The other day, after testing out a sample of Enessa Shea Body Soufflé ($35.50), I was reminded how emollient, yet not greasy, this type of "lotion" can be. The fact that these styles of creams still manage to be heavy-duty without taking it too far into the grease-pit range makes sense.
The word soufflé is past tense of the French verb souffler, which translates to "to blow up." Because these formulations are whipped, that's exactly how soufflés maintain their smoothing and softening qualities. Thinking about soufflés got me to thinking about mousses, and also got me to thinking about food. We'll save that part for Yum, but to find out more about soufflés and mousses when it comes to beauty, just keep reading.
