Today we will be doing a review on the new – peel off – mud mask made by GlamGlow and they named it “Gravitymud Firming Treatment” – sounds cool – but does it work?
GlamGlow claims that this Gravitymud lifts your skin. It also claims that your skin feels tighter, not sure what the benefit of a tighter skin is…
The packaging of the jar is beautiful! Some maybe find it over the top but I like the look of it. It comes with a small brush which is comes in handy when applying (more later) the Gravitymud mask.
What I still don’t like is the jar packaging, it’s less hygienic compered with – for instance- a tube and anti-oxidant can’t keep stable for a long time in this way. Then again, you probably run out fast since it only contains 1.4 oz.
Last year we did a review on the Supermud Clearing Treatment made by GlamGlow and it still contained parabens. The Gravitymud doesn’t! Good work GlamGlow! But what does it contain?
If we take a closer look at the ingredients list we see that it contains less mud, or lava clay. Less then 10%! But that’s not shocking to me, what is shocking to me is that it contains lots of alcohol. So much that I literarily stared to the ingredients list for 10 minutes.
These are the first ingredients on the list: Water, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Alcohol Denat.
Applying the Gravitymud mask (and peeling it of)
The Gravitymud smells very nice, probably the nicest smells we have ever experienced using a mask! The fragrance is one of the last ingredients on the ingredients list so this means that they didn’t used much fragrance.
I would recommend the brush applying the gravitymud mask. It’s so much easier (and more hygienic) than applying it by hand.
You will not experience a tingling feeling while using the mask, unlike the Supermud Clearing Treatment. You just feel the mask drying up every minute, nothing special.
After 20 minutes your face is all silver and you look like a robot. Your kids will love it!
Peeling of is easy when you have used the brush. It takes not more then a minute.
As much as we all wanted to love this mask, the results are very disappointing. We have used the entire jar, nothing happened, nothing at all. Well at least it doesn’t dry your skin completely out like the “Balancing Oil Absorbing Mask” by Paula’s Choice.
We wouldn’t recommend the GlamGlow Gravitymud mask. It’s doesn’t do your skin any harm, but certainly no good either. You can buy it to see your kids laugh when you have the mask on; then again, there are cheaper alternatives to do so. If you are looking for an alternative detoxifying Face Mask, we would recommend MUDMASKY, which is rated as “Best Mud Mask” by us.
