I had tried Glamglow ThirstyMud before, getting a sample made by a Sephora employee in-store.
It just didn’t blow me away. I received a sample foil of the Glamglow Thirstymud mask in a recent beauty order, though, and decided to give it a second chance.
After cleansing and exfoliating (with no new products), I applied the Thirstymud as directed with clean hands. I decided not to leave it on overnight this time.
Like before, my face started to tingle a bit within five minutes. The tingle turned into a noticeable sting within ten. I removed it; my face was very pink. Almost as much as it was after using the Aztec Healing Clay (bentonite clay) mask…but that mask isn’t uncomfortable to me, just circulation-boosting.
I suspect the difference was that I didn’t remove it the first time, and instead dealt with the tingling sensation so that by the time I woke, the discomfort had passed and redness had gone down.
Unfortunately, this product is worthless to me. It smells nice, that’s it. Curiously, I don’t have have sensitive skin…so I’m not sure what component of this product is causing me to react, but it doesn’t work for me.
I have a sample of the Powermud Dualcleanse mask that I will be trying – maybe my skin will respond to it better…but I still can’t see it being worth $69.
