Back in the 1980’s Borghese was Princess Marcella Borghese (who was an actual person). Marcella Borghese was friends with Revlon founder Charles Revson and he helped get her cosmetic line up an running. Later the company reorganized as just Borghese.
As a teen I LOVED their line. I was a huge fan of Duran Duran, Adam Ant and every other New Wave European artist on the planet and wearing Princess Marcella Borghese made us teenage girls feel like we were a part of that culture. So much fun.
Anyway, I still love using Borghese. Today it’s less about bold color and more earthy. I can immediately recognize the Borghese scent which to me smells like what I imagine a fine European Spa smells like, I can even picture Simon Lebon there (now that’s geeky).
One of the products I love is the Gel Delicato Gentle Makeup Remover.
Gel Delicato is a thin gel that easily takes off makeup without leaving a residue. I don’t use this everyday, just when I’m wearing dark eyeshadow or mascara. It does the trick and leaves your face smooth and nice smelling.
Here’s a great tip for getting Borghese for less. They frequently have sales that offer 20% or 30% off. Wait until a sale and get a Gift Set with the discount which will give you a lot of products to try out. Their gift sets change frequently and I often get nice ones in the $10 range AND shipping is always free which I love.
Yes, and now I’ve got Duran Duran’s Girls on Film in my head.
