What Was The Best-Selling Face Mask At Sephora In 2016? This Product Is A Hit For Good Reason

All the end of year lists are coming in, and wouldn't you know it? GLAMGLOW's SUPERMUD is Sephora's top-selling mask of 2016. It's quite a feat, given the staggering amount (and variety) of masks sold at the beauty superstore — and it's definitely one that's deserved. You see, the SUPERMUD mask earns the "super" in its name, given its fairly unique cocktail of clarifying clays, exfoliating acids, and refreshing eucalyptus oil. 

It's a multitasker for sure, and well-loved by many, between its skin-clearing formula, its eye-catching packaging, and overall hype. According to Forbes, the brand first made major waves on the skincare scene back in 2012 with it's very first mask, which was loved by celebrity types because of it's ability to make skin "camera-ready" in 10 minutes. It quickly grew popular with the Hollywood set, and the rest, they say, is history. SUPERMUD in particular has basically been a Sephora bestseller ever since it first hit the shelves.

Glamglow Supermud, $56, Amazon

Suffice it to say, it's worth a try if you can swing the $69 price tag. For major fans of the product, though, are there similar products out there? It's tough to beat the number one mask in all of Sephora, sure, but here are some other great products that are similarly skin-clearing.

1. GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment

Glamglow Supermud, $56, Amazon

Well, first things first, there's SUPERMUD itself. 

2. GLAMGLOW GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment Mask

GLAMGLOW GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment Mask, $51, Amazon

Then, if you're already a fan, the brand's firming treatment is also quite great (it was #4 on Sephora's list of top masks). It's a peel off and it's chrome, which naturally makes it a lot of fun to use.

3. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, $24, Amazon

Like SUPERMUD, Origins' Clear Improvement Mask uses charcoal to clear pores.

4. Dr. Jart Dermaclear Trans Foam Clay Set

5. L'Oreal Paris Skin Care Pure Clay Mask Purify and Mattify

And as long as we're talking cleansers, this one also happens to be formulated with eucalyptus.

10. Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment

Another day, another great charcoal mask — except this one has a fun "pudding" texture.
