I have a lot of face masks.
From sheet masks to clay masks to lips, undereyes, you name it, I got it. For the most part, I don’t get too excited about this particular category of beauty (which was also the number-one searched term in Google in the beauty category and accounting for more than 40 per cent of online sales for beauty companies worldwide), but then I saw that Too Faced was coming out with a glitter mask and I died a little. A mask with glitter in it?! Where can I purchase this?!
Well, unfortunately it’s not quite out yet (the brand has released it on their site a couple times but it sells out fast), but mask mega-giant GlamGlow thankfully has released their own version.
Perhaps more exciting than the Too Faced version, the Glam Glow Glitter Mask Gravity Mud Firming Treatment is a firming mud mask with glitter in it that delivers serious skincare benefits, like firming, lifting, tightening, and toning. Did I mention it has glitter in it? 😛
Okay, so sparkliness aside, this mask is a little different from their other masks in that it’s a peel off. I have tried a number of Glam Glow masks and love them, particularly because the ones I had previously tried were clay which dried on your face and showed you all the gunk that was living in your pores. This one is different in that it’s a black mask with particles of glitter (which I honestly think don’t do anything, it’s just pretty), that dries down on your face and then after about 20 to 30 minutes once it’s completely dry, you peel it off in one swift move to reveal visibly lifted skin.
I’ve used this a number of times now (it’s so FUN!) and have adored it every time. This comes with a little brush which gives you the perfect application. Make sure you don’t apply it too thinly (for C$79 a bottle, I know you’re going to want to ration it, but trust me, the thicker it is, the easier it is to peel off), also you want to avoid your eye area and your brows and hairline since the mask could rip the hair out. This mask features the same benefits of the original Gravity Mud Firming Treatment, but also has TEAOXI complex of licorice and marshmallow leaf to help make skin’s contours more firm.
I mean it’s pretty obvious how I feel about this mask. I absolutely adore this and think it’s the greatest thing Glam Glow has ever come out with (mostly due to the fact that it has glitter in it). I also want to note that the peel off on this is pretty perfect. For the most part, I have always peeled this off perfectly, whereas with other masks, I’ve had to go in a few times to remove it all. It also gives you a fruity scent once you remove it, which is quite nice.
At C$79 a pop at Sephora, this is on the pricier side, but guys, it’s so worth it, especially if you’re a sparkly fanatic like me. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Glam Glow has it in the smaller size at the moment, however, even with those smaller sizes, it’s worth it to buy the full size since you end up with more product in the long run (50 g for $79 or 15 g for $27).
If you love doing face masks, I would highly recommend picking this up. Life is short, buy the mask :P.
