Magic in a jar. Why Glam Glow Youth Mud is worth every penny?

Hello my lovelies. Sunday post is a little delayed this week. I had some problems with auto-publishing, which made me not only miss the Saturday post, but only just realised Sunday post is still not up. First world problems right? I don't know about you, but I had a very strange end to the week, little emotional. The weekend came and brought a good weather spell and my mood lifted. Thank you sun for making my problems go away :)

Today I'd like to talk about my incredible discovery, that is Glam Glow Youth Mud Mask. It literally changed the way I view my skincare. I don't shy away from spending a little extra, when it comes to product I put directly on my face. Be this a designer foundation or luxury skincare. Whilst skincare is a personal choice, I think this mask is an exception to the rule. I began testing it around 2 months ago and loved it from a first result. When first applied, it tingles. It makes you wonder if those £50 you spend on this tiny, tiny jar was even worth it, if you suddenly allergic to the thing? Let me tell you. It is worth it :) It's worth every 4999 pennies I spent on it.

Firstly let's talk my history with Glam Glow. Youth Mud originated from US where we first heard about it by celebrities raving about how amazing this product is. I always take these reviews with a pinch of salt. Unless I try something myself, I will never fully believe the reviews of others. I'm not taking being paid for reviews. In modern world, where bloggers spent a huge time of their life testing new products, you can't blame anyone for making money from it. Would you like to work for free your entire life? No, you wouldn't. Whenever I get free PR samples, I talk about it in the same way, as I would, when I paid for something myself. As I mentioned previously skincare is such a personal choice, it's impossible to form an opinion without testing it on your own. To make my review even more comprehensive, I gave out samples of Youth Mud to my friend and my mother. Here's why. I have a very dry, slightly dehydrated skin. I'm 30 years old and have slight lines on my forehead. My skin doesn't break out often. My friend skin is on an opposite end of the scale. She's combination with tendencies to nearly constant breakouts. She's little younger too, but with lines formed around her eyes. Then my lovely mom, who celebrated her 58th Birthday this year. She's a fabulous little lady with dry skin and lots of lines, some quite deep, especially around forehead. I wanted to really check if Youth Mud is such a miracle, as described on their website.

Let's talk about that for a bit. It describes the product in a very high praise:

This performance driven super mask is an absolute must for those who seek the highest quality ingredients and exceptional results, even if you have never used a mask before – YOUTHMUD is unique. It doesn't just take care of one skin concern,it delivers everything you need for great skin, whatever your skin type.  
YOUTHMUD delivers both instant and cumulative results and leaves your complexion revived and glowing for 3 days after each application. With its heritage in Hollywood film studios, YOUTHMUD has flown off the shelves stateside and is now available in the UK.  

Here's what I discovered through months of testing:

1. Packaging. In this smart, beautifully designed jar, you will find 50g of the product. I wish, it was a little more, as the price is quite hefty. I use a fair amount to cover my face but I still have around half the jar left after 2 months of using it 3-4 times every fortnight. 

2. Formula. It has slight herbal scent to it but it's not overpowering. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't bother me at all. It's of a greyish colour with peeling bits mixed in. When you apply it, it starts to tingle, but the feeling goes away 1-2 minutes in the treatment. You supposed to leave it on for 10 minutes. I sometimes leave it on for longer, especially if my Youth Mud night is my spa night and I get in a tub with it. I didn't see any side effects after keeping it on for 20 minutes. When you take it off, you supposed to massage it off your skin with water or hot cloth, giving your face a scrub of a lifetime. Your skin will thank you for it. It contains no artificial colours or fragrances. It's suitable for vegans, 100% paragon free and also cruelty free. It's a winner :)

3. Results. All three of us cannot praise this enough. I can see a vast improvement in the quality of my skin. It's giving you an instant lifting effect, fills in any small fine lines and improves skin colour. Goodbye dry patches, goodbye tired skin. Just look at me and my glow. Effects last around 2-3 days but I find that with the continuous use, my skin has definitely improved. My lovely friend has also fell in love with the product. She says, it absorbs the oils but without dehydrating her skin. She saw an improvement in her pores after just one use. They seem tighter. Her skin cleared out slightly after 2 weeks of use. She has now purchased the full size jar and also another mask from Glam Glow. Youth Mud won her over. My mom also saw instant results. Her skin feels tighter and lines seem to be more "relaxed" She uses the mask now every 3 days or even in the morning before any important day for an instant lift. 

I fell in love with Youth Mud instantly. I find that it works best if used regularly. However you can also use it as an instant lift and brightener before an important day at work or a date :)

Is it worth the price? 100% yes. This is the first mask I fell in love with instantly. It doesn't just deliver instant results. In time your skin becomes something you haven't seen since you were much, much younger. My skin feels tighter, my little lines nearly non existent. It's an incredible purchase.

It's now available in UK and I bought mine from Look Fantastic. Watch out for promotions as I now ordered two more recently with -£10.00 of each. Check it out here, as the offer is still available.

  1. Great review! :)
    I've looked at this several times but never got around to purchasing it, mainly because of the price point. I think I will sooner or later, though.

    1. It's certainly expensive but I think it's worth every penny :) My skin looks so much better now I've been using it x

  2. wow seems like glamglow is really worth the hype and money! I have yet to try them! great review :)

    1. Thank you Amanda ! Yes, I was hesitant before as well, as it's pricey. Now I use two masks already and planning on purchasing a new one (radiance mask) once it comes to UK :) definitely worth monies in my opinion x

  3. It sounds like a real love between you and the mask :) I had two deluxe samples in the past of Youth Mud and while I liked it, it didn't impressed me enough to spend £50 on it. But like you said, skincare is a very personal thing :) x

    1. It truly is. I have to say myself and mom were more impressed than a friend with combination skin. With continuous use she enjoyed it as well as it had a great effect on her time, whilst we saw instant results (being dry skinned). I think it's a mask that will work on everyone but it depends if you like the instant effect or you're willing to stick around and wait for it x
