Love Your Skin: GLAMGLOW Thirstycleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser Review

I'm sure you're all pretty sick of hearing me complain about how dry my skin is now. Believe me, I"m sick of thinking to myself how dry my skin is! But if any of you have followed me from the beginning of my blogging journey, you may recall that I didn't always have dry skin. In fact, when I was younger I was quite the grease ball so my skin change was a bit surprising. For years I always looked for skincare geared towards combo/oily skin and it was an abrupt change to start looking for products that would remedy my newly parched, dry skin.
I've searched far and wide for remedies that would eliminate dry, flaky patches and dull skin. So during the VIB sale I went browsing the Sephora at my local JCPenny's. Even with all the array of facial cleansers, the Glamglow Thirstycleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser caught my eye. I never delved too much into Glamglow as the only time I did was when I tried a travel size of their ever popular Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment mask (which I really enjoyed but it was a tad too stripping for my skin). However, this cleanser had "thirsty" in its title and I knew it was meant for us dry-skin sistas! I quickly snatched this up and left with my pocket $39.00 USD emptier.
I have to say, I do love Glamglow's packaging. The bottle comes packaged in a beautiful tube that is the same coloring. It looks and feels high quality. Once you remove the product from the cardboard tube, you instantly feel the weight of the bottle. The only caveat with this is that I cannot see the product. So it's a guessing game for you to figure out when you will need a new bottle.
For $39.00 USD you will get five ounces of product. It's a tad bit expensive but this is a mid-end luxury skincare product so you need to take that into consideration. I always feel that I am willing to pay a little more for a product that works and agrees with me. It's a waste of money to purchase all types of drugstore cleansers that don't really agree with what your skin needs.
What's unique about this cleanser is how it works. When you pump it out, it comes out as a thick mud. The directions say two pumps are required for an entire face but I've only been using one and it's been just the perfect amount for me. What you need to do is apply this "mud" all over your face. It'll feel like a mask and a little dry. It also smells like coconut Play-Doh to me; I know, a weird combo, but strangely addicting at the same time! Once you've covered your whole face you will then need to wet your hands and begin massaging the "mud" and with a mix of science and magic the "mud" will begin to foam and cleanse. Then all you need to do is rinse and pat your face dry.
Glamglow boasts a ton of beneficial ingredients in this cleanser. They also state that this formula is free of: parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. According to Sephora's description it has: "rare Brazilian yellow clay to help to remineralize the skin, pure green coconut water to immediately boost skin for intense hydration, olive milk rich in olive lipids and proteins to replenish skin, and plumeria flower blossom extract rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 to restore the skin barrier function. Indian gooseberry revitalizes and restores natural skin clarity while TEAOXI® olive leaf powder delivers natural linoleic acid to maintain moisture."  Fancy, right? 

It's been about a month since I've started using this cleanser and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. My skin doesn't feel stripped and the novelty of having this mud turn into a foaming cleanser is pretty neat. I can't say for sure that this is Holy Grail status but I enjoy it very much and could see myself repurchasing in the future.

Have you tried this cleanser or any of the Glamglow cleansers? I would love to hear about it!

Purchase Glamglow products from Sephora!


  1. i just started using this!!

    1. Yay! I totally thought of you because we have the same skin type! Miss you bby!!

  2. I love a good foaming cleanser! I'll definitely have to look in to this. My skin has been super dry lately, even now that I've been off Accutane for 6 months. I've just been using Cetaphil because it's so gentle and I know that it works. Can't wait to start venturing out into other face washes!
