Rodial Glamtox Peel

Rodial and I haven’t been the best of friends really. I’ve not got on brilliantly with the products I’ve tried, and then I have some issues with the morality of the naming of the Crash Diet range… that aside, I was chatting to @CarolineBmakeup on Twitter a few weeks ago and she mentioned  Rodial’s Glamtox Peel mask as being something of a miracle worker. I said it sounded great and a couple of days later I received a tube through the door. If only all things in life were like this eh? I’d like a new house, housekeeper, £1,000,000 and one of those no!no! hair removal thingys please!

Anyway, I digress, the lovely Caroline had arranged for it to be sent over as she was keen to hear my thoughts. Ever the dutiful beauty blogger I was keen to get going.

The Glamtox Peel is a clay mask that claims to reverse the signs of aging in just 10 minutes by firming and lifting, reducing the appearance of lines, reducing stress in the skin and relaxing muscles. Then there’s the fruit acids to refine the complexion and brighten. Apparently!

Well, first thing, I always struggle with this, is how much of the stuff to apply! Clearly in the following picture not enough. You apply a good layer to dry skin. Once dry you rub your face with your fingertips and it all starts rubbing off (messily) and you finish up by rinsing thoroughly with warm water.

It applies nicely, and is creamy with a slightly fruity scent. After a few minutes your face starts to tingle. It’s not unpleasant, but it is very definitely tingly, and I often think with tingly things that you can feel them working. I have absolutely no clue at all if thats true or not though! For your viewing pleasure here I am modelling Rodial Glamtox Peel and my daughter’s Hello Kitty Hairband. At this point in the proceedings it is bone dry and I’m about to start rubbing it off.

.Well, what can I say! As soon as I washed the remaining residue off my face I noticed a difference. My skin was soooo soft for a start. I mean really soft. My skin doesn’t do soft as a rule, but after this it does. I’d say that fine lines were reduced too. I wouldn’t call it a ten minute face lift myself, but there’s no denying that small lines had disappeared and my skin looked tighter (in a good way and not in a dry way I must add).
I don’t know when I’m actually going to learn that taking pictures from this angle makes my nose look enormous! Anyway, here’s my make up free face immediately afterwards. I don’t suppose its an awful lot of use without a before shot? You’ll have to take my word for it, it’s pretty impressive stuff.

The results seem to last a couple of days on me before fading away but you can use this once a week, so save it for a night out, or a special event or similar. For me, I don’t have a lot of special events so I just do it every Thursday when I remember.
There is of course a downside. And that’s the price. It’s £72. That’s priced it right out of my budget range unforunately. However, I do think it’s worth it, I love it and if I could afford to rebuy regularly I would. There are about 20 applications per tube, about £3.60 a go then… yeah, I’d say it was worth it. Perhaps one day when I stop being a stay at home mum and get a job that pays I’ll be able to treat myself to this baby. If you have this kind of money available for skin care I’d say this was a very worthy investment indeed and I’m very grateful to Caroline Barnes for giving me the opportunity to try it out!

    Great review Charlie, sounds fab. I have been looking to review some of the Rodial products and this looks like a great place to start, need to save a few pennies up first. I was looking at the balm cleanser as well. Have you tried this?
