We’re always on the hunt for the perfect skincare products and, while it’s easy to try the latest buzzworthy product on the market, sometimes it’s totally worth going back and giving some cult faves a second glance. With that in mind, our beauty panel is giving the GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment a run for its money. Available at Sephora and developed with a blend of cleansing, clearing acids, this treatment will gently remove impurities leaving skin looking and feeling radiant and smooth. Don’t believe us?

As much as I love clay and mud masks, I often avoid doing them at home because products I’ve used in the past have created a huge mess when applying and/or removing them. However, I was very intrigued by the GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing treatment because 1. The name GLAMGLOW is amazing, and 2. I liked that this deep dark charcoal mud comes in a cream form that’s quick and easy to apply. With the option to leave it on for anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, I slathered this on my face before hopping in the shower and washed it off afterwards once the mask had dried and gone from black to a light green colour. I found this to be an easy way to know when to wash it off, and I was so glad to find that the mask was super easy to remove and didn’t destroy my bathroom sink. Although there was a strong tingling sensation when I first applied the mask, it subsided as the mask dried and my skin was left feeling super clean, refreshed and moisturized after taking it off. This is definitely a mask I’ll happily apply on a weekly basis, I love it!

As someone who has really dry skin, I generally can’t use mud masks as it makes my face even drier, but the GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment didn’t do that at all! It was really calming and soothing on my skin, cleaned out my pores and also left my skin moisturized. I also noticed that it made my pores look smaller too! All-around a win. Go easy on the eye area though—it can sting a little if you get too close!

I was so excited to try GLAMGLOW’s Supermud Clearing Treatment as I’ve been a fan of the brand’s Thirstymud since the beginning of time. Luckily for you, the readers, I had two big pimples while testing this product. So, I can tell you firsthand if it cleared those suckers up like it was supposed to… or not. When you first apply the product you immediately feel a cooling sensation, which is really nice on a breakout (because my skin has felt like a hot volcano about to burst for the past three days). The almost-black mixture turns grey on your skin as it dries. The instructions said to leave for on for five to 20 minutes. And because I wanted it to really work I kept it on for the full 2-0. I removed the mask with a warm wet towel and within moments noticed the inflammation where my breakout was had greatly reduced. In fact, it seemed like it was already starting to fade. This was a huge shock as I am used to seeing the effects of a product a day or two after using it, not immediately. So major points to GLAMGLOW. I’ll be using this product as my go-to emergency spot treatment going forward!

GLAMGLOW has been a staple in my skincare routine for the past few years. When I was in university I would occasionally get breakouts, I looked for some topical products to help clear my skin. As soon as I found GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment I was able to stop looking for good. This is a product that I’ve used consistently enough to write a 100 per cent favourable review of it! I have normal skin but even good skin can see bad days, and anytime this happens I put a thin layer of the mask on for 10 to 20 minutes. You can either apply to your whole face or use it as a spot treatment. The results are fairly instant (you can see the mask literally PULLING debris from your pores) and within 24 hours my skin looks clearer and renewed. The whole process is super satisfying! I’ve tried a couple of the other masks in the line and I’ve been equally impressed—there’s something for everyone.

The thing you need to know about me: I love masking. Even though I can’t be trusted to wash my makeup off before bed every night, even if I forget to eat breakfast, I will never skip my weekly mask date with myself—and I always love trying something new. Even though the GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment has been on the market for some time and is a cult favourite among the beauty diehards, I hadn’t tried it until recently, but gave it my full weekly ritualistic attention. I know my skin can run sensitive and dry, so I applied it to my problem areas—nose and chin as of late—and let it work its magic. First impressions: the scent was so lovely and immediately after I washed it off (a little earlier than the recommended minimum 10 minutes), I already noticed that my skin was brighter and softer—how’s that for instant gratification?
