REVIEW: The Body Shop Banana Shampoo And Conditioner

I have never ever liked to eat bananas... Never! My dad swears by them but he could never get me to eat them but the day I laid my eyes on the TBS Banana shampoo and conditioner, I am seeing bananas in a totally different light... I might even venture into buying a dozen when I go fruits shopping the next time... Ha ha!

I have severely dry and frizzy hair and yes you may call them damaged as well, I will not take offense to it :P But they have been tamed to quite an extent when I started using the TBS RainForest Shampoo and Conditioner duo... I was really happy with it until I smelled the Banana Shampoo on one of my impromptu visits to TBS. It was love at first smell. Literally! I didn't buy it then cause I wanted to first finish my RainForest range and well needless to say, the day it got over, I rushed to TBS and got me these beauties :)

The Banana shampoo and conditioner look similar with a slight difference in their consistencies. They both look like freshly made banana shake and smell like a banana flavored bubblegum. There is just no way that you will not like the fragrance. Its just so glorious.

Shampoo wise, its a great mild shampoo and really really tames my frizz and makes my hair all soft and smooth. The day I started using this shampoo and conditioner duo, I haven't had to "flat-iron" my hair... My hair as is looks so smooth... And ladies mind you, it's the monsoons with Pune receiving rains like never before!

Price wise, it is one of the more reasonable products from TBS and hence I have nothing to complain about :P

Oooohhsss And Aaaahhhhsss!!!
1. It smells heavenly.
2. It leaves ones hair really soft and smooth
3. It even tames frizz (during the monsoons even)
4. One of the cheaper products of TBS (Touchwood)
5. Bottles are made out of 100% recycled plastic
6. Washes off easily and doesn't leave any residue on the scalp
7. HG shampoo and conditioner material.

 None that I can think of.

It costs INR 515/- each for the shampoo and the conditioner.

Yes! I think I have finally found my HG shampoo and conditioner duo!

Would I Recommend?
Definitely! If you are struggling with rough and frizzy hair, then this is the shampoo for you my firend :) If you are environmentally conscious then you would love to know the fact that the shampoo and conditioner bottles are made out of 100% recycled plastic.

Overall Rating:


  1. Hey, I also have frizzy, rough hair, and oily scalp... which do you think is the best range fro me: banana or rainforest?
    you review was quite convincing!

    1. hmmmm you could surely give this a shot though these aren't SLS free like the Rainforest Range is...

  2. Sounds nice..Is this SLS free too like the Rainforest Range ?

  3. seems like a very gud product!!!! am getting it!!!thanks suma!!!

  4. i want to try it for the long time now but then its not SLS free and thats what stops me because they feel nice on hair but in long run they do harm to hair - for my hair, its the case..u know any SLS free shampoo other than Rainforest?

    1. forest essentails! its sls free! that i what the store manager told me!

  5. I have the banana conditioner and I think its too light for me... I have a normal scalp that has dandruff, and gets greasy in 1.5 days, and hair dryer than a broom! I use TBS ginger shampoo and banana conditioner... I suppose the ginger shampoo is drying... I should try banana with some other shampoo probably....

  6. How about cucumber instead of banana. I heard that banana helps only to avoid dark circles where cucumber makes your skin soft.

  7. I picked this up on your reco Suma and loving it. My frizz ball hair are so much softer and shiny :D

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
