GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Mask

We've all used masks and to be honest, i've never been the biggest fan.
The GlamGlow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment is priced at £39.99 ($69.00)
I thought this was a hefty price to pay for a 34g pot of mask and it is, however you definitely get what you pay for.

GlamGlow claims this mask will fight all common skin concerns and has active ingredients, which act as a deep pore vacuum to draw impurities from the pores and clear them.
Sounds a little gross having excess sebum drawn out of your pores but if you take a look at my 'attractive' picture you can clearly see that there is a more oily residue appearing as little dots from my pores.

It contains lots of scientific sounding ingredients with some familiar names such as Glycolic and Salicylic acid to improve skin texture.
Pyruvic acid helps overtime to reduce old scarring and Azelaic acid helps fight breakouts.

This mask goes on a creamy grey lotion texture and dries off to a hard clay finish.
GlamGlow advises to leave it on for anything up to 20 minutes. I only managed to keep it on for 10 as it began to feel tight on my skin and as I can't stop talking it cracked and felt a little itchy.
However, you can use on individual spots as a treatment, if you hate the feeling of wearing a mask.

Once on it fells slightly tingly and fresh but not unpleasant.
The smell is a strong liquorice and Eucalyptus scent.

It's pretty aasy to wash off, I used a muslin cloth.
Afterwards my skin felt super soft and smooth. I did moisturise immediately as my skin felt tight.
Sometimes I will breakout after using masks but as yet I haven't, so fingers crossed!

For people who suffer breakouts or blackheads or for people getting their skin in order for a big occasion I think you would really appreciate this mask.
It's a real investment and if used as a full face mask you can expect around 17 uses but if just using on individual spots you can get up to 1000 uses!
It has a shelf life of 9 months but hopefully you won't have 1000 spots in that time frame!

To purchase go to or



  1. That looks pretty scary but I'd love to try it!

  2. I love face masks! This one sounds so good. I'd love to try it one day but I don't know where to buy it near me!

  3. Absolutely LOVE this stuff! I enjoy seeing all the gross crud coming out of my pores. (:

  4. I suspect the stinging came from the eucalyptus and peppermint which are irritating to skin and should not be in a product like this, especially if it also contains salicylic acid. That's just asking for trouble. OTOH, I think that a product that has all these ingredients in it is already going to be irritating, while at the same time not likely to do very much since none of them can actually DO anything if they're only applied to the skin for a few minutes. Seems to me the only really effective ingredient in this mask is the clay, and the rest just a really good idea that won't work. If it weren't for the eucalyptus I'd say this might be a great spot treatment; but with it, this sounds like a product that is going to do more damage than good, which is a shame.

  6. Hi, I've heard a lot of mixed reviews for this product; some say its absolutely amazing and others say it's horrible and made their skin worse.. I have really oily skin and my pores tend to get clogged up regardless of how many times I cleanse my skin or use masks etc. it's really problematic when I apply make up because it just makes my skin feel yucky and horrible.. Would you recommend this for oily skin? Also is there any places you can get a sample of it rather than buying it seeing as it is an expensive product?

    Ps I love your videos lol

  7. Any light clay will do the same thing as it dries. :)

  8. I've suffered with terrible blackheads on my nose for years, finally after using this face mask, they are starting to disappear.

    If you go on Gorgeous Shop they have it for £30 which is a lot cheaper than the rrp.

  9. this looks amazing! so pricey but probably worth it... maybe next pay day!!
    thanks for the review :)

  10. Really want to try this out, I don't want to purchase the huge product before without a sample and I think you can find samples of this product online too as a trial before buying the huge thing so I might do that! Thank you for the post it was really helpful!
