THE FACIAL IN A JAR
Whether you need to be camera-ready or just feel like a beauty boost, try the much-lauded mud mask from GlamGlow, writes M&S.com editor, Nicola Copping.
Unscrew the lid on the GlamGlow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask and you might be a little surprised: thick dark-grey mud with flecks of what looks like ash doesn’t immediately cry soothing and luxurious fast-track to radiant skin. But appearances can be deceiving: billed as a “facial in a jar”, GlamGlow comes from quite the glitzy background – according to the brand, it is designed for behind-the-scenes use in Hollywood to create glowing, camera-ready skin, blending mud from the Mediterranean sea and tea leaves. When you apply it, the skin feels really rather tingly as it simultaneously sloughs away dead cells and infuses moisture, revealing a refreshed, brighter look once you wash it away after 10 minutes. A great beauty pick-me-up.
