The benefits of mud in skin care is evident in the long line up of mud masks from both the drug store and high end shops. As well as from the long and ever growing list of spa treatments that involve mud. But the idea of slapping some mud, or mud-based product, on your face on a daily bases was a bit of a turnoff for me. As much as I agree with the moisturizing benefits, I did truly believe that the use of mud every day would clog my pores since, well….mud is dirt, right?!
Yet all these thoughts were pushed aside after falling in love hard for the GLAMGLOW ThirstyCleanse Mud to Foam Cleanser; and AHHHHMAZING daily face cleanser that leaves my face feeling cleaner and smoother than ANYTHING I’ve ever used before. I’m serious. I was a little intimidated by the name (GLAMGLOW) and even the packaging at first. It’s bright colours and shiny stars actually led me to believe it was targeted to a completely different audience. That teaches me not to judge a book….
The cleanser smooths on dry and thick like a good mask, and I apply it as such. I use about two pumps from the bottle and cover my whole face. Then I wet just my finger tips and start massaging the cleanser in. It instantly turns into a silky cleanser that I could spend hours massaging in. It feels amazing on my face. Then I simply splash a few handfuls of water on my face to remove the cleanser and pat my face try with a face cloth. I can then skip the moisturizer…no joke! My face feels so fresh, clean, and moisturized all at the same time! I’ve put aside my Una Brennan Super Facialist Oil for the time being (although my love for that runs deep as well), and I’m spending some time with my new love, the GLAMGLOW Mud to Foam cleanser.
I’ve also sampled the ThirstyMud Hydrating Mask and I have a feeling more than my little sample sized will be needed for the future. What other GLAMGLOW products can you suggest for me?
