GlamGlow is a line of volcanic mud-based exfoliating masks originally created for Hollywood actors, musicians, and performers as a way to have camera-ready skin. The GlamGlow product line is now widely available to the general public at $69 for a jar that promises 17 applications or over 1,000 spot treatments.

What’s in GlamGlow?

All GlamGlow products are considered to be gentle exfoliators and cleansers that can be used on most skin types. For example, the GlamGlow Super Mud product promises to remove dirt from pores, creating the appearance of nearly pore-less, tighter skin. At the same time, GlamGlow Super Mud is designed to deliver nourishing chemical compounds to your skin. Overall, the main features of their face masks were designed to help the skin in the following ways:

  • Teaoxi – derived from eucalyptus leaves, this patent-pending technology is said to deliver a time released dose of flavonoids and eucalyptol. Flavonoids can act as antioxidants to help repair aging skin. The formulation stimulates natural collagen cells as well, which can give skin more needed firmness.
  • Acnecidic-6 – GlamGlow carries a 4.4% concentration of acnecidic-6 to clear pores and get rid of acne and remove blackheads. The acne-fighting benefits are designed primarily to deal with adult blemishes on skin as the acnecidic-6 also contains age-fighting nutrients.
  • Pore-Matrix – a charcoal-based formulation is designed to draw out toxins from the skin and clear out pores.
  • Bio life Cell Science – ingredients in the bio life cell science technology are said to rejuvenate skin and reduce the signs of aging. Some ingredients behind the technology include eucalyptus leaf to get rid of acne scars and skin imperfections, licorice root to help regulate skin and prevent skin discoloration, chamomile to alleviate skin inflammation, and ivy to help tighten skin.
  • Volcanic pumice rock – one of the main ingredients of the mask, volcanic pumice rock, is designed to provide multi-level skin exfoliation.
  • French Sea Clay – known for absorbing toxic substances from the skin, French sea clay supplements charcoal to give the skin a tingling sensation while ridding the skin of impurities and pathogens.

And our #1 recommendation in 2017 is Advanced Dermatology. Excellent. 

How to Use GlamGlow

To use GlamGlow, apply approximately one quarter-sized dollop of the mask solution onto your face, smoothing it evenly across the skin. It is recommended that you work quickly to ensure proper coverage, because the mask tends to dry fast. After the mask is applied, allow it to dry for ten to twenty minutes. If you keep the mask on for the full 20 minutes and notice that your skin is excessively dry after treatment, you can decrease the time to meet the needs of your particular skin type.

It is normal to see black dots appearing on top of the mask when it is drying. It is the effect of the charcoal and French sea clay pulling substances from your skin. You can also expect some skin tingling during this skin care treatment. You will know the mask is completely dry when it changes to a light green color and becomes hard in texture. To remove the mask, it is recommended that you rinse it off with warm water, scrubbing lightly with your fingertips in a circular motion to completely exfoliate your skin.

Each mask can be used for all skin types, but if you have dry skin, you should forego any scrubbing when you wash off GlamGlow, and you may require extra moisturizing after use. GlamGlow does make skin more susceptible to sunburn so users should always wear a strong sun block, especially the day after treatment. It is recommended that you use GlamGlow one to two times a week for optimal effects. As with any face exfoliator, using this product more often may cause excessively dry skin and skin damage.

    I have been purchasing the glam glow products for a few almost a year AND WHOA!!!!!!!!!!! i have NOT been able to find not one product out – including the Pro-Active (which broke my skin out worst) that has worked magnificently as this!!!!! In just two applications all of the break out and dis-coloration almost disappears overnight. My skin is more vibrant – clear and healthy looking. Normally I am a serious bargain shopper on everything & i do mean everything BUT with glam glow in my opinion it’s WORTH EVERY CENT!!!!!

    Every time I try to go without this product my skin breaks out but as soon as i go right back to it MAGICALLY!!!!!!! my skin is clear within a weeks time. I will continue with this product!!!!!!!!!

    I purchased the pore detoxifying mask and used it while I was in the midst of the worst breakout I’ve ever experienced woke up the next morning to visibly tighter and firmer skin and a huge huge improvement in blackheads, active pimples, and even my cystic bumps as well. This was a miracle for me and I will definitely be repurchasing. My skin is oily in the t zone and sensitive and dry in the cheek are .

    $60 for GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment! Whoa. I have read the ingredient list and this product is not worth it. I would much rather go to an organic farm and pick up mud with my own hands for free. If I am lucky I will avoid any fertilizers :). This product is not certified organic and as far as I can see some from a lab. Not sure what all the fuss is about but I agree that the product is overpriced. Who pays $60 for mud?

    I bought Glamglow Super Mud last month as a friend has been raving about it. I have used it twice even though you are suppose to use it once per week. I found it to be a good product but definitely not worth the price they are charging for this as it was comparable to cheaper products. I probably wont tell my friend this as she is a big fan and would think I did not appreciate her suggestion.

    The only GlamGlow product I like is GlamGlow BRIGHTMUD Eye Treatment. This product helps with dark circles, puffiness and tired eyes. You only need to leave it on for a few minutes and it extracts all the toxins that build up. I have found that it does reduce puffiness by not dark circles. I’ve tried all the other GlamGlow masks and only like this one.
