GlamGlow Youthmud!

untitled (2)

Have you guys tried GlamGlow Masks yet? I got a GlossyBox a few months back with a travel size of the GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate . I thought it was kind of weird and didn’t know if I would like it. So, I decided to give it a shot.  I noticed right away that it was very earthy smelling and looked like it had pieces of bark in it.  Usually masks that say tingle burn me, so I was sure this would burn me too. The mask heated up and I waited and waited and you know what? No burn! I thought, huh well it probably won’t do much then. So I rinsed it off and continued on with my shower. As I checked my face in the mirror I couldn’t believe how much cleaner my skin looked. I knew I needed to exfoliate but was unaware of how badly! My cheeks had a nice pink glow and there wasn’t a flaky piece of skin left on my face. So I am here to tell you yes GlamGlow is expensive ($65 a jar) but it is WELL worth it. I am definitely adding it to my Christmas list and if you see a sale don’t think twice and snatch it up. You only need to use it maybe once a week if you need to but could get away with twice a month. At that rate a tube would last you a whole year! Have any of you tried GlamGlow? Do you have a favorite mask? Comments are welcome and appreciated! Thank you!

P.S. I do not get paid to say this! I really love this product!

My Favorite Skin Care Products (Right now)

My skin is always changing. One month I will have perfect glowing skin all month and then next month I will have hormonal breakouts for a week or two. Since my skin is always changing, my routine is constantly changing also. Plus, there’s always new products, treatments, etc; that need to be tried. So here is my fav skin care stuff right now:

Olay Fresh Effect Bead Me Up

I thought this was going to be a really harsh scrub and could only use it once a week at most. But it’s not! It’s really foamy and you really can’t feel any scrubbing action going on. I love how it makes my skin look fresh and clean right after I use it.

Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream

I received a sample of this in my Glossybox about 4 months ago. I haven’t stopped using it and I love it. My skin is usually pretty dry so this is a nice thick day cream. My skin does look and feel a little greasy as soon as I put it on, but it absorbs pretty quick.

Vichy Liftactiv Nuit

I also received a sample of this night cream in my Glossybox about 3 months ago and I love it. It smells great and makes my skin feel so soft. I looked at my local Target to price it out and a full jar retails for about $60. I will probably go buy some because I just love it, regardless of the price.

Olay Regenerist Intensive Repair Treatment

I bought this at Target a couple of weeks ago because it was clearanced out to $5 from $25. I thought it was too good to pass up so I bought it. I am not sure if it is working or not. I use it every morning and evening under my moisturizer but haven’t seen a major difference. I am just glad I am not allergic as I am usually sensitive to retinol. I will keep using it till I run out and see if it does anything!

That was my roundup of a few of my favorite things for my skin right now! I just got a new day cream in my Glossybox which is perfect timing because I am all out of the Eslor! I will keep trying new things and write about it again next month. Hope you enjoyed this! Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts!
