Beauty Bargain: Mood Boosting Blush?

This is the online description of Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Blush:

  • Ultra-soft and blendable blushing powder features a fresh and vibrant mix of blushing tones infused with a pop of color to create a healthy glow.
  • Multi-reflective pearls provide a soft iridescence to highlight contour and add radiance to cheeks.
  • Infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress.
  • The sweet scent of Violet provides a feeling of joy each time you apply.

    Wow. Color me happy, indeed.

    Well, Allure magazine put this Prozac-in-a-blush to the test. Cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson explained that in order for the Euphoryl to take effect, the product would have to contain at least 1% for the mood-boosting compound to work. And Physicians Formula won’t reveal how much Euphoryl is in the blush.However, the scientists solemnly agreed the color and pattern of the blush is certainly cheerful. (Which it totally is. I’d buy it just to gaze at it whenever I felt blue.)

    And while it smells divine, your olfactory senses adapt to smell on your face quickly. So while you may feel a brief rush of yummy goodness, it doesn’t have a long-lasting effect.

    Bottom line: The blush is pretty, and smells good (if short-lived), but don’t flush your anti-depressants down the toilet.


    But for $11.95, it is a pretty darn cute blush.

    Available at drugstores.
