Cake ”Intensive Hand Repair Balm” – Review

Hello hello!

Today I’m finally reviewing the Cake “Intensive Hand Repair Balm” that I received in my Summer 2013 Loose Button Luxe Box!

we leave out parabens, sodium chloride, phtalates, GMO’s, mineral oil, petrolatum, gluten, triclosan

That’s pretty damn good if you ask me!

Scent

O-M-G this cream smells DE-LI-CIOUS!!! Cake describes this scent as Warm French Vanilla. I find it’s like frosting on a cake. I just want to slather this onto some cookies and eat it!

The scent lasts as well; I put this on before going to bed and my hands still smell yummy in the morning. It’s not a strong smell though, I don’t find it overpowering. It just lasts.

Formula/Texture

This is a heavy cream; it’s like a butter. It’s quite thick and as you can see from the picture bellow it keeps its shape when you squeeze it out of the tube.

Since this is a heavy cream it will leave your hands feeling greasy – that is why I use it before bed. I don’t have dry skin, but it has been feeling dryer since I got pregnant and using this overnight makes me wake up with very smooth hands.

Bottom Line

I love it! If you don’t like sweet scents or heavy creams then this product is not for you. But if you love sweet scents and don’t mind heavy creams, or need one, then go buy this product!

This hand cream retails for $22 (CAD).

Have you tried this one?
