The Beauty of Chocolate

Is a Solution for:
Cellulite, Stretch Marks, Sagging Skin
Reviewed by Shyema February 3, 2010 13 Comments

Another reason why chocolate is awesome: it not only makes you feel better, but it can also make you look better.

Dark chocolate is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals (slowing down the aging process). It also contains a high level of flavonoids, which keep the heart healthy. Most recently, German researchers have found dark chocolate to even decrease the damaging effects of UV rays, making it a covetable sunscreen.

While it's argued whether topical cocoa-infused products (like Ikove's Acai Chocolate Shampoo) carry these same benefits, the comforting smell of chocolate itself is worth the treat -- just try Nutra-Lift's White Chocolate Body Butter and prepare to hold yourself back from licking it. To revitalize and soften your skin, be sure to also try Amala's Cocoa Bean Rejuvenating Face Polish.

Ingredients in Amala Cocoa Bean Rejuvenating Face Polish:

Water (aqua), simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba ) seed wax, alcohol*, theobroma cacao (cocoa) extract*, glycerin, decyl glucoside, polyglyceryl-3 stearate, sodium stearoyl lactylate, stearic acid, xanthan gum, thobroma cacao (cocoa) husk, amaranthus caudatus seed oil*, malpighia punicifolia (acerola) fruit extract*, carapa guaianensis seed oil*, hippophae rhamnoides oil*, bertholletia excelsa seed oil*, glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract*, fragrance (parfum), vanilla planifolia fruit extract*, citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil*, rosa damascena flower oil, cananga odorata flower oil*, citrus auratum bergamia (bergamot) peel oil*, plantago lanceolata leaf extract*, certraria islandica extract*, salix alba (willow) bark extract*, tocopherol, silver sulfate, lactic acid

    I would be honored to review the NuNAAT hair care products! I have fine, wavy, hair that goes to mid-back. I consider my hair my best feature! Because it's fine, it really tends to frizz. I just became familar with this site...I can't believe what I was missing! I JUST ordered the Nutra-Lift line, because of all the wonderful things said about it. I also ordered Max Green Scalp Rescue conditioner. It came yesterday, so I couldn't wait to try it out. I LOVE it! It sure is great at detangling for all you girls with tangly hair! I am the mother of three and I'm always looking for GREAT hair care products...anything to make my life easier! Your website has helped me pick great products, and I would love to review this product for you! I am somewhat of a hair product "junkie" and I KNOW what I like and dislike. Expect nothing but honesty.

    It all sounds amazing. I know from personal experience that chocolate makes everything better. Its a great carrier, good combined with medicinal herbs. I think it works synergystically with alot of ingredients and would love to see its wonderful effects on my hair and olfactory senses. Anticipated euphoria... thank you

    I started the Atkins diet 2 days ago. TIA would help me stay with it if I could put chocolate on my head instead of in my mouth! Besides, I just purged my obscene collection of shampoos & conditioners so there is now space on the shampoo bar in my shower for some new products. I'm still testing the Enjoy Hydrating shampoo I read about here (it may be the only non-SLS shampoo to make the grade for me!), but I would willingly interrupt this program to try a new line that sounds likes it's made for my blonde, tinted, blow-dried, hot-ironed, fine, wavy hair that easily frizzes. Maybe NuNAAT will return both my hair and my waistline to earlier splendor.

    I have long wavy hair and would love to try the Chocolat Special line. I had a baby 7 weeks ago and my hair needs some serious TLC. My highlights and lowlights are growing out and the current cold weather is not helping matters either. Thank you.
