I am sure you are all fully aware by now if you read my blog on a regular basis that I have very dry and dehydrated skin. The last couple of months my skin has been the bane of my life it is always very dry and dehydrated but it had become extremely dry and dehydrated and I am also suffering from bad breakouts too, but the dryness and dehydration had become a real problem.
One of my lovely friends kindly bought me the Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment for Christmas 2015 and I was absolutely over the moon because I had wanted to try it for such a long time, I couldn't wait to use it and since I have used it a few times I thought I would share my thoughts on it with you.
Once I opened the box it folded out to reveal a leaflet all about the Glamglow Thirstymud and it's ingredients, how they help the skin and how the treatment can be used, it is very detailed information but also easy to read and didn't blind me with science like some skincare product leaflets do.
Once inside the box, the Glamglow Thirstymud is housed in the box and is a glass jar with blue and silver detailing, I like the packaging it's nice and bright and different from any of my other skincare products.
The Thirstymud can be used 3 ways -
✿ Daytime - Leave the mask on for 10 - 20 minutes allowing the product to absorb into the skin, tissue off and massage the remaining product into the skin or remove with water.
✿ Night Time - Apply a thin layer all over the skin and leave to sink into the skin overnight.
✿ In Flight - Apply at the beginning of the flight and leave for the duration.

The first thing I noticed about the Thirstymud was the scent, it smells amazing and has a coconut scent with a sweet undertone almost like chocolate and is a lovely scent, it isn't overpowering at all. The Thirstymud is beige in colour and has a gel like consistency, it rubbed into my skin effortlessly. The first time I used the Thirstymud I used it as a 15 minute face mask in the morning after cleansing my skin, I applied the Thirstymud to my skin and massaged it in and left it for 15 minutes before removing with a flannel (face cloth) that I had run under hand hot water and wrung out. As soon as I applied the Thirstymud my skin started to tingle and felt instantly cooling, it didn't hurt it just tingled and continued to tingle and feel very cooling throughout the time I left it on, it felt lovely especially as I used it in the morning, it was a nice fresh feeling and made me feel energised. Once I had removed the mask I was blown away with the results, my skin looked and felt so much better immediately, it looked smooth and glowing and felt incredible, I was absolutely thrilled, I haven't ever had that kind of result from any other face mask I've used.
The second time I used the Thirstymud I used it as an overnight treatment and applied it to my face after my evening skincare routine. Once again my skin tingled and felt lovely and cooling, the mask spreads nicely and I don't need to use a lot of product which is brilliant because it is an expensive product but a little does go a long way. In the morning after using the Thirstymud overnight my skin felt absolutely incredible and before I got out of bed I said to Simon my partner "feel my face" because it felt so smooth and supple, when I saw my face I was completely thrilled, my skin was glowing and looked amazing, so smooth and fresh and I'm sure my pores didn't look as visible either.
I absolutely adore the Thirstymud and cannot recommend it highly enough, if you have dry or dehydrated skin or both like I do this will be perfect for you, my skin looked so much better after the first time I used it and I have never had results like that from any other face mask I've tried and I have tried a lot of face masks. I suffer with sensitive, eczema prone skin and didn't experience any problems at all when using the Thirstymud either as a mask or an over night treatment. The mask is easy to apply, spreads over the skin effortlessly and removed with ease, I adore it and cannot recommend it highly enough.
The only negative I can think of is the price, it isn't cheap at £49.99 but I have found it on offer for £39.99 on the Look Fantastic website HERE and I have also found an amazing gift set on the Feel Unique website HERE the set contains a full size Thirstymud (50ml) a 15ml Supermud, a 30ml Thirstycleanse cleanser and a brush to apply the masks for just £41.29 (worth £95.00) and even better, if you use the code FEELMVC15 you get a further 15% off bringing the price down to £35.10 which is an incredible price (ends 21/02/16) I found out about this deal after reading Beautylymin's blog so thank you lovely for the heads up.
