This Review has been a long time coming, there is a little story to this.. Basically a few weeks back I was having some serious spot troubles, they appeared around my chin and jawline and they just wouldn't budge what-so-ever, that's when I hit the net and did some research on spot clearing products and came across the GlamGlow Supermud.
I have seen GlamGlow masks around before but the price always put me off at around £49.99 a pot! so while I was on the GlamGlow site I spotted they did a samples kit you can buy, it includes..

|The Try Before You Buy Kit|
I thought that if I bought it this way I get to see what I like best without splashing the cash on something that I didn't think id like, it was £17 for all of these samples on their website doing it this way is a great idea if you are unsure like I was.
But I'm here to tell you all why GlamGlow Supermud is totally worth it!
I ripped open my little sachet of supermud, painted it all over my face to let it dry for 20 mins, then washed it off..I couldn't actually believe my eyes !! I was astounded that a 20 minute mask would make such a difference to my troubled skin.
|There was no way on earth I was showing anyone what was going on underneath this sachet!|
Lets get into the details now shall we?!
The first thing you will see is how beautifully packaged it is. The GlamGlow Supermud comes in a white hexagonal box with silver and black writing then when you open the box your greeted with a cheeky "Hello Sexy" on the inside..nice touch GlamGlow.
Inside the box lays the little gem itself in a very special looking white and silver tin to match the outer box.
|It even shows on the box that it has won an Insiders Beauty Award 2013!|

All of these great properties in one little jar, surely it all seems worth the money now, just think how much you would have to spend to target these things with separate products? *wink wink* trust me to give you an
I apply Supermud to freshly cleansed skin with an old foundation brush (this made me use less product and helped spread everything out..plus no messy hands, Bonus!) while avoiding the eye area, paying more attention to any problem areas such as my chin and nose.
It is like your typical clay mask consistency, slightly thick and dark in colour. It smells just like liquorice but not too strong, I rather like it to be honest. I then leave it on for 20 minutes max and watch as it dries. While the mask dries it slightly tingles but nothing you cant cope with, it dries to a grey colour but your left with teeny black spots on it which is all the dirt/grime being pulled out of your pores..sounds gross but pretty cool at the same time as you know its really working (you can see it!).
Your face will also feel very tight and stiff which is to be expected with a clay mask, I tried to eat a slice of toast with this on and it was proven to be very difficult, obviously I was hungry and couldn't wait 20 mins haha!
It was pretty messy to wash off, but when I caught a glimpse of my face after....wow! my pores where smaller, the sore under-the-skin spots I had where way less red and sore. My skin looked much brighter, fresh and smoother... its that fantastic after just one application. My skin felt slightly dry after but nothing a bit of moisturiser didn't sort out.
I use this mask once a week and my skin has never looked better, i even use this as an on the spot treatment overnight and it works fabulously.
My other half isn't going to appreciate me saying this, but he loves this product just as much as me. He will come out of the bath room with this plonked on his spots before bed; then on the days when I go to put the mask on he has to have it on all over too, he's not into his skincare what-so-ever but he was as impressed at how good this product made his skin look, and i have to say his skin really does look so much fresher, smoother and brighter.
He's like "Zoe are we Glamglowing tonight?" ...(sorry Nick)
I cant rate this product enough! Thanks for making such an amazing product GlamGlow, it was really #loveatfirstuse.
I think I will re-purchase this forever.
Next on my Glamglow wish list is Thirstymud, the sample I tried was superb and so hydrating, it also smells amazing and coconutty which i love of course.
GlamGlow Supermud is £34.99 on Lookfantastic.com at the moment RRP £49.99
