I did a little online Borghese Haul because they had a sale where you got 50% off gift sets so I got 8 1 oz tubes of masks and creams for $13 and that included shipping!

Here’s what I got!

Borghese Fango Active Mud For Face and Body – I reviewed the Borghese Fango Active last year and I still love it! Below is a jar that I bought previously. This mud dry like a clay and really works to purifying my skin.

Borghese Fango Purificante Purifying Clay Cleanser –  This light grey cleanser has naturally-sourced clay and Phytic Acid, polyphenol-rich plant extracts and antioxidants help refine, soothe and smooth. I like using this cleanser when I have break-outs.

Borghese Fango Purificante Purifying Clay MaskThe Purificante Purifying Clay Mask also help when my skin is experiencing a break out!

Borghese Fango Delicato – This is a nice light green mud for delicate skin. It has Aloe Vera, Oat Protein and Mango Butter for hydration. It also has Olive Fruit and Chamomile Extracts for dryness.

Borghese Gentle Foaming Gel for Bath and Shower – This luminescent blue gel has a wonderful strong scent with Thyme, Comfrey, Chamomile and Cornflower. It makes my skin feel so soft!

Borghese Tono Body Creme – This body cream is more like body butter to me. I feel soft and I get great hydration!

Borghese Crema Saponetta Cleansing Crème – The cleansing cream comes in a gift set and the orange formula smells so good and leaves my skin fresh and clean.

Borghese Equilibrio Moisturizer – This non-oily moisturizer works great on my skin in the Summer as it does not look greasy.

I also created a short Mini Borghese Haul video.

CremaSaponetta Cleansing Crème – 1 oz. I actually got this set because of the Cleansing Cream. I use this about 3-4 times a week in the shower on my face. It leaves my skin soft and smells amazingly earthy.

Fango Active Mud Mask – 1 oz. – The Fango Mud is one of my favorite clay masks. I did a review here: Borghese Fango Active Mud Review. This stuff is awesome!

Cura Forte Moisture Intensifier – 0.25 oz. This product is new for me and I can’t wait to try it out. It’s supposed to be very hydrating.

Mini B-Gloss in Rosetto  This lip gloss is beautiful in a shimmery pink. Can’t wait to try it.

Mini Superiore State-of-The-Art Mascara in Black I’ve never turned down a mini-mascara! This one looks great and I’ll be sure to review it soon.

Borghese Gel Delicato Gentle Makeup Remover Review

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.
