydrated, heart pounding, glowing skin. 

The mask has a gel like consistency and is a tan colour which actually looks quite funny when you put it on as it looks like you've gone a bit OTT with the fake tan, but rest assured, this does wash off! It also smells amazing. The mask smells quite tropical and summery and just has a lovely relaxing, fruity smell which I love, it definitely makes it feel a lot more luxurious. But does it work?

Glam Glow as a brand have received quite a lot of hype and rave reviews from the beauty blogging world recently, and with good reason. I left the mask on for 10 mins and my skin felt instantly calmed and refreshed. It left my skin feeling hydrated and it finally got rid of that horrible tight feeling (anyone with dehydrated skin will know what I'm talking about!). What I also liked about this mask is that while it does provide intense hydration, it doesn't leave that horrible sticky residue behind like a lot of moisturising masks do, and it doesn't feel like it's clogging up my pores. Glam Glow definitely helped to improve my dehydration issues, and it didn't worsen my oily skin problem, which was my main concern with this product, in fact my skin was a lot better after using the mask. 

What is also great about this product is that it has so many uses. This can be used on the face, neck and chest, and it can also be used as a moisturiser. Glam Glow recommend leaving the mask on for 10-20 mins depending on the dryness of your skin, however it can also be used as an overnight mask if you apply a thin layer and work it into the skin, leaving you to wake up with glowing supermodel skin. It's also really handy to have if you have any long haul flights booked anywhere. Aeroplanes can really dry out your skin, but if you apply a thin layer of the Glam Glow Thirsty Mud before take off and then dab it off with a tissue before landing, you can avoid the whole dehydration mess that a flight can leave your skin in. 

Honestly, I do think this is a wonder product, but I appreciate that it is expensive so I will be keeping this for special occasions or when my skin is feeling particularly tight and dry as I don't want to use it all in one go! If you do suffer with dry and uncomfortable skin, I would definitely recommend investing in this mask, you won't regret it!

Lots of Love,

  1. Resolution number 1 of 2015 is to use more face masks...It's crazy how little I actually use! My skin thanks me for it when I do though! This sounds brilliant but it is a bit pricey for upkeep- good for special occassions though x

  2. I've never heard of Blow ltd, sounds like a great company though! I want to try Glamglow Supermud, I just don't even have the money in one time.

    1. I was so impressed by the service at Blow LTD, I will definitely be ordering from them in the future! I think you can also get Glam Glow in smaller packets which are a little cheaper which would be a good option if you just wanted to give it a go? xx

  3. I have a little sachet of this that I'm yet to try. Do you use facial oil? I have oily, spot prone skin too, but my skin drinks it up! My favourite is by Antipodes and it's so nourishing, but it soothes and calms my breakouts at the same time xx

    1. I use the Tarte Maracuja Oil from time to time when my skin is feeling a little tight, but I must admit, I'm terrible at remembering to use it! I do find that my skin drinks it up but it's a little too much for everyday use - great for a skin treat though! :) xx

  4. I really want to try this product because I always hear rave reviews of it. It's crazy expensive though! I'll ask for it for a present :) x

  5. I haven't tried one of the glam glow masks as they seem so expensive but worth it by all the positive reviews and thoughts on their products. Might have to treat myself :) X
