Be Delectable Hand Cream from Cake Beauty Review

The Be Delectable Collection, which can be found at Kohl's in the US & Target in Canada, comes from the maker of Cake Beauty. Cake Beauty is a Canadian brand. I remember when Cake Beauty first started. It was composed of two women, that literally created beauty treats from their kitchen. There's only one owner now (Heather). Some of my older readers may remember the other owner, Rosie of Sweetapolita, from my post in 2012. I tried Cake Beauty products a long time ago and they were sweet (like literally icing on the cake). I'll test out Cake Beauty's products again and showcase them on the blog for you before year's end. Last year, I was excited to see a spin off to Cake Beauty, called Be Delectable. At first it was only available in Canada, but it can now be found here in the States. The collection offers FOUR scents in body wash, body lotion, body polish, body mist, and hand cream. I don't have a Kohl's nearby, so I wasn't sure which scent I would like. Therefore I thought purchasing the hand creams would be a safe bet, to see if I wanted to order more of a particular item (scent). This is my review of the hand creams ($14.00 USD).
How cute is the packaging? The box contains 4 (four) tubes of scented hand creams. The scents are Strawberry & Cream, Lemon & Cream, Vanilla & Cream, and Coconut & Cream. These hand creams are FREE OF parabens, sodium chloride, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, GMO's, mineral oil, petrolatum, gluten and triclosan.
I thought I would be able to review them as a whole, but there were some differences. 
Therefore I'm reviewing them individually below. 
(note: the soap cupcake is not part of the collection. i used it for decoration).

Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Be Delectable Vanilla & Cream Hand Cream (Supersweet)
The vanilla & cream is super awesome. Not all vanilla scents are equal! This is not one of those light or weak vanilla scents. It's rich! It's warm! It reminds me of natural vanilla bean. I love it. The lotion is white in color, creamy and left my hands moisturized. I loved it.

Be Delectable Coconut & Cream Hand Cream (Supersweet)
The Coconut & Cream scented hand cream is T-R-O-P-I-C-A-L! Dream of lounging on an island & drinking a tropical drink! Yes, that's what THIS is! It's sweet. To me, it's a vanilla & coconut blend. It's Spring. It's Summer. This is lighter than the vanilla scented hand cream above. It will put a smile on your face :). Very creamy. Very moisturizing.

Be Delectable Strawberry & Cream (Supersweet)
FRESH (and I mean fresh) strawberries & cream! That's the only way to describe it. It smells yummy! Wear it and I bet someone will ask if you've been eating or have strawberries stored nearby. It's that good. This lotion is a light pink color. Just as the others, it's creamy and moisturizing.

Be Delectable Lemon & Cream Hand Cream (Not Sweet)
No, that's not a typo! I was extremely shocked when I smelled this scent. I don't know if I had a bad batch or what, but the Lemon & Cream hand cream smelled literally like lemon furniture polish. It didn't smell good at all. This scent was so OFF compared to the rest. If anyone else has tried lemon & cream, please share your thoughts. Again, I don't live near a Kohl's to see for myself. So disappointed! I like lemon (but definitely not this one)!

Overall, I'm really impressed with the Be Delectable Hand Cream set (except for Lemon hahaha). For $14 (USD) you really get good quality hand creams.The tubes will easily fit into your purse. If you bring them to work, they just might get swiped! Leave the lemon one out as a decoy and they won't bother you anymore. LOL I would like to add one more thing, these hand creams should be used right away! I purchased these in December and the scents are not as powerful now (February). So don't let them sit. Shelf life must be an issue. Those are my thoughts. Have a great week loves!

  1. Well, not counting the lemon one (which is disappointing since I usually love those citrusy scents myself), sounds like overall a great set!

  2. I want to try the Strawberry and Cream! I would say the Lemon one would be my top go to choice, but nevermind! :)

  3. Adorable packaging! What a pity about the lemon version, it's usually one of my favourite scents. Still the other three sound lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh dear the lemon one would have been my favourite choice but I guess it's awful! xD
    Otherwise, the products look absolutely lovely! :D

  5. Great review, Kim! Shame about the lemon scent. I adore anything with a lemon fragrance, so it's a shame this one didn't work. x

  6. They look lovely Kim.....normally I would choose the lemon over other scents first! Have a good week:)

  7. Well, these sound awesome doll! Shame the one was a dud, but to be honest, I wouldn't have picked that one anyways as I don't tend to like lemon smells. But, am happy the rest are wonderful for you :)) Super review doll. I hope you have a great week :)

  8. Love the packaging, it's bad that one was not good but still it's a nice and impressive hand care set! Great review girl! Have a bright and lovely Monday <3 Kisses <3

  10. HI Kim! This brand inspires me a lot, it must be so sweet and good! The packaging of the box is adorable, the hand creams sounds great, despite the lemon and cream one, what a shame for it! The vanilla flavor is my fav. Have a great week dear! xo

  11. Strange that the lemon one smelled so off! But the others sounds fantastically sweet…. will look out for them the next time I am in the US

  12. Kim, I've tried Cake Beauty before and did quite like it:) I don't think I've tried these hand creams before, and it's good to know they're really moisturizing. Sorry to hear about the lemon one though. I hope it's just a bad batch, coz lemon is one of my fave scents and that would probably be the one I would be likely to try first.
    Happy Monday:)

  13. the strawberry one must be mine!
    lovely review Kim

    ReplyDelete
  14. Dear Kim, if they have a short shelf life it means they are even more natural! The packaging is too cute, and I wouldn't mind for a lemon scented cream anyway. So let's dip in Vanilla & cream!!

  18. A very honest review, Kim. I don't know this brand but I'm always interested in hand creams especially if they are small enough to put in a handbag. Coconut always reminds me of hoildays but I like the sound of the vanilla one in particular. Nice packaging and I like the fact that they are paraben etc. free. Have a good week!

  19. The packaging is solo cute! too bad for the lemon scent.. you made me laugh when you pointed out that it smelled like furniture polish.

  22. The coconut scented lotion sounds dreamy! I'm surprised that the Lemon wasn't as good. I thought for sure it would be citrusy and refreshing!

  23. Looks so good and yummy at the same time, makes me want to grab that cupcake kinda and eat it. I like the strawberry and cream scent though. The packaging is also adorable. Too bad for the lemon scent.

  25. If I could this wrapped up in a gift box I would be more than thrilled, it sounds so heavenly, vanilla & cream! My favorite scent. I like the story behind the brand as well.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Those are cute! I am a sucker for cute packaging, haha. Bummer that the scents get weaker over time. I like to switch up my lotions so i don't know if these would work well for me!

  43. Yes please on the vanilla hand cream. And you're right, the packaging is adorable. Excited to try it once my current hand cream runs out!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cake Beauty is definitely one of my favourite Canadian beauty brands and I've been very interested in trying Be Delectable but haven't found it in stores yet. I might have gone for the lemon scent so I'm glad I read your review first - definitely going to choose vanilla instead, it sounds fabulous!

  58. I tried these out last year in December while at Kohl's. The vanilla scent is my most favorite. At first the scent is soooooooo good and yummy, I literally went crazy but after a few minutes it wore off and left unpleasant scent. Its texture is rich though. Thanks for great reviews Kim.

  65. I haven't tried these before and don't live close to a Kohls either. I agree with you that the packaging is cute and that the scents sound great. I am disappointed to hear about the lemon though as I normally love a lemon scent.

  66. How sad, I normally love lemon! Still, the coconut and, well, let's be honest, ALL of the rest of them sound amazing! The shelf life is probably an issue because they don't use preservatives, it's the same with LUSH products. Sounds like a great set! I may pick up some for myself... :)

  70. Hey Kim! I hope all is well. I saw your tweet about being asked not to disclose if a post is sponsored. I never check my blog e-mail any more as I stopped blogging about 9 months ago, but I just checked today and a company e-mailed me asking to take off the word sponsored from two posts from over a year ago! I ignored it because I am pretty sure that is like illegal. I appreciate you always being honest!

  76. Lol, I thought for sure that soap pancake was part of the collection! These sound nice (except for the lemon furniture polish one, of course), but I'm a little wary of strongly scented lotions since I have allergies to fragrances. Still, I might have to order a set (there's no Kohl's near me either) to see what they are like.

    ReplyDelete
  77. i love the packaging as well. i love anything lemon and coconut so i can only imagine how good that coconut smelled. bummer about the lemon, tho!!
