GLAMGLOW – ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment



All catchy songs aside, is this small pot of gold worth our hard earned coin, and does it live up to all the hype?

in my opinion, yes! Ive just had my first “face to face” experience with Glamglow, and I have to say, so far I’m impressed! From the super cute bright and funky packaging, down to its luxurious nutty smell and smooth texture, its an all round winner for me so far.

I firstly cleansed and patted dry my face. Then using my fingers I smoothed about one fourth of the small pots content onto my face using gentle swiping motions, being careful to avoid eye areas. The face mask itself is smooth when rubbed between the fingers, and quiet translucent, which makes it hard to see once its smothered all over your face, but rest assured its there, as you can feel it start to cool and tingle all over your face.

Its main objectives to moisturise, replenish, and soothe the skin for a radiant complexion.

I left the ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment on for roughly 20-25 minutes, and washed it off gently using a warm face washer.

Truth be told, I do not have the most amazing smooth skin with fab complexion, so anything that assists the look and feel of my skin, or has the potential to ease any redness and blemishes… I’m the first in line!

My personal experience with this was amazing. My skin feels cool, “lightweight” meaning not heavy and clogged (which I have experienced with some other face mask brands), and also smooth. My skins appearance seems brighter and fresh. I also felt like when I applied my night cream, that it absorbed into my skin really well.

THE VERDICT? Although a regular size pot of Glamglow can set you back anywhere from $98.00 AUD, you can opt for the smaller “fun size” pots which are under $30.00 AUD, which is really a great way to figure out which face mask is most beneficial for your skin type before splurging out. win-win!

I really loved this product, and I would recommend getting out to MECCA to try for yourself.





Microdermabrasion.. worth it?

Short answer, YES!

Recently I was watching a few of my favourite insta-famous “it” girls, and noticed a new beauty trend which claimed to smooth and brighten tired or dull skin.

After some extensive research, and multiple YouTube videos, I decided a microdermabrasion treatment was something I needed to get.

Microdermabrasion by definition is “a cosmetic treatment in which the face is sprayed with exfoliant crystals to remove dead epidermal cells”.

the actual microdermabrasion process took roughly 10 minutes, but I was in there start to finish for around an hour, which included skin cleansing, facial scrub, peel, microdermabrasion session, face mask, décolletage massage, and face  cream to finish up. the microdermabrasion treatment itself was great. It felt mostly like a sucking motion over the skins surface, with a slight scratchy feel. At no time was I uncomfortable, or my skin irritated.

After the facial, WOW! My skin has never felt so smooth, or looked so bright. unfortunately I don’t have any before and after photos, as I didn’t know I would write this blog post, but my next one I get, I’ll be sure to post.

My skin was very smooth, bright, and many of the discolouration and impurities seemed to be gone. I have very troublesome skin (uneven skin tone and lots of breakouts), so this treatment was highly recommended by the beauty therapist who gave the treatment that day. They were great, answered all my questions, and as the treatment progressed they explained each step of the process and the benefits it would have for my skin.

I would rate this 10/10. I will absolutely be going back for another treatment! side-note, if you’re short on cash (as these can be anywhere around the $130 mark. Groupon nearly always has some great deals available. Groupon is where I fond this deal for Pure Harmony skin clinic down in Cronulla NSW, if you’re local check them out!
