Learn More About Borghese
The line of the Borghese brand skincare products was founded in the 1950s by the Princess Marcello Borghese, but the roots of their formulas date back thousands of years, based in the tradition of using mineral waters to improve health. Thermal mineral springs have been treasured for their healing and restorative powers dating back to the days of the Roman Empire; the region of Tuscany was particularly renowned for the variety and quality of its mineral springs. Today, under the experienced leadership of Georgette Mosbacher, the Borghese skincare products continue the long tradition of healing waters and mineral earths, combined with modern scientific techniques, to create treatment products of unparalleled effectiveness and quality.
One of the mainstays of these formulas - the Acqua di Vita Living Water Complex - contains a unique balance of sodium chloride, magnesium, calcium carbonate, potassium and other mineral compounds - which help revitalize, strengthen and support skin health. By attracting and binding moisture to the skin tissues, the minerals in this water complex help maintain the skin's moisture balance, providing a smoother and more resilient skin texture. Borghese is committed to bringing superior anti-aging skincare, daily skin maintenance and self-renewal care in a spa setting and at home. The formulas are built on a heritage that goes back to the 14th century, employing the proven treasures of mineral-infused water and earth to provide nourishing, re-energizing care. They are offered today with modern sensibilities, backed with scientific understanding for their interactive value. Now the treasures of the nobility are available to all.

25-34Gender: FSkin Type: sensitiveGood for sensitive skin - 12/6/2012 11:58:07 AM I have very sensitive skin so have been very prudent when choosing cleaning masque. This one works well. Though it also hurts, sometimes, the pain would be gone soon. One goes a long way.AussiePerthGal Perth, Australia Pros: easy to remove, great value, removes eye makeup without a trace Cons: no cap on the pump to protect it.Overall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
45-54Gender: FHair Color: blondeSkin Tone: lightEye Color: brownGreat eye makeup remover - 8/4/2012 6:52:37 PM Fantastic product. I used to use the MD Formulations basic cleanser (with no glycolic acid) but they don't make it anymore. I've since been looking for something that is good value, doesn't sting my eyes, and doesn't dehydrate the eye area. This ticks the boxes. Mine had leaked in the box when I received it. There was no cap to protect the pump which you twist to lock and unlock. If there was a cap maybe it wouldn't have leaked. Apart from that I love it.Terra Missouri Pros: gentle, lightweight, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use

35-44Gender: FSkin Type: normalMy absolutely favorite hand cream - 3/21/2011 6:00:44 AM I perpetually have dry hands and elbows and go through hand cream very quickly. I have tried so many different brands from the high end to the drug store variety. Borghese's Splendide Mani Smoothing Hand Cream is BY FAR my favorite out of all of them. It is thick and luxurious. It takes a minute or two to absorb, but it keeps my hand soft and moisturized all day long. It even holds up pretty well through hand washing. I know many hand creams claim they hold up through hand washing, but this cream is one of the few that actually does. I only have a couple of complaints about this hand cream and they are only personal preferences and do not reflect the quality of the product. This is a high quality product and it is the best of the best! #1) I do not care for the scent at all. I wish that it didn't have a scent. I like to wear perfume and it clashes with any perfume I wear. The scent does dissipate after a while, but not right away. #2) The other downside is the price. It is expensive -- even if it does last a long time. I do think it is worth the price... I just wish it were a little less expensive. As it is I only buy it as a splurge and do not use it 100% of the time (which I would do if it were more reasonably priced). Keep an eye on Borghese's holiday gift sets. They often include this hand cream. They have a TON of products in them for a fabulous priced and come in the most beautiful boxes. Every year I anticipately wait for the holidays to see what Borghese will release as far as their gift sets. I am NEVER disappointed. Many times they release two versions and I purchase both. Last Christmas I bought one for my 70+ year old mother and she loved it.SoCal southern California Pros: pleasant fragrance, gentle, smooth texture, intensive moisture Cons: greasyOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
45-54Gender: FSkin Type: sensitivegreat heavy hand cream - 11/14/2010 3:50:45 PM My husband and I have used this hand creme for probably 15 years. I followed it from store to store as the department stores phased out Borghese and finally had to order it online. I'm glad SkinStore is carrying it. Its a terrific heavy creme for dry, itchy, red hands. My husband used to use vaseline on his hands and leave grease stains on the sheets. I tried many cremes before finding Splendid Mani. It satisfies his need for a hardworking, healing, night cream. I love the light spa-fragrance--I'm very sensitive to smells but this one is light and not offensive. The creme is greasy if you use too much or if you are wearing delicate fabrics or leather, so I mainly use it at night even though it has sunscreen.A little goes a long way. But I always find it to be the best of any for dealing with dry, cracked hands and nails.Highly recommended!
