Timing for break outs could never be worse; they show up when you least expect them or want them.
They’re like the guest who didn’t RSVP when you have all of the place settings at each table with no room. Everything was perfectly placed until the last minute.
But, from a planner’s perspective, you’ve got to find a way to blend them in and quickly.
Perhaps it is because I’m actually attending a wedding as a guest this weekend and my face wants to sabotage the rest of my body, but without fail I have a break out. Or should I say HAD.
Instead of having a cry session about it, I took matters into my own hands and nipped it in the bud.
That’s where Glamglow SuperMud came to the rescue.
Before you say, “HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICE TAG ON THAT TINY 1.2oz JAR!?” let me notify you that I indeed have and that’s why I asked for a sample. A FREE sample. Sephora, ladies and gents, is indeed your friend.
The packaging is white, but the contents are dark grey. I was little taken aback as I’ve grown more accustomed to my traditional bright green, swamp monster masks.
In reality, this mask makes you look like even more of a swamp monster, so stay away from your windows or your neighbors might try to sell you out to the media.
After lightly laying it across my face (I didn’t leave thick spots) I let it dry for about 5 minutes.
I noticed that in definitely seeped into my pores and I almost immediately could see every little dot on my face. I had a minor freak out that it wouldn’t wash away and that I had actually done some real harm to myself…
After a good 10 minutes (5 for extra measure) I washed it off.
I wasn’t expecting a miracle, nor was I expecting it to live up to the hype. Honestly, the reviews made it sound like it was indeed some type of super hero for your skin. (eye roll) But…it kind of knocked my socks off, I’m not going to lie.
My face seemed to be glowing, my skin tone seemed to be milkier and my bright red breakout had softened. The redness was no longer flaming red, it had died down to much more of a slow smolder at that point in time.
36 hours have passed and my spots are only tiny pink dots.
To my brides to be who have a break out a week, or days, before their wedding or to anybody who just wants to know, this Super Mud super hero lived up to its super name, take it from me!
Where to buy the full size: SEPHORA
TIP: As stated above, visit your local Sephora and ask for a sample; they’re more than generous and the amount will cover your face AND leave some for spot treatment at a later date.
TIP: Want more on hand, but don’t want to buy the full size product? Check for trial sizes on Ebay; you can buy a few packets at a time to keep on hand for those emergencies. Sephora might catch on if you are continuously coming in for free samples 😉
