Is Bangn Body worth the hype?

BANGN BODY - Firming Lotion Face & Body Moisturiser
I’m not usually one to buy into the hype, but... I bought into the hype. A few of my favourite influencers were sponsored by Bangn Body a few months ago, but it was a podcast with the brand’s founder that really pushed me over the edge. You may want to sit down for this one... apparently we lose ONE PERCENT of our skin’s elasticity per year after age 20?? My 22-year old skin is feeling pretty upset at the moment. So long story short, I purchased the product immediately afterwards and here is my review 🤗 THE PACKAGING - my online order arrived in a small, fully recyclable box, with a few Starburst lollies inside! The tube itself is a decent size (150mL), is made of recyclable aluminium and looks super cute next to my other skincare products. THE SCENT - it honestly smells like a piña colada (pineapple and coconut), which would be amazing for anyone missing summer holidays. 🌴 I personally found the scent to be a bit overbearing for my face (dry skin), and it gives me a little bit of redness for a few minutes after applying. It doesn’t irritate any other part of my body. THE APPLICATION - the product is really creamy and thick. It’s also easy to control the level of product you squeeze out, so you can experiment with how much you’d like to use. This product is multi-purpose, so you can really apply it wherever you’d like. I apply a thin layer to my face on nights that I’m not using a sleeping mask, and also on my butt to help with acne and cellulite. THE RESULTS - this gets rid of my butt acne overnight, which is amazing! I haven’t been using it frequently enough to know whether my cellulite is being impacted, but since my face gets irritated from the scent I might start to use it more primarily as a body lotion. I don’t have any major skin concerns on my face that I was looking to fix with this product, however it did leave me feeling hydrated for hours afterwards. THE PRICE - if you have skin concerns, I think it’s worth giving this a shot (unless you have sensitive skin that doesn’t usually like strong fragrance). But for someone like me, I feel like there would be cheaper alternatives for the same/similar results. OVERALL - depending on your skin type and goals, I think it’s worth doing a bit of research into firming lotions to see whether you’d like to try this one out. I don’t regret buying this product, but I probably won’t be repurchasing. Please let me know if you have tried this product, and what you thoght! 🚨 An issue I wanted to point out is that the reviews on the Bangn Body website (4.9 star average) are quite different to those on the Mecca website (3.9 star average). I’m not saying that Bangn Body is choosing not to include bad reviews, but it just looks a bit fishy when there is such a stark difference between the two rating systems.

Overhyped or great product?!? Bangn Body
BANGN BODY - Firming Lotion Face & Body Moisturiser I have been trialing this product now for a couple of months. The idea of a body and face lotion wasn’t appealing to me but it seemed to be getting good reviews everywhere on social media. So I followed the hype (don’t judge me, we all do it 😂). What to expect 📦 Fruity tropical scent Creamy and spreadable consistency A high retail price Things I loved 💛 The level of hydration it offered. I was skeptical that a lotion which worked for my body would suit my sometimes oily, combination skin but it did! I got a bit sunburnt on a trip and this lotion provided really nice relief as I was quite remote and couldn’t access any Aloe Vera or after sun cream. The packaging is great. I get the sense that I’m going to get every drop of product out Things that disappointed ⚠️ I definitely didn’t experience the ability to “say Cya to cellulite” or “so long to stretch marks” but let’s be honest, I don’t think that a cream has the ability to do that. Along the same lines, their marketing has definitely the array of gorgeous unattainable bodies. Which, in my opinion, sets an unrealistic view that this cream will change your body. To their credit there are a few plus size models scattered far and few between on their Insta posts. I only gave it 3 stars because I did like the product and probably will consider re-buying it but it is pretty expensive for what it is (they do some bundles though that will save you money). It’s a great moisturiser but won’t take away your cellulite. I love the idea of its dual purpose for body and face, if you have particularly oily skin, stick to using this on your face just at night.

I just bought another tube of this, here’s why
BANGN BODY - Firming Lotion Face & Body Moisturiser The yellow tube of goodness or whatever they call it. The before and after photos will tell you it heals stretch marks, reduces cellulite and cures cancer (ok I made that last one up). A brightening, hydrating, firming, tightening miracle cream. Does it work? Obviously it works wonders for some but my first impression was that it was okay. I mostly just put in on my face at night. My skin still felt a bit tight after applying but once it sunk in I felt hydrated. In the morning skin was soft and looked nice. Good but nothing radical. Then I got a pimple. Like one of those diabolical, volcano, has-roots-going-down-your-neck type pimples. Can’t go outside or even zoom chat hideous thing. I could see it coming. The skin over the head was tight and sore and the redness surrounding it was bigger than a 50 cent piece (if you can even remember what money looks like these days). So I cleaned the area and used this cream as a spot treatment twice a day and then all over the face at night. And no matter how much I wanted to I DID NOT TOUCH IT. And... nothing. No eruption. No pea-sized whitehead. Even the redness went away. 3 days later and I realised that this yellow tube is actually my saviour! Since my enlightenment I have applied it to all kinds of pimples. Face pimples, back pimples, chest pimples. Those weird leg pimples. And all either disappeared in a few days or significantly reduced. So excuse me while I go and increase my order to five tubes.

Say goodbye to bumpy skin!!
Say goodbye to bumpy skin!!
I’ve been using this duo for the past 2 weeks and the skin on the back of my legs & butt has never been more smooth! These are perfect for anyone who suffers from keratosis pilaris. The scrub is used 2-3x a week on dry skin and then washed off in the shower. Helps exfoliate the skin with a fine physical exfoliant but also includes glycolic and lactic acid to help brighten/smooth and help increase cell turnover. The particles are so fine this never causes any irritation on my skin. The only reason I am not giving the scrub 5 stars is because for the amount I use on my body the price seems kind of steep at 40$ CAD. This body cream is a DREAM. If you had to choose just one of these products I’d go with this. It has a rich creamy texture and has a natural AHA blend to help smooth out any bumpy textures but also gives amazing hydration. I noticed results after using this cream for only a few days! Will 100% repurchase this product. I sometimes will get a bit of acne on my butt/ behind my legs and this has helped clear it up!

HOW TO GET SMOOTH AS BUTTER. BODY CARE! Hi friends, I am going to go through my body routine that I have been LOVING lately. Here are the product break downs in the order I do it. FIRST AID BEAUTY KP BUMP ERASER $34 HOW: I apply this in the shower when my skin is a bit wet. Leave it on for about 2 minutes then scrub it off. WHAT: A scrub that contains lactic, glycolic acid, and pumice buffing beads which promotes skin cell turnover. WHO: ALL SKIN TYPES !! If you feel you have bumps and dryness or many stubborn ingrown hairs please give this a go. Game changer for sure! FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA SKINFIX RESURFACE+ AHA RENEWING CREAM $60 HOW: Generously apply to dry skin and leave on. (It will sting if you put it on right after you shave, but its bearable WHAT: AHA blend lotion, great for gently exfoliating the skin WHO: ALL SKIN TYPES - maybe sensitive. (Try it out because My friend who’s sensitive has no problems but everyones different.) If you have bumps on your skin from ingrown or keratosis pilaris. skinfix - Resurface+ AHA Renewing Cream NIVEA COCOA BUTTER DEEP CARE SERUM $8 (depends where) HOW: Apply on dry skin WHAT: soothing lotion that hydrates the skin and claim for 48hrs WHO: DRY TO VERY DRY skin- although you can still try it. For those who hate the feeling of THICK LOTION, this is great!!! This is my 4th bottle. NIVEA - Cocoa Butter In Shower Lotion This is my current body care routine and my skin has noticeably gotten smoother and I am seeing fewer ingrown hairs. Try this out and let me know your thoughts! 💗 *** also you don’t have to use the scrub and the lotion together, you can use just the cream if you need something extra gentle!

I’d rather get coal than Body Star. In fact, let’s cancel Christmas. TRULY - Body Star Perfecting Cream *product was gifted, but opinion is obviously my own This body cream by Truly (formerly known as Truly Organic *cough* FDA scandal *cough*) is supposed to “perfect” your skin (moisturize, hydrate, smooth). But, to be frank, you might as well use actual butter. It also has the audacity to claim it targets stretch marks and cellulite. It comes out in a thicc, creamy paste. If held in your hand for long enough (see photo) it starts to literally melt and slide, leaving a trail of oil. That should tell you how it sits on the skin - no matter how hard I rubbed it in, it would feel like I’m a buttered turkey about to be put into the oven. I don’t have terribly dry skin, and this product is not marketed as such, so this is my experience as a 22yo woman with normal skin. Body Star left me feeling greasy, and with a few random pimples on my butt and upper arms (those may have appeared coincidentally with my first use of the cream, but maybe not). Another HUGE pet peeve: this cream is advertised as targeting “cellulite, stretch marks and dehydrated skin”. No, this cream will not remove your old stretch marks, along with most other creams that claim to do so. I could not find the full list of ingredients online (why?!), but the two provided on the website (Cactus and Prickly Pear) do not have the power to reverse stretch marks, in my opinion as a non-professional bean. This cream is artificially colored butter with a sickly sweet scent and a hefty price tag ($28). Please do not buy this.

Hi! What a lovely texture right? I wish you could smells it. TRULY - Unicorn CBD Whipped Body Butter Key Ingredients: — acai berries have anti-aging properties that also help fight free radicals through antioxidants. This is great for all skin types! — matcha // matcha powder helps reduce inflammation and also gentle exfoliates (which I had no idea about). This is best for normal to redness prone skin! (Like mine - rosacea) — cbd promotes healthy skin, is relief from redness and irritation, and helps normalize the agents that make skin acne prone. Obviously this is good for all skin types, especially acne prone! Claims: — nourishing — hydrating — mostly organic — Fragrance is low on list of ingredients! My thoughts — I took a ton of photos of this texture before I dug in. How cute is that swirl! — I love the scent so much, just like candy — but the good candy, like the rainbow sour ribbons from candy shops. — this is very hydrating and calming, but takes a while to sink in. — the texture is thick, kind of frosting like consistency at first. — I don’t use this often, but I like using it on parts of my body that are irritated or inflamed, as it’s very calming and soothes my skin. — $35 for 6oz

This combo has been giving me the smoothest skin in all the right places. TMI, but the texture on my butt is not the smoothest. I sit on it all day, so it definitely could use some (a lot) TLC (no, not the drunk elephant kind. Well, maybe that would help too). Anyway, these two products have transformed my 🍑👍 (and my legs, butt most importantly my butt). First I use the scrub. I apply it on dry skin and massage in circular motions for about a minute. Full disclosure, the scrub, at least to me, feels very rough, so if you have rough skin, proceed with caution. After that I wash off the scrub and proceed to the next step, which is the cream. I’ve been really enjoying this one as well. Not only has it made my skin feel much smoother everywhere I’ve used it (shoulders, butt, legs) but it has also helped to control my body acne and some discolorations. It is also really hydrating, which is great in this coming winter 👍 . I’m really happy with how these two products have been working for me. They’ve made a noticeable difference in my skin in a very short time, something not many products are able to do. After this great experience, I’m excited to see how other @skinfixinc perform 👀

KP BUMP ERASER BODY SCRUB 10%
KP BUMP ERASER BODY SCRUB 10% AHA $26/8oz⁣ ⁣ - Claims to be a fast acting body scrub acting as a chemical peel and micro-dermabrasion treatment in one. Glycolic and Lactic Acids at a combined level of 10% help loosen skin’s top layer and decongest pores with Pumice Buffing Beads that whisk it all away⁣ - Claims to be allergy tested, safe for sensitive skin, and fragrance free⁣ - Absolutely love it! It’s a strong exfoliator but it is super gentle! My skin is amazingly soft and when paired with their first aid beauty repair cream, my body feels out of this world - I usually use it on my bum (not a sufferer of KP) but it works very well with removing the pores there just after the first use! Usually those pores come right back after couple hours of showers with regular body scrubs I’ve used in the past— but this little guy kept those away for days! Then it’s a reminder for me to use it again (I use it twice a week) I HAVE HIGH HOPES THIS WILL KEPT THEM AWAY FOR GOOD WITH LONG TERM USE 🙌🏻🙌🏻⁣ - The beads aren’t harsh on skin and can even be used on my sensitive skin without water for greater exfoliation 💖 another great thing is it’s affordable & fragrant free 🥰⁣
