Hands Need Sweet Loving Too!

Your hands will love being pampered with this sweet treat, just don't let them feed it to your face! Cake's luxury hand cream is packed with rich nutrients and a sweet smelling aroma to leave the hands feeling soft and comforted. The price may seem high, but a little bit of this will go a long way.

Use

Nourish moisture-thirsty, parched, dry hands, elbows and other rough patches with Cake's Milk Made Velveteen Hand Creme. It also makes a great addition to a gift basket. Use frequently for maximum results or, for a more intense therapy session, put on a pair of moisture-retaining therapy gloves immediately after applying the product. For external use only. Do not use on the face.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This milky white, lightweight but rich hand creme isn't runny or too thick either. Initially, it feels a bit greasy until it's fully absorbed in to the hands, at which point it leaves them feeling velvety soft, not slippery. Only a small pea sized amount is normally needed to moisturize both hands. It does leave a slight sheen on the hands until washed off.

Cake Beauty prides itself on using 90-95% high quality, natural ingredients in all of its products. This creme is free of parabens and contains nourishing mango and shea butters, in addition to marshmallow plant extract, which has medicinal properties, anti-oxidants to combat aging, and it can also help to lighten the skin.

Taste / Aroma

A hint of raspberry and vanilla sweeten this hand creme, but don't make the aroma so overpowering that it's irritating to the wearer, unless an aversion to scented products is an issue. It's subtle but noticeable and is sure to please anyone who enjoys bakery scents. An unscented version is available directly from the manufacturer's website.

Performance

This creme performed well, without leaving the hands too slippery; however, it was necessary to re-apply after hand washing. For those who are looking for heavy duty moisturization, this may not be enough, but it does make a good everyday choice and the quality is better than the inexpensive drug-store brands.

Packaging

The product is packaged in a flip-top, 3.4 fl. oz. tube that is convenient for travel and can stand-alone on a flat surface. Just a slight squeeze will dispense the product, without too much coming out, so long as it's not squeezed too hard. When you are close to empty, it can be cut open to get out the last drop.

Personal comments

I wasn't quite sure I'd like this hand creme; I've tried so many that I know exactly what I'm looking for. At first I wasn't able to pinpoint the scent (I tried to guess it myself without looking online), but now that I know what it is, the scent is obvious. I generally prefer unscented hand creams that are super rich, but I've only found one that performs up to my standards (true blue spa from Bath & Body Works); however, the price of the that is comparable to this one, so I won't find myself refusing a tube of this if someone gives me one. Honestly, it's worth buying a good hand cream if you ask me, and Cake's Milk Made is pretty darn good!
Follow-up commentary
I found this to be a very nice hand cream; however, my teenager liked it even more and stole it from me! It appears that she is enjoying it as well, so if you like this one, HIDE IT!

    Thanks for the review! I got a free trial of the True Blue from BBW and ooh! If this is anything like that I'll have to pick some up!

    Great review! I am so glad to hear the ingredients aren't all yucky in these! I was hoping they'd turn out great, especially for that price. The rasberry vanilla sounds amazing! That's one of my fav lotion scents. Thanks for the super helpful review. I'm wishlisting this asap!

    This is on my next to order list. That True Blue stuff works amazing but I never liked the way it felt on my hands. If I recall it has paraffin in it. Leaves a slick feeling I couldn't deal with.

    Have you tried the Philosophy Hands of Hope or the Aveda hand cream I forget the name of right now? Those are my two favorites and I'm wondering how this compares to those (if you happen to know).
