Product Review: GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment

GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment


I ordered some Nars products today from Sephora and they surprised me with some sample goodies including GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment.

Here are the directions for how to use from the Sephora site:

Suggested Usage:
-Apply a thin layer to clean skin.
-Leave on for five, 10, 15, or 20 minutes.
-Pore-Matrix™ will reveal dots of vacuum extractions.
-Remove with water.
-Use as often as needed.
-Use as a full mask or spot treatment.

On the sample packet, which was enough for 1 application, it did not state to let it sit.  It sort of skipped that part so I applied it and immediately washed it off with water and a washcloth.

Here are the benefits of using it from the Sephora site:

What it is:
A scientifically advanced SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment to target, prevent, and heal problem skin.

What it is formulated to do:
This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin. It works to magnetically draw out dirt and pores with Activated-X Charcoal, leaving skin smooth and healthy-looking. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates 
– Phthalates 

Research results:
Based on consumer trials:
After 1 day of use: 
– 94% felt their skin looked renewed 
– 91% saw an improvement in skin clarity 
– 94% felt it gently cleared their skin 

On day 7 after using it 3 times in a week: 
– 98% felt their skin looked renewed 
– 97% saw an improvement in skin clarity 
– 97% felt it gently cleared their skin


1.2 oz

-ACNECIDIC-6™ 4.4%: A proprietary six-acid blend of AHA and BHA acids perfectly PH balanced to deal with damaged skin, de-clog, and minimize pores, pigmentation, scaring, and breakouts.
-Activated-X Charcoal: An extreme absorption carbon, attracting toxic substances into its mass up to 500 times its volume from all skin types.
-K17-Clay™: Extracts and encapsulates excess sebum oils, bacteria, and toxins in a controlled stasis state.

Water, Kaolin, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Sodium Hydroxide, Eucalyptus Globulus, Mandelic Acid, Charcoal, Parfum [Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool], Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Azelaic Acid, Pyruvic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Maltodextrin, Iron Oxides, Peppermint Oil, Butylene Glycol, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract, Glycerin, Chamoilla Recutita Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Cucumis Sativus Fruit Extract, Hendera Helix Extract, Symphytum Officinale Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.

Since I only had 1 application I can’t vouch for how my skin felt after multiple USES but I can share how it felt after a single use.  REVIVED!  My skin is oily, especially my nose, so after a single application of letting it set maybe 2 minutes my skin felt smooth, tingly and less oily.  I was very impressed.

I am almost tempted to purchase it from BUT the price point.

Price Point

This is a little pricey in my opinion.  For 1.2 oz the cost is $69 bucks!  I don’t know about you but that is a lot of money.  Granted you only apply a thin layer on your face but for those on a budget  – you may have to seek out a cheaper alternative.


If you have the money for this splurge, I do not think it will disappoint.  After only 1 use my face felt smoother and looked brighter.  I give this product 7 out of 10 stars.  The price point and my lack of multiple uses prevents me from giving this a solid 10.

    Hmm, I bet it works, but that’s a bit pricey for me. I would definitely look for a cheaper alternative. It’s always nice to try these samples out, though. #productreviewparty

    I’m such a sucker for new facial treatments that sometimes I contemplate spending a little more for something that really might work. However, this isn’t in my budget for right now 🙂
