This Sephora favorite retails on their website for $75.00. This will get you a lovely 50g/ 1.7oz jar of product. This works out to a $1.50 per gram of product cost. The product itself smells like licorice and applies with a lovely cooling sensation. Use thin coats or you will end up with a chunky mess. The mud dries quickly and does leave my skin soft, with smaller appearing pores.
I really enjoy GlamGlow products. The packaging is flashy and luxe, it feels as though you have something special in your hands. However, I really dislike the jar format. I don’t like the bacteria transfer from my hands to the jar and so on. The easiest way to avoid this is to use a clean spoon to scoop the product out for use.
I didn’t like the licorice smell. There wasn’t anything overpowering about it, I was just reminded of bad decisions made in my younger years involving Sambucca. Personal associations aside, this product did a great job of making my skin look fantastic.
