Before you slather this mud treatment, use BORGHESE's Crema Saponetta Cleansing Crème to wash away toxins and impurities.

BORGHESE

Birchbox Breakdown

Remember all that mucking around in the mud you did in grade school? Turns out you were on to something. Now that you’re all grown up, it’s time to trade up. Sourced from Tuscany, BORGHESE's mineral-rich mud draws out toxins, impurities, and oil from skin without drying it out. It’s especially good for dry skin types, thanks to naturally hydrating ingredients like aloe vera and mango butter. Use it on your face and body.

How it Works

With mud from Tuscany’s volcanic hills, this mineral-rich mask gets an extra moisture boost from aloe vera gel, oat protein, and mango butter. Japanese Green Tea, olive, and chamomile extracts soothe even the most sensitive skin.

How to Use

Once or twice a week, apply a generous layer of mud on your face and body, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for five minutes, and then remove with a damp washcloth.

Took me awhile to get the hang of it

I purchased this product long ago and initially hated how it felt like it was burning my skin. It sat in my closet for months before I decided to give it another try.

It's easier to apply and let it soak while I shower, because I don't focus on the tingling sensation. By using it twice a week, it is helping my acne clear up and remove scarring. Good product, but I will most likely not repurchase.

After researching what naturally fades age spot I bought the sample

There was an article that lead me to this product, I am not using it like it intended. I am applying it only on my age spots, which have stopped getting larger or darker. I thought it was just me but my husband has asked me if I was wearing any foundation when I was not. Because my spots were not as dark as normal. So for what my intention was for this product it will last me for a long while which makes the price a great deal for me. I am just wondering how long it will take to make the go completely away or will there always be a little trace, I can live with that.

Great mask, though not very moisturizing
Purchased

Don't get me wrong, I like this face mask and try to use it once a week as an overall skin refresh. It's definitely gentle on my dry skin and doesn't leave a tight feeling behind after I wash it off.

That said, I think I'd go for a more straightforward moisturizing mask next time to really give my skin a boost and make it glow, since I haven't seen any vast improvements in my skin from using the mask somewhat regularly.

feels clean

I'm always intrigued by mud masks but have never tried one. This does go on the skin as a dark green, so prepare to frighten your friends or significant others. I didn't notice any visible changes, but after washing it off, my skin felt tighter, fresh, and clean. Definitely going to try this for a bit longer, but please so far with the results!

Leaves skin smooth and hydrated!
Purchased

This is a fantastic mud mask that cleans the skin from impurities without overdrying and irritating your skin. I have sensitive skin and I have had no issues with this one.

huh

I never thought I'd ever use something like this, but here we are. I have sensitive skin and this caused no ill effects (I tried a different brand which caused a break out) and left my skin feeling clean, though a bit dry - in combination with a moisturizer, my skin was probably never so clean.

Converted Skeptic

I am a product minimalist. Face mud does not fit into my skin care routine. But, I got it so I tried it. Besides my girlfriend giving me a hard time this was a nice product. My skin felt clean and looked brighter after use. As a once a week kind of thing i could probably get into it.

Fantastic!

I never really bought into the mud mask hype, but once I got a sample of this, I was hooked. I use it on my face once per week and it makes my sensitive, combination skin look clear and bright. Absolutely love.
