Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment

I've read rave reviews for GLAMGLOW left, right, and centre since it's release. I couldn't justify spending £44.99 on a mask, however, when I found it for £29.99 (HERE) on look fantastic; I simply couldn't resist.

The product carries a fresh mint scent which I found fades away when applied to the skin, which I liked as it ensured the product isn't overbearing when in use. The product itself is a thick clay paste with seaweed particles which exfoliate your skin upon removal. The product stiffens your face and is ready for removal within 10-15 minutes, but if your skin is acting up it's best to keep it on for around 20 minutes.

I use this product in many different ways. The main thing I use this for it drying out new spots, when they've just risen; the product extracts all the oils around the spots ensuring they disappear in the next few days. If they haven't reduced after first use I use it again. Another way I use it is as a full face mask as it extracts impurities from under my skin, exfoliates it lightly, then leaves it glowing. I also use it on my nose to soften blackheads, making them easier to push out (yum!).

This mask is great for anyone with spot prone skin or just for the occasional breakout. You need very little product for each use so the mask lasts a good few months at least. Buy here for £29.99 with free international shipping (here).

Origins GinZing Energy-boosting moisturizer

 My skincare routine consists, mainly, of Origins products; I guess you can say i'm addicted. Their masks work wonders, spot creams do just the job, shower gels are extremely refreshing, but i'd never tried a moisturiser of theirs; mainly because I feared the price tag. However, duty-free does crazy things to you and I finally picked one up and boy, is it a beauty!
I can never moisturise my forehead because I suffer from awful breakouts if my skin becomes too oily around that area. As this product has a gel-like formula it's incredibly light and i've found it hasn't caused any outburst of spots whilst keeping my incredibly dry skin moisturised; colour me impressed. My sister who has oily/combination skin finds this doesn't make her face feel greasy whilst it moisturises. Both of us found our faces had more of a "glow" alongside feeling smoother and being more hydrated.

The product costs £23 from Boots for my UK viewers (here) and $26.50 from Sephora for my US readers (here).
