A Review of the Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream

Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream

The Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream is the latest product by Glow Recipe, a Korean brand that makes fruit-themed skincare. Glow Recipe launched their line in 2017 with the Glow Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser and the now cult-favourite Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. Later they introduced avocado and pineapple into the range with the Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask in 2018 and Pineapple-C Bright Serum in 2019. Now their newest product released in 2020 contains banana!

Using the Product

I found the product to be very gentle and soothing and would recommend it to someone who has dry, red or sensitive skin. The cream smells strongly of fresh banana but the smell fades quickly after it has been applied. The texture of the cream is bouncy and gel like and I found it was very cooling and absorbed quickly into my skin.

Compared to other moisturisers I use this is not a thick cream. I feel it would be better used in the summertime than the winter when your skin needs a bit more protection from the cold. Since it is not thick and heavy it does not leave any oily residue making it a good base for makeup.

The Ingredients

The Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream contains not only banana, but chia seed, magnesium, turmeric, and cica (a green that’s both eaten and commonly used as a medicinal herb in Asia to help heal wounds).

If you have a sensitivity to coconut then this product might not be for you since coconut is high up in the list of ingredients.

Like with all other Glow Recipe products the Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream is cruelty-free.

The Packaging and Sustainabilty

With the packaging for the Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream the only thing I would change is the shape of the jar. It is wider at the bottom and narrow at the top making it more difficult to get the product out once you are coming to the end.

It is important to me when reviewing products not only to check that the company does not test on animals, but also that the brand is eco-friendly and working to reduce their carbon footprint.

The glass jars that Glow Recipe products come in are made with 20% recycled glass and are 100% recyclable. (You just need to make sure you wash out the inside of the jar before putting it in the recycling.)

This company always uses glass packaging when possible (except when it’s a safety concern, like with their travel-friendly and cleanser products). Their cardboard packaging is made with a blend of PEFC-certified recycled paper (from sustainable sources), and is free of acids and heavy metals.

I have written another post on the effect the beauty industry is having on the environment where I list other eco-friendly brands that I recommend.

My verdict

Overall I would recommend this product. It is a lovely moisturiser and would also make a nice gift for someone as it comes in a luxurious looking package and feels like a premium product. I ordered mine for £36 from Cult Beauty. If you have tried the product yourself I would love to know your thoughts so please leave a comment below.

    This seems like a cool product I love that sustainability has been thought of and glass really does make anything feel more luxurious no matter if it’s recycled or not I mean not sure why there is an obsession with plastic pots of products when if your gonna be paying money for a luxury item then may as well not look all plasticy.
