Milk made smoothing hand buffer - hand cream by Cake Beauty - review by MamaDivine

Lovin' My new Hands!

If you're a nail biter, cuticle chewer, dry or calloused hands or just want to pamper yourself with a spa style treatment-This is the product to try out! I highly recommend this to anyone! Can be used for feet, hands, elbows and knees.
Very effective! Smells wonderful, would make a great gift
Leaky container-messy process
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Milk Made Smoothing Hand Buffer is a simple sugar and essential oil mixture that is used to exfoliate the skin (sloughing off any loose or dead skin) while the essential oils are used to moisturize and protect the skin afterwards. The Milk Made Smoothing Hand Buffer by Cake is by far one of my most favorite products! This product is great for rough, calloused and dry hands (feet, elbows or the like). If you tend to have cracked skin, you may want to consult a dermatologist before using. I am not sure how helpful (or safe) this product is for severely chapped and cracked skin. This Hand Buffer is also great when used on elbows, knees, and heels of the foot!

Ingredients are: Sugar, Grape Seed (Vitis Vinifera) Oil, Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Oil, Avacado (Persea gratissima) oil, Sweet almond (Prunus Amygdalus dulcis) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Milk amino acids, Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl glycol (and) sorbic acid, parfum (Fragrance), red 17 (CI 26100), Violet 2 (CI60725)

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of the Hand Buffer has two parts. First you have the sugar granules. The sugar is not a very "chunky" sugar mixture, but rather somewhere between fine and chunky. The sugar is a rather nice medium.

Then you have the oils within the sugar mixture. The oils are very oily and will definitely stick to your hands (or other areas) immediately after rinsing this product off. Which is a good thing though. When you dry the freshly scrubbed area, you will notice a bit of the oil has been left over. Rub this into your skin for moisturizing!

Because of the sugar, obviously, being heavier than the oils, you will notice that the oils will float to the top. Before you using this product, you are encouraged to stir it up with the small, white, plastic spoon you are provided with. If you do not have your spoon (as mine broke before I could even use it!) you can always use anything else that is able to stir the mixture.

The mixture will feel gritty and very greasy while you are scrubbing.
    • Greasy
    • Oily
    • Textured

Taste / Aroma

The scent is Raspberry kiss/ Vanilla. I love it! It smells very much like vanilla, but with a hint of raspberry mixed in. I am not a huge vanilla fan, but the scent of this was quite pleasant.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


This product is going to last you quite a while! When using the product, you only need a very small amount of the sugar. When I did this, I got mostly sugar granules on my hand, rather than any oils. So, I dipped my spoon back in to grab a little oil. A VERY little is all you need. Then, I scrubbed my hands for about 30-60 seconds. Make sure that you rub this mixture into your cuticles too! This will help to slough off any of those nasty loose pieces of skin floating around, or if you chew your fingers-this is going to help a lot!

Pat your hands dry.

There will be a small amount of oil left on your hands. This is used to massage into the skin for moisturizing. After they fully dry (usually takes a few minutes) there will be a very noticeable difference in the feel and touch of your skin! I couldn't stop touching my cheeks and rubbing my hands along my arms. It felt great! My cuticles looked clean and healthy and there was more color and even tone to my hands. Overall, a great product and works wonders!

There is a set that you can purchase with this and a creamy hand lotion. However, I noticed that I did not need the hand lotion at all, after massaging the left over oils into my skin.

This would be great for feet, elbows and knees as well!

NOTE: This container that comes with the scrub leaked for me. Especially after I used it the first time. The oils in this mixture will stain! So make sure to use a paper towel or wash cloth to keep this on while in use. When you store it, make sure to wipe off lid area and set upright.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Feels natural
    • Long lasting


This product comes in a 4.9 fl.oz., plastic jar with a screw on lid.

When re-closing the lid, make sure to wipe off any excess sugar that may have dripped onto the "threads" of the top of the jar. If you don't do this, you're going to make a mess and the lid may not screw on properly.
    • Leaky container
    • Messy dispenser
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

I will be using this product at a spa party that I am planning for next weekend with my girls! I cannot wait to show them all these great spa products from EdenFantasys! I have been using this stuff for about a month now, and I will be so excited to finally give a follow up review after the spa party is over. I will let you all know what my friends thought about it too!
Follow-up commentary
Saying that "I still Like it" is quite the understatement! I LOVE this product! So much so, that I had all my friends and my mother try this product this past weekend at a spa party I hosted. It is AMAZING and I didn't get one bad report from the girls about it! My mother loves this stuff and plans to be ordering some shortly. Me, on the other hand, I plan to stock up when the next sale comes around for this item. I don't want to run out of it! I also use this for my heels and feet and it works wonderfully!
