Supreme body mousse - body moisturizer by Cake Beauty - review by - Kira -

I'm Sweet Enough

I was a Cake convert after trying the lotion in the Snow Woman set. I decided to get the UnSweet so it wouldn't interfere with my perfumes and because I wasn't sure how I would feel about the main scents. Cake body mousse is the best performing and feeling lotion I have ever tried. UnSweet has a chemical smell that thankfully dissipates quickly. It's not pleasant, but the lotion is just amazing enough for me not to dock off points for it.
Amazingly soft skin, Long lasting, Quick results, Will not conflict with perfumes
Chemical smell, Not enough product, Not the best ingredients

extremely useful review


In case you missed it, Cake products are all the rave around Eden. For those who are scent sensitive or just not interested in the two scents offered in the body mousse, Cake has created UnSweet. UnSweet is unscented and un-colored. Sensitive users can now experience what all the talk is about. Since it doesn't smell like girly things, even guys can use this lotion if they want. Yeah, the packaging still screams "this is for girls!" but the soft skin may very well be worth it.

Cake's Body Mousse is an all over body moisturizer. It softens the skin and doesn't leave a gross feeling like many lotions can. It can be paired up with other Cake products to get truly amazing results in a short amount of time.

Cake advertises like crazy that they are paraben free, however the ingredient list isn't exactly perfect so you should check it for any possible sensitivities or allergies.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

UnSweet is labeled as a body mousse. Mousse reminds me of the dessert product which implies a whipped type of consistency. This isn't that. UnSweet is a lightweight lotion. It's thick enough that it doesn't drip if you put it in your hand and flip it over. It's also thick enough to do some heavy duty moisturizing. It's thin enough not to cause a layer of goop on your skin after you rub it in and make you feel like you have lotion on for hours. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling, but you will know you applied a lotion for about five or ten minutes after you put it on. After that, it absorbs completely and you are left with simply soft skin. Here you can see a photo of the product in my hand as well as one of it on a tilt to see that it doesn't move around:

It comes out of the bottle easily enough, especially considering it's a squeeze bottle and not a pump. I have a feeling this might not be the case as it gets to the bottom of the bottle, but only time will tell.

The consistency of this really makes it. Most lotions feel heavy on the skin and continue to feel heavy for long periods of time. Once this is absorbed, it's like it was never put on. I'm touch sensitive, so if my skin or clothing or anything like that doesn't feel right it drives me crazy. This is the first lotion I've been able to use on a daily basis without feeling gross.

Taste / Aroma

UnSweet is unscented. This really just means that you'll be able to smell the ingredients, which sadly are chemicals. It smells like a lotion, if that makes sense. So if you've ever used a hand cream before that wasn't scented like a fruit or something, you'll have the general idea of what this smells like. The first few times I used this, the smell was very off-putting. After a few uses, I've gotten over it. I'm pretty scent sensitive due to my migraines and the scent of this actually causes me more issues than the scents offered in the main line. It didn't actually give me a headache, but it wasn't a good smell.

The smell hits pretty hard at first, but dissipates very quickly. Unlike the other Cake lotions where the scent lasts all day, the UnSweet scent is gone as soon as you finish applying the lotion. So if you hate it, luckily you won't be smelling like lotion-y chemicals all day.

I didn't taste this. Sorry! I don't really recommend that you do either.


If there is one reason for you to try this product, it's the performance. My skin has never been softer than it has been since I switched over to Cake products. Not only does it not leave my skin feeling greasy or lotion-y, but it softened it in just one use more than any other lotion I've tried. Before using Cake, I would use Philosophy lotion every now and again. It's a bit thicker than I would like, but did work well for moisturizing. This blows Philosophy moisturizer out of the water. Even if I forget to use this lotion for a few days, my skin stays hydrated and soft. I've been running around since I started using this having my husband touch my skin saying "feel how soft I am!!"

The only bad thing is that the medium size bottle does not seem to last very long. It comes with 250ml (8.5 fl oz) of product. I slather on my lotion or something apparently because I killed off a quarter of the bottle in about a week. That means that a full bottle of this should last me around a month. At $22 a bottle, that's $22 a month in lotion. I don't mind paying for products that work, but $22 a month for soft skin does seem a bit on the pricey side. I've had to be very mindful to use this sparingly, which I don't like to do. I want to be able to use as much product as I want without worrying that I'll use an entire bottle of product in a short period of time. So either this should go further or they should put more product in so it appears to last longer.


Like all Cake products, the packaging is super cute and girly. The front says "Cake UnSweet" and has the adorable tagline "some days you're just sweet enough!" It has everything in French and English since the company is based in Canada. The back has a blurb about the product and what it does as well as the ingredient listing. It has the contact information for the company as well. Everything is done in pink and green, one of my favorite color combos.

As mentioned, you get 250ml or 8.5 fl oz of product with this bottle.

Special Features

The ingredients are:

Water/Eau (Aqua), Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric triglyceride, Cetyl alcohol, Stearic acid, Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) seed oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) oil, Macadamia integrifolia seed oil, Mangifera indica (Mango) alcohol, Isopropyl palmiate, Dimethicone, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl acetate), Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Tetrasodium EDTA

Glycerin - Colorless, odorless liquid. Improves smoothness.

Caprylic/Capric triglyceride - Liquid made from coconut oil. Slows the loss of water from the skin.

Cetyl alcohol - Organic alcohol. An opacifier.

Stearic acid - Saturated fatty acid. Lubrication.

Isopropyl palmiate - Palm oil emollient. Moisturizer and thickening agent.

Dimethicone - Silicone. Skin protectant.

Phenoxyethanol - Glycol ether. Preservative.

Caprylyl Glycol - Plant derived or synthetic. Skin conditioning agent.

Sorbic Acid - Natural organic acid. Preservative.

Carbomer - A series of polymers primarily made from acrylic acid. Used to keep oil and liquid from separating.

Triethanolamine - Clear, colorless, viscous liquids with ammonia-like odor. Used so that oil soluble and water soluble ingredients can be used together.

Tetrasodium EDTA - Chelating agent. Used to sequester and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in a product.

My issue with the ingredients is that for a company that has "PARABEN FREE!" all over their website and products, that's a pretty nasty ingredient list. I wouldn't have as much of an issue with it if they weren't trying to pretend it was great. I prefer natural products, but generally I'll use what works in areas other than my lady parts (as I'm super sensitive there). To advertise what would lead one to believe that it's a more natural product and then have a pretty icky list like that kinda doesn't sit so nice with me.

Personal comments

If you don't have an issue with the ingredients and can tolerate the chemical smell for a few moments, this is a must have. If you don't want to smell the chemicals, you can get the other body mousse scents here. It comes in It's A Slice (orange and vanilla) and Desserted Island (coconut and vanilla). My personal favorite is the Vanilla Snow Woman, but that's limited edition and only comes in a kit. If you can pick that up while it's still around, you should. You can find it here.


I decided to stock up on the UnSweet after loving the Snow Woman but not being able to get it in full size. I ordered the Travel Set to try the main line scents, but knew the unscented version would work best for daily use so it wouldn't conflict with my perfume. I also wasn't really sure how I would feel about orange/vanilla or coconut/vanilla.

I really wish the Snow Woman was part of the main line because I prefer that to the UnSweet. Since it's not, UnSweet is my daily lotion. I'm not a fan of the chemical smell, but it goes away so fast that it's really not a huge issue. Since this is hands down the BEST performing lotion I have ever used, I won't even dock points for the smell. If it had performed any less than stellar, I would have.

As mentioned in my other Cake reviews, my Philosophy stuff has gone under the skin and in the trash. This outperforms it on every level. I use this with Milk Made Shower Cream and my skin literally feels like a baby's butt. Despite the chemical smell, I really look forward to putting this on each day because of how great it feels on my skin and how soft I feel after.
