say hello to glamglow’s newest treatment: powermud!

One of the earliest beauty products I can remember using were those .99 cent mud masks they sold at drugstores--the ones that came in funky colors with bizarre flavors like peppermint, mango, and green tea--does anyone remember those?!? (Oh sh*t, I just found them.) Anyway, I didn't have any real skin concerns when I was nine years old, I just used them because I thought it was a very luxurious, grown-up thing to do. Fun fact: I passed them out to my friends one year during Halloween in loo of candy. Foreshadowing of a future beauty editor or complete weirdo? I'll let you decide.

Since then, face masks have come a long way, and the best example of this is the already-legendary skincare brand Glamglow. Originally formulated for Hollywood starlets, the secret-miracle-mask soon became the not-so-secret-miracle-mask when it launched into the beauty stratosphere for all of us norms to buy. Glamglow Supermud and Youthmud Treatments became overnight cult beauty products, and over the past few years, the brand has expanded by releasing (my personal favorites) Brightmud and Thirstymud Treatments to complete the caboodle. Now, the brand is welcoming a new member into its family: Powermud.

Say hello to the world's first dual-action, deep-cleansing, mud-to-oil treatment that fuses mud with oil to gently rid skin of weekly dirt, oil, and makeup buildup. But why mud and oil? You see, mud clarifies the skin, while oil delivers essential fatty acids and minerals. Basically: Mud + Oil = Flawless skin.

So what are you waiting for? Pick yours up here!
