I've found Treasure Island and I didn't need a map!

If you're looking for something a little different than you'd buy at the store then this could be the set for you. The scent is heavenly and lasts for hours. But if you're buying this as a gift for someone then you might want to put it in different packaging.

extremely useful review
Buying scented products that you've never tried before is a hit or miss affair, especially when you're buying online. Reviews are always helpful but what works for one won't always work for another (see my Dona Mangosteen Bath Salts review for proof of that).

Since I didn't have much luck with the Dona line, I decided to go with something completely different and began looking into the Cake line of products. I pored over all of the reviews and still had a hard time choosing between the Desserted Island set and the 'It's A Slice' one, which is orange-based. The Desserted Island one won - this time - and right now I'm glad it did.

The set arrived in a cardboard box with pictures of the two included products on it, namely a 3.4 fl oz tube of Velveteen Hand Creme and a 17.4 fl oz bottle of Bath/Shower Froth. Each of these items are also sold separately here on Eden Fantasys at $17.99 and $19.99 respectively, so buying this combined set is going to save you some $8.00 at the regular price. I'd say it's definitely worth it. The hand creme itself would work well for travel since it fits into an overnight bag far more easily than the bottle would, but even if you were packing these for a multi-day trip there's nothing to worry about since there's nothing on the packaging that would suggest these came from an adult store/site. My only gripe with the packaging would be the box that the two products come in. It's functional and cute but a little 'drugstore' looking to make a really nice gift. I suppose you could solve that easily by repacking the tube and bottle in a nice box with a little tissue paper if it was intended for someone special though.



Although the bath froth had a seal over the top of the bottle (the hand creme wasn't sealed other than having the cap closed on it), I could still tell what was to come when I held the bottle up to my nose. It smelled very nice and definitely cake-like. Then I opened the seal on the top of the bottle and it hit me. The scent was everything I'd expected from the reviews - the prominent scent here is Vanilla, but there's also a mixture of Coconut, buttercream sponge cake, just a tiny hint of almond and a healthy mix of heaven in there too. Since I wasn't quite ready for bathtime I tried the hand lotion first and that's got a very slightly different but still complementary scent, with Coconut being the strongest part of the scent for me.

According to the lotion's tube, it's infused with Mango and Shea Butter and believe me it shows. As of the time of writing this review I've been using it for about 4 days and my hands really are softer without feeling greasy. Interestingly enough, the back of the tube says that the hand creme is 'Vitamin packed' and 'blended with shea butter, whole milk and marshmallow extract'. However, I can't find much in the ingredients to back up the claim of being vitamin packed other than a mention of Vitamin E in the Body Froth. The ingredients are listed as follows:

Velveteen Hand Creme:
Water/Eau (Aqua), Glycerin, Cetyl alcohol, Glyceryl stearate, Cetearyl alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Dimethicone, Stearic acid, Althaea officinalis (marchmallow) extract, Milk Lipid, Mangifera indica (Mango) seed butter, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl glycol, Sorbic acid, Carbomer, Sodium hydroxide, Tetrasodium EDTA

Body Froth:
Water (Aqua), Sodium laureth sulfate, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Glycerin, PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, Laureth-7, Cocamide MEA, Glycol distearate, Parfum (Fragrance), Vitamin E (Tocopheryl acetate), Cocos nucifera (Coconut Oil), Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Benzophenone-4, Citric Acid
Experience
After spending the best part of the next couple of hours endlessly sniffing my hands, I decided it was time to try the Bath Froth. I'd been wondering why it was called that rather than either 'soap' or 'bubble bath' but it soon became clear. I added some to running bath water and it didn't really bubble up as easily or as much as my regular bubble bath. I was able to stir it up a little with my hand and the Froth dissipated well. It was easy to pour from the bottle, and considering the appropriate brand name, poured a little like thin cake batter. The smell didn't overwhelm my bathroom but it didn't totally disappear. If anything it was a little more subtle, but that's not surprising given that it had been watered down. It felt very good to bathe in and the bubbles that it made lasted pretty well. I also used the froth as a body wash and it worked just as well for that too. It's very smooth (so no 'scrubbing bits' in it) and lathers & cleans well when applied directly as a body wash.

Oh and ladies be warned - your man might just borrow this from you too. Mine did, but I'm not complaining :)
Follow-up commentary
The only 'problem' we found with this set was that it takes quite a lot of the bath froth/gel (let's just call it 'liquid') to really get the bubbles going. Considering the price of this, you really have to be miserly when it comes to using it. The crème on the other hand lasts a long time and is still going strong. It's been a staggering 7 months since we bought this and we are just about running out now. Thankfully EF have just restocked it. Now we just have to stock up in case this runs out again!
