The GlamGlow Hype

GlamGlow has recently launched in South Africa. There’s a whole lot of hype surrounding these products so I’m here to break it down for you.

GlamGlow is a line of volcanic mud-based exfoliating masks originally created for Hollywood actors and celebrities to attain camera-ready skin. One jar yields around 17-20 applications.

The range can be picked up at selected Edgars and Red Square stores:

Thirsty Mud Treatment Mask R850


A non drying hydration mask to deliver extreme moisture whilst replenishing and revitalizing the skin.  This mask contains ingredients such as Natural malic and hydroxy acids to ensure short and long term results.  Since this is not an exfoliate mask, the concoction can sink into the skin before wiping off the excess after 15-20mins. This range  has a daily hydrating cleanser that retails for R590.

Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask R850


A mask that has been noted to be an acne game changer and suitable even for the most sensitive of skin types.  This charcoal clay infused mixture absorbs 500 its mass in bacteria which basically results in less sebum (oil) production and instantly glowing skin.  This range is also accompanied with a Supermud Clearing Cleanser (R590).

Youth Mud TingleExfoliate Treatment Mask R850


New technology coupled with real Green Tea Leaf is the ‘magic’ behind the anti-aging and anti-wrinkle results, delivering fresh antioxidants directly into the mud to hydrate, balance oil production and fight free radical damage. French Sea Clay detoxifies the skin by drawing out impurities, while Ivy helps tone, tighten and lift the skin. The YouthCleanse Exfoliating Cleanser retails for R590.

Power Mud Dual Cleanse Treatment Mask R850


While water and oil may not mix, this innovative mask proves that mud and oil make quite the cleansing power couple. This unique formula starts out as mud.  Water is added which transforms the product into oil to deliver a deep clean. A blend of four clays, including ultrarare Brazilian white clay, offers detoxifying benefits, while a mix of prickly pear, pine, frankincense, and myrrh oils help whisk away dirt whilst  leaving the skin feeling  velvety soft. PowerCleanse Daily Dual Cleanser retails at R590.

Flash Mud Brightening Treatment Mask R850



Innovative multi-brightening complexes help to create the brightest, lightest, and most luminous skin possible. White birch leaf creates an improved, color-balanced skin tone. Flashlucent technology drives ingredients into the skin for a luminous, younger-looking complexion. Reflectrum technology is a blend of brightening ingredients boosted with diamond photoluminescence to increase the reflecting level of the skin and make it appear radiant and more attractive.  A smaller, on the go jar, Flash Mud reatails at R290.

Gravity Mud Firming Treatment


A peel off mask that changes color from white to a brilliant chrome.  It is known to visibly tighten and lift skin for a youthful-looking complexion. The skin’s contours are given a defined and radiant look. This treatment is a solution to fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and loss of firmness and elasticity. The Gravity Mask is one of GlamGlow’s most popular products.

Dream Duo Overnight Transforming Treatment  R850


A moisturizing two-step serum for visibly plumper, more hydrated skin. ‘Dreamserum’ (pearl in colour) is a melt-in face serum that infuses antiaging antioxidants into the skin, while supercharged essential vitamins support an even, flawless complexion. ‘Dreamseal’ (gray) is a nourishing moisture boost of hyaluronic acid and mozuku green algae that plumps and recharges skin’s glow. This duo can be your solution for dullness and dryness.

Cleansers R590
