The TonyMoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk is a product I’ve always wanted to try, but for some reason, I just never got round to purchasing it. I love banana scented beauty products, so the idea of a banana hand cream was totally something I needed to finally try.
“Looking for an ultra-moisturizing hand cream that smells delicious and also puts a smile on your face? Look no further than our banana hand milk for a hydrating lotion that smells like freshly baked banana bread!
This quick-absorbing hand milk is loaded with Shea Butter and Coconut Oil for intense hydration, protection, and quick absorption leaving hands silky smooth and sweet.”
The TonyMoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk is definitely packaged to be a beauty gimmick. With the hand cream being contained within a yellow, banana shaped plastic tube. It does look very cute, and pretty authentic for a faux banana, and the tube is squishy, so you can squeeze the hand cream out easily.
For a hand cream, the TonyMoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk is expensive. It’s £9 for 45ml, and I have to be honest, I was pretty surprised when my order arrived, and I saw how small the tube was.
The cream is an off white colour, and when you first massage it into your hands, it smells incredible. It smells absolutely identical to foam banana sweets, however the scent fades extremely quick. The banana scent dissipates within five minutes, and you’re then left with a generic sweet scent.
I’ve never tried a hand cream which has such a quick to fade scent, and it’s really disappointing as it smells so, so good once first applied. It doesn’t smell bad once the banana scent has gone, but it doesn’t smell anything special.
You also need a lot of product each time, with maybe 3-4 squeezes of the tube for just one decent application of the hand cream to the front and backs of my hands. So this tiny 45ml tube isn’t going to last longer at all.
Not only is the TonyMoly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk disappointing in terms of scent, volume of product and how much product is needed per application, it’s also quite greasy. You can feel the tackiness for up to an hour post application, and that’s a big fail for me.
I love a deeply hydrating hand cream, but I don’t want to have greasy hands, and I can’t help thinking, for £9, you could get some amazing hand creams from the drugstore, which will be better quality, will last longer too.
