GlamGlow Review



 
I'd been reading reviews for months about a product called GlamGlow which is an exfoliating mud mask for your face. I love exfoliating my skin as I feel it makes a noted difference to how my skin looks and feels so I was interested to see how this would work for me. GlamGlow aims to give a glowing complexion for 3 days so I became very curious if it would do anything for me. I consider myself to have quite normal skin- a bit dry in winter and a bit more greasy in the summer months with the odd hormonal break out. My lovely friend's over at Marks & Spencer have just started to stock GlamGlow so they kindly sent me over a "Little Sexy" (15ml) to try out. It retails for £22.50.
 
The pros
This little pot has enough for I would say 3-4 faces of the mask. I applied it  when I came out of the shower and removed about 10 minutes later. It hardens and turns from a grey colour to an off white colour. It feels grainy and has a very distinct smell to it. A lot of people had reported it feeling very stingy but I felt it was more just of a "thermal heat" feeling than anything. I applied it with my finger tips and removed it with a warm muslin cloth. I definitely felt a huge difference in my skin- it felt smoother to the touch. I didn't notice a huge difference in how my skin looked until I applied my makeup. My makeup just sat beautifully and I felt like I had just had a facial. This product seems idea for all facial lovers. I LOVE facials but they require free time and the good ones are usually a bit pricey so GlamGlow is a fabulous alternative. I also used GlamGlow a second time but only applied it across my t-zone. This was a great way to highlight the areas of skin where I would have the most problems.
 
The cons
For £22.50 you only get 15ml of product which means it works out about £7.50 per use which is quite expensive. However, it is good compared to some high end brands. It can also be a bit tricky to apply with your hands. I ended up with more of it behind my nails than on my face! Using an old makeup brush (foundation probably would be best) to spread it evenly would be a great idea.
 
Overall, I liked GlamGlow. I like the concept of it and I liked the effect it gave. Would I re-purchase it? I don't know. I think it is definitely a great product to use prior to a wedding or formal and is a great alternative to a facial. I think I would re-purchase if I had something really important to attend!
 
Have any of you tried GlamGlow or are interested to try it now?
