foundation insulation finishing

I'm doing some work for someone who has a "decorative" finish over pink (looks like 1.5" thick) insulation covering their foundation. There are many areas where this finish has become chipped and gouged, and areas where pieces are missing and cracked. The coating over the foam insul. looks like regular mortar mix, yet has a shine to the back of it, has brush strokes through it, and is less than 1/8" thick in most areas. The homeowner said it was a product called Pro Seal, but when I spoke with a local yard they said she likely meant Sil Pro, but based on the thickness Sil Pro should be applied and the thickness of what I'm dealing with I can't imagine it's the same product, unless it was applied poorly/too thin. Any help here? Thanks.

It sounds like it has to be removed. I don't understand what some people do to cement, block, brick or stone. It's maintenance free until people use products like that.

the insulation will need to be recovered with something so do a little more checking about the covering. don't remove the insulation it is needed to keep the concrete from sweating inside.
