Look how creamy it is!

I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to try these wonderful looking mud masks from Borghese. The product featured above is the Heart of Fango. The Heart of Fango includes 10 individual pods arranged in the shape of a heart. And it arrived just in time for Valentine’s Day! The timing couldn’t be more perfect!

The description from the Borghese website:
‘A perpetual award-winner, blogger and magazine editor favorite, Borghese’s most iconic product, FANGO is the proven mud mask treatment authority. These muds can be used together or alone to detoxify, hydrate and firm your face and body and leave skin smooth and glowing. Mix your muds and match to your skincare concerns. Fango is now available in individual pods – great for multi-masking or to take with you on the go.’

The pods included:
Fango Active Mud for Face and Body (2 pods) – Our signature and classic mud that deeply purifies, hydrates and firms leaving skin smooth, toned and radiant

Fango Delicato Active Mud for Delicate, Dry Skin (4 pods) – Our delicate mud that detoxifies, calms and hydrates dry, sensitive skin

Fango Brillante Brightening Mud Mask for Face and Body (2 pods) – Our brightening mud that minimizes pores, evens tones and brightens dull, distressed skin

Fango Ferma Firming Mud for Face and Body (2 pods) – Our firming mud that helps to tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve elasticity

My skin is pretty sensitive so I started with the Fango Delicato Active Mud for Delicate, Dry Skin. The first thing I noticed was the pleasant, fresh scent. I dug right in and applied a thin layer all over my face. The directions do say to apply a thick layer and rinse with a washcloth and cool water. But since my skin is so sensitive I figured if I applied a thin enough layer I might not need the washcloth which is too harsh on my skin. Anyway, the texture was so thick and creamy. It glided onto my skin effortlessly. Immediately afterward my face got a little tingly. That lasted for about 1-2 minutes then it started to feel cool. I kept it on for 10 minutes and then washed it off. Turns out I needed the washcloth anyway. Oops! Because of that my skin was a little red and irritated for a little while afterward. Usually if I apply a thin enough layer of my volcanic ash mask, a washcloth isn’t needed for removal. I guess the mud is just thicker and richer?

Afterward my skin felt incredibly soft! My skin wasn’t left feeling tight or dry. It felt cool and refreshed. And I didn’t notice any new breakouts immediately after or the following day. Which is always a good sign! Especially if you have such sensitive skin. Honestly, I didn’t notice much of a calming effect, but my skin does feel hydrated. It doesn’t feel as dry as it did prior to using the mask.

The pods contain a lot of product. Even if I did apply a thicker layer I’d still have a 1/3 of the pod leftover. My only real issue is that the pods don’t reseal. So you have to put it in a container to keep it from drying out.

…oh yeah… that happened

Overall this is a great gift set. I love the idea of mixing it up and applying different muds to different areas to match your skin care concerns. I’m actually planning on purchasing one for my mother-in-law because this is right up her alley. And I’m not trying to part with mine. I’m usually not so greedy (I swear!), but it’s so relaxing to just sit in a hot bubble bath rocking a mud mask. Sometimes you just have to pamper yourself. So I tucked mine away for just that.

*I received these products complimentary. I was not paid or compensated in any way to write this review. All opinions are completely my own.

  1. What a fabulous gift! I love masks and would totally give this a try :-) It’s nice to get a bunch in one package as I usually buy those single ones at Target.

  2. What a cute packaging for this mask set! It’s really pretty and well thought out.
    What I personally do to avoid having to use a washcloth is apply my masks just before the shower. I let them sit as long as they’re supposed to, then jump into the shower, and usually getting my face right under the shower head and gently massaging with my hands is enough to remove even the toughest clay mask, although it can take a little bit of time!

    • It really is! And thanks so much for the tip! My skin is just so sensitive. I’ll definitely try washing it off in the shower next time. I usually don’t have problems washing them off by hand, but these were just so thick.

  3. I must admit, with the heart shaped theme I thought I was about to read a review about chocolates. lol That aside, these masks sounds great. I hope the other ones prove to work just as well for you.

  6. Packaging looks so cute, but I can see that there would be a problem due to these not having a cap/lid. How is it that possible that you look so pretty, even with a face mask on? Not fair lol :)

  7. It’s so annoying when anything other than a single-use product comes in non-resealable packaging! That being said, I really like using masks and these look so cute, so I’d love to try them.

  8. But why isn’t your hair in rollers and why aren’t you wearing a fluffy pink bathrobe with matching slippers?! Dammit, don’t you know how to be a wife? ;P

    That mask does sound quite nice, though. =) Glad to hear it didn’t aggravate your skin!
