Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment

I am a lazy bum when it comes going to a salon...which means I go in for a facial/cleanup say once in a year that too if I really really need it. Most of my skincare needs and requirements are taken care at home (which also means I have a small army of products that help me target specific issues). 

When it comes to the issue of clogged pores/whiteheads/blackheads I was previously using the Innisfree Supervolcanic Pore Clay Mask which works pretty well but it is all about upping your game and discovering better products, yes? So after some contemplation I decided to give the much hyped Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment a go. Luckily Nykaa has a smaller tub (that did not me feel too guilty about burning a hole in my pocket) which I could try out before going in for the full size. I have used it a couple of times on myself and on 2 other people who also have notorious blackhead problems and here's what I think:

"SUPERMUD® Clearing Mask Treatment is our best-selling mask and is the go-to for fighting common skin concerns. Designed for men and women, this mask is the ultimate mattifying and pore-refining superhero. The powerful Activated-X charcoal helps to draw out dirt, oil, congestion and impurities leaving pores looking refined and skin looking instantly more mattified."

Apply a THIN layer to clean skin. Leave it on for 5-20 minutes and remove with water. You can use it as full face mask or as spot treatment.

Unlike the Innisfree clay mask (which is super thick) the consistency of the Glamglow mask is quite runny (I haven't come across a clay mask with this consistency before) but no complains, this makes it quite easy to spread over the face

This one tingles like crazy for the first few minutes when applied (you have been warned). If you have sensitive skin I would suggest you do a patch test before or use this as a spot treatment instead of applying it all over the face. It also has a minty smell and feel which isn't that bad to be honest. I leave it on for about 20 minutes.

Coming to the main part - Does it actually work?

Well, my first impressions say that yes it does. I have tried this on me and 2 others (2 of us used it all over and 1 on the nose). Main problematic area being the nose for all of us and the chin for me. I saw a visible difference on all 3 of us immediately afterwards. 
  • It removed the blackheads by atleast 50-60% if not completely. 
  • It left the skin feeling smooth, pores looked smaller and it had a bit of a brightening effect (which I have to say is temporary).
  • Skin felt throughly cleansed (like all the gunk had been sucked out). You can see it pull out the oil and impurities (especially in the blackead prone areas) which is strangely satisfying!
  • Did not react or cause any breakouts.

I cannot comment on this improving skin texture yet since that would need some long term and consistent use (I will update you if I notice any improvements/changes)

I do not see myself use this as an all over mask as well. For me, I think it would be better suited on the T zone and any other areas that are clogged and prone to breakouts (so as a spot treatment or multi-masking). However feel free to use it all over if your skin needs it (maybe twice a month).

Price : 1750 INR for 15g
           4400 INR for 50g

Yeah, the price is craaaazzzyyy! Which is why I can't say I highly recommend it. The mask works well overall, but somehow the price does not justify it. I wish it was priced better. So do I suggest you buy it? 
It totally depends on you! It is a good mask, no doubts about that. If you don't mind the price tag, surely go ahead. If you are apprehensive about it reacting or not working well, try out the smaller tub first. 
For me, at this price, I would have ideally liked a mask to do a bit more. That being said, if my inner beauty junkie can convince me to splurge on a full tub I will get it :D
