The marketing for this face mask is that it’s perfect for selfies… THEY GOT ME. (And I’m glad they did, because I ended up loving it.) The product is GLAMGLOW GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment, and the pitch is that it’s an instant firming and tightening treatment. It comes in a little purple tin and smells like coconut candy.
You swipe the white goop on your face with the brush (included in the package), let it dry for 20-30 minutes, and it turns from white to silver. I tried it yesterday before heading off to a Super Bowl party, and thoroughly enjoyed the gimmick of watching my face transform into the Tin Man’s. After 30 minutes, the mask dried into a sort of sticky sheet that I peeled off in one fell swoop (and you know I love anything that makes me feel like a snake shedding its skin). My skin felt tight and firm, as promised, and was glowing like I’d just gotten a facial. I don’t think the effects are necessarily long-term lasting (I woke up this AM looking as haggard as ever), but I’ll definitely be using this any time I have an event where I know I’ll be taking lots of photos, or simply for a pick-me-up when I want my skin to look great. Or, when I’m hosting a Girls Night and we want to take a group selfie in which we all look like silverfish/robots/aliens.
*Not sponsored, I dropped my own hot steaming cash on this. It’s not cheap at $69, but I liked it enough that I’m not suffering Buyer’s Remorse. #NOREGRETS (Don’t tell Tony.)
