Laura Mercier Body Souffle - Creme De Pistache

Recently I was lucky enough to win a pretty amazing blog giveaway by the lovely Laura at LibertyLovesMakeup who has become one of my lovely blogging friends and is genuinely a sweetheart :) Honestly, have a nose at her blog because it's fab. Anyway, when I entered this particular giveaway I had everything crossed because the prizes were right up my alley! I won an Alpha H Balancing Cleanser, Miracle Oil (dupe for Moroccan Oil) and this little gem, the Laura Mercier Body Souffle in Crème de Pistache (or Pistachio to us common folk).


I'm going to review the Alpha H cleanser in a few weeks when I've given it a thorough test drive and the same with the Miracle Oil, so if they're of interest to you then make sure to click the follow button so you don't miss them. But today, we're focussing on this luxurious little gem.
I am fast becoming a huge Laura Mercier fan, I love the Silk Crème foundation too and I had been desperate to try one of these body soufflés after having a sniff of them all in Selfridges a few months ago. By the way, whoever names these products is a sales genius! How can we resist things like 'silk creme' and 'souffle'? Anyway this is basically a body cream but it's heavily scented and super thick and creamy. Let's start by saying this smells divine! Literally smells like rubbing pistachio ice cream all over you (except it's not that cold), but you get the idea. Although it looks really thick in the tub, once applied it sinks into your skin and leaves you feeling soft and moisturised but without any greasiness. Perfect!

If you're near to a Laura Mercier counter than I highly recommend having a sniff of their soufflés. They have a Crème Brulee one which quite frankly I very nearly ate when I tried it... I do prefer this scent though. It almost has a slight marzipan smell to it, so if you like marzipan, you'll love this! They also have Fresh Fig, Almond & Coconut and Ambre Vanille. Yum.
I'm definitely going to save this for special occasions... Although I'm not quite sure what constitutes a special occasion for body cream? But I do know I won't be using this every day as it's just too luxurious (and very expensive!) Due to the price and general high end feel of it, I think it would make a beautiful Christmas present, so get it on your list for Santa girls!
If you fancy treating yourself, you can pick them up at Space NK for £43.50. Yikes! - Link


  1. I've heard such amazing things about this and the scent is fantastic, however the boy souffle is a bit too pricey for me, so an excellent dupe is the Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Butter cream, they are almost identical. Xx

    1. Ooh thank you Charlotte, I love a dupe! I'll have to check that out.. I adore this for a treat and I'm lucky I won it but don't think I'd purchase it as it's really pricey x

  2. Lovely review and thank you so much for the shout out sweetie
