Moving right along on my face mask kick – I had a brilliant idea! Why not put together a list of dupes for Glamglow face masks? For anyone not familiar with Glamglow, they are a really popular high-end brand sold at Sephora. They are known for their jar face masks in an array of colors and skin solutions. But instead of paying $69 per jar, why not try out affordable Glamglow face mask dupes and get the skincare benefits at a fraction of the cost!
I’ve actually never tried Glamglow even though I’ve heard amazing things because I can’t bring myself to spend $70 on a face mask. If you don’t know by now, I’m alllll about affordable products and truly believe there are just as great of products available to us who are on a budget! Now don’t get me wrong, I will definitely splurge on things here and there but personally, splurging on a face mask just isn’t worth it to me. I would rather spend my money elsewhere but if it’s worth it to you – that’s great! You do you 🤗
So taking six of Glamglow’s most popular face masks, I went on the hunt to find affordable Glamglow face mask dupes and drum roll please….not only did I find dupes but they are all a fraction of the price of one Glamglow mask at $69 a jar! Let’s get into these affordable Glamglow face mask dupes!
Category #1 – Hydrating
This category includes the blue Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment mask. A great dupe for this mask is one that is ideal for dull and dry skin that provides moisture and extreme hydration. I’ve talked about this dupe before in my 8 best face masks under $15 post I did a few weeks back.
DUPE —> e.l.f Hydrating Gel Mask – $12.00 [YOU SAVE $57]
This mask is a great alternative! It’s absolutely a hydrating mask hence the name – duh! The other feature I really like is that this is a gel mask which will calm and cool the skin and really allow the product to sink in which is what you want! In total, you would save $57 with this dupe!
Category #2 – Firming
This category includes the purple Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment mask. The benefits of this mask include smoothing the skin and tightening the appearance. It’s ideal for those dealing with fine lines and wrinkles.
DUPE –> Freshmade Coconut Mask – $13.00 [YOU SAVE $56]
I found this gem on Ulta’s website! Coconut is a great ingredient to include in your skin care. It provides your skin with lots of moisture. Best of all, it’s a firming treatment mask so it will help to reveal more youthful looking skin! In total, you would save $56 with this dupe!
Category #3 – Skin-Clearing
This category includes the white Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment mask. This one is for all my acne-fighting peeps! Whether you deal with blemishes on a regular basis or maybe just around that time of the month, using a mask like this will be great to help reveal smooth and clearer skin.
DUPE –> The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask – $11.31 [YOU SAVE $57]
This is another mask I included in my 8 best face masks under $15 post. I love The Body Shop as a brand as a whole. They have amazing products for the skin and their face mask definitely follows suit. My favorite thing about this dupe is that it includes tea tree oil which has AMAZING skin-clearing properties. In total, you would save $57 with this dupe!
Category #4 – Brightening
This category includes the orange Glamglow Flashmud Brightening Treatment mask. People with all skin types and conditions can benefit from a mask like this. It will improve your skin texture, tone and surface revealing a brighter and more balanced complexion.
DUPE –> Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask – $14.99 [YOU SAVE $54]
This is almost a complete 100% dupe! Even the packaging looks similar. This is a great find on Ulta. I love all the natural ingredients this mask includes and you can see on the front of the packaging that it is for brightening. The pumpkin removes dehydrated cells to brighten and smooth. The honey soothes and heals to clarify and restore balance. In total, you would save $54 with this dupe!
Category #5 – Anti-Aging
This category includes the black Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment mask. This mask is similar to their purple one. The purple will do more tightening and the black one will do more smoothing and pore-minimizing. This is another mask ideal for fine lines and wrinkles resulting in a more youthful complexion.
DUPE –> VIA Cosmedics Anti-Aging Peptide MegaMud – $15.95 [YOU SAVE $53]
This mask does so much! One of the biggest benefits to this mask that the Glamglow one doesn’t have is the peptides. These peptides boost collagen and stimulate skin repair to give your skin an overall boost of regeneration! It also includes some great natural ingredients like green tea, pumpkin, pineapple and pomegranate. In total, you would save $53 with this dupe!
Category #6 – Detoxifying
This category includes the green Glamglow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment mask. Detoxifying masks are some of my favorite masks because I’m always wanting my skin clean and clear as often as possible. I love the feeling of getting rid of all the build up. This is another universal mask that anyone can benefit from.
DUPE –> L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask – $9.28 [YOU SAVE $59]
Last but not least, L’Oreal comes through for the win! I’ve included this mask in several posts recently including my affordable spa day at home post. I’ve talked about it several times because it’s really that good! I love that it infuses charcoal which has excellent detoxifying properties to help get rid of all the dirt and impurities trapped in your skin. In total, you would save $59 with this dupe.
I hope this guide was helpful in recommending great alternatives to some high-end skin care products. Who doesn’t love a good dupe anyways?! You could actually buy all 6 of these affordable mask dupes for around $76 which is almost the price of one Glamglow mask!!

Thanks for your post. Just bought the Via mask.
Awesome Erin! Let me know what you think of it 🙂 Have you tried the black glamglow one before?

I truly appreciate your opinion however if you have never tried GlamGlow masks then this isn’t an honest comparison. I understand that some product brands charge simply due to the brand name however GlamGlow isn’t as big as, say, L’Occitane, Clinique or Estée Lauder, who can slap a price tag on jar and their loyal customers will pay their prices. I don’t understand the seemingly personal attack to sway your readers away from their products.
Hi Angela, thanks for your opinion and feedback. I’m in no way trying to attack the brand but just trying to find affordable alternatives to their masks. The content that I post about is almost exclusively about affordable beauty products and providing my readers options on how to find the best products for their money.
I’ve been using the ELF hydrating mask three times a week on my 72 year old face and it’s great. I can definitely see an improvement in both hydration and skin tone. I love almost all the ELF products I’ve tried to date, including makeup items, all of them at an amazing price. Of course, not all of them have lived up to their promise but then neither have Elizabeth Arden products and ole Liz charges triple or more for her stuff.
Hi Mandy, that’s great to hear the mask is working out for you! Elf is such a great brand but like any brand has hits and misses. At least you are saving some money with their products if they don’t work out 🤷🏼♀️ That’s always a plus for me!
Was reading your article because I finally tried a sample I had lying around of GlamGlow Flashmud, loved it, and can’t find it anywhere. Was looking at your Andalou brightening ” dupe,” but the ingredients list is entirely different. It might be a fantastic product with similar results, but calling it a “dupe” is disingenuous.
