BORGHESE

Birchbox Breakdown

This cleansing mud mask is a big deal in the beauty world. A perpetual award-winner and magazine editor favorite, the Italian treatment blends mineral-rich mud is sourced from Tuscany’s volcanic hills with other nourishing ingredients. Use it on your face to purge your pores of built-up gunk and on your body to firm your skin. It even comes with a sponge to make removal super easy. Home spa, anyone?

How it Works

Tuscany’s soothing green mud is famous for its deep cleaning powers. It rids skin of impurities, while a dose of avocado and sweet almond oils restore hydration and softness. Best of all, it’s moist, not sticky, and it doesn’t dry out your skin.

How to Use

As a face mask, apply a generous layer onto your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for five to ten minutes and remove with the dampened sponge. As a body treatment, smooth onto your skin and leave on for ten to twenty minutes. Remove with the sponge in the shower. Insider tip: Fango also works as a great acne spot treatment!

Deep Clean

This mud is awesome! It leaves the skin feeling revived, clean and smooth. Don't be concerned if you break out the next day, it's just because the mud brought out the impurities in your skin. Note: this is not for sensitive skin. Use the delicate mud if you have sensitive skin.

I Look Like A Gal In The Jungle (With A Smooth Face)!

I've been using this outstanding mud for years. My jar has lasted forever and it never gets old or dry. I love how this product makes my skin feel and plan to use it forever.

Be prepared for a startling mirror image after applying this to your face, however, because you'll resemble a jungle woman! I scared my dog the other day when I came out of the bathroom with this on my face...no joke! He ran out of the room, hair raised on his back and growling! :^D

This product is great, especially if you want to really deep-clean your skin. The only thing I will say is that when I first put this mud on my face it stings slightly - a small price to pay for the effect it has on my problematic skin. Definitely a re-purchase after I finish my first tub!

I love this mud!

Ok, I am really excited that this product is available on Birchbox since its really hard to find in stores. I have used this active mud for years, and love the way it makes my skin feel! Plus, I havent used a product yet that Borghese doesnt excel in. A+!

The gold standard.

This mask is THE BUSINESS. I have fair, sensitive, acne-prone, congested skin and this mask clears my blackheads and makes my skin feel firm and smooth. When I first started using it, I noticed an increase in breakouts, but that stopped. I think it was just my pores being cleared. I LOVE this stuff and highly recommend it!

I really like this product. I need to use it a few more times to make a final determination, but so far, I love the way my skin feels. I have used it twice and it has left my skin feeling so soft and radient. Feels good while I am wearing it. No harsh chemicals or irritants.

Found my skin a bit tight and dry after use, would like to try the Restorative Hydrating Mud to see if the results were different. Nice masque, tingly!

I liked this mud mask but it wasn't anything amazing. My skin felt dry after using it so I don't think I'd buy it.
