First Impressions: GlamGlow Super Mud Clearing Treatment

YouTubers and bloggers alike have been raving about GlamGlow, I put this sample to of the Super Mud Clearing Treatment ($69 1.2oz) to the test! 

See that huge pimple? Let's see if it makes a difference

Freshly applied

Dried (after 20 minutes)

.I don't feel like this mask did anything for my skin. My pimple size didn't decrease or become less red. In comparison, I've been using Sephora's Mud Mask Purifying  & Mattifying ($19 2.03oz) and I actually prefer Sephora more. The Sephora brand is thicker in consistency, but it feels like both are doing the same thing. The GlamGlow version burned more than the Sephora one does. They both dry in similar ways. For something was expensive as GlamGlow I expected beautiful perfect skin after. I don't feel or see a difference after using that mask. For $50 less and nearly twice the size I'll stick with Sephora's version!

Real Technique Brush Sales

I'm super late to the game, but there's two awesome deals for Real Technique Brushes going on:

  • Ulta Buy 1 Get one 50% off - Use the coupons that were available on for $3 off for 1 brush from Real Techniques. These coupons have an expiration date of 12/31/15. Use 2, use the 3.50/$10 coupon. Depending on which brushes you pick out it's a great deal. (Do this in store!)
  • Kohls Buy 1 Get one for $1 - AMAZING deal to get in on the new Bold Metals collection! If you have a Kohl's Charge use coupon codes "TURKEY30" and "SHIPMVC"
    • I was able to get the 4 face brushes for $36.40 (pre-tax). They are normally $24-26 per brush.
Don't forget your favorite cash back website!

I'm a huge fan of Real Technique brushes especially that original purple eye set...maybe it's cause I have tiny eyes and they fit perfectly! They are super soft and are great deals!

I am a hoarder. I can't resist a good deal. I also can't resist getting samples or asking for them with purchase. But I am going to try to get a dent into my samples! I took out a few samples of my massive collection...I'm too ashamed to photograph it all, but here's my try to finish by end of 2015!

skincare galore to finish by end of 2015
what I tried tonight
I plan on keeping all my empties to motivate myself. I honestly need to get this under control!

Now makeup...that's another problem. HOW DO PEOPLE HIT PAN?!
