Eat your way through acne with Borba skin-care chocolates


If there is a universal word that is synonymous with adolescence, it is acne. The one thing I remember about acne is that all the ugly break-outs always mysteriously and precisely surfaced just before important events. And not to mention those frantic, vain attempts at appeasing them with expensive creams and weird looking home-made concoctions. To add to this, the primary advice given by those clued-up on acne remedies was a very painful one to follow - avoid sweets and chocolates as both of them will surely give you zits.

Well, time to introduce you to a contrary opinion - Borba, a manufacturer of cosmetics and “ingestible skin-care products,” has released the “Chocolate Clarifying Bar,” a Swiss dark chocolate that contains the patented Borba “Skin Balance Clarifying Aqua-Less Crystalline Powder” to promote skin clarity, prevent break-outs and reduce redness and irritation associated with acne.

If this works, pampering yourself with chocolate remorselessly was never so easy – that is if you are a chocolate-lover looking for an acne remedy. The Borba skin care chocolate is available online only at Nordstrom. You could also visit Borba's retail locator for more outlets.

Via Strange New Products.

I love chocolate, but the price is a bit much. Do you send samples? by mail?


The chocolates have to be bought from Nordstrom (check the article). No, I guess they do not send samples - but you could always check with the retailers, and who knows, maybe you could get lucky!


I just bought a Borba chocolate bar today, from the Pure Beauty store in Washington DC. It was great!

I love dark chocolate and I love Clarifying Borba so it was a match in heaven.

It is a hearty and "heavy" bar so you might need some time to eat it. It took me a good 15-20 minutes to finish all the blocks.

I am going to buy some more bars and try to make some brownies or add it into the Williams & Sonoma Molten Cake Mix for some extra kick.
