Glam Glow Mud TreatmentsFriday, June 01, 2012
GlamGlow’s revolutionary product is taking Hollywood by storm. The problem is that it's quite expensive (approx PHP 4000+ for a small jar) and I know that we need to test this as it was recently launched in Philippines.
Designed for backstage use in the entertainment, music, fashion and award industries for immediate camera-ready skin, GLAMGLOW® is popular with celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Miley Cyrus, Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana Rancic and more. According to the brand, just 10-minutes of using this mud mask treatment gives you instant results including a noticeable 3-day glow by stimulating the skin’s collagen synthesis. Let' see!

According to the press release, "GLAMGLOW® contains mud from France’s Mediterranean Sea (home to glamorous Cannes, St. Tropez and Monaco) ancient volcanic pumice rock and TEAOXI® GLAMGLOW’s groundbreaking patent pending time-release technology. TEAOXI® delivers a blend of time-release antioxidants containing fresh Super-Squalene, EGCG Super-Antioxidants & Polyphenols directly into the mud from real pieces of tea leaf contained in the jar."
(+) This you can see even with the jar alone.
(+) As it hardens, there you can feel some tightening and tingling which I think is good as the product's working.
(+) The results? You can see below showing the skin of my forehead before, during and after the test. To tell you the truth, I have bad skin - I usually get breakouts and dull skin to the the many products that I use, stress and lack of time to really care for my skin. But as mentioned here in the beginning of the year, my goal is to make my skin healthy and I think that it provided gentle resurfacing exfoliation and left my skin really smoother, brighter, and softer like I just had a facial
(+) Now, as with all masks and scrubs, the skin has the tendency to really brighten after but this one didn't make the pimple more red (as usually happens with scrubs). It then proves how gentle and how the patented ingredients worked to make skin really ready for anything instantly.
(+/-) I also felt tightening of the pores but I couldn't tell it minimized them.

According to the press release, SUPERMUD™ was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemist to help fight all common skin concerns for men and women. SUPERMUD™ is designed to treat blemishes, zits, breakouts, black & white heads, razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and reduces pore size within minutes. SUPERMUD™ contains GLAMGLOW’s new ACNECIDIC-6™ proprietary 6 acid AHA & BHA blend for mind-blowing fast results. BHA acids penetrate sebum oils unclogging pore congestion, which is the main cause of problem skin. AHA acids seep into the skin restoring photo damage, improving texture and helping reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation. SUPERMUD™ contains Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic, Mandelic, Azelaic and Pyruvic Acids.
SUPERMUD™ also boasts PORE-MATRIX our Activated-X Charcoal and K17-Clay that extracts 500-times it’s own mass in bacteria, sebum oils and toxins, revealing dots of Pore-Matrix™ before your eyes. BIO-LIFE-CELL-SCIENCE™ soothes skin using the complex natural occurring green life benefits. GLAMGLOW’s patent pending TEAOXI™ Technology delivers daily fresh natural eucalyptol, natural linalool and powerful flavonoids direct into the formula from the real pieces of Eucalyptus Leaf contained in the magical healing SUPERMUD™
(+) The product smells like Youth Mud as well (green tea) but this one has a more refined texture, and feels like it really gets to the pores.
|During GlamGlow Super Mud|
(+) Now the results. you can see that my before picture here improved because of my twice a week use of Youth Mud. I had better texture and less impurities - a bit brighter and healthier-looking too. But even after the Super Mud, my skin's texture became better - pores lesser, impurities lessened and brightness achieved.

Overall, despite the price of these mud treatments (I only tried Super Mud using a sample), I really love, recommend and will repurchase this magical product with mind-blowing results. Especially for busy women who want to take care of their skin and make it look healthy inside and out with ingredients that are of quality and are natural (and vegan too), I would definitely rate this 5/5.
I couldn't say anything wrong just for the sake of saying it =)
