since i have to use a body lotion or cream after each shower or bath, my dry skin requires it, i seek out ones that are going to give me a nice aromatherapy experience with a scent that is comforting and enjoyable. the scents of these two souffles are divine. the raspberry has a nice fresh tart smell, not too sweet and the almond glaze has a rich nutty bakery scent. i'm so happy with this set because they pair so well with so many of my philosophy shower gels. the almond is perfectl with any of the bakery scents and the raspberry is nice to use after any of the fruit scented gels.
i love the rich creamy texture of these soufflés. they make my skin feel so soft and smooth, but most importantly very hydrated. also, they are not greasy, you can put your clothes on without that wet feeling on your skin. I'd love to see more of these soufflés year-round.
I love this souffle set. I bought it and kept one and gave the other to a friend. I kept the raspberry and gave the almond. I liked the almond but something about that raspberry i had to have it! I feel that this is the perfect gift to give to someone 'just because'. They make your skin soooo soft and velvety. And the scent lasts for a little then slowly fades away. Not strong at all. Just perfectly scented.
Philosophy sent me this gift just days before I went into the hospital. I used them everyday after bathing. The nurses wanted to know what I was wearing and I told them. I got a lot of compliments. No too strong or overpowering. I love these. Thanks Philosophy!
I am so happy I bought this gift set, I am going back for more! Wish I could dive into it! It reminds me of pudding, but smells like honey glazed donuts. Makes me hungry when I use it. I like to use this on my feet and hands overnight while wearing socks/spa gloves and my skin feels like silk.
I was so excited to see that philosophy was doing a souffle set and this one is incredible. I think you have to really love the foodie scents to enjoy this one. The raspberry glazed smells like a raspberry buttercream frosting with just a hint of a vanilla cake mixed in. Almond has a more grown up scent that is less bakery and more sophistication. Warm, comforting with a slight vanilla, nutty scent. Lovely!
Both are very hydrating, absorb easily and leave my dry skin feeling cushioned and comfortable. These also have some nice staying power which i love.
I had high hopes for this set since I am a big fan of the thicker body butters. I was hoping the soufflés would be thicker than the lotions and they are. But the scents to me are way off. There was a weird yeasty/raw dough or playdoh scent to these and not a yummy bakery scent like I had hoped.
