Review: Tom Ford Radiant Moisture Souffle





Review: Tom Ford Radiant Moisture Souffle

I have always been curious about the Tom Ford skincare line but nothing has really peaked my interest until now! If you need to know anything about my beauty preferences, know this, I love anything described as radiant or glowy!! As soon as I saw this beauty in a jar...I was sold! Well... not entirely, I was curious but after seeing it in person, I knew I MUST have it! 

The Tom Ford Radiant Moisture Souffle contains 50 mL/1.7 fl. oz.for $98.00 USD sold at Tom Ford, Neiman Marcus, and other retailers. Yes, you saw those numbers! Its EXPENSIVE but its also Tom Ford, the epitome of luxury beauty. Yes, I am a little bias, I adore the Tom Ford Beauty line but I also consider myself an honest person. 

Here is the description on the Neiman Marcus page

Replenish, hydrate and illuminate skin with a rich, luxurious whipped cream that instantly re-energizes skin's appearance après-soleil. Featuring Tom Ford's Exclusive Infusing Complex, this rich soufflé formula returns radiance and vitality to fatigued skin. Small golden pearls enhance a sexy, natural glow while skin feels flooded with moisture, plump and vibrant with youthful energy.
The Tom Ford Infusing Complex infuses skin with a potent combination of specially selected nutrients that help skin stimulate its natural repair mechanisms. By helping skin cells replenish their natural energy, it fundamentally rejuvenates the complexion, so it looks and feels brighter, fresher and less tired. High-performing antioxidants help protect the skin, creating a vital-looking face. The skin is left looking renewed, resilient and smoother.



There seems to be confusion about whether this product is for the face omr the body. Based on the description and the product itself, this product is definitely for the face. As much as I would LOVE to slather this over my body, from head to toe, I couldn't afford that. "Tom Ford Exclusive Infusing Complex" is something the line uses in their skincare line, like in their serum. 

For those of you who have asked, here is the ingredients list, listed as shown on the box (the box is very reflective and it is hard to capture the white text in a photo):

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau - Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride - Petrolatum - Hexyldecyl Stearate - Butylene Glycol - Dimethicone - Glycereth-26 - PEG-100 Stearate - Cetearyl Alcohol - Glyceryl Stearate - Propanediol - Sapindusmukurossi Fruit Extract - Morinda Citrifolia Fruit Extract - Algae Extract - Caffeine - Linoleic Acid - Isohexadecane - Myristyl Myristate - Cetearyl Glucoside - Caprylyl Glycol - Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer - Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride - Tromethamine - Tocopheryl Acetate - 
Polysorbate 80 - Citric Acid - Trehalose - Glycerin - Sorbitol - Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum - Acrylamide/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltauratecopolymer - Potassium Sorbate - Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate - Sodium Hyaluronate - Silica - Myristyl Alcohol - Aluminum Hydroxide - Hexylene Glycol - Stearic Acid - Disodium EDTA - BHT - Phenoxyethanol - Mica - Iron Oxides (Cl 77491, Cl77492, Cl 77499) - Titanium Dioxide (Cl 77891)

This product is everything I was hoping Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream would be! The Magic Cream fragrance was so strong I honestly thought I has put body cream on my face! It also felt heavy and it did not give me the "glow" I was expecting. It didn't look healthy, it looked closer to greasy. Additionally, the Magic Cream retails for $100.00 USD, more than the Tom Ford and not even close to the quality. I was expecting an overpriced MAC Strobe Cream but Tom Ford souffle exceeded all my expectations!



The Tom Ford Radiant Souffle had a very very light fresh scent, its almost 
undetectable. Sensitive skin peeps rejoice! My skin is not sensitive, however, I know many people with fragrance sensitivity, and I feel very strongly this will not affect those who have a sensitivity to fragrance. Although the product is a cream, it is not heavy and is easily absorbed into the skin. It does provided a lot of hydration and I do find that the cream plumps my skin! I do not have many "lines" on my face, however, I feel my face being hydrated and plumped! It is also incredibly smoothing. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels. It is what I expect from a $98.00 face cream! 

I find my makeup applies very well and and sits beautifully on my face. It seems to make my makeup look flawless and poreless. I find my makeup applies very evenly and just looks seamless! It is a great skincare and primer combination! It may be too heavy for a combination or oily skin type. I am currently on the normal/dry side but as summer approaches, I will oil start to creep up and cause a meltdown. This may be to heavy for the summertime or for those with oily skin. 

This cream feel so luxurious and makes your skin look so healthy. The "glowing" part of this product comes from very very fine mica shimmers in the product combined with the hydrating glossy cream texture. If you're worried about the shimmers being visible on the skin, it's not! You can get up very close and you won't be able to detect the fine mica. If you love the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer, you will LOVE this! With the skincare properties in this product and the beautiful glow, you may want to invest in this product over the primer. 

My one very very small disappointment in this product is that it doesn't have any SPF/sun protection. This isn't absolutely necessary for me, however, this is a "summer" product and I feel a summer skincare product should have SPF in it. On the other hand, I also love the fact that it doesn't have SPF because you don't have to worry about flashback in photos! Obviously in the summer you should probably wear a higher SPF than what is normally put into a moisturizer, so having SPF in this moisturizer is a bit pointless. I like having SPF in my daily moisturizers because it's one less product to layer and buy. During the week, I am mostly inside and I don't worry about having a high sun protection in my skincare routine. Anyways, this is a very minor downside for me. I love this product so much, I'm willing to change my entire daily skincare routine in order to incorporate it.

Overall, all I have to say is... MR. FORD, PLEASE MAKE THIS PART OF YOUR PERMANENT LINE!!!

This product is worth every pricey penny spent on it! It is everything I wanted and expected in a luxury radiance cream. My skin feel amazing when I use it and even my makeup looks better! If this is a permanent item, it will be a permanent addition to my skincare and makeup routine. I really do hope this will become a permanent item because it is everything I have been looking for in my skincare routine. If you're about that glow life, then you NEED this!

Let me know what your favorite "glow products" are! I'm always looking for something glowy to buy! Let me know what you think about this product or collection,
