GLAMGLOW Supermud Now Comes in Value Size (for those who can’t get enough)
In case you haven’t heard of GLAMGLOW, this company is known mostly for their mud masks, many of which are especially popular among backstage MUAs working at movie sets, runway shows, etc. These quick-fix formulas were designed to improve skin clarity and radiance in mere minutes. I’ve been a GLAMGLOW fan for years, but because their products are so powerful, I only ever use them when my skin is in really sad condition or when I need a boost before a special event. Supermud has been one of my personal favorites for treating breakouts, and the company is finally offering it in value size, so all the hardcore fans can get a bang for their buck and enjoy special savings.
SUPERMUD® Activated Charcoal Treatment ($59) was developed to address blemishes, congested pores, redness, scars, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. The formula contains six acids [glycolic, salicylic, lactic, mandelic, pyruvic, and tartaric], activated charcoal, a blend of antioxidant and antimicrobial botanicals, and of course mud. It is one of the brand’s best-sellers and the winner of Allure Reader’s Choice award. The ability to make the skin instantly brighter and cleaner is not different from other GLAMGLOW products, but it’s definitely something that will surprise you if you’ve never used these before. This dramatic instant effect is what makes Supermud a backstage favorite.
GLAMGLOW skincare is known for being highly potent, and everyone tolerates it differently. My face always stings for at least 5 minutes after the application, which is unpleasant to be honest, but I feel like the result is worth it. Whenever I have some breakouts going on, this treatment blasts them with acids and healing botanicals, and they tend to subside within the next couple of days. I kinda hate the dreaded ‘no pain no gain’ approach, but that’s exactly the case with Supermud for me. I haven’t found anything that works faster, though.
You will LOVE it if:
- Your skin is prone to breakouts.
- You have enlarged, congested pores.
- You have oily or combination skin.
- You like mud masks.
- You want quick results and don’t mind the tingle.
You will HATE it if:
- You only use all-natural skincare.
- You prefer to buy from cruelty-free companies.
- You avoid added fragrance in skincare.
- You find the tingling sensation very uncomfortable.
- You have very dry or sensitive skin.
- You are on a budget.
- You are sensitive to any of the ingredients.

GLAMGLOW products are not exactly cheap, and anything that makes them more affordable is something we can all appreciate. The new value sized Supermud comes in a simple no-frills squeeze tube so you won’t be getting the same gorgeous hefty jar to display on your vanity. What you will be getting is roughly a 60% discount on the product inside. The standard 1.7 oz jar usually retails for $59, while the new 3.5 oz tube is currently being sold at Sephora for $79 as an online exclusive offer. As for me, now that I have this big tube, I will probably be using the mask a lot more often instead of saving it for special nights. My skin loves it, and my wallet can live with the new price if I have to purchase a new tube sooner.
