GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment is one of the most hyped skincare items of the last few years. It came out while I was overseas so I didn’t try it early on. Being a late adopter of the product I was very skeptical of it’s claims! Here is what the company says it will do:
What it is:
A scientifically advanced SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment to target, prevent, and heal problem skin.
What it is formulated to do:
This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin. It works to magnetically draw out dirt and pores with Activated-X Charcoal, leaving skin smooth and healthy-looking.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
Based on consumer trials:

What CGR says about GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment:
1. My skin did look better. The pores were tight.
2. It did work on blackheads and sebaceous clogs. My nose looked clearer than it has in awhile. I don’t have either of these that badly but the few I do have were improved or gone.
3. My skin was very smooth for 3 days after the mask.
4. I have two small sebaceous hyperplasia’s and it shrunk the size of them and made them peel. They have stayed smaller since the treatment and it’s been weeks since I used it.
1. It burns and stings! I do have sensitive skin and this may subside once my skin becomes used to the product.
2. Once it hardens it’s impossible to move your face.
3. My sample had huge chunks of dried mask in it. I honestly had to throw away over half the sample. This makes me think it dries out really quickly!
4. The price is $69 for 1.2 oz. I think this is too expensive for weekly use unless you have very bad blackhead or sebaceous problems.
5. You can’t use it on broken skin. So razor burn or open blemishes can’t be helped by the product even though it’s suggested it will relieve these symptoms.
If you have very bad skin I think it’s worth getting and trying. If you have a big event coming up and can’t get a facial then it’s worth it. With how fast it seems to dry out I don’t think it will last long enough to be a viable spot treatment or something you hold onto for special occasions. It does live up to most of the claims but I only had enough for one use so my results were only temporary. I would give GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment a B+ based on my skin and my one sample. I will be picking up a jar for myself because it did greatly improve my sebaceous hyperplasia which is expensive to get rid of and hard to treat. Hopefully using this will mean I don’t have to get minor surgery on my face to get rid of them! I think avoiding that is worth $69!
