You guys know , I love a good mask. Charcoal, bubbles…if it’s a new fangled kind of mask then I’m trying it.
I am a long time fan of the GlamGlow line of products, particularly the SuperMud Clearing Treatment, which I reviewed here. This is good stuff that really makes a difference in your skin. For that reason, they often come with a hefty price tag, more on that later.
The newest addition to the GlamGlow mask lineup is the GravityMud Firming Treatment.
Here is what GlamGlow promises of it’s new offering:
“GravityMud is an out of this world innovative peel off mud treatment that instantly leaves skin feeling firmer and more lifted. Mega targeted ingredients transform from white to brilliant chrome, delivering toned sexy contours powered by teaoxi marshmallow and licorice leaf.”
My first thought after reading up on this mask was, ” What the heck is teaoxi?” Fear not, the GlamGlow website has an answer. “TEAOXI™ technology is a ground-breaking way to get active ingredients from the jar to your skin for faster results. Each mud treatment contains real tea leaves. TEAOXI™ is the magic behind the powerful instant results.”
So, ummm..I still don’t really know what teaoxi is, but sign me up for toned sexy contours please.
Im not even going to lie, what piqued my interest about this mask at first was the fact that it turns chrome on your face. It doesn’t take much to amuse me.
As I mentioned, GlamGlow products are not cheap. The GravityMud Firming treatment is $79 CAD for 1.7 oz of product. Ouch. But, with skincare I feel like if products work well then we should probably invest in them if we can. Skin is our largest organ, after all.
Like all the other GlamGlow masks, The GravityMud comes in schmancy pretty packaging, this time purple.
The actual “mud” doesn’t look like mud to me at all. It sort of looks like glue with a pearlescence to it.
To use, I applied a generous , even layer to my freshly cleansed dry skin.
Then I waited about half an hour until the mask was completely dry. ( Instructions say 20-30 minutes). This mask smells wonderful. Its a fresh clean smell with some sweetness to it. I have heard it described as a jellybean smell.
When it dries, it does indeed turn chrome. Very cool. While it feels firm when dry, it is not overly tight.
Warning: Glamorous post shower photo ahead…
I feel that the tin man would be incredible enamoured with me.
While peel off masks are the absolute best for my skin, I often dread removing them as it can be a painful and tedious job. I am happy to report that this mask comes off like a dream. It removes easily from the skin without tugging or having to rub at all.
After removing the mask, I felt like it got rid of any top layer oils, dirt or impurities. I think it probably also pulled some makeup gunk out of my pores ( lovely). Best of all, my skin felt tight and fresh.
I do not feel like the difference in my skin was necessarily a perceivable one, but I feel like it could only contribute to healthy , radiant and tighter skin with regular use.
So, another winner from GlamGlow. The GravityMud Firming Treatment peel off mask is excellent if you are looking for a good one to invest in. However, I still think the price tag is a little hefty.
If you’ve tried this mask, let me know all about it in the comments!
