Product Review: Borghese Hair Care

Those of you who’ve been reading for a while know that I L-O-V-E hair care products. I will try (almost) any hair care product I can get my hands on. Recently, I got me hands Borghese’s new line of hair care for select drugstores. I tried a whole slew of products, but I’ve decided to share my favorite three – Borghese Modena Moisturizing Conditioner, Borghese Modena Moisturizing Shampoo and Borghese Milan Volumizing Mousse.

Borghese Modena Moisturizing Conditioner
Borghese Modena Moisturizing Shampoo
Borghese Milan Volumizing Mousse

The shampoo and conditioner are new shower staples. They have a light, warm scent. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I swear they have just a slight hint of vanilla.Oh yea, and they leave my hair feeling clean and smooth!

The mousse is also a daily must-have now. Anytime I blow dry my hair, I reach for this volumizing mousse. I even checked my bag on my recent vacation in order to take the mousse with me. Not only does the mousse ACTUALLY add volume to my hair (not all volumizing products deliver on this promise), but it also helps to speed up the blow drying process, which is always much appreciated.

Have any of you used Borhgese hair care products before?

Pucker Up With Borghese Lipstick

Pucker Up Buttercup Lipstick Trio, $27.50

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we all want to look good. Whether it’s for dinner with your significant other or a night out with your best girlfriends, Valentine’s Day is a time to get dressed up regardless of what you’re doing. Borghese has lipstick in a variety of shades that will fit whatever you’ll be doing this Valentine’s Day.

Borghese’s Perla Duale High Impact Lipcolour is long-lasting and glides on your lips smoothly. It gives your lips a rich opaque color that’s accented with a pearl shine finish. The lipstick contains Vitamins A, E & C, which provide anti-oxidants, as well as chamomile and aloe to help sooth your lips.

I tried the Pucker Up Buttercup Lipstick Trio, which is a collection of Perla Duale High Impact Lipcolour. The trio allows you to be versatile because it comes in three shades that are great for any occasion.

Borghese Lipstick in Perla Vino

Perla Nudo is a light, natural color that’s perfect for a low-key Valentine’s Day. If you’re going out on the town with your girlfriends, stick with Perla Vino, a deep wine color. For date night with your special someone, choose the classic Perla Rosa for a pretty in pink look.

Light to Dark: Perla Nudo, Perla Rosa, Perla Vino

My favorite of the trio was the Perla Rosa. It’s pretty and understated, but still is enough color to bring out my lips. No matter what you’ll be doing this Valentine’s Day, Borghese can help complete your look. The trio is $27.50 and you can find it at Borghese, along with other products that will make you look great this Valentine’s Day.
