About this deal

A daily moisturizer and soft highlighter cream in one that is said to instantly hydrate and add buildable glow with illuminating pearls that blur and enhance the complexion The highest concentration ingredient (after water) is denatured alcohol, which helps to reduce excess oil on the skin — but not in a healthy way! Keep reading below to learn why alcohol-based products are likely doing more harm to your skin than good Key ingredients include volcanic pumice, kaolin clay, montmorillonite clay, and green tea leaf extract

Overall, we think that most GlamGlow products are formulated well, but we would recommend avoiding the products that contain high concentrations of denatured alcohol. Pros An exfoliating clay mask treatment that is said to instantly smooth and polish to revive skin’s youthful glow and reveal soft smooth skin in as little as 10 minutes GlamGlow SUPERTONER Exfoliating Acid Solution is a pore-clarifying exfoliating acid toner designed to unclog pores, remove dead surface cells in one sweep, and promote a clarified complexion. It is recommended for those with oily and combination skin types. Unfortunately, GlamGlow SUPERTONER Exfoliating Acid Solution has the potential to actually cause signs of aging and excessive oil production due to its very high concentration of denatured alcohol. In fact, denatured alcohol is the second highest concentration ingredient in this formula after water. Denatured alcohol is well known to cause skin dryness, irritation, and even disruption of the skin barrier, especially when used in high concentrations. For those with oily skin, denatured alcohol may seem to be beneficial because it immediately degreases skin. However, stripping your skin of its natural oils can actually lead to increased oil production to compensate for the dryness, which counteracts the immediate degreasing and makes your skin look more oily and shiny than before. Key ingredients include kaolin clay, activated charcoal, eucalyptus leaves, and a six acid blend of alpha and beta hydroxy acids (mandelic acid, tartaric acid, pyruvic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid)The best GlamGlow moisturizer depends on your skin type. Since the GlamGlow Super Water Gel Moisturizer is oil-free, this moisturizer is best for those with oily, combination, and/or acne-prone skin. The GlamGlow WaterBurst moisturizer is great for those with normal to dry skin types due to the inclusion of emollients like meadowfoam seed oil, hazel seed oil, and squalane. And the GlamGlow GlowStarter Illuminating Moisturizer is best for those who want the benefits of a moisturizer, primer, and highlighter in one product. What Are The Key Ingredients in GlamGlow Products? GLAMGLOW has been helping consumers achieve hydrated, smooth, and clear skin since 2011. Since then, the brand has spread globally and is now found in 86 countries and over 6,000 retail stores. The company may be known for its GLAMGLOW face mask line, but they also create cleansers, moisturizers, and lip treatments, including GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD, GRAVITYMUD, PLUMPRAGEOUS, and a sparkly glitter face mask treatment.

Similarly, the activated charcoal that’s used in the GlamGlow mask formulations works by trapping toxins and impurities in its millions of tiny pores. Rather than absorbing the toxins, however, activated charcoal works through adsorption (the chemical reaction where elements bind to a surface). Thus, activated charcoal helps to purify and detox the skin. For example, one review says, “I would not describe my skin as sensitive and I have never had an issue like this but I just used this mask for the first time and as soon as I put it on, my face started burning. After five minutes, since it hadn’t stopped, I removed the mask and was left with red, hot, blotchy skin. I thoroughly cleansed my face and applied aloe vera but the sensation has not stopped. It looks as though it started to burn off the top layer of skin.” A lightweight water gel moisturizer for acne-prone skin that is said to instantly hydrate, clarify, and control shine without instigating new breakouts for balanced, healthier and clearer-looking skin Another major problem with using high concentrations of denatured alcohol is that this ingredient is well known to cause skin dryness, irritation, and even disruption of the skin barrier. According to a publication in the journal BBA Biomembranes., alcohol disrupts the lipids that make up the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin). While alcohol may provide short term benefits, it’s not doing your skin any good in the long run.

According to Dr. Stacy Chimento, a board certified Miami dermatologist of Riverchase Dermatology, lavandin oil (which is made up of true lavender and spike lavender extracts) and camellia leaf extract contain antioxidant properties. Similar to lavandin oil, Kaolin clay also draws oil from the skin. As a result, it's a particularly beneficial ingredient for anyone who has naturally oily skin or is prone to breakouts.

For example, one review for the GlamGlow Supermud Mask says, “I have been using this mask for about a year now and it has done wonders to my skin. I have very sensitive skin and have struggled with acne for years. I use this mask twice a week and have had no troubles with it drying out my skin or any irritation.

The immediate de-greasing effects of alcohol-based products can actually stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, causing skin to look even more shiny and oily than it was before. This excessive oil production combined with the possible irritation that denatured alcohol can cause may lead to an increase in acne breakouts.A chrome peel-off face mask treatment that is said to help skin feel firmer, tighten and lift skin in an instant Some products (like GlamGlow Super Toner and GlamGlow Gravity Mask) contain very high concentrations of denatured alcohol Key ingredients include silicones, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, pyruvic acid, sodium hyaluronate, eucalyptus leaf, and caffeine Plus, you’ll find kaolin clay and activated charcoal in several GlamGlow mask products, such as the popular GlamGlow Supermud Mask and GlamGlow Youthmud mask. Kaolin has excellent absorption properties, which means this clay can absorb excess oil from the pores and help to reduce shine.
