  • Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment ($105, Sephora)
    7 / 9 Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment ($105, Sephora)

    This detoxifying mask has a cult-like following and it’s not difficult to see why. French sea clay absorbs dirt and draws out impurities to deep cleanse pores while antioxidant-rich ingredients like green tea and camellia leaf extracts work to brighten dull skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes and gently massage the exfoliating bits into skin as you rinse off with water. As its name suggests, it does tingle when applied so do a patch test first if you have sensitive skin.
