Lush used to make them in long cylindrical poles and then the last year they were around they started making the boring rectangle. But the soap didn’t change, it was still nice.

You have to get a good fresh piece to appreciate this. It’s creamy, banana-y and nice. It should smell like banana runts even though it is a natural, not fake, smell. It’s also a gentle soap.
2006 LT description: One of the things that irritates us just slightly is when we’re not having a good day is that it’s perfectly legal to call something banana soap when it doesn’t have any bananas in it, but merely a dab of synthetic banana fragrance. Our banana soap has lots of fresh bananas in it; we mash them up, mix them with yoghurt, soap flakes and essential oils and make a truly bananafied, moisturizing soap that smells of bananas because it’s full of them.

Lush Gumback Express shower smoothie, A Little Monkey bubble bar, and Banana Moon soap. All made in the same scent family.
Gumback Express was discontinued in the mid 2000’s and so was Banana Moon. I didn’t think Gumback Smootie smelled like bananas, but i did think the Banana moon did and Little Monkey did too. The soap was great for people with dry skin like me. Lush has made other banana product but they’re not in this scent family.
