“ Brand: Boots / Souffle / Type: Souffle / What it does: Refreshes, „
I admit i'm not sure if Boots still sell this, as i've had so much body product to work my way through and this has taken me some time and i'm now onto this one!
The Boots fresh range in my view is their take on Lush and the Body Shop. The range isn't as expensive, and often they have a 3 for 2 on the whole range, so saving you more money!
So what is a body Souffle? Just a body lotion. When reading the description I thought it would be a lotion but just a bit more lighter, but it seems much the same consistency, perhaps a little lighter. You only need a little bit of this to rub into an area. Although it rubs in well, I find that my skin seems to stay a bit greasy for a while afterwards. it's like this takes ages to absorb into your skin.
The packaging is alright. It is 200g and a wide round glass tub. So you have to scoop the product out into your paw and apply. Not that practical, as I got the product under my nails and had to scrub my hands after. At least you can get every last dreg out of this though. The jar is see through and you can see the light blue cream through the glass. This has a light blue sticker on the front and back describing the product, and it has a silver screw lid.
So what does it smell like? it smells like an airy, cloudy smell. Kind of like the air outside early in the morning. just a nice fresh scent that isn't too perfumed or overpowering.
This cost me £4, but I bought as part of a 3 for the price of 2 with 2 other items from the range.
I would buy again, as I like the Fresh range and I find it scents mt skin well and moisturises when it finally absorbs.
A nice body cream.
I was in one of those moods, wandering around Boots, wanting something to buy as a little treat. I then saw the body souffle, had a smell and thought "yummy" and I bought one. Well, bad move. The product does smell quite gorgeous and it has a nice pot and everything looks just fine until you try to use it on your skin and here's the catch - it takes AGES to absorb. Even if you don't use much it is still quite hard to get it all to be absorbed and you have to work at it. This is a shame because the souffle just smells fantastic but it is such hard work... So these days I still use it, but only when I am not in a hurry as using this souffle doubles the time it takes for me to moisturize in the mornings. So for a much better result I now use the fantastic body butters from the Body Shop which also smell nice but don't require a full workout to be absorbed.
Body moisturisers tend to be simply a matter of taste. But here is a moisturiser that I defy you to dislike. Body souffle is a very accurate description of this product. It is light and fluffy and has the texture of partially cooked meringue. And it smells so good that I was quite tempted to try and taste it although there is a huge warning on it that says 'delectable but not edible'. But however good a moisturiser smells and looks, the most important factor is that it works well. Firstly, this goes on like a very thick cream and you do have to work quite hard to get it all absorbed. The one bonus of this is that you need so relatively little of it that a 200g pot will last for ages. And you'll work up some great muscles rubbing it in. The second advantage is that it works very well too - my skin felt really soft and silky for the next couple of days and it smelt fantastic for the first few hours. It does cost more than I would usually pay for a moisturiser but it is so effective that I think it is worth it. I will definetely be keeping this one for a rainy day!
