Review: Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

Hi everyone! Back in December I hauled this Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment mask, but never did a review on it! I finally have used up a whole small pot and I think it's safe to say I can give a decent review on it now. 

The description of this mask on the Sephora site says, "This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It works with the body's natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps leave skin smoother, brighter and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils."

There are also a bunch of claims that almost everyone on the consumer trials saw major improvements in their skin after 1 use and also after a week's worth of use. 

The larger jar, 1.7 ounces, is going to cost you a whopping $69, while the smaller jar, 0.5 ounces, will cost you $19. I bought two of the small jars and I also have a squeeze tube sample that I got in either an Ipsy bag or Birchbox. 


The mask is a beige-y gray color, and you can't really tell from the picture, but there are also bits of seaweed all throughout. I have to admit, it's a little hard applying the mask because of it, and it's also fairly messy. When I posted my haul, I had already tried it once and said I loved it. After finally using up a whole jar of this, my opinion has changed a bit. While I do notice a bit of a difference in my skin when I remove the mask, it's not an amazing difference. I notice more of a change the following morning with my skin feeling softer and a little more glowy. Looking up close, I don't really see a difference in my pore size and I definitely don't think this is as amazing as everyone makes it out to be. I'm tempted to buy the one in the white jar, but looking at that one reminds me of the charcoal mask by Origins, and that one is way cheaper. I ended up getting 4 uses out of this jar, which to me is expensive at around $5 per use. If you want a mask that has pretty much the same effect as Glamglow, try the one from Origins. The full 3.4 ounce size is only $24, almost a third of the price with way more product!

Have you tried this mask before? If so/not, what do you think about it?

  1. Great post! I've heard a lot of amazing reviews about this product but I remained skeptical because of the price! I already use origins and I love their products so I probably won't be purchasing this! Xx

  2. Great review! I've always been kind of wary of clay type masks and don't really wanna spend a huge amount when I'm not sure so this review has been really helpful I might look into the origins one as a possibility:) check out my Instagram page for a little skincare haul I got today :) @clairemruane

  3. I have this mask and have the same opinion about it. It's nice but I don't see any major differences and it's just not worth for the amount of money. Great review!
