Satin sugar hair and body powder for darker hues by Cake Beauty - review by SweetSouthernGirl

A quick fix when you're low on time.

I was pleased with this product. It worked well for a quick fix or a refresh after work before going out in the evenings. The best quality is the tinted color, it worked great with my dark hair.
Tinted for dark hair, fine and silky texture.

I was pleasantly surprised with this dry shampoo from cake! I've always been a bit skeptical of dry shampoos, in the past I've had the unfortunate greying effect after use and often times my hair ends up feeling even more grungy when I'm through. Obviously in college I fell into the habit of using baby powder when I overslept for class, and of course there were all kinds of negative things that went along with that. The white hand print on my jeans being one of them.

The first thing I noticed was that the powder is darker so it doesn't stand out in my dark brown hair. This is great! It's also not very thick so it is easy to dust off or wipe on a towel without getting it everywhere.

The powder didn't cake in my hair, it had a silky feel and it blended right in. It took the greasy shine and still brushed and styled like my hair would had I just washed it.

I didn't try the dry shampoo in conjunction with any other hair product aside from hair spray, so I can't say how it would do with gels or mousse, but that just sounds like a recipe for disaster so I wouldn't suggest it.

I also noticed that while popularly excepted as dry shampoo the packaging also referred to this as an overall body refreshing powder. I tried using it that way and I was pleased. While nothing will give you a fresh from the shower feeling like an actual shower, I tried it after a workout to run to the store and I was pleased with the results.

The powder is lightly scented so it doesn't have the powdery smell you might notice in your grandmother's bathroom. It's not overpowering though. I would equate it to using a scented shampoo, just enough to smell clean.

While it seems a little pricey for dry shampoo, it is lasting a very long time. My sister uses aerosol cans of dry shampoo and I know that this little canister would outlast at least two of those, probably more. The tinted powder is also a real plus.

They only thing I would say is that if you have super fine or flat hair this powder won't do much for you in the way of adding body.

Overall I've been very pleased and I imagine I will continue to use this product on a semi-regular basis.
I drastically overslept one morning and had no time for a shower. I used this product not only as dry shampoo but also as a body powder. I used it specifically under my breasts and along my collarbone. I also dusted a little across my thighs and belly. As I said above nothing can truly take the place of a good shower but I felt pretty good. It didn't cake or feel grimy at all.
