“She was bored to death writing about a facial cleanser.” How embarrassing an obituary would that be? I mean, really, what can you say about a good one? “It cleans really well.” “Really well it does clean.” But Borghese Crema Saponetta (or cleansing crème, for those who prefer the more romantic English language) un-bored me to life.
First off, it has a rich, luxurious lather. It smells like you just walked into an Aveda. And I've never experienced a cleanser that felt like it cleaned so deeply. (Like if it cleaned my skin any deeper, it could double as a mouthwash.)
Borghese Crema Saponetta is just another facial cleaner, like Mr Clean is just another custodial engineer.
And I don’t know what voodoo you do, Borghese, but I’ve tried $80 firming serums that didn’t firm as well as this cleanser. It felt like a bus door closed on my face, while I was still trying to push my way on. (I mean that in a good way. Not in a, then the bus went on to drag me, by my face, for a few blocks kind of way.)
To me, Borghese Crema Saponette is the Michael Phelps of facial cleansers. And by the way, congratulations, Michael! Because I’m sure you’re reading this right now:)
Until this cleanser, I wouldn’t have thought it possible to write 299 words
about a facial cleanser without using the word “very” 290 times.
