[Beauty] GlamGlow Youthmud™ & Supermud™ Review

I'm a person who don't really like mud masks because I think that it's very troublesome compared to using sheet masks. Some mud masks that I used before are quite difficult to be applied or removed and it annoys me very much!

Even when the first time people mentioned about how awesome this GlamGlow mud mask to me, I'm not that impressed because I never had a fun experience in using any mud mask. But I still felt that I should give it a try since it was the current most trending and famous facial mask.


In case some of you don't know, GlamGlow is the Award-Winning, Hydrating, Anti-Aging and Exfoliant Treatments for super sexy super radiant skin in Hollywood, California. In short, it was only used by Hollywood Movie Actors and Actresses.

GLAMGLOW was originally designed for exclusive professional backstage use in Hollywood. In 2011, GLAMGLOW became available to consumers worldwide and is now one of the hottest brands in skincare. Known for fast-acting and innovative mud treatments, their patent-pending formulas combine real pieces of leaf with high-end technology to deliver instant, visible results.

I was given 2 samples of 2 different mask for review - the YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT and SUPERMUD™ CLEARING TREATMENT.

GLAMGLOW Youthmud™ Tinglexfoliate Treatment

A 10-minute professional-quality mud mask for men and women.

This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It works with the body's natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils. 

In case you don't know and you wanna see how the full size looks like, here is it:

Close up look of the sample size bottle.
The fonts are smudging when I first received I and I bet it's gonna become a plain black bottle soon.
Maybe this is the thing that they should improve - get a better quality printing of the bottle.

The direction is the same as how you normally apply mask -
apply a thin layer, massage with water after 10 minutes and rinse thoroughly. But if you're a beginner, keep reading as I will show some images on how I apply it!

The name of the mask is "Tinglexfoliate" so you must expect the tingling feel on your skin when you're applying it, as mentioned on the bottle.

So I did a test on my hand before I try it on my face. It's better to do so on every beauty products as you won't know any ingredients in the product that is sensitive to your skin.

As you can tell, it's in a colour named "Celadon" (I searched it from google), mainly grey but with some green in it.

The colour changes to lighter after it's dry.

As you can tell, after it dries up, it's tight and hard on the skin.

Close up look of the texture. Crocodile skin feel?

Massage skin with water after 10 minutes, and it turns back into a darker colour condition.

The main purpose is to exfoliate so you will feel it turns into a super soft and fine sand feel while massaging.

No doubt in the smooth skin because it really feels that smooth after rinsing!

My hand is so smooth after washing it away, even after rinsing with water, there's no water droplets on the part which was applied with Glam Glow (black), while the part around which did not applied contains has water droplets because it's not that smooth! I can really see the difference after using the mask, just on my hand! Didn't manage to take picture to show clearly but it happens to me!

Since it has no irritation or sensitive to my skin, let's how it works on my face now! Couldn't tell you how excited I felt while I was going to try it on my face!

So I collage all the images cause I made it easy for you to read, and it's too long to show all one by one. Just click the image below to have a larger size view :D

Direction: Expect a Tingle-tastic Tightening Effect in 10 minutes or less. Remove Mask with Water in Circular Motions to Exfoliate.

Don't forget that after doing mask, followed by your daily skincare routine! It's the moment where your face can absorb the most after exfoliating!

My thoughts

It does feel tingle (刺刺的) within the 10 minutes but it's not that hurt and irritating for me. It disappeared after a while when the mud dried out. If you're never comfortable with any burning or tingling sensation on your face, never go for this product.

Love the baby skin feel of smoothness so much after washing it! I can't stop touching it even I know that touching my face is not good. The thing that surprised me the most is I still can feel the smooth and softness after waking up in the morning! And yes, it's even after using the mask for a few times!

My favourite part of using this product is the exfoliating part before rinsing off! It feels like scrubbing soft sands on my skin and it feels very comfortable! The baby skin feel is definitely came from the exfoliating part! But do note that you have to be gentle while scrubbing, else you will feel different.

Beside's, it's easy to be removed! I'll definitely purchase the full size of this mask after I'd finished all of my current mud masks!

The only thing that irritates me is, due to I'm squeezing the mud mask out from the bottle, it has this black stuffs came out and makes my application a mess:

It mostly came in this hard, long and thin shape, some are softer but still... annoying?
I think that it will be lesser if I'm using the full size jar one because you have to 'dig' the mask yourself.

Close up look. (Hope I didn't scared the hell out of you)
As you can tell there are some solid ingredient that I felt it's annoying on my skin. 

I didn't remove them from my skin is because I expect to get a more effective result by directly apply the solid ingredient on my skin. Does this make sense? 

Overall, this is the first mud mask that I fall in love with it so much, so deep!

Now let's move on to the next mask!

GLAMGLOW Supermud™ Clearing Treatment

A scientifically advanced SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment to target, prevent, and heal problem skin.

This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin. It works to magnetically draw out dirt and pores with Activated-X Charcoal, leaving skin smooth and healthy-looking. 

The full size product look. I really love how classy it looks like!

Close up look of the sample size bottle. Luckily this bottle's font never smudge away.

It's a little bit different from the YouthMud as it's doesn't require to exfoliate,
and the period is 5-20 minutes instead of 10.

Again, let's have a look on my hand first!

Obviously, it's a more creamy type and the colour is directly a Grey, more like a normal mud mask.

It will also turns into a lighter colour and tighten the skin after it dries up,
and you also can see that there are also some solid ingredients.

Rinse it away with water. I normally will also massage it before rinse all away.

And of course you can't really see the difference in this image because you have to feel it yourself on your skin!

Now let's get back to my bare face.

Direction: Apply a THIN Layer to Clean Skin. Leave on for 5-20 minutes. Remove with water.

Yup, only a thin layer needed. So I can actually use that small bottle for more than 3 times.

Close up look after applying for 15 minutes. Dinosaur skin?

My thoughts

I guess I have more opinion on using the YouthMud compared to this Supermud as this, for me, is quite just a normal mud mask for me, except that it's very easy to be removed! Besides, I don't really like this mask's smell. But it does work on cleansing my skin thoroughly, like pulling out any residues from my pores, like how other mud mask does.

So I hope you enjoyed reading my review on this highly raved mud mask which is also my current favourite and I can't wait to get it in full sized! It makes me gonna be more hard work on finishing my current mask so that I can buy it soon!

Big fat thanks to The Butterfly Project Community for giving me this super awesome opportunity to try this awesome product, even it's just a sample size and I never regret to give it a try!
