Quenching Extremely Dehydrated Skin with GlamGlow's ThirstyMud™

Hormones, boy oh boy. I can't even begin to tell you how much my skin screams "I'M THIRSTY!" thank goodness most products I am being sent now for review are all about moisturization. This GlamGlow® ThirstyMud™ arrived just in time too!

That being said this mask works wonders for troubled skin in need of deep moisturizing and it definitely performs what it claims: gives glow and really plumps up the skin. It has excellent hydrating properties. I just love it!

GlamGlow® is safe for pregnant women except for the SuperMud™ which is a clearing and whitening treatment for spots (the one in the white jar).
GlamGlow ThirstyMud™ Hydrating Treatment 50g, PhP 3,750

A lot of people have been complimenting on my skin now a days, and I'm telling you, it's not what it seems. Yes, my skin has improved over the past few days. But my skin has been overly dry ever since I got pregnant, and I really took care of my skin because I didn't want to neglect my regimen.

Being pregnant is no walk in the park, on most days I feel so lazy, fat, cranky, weepy, and more. So I didn't want to top that off by looking dry and flaky to add to my mood swings. I wanted to look pretty to make me feel better. That's why I have to work extra hard in looking for safe products for pregnant to make my skin look good, and when I do, I'll feel better too. (Did I just make sense? LOL)

This product does exactly what it says on the packaging. Since I have tried the other GlamGlow products, I didn't even think twice about the effectiveness of this product. If you have very dry skin and nothing seem to work, I would definitely recommend this! Bite the bullet and splurge on this product. If you are still feeling skeptical about spending almost PhP 4,000 bucks on a mud mask, try asking for a sample first (they usually have some). 
The tingling and cooling sensation I felt during the treatment wasn't a problem for me. My skin didn't react to it and it didn't break me out at all. The only reason why I wouldn't give this a perfect 5-star would be because of the price. But other than that it really is amazing and worth the money you will spend. If you are on the fence about buying it and aren't sure, I'd say go for it! You won't be disappointed. And the main thing I liked about this was the fact it left my skin glowing. I couldn't stop looking in the mirror!
Keep the jar sealed with the plastic seal so that moisture and other bacteria and germs won't get in. Use clean fingers to apply this product. I recommend using a small spatula to scoop out the product from the jar.
It has a very light, caramel like consistency, minus the sticky feeling! It smells so delicious too like Vanilla and Caramel (...and coconut?)! It's like slathering Dulce de Leche on your face. Boy, this mask makes me hungry every time I use it.
I apply a THICK later of ThirstyMud™ at night (2 times a week) on my entire face, concentrating a little bit more on my nose area and two dry patches near the sides of my mouth, and also on my cheeks where I flake the most. Although since I started with an all new regimen for maximum hydration, my flakes have decreased dramatically almost to non-existent. Sometimes, when my skin is feeling exceptionally dry and itchy, I apply a very thin layer under my makeup. I just apply a thin layer and wipe off with tissue. Cetaphil and Physiogel hasn't been working for me lately (for a a while those were my chosen products that kept the flakes at bay).

It's not like the other GlamGlow masks (YouthMud™ and SuperMud™) that dry up and harden into a crusty mud mask on your face. Instead, it stays on your face like below, and it has a slight cooling tingly feeling that lasts the entire treatment until you wash or wipe it off.
When I use it at night, I leave on the thick layer for 30 minutes (or more while watching TV or blogging!) I then wipe it off, or sometimes I just wash it off with water. When I wake up, no more flakes! It has a pleasant tingle, a very happy delicious smell, and cooling hydrating effect... It's very refreshing on the skin! Like it's been hydrated. What more could one ask for?
Among all the GlamGlow masks, I would have to say that, all masks work real well on my skin. Each type of mask addresses different issues on my skin! I still use the YouthMud™(original, black jar) to exfoliate my skin to remove nasty flakes, and hydrate with the ThirstyMud™, both masks made me achieve luminous glowing skin! Although both products are top notch, and it would be ideal to use them both!

SuperMud™is also a favorite of mine but I can't use it now while I'm pregnant.
