I love everything about this product. That’s why you can find it in the ‘Shop my Favourites’ page, and why I talk about it quite a lot. It’s one of those products, that looks like a gimmick, but works really well. I mean the things shaped like a banana.
What Is It?
You know you’ve got a cracking opening paragraph when you have to then go on to explain what the hell you’re talking about. This Magic Food Banana Sleeping Pack, is an overnight cream that is extremely moisturising. As a dry skinned girl, I love anything that’s ultra moisturising. I use this daily, and I’ve noticed an enormous difference.
Is It Scented?
It is scented, and it’s a strong one. If that’s a deal breaker then it’s something to consider. I love the scent, as it’s just like banana.This might be because it contains Musa Sapientum, which I’m now learning is the posh name for banana. Who says Blogging doesn’t teach you anything? Pft.
What Else Does it Contain?
I’ve had to Google this, as once you chuck the box you’re doomed. Not literally, but the banana doesn’t have the ingredients list on the back. I’m not going to list everything, but this is what I’ve found on the Tony Moly site. It contains:
- Banana Extract – Potassium and Vitamin A helps hydrate and protect.
- Milk Protein – Nutrient rich properties which help to replenish lost moisture
- Chamomile Extract – This will help to soothe the skin
I’m also going to mention Glycerin, as I know I’ve heard that before. I’ve given it a quick google and the results are for a healthier, natural-looking appearance. Which is always good right?
What’s The Texture Like?
The textures thick and a little bit goes a long way. You really don’t need that much to cover your face and neck. However it absorbs quickly, so you aren’t left feeling heavy and sticky.
Where Can I Get It? / Price
I got mine from Cult Beauty some time before Christmas, but it’s out of stock on there. So I did a little digging, and found out you can also get it from Selfridges and House of Fraser. I have no idea why, but it costs 50p extra on Selfridges than it does on the other two. On Cult Beauty and House of Fraser it’s £15.50, but on Selfridges it’s £16.
Does It Work?
In my opinion, yes! If I keep up with using it then my skin looks great, and the effects are visible in the morning. My skin looks refreshed and a lot more hydrated.
So overall I think it’s a really great sleeping mask. The only major problem could be the scent, as I know a lot of people are sensitive to strong scents.
As mentioned above, you can get your hands on this, from:
