I bloody love skincare but there’s a certain lack of it on my blog that I think needs to change. Enter this review of the TonyMoly Magic Food Banana Sleeping Pack!
Obviously we’re going to talk about this. It’s a banana! An actual banana-shaped squeezy tube with a plastic lid and rubber bottle. I imagine this is a massive selling point for everyone like me who is sucked in by cute packaging. It doesn’t stand up because of the shape but I love pulling this out of my drawer or it still looks cute on a bedside table.
Being a Korean brand, the UK price varies quite a lot and it’s currently priced between £8-£16 depending on where you buy it. If you prefer to buy from official UK retailers like Beauty Bay, expect to pay the top end £15.50 but if you don’t mind waiting for your order, it’s more around the £8 mark on YesStyle.
The cream is very thick and feels quite sticky when first applied. I often have trouble with the squeezy tube and accidentally disperse too much product which is wasteful but I think that’s just me! This cream has a very strong scent like banana sweets which I find nostalgic but you may want to skip this one if you’re not a fan of that artificial banana smell.
This sleeping pack does the job of keeping my skin soft but it can look a little greasy the morning after using it because it’s so thick. I recently read that you’re supposed to wash it off your face in the morning which I hadn’t consciously been doing other than the usual toner or cleanser I might use so that might change my opinion of how greasy it is.
Overall, the banana sleeping pack is very moisturising but I can only use it a couple of times a week because of my skin type (combination with oily t-zone and prone to breakouts). I think if you have drier skin, you’ll probably love this but it’s just a little too heavy for me.
Have you tried this? x
