The Beauty Breakdown: GlamGlow

I am a huge skincare buff and I am constantly searching for that glamorous spa facial feeling at home. I’ve tried a lot of products and every once in a while you find one that makes your skin feel born again. GlamGlow is that product. I stumbled upon this special mask while perusing the internet (probably Pinterest) and since I’ve been on the mad search for a new facial mask, I was game to try it. Pretty motivated, I wasted no time heading down to Sephora and when I asked for GlamGlow, the sales associate nearly exploded with excitement! She had nothing but rave reviews and there were only two left on the shelf. I took this as a good sign. I apply it to restaurants, too: the less empty tables, the better the restaurant. I figured if a huge retailer like Sephora only had two left, I was in luck.

And I was! I rushed home, washed my face, and applied the mask. Within minutes I could see it drying and then I waited. Waited for something to happen…naturally, I got distracted watching the Real Housewives of Crazytown and when I checked the mirror (about an hour later), I was surprised at what I saw. The mask dried into a light green gray and the areas where the mask purged impurities were a bit darker. It sounds gross but I thought it was pretty cool because these were results I could see! Once I washed my face and moisturized, I examined my skin again. It was soft and yes, glowy, and didn’t feel dry (before the moisturizer) the way most masks leave your skin. My pores also looked much smaller and overall, my skin looked much smoother.

Since my first use, (over a week ago) I’ve been using GlamGlow as a spot treatment and it definitely does the trick! The healing time is considerably reduced for any imperfections that might have popped up and it’s gentle enough to wear overnight.

The only downside is the price. At $69, it’s a luxury but such a small amount goes a long way and I believe that your face deserves the very best. Having clear, healthy skin is integral to any makeup look. It all begins with beauty basics.
