Welcome to a very long overdo review of Borghese‘s Fango Active Micellar Cleansing Water and Radiance Facial Oil! So overdo, in fact, that I’m already well into my second bottle of the stuff!
A while back, a package landed on my doorstep, stocked with Borghese‘s Fango Active skincare bits. If you follow me on SnapChat, you may have seen my excitement while opening the package, as I’m always happy to see and try new things from Borghese. (Who seriously spoil me, THANK YOU!)
When I say I flew through my first bottle and am already into my second of the Borghese’s Fango Active Micellar Cleansing Water, I am not joking…at all. First, let’s start with the genius packaging that has one of those pump-upward thingies that I’m always so keen on when I’m wiping off swatches at Sephora. (Yes, pump upward thingy is its official name.) I load up a cotton pad with the stuff and get swipe, swiping away at my waterproof eyeliner and lashes, double coated in mascara. If you ever question if micellar water is anything more than ‘fancy water’, Borghese is here to settle the case once and for all: it is. In fact, it’s so much more! This gentle and refreshing liquid cuts straight through the hard stuff, without batting an eye.
I love using the micellar water to remove my makeup before a cleanse, but it’s also a great refreshing boost in the morning when worn underneath my moisturizer. It’s been one of those revolutionary products that I don’t think I can do without.
Borghese also kindly sent me their Fango Active Radiance Facial Oil, which is loaded with vitamins and anti-oxidants. Being a tad paranoid about aging, I’m always down for an anti-oxident product, and oils are only better. Breaking news? It’s the first facial oil, ever, that works well under makeup! When Borghese dubs their radiance oil fast-absorbing, they’re not joking. My skin literally gulps this stuff up, leaving no greasy/shiny mess behind.
If you are oily skinned, I understand your hesitancy in considering a facial oil. Afterall, it’s a bit nerve-racking to apply oil to oil, right? Fear not though, as this will quickly absorb and not add to any of your usual oil. In fact, I’d say there’s something about the Radiance Facial Oil that actually sucks up oil. Not sure how that is possible, but my skin always feels perfectly balanced and smooth after applying.
In a nutshell, I’m still riding high on the Borghese bandwagon. They’re definitely my favorite beauty discover of 2015 thus far. In case you missed it, read my post on their eyeshadow and blushes here! I also acquired their foundation recently, so be on the lookout for a review of that coming soon!
