GlamGlow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask - Review & Photos
December 10, 2012
I was so excited to see this in my Glossybox Event gift bag! This review is quite soon after receiving the product but I really wanted to get this review out because so far, I love this product. I talked quite a bit about my opinion of the mask in the video so this will be more about the product and itself.Hopefully the photos are okay, there was so much glare from this packaging it was very hard to photograph. (Hopefully a fancy camera and setup will be coming in the near future!)Packaging:
Front of the outer boxThis packaging is made of thick sturdy matte black paper. It has chrome-like silver details around the border, designs and font. I find the simple but luxurious design very enticing. I am a sucker for fonts and this is exactly the font I would peg to this brand, does that make sense to anyone else?!Well hello to you too!Inner flapsThere is a lot of the word "sexy" throughout this packaging!Suspension packaging holding the productThe product itself is inside this tin or alluminum and plastic tub. Very sleek looking with quite a bit of information written on it. If you were to throw out the box, the tub would explain the directions for you. Inside this tub was a little stopper to add an extra seal, you can see it in the video.I plan on continuing to use this. I would DEFINITELY consider buying this if I was able to get a good deal on it. I can be quite frugal sometimes! It did leave my skin feeling great afterwards and I definitely recommend those interested to try it out! I do think it is worth the money, especially if you have clear skin to begin with!Price: $64 - $69
Ingredients, Directions & Claimed Results:
Hopefully that is visible. Glam Glow has developed a proprietary technology called Teaoxi which is "a time release technology for instant camera ready glowing skin." I am assuming it has something to do with the mix of ingredients, if I find out more I will update.The front claims: Natural, Cruelty Free, Vegan, Paraben Free... but there's a catch! The small symbol above it says 99.7, I'm assuming that is percentage. Upon further investigation of the box, there are 5 ingredients with the word paraben in it. I am no expert, nor do I really know what is a paraben and what is not but if a word clearly says it, I feel it's safe to assume.Ingredients List:Water, Montmorillonite, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Polyethylene, Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Extract, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Hybrida (Lavender) Oil, Glycerin, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea. Directions:-Apply a thin layer to clean face (can also be used on the neck and chest).-Remove mask with water in circular motions to exfoliate.-Use twice a week or as often as desired.-Seal lid tightly.-To re-liquefy, add drops purified water and stir. Claimed Results: - Leaves skin noticably glowing and radiant- Activates collagen synthesis- Provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation *- Helps to leave skin smoother, brighter and softer *- Provides tighter skin texture and tighter pores *- Helps to provide you with a more youthful appearance- Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils- Helps to protect against free radical damage* = I agree!I do honestly feel that it sucked most of the moisture out of skin though.Overall:
Swatches & Product Photos:
Gray green colour with chunks of Green Tea leaf throughout.The smell of this is amazing. You can definitely smell all the great ingredients in this product.As you can see there are quite large pieces of green tea leaves which is something I may have to get used to. I used a brush to apply it because I felt I was exfoliating while applying it with my hands. The video somewhat shows the results it gave me. My skin is a wreck and I was not expecting miracles but it definitely improved the feel and texture of my skin.
