Please Desert this Island Immediately

An expensive bath and shower froth that smells and performs no better than a one dollar shower gel from your nearest supermarket. Also, it will probably dry out your skin. Don't bother, unless you want to smell like artificial coconut essence from a baking aisle.

Yum! Coconut! This is how I would explain my reason for buying this product. I have an unexplainable love for bath products that smell like sweets and I could not miss this one. I wish I did though. I have a weird belief that anything with coconut or cocoa butter would leave my skin moisturized. This shower gel has not only failed to hydrate my skin, it dried it out and left it irritated just after three days of use.


According to Cake Beauty website all of their products are paraben-free and are at least 90% natural. Let’s have a look at the ingredient list:

Water (Aqua), Sodium laureth sulfate, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Glycerin, PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, Laureth-7, Cocamide MEA, Glycol distearate, Parfum (Fragrance), Vitamin E (Tocopheryl acetate), Cocos nucifera (Coconut Oil), Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Benzophenone-4, Citric Acid

There is coconut oil towards the end of the list but other than that I could not find anything particularly natural about the ingredients above. More so, Sodium Laureth Sulfate is a well-known skin irritant. It is very cost-effective and yet an effective foaming agent that is widely used in cheap cosmetics. However, I expected better than that for 20$ and from a company that claims to use high quality ingredients (according to information on their website).

Smell and texture:

The shower gel smells like coconuts with a hint of vanilla. I am not talking about natural coconut and vanilla but the ones of artificial variety. It is not unpleasant, but you would expect a 20$ shower gel to smell less cheap. The gel is peach in colour and has medium thickness. It does lather rather well and creates a nice thick foam. Unfortunately, from my experience, good foaming ability is a synonym for harsh ingredients. Indeed, this shower gel has left my skin dry and scaly despite the fact that I always apply good moisturizer after showering.

    SLES is not just there to foam, it's the thing that actually does the cleaning. Hence why it may be irritating. Foaming is rather created by Cocamide MEA.
