Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for Face and Body

Hey loves!

It's the weekend!!! I actually have classes during Saturdays but it was announced that my class today will not push through because of the thunderstorm. Yay for suspension of classes! Haha! This happiness that I have whenever classes were suspended never left me since I was in grade school. LOL 

Anyway, since I'll be home all day, it's time to PAMPER myself! One of the things I do is to apply face mask for my skin to feel smooth, hydrated, clean, etc. depending on what mask I use. Every Saturdays, I tend to use mud masks to better clean my pores after a stressful week of going to the office. One of my favorite mud masks I've used is this one that my sister sent me as a gift...

Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for Face and Body

I got a second hand! Haha! My sister bought it for herself but gave it to me after a few tries. I dunno why she gave this to me... and I haven't asked why. LOL And I'm not familiar with this brand but when I read reviews about this product, it seems so goooood! So I was so excited to use it.

Anyway, here's some info from the website:

Product Description:
Our signature and classic Fango Active is a one-and-only, must-have, mineral-rich mud. It's a sensational step beyond everyday clean. Derived from traditional Tuscan treatments, its deep-down purifying power purges and minimizes pores. It exfoliates and helps surface cell turnover, imparting clarity. It hydrates and firms reducing fine lines and providing smooth, toned texture. Infused with Sweet Almond and Avocado Oils, this mud detoxifies and does away with dull skin, leaving skin radiant and refreshed.

And here's a product description from

Water (Aqua), Bentonite (CI 77004) (CI 77004), Propylene Glycol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond Oil), Persea Gratissima Oil (Avocado), Sea Salt (Maris Sal), Fragrance (Parfum), Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen Amino Acids, Adenosine 5' Triphosphate Disodium Salt (ATP), Mineral Salt (Potassium Silicate), Polysorbate 20, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Cellulose Gum, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Trisodium EDTA, Talc, Fuller's Earth (Solum Fullonum) (Solum Fullonum), Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Citonellol, Coumarin, Geraniol, Linalool, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77289), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

Apply generously (about one quarter inch thick) to clean skin (face, neck and/or body). Avoid lip and eye area.
Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly using sponge or washcloth.

There also a very short description on the jar. :P

And can I just mention how awesome the jar is?? Definitely gonna recycle this and maybe reuse this as a candy jar or something...

Consistency is really thick and I feel a stingy sensation whenever I apply it. It dries like clay if you leave it long enough but follow the directions to let it stay for only 10 minutes (although I do let it stay for 15 minutes). My sis didn't give me the sponge that it should come with but it can be removed by only water and massaging. I use the mask before taking a shower so that I remove it while I take a shower so that it won't be messy. I don't want mud all over my sink. :P And oh, I've only used this on my face and not on my body yet.

So how does this work? Well... it's SUPER AWESOME! It clears my pores from excess oil and dirt... it really sucks out the oil but not make my skin feel dry. I think it helps exfoliate too because I don't see the flaky bits of the zits I dried out. My face looks brightened after I wash the mask off. It's just brilliant! But brilliance costs a little extra I guess... a 500g jar is around $60-70!

Have you tried Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for Face and Body yet? What's your favorite mud mask?




  1. Hinihintay ng profs namin yung suspension yesterday because grad school suspended pero wala XD

    I like clay masks but this is too expensive for my budget. My current clay mask doesn't exfoliate well but it does the job of sucking out excess oil and dirt so it's fine XD I haven't finished my 100g Innisfree clay mask yet and it's been with me for around 9 months na XD

    1. I wanna try that Innisfree mask you have. I got 2 of their volcanic pore masks though. :P
