Glam Glow Gravity Mud #Glittermask Review

Glam Glow #GLITTERMASK Firming Treatment is a fun, glitter-filled take on their already hugely popular peel-off Gravity Mud. To be honest, I find the idea of a glitter mask a bit instagrammy and gimicky. I don’t get the whole glitter thing, I get that it looks cool, but I’m all about skincare performing effectively rather then aesthetically. Having never used the original, I can’t compare the two but let’s dive into this glitter filled baby to see what it is all about.

Hello beauties,

If you follow my socials you may have caught my time at the wonder that was MECCALAND. For my overseas readers, MECCALAND was the first of its kind here in Australia. It was a 3-day festival of beauty, filled with exclusive limited edition products, masterclasses, meet & greets with beauty gurus and so much more – it really was an unreal experience that three weeks later, I am still reeling from.

I was ridiculously lucky to be invited and flown down to Melbourne for a sneak peak, before MECCALAND was open to the public. And, as if that wasn’t enough, I received an incredible goodie bag filled with a whole heap of limited edition products. The Glam Glow #Glittermask was one of those fabulous products.

Glam Glow #GLITTERMASK Firming Treatment is a fun, glitter-filled take on their already hugely popular peel-off Gravity Mud. To be honest, I find the idea of a glitter mask a bit instagrammy and gimicky. I don’t get the whole glitter thing, I get that it looks cool, but I’m all about skincare performing effectively rather then aesthetically. Having never used the original, I can’t compare the two but let’s dive into this glitter filled baby to see what it is all about.

#GLITTERMASK is said to visibly firm, tone and boost radiance after just one use. It is meant to leave the complexion taut, luminous and even more youthful than before. Sounds like a winner, right? But does it live up to it’s claims?

Below is a snap of my tired little mug. This was after a night of quite a few breastfeeding sessions, so my skin definitely needed some firming, lifting and brightening. And I needed a hell of a lot of coffee.

What a potato

 

The size of the tub is the same as the other GlamGlow masks, containing 50 grams of product, which for the price does seem quite steep. However, I found that you don’t need all that much to cover your face, so it should last quite a while. The formula is black, full of glitter and smells amazing, I want to say it smells of pineapples but I can’t be sure.  The consistency is sticky and thick and reminds me slightly of a cooling gel once applied to the skin.

It spreads like a breeze on the face, and I apply a fairly generous amount. But I’m conscious about not spreading it too thickly, otherwise it would takes hours to dry. I imagined that the glitter would be somewhat sharp or gritty on the skin, but I hardly felt it at all.

The mask took about 30 minutes to dry and I was a little nervous to peel it off, because in the past peel off masks have basically waxed my face of all peach fluff – Not cool. Not fun. very ouch.  Butttttt, this peeled off with absolute ease, not one hair was plucked out of my little head. My skin instantly felt really fresh and bright. After glancing in the mirror my face definitely looked more firm, taut and definitely luminous.  No bags or sagging in sight.

A brighter looking potato

In summary, I have really loved the results of the #glittermask. My skin is de-puffed, bright and more youthful. I think that this would be ideal before an event to ensure your skin is in tip-top shape. The glitter is fun, great for pictures but totally unnecessary.  It is the same price as the original so you can opt to be a glittery potato or stick to the silver. As much as I love what the mask does, I don’t think I could drop $86 on one mask  – probably because I’m on maternity leave and a little strapped for cash. However in the future there is a good chance I may look into this little sparkly black beauty again.

 

What are your thoughts about the #glittermask?

Bare Babe Coconut and Coffee Exfoliating Mask

Hello 🙂

Happy Friday lovely people. Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been waiting on a few products to photograph, but it looks like some of my PR parcels have gone missing.  So frustrating! But alas, I have come across a new product that I have instantly fell in love with, and NEED to tell you guys about it.

Bare Babe is a Coffee and Coconut Face Mask that comes in a humble little multi-use pouch. Aimed at all skin types for illumination, exfoliation, and nourishment. The mask is full of beautiful organic ingredients like Kaolin, Coconut Oil, Coffee Seed Powder, Almond Oil and Rosehip Oil.  The most distinguishing and remarkable thing about this mask is that it contains a natural pineapple enzyme (AHA), that chemically exfoliates the skin to perfection. This mask also smells so so so amazing. I seriously cannot get enough of the intoxicating chocolate coconut scent.  The formula itself is creamy with little spots of coffee. It applies really well and isn’t sticky at all.  The mask dries in about 10 minutes, however if you have sensitive skin it is recommended that the mask is only left on for 5 minutes. You can feel a slight tingle from the AHA, but it isn’t painful or overwhelming. It actually feels nice and you know that the mask is getting to work, buffing away at those pesky dead skin cells. Bare Babe is easy to remove; all you need is a nice warm cloth and a few circular movements. My skin was left a little pink, but it felt lovely and oh-so smooth. My face was plump, soft and felt really fresh. It has got to be one of the loveliest face mask I have ever used.  I have nothing bad to say about this product. Except maybe, that the pouch isn’t large enough, or that you can only enjoy it once a week, due to the AHA. Bare Babe is an absolute pleasure to use, I love smelling like a giant coconut rough Mmm…. I just need to add this to list of products I need a lifetime supply of.

A few more things to note is that Bare Babe is Australian-made,  99% natural, vegan friendly and cruelty free.  Plus this little guy is only $19.95 (with free postage). I would estimate that it contains around 4+ uses.  Do yourself a favour and check Bare Babe out –  I highly recommend this product.
