Calorie-Free Dessert Tonight: ME!

Sometimes it is best to pay a bit more when you find a high quality product, even if it means pinching pennies elsewhere in the budget.

I love this body souffle and highly recommend it - BUT - I recommend that you pay a little bit more and buy it in the regular size versus the "petite" size. You'll get a better value for your money.

I have yet to find another product that smells good AND tastes good like this does.
Published:

Use

This is a water-based souffle that can be used anywhere on the exterior of the body. According to the package, this body souffle is "designed for sensual massage, this luscious, kissable, finely whipped cream moisturizer moisturizes deliciously and melts away completely with water."

Basically, unless you want to use this to simply moisturize the dry areas of your body like your hands, elbow and knees,put it anywhere you want your partner to kiss or lick. The souffle has not only a strawberry smell but has a strawberry and cream taste also. In other words, it is designed to be licked off if you wish.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This is a very rich cream that is about medium level of thickness. It is not as solid as a body butter but it is not as thin as a body lotion that pours from a tube.

When you open the jar and get a small amount with your finger and put it on your skin, the cream stays in place until you massage it into your body. It feels very soft and creamy and there is no feeling of stickiness or greasiness to it. It gave my hands a soft satin feeling.
    • Creamy
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

I love the scent of this cream. You can smell the strawberry scent as soon as you open the jar. While it is a fairly strong scent, it does not have an overpowering feel to it. It reminds me a bit of walking into the grocery store and smelling the strawberries as you walk by them. The scent is very inviting and makes my mouth start to water.

The taste reminds me of strawberries and cream or the strawberry cream cheese you can buy in tubs to put on bagels. It isn't a strong "cream cheese" taste and that sounds wrong because it is more strawberries and cream. However, what I mean is, it smells like a strawberry creme that you might put on a bagel or toast. It can have a bit of a waxy taste to it if you have two or three tastes, however, there is no aftertaste to it.
    • Light taste
    • Smells good

Performance

I felt a difference in my skin immediately and it stayed that way for hours. The scent lasted a long time also and I kept wanting to bring my hands up to my face to smell them.

I am not sure if I would recommend this as much for a massage because it absorbs into the skin fairly quickly. I consider it more of a very luxurious, thick body lotion that I would use after taking a shower or bath.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting

Packaging

This souffle comes in two different sizes. I am reviewing the petite size which is 1.8 ounces (50 ml). This is a great size to stick in your purse if you want to moisturize your hands during the day while you are out and about. At the bottom of this review, I'm including a link to the 7.5 ounce size because that is really a better price for ounce and once you know that you like this souffle, I'd encourage you to buy the larger size. The smaller size is $5.55 per ounce and the larger size is $2.53 per ounce. I plan to buy the larger size for my bathroom and use that to refill this smaller jar when I run out.

I would like to point out that the 1.8 ounce size jar is "travel friendly" and you can travel with it. I did not think you could until I looked at a kit I bought of empty travel size bottles and the jar was a 2 ounce size.

The souffle in both sizes is in a jar with a twist off cover. You must reach into the jar with your fingertip or something else to get the souffle out. For those who are nervous about this due to germs, you may want consider getting a package of makeup spatulas. These are cheap enough that you can even dispose of them after a single use, if you wish. You may be able to find them at your local drugstore or discount store.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

I did some research on "body souffle" to find out what makes it different from body butters and body lotions. It was very hard to do find good information and I visited several sites, most of which sold competitors' products, so I can't really share the links.

However, here is what I learned.

There are three basic types of moisturizers that are sold. These descriptions are not regulated by the FDA as far as I could tell. The difference between what they are labeled depends upon the oil to water ratio of the ingredients.

"Lotion" has the most water and is the thinnest of the three types of moisturizers. It can be poured onto the skin and is great for daily use. Since it has the most amount of water, it will be quickly absorbed into the skin. However, because it has the most amount of water, it will also sink in and "dissipate" faster. This means you'll have to reapply it the most often.

The next moisturizer is the "cream/souffle" moisturizer. These normally have a lower water to oil ratio which makes them thicker. They will often have the consistency of vanilla frosting or whipped cream. Since these have less water, it will take them longer to sink into your skin. Creams are great for the dry areas of the body like hands, elbows, heels, knees, etc. This type of moisturizer is often considered a must if you are a doctor, nurse, hairstylist, manicurist, etc. because these types of people have to wash their hands many times every day.

The final category is the "butter" group. These are made up of solid oils with little or no water. They will have an appearance of butter because they are solid. When they come into contact with skin, they will melt and because it seems a bit heavy at first compared to the other moisturizers, they may give you a feeling of greasiness. This is because they don't have much water in them. Because they are so thick and because your body will retain them so long, these are great for night time treatment of your body, especially the dry areas.

Here is an example to show the consistency of three different moisturizers:



The product on the far left is Bella Flore Love Me Tender Hand Cream which comes in a pump bottle.

The middle example is the strawberry creme body souffle.

The moisturizer on the far right is the Venus Peach Body Butter which also comes in a jar like the body souffle.

Personal comments

I want to explain my personal rating system to you here because you may be surprised to see that sometimes I love the smell and the product works well - but it only gets three stars. It has to do more than smell good - it has to be a good value.

First of all, if a product smells good (no chemical smell or bad after smell) and does what it should - I will automatically give it three stars.

If the product is priced reasonably well to the point that I'd give it as a gift at that price or be willing to ask for it from my husband as a gift - then I will give it four stars. If I wouldn't normally ask for it unless it was on sale or would buy it on sale but not at normal price - I'll give it four stars.

But for a product to be five stars - it better smell good, perform well AND be priced at something my budget can allow without me wanting to grimace every time I use it because of the cost.

I love bath and shower (and body) products and they are one of my major weaknesses. However, I have learned over the years of experimenting that expensive doesn't always equal better quality. Mind you - I'm not someone who is overly worried about parabens so I don't judge quality by whether something is paraben free - I judge it by how it makes me feel.

With the vast array of products that are on the market, there is a wide selection for me to choose from and still be happy without spending an arm and a leg.

So I try to do my reviews from the perspective of someone who is budget-mindful and may have kids and a house payment and is saving points for those one or two things she dreams about but can't quite afford.

I hope this helps you understand how I do my bath and body product reviews.

For this product, I am rating it 5 stars. I do think it is high priced if you buy it in the "petite" size jar. However, with Eden Fantasy's excellent return policy, I am planning on buying the body souffle in the cool mint creme with my next large purchase because I know I can return it if I don't like it. If I do like it, I will simply use a small travel size container that I can buy at the discount store and make my own "petite" size.
