Glamglow ThirstyMud Review
To summarise the past month in a few words - we found a flat & moved. Yippee! I am now living in the centre of Manchester with my boyfriend and I couldn't be happier. Well, I will be when we have internet *hopefully* next week - but until then, BT hotspots will suffice (even if it does feel like i'm using a dial up connection). We moved in on the 10th and we're finally settled and slowly beginning to fill our new home with little touches - roll on payday on Tuesday!
This is the first time I've properly sat at my laptop since we moved and of course the first thing I wanted to do was blog! I'll do separate posts with catch-ups and home hauls, today I'm reviewing the ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment Masque* by Glamglow.
I've always wanted to treat myself to a Glamglow product. I first tried the brand out after attending an event a last year, as I had a free sample of their Supermud in my goody bag. I didn't expect much as I hadn't heard of them before - but WOW. The mask literally sucked out all the yuck from my pores and my skin looked so clear (definitely one for the Christmas list).
After reading a couple of reviews, I was super excited when ThirstyMud arrived on my doorstep. It comes packaged beautifully, in a round turquoise box with silver trim. The jar inside, although smaller than expected had a luxurious high end feel.
The product claims to hydrate, moisturise, restore, replenish and calm the skin, and is designed for both men and women. Multiple uses give the product a great selling point, allowing you to wear as a quick 10 minute mask, an overnight mask, or before a flight for extra hydration when you're up in the air.
The product is made with coconut oil to condition skin (also the more prominent smell which is delicious!), orange blossom honey to brighten skin and ginger root to detoxify. There are no parabens, sulfates or phthalates in the ingredients either making the product an even more tempting splurge.
I've tested this as both a 10 minute mask and over night, (unfortunately I haven't taken any flights recently to comment on that aspect) but this product is amazing. Although not as impressive as the Supermud on first use (Is it gross I enjoy watching it sucking out the dirt?) I cannot recommend this product enough. I noticed a great difference in the appearance and feel of my skin after a couple of uses. The product is quite pricey however, so I tend to use this as a weekly treat so I don't use it all up so soon, as opposed to the recommended 2-3 times a week.
(I did try to photograph this on the face but as the product is clear it just looked like a photo of my normal face, but without make up. Hence the finger shot!)
The product retails at £49.99 and can be found here.
