    Promising review: "It's exactly what I was looking for! As soon as I opened the package it was delivered in I could smell the banana scent. The lotion rubs right in without leaving my hands oily. The adorable banana container makes me smile every time I take it out. The banana smell isn’t heavy once you put it on, so you don’t need to worry about an overpowering scent. Even though it’s a small container, it doesn’t come flooding out like with lots of other lotions, leaving you with too much in your hands. This lets you control exactly how much you want to dispense so you aren’t wasting product." —Kristana

    I use this and absolutely love how refreshed and healthy my skin feels afterward. It also doesn't feel thirsty or starved for nutrients after; with consistent use, I also break out less and my skin naturally looks brighter and dewier.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are legit. I use one every night, it has been week one and my skin has never looked better! I haven’t had the confidence to step out without foundation in a while. After using these sheet masks consistently, I actually want to go out without foundation. My skin feels smooth, it looks soft, clear, bright, and glows! Not only does it work on me but my mom has been using them with me and there has been obvious improvement in her skin texture. After washing my face at night, I slap one of these babies on for 30 minutes and remove the sheet. Massage the extra essence into my skin and neck and I wake up with dewy, soft, supple, and glowing skin. My skin stays moisturized all day. I can’t live without these now. The price is so worth it for the results." —Amy
