Yes, it does smell as good as it sounds and it’s super easy to make with only three ingredients; banana, good quality cocoa and sugar!
It refreshes, softens and exfoliates your face and there’s nothing better than using all natural ingredients!
Simply mash a banana, and blend with a teaspoon of sugar and cocoa!
Handy tip: I cover my mixture with cling-film and leave in the fridge for a few hours to thicken before applying, it’s also quite soothing when cold.
Apply the mixture to your face and leave on for 15-20 minutes before rinsing.

Sugar! Bad for your health but great for your face, sugar is a natural exfoliant, that will help brighten up any dull complexion, it goes without saying that the more natural the better, but if I don’t have any brown sugar to hand, white will do near-enough the same job.
