GlamGLOW or GlamNO? The Supermud Clearing Mask!

GlamGLOW or GlamNO? The Supermud Clearing Mask!

Hey everyone!

Man have I been having some troubles with my skin recently, if you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know my health has taken a really hard hit over the past year. My last post on it is here. All I can assume is that because of all the different medication I’ve continually been trialling, it’s hugely taken a toll on my skin. All around my jawline I have come up in quite bad spots. I’m not too sure whether it would constitute as acne but either way, it’s really started to get me down and knock my confidence as I’m someone who rarely ever got them at all before.

Glamglow is a brand I’ve heard mostly great things about and for the price tag, I thought surely there must be something worth raving about if people are dishing out that money over and over again. After talking to a lovely lady who used to work for them on twitter about my skincare needs, I was recommended the Supermud mask as it’s a spot clearing one. At £42 a pop for a full sized pot, I was a bit hesitant.

I waited it out until the January sales and luckily managed to bag a Supermud giftset for £28 which contained the full size Supermud mask aswell as three miniatures of the Thirstymud, Youthmud and Gravitymud which you’ll be seeing my thoughts on in my new upcoming “Mini’s Of The Month” feature – (previously Samples Of The Month).

So I decided to trial this mask for 3 weeks before putting this post up. The directions are to use it 2-3 times per week so I went for 3 times to hopefully get the best results, as fast as possible. Also, sorry in advance for the pictures of my horrid skin – I wanted to show an accurate progression of how this has worked for me!

Before use:

After 1 Week / 3 Uses:

After 2 Weeks / 6 Uses:

After 3 Weeks / 9 Uses:

Overall the benefits I’ve noticed from this Glamglow mask really aren’t that great. Admittedly some spots seem to be clearing quicker than they normally would and for around a day after applying the mask, their redness and prominence is noticeably not so bad but it doesn’t seem to last unfortunately. After the first week you can see my skin did start to clear a little but it seemed to get worse again after that. I also haven’t found that it does anything to prevent new spots from appearing either. I really had my hopes set on this mask that it might really help my skin as a few other things I’ve tried have failed but no such luck.

Alongside this mask I’ve been using The Body Shop‘s Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Solution and Vitamin E Moisture Cream! If I find some sort of saviour for my skin, I’ll be sure to report back on here. Or if you have any recommendations, send them my way! Realistically from my progress pictures, it doesn’t look like it’s made that much of a difference, does it?

Have you tried any Glamglow products? What has been your verdict on them?

’Til Next Time,

    I have to say i also find that it is over rated. There are products at a better cost which do a better job.

      Yeah I definitely agree, it’s a real shame!

    Thanks for sharing Alice. I’ve also been using the mud mask from Glam glow!

    I found that when i first used it (I was gifted a sample at a blogging event) I saw great results which lead me to purchase a full sized pot. Since i’ve been using my own one I havent actually seen that much different or improvement in my skin. It’s a shame because i was sure this would be the mask that would work miracles! especially after my first use.

      Oh that’s such a shame 🙁 Yeah you can see in my pictures there was quite an improvement after the first week and then it just kind of went downhill again! I’m gutted as I had my heart set on this working! X

  3. 26th January 2018 / 9:12 pm

    I’ve not heard of them before, but can imagine being disappointed if I’d spent that much money! I’ll let you know if I find any saviours as I’m in the same boat skin wise!

    I’ve been wanting to try this for ages, but couldn’t justify paying that much for a mask even though it has all the hype! It’s a shame it didn’t work for you, and I’m not sure if I’d be purchasing this as I have heard some mixed reviews on it! Great review! ?

    • blacktulipbeauty
      6th February 2018 / 5:07 pm

      Yeah it definitely seems like a love/hate product, some people really swear by it! It’s a real shame as I was hoping it’d work for me! Thank you 🙂 X

    Ahh that’s a shame, I had high hopes for this. Maybe I’ll hold off for a while

      It’s definitely worth trying a miniature before purchasing a huge pot to see if it works first ! X

  6. 27th January 2018 / 10:34 am

    Ah man that’s a shame it didn’t give you the results you’re after. I found the one in the black tube quite good so hopefully they work better for you

    • blacktulipbeauty

      Ahh really?! I tried the Thirstymud one today and didn’t find it did much for me either which is a shame! X

  7. 27th January 2018 / 1:59 pm

    It’s such a shame it didn’t work properly, for that price it should have cleared your skin in no time! Have you tried any homemade masks and remedies? You can find loads of ideas online, especially Pinterest, and most of the time they’re cheap to make yourself and if it doesn’t work at least you’re not spending a ridiculous amount of money. I don’t think I could recommend anything though, sorry! Hope it clears up soon.

      I know it’s a bit of a joke! I haven’t yet no but I’ve really wanted to start making my own stuff with natural ingredients so I’ll give it a go 🙂 X

  8. 27th January 2018 / 8:56 pm

    I’ve always wanted to try a Glam Glow mask, but I’m not a mask user at all so I feel as if it would be a waste because they are soo expensive! It’s a shame this mask didn’t work for you – good job you managed to get it in the sale!!xo

      Yeah they are very pricey, I was expecting it to work wonders for that price! They seem to work brilliantly for some people though I think it’s really hit or miss! X

  9. 27th January 2018 / 9:35 pm

    I’ve tried glam glow before but I agree I haven’t really seen it work amazingly for my skin. I just can’t seem to justify the price either

      6th February 2018 / 5:11 pm

      It’s a real shame as I was expecting so much more! X

  10. 28th January 2018 / 4:13 pm

    I’ve wanted to try GlamGlow products for a while after hearing so many people raving about them; it’s definitely made me hesistant about buying a full size product I think I’ll look more into the mini’s to try first. I know developing a skincare issue can really affect your confidence when it’s something you’ve never really suffered with before; a few years ago I had a bad breakout of psoriasis which really knocked my confidence, having never suffered with it before and it seems to have gone now too?! Anyway I just wanted to say you’re stunning and you shouldn’t let this affect your confidence or get you down.

      Yeah the minis are definitely the best idea, I wouldn’t have paid full price for a big one! Yeah it can really affect you, I didn’t even have it like this as a teen so it’s a bit disheartening having it at this age! Thank you 🙂 X

  11. 28th January 2018 / 4:25 pm

    It’s a shame that this didn’t meet your expectations! I always thought it’d be amazing and give everyone results they wanted, might not splurge on this then x

    • blacktulipbeauty
      6th February 2018 / 5:17 pm

      Yeah me too 🙁 it’s a real shame, I’d get the little trial sizes if anything x

  12. 28th January 2018 / 4:56 pm

    I’ve never heard of this product or used it, so I was intrigued by your post. So sorry you didn’t really see improvements! Also- thanks so much for being vulnerable enough to show your skin and the process- that can be hard sometimes. But that shows that you are real and genuine and that goes further. I wish you look in your health journey and in clearing up your skin.

    • blacktulipbeauty

      It has some really good and really bad reviews so it seems to be a hit or miss product! Thank you, I feel like to really give an honest post I needed to show my skins progress! Thank you 🙂 X

  13. 28th January 2018 / 5:09 pm

    I often find the products with the high price tag don’t seem to live up to the hype I swear by the tea tree and seaweed ranges from the body shop to tackle my spots

    • blacktulipbeauty
      6th February 2018 / 5:15 pm

      It’s odd isn’t it, it’s such a shame! I use the seaweed face wash and the tea tree anti imperfection solution but these just don’t seem to be budging at the moment x

  14. 28th January 2018 / 9:49 pm

    I’m sorry that this didn’t work for you! I’ve just started using the bodyshop skincare range and I’m loving it – maybe ask in store and see if they can help?x

      I used to work there so I know literally all of their products like the back of my hand haha! I use quite a lot of their stuff already and I was using their tea tree and vitamin E alongside this mask anyway ! X

    • blacktulipbeauty
      6th February 2018 / 5:13 pm

      I gave their Thirstymud one a try today and it didn’t seem to do a thing to my skin either, I’m really starting to regret buying them! Haha x

  15. 30th January 2018 / 11:11 am

    There is a really slight difference but definitely not the type of difference you’d want from something priced that ridiculously high! That’s extortionate for a face mask. I actually really love the Superdrug own skincare, it’s really helped to clear my skin up a lot. The Body Shop is a really good shout as well! And both are way more affordable which is a massive plus x

      I know right!? I was expecting miracles haha. I think I might stick to it too tbh it’s such a good price for such lovely products! I always use The Body Shop usually, I was using their stuff alongside this! X

  16. 11th February 2018 / 8:00 pm

    This is such an interesting post! Ive always wondered about glam glow so it was good to get your opinion and photos! Sorry your skin has flared up, and I hope it improves soon lovely! thanks for such a great post

    It’s such a shame that this didn’t work for you! I’ve tried almost all of the GlamGLOW masks and I think most of them are worth the price. I use the Supermud because of blackheads and it really helps with those! I’d recommend the Lush spot treatment. You can apply it as many times a day as you like and it has so many incredible ingredients. Usually my spots disappear in a few days when I use it 🙂 x

      Really!? I really just don’t seem to get on with them at all it’s such a shame! I’ve tried that too and it doesn’t work for my skin, maybe I’m just not meant to be helped, haha! x
