I decided to blog my last day in Seoul when I was there in June. Follow me around through packing, shopping in Hongdae and getting on the plane in Incheon Airport!
So this was my face after trying to put on the Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. It’s like no other face mask I’ve ever tried before.
First reaction was;
This hurts my skin! Why did no one ever tell me that? Is it cause I just used my Thayers toner? (Mine is the witch hazel one that I’m holding in the picture) I wanted to put this mask all over my face but I gotta stop cause it actually hurts my skin 😦 I guess it’s the AHA and BHA components that make the skin hurt for the first bit after application. I tried a Paula’s Choice product that hurt my skin in a similar way and it contains AHA.
After the first minute it stops hurting the skin. I’ve heard many people review this mask as having a tingling feeling but I totally disagree, it really feels a bit painful, I was even considering washing it right off because of this. The thing is that my skin is so bad right now that I am trying everything to make it better. I’m right now taking medicine, Isoretinoin Orifarm (also called Accutane or Roaccutane), and I’m just starting since a month back so I haven’t yet had any results so I’m still struggling with my skin problems.
The mask dries really hard, and quickly, it was already starting to dry within minutes of application. This is what it looks like when it’s dried:
I’ve now used it twice, the second time I used it solely as a spot treatment and didn’t spread it all over my face but instead focused on the more troubled areas. The mask still hurts my face for the first minute, maybe a bit longer. So that’s a bit of a disappointment. Beauty is pain, right?
Update; I’ve used it 4-5 times now and I’m still not blown away with the product, and I really wanted to be. I still prefer my Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. I’ll update again if this changes. So far I feel like this mask hadn’t reduced my blemishes, I’m more wondering if my new increase in getting blemishes might be because of it. I have dry sensitive skin…
