Glam Glow Bright Mud Eye Treatment2

Glam Glow Bright Mud Eye Treatment you too expensive for my tastes! I recently purchased the 12 pack of this new mud eye treatment mask for $69 at Sephora and I have to say they are just too EXPENSIVE for what they don’t do.

Glam Glow Bright Mud Eye Treatment are tiny pods that contain a bioactive mud mask that can be used under your eyes to help with puffiness, dark circles, and fine lights. The formula also happens to promise to brighten and hydrate. It contains nutrients as well as minerals that brighten your eyes.

To use you simply tap the product under your eyes to active it, wait for 2 to 3 minutes, and wipe off. Apparently results are visible with your first use.

I used all 12 and didn’t see a damn thing happen.


It contains some emollient ingredients but I felt a bit dry coming out of the experience. Going on the texture has a nice hydrating feel but contains these odd seaweed-like chunks that I found irritating. This has a pleasant herbal minty scent and I didn’t experience any tingling during application or during the wear. As you head into the three minute mark you’ll notice the product becomes less hydrating and produces more of a drying effect and tightens around the eye. This makes for a pain to wipe off excess…I find I’m tugging to get it all off which isn’t exactly a good thing around the delicate area of your eye.

This does contain caffeine but unfortunately I didn’t really experience the depuffing benefits from such a great ingredient, my eyes still very much looked puffy after one application and after all 12 as well.

On a whole you might experience some temporary tightening if you have saggy under eye issue due to the unusual film formers in the ingredients but aside from that any other anti-aging benefits or brightening benefits are an unfortunate bust for me.

I really had hopes for this as it sounded promising but it just didn’t work out for me.

Tried it?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I got a sample of this, and it stung my eyes so badly immediately after applying I had to rinse it off! I can’t speak for how it works, because it was too painful. This was a no-go for me.

  • Georgia

    I was looking at this, thanks for taking the bullet on it, glad I didn’t spend the money on it. You are the best Muse.

  • Fancie

    I tried all of their masks and really liked them so I thought I’d grab samples of the eye treatment. I haven’t tried them yet but now I’m not too excited lol

  • Jen

    I received this as a Sephora sample and was glad cuz I like the Youthmud and Supermud masks. But it did nothing! I only used one pod for both eyes (entire orbital area) and now I have little red bumps in that area. 🙁

  • Stephanie

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who wasn’t impressed with these! I got a couple samples, and they just didn’t do it for me. The Glamglow face masks are worth every penny, though.

    • Isabella Muse

      I’ve been wanting to try the mask so so badly! good to know they are better Stephanie!

  • Lacy

    i received a sample of this with my online order of the hourglass blush but have yet to use, from seeing what it actually looks like and your review I think I’ll just toss in the trash! I was originally intrigued by this but now am mad I wasted a free sample on choosing this! Thanks for the review muse!

    • Isabella Muse

      try it out Lace! You might like it I’d be curious to hear your thoughts ;-D my pleasure!

      • Lacy

        So I tried it and wasn’t wowed. I will say it felt very refreshing going on which was nice but I didn’t really get any other benefit from it. I also felt the brightening and depuffing effect were lacking and it was slightly a pain to get off as you mentioned as well. Also the texture was weird. What’s up with the chunks/seed things, it be great for a face scrub of some sort but an eye mask? Seriously? no thanks! Also as it dried and became tighter I felt like it actually exacerbated my fine lines from drying them out and the slight tugging from my wipes when trying to get it off. I’m with you, it was also a bust for me.

        • Isabella Muse

          the seaweed stuff is weird…I don’t get the point!? it was odd! lol! yeah, we had the exact same experience le sigh!

  • breyerchic04

    I have a sample and I’m going to try it. Someone said you can do both eyes with a single dot, so you get 24 uses not 12. That’d make it pretty reasonable to me if it really worked.

  • Christine

    I haven’t tried this one, but I love the Glam Glow Super Mud. A lot of people say you can find cheaper alternatives, but I’ve tried a lot of masks and this one is my favorite. Since you have dry skin, you might to check out their new hydrating mask.

  • Ashley

    I haven’t tired it, but I’ve been seeing these advertised all over Sephora and had a chance to try them when I bought online the other day at Sephora.com. To me they don’t even sound appealing.

  • Elexia

    I LOVE the original Glam Glow mask; therefore, I very enthusiastically grabbed this little cutie as it made it’s first appearance on Sephora. My expectations were high due to the cost of the product. After applying, I felt burning but decided the “burn” must mean the product was working magic. After washing the goop (eye mask) off, I discover severe redness and very mad skin. It looked tremendously worse. After wearing heavy concealer for a week, the area finial returned to normal. I honestly did not notice anything positive. Sorry Glam Glow, it was a fail for me.

  • Jen

    I have no experience with their eye products, but face masks were a bust for me too. I really saw no benefit beyond what my freedman drugstore mask does for me.

  • SirenPrincess

    Thanks for the review, Muse. I got a free sample of these and have been trying to decide if I want to use them or not. Reviews are so mixed! I do like the Glam Glow Youth Mask even if it is gross to use. But I’m worried that some people have said it burns. Good to know it didn’t irritate your eyes, but if you saw no effect, what’s the point?

    • Isabella Muse

      divine it Siren who knows you might like! i didn’t get the tingle but a few reader’s spoke of it in comments!

  • Deb

    Once again, Muse comes riding to the rescue! (I hear trumpets in the background). I picked up a few sample packs of these with some online orders and have yet to crack them open. And now I can save my time. GlamGlow can kiss my red headed, Irish you-know-what if they think I’m going to be tugging on the skin around these 57 yr old eyes. I mean really, who wants to do that no matter what your age? I have read so many crap reviews of their mud mask but I had hoped maybe they would get this right. Appears maybe they just make crap products, non? Big hugs Muse for saving me from having to claw at the skin under my eyes to remove something.

  • Amy

    I actually saw some de-puffing with these, but I definitely think it was temporary tightening, rather than any actual long-term benefits. I have tried a bunch of stuff, and this is one of the only things that has had any effect at all on my undereye puffiness, so I have to give it some credit. However, it’s hard to pay that much for something that gives no lasting benefits, unlike an eye cream that supposedly reduces bags over time, etc. I did a test with this on one eye and Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream on the other eye, and I saw similar results.

  • Michele

    I bought a package of these and used them all. I was completely unimpressed as they really did not do much for me. They slightly improved some puffiness under my eyes, but really, I could have achieved the same results by placing a spoon in the fridge and putting it over my eye area. Way too money for this product, I’m afraid. I will not be re-purchasing.

    • Isabella Muse

      sigh same thing here Michele, just too expensive and didn’t work 🙁

  • Nikki

    I actually like these. Not for daily use, but I used a bit on a morning where I had only gotten about half of my usual hours of sleep and looked like a zombie. After this stuff, I looked human again!

    Granted, I did get mine from ebay for much cheaper and get two uses (for both eyes) out of a single round. I would never for 12 uses at almost 70 bucks. But for emergencies and 38? Sure, why not? 😀

  • Iris

    Disappointing, indeed. I may still try this out of curiousity if Sephora has a sale.

  • Amy

    I tried some samples of the eye masks and I agree! Uuuuseleeessss. However, the glamglow mud mask is my HG mask for pores and acne!

  • Elexia

    I love their face mud mask but I do not enjoy this eye mask. It irritated my eye area cause it to be red and itchy for weeks.

  • Lola

    I actually have tried their entire line and loved it. I actually bought the sample first just for the eye treatment and used it for 5 days straight. I kid you not I did see the difference. My dark circles under my eyes started to slowly become lighter and less noticeable by day 3. The only thing I don’t like is the price, 12 pods for $69? Unless I use it how I did which was half of 1 pod per eye. I loved it I really did and I also did a review on it with pictures on my site. Lovely site as well! xo

    • Isabella Muse

      happy to hear it Lola! I’m glad it worked for you!!!!! I wish I had the same results le sigh!
