In this week’s Beauty Tip Tuesday I’m checking out the Borghese Fango Active Mud for Face and Body. I’m honestly a pretty low key person when it comes to taking care of my face but there’s nothing I love more than a good body scrub so when Borghese contacted me about a review I just had to put this mud to the test!
When it arrived I started reading what was actually in this stuff. I mean, I love spa treatments but I’ve never done a mud treatment so I was curious to know if this really was mud, and if so, what made it better than any other mud? Here’s what I learned:
- This Italian mud comes from the volcanic hills of Tuscany.
- It also has avocado and sweet almond oils to help moisturize and soften your skin.
I decided to go for a facial after a warm shower one evening to put this stuff to the test. I have to be honest, when I squeezed some out of the bottle onto my fingers, I was a little concerned. It really did look like mud (duh, Rachael!).
I followed the instructions on the tube, that were pretty simple:
- Apply a thick layer avoiding the eyes and mouth.
- Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Rinse off with a wet washcloth.
- Apply moisturizer.
Spill the beans! Have you used a mud treatment before? What did you think?
