Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Fifteenth Giveaway sponsored by:

Is there such thing as 'Deja Beauty'?  While it may not be in Webster's Dictionary, I did recently experience it. And experiencing it makes it real right?

Somehow Macy's seems to always play an important role in my favorite discoveries. And Borghese is no different! Quite a few years ago I took my Mom to Macy's for a Spa Treatment for Mother's Day and Borghese products were used. Afterwards, they also asked us if we'd like a complimentary mother and daughter makeover for Mother's Day. We were game! And we loved all the products used so much we bought them all. After Spa Treatments, Makeovers and Major Shopping, we were exhausted, and dinner was definitely in order.

But all day we got numerous compliments on our makeup and our skin. And because the artist told us what she was applying and how each step of the way, I was easily able to re-create the look well afterwards, which doesn't always happen!

I used Borghese products for many years, and for some reason just stopped. And then when I started blogging and trying out so many new products I had completely abandoned many of my favorites throughout the years. All for the sake of my readers of course! And when I received a box of goodies recently from Borghese it was literally 'Beauty Deja Vu'. I remembered all the reasons I bought all the products after my spa treatment and makeover in the first place, they are EFFECTIVE. period. And they also make beauty look effortless, and isn't that exactly what we want our products to do, make it look natural. Just with that 'natural glow' and something extra!

My Take:

I am so happy be re-acquainted with Borghese! The Fango Mud Mask has always been one of my all time favorites, it's super effective and leaves my skin glowing and re-newed. So much so, that I rarely ever want to put a foundation on the day I treat myself to a Fango Mask!

This was my first time trying out Cura C, and I will be adding it to my scrub rotation! Products that contain Vitamin C really do work wonders for my skin, and this left my skin feeling soft and smooth.

I already knew I loved Borghese Mascara, and I know you will too! Ladies with sensitive eyes like mine, Rejoice!

I am however a first timer to the gloss, but I have used their lipsticks quite often, and this gloss does not disappoint in any way, it's not tacky or sticky and I love to blend it with my favorite lipcolor!
