Mask Wednesday - Glamglow x My Little Pony #GlitterMask Pink Glitter GravityMud Firming Treatment

I am soooo excited for this week's mask you guys!!! Seriously, when I saw a pink glitter mask from Glamglow and My Little Pony, I HAD to have it!

I know some people think the glitter masks are stupid; but, I love glitter and I love masks, so it seemed like a good idea to me! We get so excited about fun new makeup releases, so why can't skincare be fun and cute too?!

I was pretty tempted to buy the black glitter Glamglow mask when it was released; but, resisted and I'm really glad I waited now (because pink is waaay better than black!) I know Too Faced released a pink glitter mask too; but, I didn't like that it was only on the Too Faced website and I hated the name of it so it wasn't one I wanted to purchase.

I also looooove My Little Pony - my sister and I watched it when we were kids all the time (I still have all the original series and movie on DVD), so while I love the original so much, the new My Little Ponies are adorable and I have totally watched the new series too!

Glamglow x My Little Pony #GlitterMask GravityMud Firming Treatment ~ $75.00 CAN for 50 ml. How fabulous—serious skincare, now in glitter… with #PONYPOWER! This mask features all the benefits of the original GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment, now in glitter to take it to the next level in shades inspired by the iconic ponies. This holographic sparkle treatment delivers mega-targeted ingredients like a TEAOXI® complex of licorice and marshmallow leaf that help make skin’s contours feel firmer and look more defined after just one shimmering use. Serious skincare can be fun. 

This mask comes in 3 different colours - Pink mask for Pinkie Pie, Purple for Twilight Sparkle, and Black for Princess Luna! Clearly, I had to pick the PINK mask! 

This mask is the regular Glamglow GravityMud Firming Mask formula, which is normally a silver mask. This mask is meant to target firmness, elasticity, and pores. I have actually tried this formula before (in Blue, with Sonic the Hedgehog) and I did like it in that formula!

I can't get over just HOW pink this mask is! I was so excited when I opened this and saw the color of it! And it's so glittery too! I haven't been this excited about a mask in a long time!

To use this mask: wash face, apply a generous layer of the mask (try to avoid your hairline and eyebrows), wear for 20 - 30 minutes until the mask is fully dry (I wore mine for about 30 minutes), once the mask is dry, peel the mask from the edges, rinse off any excess with warm water. This is recommended to use this mask twice a week.

The mask comes with a little brush so it was really easy and not messy to sweep all over the face. The mask adhered really well to the skin so you don't have to worry about it glooping off your chin or anything (I've had that happen with other masks and it is as unpleasant as it sounds!) And, this mask dries down nicely too - it does firm up on the skin; but, doesn't have a tight or uncomfortable feeling on the skin.

This mask peeled off really easily in one go! It did not hurt or irritate the skin at all to peel off - it was very gentle. I wore mine for about 30 minutes and did has a few little patches left. I probably should have worn this for 35-40 minutes as I did make it a thicker mask in some spots!

Also, to try and address some common concerns - the glitter did not irritate or bug my skin at all. It was fully inside the gel of the mask, so it wasn't poking or scratching the face at all. It is cosmetic grade glitter so it's not going to harm your skin. Also, this mask did not leave my face pink either.

I will say that after taking this mask off, where I had to wipe the excess mask off I did have a few glitter pieces that stuck around on my face (and we all know that once glitter sticks to something, it can be persistent). And, the next day my husband pointed out a few pieces of glitter in my hair (I didn't completely avoid my hairline I guess). But, they did wipe of with some Micellar Water and a cotton pad.

Overall, this was a really fun mask to use - I personally love when skincare is new and exciting. Did I mention that this mask smells delicious?! Glamglow masks smell amazing - this has a slightly sweet smell to it and I love it! 

I did think that this mask left my skin looking bright and fresh - brightening isn't one of the mentioned benefits of this mask; but, it did leave my skin looking really nice. My skin felt clear and refreshed! I think in terms of seeing firming and fine line benefits, you may need to use this twice a week for a while as recommended. I don't have defined wrinkles so it isn't a measure I can use to talk about. Personally, while I like firming masks, it's not a major skincare concern of mine so I tend to cycle through more masks as opposed to using the same mask a couple of times a week (I have so many to use, too - if I had less I would use this more often!)

I do think $75 for a mask is fairly pricey, I wish they offered the glitter masks in the smaller mask size to make trying this out a little more affordable. My skin did look nice after using this mask, so for me it was a good purchase! If you don't have $75 to spend on a mask I don't suggest saving everything to try this, but if you have the means, want the good selfie and like Glamglow, this mask is fun to use and did make my skin look good! 

What do you think? Is this mask something you would try out?

    While I would love to try this mask, I just put myself on a no-buy, so it's a no-go for me. :-(
