My Eight Bars of Kiss-My-Face Natural Soap

Kiss My Face Olive Oil Unscented Bar Soap

Months ago, I decided to upgrade my soap from Lever 2000 which rates as a moderate hazard ~ 4 on the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep website.  I found that the Kiss My Face Olive Oil soap which is a ‘real old-fashioned soap’ has the lowest hazard rating of zero.  So, I decided to upgrade my soap.

Now, because I am a cheapskate I decided to buy the 8 pack to get the best price per bar.  Which seemed like a bright idea until they arrived and realized ‘unscented’ meant that they didn’t add any extra fragrance oils to them.  However, they had a slightly off-putting olive oil derived odor. 

Anyways, long story short (too late) I decided that I would use all of the bars (left after I donated two of them and gave one to my mom) to give them the old college try.  I like knowing that I am using pure soap and I like the rich way that pure soap forms a lather.  However, I really do need something that I also enjoy the smell of (or can’t smell at all).

So, I would still recommend this soap to a friend, I feel good about using a product that has a risk rating in line with plain water.  My only caveat is that I would suggest they buy only one bar to try. 

The next soap I will be trying is Dr. Bronners Magic soap in Peppermint.

    I have been using Kiss My Face Soap since the 80’s. The odor does not bother me, and my skin is residue-free.

      That’s awesome Dee – well your skin is beautiful! It is rated very highly on, most reviewers don’t mind the olive scent or like it. Hope you are doing well.

    Hey! I don’t find the scent offensive at all! As Dee comments above, the soap leaves her face residue-free – and Dee has the prettiest, smoothest, and most elastic skin – it almost glows – so I embarrass her by telling her.

    I had a landlady from Hungary once who made her own soap – took a couple of days. She used lye and mixed it up in either a washing tub or her washing machine. For every batch she made, I was gifted a couple of bars which I kept in a drawer for use at some LATER time. I think that a lot of women made soap from lye. She also hung garlic around her doors and windows and could grow the most amazing roses I’ve ever seen.

    A hint for gardeners? Don’t buy the enzymes, the pearlite, etc. Make your cutting as you should – (pay attention to the nodes and leaf formations) – Then simply make a pencil sized hole in the ground, stick in the stem, and put a mason jar upside down over it – this keeps the cutting warm (in fall and spring), lets the sun get to, and recycles the moisture. Now you have a new rooted plant – no effort! You could use any jar – so recycle your glass jars for cuttings.

    I don’t remember seeing these jars out in the winter –
