Hello Beauties! I hope you all are having a wonderful day or night wherever you are!
Before going cruelty-free, I used to be a huge fan of Glamglow and their face masks! I felt like these products really helped my skin because each of their masks are formulated to focus in on one problem at a time, making them unique to the skin issue you are trying to confront and tackle. One mask that stood out to me in particular was their Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment, this mask really works to exfoliate the skin— leaving it silky soft and smooth. Unfortunately Glamglow is not cruelty-free, and I have not been purchasing any of their products for quite some time now. Thus, I have been on the hunt for a new product to fill that spot in my cleansing routine. Now, after months of searching, I think I have found an exact dupe for that mask! AND, I have to say, I like the packaging of this product ten times more!
The product I have been loving is the Tarte FRXXXTION Stick Exfoliating Cleanser! Tarte has been killing it in the skin care game as of recently. This cleanser being one of their greatest hits, reaching almost 5 stars on the Sephora website! Even though this cleanser’s directions say to apply to the skin and then rinse of in circular motions, I like to leave it on as a mask for 5-10 minutes and it gives me the same results as its non cruelty-free competitor did! They are almost exact dupes—down to the way that the charcoal color lightens when rinsing with water.
The even better part? Glamglow retails at Sephora for $69.00 ($22.00 for a mini) and the Tarte stick goes for $22.00!! A price cut for a better product, with better packaging (you don’t have to scoop out product with your hands), and to support a cruelty-free brand/product!
I recommend that if you are looking for a product that can be used as a mask to treat surface texture and relieve your skin of all its built up toxins then this is it! All you have to do is roll up the product, apply to the face (or leave in on a mask), and rinse! Another amazing feature of this cleanser is that it is a solid to suds formula— which is ideal for the frequent traveler as it does not need to be squished into a TSA approved bag!
If you try this out, let me know how you like it!
