Can't get enough!

I received this in a box a while back and was really sad to run out of my sample, but I managed to find a bottle at my local TJ Maxx and already used it as well. This mask is amazing for oily skin and as mentioned in the small side note here- it is a great spot treatment for acne as well!

I can't tell you how many times I would feel a blemish coming on, apply this before bed, and wake with great results. I am very excited to get my hands on it again!

Just OK

This product went on smoothly and washed off well. My face felt pretty soft afterward, nothing outstanding, but good. The only thing is that my face got really red and felt a little stingy about 5 minutes after I washed the mask off. It didn't last long, though, and the next morning my face was fine.

An experience!
Purchased

I used Borghese Fango Active over 20 years ago and was really pleased to find that Birchbox offered it. This mask is a fantastic facial experience from the fun application to the wash off. You actually feel it working. It seems to "activate" circulation and after rinsing, your complexion radiant!

Love This Product
Purchased

Since it is an active mask it does tingle and burn slightly but since you only keep the mask on for 2-5 minutes, it is not bad.
I loved the way my skin looked and felt afterwards, I will definitely be using this on a weekly basis.

Love it

Let me start by saying that this is an ACTIVE mask (as stated on the packaging!)...meaning it IS going to tingle. For the first minute or two, it felt like I had a mild chemical peel on my face, but after that, it actually had a very cooling effect. I'm an esthetician, so I've been able to build up my skin's tolerance level...I definitely don't think I would recommend this to somebody who has sensitive skin. To those complaining that it dries...it's a MUD mask, that is what it is supposed to do! My skin looked brighter/glowing after one use. This will definitely become a part of my regular skin care routine from here on out!

MUD MASK LOVE!
Purchased

LOVE THIS STUFF! IT MAKES YOUR SKIN REALLY SOFT AND YOU FEEL REJUVENATED AFTER YOUR MINI FACIAL. I ONLY WISH IT DIDNT DRY SO FAST.

Did nothing, but make my face feel like it was on fire
Purchased

I felt like I was being bit by ants all over my face for three minutes. (I could only take three minutes of it!) It did nothing for my skin overall and it was impossible to keep the mask from drying out while wearing it.

Sensitive skin ... this made it happy!

I NEVER use masks on my face because nothing ever, EVER works! This mask is a different story! Maybe it's because my brain knows the mud is from Tuscany ... but it really did wonders on my skin. I highly recommend it if you're oily or sensitive!

Borghese Fango Active Mud is Great!
Purchased

Even my husband loves this invigorating mask! It has a great texture, and makes your skin feel fantastic - really tightens up those pores.

Great Product
Purchased

This is a perfect mud-mask. A bit drying, but the best I've found so far. The only complaint would be that it lays on thin.
