I am lucky enough to have received several 5g satchets of Crabtree & Evelyn's Citron Honey and Coriander Body Souffle. Crabtree & Evelyn claim that this product is a light, whipped, easily absorbed cream with lemon, fruit and sugar derived AHAs to smooth away roughness and even skin texture. Citron, Honey & Coriander Body Souffle is formulated with beneficial fruit oils leave skin conditioned and radiant. They add that the fragrance is enticing Citron, Lemon Leaf, a 'bite' of peppery coriander and subtle woody accents. 225g of this product can be purchased from C&E for £22.
The Souffle is thick and creamy, almost like whipped cream. It definitely feels more luxurious compared to bog standard body lotions. It glides along my skin effortlessly and feels silky to the touch. My skin feels softened and quenched after applying this, my skin does feel smoother. The fragrance is exotic, but subtle and I would think that it would be suitable for female and male use. The lemon fragrance is refreshing and uplifting and definitely not synthetic.
I find that a 5g sachet is enough to use to cover my arms, legs and chest; so a little does go a long way. The Souffle is absorbed within around 30 seconds and I am able to dress - no waiting around. When the Souffle has absorbed into my skin, there is no tacky residue, just a silky feeling on the skin.
My skin does feel softened and smoother thanks to the AHAs in the product. Despite the thickness of the cream, this is not overly moisturising on the skin. Is enough for everyday moisture and for normal skin, but for those who require extra moisturisation, you will not get this from this product. The fragrance lingers for a few hours on the skin, at the end of the day it is only just identified if I press my nose to my skin.
I have been using this product every day for a week and have not experienced any discomfort or irritations from this cream.
Overall, this is a nice product and I would use it again. It does last a long time, but I do not think the effects of the cream justify me spending £22.
