Have your Cake and bring it in the shower too!... but don't eat it!

This duo set contains both a body wash and a luxurious hand cream. I really enjoyed the soft fluffy toasted coconut scented bubbles in my shower! The shower froth contains coconut oil and vitamin E and left my skin soft and scented. The hand cream makes my hands feels nice and silky and contains mango and shea butters. Overall, this is a great set and it comes in a really cute box that's perfect for gift giving. The shower froth bottle is slightly hard to squeeze but that's my only complain

Use

The Desserted Island Duo from Cake smells so yummy! You get a full sized body wash to take with you in the shower and a cute handcream to throw in your purse when you're on the go. The body wash is different from any other body wash I've ever used before because they call it a "bath and shower froth." It smells sweeter than any other body wash I've ever had. It smells sweet and fluffy like a coconut cake! It contains coconut oil to help soothe and hydrate your skin. The velveteen hand cream lives up to it's name and makes your hands velvety soft. This smooth indulgent hand cream contains mango and shea butters to keep your hands looking their best. Both items come in a super cute box with an island theme which makes this set a great gift idea! I'd recommend this to anyone that loves the scent of vanilla/coconut.

"Craving a sweet island escape? Indulge in creamy coconut and tahitian vanilla scented goodness with this perfectly-packaged gift set. These best selling delights are packed with deluxe ingredients that will nourish and rejuvenate your skin and send your body (and your senses) drifting straight to a luxurious and indulgent paradise. Hottie pool boy not included."

Please be aware that both of these items contain glycerin. Also, both of these products smell very sweet and are quite strong. If you're not a fan of super sweet bakery smells then please pass this one up. On the other hand, if you love sweet bakery treats then you'll definitely want to try this!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Bath & Shower Froth:
The shower froth is a creamy toasted coconut color with a pearly sheen. It's thin enough to pour easily out of the bottle but it's thick enough that it feels luxurious and velvety. It's more of a clear/pearly body wash rather than a moisturizing milky/lotiony looking body wash. When used in the shower with a bath pouf it lathers up really nicely and gives you lots of soft velvety bubbles. The creaminess of the shower froth and the velvety bubbles makes it wrap around your skin and stay there while you wash. It's definitely higher quality than other body washes I've tried before which makes me really happy!

Velveteen Hand Cream:
The hand cream is a lot thinner than I expected. I expected it to be thick like a body butter or a thick hand cream. The texture feels like typical body lotion. The color is also a toasted coconut color. It's a light pastel brownish color. It comes out of the tube very easily. When applied to the skin it feels velvety and soft. If you dispense a large amount in your hand and flip it over it will definitely drip or slide off. It didn't makes my hands feels greasy or sticky at all. It made my hands feel nice and soft.

Taste / Aroma

Bath & Shower Froth:
The shower froth smells sweet and delicious! It smells like a light fluffy cake with toasted coconut on top. Compared to the Supreme Body Mousse (which I ordered separately) the shower froth smells a little more "fake" in the sense that you can smell it and definitely tell it's a soap product. The Supreme Body Mousse smells milkier and fluffier if that makes sense. Don't get me wrong, the shower froth still smells really yummy! It doesn't smell bad but if you're extra sensitive to scents like this I can see how some people may not like it as much as I do. The scent is pretty strong at first but in the shower when it starts turning into bubbles the scent sort of fades. Or maybe I just get used to it? It's not too strong by the time you're finished and the scent doesn't perfume your skin much but if you leave the bathroom and someone else walks in they will definitely smell it. My boyfriend went in the bathroom after my shower and told me it smelled wonderful in there!

Velveteen Hand Cream:
The hand cream smells the best of the two in my opinion but you can tell that the scent matches. It smells like a toasted coconut cake with a hint of the beach. It's almost like a slight sunscreen scent lingering afterwards that smells really clean and fresh. It reminds me of yummy baked goodness but also reminds me of a warm sandy beach on a tropical island. Compared to the Supreme Body Mousse it smells very similar but the body mousse smells more like fluffy cake than coconut. All of the products smell so yummy!

Performance

Bath & Shower Froth:
In the shower I used about a large amount on my bath pouf and it lathered up quickly. The bubbles were velvety and soft and smelled delicious! It was thick enough to stay on my skin until I was ready to rinse off. It could have been more moisturizing but for what it is I think it worked great. I also used a small amount in my foot tub when soaking my feet. It made lots of nice bubbles and made my feet feel slightly moisturized. This is probably because it contains coconut oil. You can definitely feel that it's higher quality compared to less expensive brands. It washed off easily and left no residue on my skin. You know when you use soap and it can leave you feeling waxy and dry? This isn't like that at all! It leaves you soft and smelling sweet.

Velveteen Hand Cream:
When my hands are feeling slightly dry I use about a dime sized amount of hand cream and massage it in. I concentrate on my cuticles which are usually very dry from all the nail polish remover and nail polish I use all the time. The hand cream feels silky, soft, and makes your hands feel brand new! It's not as thick as I expected but it's definitely good stuff. It doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy or sticky at all. I can use this anywhere and even when I'm on the go. It lasts for a while but not too long. You'll have to reapply it throughout the day.

I love the scent! That's my favorite part about this duo set. I also love that they give you plenty of product. I think the shower froth could have been milkier and more moisturizing but it's still one of my top favorite body washes ever. I also like that this set comes in a really cute box! I plan on purchasing another set as a gift.

Packaging

This set comes in a really cute island themed box! The box is made out of a really thin cardboard that's white on the inside. When it arrived with the rest of my order it wasn't wrapped in any kind of plastic bag. There was also a very tiny little rip on the side of the box but it's not vey noticeable. The inside of the box has a divider so there's a place for the hand cream and a place for the shower froth. The box has the description and ingredients list on the back. On the front it says, "sweet escape" and there's a picture of the two items you get, an 17.4 oz. shower froth and a 3.4 oz. hand cream. The box is mostly sky blue and has a beachy scene around the bottom including a cute pink/white striped umbrella with a forgotten flip-flop sticking out of the sand. The box is really cute but it's very thin and can get damaged easily.

There's nothing sexual about this product in any way so you can feel safe about giving it to friends and family. It's totally discreet and would make a great gift!

The shower froth comes in a large plastic bottle with a click top cap with the word "press" on the indentation. It really takes a lot of force to squeeze it out of the bottle especially when you start running low. I would have prefered a pump bottle because this type of bottle is slightly annoying. It can also get very slippery and the last thing I want to do is drop this big heavy bottle on my poor toes! You get a LOT of product and it should last you a long time.

The hand cream comes in a smooth plastic tube that's crimped on the end. The cap is a velvety feeling plastic. The cap doesn't come off so you can open and close it with one hand. The container is slightly creamy colored. The hand cream container is great but the shower froth bottle could have been better.

I would definitely recommend traveling with the hand cream! I have it in my purse so it's always with me. I'm not sure if I would recommend traveling with the shower froth but I don't see why not. Everything seems stable enough but I'd definitely put it inside of a plastic bag just in case.

Cake is a brand from Canada.

Personal comments

I enjoyed this set so much that when it runs out I'll definitely be repurchasing it! I plan on giving a set as a gift soon. I'm really happy with the Cake brand so far and wouldn't hesitate to purchase more products from them in the future. I recommend purchasing the Supreme Body Mousse that also comes in the Desserted Island scent so you'll have a matching set!
Follow-up commentary
I've used up most of the shower froth by now and I really enjoyed it. I was surprised by how long it lasted. I prefer a pump bottle but the shower froth comes out of the bottle easily so it's not such a big deal. The hand cream is fabulous and I use it often. I only need a tiny amount for my hands and it makes them feel like silk. This is a wonderful set and it smells so pretty and delicious. I would definitely purchase this set again!
