REVIEW: Bubblesandsqueek Creamy Banana and Oats Soap

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Hello beauties!! I like eating bananas as they are high in potassium and using banana in a soap sounds pretty intriguing, right? Today I will be reviewing a soap that contains real bananas, it's called Creamy Banana Soap by the house of Bubblesandsqueek. Let's see how the soap fared for me:

About the product:

Made with Fresh banana puree which hydrates, Soothes, softens, and rejuvenates the complexion. Ground oats helps exfoliate to remove dry and dead skin. Scented with sweet fragrance of peaches and melon.

Price: INR 130 for 100 gm
Shelf Life: 6 months from the date of manufacturing however the date of manufacturing is missing.
Available: Here
Ingredients: Saponified oils of olive coconut, castor, palm oil, pureed bananas and fragrance oil.

My Experience:

Creamy Banana and Oats Soap comes packaged in a cling wrap and bears a label which bears the product name, brand name and coordinates. The packaging doesn't mention important details like ingredients, shelf life, date of mfg, price etc. The soap smells lovely with wafting notes of peach and melon. The soap is brown in colour and  has a slight coarse texture due to presence of oats. I cut the soap into two halves and used it regularly for 10 days, the soap despite being handmade doesn't melt easily which is great! However, whilst using handmade soap always make sure that it's dried between uses to make it last long.

The soap contains pureed bananas which helps in lightening dark spots, hydrating the skin and treating acne. Humble banana is high in potassium, vitamin A, zinc etc. I have dry skin and this soap indeed hydrates the skin! Though the hydration that the soap provided is not adequate for winters but in summers when our skin gets oily this soap would provide adequate hydration, The soap has not robbed my skin off it's natural oils even if it was not adequately moisturising for winters. The oats in the soap do render mild exfoliation effect without being harsh on the skin. Oats are known for their exfoliating properties and hydrating qualities. The soap produces mild lather and rinses easily without feeling slippery on the skin. My skin feels clean and soft post bath.

Overall, Bubblesandsqueek Creamy Banana and Oats Soap does what it claims. It cleans, softens, hydrates and gently exfoliates the skin without containing harsh chemicals.

Will I recommend: Of course I will!


  • Contains goodness of oats and banana
  • Cruelty free, handmade and natural
  • Smells lovely 
  • Priced reasonably for a handmade soap
  • Cleans, softens the skin effectively
  • Super mild on the skin. Caused no irritation or breakout.
  • Availability - not a con for me
  • Wish the packaging would contain all the important details like ingredients, shelf life etc.
