Glamglow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment Review

Here's a review on Glamglow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment.

I mentioned in one of my posts that I've been overdosing on Hydrating products for the past few months and for the facial mask, this has been my go-to: Glamglow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment. Glamglow is a backstage remedy of Hollywood celebrities because it promises these 'just had a facial' and 'a good night's sleep' effects right after usage, which are pretty much the things they need before facing a crowd. Well, I don't have to face so much people on a daily basis as I'm in front of my computer most of the time, but I do appreciate that instant smooth, hydrating, and plumping effect that I get from this product!


ThirstyMud is the newest from Glamglow-it's a restorative, calming treatment that replenishes your skin with hydrating ingredients and promises to address your short and long- term hydration needs. It features the following proprietary skin care technologies: Dewdration to lock in moisture within the skin, Hydrapack that instantly leaves skin with a smooth, silky, supple feel, and Greenergy to energize the skin, giving it a dewy glow. Glamglow's products are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates.

Yes, I know, Glamglow. LOL.


More about this super hydrating mask after the break!

Product comes in a luxe, gift- worthy packaging-after all, it's almost 4 thousand pesos, but given the price, I don't understand why it doesn't come with a spatula for hygienic usage. :/

Actual product comes in an acrylic jar with a sea blue hue-I love the color because it makes the product easy to spot in my dresser!

ThirstyMud is a sheer, gel- like type of mask, which is reminiscent of the Sleeping Pack of Korean brands. It has a Coconut-y scent that I truly enjoy and it's very concentrated so a little goes a long way-one jar can last for up to 6 months or more, depending on the frequency of usage.


One layer of ThirstyMud

This product can be left on the skin for 15 minutes for a quick hydration boost or overnight for complete repair, whichever way you like it. Personally, I prefer leaving it on for 15 minutes then rinsing it off afterwards because it takes a while to settle unlike Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX (which is Glamglow's closest counterpart in my opinion)-I can't afford to lose sleep over a beauty product and most of all, I don't want to wake up to stained pillow cases the next day!

ThirstyMud leaves a slight tingling sensation in the beginning and then it fades after two to three minutes- the tingling sensation is very relaxing and soothing, unlike the irritating, tingling sensation I get from Glamglow's Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask.

As for the immediate effects, this product gives me really soft, smooth, and fresh- looking skin the moment I wash it off, and my face feels pillowy and bouncy, like a balloon filled with water. However, it's a little tough to rinse out so you'd have to use a foaming facial cleanser to remove it from your skin completely. Oh, this product leaves my skin with a protective, hydrating barrier and it kinda' protects my skin from drying facial cleansers. :)

2 months of consistently using Glamglow at two times per week; My face with face powder with only

I just woke up one day and noticed that my skin's looking healthy, vibrant and quenched! I think this product has boosted my current Hydration- heavy skin care routine and helped me restore my skin's lost glory, although I cannot credit everything to Glamglow because I've been using it along with other pretty good skin care products too! I also noticed that I haven't been getting dry patches on my face and my  skin doesn't get super oily anymore ever since I started using this product!

Since I mentioned that the closest counterpart of this product is Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX, might as well compare the two:

Laneige- cheaper, comes in a much bigger jar
Glamglow- expensive, comes in a much smaller jar

Laneige- settles on the skin quickly
Glamglow- takes around 10 minutes to settle on the skin

Laneige- took around 5-6 months for me to say that it has improved the hydration levels in my skin
Glamglow- took only 2 months for it to improve the hydration levels in my skin

My only qualm is this product is VERY expensive for a mask that has a lot of dupes in Korean brands, in terms of consistency, use, and texture-well at least this product works instantaneously, but Glamglow, can we at least lower the price or beef up the size to justify the cost? It's not even hypoallergenic.

Nonetheless, I love how super hydrating this product is and I think I will buy it again-I even like this product better than Glamglow Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask. This product works for any skin type, especially for those with very dry and oily skin.

9 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Oh wow great product. Very expensive, though

  2. I've tried this once during the BDJ Fair and I can say that it's super effective. I'm really really saving up for this as this is kinda pricey. :/ It has a cooling effect and really clears up dirt. This product is super amazing. No wonder it is pricey. :)

  3. I have tried GlamGlow during the BDJ Fair and I really really love it! If it weren't too pricey and they have smaller sizes, I would definitely buy it. I love its minty feeling. It really made my nose dirt-free. Haha. I'll really save up for it.

  4. If this product is not that expensive i might give this a try. Hehe.

  5. My skin decided to hate me and be a lot dryer recently. I do think that there are a lot cheaper finds out there that promises the same effects. Wouldn't mind if the effect may take longer versus this one which only took you 2 months to see the effect. But It's nice that this product is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. Being a part time packaging designer, I can't help but comment on how I absolutely love the color of its packaging!

  6. I miss using Glamglow but it's very expensive for me. What makes it different is there's really a huge difference when you use their product compared to other brands. One layer doesn't show hmmm and it was even a mud. I miss the tingling sensation it gives though.

  8. BrownOso: Yep. Haha!

    Teri: If I'll buy Glamglow again, it would be this because I found the stinging sensation in the mud variant quite uncomfortable.

    Hanna and abegaill: I hope we'll see trial sizes soon!

    Cath: Part-time packaging designer? That sounds like a cool job. :) Thanks for sharing your insight, btw. :)

  9. Pretty expensive it is! I'm dying to try mud masks. I just love their benefits to the skin. I just want it step by step. Starting from the most affordable. But good quality. :) Hoping to try one one of these days. ;)
