Get to Know GLAMGLOW: A b-glowing Review

Who do the Hollywood elite turn to when their complexions are off-kilter? GLAMGLOW®—the skincare line leading ladies and A-listers swear by. Developed exclusively for backstage and professional use, GLAMGLOW®' is world-famous for their fast-acting, innovative mud treatments. Their peel-off masks are the pre-red carpet ritual of stars like Natalie Portland, Mila Kunis, and Angelina Jolie, who all rave about their ability to revitalize and illuminate their skin. Even if you’re not bumping shoulders with Brad Pitt, you'll love giving your skin the star treatment with GLAMGLOW®’s ultra-luxe, sensorial skincare. From top picks to application tips, we’ve got the scoop on Hollywood’s favorite brand. Read on for our GLAMGLOW® review:


GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment

The highlights: - #1 best-seller -

Key ingredient: Activated-X charcoal - Offers results in just one use - Great for congested, blemish-prone, and oily skin


GLAMGLOW Supermud Mask jar open

Why we love it: Sorry Freddie Mercury, but having mud on your on your face is not a big disgrace—it’s actually the quickest way to clear up skincare woes like breakouts, razor burn and ingrown hairs. (Well, as long as the “mud” in question is GLAMGLOW’s Supermud Clearing Treatment!) Starring Activated Charcoal X, this purifying mask is like a vacuum for pores, purging them of impurities and leaving your complexion clean, bright, and radiant-looking. A godsend for anyone with oily, acne-prone skin, this #1 best-seller will have you seeing mud in a whole new light.

How to apply: Smooth a thin layer over clean, dry skin, avoiding the mouth and eye area. Leave on for 5 - 20 minutes, then remove with warm water.



GLAMGLOW Flashmud Brightening Treatment

Key ingredient: White Birch Leaf - Offers three levels of exfoliation - Creates bright, glowing, luminous skin - Combats dullness, sun + age spots, and uneven skin tone


Glamglow Flashmud Mask Jar Open

Why we love it: When dark spots, dullness, and uneven skin rear their ugly heads, look on the bright side with this illuminating mask. It’s packed with powerhouse ingredients like salicylic acid, lactic acid, and vitamin C to give you lighter, brighter more luminous-looking skin. The real star of the ingredient show is white birch leaf, however—a glow-inducing active that dramatically fades dark spots and promotes a balanced, even complexion. Like the name implies, this mask will get you glowing in a flash!

How to apply: Apply to dry, clean skin and massage in circular motions for improved ingredient absorption. As it gets to work, you'll notice the color change from creamy white to semi-translucent, signaling that your skin has absorbed the nourishing ingredients. After 20 minutes, rinse away with water.



GLAMGLOW #Glittermask Gravitymud Firming Treatment

The highlights: Insta sensation! Great for selfies.

Key ingredient: TEAOXI Marshmallow + Licorice Leaf - Instantly leaves skin feeling firm, toned, and lifted - Combats fine lines and wrinkles


Glamglow Glitter Mask Jar Open

Why we love it: This sparkly mask is the most selfie-worthy skin treatment ever, hands down, but it’s way more than just Instagram bait. It has the same lifting, toning, and firming formula as the OG GRAVITYMUD™, with the addition of glitter—i.e., it’s effective, but also super fun to use. Beyond that, it’s brimming with ingredients to refine and firm skin. Marine algae, Icelandic kelp, and glacial clay train skin to be more resilient, while natural licorice and marshmallow leaf extract tone and firm skin’s contours for a more defined look.

How to apply: Paint a generous, even layer all over your face with the included brush. Aim for a Goldilocks amount—too thick a layer, and the mask won’t dry correctly. Too thin, and you won’t be able to peel it off in a single ( and very gratifying) sheet. Leave on for 20-30 minutes until dry, then gently peel off from edges. Be sure to rinse off any excess with warm water.

Note: you really want to avoid applying too close to your eyebrows and hairline with this one.



GLAMGLOW Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment

The highlights: Instant hydration.

Key ingredient: Hyaluronic acid - Smoothes, replenishes, calms, and energizes the skin - Offers short and long-term results - Combats dryness, dullness, and redness.


Glamglow Thirstymud Mask

Why we love it: When our skin is feeling particularly parched, we reach for this powerfully hydrating mask. Like a tall, cold glass of water, it provides immediate hydration, soothing and locking in moisture for a radiant and plump look. Packed with potent, energizing actives like hyaluronic acid, raw honey, and ginger root, it transform skin in as little as 20 minutes. We love the cool, tingly sensation, too—so refreshing!

How to apply: Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin. You can apply to the face, neck, or chest as desired. Leave on for 10 to 20 minutes, then wipe excess away with tissue. (You can rinse off if preferred.) You can also leave the mask on overnight to allow maximum moisture penetration.



GLAMGLOW Dreamduo Overnight Transforming Treatment

Key ingredient: Green coffee and green tea leaf - Helps you wake up to plump, hydrated skin.
Step 1 (pearl side): melt-in serum with antioxidants and essential vitamins
Step 2 (grey side): moisture boost with hyaluronic acid to recharge your skin’s glow - Combats dryness and dullness.

Glamglow Dream Duo Mask Jar Open

Why we love it: Don’t lose while you snooze—take advantage of your skin's nighttime restorative process, instead! This two-step system works while you sleep, helping you wake up to firm, hydrated, makeup-ready skin each and every morning. Step one is the DREAMSERUM, which supercharges your skin with a blend of antioxidants, vitamins, and GLAMGLOW’s special green coffee and tea leaf complex. Step two is DREAMSEAL—a hydrating lotion that seals everything in and offers an extra boost of hyaluronic acid. This duo is genuine midnight magic for your skin, giving you a sexy, plump complexion after just one sleep. Bet you can’t wait to hit the sheets!

How to apply: Apply a thin, even layer of DREAMSERUM on clean, dry skin before bed. Let absorb for about 30 seconds, then follow with DREAMSEAL. Sleep tight!
