Holiday handful trio - hand cream by Cake Beauty - review by geliebt

So sweet smelling and luxurious! Well worth a try.

I'm very happy with these! The scents are wonderful (especially Vanilla Snow Woman!) and there is an unscented option for those wanting to keep away from extra scents, or sensitive users. I think there's something here for everyone. They moisturize well, and when fully rubbed in do not leave any greasy residue behind.

extremely useful review


This set of three 3.4 fl. oz. lotions in varying scents (including unscented) is perfect for dry hands, or any other body part! These are just great overall lotions, not limited to just your hands by any means. The set seems fairly feminine, what with the cutesy pink branding and such, but of course anyone interested could use the lotions. The UnSweet lotion is really not feminine or masculine, necessarily, and leans more stereotypically "male" than the other two. Milk Made, while still a little "girly," is not overly so. Vanilla Snow Woman seems the most girlish-looking packaging, and has the sweetest scent as well. But again, totally up to you!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

These lotions are very thick, thicker than many drugstore lotions that I've used. It won't slide off your hand easily unless you shake it around, and I like this. It makes for precise application and you won't end up with lotion dripping off you like other brands.
It's very very creamy and easy to spread over your skin, as well! It sort of melts into your skin a bit, and rubs in nicely. It definitely feels good, but disappears once rubbed in fully and doesn't leave any greasy residue behind.

Taste / Aroma

I did not taste any of these. I don't recommend you do either, since this is not meant to be eaten!

The scents, however, are wonderful!

UnSweet is unscented, and smells only lightly of the ingredients.

Milk Made does smell much like raspberries. To me, there isn't much milk or vanilla scent, just tart raspberry (like real raspberries, not artificial, sweet raspberry scent!). This is a very light scent, and quite tart (not too much sweetness to this one), but it's obvious and does stick around for about an hour or two depending on how much you use.

Vanilla Snow Woman is AMAZING! It's a very, very sweet scent and smells almost exactly like storebought cake/cupcake frosting. It's vanilla-y and sweet and wonderful! This also sticks around for around an hour or two. I can't get over how much I love this scent. If you like sweet and/or foodie smells, then this is absolutely for you!


I'm a big fan of these. They're creamy and thick, and easy to spread onto the skin. I find that they moisturize really well and are perfect for after shaving, or just when your skin is dry from whatever might dry your skin.
When rubbed in completely, they leave no greasy residue. However, it can take a little work to get them totally rubbed in, unless your skin is very very dry, so keep that in mind. I find that if I just keep rubbing, they soak in completely without extra slipperyness left behind!


These came in a fairly compact cardboard box, with a cutout in the front to show you the products. The box had basic information about the lotions, nothing special. It was cute and pink and appropriate for gift-giving! It was easy for me to open, and I loved that it had no extra junk- just a cardboard box, and the tubes of lotion.
Each tube is fairly small and fits easily in my hand. The plastic making up the body is soft, shiny and easy to squeeze. The cap is hard, white plastic. Both the body and the cap seem sturdy and I don't think they'll be breaking any time soon.
The size of these makes them appropriate for travel as they're pretty small and compact, but I would put them in a plastic bag to prevent accidents.
Follow-up commentary
I'm almost out of my Vanilla Snow Woman! I use it WAY too much, I just love smelling like cake! These lotions have served me really well- still just as awesomely moisturizing and awesome smelling as before. I may have to pick up another set!
