When I bought my favorite perfume, Musc Ravageur by Frederic Malle, a couple of years ago during Barney’s Fall Beauty Event, I qualified for their fabulous beauty bag of luxury cosmetics.
The items in the good sized dop kit-style bag (reviewed here) totaled well over $200. I’ve used most of the deluxe sample size and a couple of full size cosmetics since then. But a number of the samples became favorites, and over the couple of years since I got that initial Barney’s Beauty Bag, I’ve told you about several products that I feel strongly about. Here’s another one.
I received a deluxe sample size jar of MoroccanOil Body Soufflé in my Barney’s bag. However, I had seen the brand before. MoroccanOil is one of the haircare brands that my salon, Vidal Sassoon, sells to its customers. But Sassoon doesn’t use it on their customers, so I had no idea about how good MoroccanOil is till I got the sample of the Body Soufflé from Barney’s.
I would say that the unusual and highly appealing scent of the Fragrance Originale was what originally got me. The scent is floral, but it is married with a deep, nutty scent. Highly unusual and absolutely addicting IMO. I don’t usually like florals, but the nuttiness brings it to a new plane. The scent stays close to the skin, but it is very long-lasting. When I use this Body Soufflé, I skip the perfume.
The Body Soufflé is whipped and lightweight. It is formulated from argan oil and shea butter, but the whipping makes it look, at a distance, almost like meringue – it has “soft peaks”. When I apply it, it soaks in immediately, does not feel greasy, and it is hydrating for hours. It gives my skin a coated, protected feeling.
I haven’t tried it yet, but MoroccanOil has a Body Butter as well. Both the Soufflé and Body Butter come in three scents:
One thing that sort of bugs me is that though the packaging is gorgeous – a large transparent heavy plastic tub that is tinted the signature “MoroccanOil aqua” to identify the Fragrance Originale, it is overpackaged, even though it is recyclable. Through the transparent aqua plastic, I can see the much smaller inner jar that holds the product. Why do that? The tub holds 6.4 fl.oz./190 ml that is still a fair amount.
At $56, MoroccanOil Body Soufflé is a splurge, at least for me it is. But it’s wonderful stuff that I truly enjoy luxuriating in from time to time! And you can buy the travel size (1.5 oz.) on its own for about $20 or in travel collections with other MoroccanOil products. The Body Soufflé can be purchased on the MoroccanOil website, at Barney’s, at Sephora, Nordstrom, and lots of other retailers.
