Body souffle - edible body butter by Kama Sutra - review by Jul!a

Baby, You Smell Like Frosting

This wont give you an hour long massage, but it's not supposed to. It's best suited for quick rub downs less than 15 minutes or so, or just for an all over body lotion after a shower, bath, or any time of day.
Leaves skin feeling silky soft and smooth
Doesn't seem to have a flavor, Scent can be a little off-putting
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This souffle does work pretty well as a massage lotion, but it also works really well as an all over body lotion after a bath or shower, or any time of the day. No matter which way you choose to use it, you'll be left feeling soft and lightly flavored.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Kama Sutra's souffle has a fairly thick consistency. Thick in that if you tilt the jar on its side, you have to shake it to get any to come out. Of course if the jar lays on its side for any real considerable amount of time, the lotion will settle and ooze that way on its own. Not a big deal if you've got the lid on properly, but can be a problem if you don't have the lid on for whatever reason.

Now while it stays in the jar really nicely, it isn't thick in any other manner. It feels soft and creamy between the fingers. If you put too much on you can easily get that greasy 'too lotioned' feel, but you can also wipe off any excess on whatever spare towel or t-shirt you happen to have laying around.

Taste / Aroma

This souffle is available in four different scents\flavors: vanilla, chocolate, mint, and strawberry. I have the vanilla one and it smells just like a jar of frosting. You know the blue one from Pillsbury? Ya, just like that, almost sickly sweet. As far as tasting it goes, well, on the skin I can't really taste it at all, and seems to take on more of a spiced scent once applied to the skin as well. I can't quite put my finger on what random kitchen spice I'm catching, but it's there. If you eat it right out of the jar (which I don't recommend) you get a strong mixture of that random kitchen spice, and vanilla frosting (I had to, for the sake of science!)

The strength of the scent isn't any worse than most body lotions, so if you like the scent you have, that's a good thing, and if you don't like it, well, I don't know why you're still using it.


This worked well as a massage aid, although I almost prefer it for regular lotioning. It won't give you the hour long massage you're looking for, but it'll definitely last for a quick 5-10 minute rubdown. Once it gets a chance to soak into the skin, you're left feeling soft and silky. If you put too much on, you'll really need to rub and rub and try to transfer to different areas to get it all soaked in properly.

Neither my fiance or myself felt the need to make the mad shower dash when using this, but if you want it off right away, a washcloth and warm water and soap should take it right off.

There isn't much to the packaging, just the plastic jar and its lid. But leaving this out is perfectly fine as the whole thing just looks like a jar of fancy lotion. There's a little black panel on the back that says that this body souffle was designed for sensual massage, is delicately textured and kissable. If you make sure the lid is completely closed, this jar can be taken pretty much anywhere security clearances allow.

The bottom lists the ingredients as: water, ethylhexyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, glycerl stearate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, glycerin, dimethicone, cetearyl alcohol, flavor, polyacrylamide, C13-14 isoparrafin, laureth-7, PEG-100 stearate, carbomer, sodium saccharin, sodium hydroxide, potassium sorbate, tetrasodium EDTA, phenoxyethanol, yellow 5, and yellow 6. A caution for those with allergies or sensitivities, this product does contain glycerin (keep away from your nether regions) and an artificial sweetener.

A quick note for those with longer fingernails, to avoid getting this caught all up underneath your nails when digging out, curl a finger or two and swipe it out with your knuckles instead.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense


I so wanted this to be all sorts of awesome. But I just can't get into this particular vanilla all that much, so it doesn't get used very often. It lasts the entire 10 minute rubdown we'll give each other, and isn't too bad with massage stones either.

If I have the opportunity, I'll definitely try one or two of the other scents, but I can tell you right now that I won't be buying another vanilla one.
Follow-up commentary
I've noticed myself tending to prefer Shunga products to Kama Sutra, I'm really not sure why.

It still worked well for massages, and still worked well for all over moisturizing, but I still didn't care for the scent much, and therefore didn't use it much, so I passed it on to a friend of mine. She likes it a lot better than I did, and I'm glad it went to a good home.

I still wouldn't mind getting to try the other scents, but I probably won't buy them myself in the future.
