Recently I purchased a glitter mask from the Primark-owned brand Holler and Glow. I mentioned this product in my recent post which was a beauty haul. My first impression is that it could be a dupe to the glam glow glitter mask. It definitely looks similar and Primark have become quite infamous for their dupes, for example the Kim Kardashian contour sticks.
The mask upon application disappointed me, it was much more sheer than I expected and the glitter didn’t really stand out as much as I first thought it would. It also scratched my skin as I applied it because the glitter was quite rough. The smell was also quite unpleasant. What I did like however was the glitter that I could see, it was holographic and was also in cute little star shapes. I would have loved to have seen more of it in the mask.
Drying time of this product was fairly quick which I liked as enjoy peeling off masks and it peeled off much easier than expected which was extremely satisfying. I actually managed to peel it off in one go which I have previously attempted yet failed. I love peel products, especially masks and pore strips! With the pore strips you either love them or hate them and I love them! That may make me gross but I don’t mind that one bit
Once removed, I couldn’t see any major differences with my skin and it didn’t feel any cleaner than it did to start with. I think the mask was definitely fun but I don’t think it’ll be a staple to my skincare routine! I think I’ll definitely use the product up though as several uses can be got from the packet. I was slightly disappointed by this product but I can’t complain with something so inexpensive.
Compared to the GlamGlow mask, it really fell short. The glamglow mask is a lot more opaque and the glitter really stands out because of it. It also doesn’t smell bad. On the downside, the glam glow mask does take a lot longer to dry down making the dupe triumph in that area. As with results, I do see an improvement and it’s significantly greater than any difference received from the Holler and Glow.
If you want to add fun to your skincare routine then Holler and Glow is the budget friendly product but if you’re looking for results, you may want to dish out for the pricier original, because in this case, you pay for what you get!
Have you ever tried a Holler and Glow product and how was your experience with it?
