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.
