My Bathroom Smells Like A Bakery!

With a recent order on EdenFantasys, I wanted to take advantage of a new deal: free EF towel with bath and body products. I decided I’d give the Cake Milk Made frothing bath & shower cream a try.

Cake’s shower cream comes in a plastic 17 ounce bottle with a push tab top. This is a pretty good size for a shower product, especially considering the price. I looked at some of my other body washes, which all contain between 15 and 23 ounces.

The bottle is pretty cute and informative at the same time. There are no images on it, just different fonts and font colors used for all of the information. The front just shows Cake’s logo, along with Milk Made body and frothing bath & shower cream. The back states this is a rich, creamy, vitamin packed body wash that can also be used as a bubble bath. Cake suggests using Milk Made smoothing white sugar scrub and Milk Made hydrating moisture milk along with this product. This information is also given in French. Cake’s products are made in Canada, with the company located in Toronto. I don’t particularly care for the amount of fonts used in the description on the back. Using two different fonts would be okay, but the amount they used makes the description a little difficult and obnoxious to read, especially since my eye just keeps wanting to jump back to the pink font.





Even though this is for sale on EdenFantasys, this product is not a sex toy store specific one. The bottle is cute enough to give as a gift to anyone. It doesn’t say anything about coming from a sex toy store. It’s as discreet and clean looking as a bottle of cream coming from Avon or Sephora.

Ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus) Seed Oil, Canola Oil, Sodium Lauroamphoacetat, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Polyquaternium-7, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Fragrance (Parfum), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Althea Officinialis (Marshmallow) Extract, Milk Lipid, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid

As you can see, this product does contain glycerin. The packaging states it does not contain parabens. The ingredients include some natural oils and extracts like sunflower seed oil and marshmallow extract, which is nice. These, along with shea butter, will help make skin softer and healthier. This does contain milk lipids, which may or may not be a concern for some users. I noticed no irritation from this product when I used it as a body wash and bubble bath.

As with most bath products, the first thing I did was open the bottle to smell this. EdenFantasys lists this as being vanilla scented with a hint of raspberry. I’d say that’s a pretty good description of the scent. It’s sweetly scented with a nice hint of raspberry, almost like candy. If you’ve ever eaten fruity cereals like Trix, this actually smells a lot like milk will after the fruity/sugary coating on the cereal mixes in with the milk. The scent is nice and sweet, but not super heavy or strong. Using this in the shower left a light fragrance in my bathroom that went away not too long after I got out of the shower. It didn’t leave any scent on my skin, which was kind of disappointing. I did not taste this shower cream.

I feel this cream is very, very thin, unlike many of the body washes I have tried. It is very drippy and runny and very easy to squirt out. As a body wash, this can be difficult to work with, since you may get a lot more than you actually wanted, and it may all drip out of a mesh sponge before you even start washing with it. As a bubble bath, the thinness will allow you to easily pour this underneath a tub faucet. However, you may still end up pouring out more than you wanted. I actually get little blobs of this squirting out when I push the tab to open the bottle, just from gently squeezing the bottle to hold onto it. This is creamy white in appearance. It looks like a slightly thicker version of milk. There isn’t any sparkle or shimmer to this cream.

When I applied this to my mesh exfoliating sponge, it mostly dripped either right out of my sponge, or down into the middle of it. I put the sponge under the shower head for a few seconds to get some warm water on it and started scrubbing. This has a pretty good lather. I was able to get a good, thick layer of foam on most of my body using only about a tablespoon of shower cream. The lather I worked up was good enough for me to shave my legs with, which was nice. Compared to my usual body wash, which is an Olay wash with cream ribbons, this had about the same amount of lather and the same feel on my skin once I started washing. It rinsed away easily from both my skin and shower when I was done. I don’t think it moisturized my skin any different than my Olay wash does. I suppose, though, I am using a super moisturizing Olay body wash.

I also tested this out as a bubble bath. I poured maybe 2 tablespoons worth of cream under the faucet in my tub. Within just a few moments, a nice thick layer of bubbles began forming. This didn’t create huge bubbles like kids bubble bath would, but it did create some nice, soft, luxurious bubbles. They started to pop and disappear within 10 minutes of me turning off the water. The water did make my skin feel softer just from soaking. As with using the cream as a body wash, I did not notice any scent left on my skin.

Whichever way you use this product, it should last a decent amount of time, even with daily use. I take about 3 months to get through one bottle of body wash and I feel this bottle should last just as long.

When I showed this to my fiancĂ©, he also smelled it. He absolutely loves the scent and says he’s going to try using this.

I definitely recommend using this frothing bath and shower cream. Anyone can use and enjoy it. The price is a little high, but this smells so nice and you get a big enough bottle that it is worth it. I think this would make an excellent gift and plan on buying a bottle for a friend for Christmas. This could be combined with other Cake products to kind of build your own gift package. The only con I have for this is just the somewhat annoying fonts used in the description.

I give Cake’s Milk Made frothing bath and shower cream 5 stars.
