There are only a few products I remember as having a permanent place on my mother’s vanity as a girl. The original Oil of Olay baby pink fluid lotion in the square glass bottle, a bottle of Â Guerlain Shalimar, and Borghese Fango. Â I can recall wondering why anyone wouldÂ put green mud on their face (although my mother had great skin).
For almost 25 years, Borghese has brought their Tuscan mineral-rich mud to market. Sourced from the volcanic hills of Tuscany, the benefit-laden mud is renowned for its ability to energize and nourish skins cells on the face and body.Â It’s uniqueÂ absorbing action unclogs pores, eliminates dead skin cells and detoxifies impurities. In addition, the treatmentÂ containsÂ Borghese’sÂ exclusive Acqua di VitaÂ® Complex to revitalize the skin.Â The classic mud mask isÂ sold in two sizes: a 7-oz. tube for $33.50 and the classic 17.6-oz. jar for $61.00. The terracotta tube reminds me of the picturesque roofs of Tuscany.
Inspired by a custom that dates back to the 14th century, FangoÂ continues the custom of seekingÂ outÂ the healing properties of the mud surrounding the volcanic hills of Tuscany.Â SinceÂ Fango launched 25 years ago, four additional Fango Active Muds have been introduced including: Delicato for sensitive skin, Brillante to brighten and refine, Ristorativo to nourish and replenish, and Hair & Scalp to smooth and condition.
Personally, I love the smell of the original – takes me right back to the years of my youth. Geranium, lavender and peppermint oils improve toneÂ while avocadoÂ andÂ sweet almond oils leave skin feeling soft and magnificently moisturized.Â Following a 5 to 10 minute treatment, our skin will feel nicely hydrated and invigorated.
Fango is a classic multi-tasker too – you can use it for your face, body and as an emergency mask for blemishes!
