Every weekend, I look forward to going back home to semi-upstate New York and winding down after a long week in NYC. While I love the hustle and bustle of the city, nothing beats returning to crisp air, green grass, and the sound of nature. The two days I’m home I take my R&R very seriously. I know I don’t have the time or money (the woes of a college student) to spend at a spa so my pampering days are spent in the comfort of home.

VIDEO: He Says, She Says: BORGHESE Fango Delicato

One of the best parts about working with the men of Birchbox Man is hearing their opinions on the products and trends we’re testing out. They’ve insisted guys aren’t into red lipstick before (we’re still going to wear it anyways and we think that that idea may be incorrect), but occasionally they make some other interesting observations that we do want to go down in the books. That’s why we’ve started a new video series called He Says, She Says—an opportunity for one of our lady editors to sit down with our men’s editor, Martin, and chat about their different perspectives. First up, editor Candice Chan and Martin go over the benefits of a product we all love: BORGHESE’s Fango Delicato mud mask. You might be surprised to hear why each editor can’t get enough.
