Welcome to the Part 2 of GLAMGLOW product review 😀
Three days ago I have reviewed two highly raved GLAMGLOW mud mask treatment namely GLAMGLOW Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment and GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment. As the review was quite lengthy, I’ve decided to separate out the bits on GLAMGLOW Brightmud Eye Treatment and review it standalone. So here’s my verdict on the product 🙂
GLAMGLOW Brightmud will be the world’s first “tap-on-wipe-off” eye treatment product. Basically this is a 3-minutes eye treatment to de-puff, reduce dark circles and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The whole concept is to apply on, wait 3-minutes, wipe it off with a tissue paper and off you go!
Unlike Youthmud and Supermud which comes in a jar, Brightmud comes in single-use pack which GLAMGLOW refer as chrome cell. Each box of Brightmud contains 12-chrome cells with two compartments – one for the left eye and one for the right eye. There are pros and cons with this chrome cells. The pros is definitely the convenient, the freshness of the product for each application and each eye will have the same amount of product on. The con is that the amount of product on each compartment is too much for the use of one eye. I will explain more later.
GLAMGLOW Brightmud is a not so much of a conventional mud. It is a non-drying mud and it is powered by four very important ingredient list and technology.
Non-dry TapWipe™ is a bioactive mud consist of powerful actives. It contain natural high bioactivity materials and bentonites to absorb toxin, while delivering high nutrients and minerals.
GLAMGLOW Brightmud contain 14% of Nitroffeine™, which is a powerful proprietary caffeine formula from around the world for under eye and orbital eye lymphatic stimulation, for amazing awakening and fatigue reduction. This ingredient also provides an immediate temporary “zing” sensation.
5% Juvelane™ is a powerful new dimension of revolutionary Titan-Rings, designed to activate retinol-like activity without the disadvantages. This innovative molecular cyclic peptide design is for an instant and visible results in just 3-minutes.
TEAOXI™ Peppermint Leaf
TEAOXI™ Peppermint Technology in the mask will activate sensory TRPM8 Cold Compression to de-puff eyes. It comes with soothing mentone and menthyl ester fatty acids, botanical peppermint with Vitamin A and C that helps the skin to look noticeable smoother and brighter.
I mentioned that each chrome cell is meant for one usage / treatment. I must admit this type of separated compartment with the same amount of product for each eye is a fresh idea and not forgetting to mention the convenient, hygienic and the freshness of the product is well-maintained. I do however find that each compartment contain more than enough product for one eye. I’m not sure if we need to apply this particular amount on one eye area but I do believe there must be a reason behind it. I have been told that some user is using one compartment for both eye and reserve the other compartment for next usage. Personally, I don’t do that. It may be a little too much for just the under eye so I’m also putting Brightmud on the orbital eye area (eye lid) as well. It then makes a lot of sense to me on why the product is package in such way. The amount of product is just nice for under the eye and orbital eye 😀
I don’t use any tool to apply GLAMGLOW Brightmud. I just use my ring finger to gently tap on the mask on to my eye area. Do not rub in. It is not necessary to do so.
The mask feels cooling on my eyes but not tingling at all. I’m thinking it must be the Peppermint Leaf in it. In fact, it is the real peppermint leaf combined with TEAOXI™ Technology that activate a sensor in the body telling the skin to turn cold. So yes. The product trick the body into thinking that it’s cold but in fact the mud is not cold at all. At first I was a bit worried that my eyes will get irritated with the cooling sensation and with Peppermint Leaf all over my eye area. Actually I feel okay. The mud doesn’t get into my eyes. It stays on where I applied the mask on and there was no budging or seeping into my eyes. It does look a bit creepy. I had this on while signing a courier parcel in front of my house haha! Hope I don’t freak the courier guy 😉
The recommended time to have Brightmud on is 3-minutes. I like to have it on for about 5-minutes as I do have dark circles and fine lines that I want to reduce. If you are thinking to do the same, just make sure the mask is not dry. The mask will need to be wipe off with a dry tissue for instant result. If it ever dries down, just gently wet the mask.
I notice that the cooling sensation continues on even after I wipe off the mask. According to GLAMGLOW, this happens because a micro layer of active ingredients continues to work for the next 20-minutes, infusing the skin with Juvelane™ to improve collagen synthesis and Nitroffeine™ to de-puff, eliminate dark circles and stimulate the lymphatic drainage. What this means is eventhough the mask has been removed after 3-minutes, the layer of active ingredients will continue to work on your eye area. This is what I learnt about not washing off the mask with water. If you do, there might not be any continuous work.
I’m sure you are as anxious as me with the result, even after just 3-minutes of having Brightmud on. This is the After. Do take note that the result below is my first usage of Brightmud. Even so I see the appearance of dark circle is reduced, under eye area is smoother, fine lines are soften and less obvious. I really cannot imagine the improvement if I were to use it once a week.
Another very obvious result is my eye lid area. The constant use of eye makeup sort of darken the lid area. I have seen how other GLAMGLOW Brightmud user managed to lighten the lid shade and this is the one thing that I have high hopes on. Well, voila! I managed to brighten my eye lid a bit and the dark hue is visibly lighten. It’s a definitely work in progress for me 🙂
Once again I do feel that the price for Brightmud is a bit on the high side for 12-chrome cells, although I am well aware of the technology and ingredients in it as well as the visibly instant results that I personally experienced. Having said that, it does works as claimed so it really depends on how you think. On another hand I wouldn’t mind splurging on GLAMGLOW as a part of my weekend beauty regimen. I would highly recommend GLAMGLOW to anyone anytime especially Youthmud and Supermud. Some people I know do suffer from severe dark circles and these are the people that need Brightmud. This eye treatment may not be necessary for you if you just have a minor fine lines or minor dark circles. However I know how hard it is to resist curiosity and need for dark circle free days so you can still get this and perhaps try to prolong the life span by using just one compartment from one chrome cell each usage? So instead of getting 12 treatments you can prolonged it to 24 treatments 😀
What say you? Does GLAMGLOW Brightmud intrigue you to splurge and try?
