Hello my second ever VoxBox.

I’ve been meaning to branch out with masks, as I’ve been using (and reusing) my Herbivore Blue Tansy & Innisfree Volcanic Clay combo to death. This swooped in just in time.

olayclay1This was the Olay VoxBox, a winner, if I say so myself. Love both products.

It’s saying something that I can get excited about cleansers and masks, which tend to lean boring in my spectrum of daily beauty products. But hey, what works works.

olayclay2Nice and simple. Easy to use. And best of all – travel friendly.

Most clay masks I’ve used came in either huge tubs or heavy, metallic containers, and while I do love excess & sturdiness, it’s hard to find the perfect clay mask for traveling. I usually have to make do with a foil sample or a hastily-packed-sample-in-a-contact-case… that sometimes dried out mid-travel.

This feels like a good mask for traveling. It’s not messy like some stick-form products can get, and it’s a good decent size.

olayclay3How to use 🙂 As simple as it gets.

I personally like to get the tub running while I apply this. The warm steam opens up my pores.

olayclay5So here’s the embarrassing part.

I initially didn’t realize this was a cap. Was just fascinated by how smooth the product was and wondered if this was water-activated as it just didn’t seem to be getting onto my skin…

Well. It’s a cap. Do not be foolish like I was. Thank god no one was around to see it.

olayclay6Here’s the product sans cap. Still lovely and smooth….but actually goes on skin as opposed to its plastic counterpart.

There’s a nice fruity scent to the mask that’s not overpowering.

olayclay7On application, the mask turns your face into one of an Oompa Loompa. It’s not chalky, goes on smooth, and does its job without completely depleting your skin of moisture.

Best of all, it left my skin glowing after rinsing. Some clay masks briefly irritate my cheeks and nose area, but this didn’t flare up my rosacea. And my skin wasn’t dried out the next morning, so a win overall!

GlamGlow – DreamDuo Mask Review

mask1


Price: $59

(bought during Sephora 20% off, which brought it down to: $47.2)


This was the first GlamGlow product I bought out of my own pocket. I’ve only encountered this brand through samples, subscription DS, and the one cleanser I was gifted a million years ago. It’s pricey. So when I received a sample of DreamDuo, I was all set to use it up and forget about it.

But alas, I really liked it.

mask2This is a two-parter mask. There’s a step 1 and step 2, each of which uses different portions of the mask.

There’s “Dream Serum = Step 1” and “Dream Seal = Step 2.”

mask3Why hello you sexy expensive thing.

mask4Not that big, considering what you paid for.

There’s only 0.68oz (20ml) of each treatment.

mask6Pretty. Very chrome.

mask7DreamDuo is a night treatment.

Step 1: Apply DREAM SERUM (pearl) evenly on clean face and let absorb into skin for about 30 seconds.

Step 2: Follow with DREAM SEAL (gray)

mask8A plastic cover for sanitary reasons.

Left (pearl) is DREAM SERUM, right (gray) is DREAM SEAL. (Don’t know why I’m capitalizing; I’m being led astray by the descriptions on the box.)

mask9DREAMSERUM (pearl) is a melt-in face serum that infuses antiaging antioxidants into the skin, while supercharged essential vitamins support an even, flawless complexion.

DREAMSEAL (gray) is a nourishing moisture boost of hyaluronic acid and mozuku green algae that plumps and recharges skin’s glow.

mask5DREAM SERUM feels like a mildly sticky gel. It glides around but is absorbed pretty quickly. Smells strongly of orange creamsicle and toffee.

DREAM SEAL is tackier, a bit more cream-like than the pearl serum. It takes longer to absorb but once it’s absorbed, my skin doesn’t feel tacky.

The fragrance lingers, so if you’re sensitive to scent, avoid this product. I personally like the creamsicle scent.

mask6My skin remains moisturized and non-dry/non-flaky in the morning now. I do think it’s pricey for what you get, so I may only use this in the harsher winter months where nothing else really helps.

Interestingly enough, this doesn’t feel hydrating upon application. I’m surprised it lasts so well over the night.

PS: This is a treatment by the way, so it wouldn’t really work as a makeup moisturizer. It’s too tacky!
