Here’s a review of one of the other products I was pleasantly surprised by: Milk Made Hand Creme by Cake.
I first received this as a gift from the W Network about a year ago. I had no idea what it was and had never heard of the brand before (apparently it’s some sort of upscale trendy brand?? And it’s Canadian!) but decided to give it a go.
Boy, was I surprised! This hand cream is absolutely divine. It feels creamy and very smooth, and spreads easily on your hands. It absorbs within a reasonable amount of time and doesn’t leave that gross greasy residue.
This cream gets big points on the moisture factor: it leaves your hands supple and soft; I particularly like using it on my cuticles and areas of my hand that get the most dry. It is quite simply a pleasure to use.
So what are the major drawbacks?
The Smell: It has marshmallow extract in it, which makes it smell like some sort of super-sweet, somehow creamy vanilla marshmallow. Totally eatable. If you’re into smelling like candy and/or baked goods, then you’ll probably love this to bits. I, however, prefer a less noticeable scent. Though I must admit that I’ve gotten used to it now, and the benefits still outweigh this minor detail.
The Price: At $18 a pop for a small tube, it is definitely an indulgence. I have received 3 tubes in succession as Ad Gifts therefore never having to purchase it myself. Will I buy it again once I run out? Possibly. Though I would definitely check for sales, discounts or trades on Makeup Alley, etc. first, and avoid paying full cost if possible.
So where can you get this?
I’ve seen the line at certain Bay stores. I’ll bet its at the nicer Sears locations (Eaton Centre) as well. Oh, what the hell. Here’s a link to their locations.
Overall I think this is a great product and would recommend it to anyone who’s not afraid to splurge from time to time. I’d love to hear if anyone else has tried this product, and what they thought of it!
…I sure hope I get some more as gifts!!!
