Question
Is this mask supposed to contain CHUNKS?
Got a sample in a mini tube at Sephora and tried it...was kinda grossed out at these CHUNKS of "stuff" coming out of the tube...Smeared it all over and after rinsing, my face was very soft, but I'm still concerned about what those chunks actually were. Does anyone know?

The chunks are in there for exfoliation purposes. The directions say to wash it off in a circular motion, so that it exfoliates.

answer 2
Wow. Parabens are NOT carcinogens. Carcinogen means "cancer causing". Parabens are preservatives used to inhibit bacteria growth. They started being used to replace formaldehyde, a much more dangerous preservative that used to be the norm as a cosmetic preservative. The 2004 study that started all this hype did not say that parabens caused breast cancer, only that paraben metabolites were found in some tissue samples. There are naturally-occurring phytoestrogens (parabens are phytoestrogens) that we consume in foods that are 10,000 times stronger than the levels of parabens found in cosmetics. I'm all for making informed decisions and being safe, but please do your research. Choosing cosmetics and skincare that is free of parabens means shorter shelf lives and more expense for the consumer while companies scramble to find a viable alternative to something that has never been proven to be unsafe in the first place. All that being said, I do prefer to have the option of choosing what I put on my skin and what I don't. I am just aware that if I choose a product or line without items like parabens or sulfates in them, I will have to pay significantly more for them.

I find the attitude of “oh well it’s in everything anyway, what’s the difference” to be completely ignorant and a dangerous one. Especially, since this is not just some passing concern from a few years ago, there are many studies that are continually being conducted. In fact, just last year (2012), as published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology, The University of Reading in the United Kingdom found that 99% of the tissue samples collected from female breast cancer patients during the study contained at least one paraben, and 60 percent of the samples contained no fewer than five different types of parabens. So, while there might not be definitive proof, there is no denying that there seems to be a strong correlation here. And then we have to hear things like “but keep in mind that they {parabens} are in so many products that we use in our daily life.” Oh really, so that makes it ok? Wakeup, there are so many paraben-free products available on the market today, at Sephora and at your local healthfood stores. The point is, ladies, that we have a CHOICE! So, why not bet on the safe side?

Just adding my two cents on the paraben debate. While I feel it's a personal decision whether to use products with parabens or not, one thing is not up for debate: parabens are cheap preservatives. Very cheap. So I'm a bit annoyed by companies that charge an arm and a leg for their wonderfully concocted products, only to find their choice of preservative to be a paraben. It tends to make me a bit skeptical about their other ingredient choices. I mean, is the formula really that amazing if you choose this route to preserve? Just saying. I expect that from a drugstore brand. Not a high end brand.

The big debate about parabens comes from a few years ago when they first started noticing that parabens were found in breast tissue samples from patients with breast cancer. Because of this people started to worry about them for the obvious reasons. However, they are in almost everything that our bodies come in contact with. Everything from skincare, makeup, laundry detergent, toothpaste, etc. the list goes on and on. They have done studies on the acute, subchronic, and chronic effects in rodents to find out exactly how bad they are for us. The studies indicate that parabens are practically non-toxic. Parabens are rapidly absorbed, metabolized, and excreted through the body. However, some studies do show that methylparaben when on the skin and exposed to UVA/UVB rays can increase photosensitivity and increase skins aging. Other studies show that this is only true under extreme conditions where excessive amounts of methylparaben are applied and UV exposure is at a constant high that isn't the common rate of exposure that we are exposed to every day. My point is that science still doesn't have a definitive answer regarding parabens but most scientists and doctors agree that in small amounts they are not bad. In short it's a matter of opinion wether or not you want to avoid them all together, but keep in mind that they are in so many products that we use in our daily life. A product like this that only is on the skin for 10-20 minutes isn't going to harm you, unless of course you are allergic to something else in the product. Hope this helps.

Parabens may not necessarily cause a bad reaction, but they are known carcinogens.

I've tried both the masks in the black jar and white jar and found that the black jar works best for my skin. I know that the white jar is for acne prone skin, which I do have but when I used it, my skin did not react well to it. So I've stuck with the black jar which, even though is considered as an "aging" mask for glowing skin, actually helps the acne problem that I have with my skin as well.

I have used both masks personally; from my own experience I would probably recommend the Youth Mud for women who are looking for a brighter, cleaner, dewy looking and tighter complexion. So, normal skin without acne issues.
The Detox mask is great for acne prone, hormonal, large pores, oily t-zone, ingrown hairs and just for general purification. So, for problem skin.
Using the Detox mask in the beginning of the week, and then using the Youth Mud to tighten everything up later on in the week seems to work the best. I just use a very potent moisturizer and only do this once a month and it makes a huge difference to my skin.
Hopefully this helps you!

Yes, I have both the Tingling and Orginial Mask and I do LOVE both of them. But if I had to decided between the two, I would go with the orginial white container of GLAMGLOW. They both make your face feel baby smooth, tighten pores, give you a radiant apperance and tighter skin. I just really did not enjoy how bad the black mask tingled. They both do the same thing!!

Question
Did yours have big pieces of black stuff in it?
When I tried my sample of the Glamglow Youthmud, there were big chunks of flat black pieces coming out of the tube mixed in with the mask. Is that normal for this product? Is your product like this too? I read somewhere that these are pieces of leaves, but they were really big, some almost 1/2 inch round. At first, I really thought they were pieces of black plastic. It sounds dumb saying that, but I didn't know what to think. I thought that if it is part of the product, they should be ground up more. Please share if your product was like this, too. I wonder what that stuff is. Do you know? The sample tube didn't have detailed ingredients on it. Thank u so much!

If I were to skip doing this, I would do it in the morning so that my face was freshly exfoliated and ready for makeup.

I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this mask as well! I find that the very best time to apply this is at night after you have removed all your make up. Apply the mask, let it do its marvelous "things" to your skin then go go to sleep . Your skin does its best regenerating at night (that is why a lot of treatment products like retinol are used at night). If you are combination to dry, apply a moisturizer before you go to bed. You will wake up with glowing , beautiful skin! The only time that I venture away from this plan is when I have a special even to go to, then I use it a couple hours prior so my skin looks especially gorgeous. I will Never be without this product!

I would say it depends on the sensitivity. See if you can get a sample and do a patch test just behind the ear and see how your skin is with it. I have sensitivity and it felt like it was burning more than tingling, it also felt very harsh and scrubby when washing off but honestly I had no negative side effects and I used it on my whole face and left it for 20 minutes. So I would definitely recommend a patch test if you are hesitant.
