Ingredient of the Week: Kiss My Face


One of the biggest concerns I have when it comes to my skin, skin care regimen and cosmetic decision-making is UV protection. Not only does the sun quicken the aging process, but it causes hyperpigmentation, among other fun and noticeable damaging effects. Sure my mineral makeup has SPF 15 but that's not good enough, at least for me. So … the search for a good sunscreen that offers UVA and UVB protection, doesn't cake my face white, doesn't flake, smells good, is void of parabens and actually works has been my mission.

Enter center stage: Kiss My Face.

Kiss My Face has several sun care products; but the two that stole my heart are its Natural Mineral Sunscreen formula and its Face Factor. First, they blend in clear. No white film, no flaking—nada. Second, they both offer either broad spectrum or UVA/UVB protection, and are water resistant. 

Its Natural Mineral Sunscreen is formulated with Hydresia® (from Botaneco), an oleosome from safflower that not only meets FDA's broad-spectrum requirements, but it improves moisture. Face Factor not only provides SPF 30, but it packed with antioxidants—green tea and licorice extracts; anti-aging peptides to help reduce wrinkles; linoleic acid to help decrease sensitivity to sunscreens; and hyaluronic acid, (HA) aloe and cucumber extract to hydrate.

If that isn't enough, these products are biodegradable; gluten-, paraben-, phthalate- and SLS-free; vegan friendly; and are not tested on animals.

Seriously, how could I not love them?
