Milky Moisture

Milk Made smells like a sweet vanilla and raspberry pastry. Moisture Milk is Milk Made's spray lotion in the line. It applies easily, though it can be messy if you aren't careful. Your skin will feel soft after you apply it, but it doesn't compare to the hydration of a thicker lotion. Texture sensitive users will be happy to know that it leaves behind no residue. It's a good buy if you love the Milk Made scent. If you seek deep hydration, Body Mousse is a better bet.
Smells good, Easy to use, Works better than other spray lotions, No residue
Not as moisturizing as regular lotions, Not the best ingredients, Can be messy if hastily applied
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Cake's Milk Made is centered around nourishing and hydrating skin while leaving behind a great scent. The Hydrating Moisture Milk is the final step to the bath routine which includes a shower cream and body scrub.

Moisture Milk is a light spray on lotion. You can apply it right after a shower or anytime of day for added hydration. It's always best to apply a lotion or moisturizer right after a shower or bath when soaps may have dried the skin out. Lotions can also help ease discomfort from everyday dryness.

Cake packages and markets its products to females. Males can use this product granted that they don't mind the girly packaging and scent. I'd imagine not too many guys will be jumping on the Milk Made bandwagon due to the very feminine smell.

You should be sure to check the ingredient listing for any possible sensitivities or allergies.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Moisture Milk is a good name for this lotion as "milk" is pretty much the consistency of it. The lotion is watery and runny, like milk. If you let it sit, it starts to separate up at the top like milk that has been sitting in the fridge for too long. Considering the milky coloring, this ends up looking a little on the gross side. When sprayed on the body, the milk comes out like a thick mist of water. If you spray a few sprays into a small area (like your hand), you can see that it is very thin. It will not stay in place if you put a large amount of it in the hand. When sprayed in a mist it does not run since there is such a small amount of product being distributed onto the surface.

When rubbed in, the milk feels like rubbing in a thick water. It leaves behind no residue. There is no greasy or sticky feeling to it. The skin that it touches does not feel as if anything has been applied to it within seconds of the product drying. This makes it an ideal moisturizer for those who are sensitive to the feel of lotions.

The milk comes out of the spray bottle easily. It does not spray upside down, which can present a problem in some instances. You will need to keep the bottle upright. Since not every area of the body can easily be reached from an upright position with the bottle, some creative bending may need to be employed. It will spray from a side angle.

Taste / Aroma

Cake describes the Milk Made scent as vanilla and raspberry. I personally think it smells like a Special K Raspberry Cheesecake Bar. It smells like a sweet vanilla, not a warm vanilla with a sweet raspberry scent underneath it. The raspberry is stronger than the vanilla, even though Cake says otherwise. The vanilla scent took me a while to distinguish because it's not the same as the traditional vanilla scents that things come in. It's more like a vanilla pastry than a vanilla candle or bath product. I wasn't so sure of Milk Made the first time I smelled it, but it is possibly my favorite smell ever now. It's almost like aromatherapy to me. It's relaxing and reminds me of baked goods and sweet treats. It's very sweet, so if you don't like sweet smelling things you probably won't like it.

The scent of the milk is strong. It will fill a room when it is sprayed. It clings to the skin for a while, but does not last as long as the scent in the Cake Body Mousse line. It lasts about three hours. For the last hour it is less noticeable. I get bad migraines and the Milk Made scent does not set them off. My migraines don't react as much to sweet scents as they do to perfume-y ones like Chanel No. 5 and things like that. If you have allergies or migraines that react to strong, sweet smells, this may well set them off.


The moisturizing properties of the milk are good, but not as good as Cake's Body Mousse line. I think I would have been much more impressed with this if I hadn't gotten spoiled with the Body Mousse first. When you spray the milk, you can feel an instant sense of hydration to the skin. It's not the same level of hydration that you get from a thick lotion, however. Since the milk is thinner, it just can't offer the same amounts of moisture. I've tried other spray lotions before and this one is more effective than others I have tried. More effective than other sprays still makes it less effective than a regular lotion and far less effective than a body butter or balm.

If you have very dry skin, this likely won't do much for you. If you have normal or oily skin but want a light moisturizer, this will do well in that instance. While it is winter at the time of writing this, I think this will make a great lotion for summertime. While the winter calls for heavy lotions due to extra dry skin, those same heavy lotions can feel like too much in the heat of summer. This lightweight lotion seems like it will provide a nice amount of moisture without giving any additional stick to the skin that certainly isn't wanted with the sun beating down. Another idea that I haven't gotten to test is to put it in the fridge as a cool off moisturizer for when you come in from the heat. I don't know if the milk ingredients will react well to this, but it's something to test out.

The moisture from the milk lasts about half the day. I don't reapply lotion, but if I did I would probably be putting this on again around noon. By that time I feel the effects of the milk start to diminish down somewhat and I feel like my skin loses some of the extra soft feel it had when I first sprayed the product. This is compared to the Body Mousse by Cake that gives me an incredibly soft feel all day long.

While the moisturizing isn't up to par with the Body Mousse, the complete lack of residue makes my texture sensitive skin very happy. I can touch my skin a second after applying this and all I feel is soft skin. No lotion, no stick, no grease. I'm very funny about lotions because of the feeling they tend to leave behind. I love that this product leaves nothing whatsoever.

I also am a huge fan of the scent. I know there are many people that are not a fan of the Milk Made scent, but it's one of my favorite ever smells. It lasts on the skin for a decent amount of time for a lotion. Many lotions cannot be smelled within moments of drying, so I count three hours as a pretty long lasting scent in a lotion.


There is no external packaging for this product. The bottle itself is done in pink and white. The front says "Cake Milk Made Body Hydrating Moisture Milk" in French and English (since Cake is Canadian). The back has a cute little blurb about the product and what it does as well as the ingredient list, also in French and English. It has contact information for Cake.

You get 250mL or 8.5 fl oz of product in the bottle. You do not need a lot of product to cover the body, so this should last a while.

Water (aqua), Isopropyl Palmitate, Caprylic/Capric Trigylceride, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Polysorbate 20, Fragrance (Parfum), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Extract, Milk Lipid, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hydroxide, Tetrasodium EDTA

Isopropyl Palmitate - A palm oil based emollient, moisturizer, thickening agent, and anti-static.

Caprylic/Capric Trigylceride - Fatty acids derived from coconut. Slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface.

Glycerin - A simple polyol compound. It is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations. Viscosity decreasing agent.

Glyceryl Stearate - A white or cream-colored wax-like solid. Esterification product of glycerin and stearic acid. Acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface.

Polysorbate 20 - A surfactant and emulsifier used in cleaners and personal care products.

Milk Lipid - Milk fat. Anti-aging & regenerating properties.

Inulin Lauryl Carbamate - The product formed by the reaction of lauryl isocyanate and Inulin. Emulsion stabilization.

Xanthan Gum - A polysaccharide, derived from the bacterial coat of Xanthomonas campestris. Used to produce a large increase in the viscosity of a liquid.

Phenoxyethanol - Ethylene glycol monophenyl ether. Preservative.

Sodium Hydroxide - Also known as lye and caustic soda, is a caustic metallic base. pH adjuster.

Tetrasodium EDTA - A chelating agent, used to sequester and decrease the reactivity of metal ions that may be present in a product.

I'm really not the biggest fan of the ingredients. Cake advertises that they are paraben free and you'll notice there are no parabens. There's a host of things I can't pronounce on there and some I can pronounce but don't want touching my skin. I'm not overly anal about these things, but when they go on and on about being a natural company and then have that laundry list of ingredients, I can't help but raise an eyebrow.

Personal comments

If you love the Milk Made smell, this is worth it just for that. If you're sensitive to that "lotion feel," this will be a true saving grace as a product that can provide a bit of hydration without giving any residue. If you're after deep moisture, this isn't going to do it. It's a great product for summer time. It's even good if you like to lotion mid day and don't want to have to deal with getting globs of lotion all over the place since the spray bottle application is a little easier.


I've never been huge on spray lotions, so I held off on getting this for a while. I find them to be messy and not as moisturizing as regular lotions. While Cake's version of a spray lotion was more moisturizing than the few other spray lotions I've tried, it still pretty much reminds me of other spray lotions. It's just not anywhere near the level of hydration you get from a thick lotion and there's a potential for over spray of product if you apply it hastily. I've been especially spoiled lately with Cake's Body Mousse, so this had a hard time following the amazing results I had been getting from that.

Where I will give Milk Made Moisture Milk some credit is for the staying power of the scent. Again, not as good as the Body Mousse, but way better than a lot of lotion products on the market. The scent is awesome, so even if this was basically no moisture and just a three hour perfume I'd still use it. Just not all over my body.

I'd say this is better than average if you compare it to other similar products. If you compare it to thicker lotions, it will fall short in both moisture and lasting ability. It outperforms in the sense that it leaves no residue. Depending on what exactly you're looking for depends on if one will outweigh the other. I mostly use this in the mornings if I want to smell like Milk Made. I don't rely on it as a moisturizer. Four stars for winning out over other spray lotions and not making my skin feel gross after applying it.

    Your reviews always rock. Never thought of trying a spray-on lotion. In fact, I didn't even really know that they existed. Think I'll pass though as the Cake line just doesn't quite do it for me scent wise. I'm so glad you like their products though cause I can experience them through your eyes!
