Chocolate that can help with ageing. Am I reading this right, I hear you say? Well, yes, you are in fact! Read our Esthechoc review here.
Esthechoc is “The world’s first beauty chocolate” which scientists at Cambridge Chocolate Technology have developed after 10 years of research and investigation.
“Esthechoc boasts incredible skin enhancing properties. A daily portion (7.5 grams – 38kcal) increases the level of antioxidants in the skin, improving its microcirculation, raising its oxygen level and preventing ageing.”
Does Esthechoc work?
My honest answer is, I’m not 100% sure.
I received my box of Esthechoc three weeks ago and I had to eat a square everyday which was such a chore….not! The chocolate is quite rich, being dark chocolate but it satisfies your chocolate craving for the day. It came in a lovely bag and your chocolates come in a box, divided up into weeks, cute right?
“Skin ageing is a natural and long-term process that is sped up by various external and internal factors, such as stress, environmental pollution, UV radiation, smoking or poor diet. These factors can cause the skin to lose resiliency and firmness that in turn results in malnutrition and hypoxia of cells and tissues, and a slowing down of skin regeneration. All these processes may be effectively inhibited by exposure to the right amount of Epicatechin Polyphenol and the strongest antioxidant known to science: Astaxanthin.”
The chocolate contains ‘70% cocoa and combines two antioxidants that contain the strongest anti-ageing properties: cocoa flavanols and astaxanthin carotenoid.’ After three weeks you should start to see results and your skin should feel firmer, soft and more radiant. Being 25 I’m not 100% sure whether I would see the real benefit with this because luckily, my skin is still subtle and doesn’t show signs of ageing but I gave this my best shot.
The first week was great, I was eating one every day and just continuing with my normal skin routine. The second week, I have to admit that I did forget a few days so it has taken me longer then the three weeks because I had to actually set myself a reminder! There are times when it can taste a bit overwhelming but honestly, after you have had your square, you don’t fancy anything else sweet so there are benefits of eating this chocolate!
“Development of the beauty chocolate took 10 years of extensive and independent research and numerous trials carried out by Dr. Ivan Petyaev. During the tests that proved the efficiency of the patented Astacelles technology, 3,000 women aged between 50 and 60 included Esthechoc chocolate as part of their daily menu for three weeks. After this period, the biomarkers and metabolic parameters of their skin were brought back to a level typical of people aged between 20 and 30, thus the skin’s physiology was dramatically improved. Esthechoc is suitable for all skin types and is clinically proven to work in three weeks.”
My overall Esthechoc review
After finishing my three weeks, I have seen no real difference in my skin but there is no reason to say that if I was in my late 40s, early 50s that these wouldn’t work, just like any anti-ageing cream and what woman doesn’t enjoy chocolate!
