You can go ahead and file mud masks under things we can’t live without. While in the not-too-distant past, indulging in an at-home mask meant either a) quenching your skin’s thirst or b) pulling out the grime living deep within your pores, that was about it. These days, there’s more variety, with masks for brightening, calming, aging… insert skin problem here. And the best part is that you don’t have to pick just one: Grab a couple and you can multi-mask your way to a customized treatment that’s just right.
Have dry cheeks? Uneven skin tone? Not to worry. We’re breaking down why we’re loving these four standout fast-acting, unisex Borghese masks that you can mix, match, pair, or wear alone for your healthiest skin yet.
What It Is:
Borghese’s four results-driven mud masks are inspired by the rejuvenating properties found in Tuscany’s mineral-rich thermal springs. Indulgent? Maybe. But at $48 a pop, that’s much less than a flight to the land of pasta and vino. Plus there’s a formula for everyone. If you have dry skin that shows signs of premature aging, reach for the Advanced Fango Delicato Mud Mask infused with white honey extract and vitamin E acetate that provides intense moisturization, or grab the Fango Riparativo Mud Mask enriched with lavender extract and allantoin to help calm and soothe skin.
Or if you live in a pollution-heavy city, there’s the Advanced Fango Active Mud Mask, formulated with Siberian ginseng root extracts and chaga mushrooms to help counteract the signs of environmental pollution and boost skin’s resilience. And if dealing with dull, uneven skin, there’s the Fango Uniforme Mud Mask featuring coffee-seed extract and caffeine to awaken while boswellia serrata, centella asiatica, betel alba bark, and polygonum cuspidate root extracts help even skin tone, leading to an overall lifted, healthy appearance.
Why We Need to Have It:
Chances are everyone’s experienced the bright, glowing skin that comes post-facial. But re-creating the spa-like effect at home has always felt like a fruitless endeavor. That’s why being able to mix and mask based on your skin’s needs is a total game changer. Now, we’re not saying you always have to multi-mask; some nights don’t require as much TLC as others. It’s all based on how your skin is looking and feeling. And that means from head to toe—these luxurious formulas can be used on both face and body.
Apply a thick layer to skin, and let it sit for two to five minutes. Bonus: Each mask is paraben-, talc-, and phthalate-free.
