Y'all know I don't play when it comes to my skin. My skin care routine is awesome, but I needed something to clear my pores--really clean those suckers out. I've tried a metric butt ton of scrubs and have used enough Biore Pore Strips to circle the Earth twice, but so far--nothing has been able to deliver. I thought I'd be stuck with strawberry nose forever, until a super hero saved the day. 

Okay, not a literal super hero because a) they don't exist and b) if they did, Commissioner Gordon ain't going to fire up the Bat Signal because my pores are dirty. I'm talking about SUPER MUD. Glam Glow's Super Mud Clearing Treatment is now officially a Product I Can't Live Without.

I was at Sephora in JCP at University Mall this weekend--I took my mom, who's never been to a Sephora and was super giddy the entire time (that's another story). As usual, my girls at Sephora were super helpful and hooked me up with a sample of Super Mud to take home. Man, I love Sephora. Where else will they make you a sample of anything you want in the store? And it's not just for me because I'm RADIO FAMOUS; they do it for everyone. I heart Sephora FOR LIFE.

Anyway... I'd been dying to try Super Mud since I first read about it online. Here's how Sephora describes Super Mud:

What it is:
A scientifically advanced SUPER-MUD™ clearing treatment to target, prevent, and heal problem skin.

What it is formulated to do:
This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight all common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin. It works to magnetically draw out dirt and pores with Activated-X Charcoal, leaving skin smooth and healthy-looking.

Glam Glow's website also touts the product's awesomeness, and here's what really sold me. Just check out this description:

NEW PORE-MATRIX™ Our Activated-X Charcoal is an Xtreme absorption carbon, attracting toxic substances into its mass up to 500 times its volume from all skin types, within the deepest & toughest areas. Our new proprietary K17-Clay™ will better extract & encapsulate excess sebum oils, bacteria & toxins in a controlled stasis state, revealing a Pore-Matrix™ of extraction dots & areas, ready to be washed away for seemingly poreless skin.

WHAAAAAAAAT. Pore Matrix Technology? It seemed too good to be true; I couldn't tell if this was real life or some sort of beauty science fiction. Like Star Trek, but for your face.

I had to boldly go where no woman has gone before (sorry, nerding out right now). After I scored my Super Mud sample at Sephora, I rushed home to try it out. I made a bee line for the bathroom and IT WAS ON.

Super Mud goes on a dark color and lightens as it dries. It smells like licorice which is a little gross but I'm willing to endure anything for clean skin. I watched my Super Mud mask dry, and when it was done I was in shock. EVERYTHING THEY PROMISED WAS TRUE.

I saw tiny dark circles all over my face--the activated charcoal Pore Matrix face wizards vacuumed out all the gunk that was hiding in my seemingly clear skin. I couldn't believe it; not only did Super Mud WORK, but it was mesmerizing. I think I stared at my face for a solid 15 minutes after the mask dried. Take a look at my results.

Super Mud is incredible. I can't wait to get back to Sephora and buy a full size of this miracle product. I can't say enough positive things about it; this mask changed my life. I've had clogged up pores on my nose for YEARS, and Super Mud saved the day in one application. Glam Glow's Super Mud Clearing Treatment is THE REAL DEAL, y'all. I'm in love.
