The Body Shop Banana Nourishing Body Butter Review

Do your skin a favor and pick yourself up a jar of THIS! LOL I stopped purchasing body butters from The Body Shop for a long time, because they always felt so heavy on my skin. Well lately, I've really been impressed with their formula. Last year, their Pinita Colada collection was a major hit. It's still available and I plan on picking it up this year. Now, they've introduced a Banana ... Body Butter and Yogurt version! I purchased the Body Butter ($21 on sale for $13...always wait for a sale! The Body Shop and ULTA offer a number of sales throughout the season). Go Bananas, YES! Totally Bananas, YES! Bananas Over You, YES...YES....YES! This formula is enriched with Community Trade banana puree and has a 100% Vegan formula. 24 hour moisture? I've been wearing it for 12 hours and my skin still feels soft. The scent is so authentic! It's not overwhelming and it's not too light! Just right. When you open the jar, it looks like butter. LOL But the formula is so smooth, lightweight & creamy. It works really well into the skin and there is absolutely NO stickiness, greasiness, tackiness or heaviness. My skin felt nourished and when you're constantly smelling your arm, that says a lot. LOL If you're looking for something different for Spring & Summer, give this a try. It's a nice treat for the skin. I purchased the Banana Nourishing Body Butter from ULTA BEAUTY! They also have the banana yogurt version (it's just a different consistency, but offers the same benefits). If you're not fond of bananas, they have body yogurt and butter versions in strawberry, mango, coconut, almond milk & honey, British Rose and Moringa. Also, if you have dry hair, I've been testing out The Body Shop's Banana Truly Shampoo & Conditioner and it is so good. Besides the great scent it is really nourishing for dry hair. There's also a banana hair mask, but I haven't tried it.

  2. I tried the Body Shop's Body Butters again for the first time in a long time at the ned of last year and I was really pleasantly surprised by how light yet hydrating they felt. This banana sounds really good Kim! This gives me an excuse to go hit up the new Ulta in the city ;p

  3. To be honest, I am not a massive fan of bananas, flavour or scent, but I would 100% buy this just for the packaging, I love it! haha. Loving your blog here too, by the way, well done pretty lady! x

  4. OH that looks so fun, and I like the updated packaging! I don't know when the Body SHop has sales here, I once got a lovely shower gel in the end of season sale I think, as it was a CHristmas one marked down, and it was the best (but being seasonal, discontinued!) I need to keep my eye out for sales more often, as I do love their body butters - they are perfect for travel, and now when I use them it brings back memories of different trips! :)

    Hope you are having a nice start to your week! We are looking forward to the Easter long weekend here.

  6. I'm not sure I'm on board with a banana scent but I have a coconut one from them I love! I'm curious though now haha, so I'll have to go give it a try!

  7. I love the packaging.
    Something very chic and what a great review.

  8. I love Body Shop body butters and always have. They were an essential for me growing up in central Canada, where the weather is just so dry. But I always stick to the classics, like shea and olive. I'm always very wary of banana scents - I love real bananas and a faux banana scent doesn't do it for me. But with all the banana puree that goes into this, I think I'll have to at least stop by a store and test it for myself!

  9. This sounds lovely! I feel like it would make me want a strawberry banana smoothie!

  10. Oh wow, next time I am at the airport i will look out for this product... i like this brand so much, but its not sold locally.

  11. I love the packaging with all those bananas on it!! I’ll have to try this, I need a good body butter to recover from the winter!

  12. what a cute banana packaging! The product itself also seems nice...worthy of a try.

  13. I love anything banana-scented so I'm 100% going to check this out! Glad you're loving it :)

  14. I don't like eating bananas (unless it's banana bread) but I love the scent though. Gotta check this out, Kim!

  15. It sounds wonderful! My daughter (obsessed with bananas!) would also adore this!


a cupcake for your thoughts!
