We all know chocolate can cure a sweet tooth, but did you know that just the smell alone can make you happier? Research has shown that the smell of chocolate can improve your mood and make you feel more relaxed. One study at the Cognition and Research Centre at Middlesex University measured brain activity and found that the smell of chocolate caused an emotional high. Other studies found that it significantly reduced theta brain activity, triggering relaxation.
And, it doesn’t stop there. Chocolate offers more than a sugar rush and emotional high. It’s super rich in antioxidants and nourishing moisturizers, which are known to promote overall health.
When Too Faced Founder and Creative Director, Jerrod Blandino, learned about the benefits of cocoa while having a chocolate facial at a Hawaiian spa, he was inspired to combine the power of this natural skin boosting ingredient with makeup. Our cocoa infused bronzer, Chocolate Soleil was launched in spring 2009 and became an instant obsession, followed by its lighter version, Milk Chocolate Soleil. Inspired by their success, we just launched our Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection, a delicious palette that satisfies your beauty craving with 16 irresistibly sweet shades pigmented with pure cocoa powder. Now that’s indulgence.
If a chocolate a day keeps the blues away, then our cocoa powder infused makeup collection is just what the beauty doctor ordered. It’s an instant pick-me-up for your face and your mood. All glam, no guilt.
