Glowing.. Glowing... GLAM. A review of GLAMGLOW Youthmud

Posted: Wed, 25 March 2015, 16:26

Inish Pharmacy recently welcomed Glamglow mud masks into their stores. I'd heard so much about this cult brand over the past few years with celebrities, models, and makeup artists all raving about it, so if it was good enough for them, I couldn't wait to try it. I decided to try Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. 

So when staff were were given samples of the product from our wonderful employers at Inish Pharmacy, we were delighted. Today I am reviewing Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment, which is the most popular in the range. It is for all skin types and can be used for both men and women. I have very pale, sensitive skin. A lot of products can be too harsh for me to use and can cause redness, irritation and burning. My skin type is also combination, which means I have areas of dry skin, and also oily blemish prone skin. I applied a test patch of the mud before beginning.

Glamglow comes in a sexy black tube and their hallmark Hollywood star is everywhere. The makers are proud of their Hollywood beginnings and I have to say, I am almost sold on the packaging alone.

The actual mask however, is not nearly as glamorous as the sleek packaging. It is a black/grey mud with bits of leaves throughout - not something that you would be inclined to place on your face. However, it did smell amazing.

After the shock to my senses, I applied the mud with a flat foundation brush as recommended by the product makers. It was actually a really great idea, as it allowed me to spread the mud smoothly over my face with no mess. It was also really time efficient. Within minutes I had applied a full mask, with a nice and even covering.

The mask became firm within minutes. Touching your face with the mask hardened is surreal. It is like touching rough plastering or the skin of an elephant. It is much firmer and stronger than any facemask I have used before. I also finally understood the term tinglexfoliate. Your face does physically tingle in about 6 minutes. You also become very aware of the pores that appear through the mask. It is amazing to watch and incredible how the mask works and the effects on your skin.

After 20 minutes I washed off the mask with my hands. I rubbed the skin in circular motions as described and exfoliated the skin.

Review of Glamglow Youthmud by Inish Pharmacy

The results

My skin has never been softer, even with a primer. It feels really moisturised and clean. I look less tired and I have a healthy glow. Blemishes had cleared by the next morning and I came to work the next day wearing no make up whatsoever, just some SPF moisturiser. Although I feel that if I were to use the mask again, I would like to see what it would be like with makeup. I would also be interested to see how many days would pass before I have another blemish.

Would I buy it?

Yes, I would. Especially as I have been blemish free for around 5 days.I would also be interested in trying the Powermud and Supermud to see which treatment would best suit me.

The product is currently on offer at Inish Pharmacy at €49.99 for Youthmud 50g.
