Review - GlamGlow Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer


You’ve probably heard of GlamGlow, they’re all over Instagram and their Supermud Clearing Treatment is a holy grail product (apparently even Denzel Washington uses it?!). GlamGlow are now diversifying and expanding their skincare offering into moisturizers, I was a little sceptical of this at first, I’ve seen way too many brands dip their toe into another category when they should stick to what they do best.

However I was intrigued by their latest offering, the Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer. Not a fan of the name but I was intrigued by the reviews online, with people raving that this is finally a mattifying and oil-controlling moisturizer that works. At £39 for 50ml I would certainly hope so!

The consistency of the product was really surprising, it’s actually a balm rather than a cream or gel. Rubbing this between your hands transforms it into more of an oil/cream which immediately sinks into your skin. The overall effect is mattfified skin with a hint of glow, I even had a few compliments in work about how nice my skin looked. The biggest benefit was that my makeup definitely stayed on for much longer, at the end of a 9 hour day my makeup still looked fresh, a genuine first for me! I’ll continue to try this for a few weeks to give it a thorough test but so far, so good. I’ve also seen a few people use this as a primer instead of a moisturizer so I might play about with the application and see how that goes. Will keep you updated!
