Can Ultrasound Improve the Look of Skin?

I'll be honest, I was not very familiar with the world of cosmetic ultrasound treatments when I decided to try the Mira-Skin Ultrasound device. Upon doing my research, I learned that ultrasound is a non-surgical/non-invasive treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultrasound uses the body's Read more

3 Myths About Using Toner

Toner is one of the biggest misunderstood skin care products out there. And to be honest, at one point when I was younger, I also believed some of these myths. What about you? 1. Toner is a cleanser. This one bugs me the most. I've read blogger reviews where the person clearly Read more

Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar Soap Reviews

kiss-my-face-olive-oil-bar-soapI’ve tried a few Kiss My Face products before and have had nothing but positive beauty experiences with all of them so I had very high expectations when I decided to give the Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar Soap a try and once again Kiss My Face did not disappoint.

My skin not only tends to be on the dry side, but is also pretty sensitive and gets very easily irritated so I am very particular about the products I use on my skin.  If something even slightly irritates my skin after the first use there is a pretty good chance I will not be using it again.  That said, I wanted to give the Kiss My Face Olive Oil Bar Soap a try because their products have never irritated my skin and I needed a cleanser with some extra moisturization.  The only ingredients in the Olive Oil Bar Soap are Saponified Olive Oil, Water and Sodium Chloride and is created without animal ingredients, artificial colors, unnecessary chemicals or animal testing. The Bar Soap has a really light fresh scent and felt very gentle on my skin.  After rinsing, my skin did not have that tight, dry feeling that it usually has with most soaps.

Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deodorant Review

Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Deodorant review

An essential part of any summer body care routine is a deodorant that really works.  With climbing temps, tons of outdoor activities and tank tops, a deodorant that goes on clear, but effectively fights odor all day is an absolute must.

For summer, I also prefer a deodorant with a very light to no scent; I just don’t like anything too sweet smelling when it’s hot out…for me it just gets nauseating. After reading about the potential awful side effects with a majority of deodorants, I’ve been itching to try a natural deodorant, but have been somewhat hesitant for fear of smelling like an onion.  But I figured  there was no time like the present to give a natural, fragrance free deodorant a try.
