Are you obsessed with Banana scents? If so, the upcoming Limited Edition The Body Shop Banana Body Care Line will be just the thing for you! This line is enriched with Community Trade Banana Puree, made from Bananas that are not used in the food industry. This way, the bananas can still be used and farmers are able to sell their bananas for an honest price. For today’s post, I’m going to show you a selection of products that are featured in the The Body Shop Banana Body Care Line.
No The Body Shop line complete without their famous Body Butters. The The Body Shop Banana Body Butter (€17,00 Euro/200 mL) has a vibrant, fun packaging with a yellow jar and an image on top showing cute banana sketches and quotes. The scent is strong and creamy with a sweet banana scent, which reminds me of those gummy banana candies.
Like all the Body Butters, the The Body Shop Banana Body Butter feels nicely rich and creamy, leaving a soft skin and providing up to 24 hours of moisture.
The formula is 100% Vegan. Here’s the full ingredients list:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter/Cocoa Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter Extract/ Shea Butter Extract, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil/Sesame Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycine Soja Oil/Soybean Oil, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Parfum/Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Musa Sapientum Fruit Extract/Banana Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Tocopherol, Linalool, Coumarin, Citric Acid, Eugenol, Denatonium Benzoate, Ascorbic Acid, Isoeugenol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil/Sunflower Seed Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 15985/Yellow 6.
The The Body Shop Banana Body Care Line also features a Banana version of the new Body Yogurts (review here)! The The Body Shop Banana Body Yogurt (€10,00 Euro/200 mL) has the same vibrant packaging as the Body Butter, but the scent is slightly different. Like I’ve noticed with other Body Yogurts, these are heavily scented, even stronger than the Body Butters and smell less creamy. Other than that, it still smells like the gummy banana candies!
The The Body Shop Banana Body Yogurt feels like a lightweight gel/lotion and absorbs immediately into the skin, leaving the skin feeling soft and hydrated for up to 48 hours.
This formula is also 100% vegan. The full ingredients list is as follows:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Parfum/Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter Extract/Shea Butter Extract, Musa Sapientum Fruit Extract/Banana Fruit Extract, Dimethiconol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Linalool, Coumarin, Eugenol, Denatonium Benzoate, Ascorbic Acid, Isoeugenol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Seed Extract/Sweet Almond Seed Extract, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 15985/Yellow 6.
Going completely bananas? You can also get an awesome The Body Shop Banana Pop Special Edition Essential Selection Pouch Gift Set (€24,00 Euro). This set includes a Banana Shower Cream (250 mL, not shown in picture), a Banana Body Butter (200 mL), a Banana–stamped Shower Cap and a Banana Pouch.
I think that the products of the The Body Shop Banana Body Care Line are great! You of course do have to love banana scents in order to like this line. I’m not a huge fan of fruity scents but this one is still nicely pleasurable to me, since it is also sweet and a bit creamy.
The The Body Shop Banana Body Care Line will be available starting from July 2018 at TheBodyShop.nl and The Body Shop stores.
