Glamglow Thirstymud, €64.95. No press samples featured. Full disclosure policy here.
I bought a few things from Cloud 10 Beauty recently. You get three free sample-sized products with every order, and a few different Glamglow options were available. I chose Thirstymud, and have already endured enough jokes about being thirsty in the hip-hop sense, so less of that, please.
It’s the hydrating mask in the range, and is supposed to calm stressed skin too. The key ingredients here are emollients and antioxidants.
Straight from my first application (I got three full uses out of my sample), I was hooked. My skin instantly felt lovely; hydrated, smooth and soothed.
When I used it before bed, I just let it soak in overnight and woke up with soft skin. When I used it in the morning, I let it sit for about ten minutes, sprayed a thermal water on top and then wiped most of the residue off with tissue.
The texture of my skin was great, and the little lines I have around my eyes were way less noticeable. I looked rested! On the downside, the pores around my nose were more obvious. I’m not sure why, it’s never happened with other hydrating masks. That effect was temporary, and not major, but it did irk me a little bit.
If you find it hard to keep on your skin topped up with moisture,Glamglow Thirstymud is a great, easy fix. It works. Thumbs up!
The price is the only sticking point for me. If I pay for something with fancy-pants ingredients, I want the packaging to preserve them. The jar container seems a bit cheap, and everything I’ve read suggests that it’s not airtight enough to keep the product as effective as it is on day one.
So, the takeaway here is that I’m chuffed with my sample. It’s a brilliant booster, but not an essential. I really recommend choosing one if you place an order with Cloud 10. Shelling out for the full jar? Only if sixty eur0bux plus change isn’t a big deal for you.
