Sample Review: GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment!

The hype! The hype! I'm always a little hesitant when a product has a huge hype because 9/10 they just fall short. Revlon Lip Butters, looking at you. So there was no way I was going to buy the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment at £40 for a tiny tub. But I was given this sample in a French Sephora and thought I would give it a try. Side note: I love that they give out samples, Boots needs to start doing that.

I don't have problem skin but I like a good cleaning every now and again because once in a while the products I use for my dry skin feel like they're not soaking up as well because my cleanser is oil based, my masks are oil based, my moisturiser is oil based and it just a lot of oil.

So I ripped open the sachet and slathered my face in the weird dark grey goop (technical term) and waited, sending several selfless to my friends making various faces. It dried to a pale grey but left me with really attractive dark grey dots on my nose where I presume it was sucking out all the oil from my pores. I then took to the bathroom where it washed off really easily and sat down in front of my magnifying mirror to have a look.

The Result? My pores did seem invisible and my skin felt tight but not too dry, but after moisturising and sleeping, this effect all but vanished. My skin looked just like it had before I did the mask. Maybe it's something you need to use repeatedly but you'd hope the results would last longer.
My friend Ashley has this mask too but has combination skin and she liked it, it made her skin a little dry but worked pretty well.

Am I going to buy it? I don't think so. My funds don't quite stretch to a £40 face mask but I would be very interested in looking into similar face masks that can make my pores disappear like that for days I need my pores to go away!

Have you tried this mask? What did you think?


  1. ah this sounds a little lame compared to the hype.. shame! x

    1. It is but I'm glad I got to try it before I forked out for the whole £40! Samples are so useful. <3
