Glam Glow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask Might Be My Next Beauty Purchase

Glam Glow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask is getting a good deal of coverage lately thanks to the fact it is now being carried at Sephora.

I’m thinking it’ll be my next beauty purchase after sniffing this minty fresh mud mask at my local Sephora.

Anyone try it?

Glam Glow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask is a ten minute at home facial mask that works to create radiant, glowing skin. It activates moisturizing collagen synthesis which provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation, and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer.

I heart it BURNS like mofo…! But that intense tingle cools down to a tightening mud mask experience….!

I’m quite curious about the glowing, softer, smoother, brighter skin promise and want to try it.

They offer samples on the Glam Glow website for $11.99 and I’m thinking I might head that route before indulging in the full $69 jar.

Anyone try it?

    I got a sample of it at Sephora and it was pretty amazing – you definitely feel the mint and salt working their tingly magic. It sucks up oil like crazy as well, so maybe not the best for dry skin. After rinsing it off, I certainly saw a brightening effect and my skin felt smooth. But $69? I can’t imagine myself ever paying that amount for a mask. Hope I get another sample.

      I was actually very worried about my dry skin and this mint..hmmm sounds like it might make things worst!

      I swear, Makeupalley is so nitpicky! A lot of products get terrible reviews for one little gripe while bloggers rave or rant about the product.

    I received a sample of this a while back. It’s grey-ish black and comes out quite thick, almost like toothpaste. It contains a lot of particles that look like bits of seaweed and sand. The scent and feeling is very minty and cooling. It dries quickly and then you rub/rinse it off. I would NOT recommend this to anyone that has sensitive skin (or even normal to sensitive skin) as it is quite abrasive/rough. The particles are not rounded so it feels quite scratchy even when you spread/rub it on as gently as possible. It leaves my skin soft and slightly pink after using but I don’t know if that is a good thing (the pink part I mean). I think it might be because it’s been slightly irritated from the scratchy bits. I think they are much better products out there that can do a better job without tearing at your skin. Sorry!

    I want to try this too! I’ve seen this sometimes at the Costco by my house (in LA). I think it was about $45

  • Jen

    Super overpriced! It’s teeny tiny. For half the price you can buy the ingredients and make it yourself. I did a bentonite/apple cider vinegar mask today and its the ultimate in cleansing and brightening masks!

  • Shelby

    I’m going to ask for a Sample next time I’m at Sephora, really want to try it.

  • anni

    i tried a sample of it from sephora, and honestly, it didn’t seem to do anything. it felt nice on, but that was about it…way too expensive for what you can get with just a queen helene mint julep mask. so glad i didn’t buy it.

    • kimkats

      I was thinking it sounded an awful lot like the QH mask! I’d rather spend the $$ on that and find out I don’t like it anymore than coff up $69 for an eensy jar of mud and mint and find out I hate it.

    I seriously LOVE Glamglow, it’s something that my mom-in-law and I do together every weekend. It definitely makes your skin super smooth and “glowy” but that only lasts for a day honestly. It is super pricy, and definitely more of a luxury than necessity. It does smell awesome though!

  • Liane

    I tried this and it was WAY too harsh. I wouldn’t recommend this for you since you have dry skin.

  • Cj

    Omg thank you for posting about the samples! I’ve been wanting to try this for a while but could never justify the high price for barely any product. I already put in an order for the samples last night, I’m a little worried now tho a lot of people on here are saying it isn’t good…

    • the Muse

      my pleasure! I thought $12 bucks was nicer than paying full price ;-D It seems like a harsh scrub but still glad I ordered it, curious minds!

      • Cj

        Exactly and I’ve always heard so many amazing things about it. Plus I really like how they market it to guys as well ๐Ÿ˜€ *feels included*

        • the Muse

          you’re ALWAYS included ;-D <3! I have too...and now that it is at sephora it seems to get even more raves/attention! I'm curious could prove AMAZINGS!

    How do you feel about Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque? As far as I can tell they are pretty similar in ingredients, and I would prefer less mint in my masks and I have very oily skin. Have you tried the Freeman’s clay masks? You might enjoy the Avocado, Acai or Seamineral clay masks – I find them much less drying than QH and they have such pretty colors.

    • the Muse

      it’s a decent mask for the price abi ๐Ÿ™‚ freeman’s masks are quite nice as well for their price point!

    I bought the set of both kinds of Glamglow, $69 at Sephora, and they arrived Monday. I have used it every other day, and it is taking blemishes off my face that I’ve been trying to get rid of for months! I can’t say enough good about it, awesome, love it! I’m 62, and my 37 year old daughter told me about it, as she had enlarged pores and blackheads, which have totally disappeared after 2 weeks of use, every other day!
