A new addition to my face masks collection is the Powermud™ ‘Mud to Oil” DualCleanse Treatment mask from GlamGlow. Packaged in a bright green container, this amazing mask takes cleansing experience to a totally new level. On application, the mask has a smooth creamy texture with a few coarse particles and a unique scent – it smells like green apples with a hint of garden greens. Truly a luxurious indulgence product that provides a multi-sensory cleansing experience by combining the power of mud and the power of oil to achieve extremely amplified, rejuvenating, moisturizing, deep cleansing, yet gentle to the skin results. If you are oily in the t-zone, with slightly or really visible enlarged pores, this product is for you. It removes weekly buildup and tightens the pores leaving the skin super clean, soft, smooth, and velvety to touch.
I tried this mask three times now and was impressed with the results. Aside from the general praise to Powermud™ ‘Mud to Oil” DualCleanse Treatment mask, as a product that allows you to immediately see and feel the effects of the mask, a very big difference between the skin before and after, which is very typical to all GlamGlow masks, this particular product is special in that I tried using it with a facial steamer (the way I normally use all my masks) and on its own, and liked the later better. Although I still believe that the hot steam helps to utilize the power of the active ingredients to the maximum, and prolong the acting time, this particular mask, when applied on its own, cools the skin, cleans and tightens the pores while drying slowly on your face.
It took more than 20 minutes for the mask to completely dry and then I did not use warm wet washcloth to remove the mask (as I normally do), but instead washed it off by gently massaging the face with circular motions that allowed to transform the mask into exfoliating cleansing oil treatment. The skin instantly felt soft and velvety, as I learned thanks to the new Oilixer™ technology used by the brand when creating this revolutionary product, a ‘Skin Super Food’ featuring a bouquet of different oils: Prickly Pear Oil, Pine Oil, Frankincense Oil and Myrrh Oil that work synergistically with new Claytox™4 clay detoxification system featuring Rare Brazilian White Clay and Bio-Mineral Green Clay while New Teaoxi® Velvet Leaf contains fatty acids to nourish the skin, minerals to renew and saponins to deep cleanse.
The skin did not feel irritated afterwards, so if desired, I believe this mask could be used twice a week. But since I have several different masks, I prefer to variate between them, so I will not be using this one more than twice a month. I used the mask in the evening, incorporating it into my usual evening skincare ritual and the morning after, I was still impressed with the results. The pores were almost invisible, the skin felt soft, smooth and moisturized, the discoloration from acne and dark spots was almost gone. My final verdict is that Powermud™ ‘Mud to Oil” DualCleanse Treatment mask is a very good quality product worth buying despite its high price. It does the job you hired it to do!
