Skincare Series: Masking It!

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Our skin goes through so much between the environment, chemicals from our products, and even just our body chemistry. Including masks as part of a regular skincare regimen is a simple way to give skin the TLC it deserves. Read on for our low down on Masking It!

Masks come in many variations - Esmé is obsessed with 24k gold masks and I purchased roughly 100 sheet masks during my travels around Asia. But there also masks made of gels, mud, and even chocolate! Whatever kind of mask you choose the important thing is that its active ingredients are best suited to your skin type and concerns. 

All GLAMGLOW masks are available in major beauty stores like Boots, House of Fraser, Space NK, or online at
Tip: A good medium to start with is mud as mud masks are pretty effective and also versatile in the concerns they can treat. I recently purchased four mud masks I swear by, to share with you. All by the popular brand GLAMGLOW, and you know they're not all talk, their stuff works! In review, scroll on!

SUPERMUD - This mask is designed to help fight common skin concerns such as acne, blemishes and breakouts. The mask deep cleans pores leaving your skin looking pore-free. Apply a few layer to clean skin either all over the face or as a spot treatment, leave on for 5-20 minutes and then remove with warm water. Please do not use this mask if you have sensitive skin.

THIRSTYMUD - For extra hydration, this mask gives you it and so much more. Designed to restore, replenish and calm the look of skin, the mark will leave your skin deeply hydrating and glowing. For use as a one off mask, over night or during a flight, this mask will ensure that your skin stays well and truly nourished. Use 2-3 times a week by applying an even layer to clean dry skin, leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes before massaging the remains into the skin or washing off with warm water. Go the extra step and leave the mask on overnight to allow for your skin to be infused with moisture and even apply it during your flight.

FLASHMUD - For a quick brightening treatment, this mask does the job. The mask contains powerful and innovative multi-brightening complexes which help to create bright and luminous skin. The major ingredient is white birch leaf which delivers natural Betulin, Betulinic Acid & Ellagic Acid to create an improved colour balanced skin tone all while brightening the skin. To apply, massage into the skin with circular motions and leave on for 20-25 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water. 

POWERMUD - Our skin goes through a lot during the week and this little treatment  works by deeply cleaning the skin to reveal clean and soft skin, all in a gentle way. The treatment unites the power of Mud & the power of Oil to allow you to say goodbye to the weekly buildup. Apply a thin layer to clean skin. Leave on for 15-20 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. 


With Black Friday coming up you can make a saving on any of these masks at outlets like or House of Fraser. Hope you enjoyed this brief review. If you have any questions about facial masks or Black Friday in general, drop them in the comments below and myself or Esmé will be happy to help.
