Review: GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD™ Clearing Treatment, Worth the Hype?

It seems that everyone and their mother raves about the GLAMGLOW line; whether it's the blue jar or the white jar or the black jar. I got a little packet of the GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment (the one in the white jar) in a Sephora order and was super eager to try it and yell from the roof tops how much I loved it like everyone else...

I got the same visible results as everyone else...
I was so excited that it appeared to be sucking out everything from my pores, but then I washed it off and really looked in the mirror.

I won't show you the photographic evidence (cause that's kind of gross), but I still had extractions after the mask. The mask didn't make the extractions less or more painful, but there was still gunk in my pores. My skin feels soft, but it generally feels soft after any type of mask. I don't have any major breakouts, but the hype surrounding this stuff is insane. I want to say that my sample was from a bad batch or that another time it would have gotten "the gunk out", but my conclusion is the mask is nice, but it's not worth $69 and it doesn't remove the gunk from your pores. If you have the mask and know how to safely extract your blackheads, see if you have anything to extract after this mask. I did and there was. Therefore, my conclusion is that the "seeing it work" is some kind of chemical interaction and not a magical oil extraction that many are touting. Perhaps I'm wrong.

To answer my own question, no - not worth the hype.

Nothing to disclose.
