If somebody told me 2 years back that an entire business could be built out of mud, I’d be shocked. Yet here we are, with the 5th member of Glamglow’s happy mud family, proving me wrong on every count. The latest PowerMud comes in a refreshing lime green packaging, that is a harbinger of the fruity pear fragrance of this mask, a very refreshing change from the other mud masks of old.
Powermud is a unique mud-to-oil facial mask that is meant to be used once a week for a deep cleanse. It contains Glamglow’s signature Teoxi Velvet Leaf which contains valuable fatty acids, minerals and saponins to help nourish the skin. In addition, Powermud features 3 new technology:
Powermud feels very different from the other Glamglow muds as it is firstly fruit-scented, and the texture is also much lighter. It also lacks the chunky leaf pieces, and the exfoliators are noticeably lesser and finer.
Powermud is the quickest mud to use, which makes it really ideal when getting ready to dash out for an event or trying to get into bed as quickly as possible. The mud dries up within 5-10minutes depending on how much you slather on, and then to remove, moisten the area and gently massage in circular motion. This transforms the dried mud into a cleansing oil, and then simply rinse under running water to remove completely.
I’ve not been able to use anything but hydrating cream masks and sheet masks all over my face as I’ve been dealing with very sensitized skin on my cheeks. However, I realize that despite having dry flakey skin, I still need a good gentle exfoliation weekly to get rid of the dead skin, and also all the rich creams I’ve been piling on are clogging my pores and I badly need to deep cleanse. So, what I’ve taken to doing is multi-masking!!! I apply Powermud on my oilier and much more resilient t-zone, i.e. forehead, nose, chin; and Thirstymud on my dehydrated cheeks. If I’m feeling hardworking, I also add Brightmud around my eyes. Aaahh.. now we are getting close to uncovering the point of having multiple muds! Of course, if you have much more normal skin (mine being abhorrently abnormal of course), you could apply Powermud all over once a week, followed by Thirstymud. And perhaps once a month or more often depending on your skin’s needs, replace with Youthmud or Supermud for an even more thorough purge. Whatever your inclinations, I have found that Powermud is gentler than Youthmud and Supermud. It is not as drying, and when it turns to oil it feels nourishing on my skin, leaving it comfortable and fresh.
