“A core element of our mission is having a 360 degree view of how our products… and everything it takes to get them to you… affect our planet.” The fact that the Kiss My Face guys incorporated this perspective into their mission statement makes me even more wild about their products.
What’s to like about Kiss My Face:
- They do not test on animals and do not use animal ingredients
- They use sustainable, plant-based ingredients that are gentle on us and on the planet
- They use post-consumer recycled materials for packaging, as well as for any displays and brochures
- They’re not only eco-friendly — they’re also economically friendly. Great products and prices that will fit the budget.
Kiss My Face makes soaps, shower gels, toothpaste, lip balm and lip gloss, shave cream, deodorants, moisturizers, hair shampoos and conditioners, organic facial care and sun care. They also have Kiss My Face for Kids – a line of soaps, shampoos, suncare, and toothpaste especially for the little ones — I’ll be stocking up for the next time my almost 4 year-old nephew comes to visit! So cute (the products… and my nephew Nicholas)!
My personal faves:
- Liquid Moisture Soaps
I use these pump-soaps for the bathroom at my yoga studio and also have used them in my home. The pear scent is really nice, and I’m happy to report that KMF is also making their soaps paraben-free now. In my DC apartment, I bought the “fragrance-free” for both the bathroom and kitchen sink areas. (about $6.00 each). For those of you who like bar soaps, try the Olive Oil Bar Soap ($2.99).
- Organic Moisturizers (for the body)
“Almost Butter”– A combination of certified organic jojoba oil, olive oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter.
“C’s the Day”– Ester C has anti-oxidant, anti-aging properties and stimulates collagen production; almond oil and jojoba oil make your skin super-soft!
*both moisturizers are just $10.95 each!
- Tinted Facial Moisturizer
Tinted moisturizers are awesome! Light enough not to feel greasy or heavy. Perfect for daytime, when I just need to hydrate my skin and even out my color a bit. KMF’s tinted moisturizers are inexpensive ($9.99) and the “Sisal” shade matches my complexion perfectly.
- Trial Sizes
I LOVE that KMF makes so many trial sizes of their products! First of all, it makes it so much easier for shoppers who are just starting to make the switch to cruelty-free alternatives. There are so many products out there — buying trial sizes is a good way to figure out what works best for you (especially if, like me, you have sensitive skin or allergies); and, at a little over a dollar each, trial sizes also are an inexpensive way to try new things. Second, the trial sizes are perfect for traveling, whether it’s a weekend conference trip, a family vacation, or a quick overnight to Vegas to catch a show.
