I was so looking forward to trying Glamglow Thirstymud because I loved the original Glamglow mask – it’s one of very few that really does make a difference after using. Actually, I picked up on #bbloggers chat lastnight that love for facemasks seems to be diminishing because the results just aren’t good enough and I wonder if it’s because regular skin-care has got better so a sudden moisture infusion or whatever from a mask doesn’t have the same impact any more. Or, maybe we just have higher expectations? I hope so…all brands should be delivering at top performace, regardless of price.
So Glamglow Thirstymud actually bears no resemblence whatsoever to the original Glamglow mask. Not a speck of mud in sight! It’s more of a honey look and consistency (without the stickiness) and I didn’t feel it brought anything over and above what applying a face cream could bring in terms of hydration. My skin certainly felt softer and hydrated afterwards but there was no wow moment this time around. Glamglow Thirstymud contains hyaluronic and citric acids (known collectively at Thirstymud HQ as ‘Dewdration’ (massive eye-roll) and the sell is that the mask splits up into three hydration uses – long-term (Dewdration), medium term (Hydrapack) and short term (Green Energy – oh lord, I will never get my eyes back at this rate).
At £49.50 for 30g, it’s too expensive for the result that it delivers, in my view. Especially with recommended use 2-3 times a week – that pot won’t last long. I think if you are going through some short term hydration issues you would see a difference, especially if you leave it on for the full 20 minutes, but I’m really not sure it’s more than you’d see if you used a good skin oil.
