Soft as a baby's bum!

Who says there needs to be a special occasion to pamper ones self? The Good For You Milk Made Duo set is the perfect "at home spa treatment" that takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish and lasts all day long! Small amounts needed, per use, make this a long lasting product with individual bottles sold in the event of needing to restock items! Easy to use with wonderful results! I HIGHLY recommend this product!
Exfoliates, Moisturizes, Set, great gift,any occasion,works well
Bottle leaks, some may have allergies or sensitivity issues depending on skin.

extremely useful review


Cake never ceases to amaze me with their products! The Good For You Milk Made Duo is an exceptional product that definitely exceeded my expectations. The duo includes two products to help cure dry skin. This set includes: Milk made hand creme (3.4 fl.oz) and milk made smoothing hand and cuticle buffer (4.9 fl.oz). With the set also comes a small, plastic spoon to mix the contents of the buffer. The buffer will slough away dead, flaky skin (and moisturize at the same time with the essential oils that are in it!) and the hand cream is a great back up for any additional moisturizing that may be needed. Simply take the spoon, stir the contents of the hand buffer so that the sugar crystals (at the bottom of the jar) and the oils that have floated to the top of the jar can combine evenly. Next, spoon a very small amount of the mixture out onto your hand. Scrub together vigorously for roughly 30 seconds. Next, rinse thoroughly. After rinsing, pat dry. You will notice a slight oily film left behind. This is the essential oils. Do not wipe this off!!! Rub it into the skin and watch your hands glisten and create a silky softness! If any moisturizing is needed after this step (it wasn't necessary for me) you can add a very small dab of the hand creme! Because of how little you will have to use, this product will go a long ways and last a long time. The buffer will run out before the hand creme, but they are also sold individually, so no worries!

Some people that have sensitive skin may see a redness or blotchy discoloration in their hands. This product may also cause a slight itchiness, depending on your level of sensitivity.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The hand creme is a very thick, creamy lotion. It absorbs quickly into the skin and dries fast. The buffer has oils and sugar in it. The sugars are what help to slough away the dead skin. The oils are what help to moisturize. The oil is pretty thin and runs fast. The sugars are not really a fine grit, its more of a "medium grit" in my opinion.
    • Creamy
    • Oily
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

The scent in this duo is Raspberry kiss/Vanilla is a very sweet, rich scent. The scent is everything that the name implies. It is a very strong smell and does stick around long after use. I love the scent of this buffer and the cream. It has a strong smell to it but it is not overpowering. It can also be layered with other scents depending on the scent.

I suffer from very dry hands and around my cuticles are especially rough. I constantly have those little pieces of skin that tear off on the sides of my fingers and normally, I chew or bite them off. (I know, disgusting habit). Which in turn makes them bleed or hurt really bad for days. After using the buffer and rubbing the oils into my hands, I noticed an instant difference in the appearance of my hands, as well as the feel. It takes a few moments (after rubbing the oils in) for my hands to completely dry. When they do, its almost like a silky or satin feeling when I rub my hands together. I ran my hand over my husbands face and he was really impressed with how well the buffer had worked on my hands. I smoke a lot, I type constantly throughout the day and I sit next to a window when I smoke so I tend to have rough or dry hands. No more with this product! The oils and buffer did such a great job on my hands that I did not have any need for the hand cream. After a few hours, I did notice that my hands were drying out a bit. I took the hand cream and put about a pea size drop into the palm of my hand. A pea size drop was able to moisturize my hands, wrists and I still had a little left to rub around the base of my neck for a little added scent! My husband enjoys this scent as well, and says that its a "light scent". The lotion works just as well as the buffer did, moisturizing and keeping my hands feeling satiny soft!

Personally, I like to think of this as a 1 step treatment with a back up or maintenance cream! I did notice that my hands turned a little blotchy and red after using the buffer. I have noticed over the past few months, my skin has been increasingly irritated by the smallest of things. I never used to have any allergic reactions or sensitivities to products before. However, since the redness and bitchiness went about after about 10 minutes or so, I chalked it up to just being irritated by the scrub. I was scrubbing the sugars pretty good into my hands, so that's probably what happened.


The packaging for this product was pretty minimal. There wasn't anything too fancy about the box. It was your run of the mill box with a photo of the two products and a spoon on the front. There was also text on the front with the title/name of the product.

The bottle for the buffer did leak quite a bit after I had opened it for the first time. Sugar and oil will drip down the sides of this jar when you try to extract the product to use. Make sure that this jar is not left on any wood tables/counter tops or else it will leave a stain. Also make sure that you do not get this product on any clothing, as it will stain those as well. Try to place a piece of paper or paper towel (or towel/washcloth) underneath the jar before use. Make sure that you have all your items needed (hand towel) nearby, waiting for use.
    • Leaky container
    • Messy dispenser
    • Would make a nice gift
Follow-up commentary
I am in LOVE with this buffer and lotion set! I use the lotion from time to time, without the buffer and it still gives me that silky, luxurious feeling after use. The buffer is amazing for my hands, elbows and feet! I just did a foot tub soak today and used my buffer afterwards. My feet are so silky and soft right now, I love it! I recommend this set to anyone that loves their spa or body products. Its well worth the money! And it lasts forever! I have used this at least twice or three times a week since getting it and theres still half a bottle left! Usually, I have to wipe down the screw on top though so the sugar doesn't get ground into the cap. Otherwise, love love!
