I have used Kiss My Face Unscented on and off for years. I’m concerned as I can rarely find it in stores nor online often these days.. am wondering if it is being discontinued. ????
I first tried KMF unscented because it was listed on a skin care forum for people with allergies to coconut, fragrance, nuts and seeds. There are almost no cleansers that fit this criteria. This soap is devoid of all my allergens, and is a godsend for that purpose!!!!
This soap is a big, solid, green bar. It smells like pure olive soap. (Some reviewers below didn’t care for the smell. While there is a scented version of KMF, this odor is NORMAL for an olive oil based soap. The odor does not stay on the skin. It’s not an unpleasant smell.).
This soap does not not lather much (normal for olive soap) and does not have the slip/emolumentsy (normal) to use shave your legs. Again, this is an olive-based soap w/o coconut—this soap embodies exactly what a true olive-Castille soap is. For those of us that are severely allergic to those other emollient/ fragrant/ slippage ingredients, this is a Godsend!!
This soap cleanses my face and body very well. It rinses easily, cleans fully, and lasts a long time if kept on a dry soap dish. It removes any water-based makeup I wear, but it’s not designed to be a makeup remover. On makeup days, I wash my face with this after I remove my makeup with jojoba oil (organic). This soap can be drying (and I have oily skin). During humid days drying isn’t a problem.. but during dry winters (or in arid climates) a moisturizer would be needed afterward.
This gem does—and is—exactly what an olive Castille soap is supposed to do/be! I am even able to make my own allergen-free shampoo with it! (Many of us with severe allergies do this.). As it is suddenly hard to find, I’m purchasing as many bars as I can find.
I still like the emolliency and slip of some of my other soaps/cleansers.. but they contain small amounts of allergens than my body can no longer tolerate. I fully understand why some reviewers prefer other soaps with rich lather and are so emollient you can shave your legs.. you have other options you are able to enjoy and use without consequence.
I highly recommend Kiss My Face Fragrance Free Soap for everyone who has sensitive or highly allergic skin.
