Velveteen hand creme - hand cream by Cake Beauty - review by RomanticGoth

I smell delicious!

Looking to indulge in something rich and creamy without the calories? Something that will make your mouth water and hands silky smooth? The Velveteen Hand Creme by Cake will leave your hands feeling oh so soft and the scent will leave you craving sweet delights. The only downside to this product is the price!
Smells delicious, makes hands soft, perfect size for travel, would make a nice gift.
Price, needs to come in more size options, those with sensitivities to dairy may want to skip this.

extremely useful review


The Velveteen Hand Creme by Cake in Desserted Island smells so good that you might be tempted to lick your fingers after applying (it's not recommended!). It's infused with mango and Shea butters to help moisturize dry hands without leaving them feeling greasy. The small 3.4 fl oz tube is the perfect size to toss in your purse or gift giving.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

When squeezed out of its tube, it is a light coffee with cream color. It is a thinner hand cream than I'm used to, the texture reminds me of Eucerin lotions. It feels very creamy and goes on smoothly, leaving your hands feeling soft and silky.

Taste / Aroma

Desserted Island by Cake smells.... Wow! It smells delicious. This hand creme smells exactly like a rich coconut cake, really creamy and sweet without being overpowering. The Tahitian vanilla fragrance is stronger than that of the coconut, so it doesn't leave you smelling like sunscreen.

Those sensitive to perfumes may want to pick up the unscented variety.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


All you need is a tiny amount to coat your hands nicely. After applying the velveteen Hand Creme the first time, my hands felt noticeably different. They felt amazingly silky! The hand creme was absorbed almost as fast as I rubbed it in and didn't leave them feeling greasy or slick like some lotions can. It works well on dry feet, too.

It leaves your hands feeling smooth and soft for hours unless you accidentally get them wet or wash them. They'll still be soft, but the scent is less noticeable and you may want to reapply.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Allergy concerns
    • Long lasting


The packaging is a simple beige and white tube with a flip top cap at the bottom. The cap is easy to flip open and dispense with one hand. It comes in a small 3.4 fl oz size that makes it the perfect choice for travel, tossing in your purse, or for gift giving.

Personal comments

I picked this up during one of Eden's amazing sales and fell in love. It leaves my dry hands feeling so wonderfully silky smooth. And that scent! My boyfriend and I both love it. I've received quite a few compliments on my "perfume" when wearing this out and about.

My only problem with this hand creme is I wish it came in more size options. I have thirsty skin that drinks up lotion and other moisturizers like no tomorrow. A little 3.4 fl oz tube won't last very long. All in all, I really enjoy how soft it makes my skin feel and will probably buy it again if there is another sale.
Follow-up commentary
I still really like the Velveteen Hand Creme from Cake. It smells so yummy and I get lots of compliments on it. I can't wait for it to go on sale again!

    Great review. I would say that is pricey for a hand creme. Of course I'm cheap, too!
