Banana Skin facial oil

5 out of 5 rating. See my 3 minute demo video of this facial oil below.

This is a solid facial oil. Lush has introduced four kinds. Some of you might be famiar with the popular 7 step korean skin care method. I follow the korean beauty trend. I also have been using the facial oils from the U.S. brand Sunday Riley. I love what facial oils do for my face.

So i was excited that Lush had created their own facial oils. And Lush went a step further by making their facial oils packageless, and solid.

I got all of them from the Lush 2018 creative showcase in Manchester England.

I wanted to try this Banana Skin first to review for you, mostly because this one is what my skin needs. Its nourishing and moisturizing for drier skin.

Right off the bat i can feel the difference tapioca flour that Lush adds to their facial oils makes. It makes it more of a dry oil, which i Love. If theres one thing i hate its having greasy/oily stuff lingering too long on my skin.

The scent is like custard. Lush adds tonka bean to this blend. In face there are SO many good things in this bar.

Lush uses tincture of bananas, which is factory waste, in the banana skin facial oil.

Then Lush adds mango butter, fresh bananas, organic grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, Ambrett seed oil, murumuru butter, Illipe butter, cupuacu butter, jojoba oil and sandalwood oil.

I love how it feels and how it works. I live that it sinks into my skin so fast. I can use a lot of this and my face will never get greasy.

I would say this performs as well as my sunday riley facial oils and my korean brands.

My skin looks great!

Bon Bomb

Lush Times 2005 description: Fans of the Butterball will be enchanted by its new little friend, the Bon Bomb, so named because Shona, who manages our Brighton shop announced that it had a ‘bon bon cream soda sort of scent’. It’s very fruity with a charmingly sweet, spicy flavour to it, rather like a posh perfume. Bathe with a Bon Bomb and your skin will smell very superior. It will also feel fabulous as we’ve pressed a mass of natural butters into each one; tiny pieces of mango butter, shea butter and organic avacado butter float around the bath until they meet your body, at which point they transform you into a softer, smoother, more mosturized person.

Vegan $3.30 3.3oz

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Perfume, Mango Butter (Mangifera indica), Avocado Butter (Persea gratissima), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides)

Review: This is a smaller bomb. I like the smell and was afraid I wouldn’t. I feared it would have that “Lemon Pledge” lemon smell but instead it’s very yummy lemon/lime sherbet smelling. It is pretty moisturizing too. Be careful this has so much cocoa butter that the tub can become very slippery. Also needs hot water so the coco butter melts fully and doesn’t form little globs in the water. I think this may become a staple ballistic for me.

Notes: The rare Lush “Fanfare” ballistic was the Bon Bomb scent, bigger size, and no cocoa butter.
