This is a product everyone seems to know. However, I haven't tried it until recently because I wanted to resist the hype. When I got the chance to buy it for a considerably good price in Amsterdam I caved in and here I am, writing a blogpost about how much I love this face mask. After comparing the four available versions of the mask I chose the original GlamGlow because it seemed to be the best to treat dull looking dry-combination skin.
I felt a bit like a child when I first used it because I was so excited to see the results and skeptical at the same time due to what I've heard about the "miraculous results".
The mask smells strong but it's a fresh scent so I don't mind. Anyhow, opening the jar and looking at this very yummy greyish brown mixture with little lumps of who-knows-what* kind of lowered my excitement but after spending fifty bucks on the mask I sure wanted to smear every bit of it onto my face.

The tingly feeling after applying it made me believe the mask was really doing something, not sure whether the beginning of an allergic reaction (with my skin you never know) or just what it's supposed to do. After about 8 minutes my face felt like a block of cement even though I applied a very thin layer. I removed the mask about 3 minutes later with warm water in a circular motion to enhance the exfoliation. This part can get a little messy but the whole process is totally worth it.
Let's talk about the results: My skin looked brighter, the redness of the few blemishes I had was reduced and they disappeared completely over the next 48 hours. Dull skin? No idea what that means... Even my boyfriend noticed that my skin felt extraordinarily soft and looked clear. So for me, this mask gets five out of five stars. The only problem? I want to buy all the others as well just to know whether I chose the perfect one for my skintype... aah!
If you're interested in the ingredients and the thoughts behind the GlamGlow, I'd recommend to visit their in my opinion very informative and interesting website.
