Broken Dream-sicle

This is body wash that feels nice on your skin and leaves your skin feeling nice as well. However, "orange and vanilla" would be better described as "the tartest orange ever." It's not sweet or like a dream-sicle at all, which is what I had hoped. I can't rate it down too much. I like the performance and I'm sure I'll like the other scent better, while some folks are sure to like the orange.

extremely useful review
Both of these scents sounded great to me, so I opted for It's a Slice on recommendation of a friend. I don't normally go for orange, but I figured that the vanilla would temper the citrus smell and that it would be something like the classic dreamsicle. Unfortunately, it's not.

My bottle of body wash is incredibly tart. It's like someone tried -- but failed -- to imitate orange. It overpowers any hint of vanilla. I can't smell any in the bottle itself and only get a tiny whiff once in a while. There's this sort of syrup-y over-saturation to the orange. Nothing about this scent is sweet. It's a shame because I am sure that I will love the coconut vanilla variant. I intend to purchase that one ASAP.

Otherwise, this is a good body wash. The shimmery peach gel looks good in the bottle, which is HUGE. The push-top style dispenses easily and without mess, but a pump or a slightly narrower bottle might be a little easier to grasp. For the same reason, it's not very travel-friendly. The bottle is feminine and, because this company isn't a sex toy company, there's nothing on it that you wouldn't be able to show anyone who enters your home. In fact, you might want to show off your cute product.

A little goes a long way. It lathers very well and feels silky smooth on the skin. Immediately after I wash it off, my skin feels soft and smooth -- no doubt due to the vitamin E and coconut oil. I expected no less, considering my great experience with the Milk Made body wash. The supreme lather makes this good for a bubble bath, and you might try to use it as a shaving gel but I have a separate product for that.

The smell doesn't stay on your skin and doesn't really infuse the whole shower, which would be a con if I loved the scent. That's one thing that Dona's products have done extremely well, but Cake doesn't seem to be able to keep up with. Cake does make body lotion in these same scents to pair with your shower products, however.

My skin is not terribly sensitive. This does contain glycerin but no parabens or tricoslan make an appearance. If your skin does well with drug store body washes, you'll be fine with this. If you're extra sensitive, you'll probably want to stay away, especially when you consider a contentious ingredient in this list: parfum.
Follow-up commentary
I really wish I had first ordered the Desserted Island scent, because this review would have been 5 stars, easily. The vanilla and coconut scent is exactly the sweetness I was looking for, and it seems to stay on the skin a bit more and is strong enough that my bathroom smells sweeter during my shower, too. Like the It's a Slice scent, it lathers well and a little goes a long way. My skin feels quite soft -- even more so with the addition of Cake's brown sugar scrub -- and this could double as a bubble bath, too. With the scent I like, I feel less anxious, more feminine and enjoy my showers just a little bit more.

    Thanks for the review. I got the Desserted Island one and love it and wanted to try this next but I'm not sure now.

    Just a question about your Follow-up though. Yours seems to be about the Desserted Island rather than the Orange you reviewed, is that right?
