Time for another GlamGlow review! I have tried their Supermud Clearing Treatment, their Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treament (click HERE) as well as their Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment (click HERE). Therefore, I thought it was about time I tried their Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment. I don’t actually have dry skin but through the winter months my skin can become drier than normal which made it the perfect time to give this product a go. At first I thought this was going to be just like any other mask but I quickly realized that it was different than anything I had ever tried because of its interesting twist on the typical mask concept.
I had no idea before purchasing this that the concept was quite different until I read the instructions. Usually, with most masks, you apply a thin layer of the product, wait for about 15 minutes or so for it to dry and then rinse off. However, for this mask, you apply an even layer all over your skin (face as well as neck and chest if you choose) and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes. Then you can rinse it off OR just wipe off with a tissue and massage the rest into your skin. What I find interesting is that not only can you use this as a mask that you rinse off, but you can also use it as a sort of moisturizer as well. You can also leave this mask on overnight so that it really soaks in and hydrates or even during a flight. When you fly, the air is much drier so applying a good moisturizer beforehand really helps to keep the skin hydrated which keeps it healthy. You can literally use this mask just about anywhere which is fantastic!
In the tub this mask has a beige color to it but once you apply it to your skin it immediately turns clear so you can’t even tell you have applied it. This also has a great light scent to it which is sort of sweet. I can’t quite think of what the smell reminds me of, which drives me crazy, but I love it. It feels very creamy and has a thin consistency so a little goes a long way which is great considering it’s quite expensive. Even though it has a thin consistency it can sometimes feel a little heavy. It’s not super heavy but it’s not lightweight because I can still feel it on my skin a bit. At first it has a cool tingly feeling but not in a hurtful way. It reminds me of using a minty shampoo or lip product.
I do feel that this mask takes quite a bit of time to absorb into the skin. While it’s on it does feel tacky and even after I removed it with a tissue the first time it still felt a bit tacky on my skin. For that reason, I now choose to rinse it off with water. Afterwards my skin definitely feels smoother, softer and suppler. The only downside was that this did make my skin turn slightly red, but it wasn't real bad and went away fairly quickly. My skin can be a bit sensitive so if you also have sensitive skin I would just be cautious.
Overall, I really loved the way this mask worked and the concept of it. I would recommend this product to everyone, not just those who have dry skin. Obviously it can be great for those who suffer with dry skin or even who have some dry patches, but it’s also great for those with oily skin as well. Oily skin still needs moisture to actually combat the oil and the problems that come with it because hydrated skin is healthy skin. I know this product is quite expensive for a lot of people but it really does a great job without using a lot of the product. Hope this review helped you out and let me know if you tried any other products from this brand that I haven’t. I would love to know your thoughts on them and if I should try them out or not.
