HAPPY WEEKEND BEAUTIFUL,
I hope you’re doing fab. Glow Recipe is making waves with their new skincare releases and I wanted to share my thoughts on their new Banana Souffle Moisture Cream! Lately there seems to be an influx of food oriented skincare on the market and this cream is no different. There’s something so fun about a delicious skincare experience, especially if you’re into scented products. The Glow Recipe Banana Souffle Moisture Cream is their newest moisturizer to hit the market. Read on for my honest review.
GLOW RECIPE BANANA SOUFFLE MOISTURE CREAM
This cream is $50CAD for 1.69oz or 50ml, not a bad price point or volume of product from my experience. The product itself is a bright yellow (see below) and I do think Glow Recipe could have been just as successful with less colouring agents and a more natural appearance.
The Banana Souffle Moisture Cream has more of a ‘natural’ banana scent and isn’t sickly sweet like I was expecting (or secretly hoping for, reminiscent of their Watermelon line!!). The feel of the moisturizer is literally as if you’re rubbing a skincare version of a souffle or creme brulee on your face. Not too heavy, slightly whipped, yet still rich and emollient. It absorbs quickly with no heavy residue.
BANANA SOUFFLE FORMULATION:
This moisturizer is formulated with banana: a hydrating ingredient, magnesium: a calming ingredient for inflamed skin and an ingredient called ‘Centella Asiatica’: shown to nurture dry, irritated skin. Other ingredients include squalane (a super hydrator), banana water, tumeric root extract, chia seed extract, coconut fruit extract, marshmallow and basil. Any hard to pronounce agents are near the bottom of the list, as they belong!
OVERALL THOUGHTS ON THE GLOW RECIPE BANANA SOUFFLE MOISTURE CREAM:
Although the scent isn’t a yummy as I hoped from the brand and more on the natural side, I’m enjoying this moisturizer. As I write this I only have a tiny bit of my sample size left and it’s definitely on my radar for a repurchase. The ingredients list for this product is chock full of natural extracts and ingredients all the way through, with only few ingredients I can’t pronounce near the bottom. That’s what I personally prefer for my skincare choices these days- the cleaner the better. I do wish there was less of a striking YELLOW colour to this cream as it kind of looks like playdough at first.
Overall I’d give this moisturizer a 4/5. I like it a lot and I may purchase the full size, but it isn’t life-changing. The Banana Souffle Moisture Cream does the job and I enjoy the souffle feeling of it on my skin. I do feel Glow Recipe could’ve also done with less colourants and maybe improved the scent instead. Get it here.
