I don’t want to bore you with the same intro. I don’t want to sound like a nagging cockatoo. I don’t like repeating myself; but willpower is weak today so regardless if you heard this bajillion times, I adore facial masks because anytime I get to spend 15 minutes or so of mask time, by myself, eyes closed, no interruption, is absolute me-time. So imagine my elation when I received these limited edition face and body muds from Borghese. Zesty and contemporary, the jars are truly work of art!
Exclusive to Lord and Taylor for a limited time, Borghese’s Fango ($75, 17.6 oz) takes a rather vibrant spin courtesy of Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic, an acclaimed designer, calligrapher and creative director of the UK-based Music and Arts label Earnest Endeavors. With that in mind, these jars are totally reusable so I can’t wait to finish these muds!
But aside from the artsy packaging (notice the Fango calligraphy on the jar?), I’ve been meaning to try these facial masks for the longest time because I’ve read and heard nothing but rave reviews. For one, these masks are made from natural minerals and botanicals which help rejuvenate the skin depending on the variant you use. I have the original Fango (muddy green) sourced from the nutrient-rich earth of Tuscany mixed with geranium, lavender and avocado oils to unclog pores and remove dead skin cells. The one on the right (light green) features aloe vera, oat protein and mango butter to help soothe sensitive skin. I’m no stranger to mud masks; I’ve tried a gamut so if there’s one significant difference I have to mention, these don’t dry rock-hard and that’s mainly because of botanical extracts and/or oils mixed with the formula. So after washing my face, I apply a copious amount all over my face and neck and let the minerals and nutrients soak in for 20 minutes or so. After that, I rinse, pat dry and proceed with toning, applying serums and moisturizer. Just my idea of at-home facial spa!
