This un-scented & un-coloured formula has all of the same great benefits of our original ultra moisturizing & light weight body mousse, specially formulated for extra sensitive skin.As I’ve often mentioned, my skin gets really dry, especially this time of year. I’m always up for trying new moisturizers and lotions because I never know if something might work better for me than what I’m currently using or have previously used.

I do have rather sensitive skin though, so I try to avoid anything containing parabens and stick with all-natural products whenever possible. I seriously love the Intimate Organics Body Souffle, but I go through that stuff fairly quickly, and it’s been out of stock for ages.

Cake Supreme Body Mousse skin care lotionIn addition to all the sex toys and lingerie they sell, EdenFantasys.com recently added a bevy of bath and body products to their offerings, so I decided to try the Cake Supreme Body Mousse. I’m not a fan of heavily perfumed lotions, so I opted for the “unsweet” because it’s unscented. It’s also paraben-free, and claims to be good for sensitive skin.

I diligently read the labels on everything I use, from food to lube to body care products, and whenever I come across ingredients I can’t identify, I look them up. Often something simple like a coconut oil derivative or a particular vitamin can have scary-sounding clinical names.

Cake Supreme Body Mousse skin care lotionThere were a few such ingredients in this lotion, so I’ve listed them below, but there’s nothing in Cake Supreme Body Mousse that particularly concerns me. Obviously, since it has glycerin in it I won’t be using it anywhere near my genitals, but then again, I never planned to.

Ingredients:

  • Water
  • Glycerin
  • Caprylic/Capric triglyceride: This is fractionated coconut oil, which is often used in cosmetics as a thickener as well as to maintain moisture on the surface of the skin.
  • Cetyl alcohol: A fatty alcohol often used in lotions and creams as an emulsifier.
  • Stearic acid: A fatty acid used as an emulsifier and surfactant in cosmetics.
  • Sunflower seed oil
  • Coconut oil (presumably not fractionated)
  • Macadamia integrifolia seed oil: From macadamia nuts, acts as a skin conditioning agent.
  • Mango alcohol (don’t drink this lotion)
  • Isopropyl palmiate: Used in cosmetics and skin care products as a binder and lubricant.
  • Dimethicone: A silicone based polymer that’s widely used in skin care products as a conditioner and protectant.
  • Vitamin E
  • Aloe barbadensis leaf juice (aloe vera juice)
  • Phenoxyethanol: This inhibits microbial growth.
  • Caprylyl Glycol: A preservative and skin conditioning agent.
  • Sorbic Acid: Preservative.
  • Carbomer: Acts as an emulsifier and helps to maintain consistency.
  • Triethanolamine: Helps control the pH and also acts as an emulsifier.
  • Tetrasodium EDTA: Preservative.

Cake Supreme Body Mousse skin care lotionCake Supreme Body Mousse comes in a clear plastic bottle with a flip-top cap. Even though it’s a thick lotion, it’s easy to dispense with just a quick squeeze of the bottle. Because it’s called a “mousse” I really expected this lotion to have a light and airy, almost whipped consistency similar to the Intimate Organics Body Souffle (I must admit that I really don’t understand the fascination with naming skin care products after food). But instead, it’s like regular lotion with more of a waxy feel.

Cake Supreme Body Mousse skin care lotionIt spreads nicely, rubs in easily, and feels good on my skin when applied. It does leave a slightly moist-feeling residue for a few moments before it totally gets absorbed–or maybe whatever is left of it on my skin’s surface just simply dissipates, but I don’t mind that in the least.

I’ve used other lotions in the past that left an unpleasant greasy feel or otherwise didn’t seem to sink into my skin very well. I don’t experience that with Cake Supreme Body Mousse. It  makes my skin feel very soft and moisturized, which isn’t an easy task.

A pea-sized amount is plenty to cover my hands, and a dime-sized blob of it will do my hands and forearms, but I’m pretty heavy-handed with the stuff and freely admit that I slather on more than I really need. Maybe if I used less then it would absorb more quickly.

Cake Supreme Body Mousse skin care lotionOh, and this is by far the best-smelling unscented lotion I’ve ever used. That may not make a lot of sense, because really, it shouldn’t smell like anything. But some unscented products I’ve tried seemed to pick up the smell of their plastic packaging, or otherwise have a faint smell that isn’t really bad, but it’s still there.

This stuff has an ever-so-slight scent to it that is very nice, if hard to describe. It’s not fruity, but more of a clean, fresh, and very subtle aroma without smelling at all soapy. I’m definitely glad I got some of this, thanks to accumulated gift cards and reward points, and I’m eager to see what some of the other Cake Beauty products are like.
