BEAUTY REVIEW: Glam Glow Dupe?


Glam Glow Dupe?

I’m a fan of Glam Glow – just read about my review here – but it is quite expensive. It’s my treat face mask for special events. I recently came across Derma|E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask while perusing the aisles in Priceline. It cost me $35 so is half the price of Glam Glow.

The box states that this mask is cruelty- free, gluten-free, GMO-free and recyclable.

The mask claims to purge pores of deeply rooted toxins and exfoliate away micropollutants.

Similarly to Glam Glow, charcoal is used to draw out toxins from the skins surface down to the pores. Kaolin and Bentonite clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.

The mask is obviously the same colour as Glam Glow’s Super mud due to the fact both are clay masks.

I liked this mask BUT Glam Glow will always be my favoured of the two. Why?

Well, number one reason, being that this mask stained my skin a bit which was really difficult to get off.

Number two reason is that Glam Glow works slightly better. When I used Glam Glow, I could see the mask working. I could literally see a couple of black heads that were pulled out by the clay. I didn’t experience that with the Derma E mask.

The mask does work it just doesn’t work as well as Glam Glow. If you find Glam Glow a little pricey then this is a good alternative. It’s easy to put on. I didn’t use a lot to cover my face. The packaging is actually easy to use than Glam Glow’s tubs, which I constantly seem to end up with heaps of product under my nails.

Would I buy this again?

Yes, I would but I will also be purchasing a dark coloured face cloth and will make sure to have a lot of hot water on stand by to ensure my skin doesn’t stain again.
