GlamGlow YouthMud TingleExfoliate Treatment (Full Size £36.37)
You may remember seeing this in my February You Beauty Discovery Box. It didn't take very long for me to try it out and I thought I would share my thoughts on it. This product has certainly has it's fair share of attention throughout social media and such, so this post is my opinion on whether it's hype is deserved or not. The mask is a mixture between a clay mask and a microdermabrasion scrub. The mask contains bits of green tea leaf which to put it bluntly, annoyed me. I found huge chunks of stems in the mask and had to wash them down the sink as they wouldn't stick to my face. Before I used the mask, Asma (http://chocoholic-hijabi.blogspot.co.uk) tweeted that it made her skin tingle so much that she had to remove the mask within a few minutes of applying it because of the extreme tingling sensation it gave her. Fortunately for me, I left the mask on comfortably for around ten or fifteen minutes and didn't experience any discomfort or redness from the tingling sensation (which wasn't overbearing). When I removed the mask I did notice that my face felt firmer, more toned and my pores were less noticeable. However the mask didn't do anything to the dry patches of skin that I had on my face prior to applying the mask, so I was slightly let down that it didn't make any difference to the dry skin. The mask overall is okay but for me I couldn't justify spending that amount of money on a mask which doesn't perform any differently to cheaper ones I've tried. For me this product isn't worth the hype and I'd advise anyone who wants to still try it to try a sample first before splashing out on the full size tub.
