First things first: just what is a body souffle? Though similar to an ordinary lotion in concept, body souffles are another way to refer to whipped moisturizers, which are formulated with higher levels of oils and lower levels of water for unparalleled smoothness. In French, souffle is past tense for the verb souffler, which translates to "to blow up"—and because these are whipped, that's exactly how they maintain their incredible softening properties.
