Well hello & happy Sunday to you all, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
Now lets get down to business, GlamGlow is one of the most in demand skincare products at the moment and when I got full wind of the craze I ordered it straight away, I couldn't help myself.
I was expecting to be blown away by GlamGlow & I do like it, but I haven't been as impressed as I'd hoped so here's why..
Let's start off with the classic YOUTHMUD
It claims to give incredible INSTANT results - even to celebrity faces and in Hollywood film productions

 It's full of natural ingredients so it has chunks & gritty bits in it that help to exfoliate your skin. Be careful around delicate eye areas, I found this to really sting! When applied it dried so HARD my face literally felt stuck, I could barely smile! It has a very clay-like texture and smell and I also think it smells a little minty which is not bad at all, I left it on for 15 minutes and then rinsed off, the best thing about this was how clean my skin felt afterwards, squeaky clean in fact. Because it cleans so deep it's inevitable that you're going to get dirt dragged to the surface so don't be surprised if you do break out a little the day after, like any deep cleaning products it will draw the dirt out and you may get a few spots. I found that on spots I already had it really helped to dry them out which also helped to clear them quicker so that was a bonus. I'm not blown away by this because although my skin felt super clean, I didn't experience the radiance and 'glow' that I was hoping for.
Is it worth the money? If you're after a great deep clean & don't mind the higher price tag then I'd say yes, but if you just want to see if you'll glow after and are swayed by the craze, I wouldn't recommend it. Especially for sensitive skin, I'd say this is way too harsh. BUT it's not all bad..

I ordered from Zest beauty & kindly received these three samples in generous 15g bottles (considering the product I ordered was only 50g I was super pleased getting these three bottles for nothing!)
Now the absolute GEM of this whole collection I have has to be the ThirstyMud (the bright blue bottle) the instructions say to leave on OR wipe off after desired time, so obviously I left it on to try and get the best results. I have been using this every morning and night and it is gorgeous. Silky smooth and incredible smelling, it smells like a fruity, coconutty, tanning oil holiday dream & it's amazing at hydrating, I always apply extra around my eyes and my skin feels so so fresh and calm. It is a little thick and I hate thick moisturisers but if I can handle this under a full face then so can you! Or just use it as an over night treatment. I will definitely be purchasing this in full size and I'm so pleased considering I don't LOVE what I originally ordered.
I also used this in one of my YouTube videos to prep my skin for flawless foundation and it does an amazing job:
And moving on to PowerMud (green bottle) & SuperMud (white bottle)
PowerMud goes on as a clear mask, sort of like the ones you used to have as a kid and could peel off in one clean swoop! I used this three times and for me it didn't make a difference at all, it didn't do any harm but I have no real results I can tell you about, so for me, I wouldn't buy this.

And SuperMud.. I'll be honest now.. this smells like Aniseed (aka SAMBUCA) *insert violently sick face here* I could not even get this on to my skin, it's a thick, dark coloured cream and although I would have loved to given this a go, the smell for me was so bad I physically couldn't put it on my face. (so dramatic I know buy so true!) I'm the kind of girl when someone brings a tray of Sambuca shots to the table I gag on just the smell so for me this is an absolute no go - probably the one that would've had amazing results but there's no way I could try it so please let me know if it's worth being brave for!
So all in all, if I were going to recommend any, it would without a doubt be the ThirstyMud, hands down the absolute winner of these four products.
I hope that's given you some good info & you're decided on if you want to try it or not, please let me know your thoughts and reviews on these products I love reading them & don't forget to come & follow me on my Instagram: beautyscreen
Until next time,

    1. Yes you should, I'm glad I got the samples because they're pretty expensive to buy separately over here without trying them first! xx

  2. I except perfection from something so expensive. Otherwise, I could just buy something from the drugstore! Thanks for the honest review!


  3. Exactly me too! I forgot to mention I will continue to use it all up - as it was pricey! So if my results dramatically change after using it for a longer period I will definitely keep you updated! xx

  4. Thanks for the wonderful review, now I know that I need to only get Thirsty Mud - sounds exactly like something what my skin needs! :)

    1. It is really lovely & the smell is gorgeous.. definitely my favorite of the bunch and a fab moisturizer xx

  5. I've never tried this brand. Thanks for the detailed & informative review!

  6. I keep hearing so much about Glamglow and actually have a few samples that I haven't tried yet - you're right, there's so much hype over the brand that I think people buy it just to see if their skin will actually glow…..might give the samples a go first and see what I think before buying the full-size product!

    1. I know I'm a sucker for a good review and a hype! Yes definitely give the samples a try if you have them, a much cheaper way of seeing what you like! xx

  7. I am so obsessed with Glamglow! Their masks are all just incredible, and they really do work miracles xx
