Carol’s Daughter: Ecstacy Gel and Body Butter

How my family knows what products to get me as gifts is such a mystery to me. I don’t live with any of them so how do they know that I DON’T have this and have never tried that? It’s amazing, I tell ya! I got Carol’s Daughter Ecstacy Gel and Body Butter for Christmas ’09 and um, wow…

Is that a WOW-good or WOW-bad? Hit the jump to read on.

Ecstasy Shea Souflee

Price: 3 out of 5 ($13 from
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What it claims:
“This luxurious formula is light and fluffy like a soufflé, but moisturizes skin with the intensity of a butter. It’s packed with natural butters and oils to effectively nourish and hydrate dry, parched skin for a soft and velvety appearance.

The perfect blend of succulent nectars shines throughout this fruit medley. Accented with Egyptian musk, precious amber, as vanilla bourbon completes this captivating fragrance.” (source)

The truth:
This stuff smells soooo sweet!

What I loved about it: I love the consistency. It is perfect for the winter time.

What I didn’t like:
The packaging isn’t too hot. When you have used up at least half of the souflee, you literally have to do a 3-finger reeeeach to get to the bottom of the pot.

Overall: I love love love it. The sweet smell is rather addicting. The souflee consistency does a great job at moisturizing even the driest skin. And the scent lasts all day. Loves it!

Ecstasy Body Cleansing Gel


Price: 3 out of 5 ($13.50 from
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What it claims:
“A natural soap blend, derived from coconut, olive and jojoba oils combined with exotic aromas for a gentle rich lather that leaves skin fresh, clean, rejuvenated and moisturized. Perfect shower or bath. ” (source)

The truth:
Just as good as the souflee!

What I loved about it:  Hmmm…the smell! It smells like a baked apple pie drizzled with honey. Hmmm…

What I didn’t like:

Overall: By the time you will have read this review, I will be on my second bottle of this gel. First of all…it comes out of the bottle like honey. It isn’t sticky but looks like sweet nectar goodness. The gel consistency lathers well and rinses off easily leaving you with silky smooth skin.

I love love love this line. And so does every one else in the world because it seems to be sold out quite often on the Carol’s Daughter website. Anyone try anything from Carol’s Daughter Ecstasy line?

    I really like the CD body cleansing gels, but I was not really sold on the body lotions or the body butters. I may have to try the souflee.

    My mom has the Almond Cookie Shea Souflee and she loves it and she is almost done with the jar. We also have the Khoret Amen Hair Oil and I love it! I love how it nurishes your hair and relieving dry, light scalp.

    I have to agree with Anonymous. The only thing I've come to really love from CD is the Browning Oil. The rest of the stuff is just ok to me. I have tried the cleansers, soufle, butters, and hair products. Just doesn't do it for me.

    Great post!

    I'm new to Carol's Daughter products, and I've been mulling over the Shea Souffle for quite some time now. I need to pick up some Hair Milk for my daughter today, so I think I'll get this for me! Thanks for the review.

    This is Jazz and Imani!!

    I was so excited to see this post about Carols Daughter because I am a new fan. I love their hair products. I feel like they are what my hair has always been missing.

    As far as the skin stuff some I like some not so much. The scrubs, souffles and body butters are my favorite.
