Last night I treated myself to a bit of a pamper sesh - I got my hair done (more on that later!), then came home and slathered on a face mask. I opted to use Sephora's Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying* ($24 CAD/2.03 oz), and I'm here to tell you that I'm thoroughly impressed! I think we just found a more affordable option that's comparable to the cult favourite GlamGlow mask!
This mud mask from Sephora has a very thick texture, just like mud! This formula combines zinc and copper to purify, white clay to soften, and orange peel extract to lightly exfoliate. Simply massage the mask into your skin for a minute, and then sit back and relax. This mask works quickly, so you don't have to wait around for ages to see results. The mask will start to harden and change colours, from dark grey to a lighter grey (see my mask selfie below!). I love the light exfoliation that I got from this mask when I was rinsing it off - not too strong, but it still gets the job done!
I noticed benefits as soon as I rinsed off this mask - my skin felt smooth & soft, and my complexion was had an undeniable radiance to it. I could still see the benefits the next morning! Usually face masks will offer temporary benefits, so I was really pleasantly surprised to find that this mask actually seemed to make a lasting difference to my skin!

If you're a fan of the famous GlamGlow masks, but not a fan of that super high price tag, then I think that this new mud mask from Sephora will be your new bff. I absolutely love how clear and glowing my skin is after using this mask. Stop by your local Sephora store to ask for a sample, or just go ahead and pick up a jar, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
