Membership has its privileges. When MISS was approached to be a part of the ELLE/Style Coalition Blogger network I was flattered. When I started receiving free products to try out I got excited – who doesn’t like free stuff? The first product I received to review was Borghese Fango. Hailing from Tuscany’s volcanic hills, Fango is a mineral-enriched face and body mud that unclogs pores, eliminates dead skin cells and detoxifies impurities. I’m a bit obsessed with facials so I couldn’t wait to give Fango a try.
The first thing I noticed about the Fango mud mask was that I didn’t have to wear it as long as other masks I’ve tried. I loved that I could wear it for a shorter period of time because I’m more likely to use the mask if the whole process takes less time. As I applied the olive green mud mask to my face the first thing I noticed was an instant cooling effect. The mask felt refreshing on my face and the lovely, fresh, clean smell added to the experience. As the minutes tick by, you can feel the mask get tighter on your face as it starts to dry a bit.
About five minutes after I applied the mask I washed it off and my skin looked brighter and the mask had diminished the appearance of some acne that I had on my forehead. My skin also felt firmer as if the mask had given me a mini face lift. I’ve used several mud masks in my life and of all the ones I’ve tried this was my favorite. I have to admit, just writing about it is making me want to apply another mask! I didn’t try the mud on my body because I’m hoarding it all for my face but I imagine you will achieve similar benefits by using it on your body.
There are five different Fango Mud products and if you visit the Borghese website you can learn about which Fango is right for you. All of the products can be purchased online at Borghese.com.
