I had never heard of GlamGlow before, I was whisked off to an excited event where what I knew about the beauty/skincare world was all about to change!

GlamGlow has a very exciting and unique story. It started off with makeup artist using this little pot of wonder to help brighten celebrities skin in as little as 10 minuets. Or as they say on the official glam glow site:
"Designed as a 10-minute professional ‘facial in a jar’ for behind-the-scenes use in Hollywood’s Entertainment, Music, Fashion & Award industries, for immediate camera- ready glowing skin."

It helps to create a smooth and effortless base to work with helps and show off their fine makeup artistry skills as we all know a flawless base is best when working with makeup for top results.

Today I'm going to focus on the Tinglefoliate Treatement  as its a bit on the picture heavy side. You can pop on over to this link to see how i got on with the Supermud treatment. 

Side note: I am wearing xen tan and will have a review up shortly

What makes this mud mask so great is it works in 10 minuets! When i heard that my mind when straight to thinking about how amazing this would be to use just before those last minute nights out or for brides on the morning of their big day.

The results are amazing and do speak for themselves (see the end of this post for before (above is also a before), after and during). We where told at the event that that the radiant results would last up to 3 days but I find the benefits still linger for up to a week!

The big thing that comes across most face masks enthusiasts minds is that mud masks tend to dry out the skin. As the mud is sourced from the south of France the properties from this region don't dry out the skin so there is no fear of that!

So it's basically a mud mask? yes?
Well no there is one little extra special ingredient that makes this mask so wonderful it is the TEAOXI™ GREEN TEA LEAF 
"TEAOXI™ is GLAMGLOW’s proprietary continuous time-release technology, delivering daily fresh Super-Squalene, EGCG Super-Antioxidants & Polyphenols direct into the mud from the real pieces of tea leaf contained in our mask. TEAOXI™ is the ‘magic’ behind our powerful anti-aging and anti wrinkle results."

The quote from the official site is what makes the mud mask sound so wonderful! I am all about the antioxidants and it is great for under 30's skin which I find a lot of anti aging treatment is focused on those over the age of 30 who have developed fine lines and so on.

They claim that the results you will gain form using the YOUTHMUD mask are:
  • Leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing.
  • Activates moisturizing collagen synthesis.
  • Provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation.
  • Helps to leave skin smoother, brighter and softer.
  • Provides tighter skin texture and tighter pores.
  • Helps to provide a more youthful appearance.
  • Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.
  • Helps to protect against free radical damage.

At this point my inner blogger would find that one of these results did not come to pass but every box besides the last one as we can't see that one (duh) was ticket. You will seriously see these results after one use it works that fast and is what makes this little small pot so wonderful!

Now on to one of my favourite parts, the packaging. I just adore it, when I first pealed back the plastic warping, opened up the box and lifted out the glass jar which was balanced on branded cardboard I squealed a little. I adore carefully planned packaging, like this. It is however a bit of a double edged sword as my expectations go through the roof.

Now with extremely high exceptions I had to try the mud mask, as soon as...and so I did. As I twisted the jar open, a heavenly sent of strong mint greeted me. I mixed the mask as is instructed and started to apply to a clean face. The mask will start to dry creating a tingling sensation (hens the name), form this you will know YOUTHMUD TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT is working. I found that my skin tightened which helps to reduce the size of those unruly pores. Once ten minuets have passed it's time to wash off the mask with circular motions which, helps to exfoliate the skin creating an even more radiant complexion and simply pat dry to complete the 10 minute GlamGlow experience. You will be left with "Super Sexy Super Radiant Skin" as it says on the jar.

Please do excuse my naked face but I wanted to share with you just how wonderful GlamGlow is.

Don't I look so happy!

Those clumps are in fact those "real pieces of tea leaf"

Just look at the difference! It's as if a zest of life has been put back into my skin!

And one more for the road 

Before on the left, after on the right

Now onto the tricky business of the RRP, it's by no means cheap for a 15ml jar. It retails at €59.95 (Ouch I know!). The results however are amazing to justify such a price and you will get your moneys worth out of it. Currently GlamGlow do not ship internationally from the official site but I have found two Irish companies that stock GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. beautyfeatures and millies. Do keep an eye on both sites as I saw Millies was selling Youthmud for around €45.

Update: I had the wrong prices for the GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment it is €59.95 for a 50ml jar. You can purchase the 15ml jar for €30 from M&S
Do you think you will succumb to the charm of GlamGlow?  
What do think of the results?
