Remember when I told you about my stupid skin? And the fact that this winter it seemed to me that it was really putting an effort to annoy me? Well, in the battle of me vs my face I’ve found the perfect ally to get me a sure victory! I’m talking about Glam Glow’s Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment. Because when times get desperate, you gotta call in the big boys! I’ve always been keeping steer of intensive hydrating masks as I always used to get pimples from them. But this year, my skin was horribly flaky, as much so that I couldn’t even put on a tinted moisturiser to even out my freckles- yes, most of this winter’s selfies on Instagram are without any sort of foundation or tinted moisturiser.
One night I was desperate so I started looking for a solution in my samples box (yes, I have such a thing) and found three samples of this self-proclaimed miracle worker. I decided to give it a try, thinking what the hell, I can deal with any type of pimples, but I can’t deal with flaky skin anymore. At first, I discovered that you don’t really need to put a lot of product on, therefore, a sample lasted me for about two applications. It says on the package and online that you can sleep with it on, so being desperate, I did that. The next morning, when I woke up, aside from the fact that a little bit of product smeared on my pillow (I tend to sleep on my left side), my skin was definitely in a better condition and there seemed to be no zits in sight. I did this every night for about one week (until I ran out of samples), and I have to tell you, I was truly amazed at how good my skin looked and felt. I’d even go and say that a few of my superficial wrinkles looked better (and by that I mean they were no longer noticeable), however, as it’s not an anti-wrinkle treatment, it had no effect on all the others.
I’m not really into trying to bore you with any info you can find on the official site. Just give this link a click and let’s move along.
After that week of nightly use, as I said there were no flakes and no pimples anywhere on my face and I was extremely happy about that. So I decided I needed to incorporate this mask in my beauty routine asap, therefore I bought it full-sized from SEPHORA (you can also find there a travel-sized version). For the small quantity you get in the full-sized version, I’d say it’s on the pricey side, but since you don’t need to apply a lot of product, it will last you a long time.
On week two, I slept with it on every other night and even though the temp outside was freezing my skin kept its great appearance. Nowadays I use it once per week, and I’ve kinda mastered the art of sleeping on my back when I have it on. This product is a great one to try out, no matter what you skin type is. Apparently when it comes to Glam Glow products you can really trust all the positive reviews you see o line, unlike other products I’ve tried (talking from my own experience).
Ooooooo, I forgot to tell you about the smell (as you can see the texture from the photos)! It smells divine… Coconuts on the beach! It’s a treat especially after a hard day at work.
