I got this body souffle by Ted baker as part of a collection of things and to be honest, I hated it! The smell wasn't at all sweet or nice; rather I found it to smell like chemicals. I was disappointed because the purple little pot with the pattern on it is extremely pretty. It is a white, thick cream, rubs into the skin nicely after a lot of massaging, like body butter but for me, the smell just completely put me off. What I ended up doing was emptying it out into the bin and squeezing some other cream into the small pot.
Ted baker is a well known brand and although their beauty products aren't that pricey, I would expect their quality to be a little better. Or at least smell nice. I am tempted to try other ted baker things but find myself always putting it back in fear of wasting money.
Even for a present, I wouldn't buy it. I do hope they improve on the quality of beauty products.
Now that the colder weather is upon us I am digging out my tubs of moisturiser as my skin appreciates a little extra pampering after baths and showers. What I am reviewing today is my 250ml tub of Ted Baker Bodywear Rich Body Soufflé; I received this as a Christmas present last year and am now nearly at the end of the tub, I am hoping to get it again under the Christmas tree soon.
The Soufflé comes in a nice sized tub with a screw off lid. On the base of the tub are directions for use and storage instructions, it also advises us that this product was tested on humans, Yay!!
When I unscrew the pot I am met with a pure white pot of cream, as this was described as Body Soufflé I was expecting to see something more aerated and whipped, the cream looks dense and like regular emollient cream.
A good sniff of the pot reveals that the rather dull looking cream is delicately perfumed with Jasmine, Rose, Pear and Apple. Underlying the scent is the base cream smell that smells buttery and rich.
Upon use I find the cream is smooth and a little bit greasy. It does not take long to massage into my skin and is absorbed shortly. My skin is left feeling soft and smooth and lightly scented. The Soufflé absorbs well and I am able to get dressed shortly after moisturising with out feeling sticky.
The scent of the Soufflé is not long lasting with it being so delicate and I like to layer it with other products from the Ted Baker Bodywear range. The scent does not clash with any perfume I am wearing; it is just a really enjoyable scent that I feel is suited to all age groups.
I can't track this down on the internet to give you an accurate price, but I do remember it being available in Boots for around £5 a tub and regularly on the the 3 for 2 offers.
Thank you for reading.
Today I am reviewing the Ted Baker Rich Body Souffle. I got this in a hatbox as a prize in a raffle last summer, and ted baker is a nice brand so I was quite excited about giving this a try.
It is pacakged in a 50ml tub that is a light pinky/purple. The base of the tub is a lighted, matte purple and the lid is more pink and glossy. I don't particularly like the tub as it is very unsanitary and I don't particularly like tub pacakging in general.
The actual cream is a white lotion texture, very light, not too thick like a body butter, its really nice. It is thicker than an ordianry lotion though. A little goes a very long way with this product. I scoop out a blob about 50p sized and that covers like a whole leg !!
So I scoop out the product, plac it on my skin and then massage it in and it is a really nice moisturiser. It leaves my skin feeling lightly moisturised but not too greasy or anything which is really nice. I put it on right before I go to sleep so after putting it on I get into my pajamas to seal in all the moisture.
I would really recommend this as a light moisturiser for normal skin, I think there are better ones out there for dry / oily but for normal skin it is great !!
The Ted Baker soufflé is a really think, creamy, rich body lotion. I was brought it as a present as part of a set and to be honest I wasn't expecting much. But I was very wrong as it is probably the best lotion I have used in a long time.
It smells really nice and after applying it only once I noticed that my skin was very soft. My partner even commented on how smooth legs were and asked what I had put on them. The results were long lasting as well, although I still liked to apply once a day in the mornings.
The only downside is that because it was sooo good I used it as an all over body lotion so it didn't last long enough. However, it wasn't wildly expensive so it wasn't too much of a problem.
I also liked the signature Teb Baker style purple packaging as its easily identifiable.
When it comes to Ted Baker stuff, including clothes and bags, its a brand I simply love. Of course I can't always afford an item of clothing or another bag from the range so have to make do with buying toiletries from the range instead and thankfully my local Boots store sells rather a few items I can treat myself to.
Recently I came across a small gift set in which a smaller version of the larger pot of this is included. Visually its the same looking pot, like I say only my one holds just 50ml of the 'souffle'. The pot is a light pink in colour and plastic and on the lid at the top of it, it simply twists on/off and on that we are told what it is and then on the sides of the pot we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, the size is stated (which I have listed already) and contact details for Ted Baker are given. This is a cute and girly pot and informative enough too and in this case I love the small travel size of it too.
Well the souffle is a white lotion really, not drippy and thick enough but pop it on the skin and it immediately sinks in with real ease. This has a wonderful, rather expensive and sophisticated aroma to it which is really difficult to explain but I shall of course! Its sweet and I guess slightly floral and oriental in its approach though it is a subtle, clean fragrance that lingers on the skin all day long.
This is easy to massage into the skin, for extra moisturisation we are told on the pot that we can also massage this into slightly damp skin to seal in moisture.
I like to massage this into everywhere, it leaves skin feel lightly moisturised though not greasy and with no feeling of residue on the skin at all and it simply leaves a lovely gentle fragrance there. A little of it goes a very long way indeed and I like the way it really doesn't contain any grease within it at all.
This is a nice and gentle, none irritating skin smoother and soother and I really do appreciate it!
Available in Boots stores costing about £5.00 a large tub of it!

Ted Baker Rich Body Soufflé.....
Ted Baker Rich Body Soufflé is sold in Boots stores and comes in two different sizes. You can buy the miniature tub of the product which holds 50 ml for the price of £2.55 pence. The larger tub which holds 250 ml is the tub which I have and although it was bought for me for a Christmas present, I know that the price was around the £6 region.
The look of the product is okay although I am not personally very keen on the mauve and pink colour scheme which this range has but the tub does its purpose in holding the product in and the lid, which is screw on and off, is easily removed so I really can't complain.
The product itself is a cream type soufflé which needs to be applied to slightly damp skin once you have got out of the shower or bath. I have before used a product such as this and have to admit to finding it strange that I was applying cream to damp skin.
The use of the Soufflé is easy and a little of the thick and luxurious cream does indeed go a long way to giving the body good coverage. The smell of the cream is really nice and a fruity scent mixed with Jasmine and rose. The smell is not overly strong so doesn't make you feel sick like some other products I have.
The soufflé does take rather a long time to sink in but I think by the time I have dried and straightened my hair it is safe to start putting some clothes on! The cream is wonderfully thick which is why it probably takes so long.
The results when using the cream are good and my skin is soft and supple along with cleansed and fresh. I liked the fragrance as it wasn't too strong but the only downside I can see is the fact that it doe stake a long time to soak into the skin. The tub states that the cream gives "Rapid Absorption" but I really don't feel this is the case when I use the product.
It has lasted me a fair amount of time seeing as I have had it since Christmas, but it is now coming to the end of the pot. Thinking of it I probably wouldn't buy this Ted Baker Soufflé for myself again. I wouldn't mind using it if it was given as a present but for me I feel there are nicer creams which I prefer to use.
On the whole I think this is a 3 star product because although it was okay, I found it to be lacking in a few areas and the drying aspect of the cream was probably the most frustrating thing.
Not really recommended either.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for a taking the time to read.
This is a lovely rich body cream which smells great, feels great and comes in a very pretty pot.
It will set you back around £6 for a 250 ml tub which is quite big and I think that's a really good price because it works really well. If you're not sure you can also buy mini pots in Boots for just over £2.
The tub is large and round and pale pinky purple with a deeper pinky purple lid. On the lid is the Ted Baker logo against a really pretty background with pictures of cups of tea, slippers, baths, radios, candles etc etc. Very girly.
On the bottom of the tub it brags that it will transport you to heaven and keep your skin feeling soft, intensively moisturised and beautifully supple. It's all true. Well maybe not the heaven bit but the rest of it.
The smell is apparently that of jasmine, rose, pear and apple. I'd say it's quite fruity with a hint of floweriness but probably wouldn't have guessed those particular fruits and flowers! It is lovely though. A very rich and deep perfume. When you put it on your skin the smell does become lighter and I think I can even detect apple when it's on.
The souffle is very white and light and fluffy but thick. It's an unusual texture for a body cream - quite like souffle really and it works really well. It's thick and sumptuous without being heavy or oily.
When you smear it on your skin it soaks in beautifully and leaves your skin feeling unbelievably soft. It works on even the driest skin to make it silky smooth and moisturised.
The effects last for a long time - you'll have baby soft, sweet smelling skin for hours. You don't need much either which makes it excellent value for money.
There is no list of ingredients on the tub and the web address given doesn't help with that either which is slightly irritating. It just tells you it has cocoa butter in but no indication of what else. It is lovely stuff but given that it is possibly a bit too white and the perfume is quite strong and not altogether natural smelling, I'd be interested to know what's in it!
I would really recommend this if you want an intensive body moisturiser that isn't heavy and smells lovely.
I was given this body souffle for Christmas in a gift set last year but it can be purchased on it's own for just over £2 from Boots. It is in an attractive 50ml pink screw top tub and is the same consistancy as a moisturiser cream so I am presuming its just a posh name (body souffle) to make it sound good. You only need a small amount as it goes a long way and it does not leave a greasy residue like some moisturisers on your skin and also absorbs quickly leaving a gorgeous lemony smell. My skin is quite sensitive but I have found that this is fine for me, no irritation, although I have not used it on my face. My boyfriend has also tried this as a handcream and rates it highly saying it leaves his hands feeling soft as he in the construction trade so as you can imagine his hands are quite rough.
I got this product last year as part of a gift set I think. I loved the packaging, but had never really been into body moisturiser. After having a sort out and going throguh my bits and pieces I thought I would bring this out onto display as its packaging is just so nice.
Like I said iv never really used moisturiser as I always felt quite damp on my skin after use, and when I have come out of the bath or shower and get changed I like to feel really dry. It has a fresh perfumed distintive fragance to it, and seems very more luxurious than your standard moisturiser. Now when I apply this its great as it sinks into the skin and blends in great. Some moisturisers dont move nowere and you can't rub them in, however a dollup of this on your shin, really does move around and do all over your lower leg. The reason as to why I think I liked this product so much and went back using it was due to the fact that I noticed it was a SOUFFLE. Now I recently purchased a Boots No7 Souffle face moisturiser and noticed that this felt great on my face also and sunk in without any damp residue being left. So to summerize I came to the conclusion that souffle named products must be whipped or formed in a differnt way, and to me really blend into the skin a lot nicer. This formula looks quite thick in the tub, however as soon as you touch it, your hands just sink into it.
It suggests that you apply this product onto slightly damp skin for rapid absorption. I do notice it blends easier and quicker on slightly damp skin, however I have used it dry also and its still great.
Jasmine, rose, pear & apple is what is used in the product to create that fresh feminine scent along with coco butter.
250ml is a really good sized tub, however I havent been using it religiosuly every night, just when its at hand. I mean I have been using it pretty reguarly. Im just surprised how considering its not been daily Iv already used its all up practically within the space of a couple of months. Im not sure though this might be average for this type of stuff. Once opened it does last 24 months, which is really good I think considering most products tend to only last 12 month, some even only 6.
The packaging is wodnerfully girly and very elegant. Its a dusky rose pink colour I would say, with a pretty pattern in a lighter color on top of this base color. Its only when you look really carefully at the pattern you notice its made up of slippers, candles, mobile phones, baths, hairdryers, books ect to really add to the girly image. I have hit PAN on the product (which means that I have hit the base of the pot) So I think I proberbly have approx 2, 3 at a squeeze applications left, and ill be scooping every last remains of this from round the sides. Im even going to reuse the pot, for either my next moisturiser or just a pretty earing container maybe.
I would deffinatly repurchase this item again. However im not sure who expensive it is, so it maye have to be an indulgent product, but this deffinatly works for me, and has converted me to moisturiser ... or souffle at least :)
Hope this helps
