REVIEW: Cake Heavy Cream Intensive Hand Repair Balm

by - February 28, 2019

Hey guys! I was terrified that when winter came my hands were going to end up the way they usually do at this time of year - with brittle, breaking nails and cracking cuticles - so I've been doing basically everything I can to negate that by making sure that I'm using cuticle oil and hand cream pretty much constantly. If you checked out my review of the Cake Milk Made Velveteen Hand Cream, you already know how much I loved it, so obviously I was really excited when I found the Cake Heavy Cream Rich Vanilla Shea Butter Intensive Hand Repair Balm in my stocking this past Christmas courtesy of my guy just in time for the polar vortex.

blended with a decadent buttercream frosting in mind, this balm perfectly coats your hands with nourishment, sinking in quickly for noticeably softer, smoother hands, without the harsh chemicals. topped off with the beloved scent of our warm french vanilla blend, this balm is the ultimate in ultra-ultra indulgence. (you’re a balm’shell, baby.)

I love that they compare this cream to the texture of butter cream icing in their description, because that's exactly how I'd describe it. It's rich, but a little bit fluffy and very smooth. It's definitely a rich cream and it's one that I tend to reach for either at night or when I'm flopped back on the couch and I know I don't have to do anything with my hands for a while, because it's definitely not one that's going to sink in super quickly and disappear. I tend to think of this like I think about my more rich night creams, something to really impart a lot of moisture while I rest, and it does an amazing job of that. I'm actually almost through this entire tube by now because I use it quite frequently, and I really believe that it's been helping keep my hands in really good shape throughout this cold weather that would usually be ravaging them. 

I highly, highly recommend checking out all of the Cake hand creams and lotions because I've really, really enjoyed them. I personally love the way they smell - seriously, every scent is absolutely delicious - and I think they have a good range of different textures and hydration levels so pretty much everyone will be able to find something to suit their needs. 

The Cake Heavy Cream Intensive Hand Repair Balm is available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart and retails for $7.99CAD.

Thanks for reading!
