I have been living the blemished skin struggle y’all, ugh.
On a whim, a few months back, by chance, I purchased Borghese Purificante Purifying Mud Mask. Until last week I had only used it maybe twice. It wasn’t what I needed at the time, but it’s coming in very handy now.
In the last two weeks I started breaking out on my forehead, which is unusual. So I had to find something to remedy it. For the most part, I have mainly been using the same products for the past few months. So I knew it wasn’t what I had been using that was causing this break out.
When I realized these stubborn pimples weren’t going to go away using my normal cleansing routine. I figured that I was going to need something a bit more intense.
So far, so good. So on to the review.
From the box:
This complexion-clearing formula purifies and illuminates. Naturally-sourced clay purges impurities and helps sequester sebum. Natural acids and polyphenol-rich plant extracts exfoliate, refine and minimize pores, to help clarify even blemish-prone skin. Algal Earth helps smooth and resurface. Antioxidants and skin-soothing botanicals provide for clear, radiant and beautifully balanced skin.
From my skin:
This clay mask is beautifully intense. When I first put it on, it was super calming. It soon started to tingle in a comfortable minty kind of way.
It’s a very relaxing sensation.
The directions say to leave it on for 2-5 minutes. But I leave it on until the tingling stops and it’s more dried down.
I remove this mask using a warm wet wash rag, then follow it up with what ever regimen that I am working that day.
This isn’t a miracle mask, so it doesn’t work instantaneously. Initially when I used it, it did work over night. I vividly saw the effects of the mask the next morning. It brought the sebum to the top of two of the blemishes.
I have use this mask several times since this initial occasion. Sometimes following it up with a calming or moisturizing sheet mask. Always followed by some kind of retinol serum and a hydrating moisturizer.
I have seen great results since adding this mud mask to my more “normal” routine. I’m so glad I picked it up. To be honest, I am still using this mask even thought my skin is back to blemish free. But mainly because I enjoy the tingly minty sensation.
Where to find Borghese:
Like I said earlier I found my Borghese Fango Purificante Purifying Mud Mask on a whim, in Burlington, at an amazing price, might I add. You can also pick it up from the Borghese website. I googled the name and it came up in a ton of places, from Amazon.com to jet.com. I do, honestly, believe in the quality of the product. If you can find it at a discounted price do that.
