The Body Shop Banana Bodycare Range!

18th July 2018

Hey everyone!

I feel like I review quite a few things from The Body Shop on here. I absolutely adore their products though and it seems like you all do, too! I’ve reviewed the banana hair care range which you can find here and it’s actually one of my most viewed posts! Since a banana body care range has surfaced this Summer, I just had to give it a go as I’m a complete sucker for banana. Both the taste and the smell of it, I just can’t get enough of. As I have far too many body butters that I do not use, I only wanted to try the yoghurt and shower cream from this range. I already have the mango body yoghurt too so it’ll be interesting to see how they compare.

Like with the Sophdoesnails x Revolution palette I recently reviewed, my lovely boyfriend Jake bought these products for me. I had to give him yet another shout out as I feel like he has been spoiling me recently and i’m all for showing that appreciation. After lusting over this banana range for quite a while, he turned up at my house when I was having a bad day with my health. Banana products in tow aswell as their new “Himalayan Charcoal Facial Soap” (which I am SO excited to try as I love the mask). Aswell as these, he got me the most gorgeous bunch of sunflowers and roses, a box of chocolates from M&S and the cutest card. I am a very lucky lady so thank you Jake for making this post (and a few others…) possible.

A Litte Extra Information About The Range

So, you’ll be happy to know that the entirety of The Body Shop banana range is 100% vegan! It also contains lovely Community Trade organic banana puree sourced from Ecuador. The puree is also said to be made from bananas that don’t pass the industry test, so it helps to reduce waste. Unfortunately for those of you who like the sound of this range, it does state that it’s special edition. It’s a range created for Summer so it probably won’t be on the shelves much longer. Although saying this, if you do adore it, you’ll probably be able to stock up in their end of Summer sale for cheaper if they’re not continuing the range. The packaging is pink and yellow with cute little bananas and sayings on to give it a playful spin.

So, what did I think of the products?

The Body Shop Banana Yogurt // £8.50 for 200ml

The body yogurts are a relatively new addition to The Body Shop’s shelves anyway. Having one released in a brand new range so soon after really must show just how well they’ve been selling! On first impression of opening the pot, I must say I didn’t think this one was going to be for someone with a sensitive nose. It is an incredibly strong scent! Even as someone who adores the smell of banana and this range, it can be a little too much. Saying that, once applied to the skin it does really settle down. The scent is still noticeably there but nowhere near as poignant.

The yogurt also has organic almond milk in which means it melts so gorgeously into the skin and is very quick to dry. There’s no residue left behind, only silky skin. I really adore using the body yogurts on freshly shaved legs too as they moisturise the skin really well without making it feel clogged up. I’d say the scent sticks around for around 4 hours gradually fading which is pretty good for a gel moisturiser. The hydration levels I’d say are light to medium so perfect for every day application. There’s honestly nothing about this product that I dislike! The formula, scent and benefits are perfect for me and my skin.

The Body Shop Banana Shower Cream // £6 for 250ml

This is probably the thickest shower cream I’ve ever tried from The Body Shop! They sell a few others all year round like the Shea and Coconut but neither are as creamy as this. I’d say it’s more similar in texture to the shower cream in the Halloween range they produced in 2017, “Vanilla Pumpkin”. Vanilla Pumpkin was also incredibly gorgeous and I REALLY hope it makes a re-appearance this year! Anyway, the shower cream is very softening, easy to lather and strong in its scent. It also leaves as much of a scent behind in the bathroom as the haircare products do, which I was pleased about.

Although the scent of the actual product is strong, I wouldn’t say it left that much of it behind on the skin. It’s noticeable but only slightly and for a short while. That is something I would change about the product as I would love for it to leave more of a scent for the days I don’t fancy applying the yogurt, too. Other than that it’s a gorgeous product to use in the shower and you can also use The Body Shops shower gels and creams as bath foams so I will definitely be trying that with it soon.

Overall, I am completely in love with The Body Shop banana range. From the body care to the hair care, I love it ALL. I would happily use all of these products day in day out but unfortunately they’re a little pricey for me to buy consistently. They are however, an incredible treat for yourself and your skin/hair.

What’s your favourite product from The Body Shop? Have you tried anything from The Body Shop banana range yet?

  1. My mom mentioned that the body shop brought out a banana range and now i’ve read this i want to try it so so bad!!

  2. Oooh these sound lovely – deffo want to give the yoghurt a go! And my all time fave range is the pomegranate one – super sweet and berry like! Also love the sound of that vanilla & pumpkin one – two of my fave smells in one! ?❤️❤️

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Ooh I don’t think they’ve done pomegranate for years now! They definitely didn’t do it when I worked there and we didn’t have any of it in the sale either! Omg its gorgeous Gaby, it’s coming back this Halloween so get yourself some!! Xx

  3. Nora says:

    I’m so glad it’s vegan. I’m trying to buy more cruelty-free products and I’m so happy I found your blog to get inspired by beauty in general. It seems like a good product. Great post ?

    My favourite sent from The Body Shop is the Apple scent, it might be just a Christmas special however? Last year they did a Spicy Apple which I did not like though:( I LOVE the smell of Banana, but I like the smell of artificial banana, if you know what I mean. So before buying these I would have to go in and have a smell. They do look and sound really good! I would much prefer for a Shower Cream to have a long lasting smell than a Body Yogurt though, great review! xx

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It was in 2015! They have done spiced apple for the past 2 years but I preferred the glazed apple too ? definitely go and try it out because I can’t see how anyone could dislike the smell it’s so lovely! Xx

      • lifeofshar says:

        yes that was it! Glazed apple! It smells so good, I have still got products left haha! and ooo okay I will have a smell next time I go past The Body Shop in town! Thanks! xx

  5. Okay, firstly you and Jake’s relationship sounds absolutely adorable! Secondly, I’m now really intrigued about this range. I was curious to begin with, because I can’t imagine what banana scented products would smell like, but now that you’ve said the yoghurt is so strongly scented, I’m going to have to go and give it a sniff! So glad you enjoyed the range.

    I’ve been wanting to try out vegan products because regular ones aren’t really helping. Thank you for this post

  7. Aww your boyfriend is such a keeper! I love banana too and have been so intrigued by The Body Shop yoghurts but haven’t got one yet because I have so many butters! I love that they smell so strong though because I think it would be perfect for Summer day’s when I can’t be bothered to use perfume! Great review lovely!

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Isn’t he!? I’m a lucky lady ❤️ I barely ever use my butters so this was perfect for me! Oh gosh yes definitely, they just make your skin glow too! Thank you ☺️ x

  8. I seriously need to get my hands on this range! I love their banana shampoo & conditioner, I use that a lot so when I heard of this range I knew I had to get some, still not been near a store yet but hopefully soon. Your photos are absolutely stunning as well.

    OMG the packaging is so cute! And it’s great that it’s vegan!

  10. Valerie says:

    I can almost smell this post! Yum! Love that it’s vegan too.

  11. eviebraithwaite says:

    Ah I saw that they had released this banana range and I was so intrigued – banana is my favourtie fruit haha. The packaging and the colours are gorgeous, and I need to get my hands on these products asap if they’re only available this summer. Great review, thanks for sharing! x

  12. Those body yogurts sound so good in terms of texture but I hate everything banana, going to have to pop in and give the mango one a sniff because I feel like I’m missing out. Well done Jake for providing the goods for this post! But seriously, he sounds like the sweetest x


    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      You should deffo grab yourself a yoghurt in any scent as they’re so lovely! He is bloody brilliant, I’m a lucky lady! X

  13. The Preemie Mummy says:

    I love the body shop and I am so intrigued by this range. That Banana Body Yogurt looks incredible. 😀

  14. Looks so good! I must try! ?
    I love the body shop chamomile makeup remover in the tin, it literally removes everything so effortlessly & their vit E range is good too.

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It is gorgeous! I find the butter a tad too oily but I do love the chamomile remover in the blue bottle! X

  15. Alice says:

    I was so excited for you when I saw they’d released these products as I know how much you love the haircare in the banana scent! I went and had a smell of these the other day when I was browsing on my lunch time and I love how strong the smell is in the yoghurt. I definitely need to get me one of the yoghurts as they seem so much more lightweight than the butters. I’m so hoping they bring back Vanilla Pumpkin as well, definitely my favourite scent of theirs so far! The packaging is absolutely adorable, I love the vibrant pink x

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Ahh honestly I’d use it all day everyday! The yoghurt is bloody gorgeous and I’m already like half way through the pot ? oh it’s coming girl, I hope they do a yoghurt in it this year soo much! X

  16. Jade Marie says:
