Kiss My Face Sun Care and Kids Line Review

kissmyface_logo
At Kiss My Face, we believe that nature creates the best ingredients. We believe that it’s our job to combine these natural and organic ingredients in body care formulations that are potent and effective to make you look good and feel good. We strive to bring you the best nature has to offer—never at the expense of our planet, employees or values—but with honesty, humor and style.”

I had asked to review some of the great products from Kiss My Face and was so surprised when they sent me their whole line of Kids Products along with their Suncare line! This review has been a long time coming since I wanted to personally test out every product they had generously sent me.

First, let’s talk about the Kids Line! I’d like to mention the important things first so you should know that each of their products are free of artificial colors, fragrances, parabens and SLS. Kiss my Face uses natural ingredients such as Organic Green Tea Extract to protect against sun damage, Nettle Extract to stimulate hair growth and improve the condition of the scalp and Tea Tree Oil to kill germs. When it comes down to being environmentally smart, Kiss my Face has it down to an art! Their packaging is even made of recycled materials!kiss_my_face_sun

These products look as well as smell divine! The product packing for the kids line features endangered species from Tigers, Monkeys, and even Penguins. The special packaging on each kid product sheds light on several different endangered species and provides interesting facts on each animal spotlighted. Kiss My Face even has a special website that can be found HERE just for kids. This website features videos as well as interactive coloring sheets for your children to enjoy!

I didn’t try out all the kids products because my little one is still to young to be using toothpaste but I did try out all the others if not on my daughter,  on myself. Can you blame this Mom for wanting to smell just as good as her daughter does with the divine orange & cream smell each of many of the products were made up of?

I tried out the bubble wash which smelled great but needed to be more bubbly. My daughter doesn’t have too much hair yet, so I tried out the de-tangler on my own wet/dry hair and it worked wonderfully! The foaming hand wash made washing lots of fun as well as the foaming shampoo & body wash. The shampoo & conditioner combo worked great and left my daughters hair super soft, shiny, and smelling great. The whale of a soap was almost to cute for me to even want to try out but lathered great and left little hands smelling so good.

I also tried the lip balm out on my daughter and think it’s great that these are colorless, go on smooth, and smell yummy while protecting and keeping lips soft and smooth.  I think these are a great alternative to all those yucky smelling and glitter filled ones in most stores for little girls…oh, and these are great for boys too!kissmyface2

If you are not big into scented things, though these scents aren’t to sweet or overbearing, Kiss My Face will be adding non-scented products very soon.

I also got to review several products from their sun care line.  I’m quite impressed with all of these products as well! Each of these products are paraben free. Of course, I didn’t know what paraben was, so I I did some research and found out that it’s a chemical that can cause cancer, and it can even mimic estrogen . How scary! My favorite product might be the Hot Spot Stick! This stick is great to apply to your nose, lips, cheeks, and ears… all places that I most commonly get burned at when out in the sun. I can even use this product on my 13 months old daughter!

I tried out the Instant Sunless Tanner to try to rid my body of the whiteness I so inhabited from staying indoors so much in Oregon! This product did not dissapoint! I will say make sure you apply this evenly or you’ll end up with a not so good looking tan.

A few of the  other products I was sent contain citronella, which I haven’t had the chance to try out.  I imagine this product will be a great Deet substitute for fighting off unwanted pest! I’ll definately have to bring it along and test when we go hiking out of the national parks here!

Overall Thoughts:

I appreciate the products created by Kiss My Face for kids and adults . I really love their kids line and I think it’s important to be aware and teach our kids as well about being more natural in our day to day lifestyles. These products, I defiantly intend to use for a good long while and I recommend them for adults and children alike!

Body Systems Natural Body Butter Review

brown-logo

I was recently given the opportunity to try out my my very first body butter by 

Body Systems. I wasn’t sure what to expect and imagined something with the consistency of butter! The consistency to my surprise was smooth and creamy, overall very easy to apply! Though the cocoa butter fragrance wasn’t for me, I enjoyed how this product left my skin feeling soft, silky, and hydrated. cocoa-butter-banner-copy

Cocoa butter has been called the ultimate moisturizer, and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. High in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, it is one of the most stable, highly concentrated natural fats available, and melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin.

What makes Body Systems’ Body Butters unique is that their products are free of any chemicals including Parabens, Phthalates, or Petro-Chemicals, are never tested on animals, contain no fillers and are perfect for doing Double, Triple or even Quadruple Duty!

Geneva Springs

gslogomain2

Geneva Springs has wonderful skin care products! These products are 100% made in the USA and locally produced in Bear Lake County, Idaho. The Dairy Maid Skin Cream products were originally called “Relief Society Healing Hand Cream” and it was created to keep the rough cracked hands of those working on farm nice and soft. Lucy Tueller has since dubbed the recipe from the original using milder ingredients, so as too make the hand cream gentler. Customers who tend to use their hands a lot like carpenters, mechanics, gardeners and others have found this gs-dairymade-logo-color-smallproduct wonderful. Dairy Maid Skin cream from Geneva Springs is known to relieve symptoms associated with, eczema, discoloration, and dry, cracked hands, feet and elbows. You can see for yourself under the testimonial section on their site.

Geneva Springs carries more than the great skin cream that I’ve been raving about; they also have Mrs. Tulips Lip Balm regular and slim stick, Bath Salts, Glycerin and Bees work soaps! Each of these products uses real essential oils and the finest of ingredients to ensure only the best for their customers. I love the huge array of fragrances that they offer from sweet pea to raspberry dessert!

I was given the opportunity to try some of these great products out and I am really glad about it! I was sent Lavender Baby Powder Skin Cream, Lavender Bath Salt, Sweet Pea Skin Cream, Lavender soap, and Mrs. Tulips lip balm.

The Skin cream is everything it says it is. I don’t think my hands and feet have ever been so soft! The smell isn’t over powering and literally it’s so creamy that if I didn’t know better I would want to eat it. You don’t have to use much as a little goes a long way.

The lip balm works wonderfully too. I usually have pretty dry lips but when using this lip balm, my lips have stayed a lot moister!

The bath salts are a lot of fun. I feel pretty pampered when anything special goes into my bath and the lavender soap left me smelling great all evening.

I would defiantly recommend Geneva’s Springs products to everyone I know. Be sure to check out my giveaway as Lucy has offered to give away a wonderful gift set from Geneva Springs ! The prize is a wonderful gift bag with a 4 oz cream, 4 oz bath salt, 4 oz soap, and .15 oz lip balm of the reader’s choice. (Retail Value: approx. $34.00).
