I had heard lots about this famous face mask the passed few months, mostly from my best friend who swears by it! She lovingly handed over her half used pot as she no longer needs it so I was able to try it out for myself. As it's my birthday we all need a pamper, and this is perfect. First off, I love that it has a brush to apply it. I'm not 100% sure if set comes with the brush as she said it was an offer. However, the brush makes it really easy to apply and best of all - mess free! The GLAMGLOW SuperMud Clearing Treatment says:

The world’s most scientifically advanced GLAMGLOW® SUPERMUD® is a magical mud clearing treatment that will target, prevent and heal for seemingly poreless skin. Ideal for use as a full face mask or targeted spot treatment.

GLAMGLOW® SUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment has been clinically developed by GLAMGLOW®'s Dermatological Chemist to help fight all common skin concerns…
- Visible pores?- Problem skin?- Blemishes?- Pimples?- Breakouts?- Spots?- Black and white heads?- Razor burns?- In-grown hair?

This amazing detoxifying mud mask is fantastic for fighting all common skin concerns - it helps with the lightening and evening of the complexion; creates a more youthful and smooth skin tone; improves elastin and collagen; de-clogs and minimises pore size and fights unwanted breakouts, by reducing redness and super-speeding the healing process.

GLAMGLOW® SUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment can be used as a full mask for the entire face or simply as a one-spot wonder solution! With SUPERMUD® you can visibly see your pore congestion pull-out and encapsulate within the mask for immediate and amazing results in just one use.

As you can see, this mask promises the world! I've been using this a few times a week for the passed few weeks and I must admit I like it. I have a HUGE problem with blackheads which seem to be my only problem. I have little breakouts and hardly worry about any upcoming spots, but blackheads just don't seem to leave my skin, no matter what I try. GLAMGLOW has helped reduce my 'bigger blackheads' and has gotten rid of a few small ones. They're still not completely gone, but there is a huge difference in numbers and appearance. I wish I had a done a before and after as you'd see what I mean! 

The mask itself is a dark blacky navy like paste which goes on perfectly with the brush. There's small, and sometimes large, pieces of what I can only think is some kind of leaf or herb in the mask, but it doesn't make application any different. I apply a even amount either all over or just on the nose and chin. As it dries my whole face tingles. It's not at all uncomfortable, but it feels like tiny little pricks all over your face. I also think the smell reminds me of licorice - Someone explain that one... It dries almost instantly to a grey powder looking substance with tiny little black dots where my spots or blackheads would be. I then wash it off a few minutes after it's dried with warm water and a flannel and oh my goodness - my skin feels incredible. It's unbelievably soft. There's no rough areas at all! A few minutes after washing I apply a moisturiser as it is slightly drying. I'll use my Yves Rocher one during the day, or my BareMinerals oil before bed. 

Overall I really like this, and has helped massively with my skins texture and blackheads. Is it worth the price tag? £40 seems a little steep to me, but I think I would try it again. I will keep on using this twice a week now until I am happy with my blackheads - I'll keep you updated if this gets rid of those pesky blackheads!

I'm always on the hunt for great skin care, and I must admit I am lazy when it comes to looking after my skin. Nowadays I hardly were makeup due to my long days and physically active degree. When asked to review these lovely products I suddenly realised, I need to be kind to my skin. 

"Even deep wrinkles are significantly corrected. Skin regains plumpness and appears firmer. Skin is hydrated throughout the day thanks to the product’s smoothing texture, which provides an excellent base for makeup. Plus with Plumping Night Care skin appears firmer and more toned when you wake up in the morning. Skin is intensely nourished thanks to the product’s corrective balm texture."

"The latest innovation from Yves Rocher - Serum Vegetal. The star ingredient in these exclusive new facial serums is the super powerful mesembryanthemum crystallinum - otherwise known as the crystalline ice, or life plant! Perfectly absorbed by the skin, this incredible botanical property stimulates the skin's protein, which reactivates the cellular mechanisms that fight wrinkles."

I'm 21 and don't have any obvious winkles, so I was fine on that front. Although I find that my skin isn't as even as I would like it to be, and often has a rough texture. I decided to apply this morning before makeup application using the Day cream, and using the Night cream before I go to bed. I kept this up for 3 weeks and waited for improvements.
Skincare is a tricky one to review, you need to give it a good trial before making a decent review, but I really like this cream! Both creams are so soft and luxurious and almost instantly gets absorbed into the skin. There's no difference in both the creams in texture, scent or ability to absorb. The cream creates a soft velvety texture for my makeup and allows for easy foundation application. I always put cream on to help any dry areas, and this did just that. The cream had a really nice soft smell that's almost powdery, but not in an uncomfortable way.
After 3 weeks have I seen a change? I have fairly good skin anyway, but recently I've been doing shows so I have been putting on drying face paints and taking them off often, and this has really helped stop my skin going flaky and dry. They keep my skin hydrated and even - My skin is very happy!
The set also comes with a cute bag which is lined nicely and isn't one of those 'cheap freebies' you sometimes get with gifts. I really like this bag as it's small enough to put into my travel bag, and long enough to put in my eyeliners. 
Overall, I really am enjoying these creams and does the job well for me, maintaining my skin at a healthy level. I will continue to use these!
