Milk made smoothing white sugar scrub by Cake Beauty - review by Hot 'N Sexy TexasMama

Addicted to Sugar...scrubs that is!

Cake Milk Made Body Smoothing White Sugar Scrub is a high quality, lightly scented scrub that will work for many people. The scent won't interfere with most other perfumes you want to wear and you can layer the scent with other products in this line.

However, I prefer a thicker scrub that has a stronger and fruity scent. I'll use this jar up but pass on the chance to buy any more.

extremely useful review


I love sugar scrubs. I've used them for years because they are so good at exfoliating your skin and softening it too. I used to only be able to find them with honey or almond scents with brown sugar, but I am finding lighter scents now that are made with white sugar and I am thrilled.

Cake's Milk Made Smoothing White Sugar Scrub is one of the thickest scrubs that I've experienced. Actually, the Not Soap Radio scrubs are thicker because they feel more like a glue texture but with this product, it is almost like dipping your hand directly into the sugar bowl to grab out sugar. You can literally see the grains of sugar in the scrub and make them out.

This scrub is designed to be used externally on your body but not on your face and not in the genital region. I recommend this because I'm not sure if this would encourage yeast infections if used with genitals and it is fairly heavy to use on your face and might cause breakouts.

This product is free from parabens, phthalates, petro-chemicals, triclosan, sulfates, synthetic dyes, & gmo.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Because Eden Fantasys started carrying this at the same time as Not Soap Radio sugar scrub, I would like to compare the two for you so that you can see the difference between them. I like both products and they both have their strengths and weaknesses.

When you open the jar of Cake sugar scrub, you have to reach in and get some scrub with your fingers. It is the same way with Not Soap Radio too. However, with the Cake brand, you can see the sugar crystals and it looks like there is some sort of oil in there with them also. When I went to grab some and put it on my hand, a large portion stayed on my hand but part of the clump fell off onto the floor. When I open the other brand, the consistency is more like dry glue or dried out playdough. When I put the same amount on my hand, it stayed put.

Here are pictures of the two products to show the consistency of them.

As you can see, both are fairly "solid" and will not run off like a creme or body lotion would.

The Cake scrub feels moist on your hand while the other product feels drier.

Both products must be rinsed off with water.

Taste / Aroma

The Cake product has a very mild scent to it. Other have described it as a raspberry scent but I don't notice that very much. I am not a fan of raspberries so perhaps that is why I don't notice it. It is a light scent that is milky and has some berry in it but almost reminds me of milk that has a touch of sugar in it, as if you've poured it over cereal and added sugar and eaten all the cereal. I think I smell some vanilla in there too.

You could probably use this with almost any perfumes and not have it interfere with their fragrance. It can be layered with other Milk Made products by Cake also if you wish to wear this scent all day long.

As a short note, the Not Soap Radio scrub has a much stronger scent to it and would not mesh as well with all perfumes like the Cake product will.

    • Smells good


This product did a great job of exfoliating and moisturizing my skin. I was very pleased and I noticed that on my hands, the lines on the back of my hands did not show because the back of my hand was so smooth.

It washed off very easily with water and I had no problems with it at all.

A brief comparison again - with the Not Soap Radio scrub I had to rub it a bit more with water to get it to wash off because it was thicker. However, it did the same quality of exfoliating and moisturizing on my skin.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


This product is packaged in a clear 20 ounce plastic jar. The following is written in both English and French on the back label:

Nourish and exfoliate at the same time. Slough away dryness and replenish your skin with this sweet, vitamin enriched blend of whole milk, white sugar, cocoa and shea butters & coconut oil. Your skin will be deeply hydrated, velvety smooth and ravishingly radiant (smooth skin delivery...Milk Man not required). Au lait!

For the VERY best results (and super dreamy skin), start with milk made body frothing bath & shower cream and follow with milk made body hydrating moisture milk).

Here are some photos of the jar:

Personal comments

As I stated in the beginning, I've been using sugar scrubs for years and a shower without a sugar scrub just feels so incomplete.

One of the things I've always loved about my sugar scrubs is that they smell so good and sometimes they "wake me up" between the feeling of the exfoliation and the smell of the scented scrub. I love a luxurious bath product that scents up the room (or at least our small enclosed shower) when I'm using it.

I was disappointed in this product because it didn't give me that feeling. The scrub did a good job at exfoliating and I did feel like I had soft skin afterwards. But there was no scent to linger and make me feel awake. I suppose that I could have layered on more of the Milk Made products but the scent just isn't that appealing to me.

In addition, while the scrub did sort of stick to me when I'd put it on me, it didn't stick like other thicker scrubs I've used. Some of it fell off and went down the drain and I felt like I'd wasted it.
