Allure February Issue: BeautyStat Reviews Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush

Allure Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow Mood Boosting Blush

Blush can make you look cheerful – but feel that way? That’s what Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Blush promises. We evaluated (click on the image above to enlarge).

THE SCIENCE:

The blush contains Euphoryl, a mood-boosting compound rich in Omega-3s. Studies done by the creator of the ingredient showed that applying it topically stimulated dopamine production. “It could work”, says cosmetic chemist and founder of BeautyStat.com, Ron Robinson, “but it would have to contain at least 1 percent Euphoryl.” (Physicians Formula won’t reveal how much is in the blush.)

THE COLOR:

Past research has shown that looking at a certain shade of pink causes a short term decrease in aggression, and this compact certainly doesn’t skimp on the color. But neither do most blushes.

THE SCENT:

Its blend of violet leaf (to calm), hyacinth (to increase happiness), and jasmine (for aphrodisiac qualities) smells sweet but doesn’t last . “Your olfactory senses adapt to smell on your face quickly, so you might feel a boost, but only for a few minutes,” says Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell and Taste Treatment Foundation. “While violet will relax, jasmine stimulate energy, so they could contradict.”

THE BOTTOM LINE:

The color is pretty, and the soft floral scent is appealing, if short lived. Still, this blush won’t put Prozac out of business.
