Beauty Review: Deep Cleansing Masks

As my mom likes to say, "It doesn't matter how fashionable you are if you don't have good skin." Ofcourse, like the good girl that I am, I fully agree with this statement, I mean, what could possibly be more important then your skin? And so, I like to treat my skin to a good mask once or twice a week (doing masks more then twice a week is simply not recommended), to give it some time to relax and recuperate from all the stuff it encounters in our daily life. Today, I came upon a great bargain-the Borghese Fango Active Mud Mask for face and body.



The signature product of this Italian company. This Italian mud unclogs pores, hydrates, nourishes and energizes- basically everything one is looking for in a mask. It came highly recommended from everyone I know and from various reviews. And after trying it out myself, I highly recommend it too, my skin felt all tingly and clean afterwards! At the moment, they are doing this yearly special where they sell you this 32oz (huge) jar of Fango Mud for $42.90 (as opposed to a 17.6oz for $57.50). There is no expiration date for this, so a 32 oz jar would probably last forever! Great bargain right?



If you have missed this bargain and don't want to spend all that much on a mask, you could try the Body Shop Blue Corn 3 in 1 Deep Cleansing Scrub Mask, for $14 instead. This one also has great reviews and having personally tried it, Harrods girl and I think this is quite good as a more affordable alternative. I especially love the fact that it cleans, moisturizes and exfoliates at the same time. So in your busy and hectic life, don't forget to to take some time to treat your skin once in a while, because while fashion changes every season, your skin stays with you forever.

I love masks. Too bad the one I had - some cucumber concoction - I threw out after deciding it was too old. I always used it when I would start to break out and start to look very red. Now I'm missing it. I'm going to have to check these out.

Thanks for the reccomendations, it can be hard to find a good masque. Where is this Borghese bargain you speak of, I can't find it anywhere?

The Body Shop Blue Corn Mask is indeed quite a good deep cleansing mask. But remember, for any of these masks including the ones we recommend, you must use them at least once a week to get any effect from them. And remember to use them only where it is oily on your face. (use hydrating mask instead on your drier areas on your face.)

The Borghese bargain is an once in a year only bargain. And I got mine at Lord and Taylors in Chicago recently, but there wasn't a lot left. So it might have unfortunately ran out. But keep your eyes open and good luck!

Yup, that blue corn mask is great. I'll have to do a review on my favorites too.

I will check out the Borghese Mud mask next time I go shopping. Winter is wreaking absolute havoc on my skin.

I have combination skin and I find the Body Shop Blue Corn Mask is too drying. Even on my T-zone it can be quite harsh and leave my skin tight and dry. For those of you with combination skin, try a deep cleansing papaya or strawberry mask. I particularly like the one from Shoppers Drug Mart Life Brand.

Anonymous: There are two types of combination skin -dry and oily. I have combination oily skin so I think the Body Shop corn mask is good. You probably have combination dry skin.
