DIY GLAMGLOW Face Mask

The Original GLAMGLOW Mask

This is the mask beauty critics and users have been raving about. The GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment mask claims to be clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight skin concerns including discoloration, breakouts, black and white heads, in-grown hair, and razor bumps. The mud is said to draw out congestion and dirt while a proprietary six acid blend is claimed to dramatically brighten and soften skin. To top if off activated charcoal magnetically draws out dirt to leave skin smooth and healthy looking. Sounds great right? Wait it gets even better... the product has an average rating of 4.3 stars on Sephora, and research results claim 98% felt their skin looked renewed, 97% saw an improvement in skin clarity, and 97% felt it gently cleared their skin. Sounds like an amazing must have product, but at $69 (US) for 1.2 oz jar it's very pricey.

Now you can create your own DIY version of the GLAMGLOW Supermud mask for a fraction of the price. Fight back against discoloration, breakouts, and black heads with a homemade mask that's not as harsh on skin, and is less drying than the original product.
