Claytox is a carefully balanced four-clay blend specifically developed to provide an ultragentle skin dexotification for a maximum yet delicate cleanse."

These five face masks from Glamglow seem to be the best on the market considering all the hype from consumers, makeup artists, and beauty editors. With the steep price tag at $69 dollars is it really worth the money? I recently tried my first Glamglow product a couple weeks ago when I got a sample of the Flashmud Brightening Treatment Mask in my Ipsy Glambag. After having it for a week I finally used it while in the bath. 

The consistency was thick, but not too much. The mask tingled a lot, but I happen to like that feeling. I left it on my face for about 30 minutes while I soaked in the tub. I washed the mask off using my hands and warm water. When I got out of the bath and towel-dried my face, it felt very clean, tight, and shiny. I was highly impressed and loved getting to try this one. 

I would definitely re-purchase the orange, however I'd really like to try the rest of the masks before I drop a large wad of cash on a small jar. I have previously used a few different masks from LUSH, but the fact that they expire with a short amount of time I never end up finishing a jar. However, $7 is a lot cheaper than the one for $69! 

What face masks are some of your favorites? Let me know if you've ever tried some of the Glamglow masks, I'd love to hear more.
