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!

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?
