Give yourself the full-on spa treatment by pairing this soak with BORGHESE’s bestselling Fango Active Mud Mask.

BORGHESE

Birchbox Breakdown

Our rubber ducky days may be long behind us, but that doesn’t mean we don’t value bath time any less. With the help of BORGHESE’s decadent mineral blend, we regularly turn our tub into a relaxing spa soak. Rich in natural salts and botanical oils, this therapeutic treatment relieves stress and muscle tension and gives us an excuse to flip through the latest US Weekly.

How it Works

BORGHESE’s signature Acqua di Vita® blend of minerals and salts restores moisture to dry skin and has deeply healing qualities (no wonder it means ‘water of life’). Faintly aromatic botanicals revive tired muscles, while safflower oil leaves skin silky to the touch.

How to Use

Turn on the tub and add bath minerals while the warm water is running. Settle in and relax for up to 20 minutes. Breathe deep.

This is a lovely bath product

This product is a really nice addition to a bath. It smells lovely, and seems more effective at soothing than other products (like bath salts) that I have tried.

relaxing

This product is easy to use - one scoop turns the bath water blue-green. The scent is spa/fresh/herbal. i'm a fitness instructor and this is perfect for after my evening classes. Very relaxing and soothing.

Huge Fan!

I got this as a treat for myself. It only takes a very small amount even in a large whirlpool tub. It doesn't bubble up much but has a soothing rich green color. I felt great after every bath and used this until it was empty. I recommend it for relaxing and muscle fatigue.

Absolutely LOVE!

After accidentally placing and losing this trail of the body soak in my overwhelming basket of products, I finally used and absolutely love! Decided this is my next purchase!

Love

I absolutely loved t his body soak. I enjoyed using it as a special treat in the afternoons. It left my skin feeling soft. It had a different, fresh minerally smell that I really liked... It kind of smelled like when you step into a spa. It turned the bathwater a little green as the tub was filling. The only thing I think would make it even better would be if it came in a bubble bath.

Nice soak for arthritic joints

I really like this. Feels so good on my aching joints. I have arthritis, so this is a treat for me and also therapeutic. Will probably purchase this one. Scent is so calming and nice.

great if you're active

Used these after running the Chicago marathon and they seriously made my legs feel so much better than just a warm bath alone.

Love this "oil!"

I got two little packets of Borghese Bagno Di Vita Body Soak (in French underneath that says Oil for the Bath, which is kind of a lie, because it’s not an oil at all but a powder/salt, but I digress) in my Birchbox a few months ago. I love that it's sulfate free, and I love that they sent me two packets because sometimes it’s hard to tell if you really like something after only one shot. This is a direct quote from their packaging – you can’t make this stuff up:

Receive the luxurious skin treatment of hydrotherapy – a therapeutic soak in mineral waters – in the comfort of your own home. Mineral infused crystals transform your bath into an oasis of calm, blue waters while the uplifting scent of botanical oils soothes tense, tired muscles.

Okay, I guess SOMEBODY made that stuff up, but still. An oasis? Really?

In spite of the silly description, I have to say, I fully endorse this product! I dumped the packet into my bath and it turned it a pretty blue color. No bubbles, but that’s usually what sulfates do, so that was okay. Additionally, even though it’s a powder, it really did feel like an oil! I left the bath feeling soft, silky, and refreshed – NOT like I’d just been soaking in my own filth for half an hour. The smell is pleasant, herbal, and spa-y, and I actually didn't even need to use the second packet to know I wanted more – I just went ahead and bought some. I used it again a couple nights ago with an equally pleasant result.

Nicely done, Borghese! Now work on that copy.
