extremely useful review


Cake's Vanilla Snow Woman Glistening Trio contains 3 amazing limited edition Cake products. A lip gloss, a body lotion and a body wash. Everything has the same vanilla sugar cookie scent. You can't buy these separately, the only way to enjoy them is by trying them all out with this limited edition set. Another great kit from Cake with more options and different scents is Cake's Plane Friendly Travel Kit.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

I'll start with the lip gloss: It's thicker and stickier than other lip glosses I use. It's not sheer, it's a nice, light peachy pink color in the tube and adds a hint of color to your lips. The sticky feeling seemed to be less noticeable after 10 minutes but to be more specific it went from extremely sticky, to sticky so I did still feel it. To get decent coverage I swiped my lips with this gloss 4 times and I'm assuming it didn't feel as sticky after 10 minutes because of being in contact with body heat, it may have thinned out slightly. It didn't drip or run off of my lips though which was nice.

The lotion was thick enough that it didn't just run out of the bottle like water but I would recommend storing it upright and if you're planning on traveling with it, put it in a sealed bag just in case the flip cap dispenser gets bumped. It's a light peachy pink but it isn't tinted once you put it on, it goes on sheer. It's smooth and doesn't feel oily, greasy or sticky.

The shower gel is the same peachy pink color and it's thin but not runny and watery. Again I would recommend that you store this upright because even with the cap on tight, I wouldn't want this one to leak and make a mess, plus it's limited edition!

Taste / Aroma

None of these are edible, they aren't flavored and I wouldn't recommend tasting them. I don't think it'd harm you to lick some of the gloss off of your lips so I gave it a try. Absolutely no flavor and it just left a waxy feeling in my mouth.

The lotion, the shower gel and the lip gloss all smell the same and they smell amazing. They smell just like rich vanilla frosting on freshly baked sugar cookies. I know that's a specific description but I feel like that describes it better than just "vanilla". This isn't like many vanilla scented products I've smelled before. The scent is delicious, initially it's stronger and by that I mean that it's noticeable but not overpowering and it gets lighter the longer you wear it. I've worn it around people who are sensitive to strong scents and it didn't bother them at all, they loved it. I can't rave enough about this scent, if this were available in a bigger bottle I would buy it. Not just your basic vanilla here, a very warm and cozy scent: freshly baked sugar cookies with vanilla frosting.

    • Strong smell


As I mentioned about the lip gloss before, it was really sticky when I first applied a thin coat of it. I did make the mistake of wearing it once when my lips were slightly chapped and regretted it right after I finished applying it. I've made this same mistake with scented glosses in the past, it made my lips burn lightly and felt itchy so I wiped it off immediately. This wasn't any fault of the gloss though, after a few days of chap stick, I tried this gloss again and I was fine. This lip gloss didn't seem to dry out my lips either, when it needed to be reapplied after 30 minutes of wearing it had just really thinned out with less visible shine.

The shower gel lathered up nicely when used as a shower gel and made lots of bubbles when used as a bubble bath. I only used 2 caps full of the shower gel to get a bathtub full of bubbles. The light scent of vanilla frosted sugar cookies filled the air and smelled amazing. When used as a shower gel, not much was needed either but I'm not sure of the exact amount because I just squeezed the bottle and didn't measure it out but I would say 2 caps or less was used. When I used the shower gel as a shower gel instead of bubble bath, it left a light vanilla scent on my skin, not as noticeable as when I used the lotion, this time it was much lighter.

The lotion made my skin silky smooth and smelling amazing of course. It went on smooth and it stayed that way, absorbing quickly and leaving my skin really soft. I know that some lotions can feel sticky or gummy or make you feel like it leaves a residue...not this one! I can honestly say that I have never had that problem with any of Cake's lotions. It absorbed nicely, my skin gets pretty dry and it just drank this lotion in. It left my skin smooth, soft and smelling delicious!

Cake's vanilla snow woman glistening trio comes in a cute little box that shows all the products on the front with the ingredients listed on the back as well as being printed on each product. The box is cute enough that you could give this as a gift and leave everything in the box instead of opening it and wrapping everything separately. The lip gloss is packaged in a 0.4 oz hard plastic tube with Cake's logo on the side. The cap twists off and the lip gloss wand has a soft sponge tip applicator. Both the lotion and the body wash are in 4 oz, clear plastic bottles with a flip top cap to dispense the product which can be done by squeezing the bottles. Again, Cake's logo is on the bottles along with "Snow Woman". The packaging is cute and simple. These sizes would be convenient to travel with.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Recyclable
    • Travel friendly

Personal comments

I say this every time I get a Cake product but...I'm in love! I can't stop using this set although I guess I better slow down because it is limited edition. The smell is so delicious I have trouble thinking that anyone could dislike it, I think this is one everyone will love. The warm scent of vanilla frosted sugar cookies straight out of the oven had my mouth watering from the second that I opened this set up. I can honestly say that I will never tire of this or Cake's fabulous products!
Follow-up commentary
I am powerless over my Cake addiction and I'm okay with that! My only wish would be that they made this scent year round and in larger bottles. I've had to slow down on my use of this one because I want it to last! Good thing I have enough Cake products to go around!
