I absolutely love the Glamglow mud masks – in fact, the original, in the black packaging, is my go-to for when my skin starts to misbehave. As pricey as it is, the hype is real. And, yes, it really does work.
So I was intrigued when I saw Glamglow’s latest release – the Dreamduo Overnight Transforming Treatment – and was excited to put it to the test.
The large-sized tub has two sections inside for a two-step treatment. The first, called the Dreamserum, is a pearlescent serum infused with anti-ageing oxidants and essential vitamins, and the second, the Dreamseal, is of a more creamy consistency, which promises to plump and hydrate the skin. It claims to be suitable for all skin types.
Having used it for more than a month now, I can say I quite like it.
At a time when layering the skin with multiple products has become quite the norm, this two-step process makes the night-time skincare routine quite simple, and provides effective results.
The Dreamserum has quite a thin consistency – and even though it feels a little bit sticky at first, it sinks right into the skin. The slightly thicker, grey Dreamseal is intensely hydrating and leaves the skin feeling plumped and incredibly soft.
The test of a good night cream is how the skin feels in the morning. Even though I have oily skin, I sometimes wake up with my skin feeling stretchy and dry. With this one, though, I had no issue, as my skin felt soft and supple in the mornings, too.
Over the past four weeks, not once did this cause me break me. In fact, I feel that my skin has become a lot smoother and slightly brighter (that could also be the Vitamin C serum I add to the mix). This is one skincare product that is totally worth the time and money investment.
• The Glamglow Dreamduo Overnight Transforming Treatment costs Dh320, and is available at Sephora.
