The Charcoal Peel Off Mask That Doesn't Hurt

I recently saw a video on one of those healthy living accounts on Instagram, showing the effects after using a charcoal peel off mask, and I was sold! There have been so many good and bad reviews flying around in the media and press, mainly bad, encouraging people not to use these masks as they're painful, bad for your skin and will rip your skin. I assure you, the Masque Bar Luminizing Charcoal Peel Off Mask does not hurt...

The Facial Everyone's Talking About | Environ

When it comes to facials and skincare, I’m not the greatest as I’ve only ever had (now) 2 facials in my lifetime, and have a very basic skin regime. I’ve been eating a lot cleaner than ever before and working out 3 times a week, so I decided it was time to start looking after my skin more! During my teenage years I was really lucky and never really suffered from spots or acne, however last year I suffered a real breakout on my cheeks which caused scarring. It was a trial & error process, but I eventually found a herbal face wash & cream which helped get rid of any new spots, however the damage from the previous spots were still there!  After a lot of research on the different types of facials available (and trust me there are so many) I came across the Environ Facial. Environ is a globally recognised professional skincare brand which specialises in products which contain the vitamins your skin needs, most importantly Vitamin A which is the key ingredient to help blemishes, acne and scars. So after booking an appointment, yesterday I attended my Eviron Purifying Facial at the Luxurious Beauty Boutique which is located in Woodford, Essex

Glam Glow | Review

This is probably the best skincare product I have ever used to date. I've seen a lot of bloggers/celebrities rave about Glam Glow products but could never justify spending over £40 for a small pot of face mask. However after buying the sample size from Sephora, after just one use I could really feel and see the difference and ended up buying the full size...and it's sister. Now this really sounds like one of those Proactive Skincare adverts but I honestly  saw results after just one use...

The black pot is the Glam Glow Youth Mud and the white pot is the Glam Glow Super Mud. Who knew there could be so many different types of mud, especially a mud that costs more than my foundation =P

What does it do?

Glam Glow Youth Mud is basically your all rounder mask as it does the following:

- Brightens skin
- Exfoliates
- Penetrates into the deepest layers of the skin to soften lines and wrinkles
- Tightens, tones and lifts the skin
- Minimises pores
- Absorbs impurities 
- Minimises spots
- Leaves a glow (guess it's called Glam Glow for a reason)

Glam Glow Super Mud on the other hand focuses more on your problem areas so it does the following:

- Helps breakouts/spots
- Minimises black/whiteheads
- Minimises pores
- Helps razor burns and ingrown hair bumps
- Helps skin clearing

Super Mud is the same price as Youth Mud but is smaller in size which is a little cheeky however it's much more effective on the skin. So from the moment you apply the mask on your skin, you will feel a tingle. For a split second I thought "I've just paid £40 for a product that's gonna burn my skin!" but no. It's all part of the process, so at first it tingles your skin but that's just all the natural ingredients working it's magic. The mask dries really fast, which is a bonus for me as I hate waiting. Once washed off, you instantly notice a glow and over time it makes your skin look a lot brighter and clearer. I use this 2-3 times a week only on problem areas, or areas I'm likely to breakout as it helps prevent this. 

I'm going to have to warn you though...once you Glam Glow, you don't go back. And the pot finishes quite quickly therefore before you know it, you'll be um-ing and ah-ing whether or not to buy your next pot as your wallet is probably going to be a little empty but I promise you, it's totally worth it!

Glam Glow is available to purchase online from Feel Unique and £40 each for the two products mentioned above.
