A good friend of mine passed on a brilliant beauty secret yesterday- GlamGlow Super-Mud. Post fashion week, my skin was looking bad. When I say "bad," I want you to picture a face that looks like a grape approaching raisin status. Yes, folks. I'm a mess and in need of serious recovery. Never underestimate the effect of fashion week on one's complexion. Anyway, I digress.
Here I am sitting, drinking a glass of wine, watching my skin get more dehydrated by the minute and my friend pulls out a recovery present. I had mentioned earlier on the phone that I was not doing so well on feeling very face forward with what I had going on. To make a long story short, she dipped into her mag's beauty closet and brought me Glamglow as a method of recovery.
My orders were to go home, get back onto the track of drinking 2 litres of water as soon as I could and to give myself a weekly Glamglow Super-mud facial. I was told this was basically the "second coming" when it comes to beauty products and skin recovery.
So I went home and put the mask on. It's sort of like green mud, but it glides on easily and requires less product than you'd think to cover your entire face. About two minutes later, the green mud started to harden and I started to see dark green spots appear on my face. I freaked, immediately and picked up my phone to call my friend. I wanted to make sure I wasn't having some strange reaction. She nearly laughed me off the phone and told me that the mask was actually showing me it was working. Basically the Glamglow Super-Mud purges your skin of any nasty build up and shows you where it's pulling out the problems. In short, it not only gets rid of all the bad stuff, it shows you where the bad stuff is building. For me, this was like a problem chart. Now I know where I need to be paying more attention with the cleanser and exfoliant.
Moving forward, I'm using this mask not only to help stimulate my skin's synthesis of elastin and collagen, but also to show me if my skin is moving forward or backwards with problems. If the mask continues to look as bad as it did last night, with more imperfections showing than I'd like to share (hence the reason there are no pictures of me in the mask here), I'm heading straight down to a dermatologist come Christmas.
At the end of the day, this is all just to say that we highly recommend this product as a must have for those of you that are looking after your skin these days. If you're in the UK, you can get it from Cult Beauty for £44.99 or if you're in the US, it's available from Sephora for $69. Worth every single penny, trust me! I'll be buying more when the time comes.
