So yeah, sorry, I’m not completely sold on Glamglow after trying out the Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment. Oh! And those those silly Bright Mud Eye Treatments!

I’m also not particularly keen on the fact that their expensive masks come in a jar! I mean, if they are as great as you say and they contain all these incredible good for you skin ingredients why are you putting them in a jar!? After the air hits that mask it’s going to be rendered completely useless! Buh-bye money!

But good news!

The travel size 0.5 oz jars of GlamGlow is now sold in a tube exclusively at Nordstrom! They are still $22, they are still 0.5 oz in size, but the packaging has changed and they are now available in a squeeze tube which means you can keep them nice and fresh. It also means you don’t have to spend one million dollars to try the larger size as these small 0.5 oz jars typically will get you two to three uses depending how much you use.

Nordstrom carries them in the Youthmud, Powdermud, Thirstymud, and Flashmud formulas plus they ship free!

So, if you wanna try ’em this is a good way to do so.

Be warned though, I haven’t seen much difference in my skin when using them but I’m still working my way through the formulas so I’m hoping to hit the one that does work!

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.

    Oh god, I loved their Supermud but the jar packaging is killing me! I had the full size jar and it dried out within a few months. Since it cost me an arm and leg I was not happy about it! I now use the Sephore brand mud mask and it works just as well and so much cheaper!

    I agree that the use of a jar to contain any skincare product where efficacy is a concern is rather frustrating, but saying the formula is thus “rendered completely useless” feels a tad sensational.

      Exposure to air plus using your fingers to apply will really make it go bad rather quickly :-/ A tube would have been a smarter packaging to start with rather than introduce it so much later on.

    Supermud has really worked for me as a spot treatment on my occasional zit, I wish it were available this way.

    I’m with you, not impressed with the overpriced Glam Glow…in fact I found the few things I sampled actually irritated my sensitive skin. No go for me! 🙁

  • Iris

    These sound awesome. I’ve been wanting to try the masques but do not wish to commit to a large size.

    Exactly how I feel about GlamGlow as well. I also don’t want to shell out a million dollars or so on a product with tea leaves in it when I can just rip up a lipton bag, mix it with any run-of-the-mill clay mask and schmear it all over my face (which I have done and the caffeine/antioxidants really visibly tighten and refresh your skin).

    But the tube packaging does make it a little more likely for me to try… Thanks as always Ms. Muse!
