We Tried It: Kiss My Face Moisturizing Coconut Hand Soap

Published:

Available at drug and grocery stores and most stores that sell soap; $6.49 for 9 ounces

The pitch: “This naturally nourishing hand soap combines plant based cleansers and natural botanical emollients for a “scent-sational” wash that leaves hands soft without worry of chapping or drying.”

The skinny: A hand soap is a hand soap is a hand soap, right? I usually pay more attention to the container (Will it look good on my vanity?) than the product it holds. So I was pleasantly surprised the first time I used Kiss My Face Moisturizing Coconut Hand Soap. I am not exaggerating when I say that I felt a difference right away in what this soap did for my skin. Besides feeling clean, my hands felt moisturized, thanks to a blend of coconut water, exotic botanicals, oils, butters and aloe. This stuff is a godsend for a hard-core gardener.

Another plus: The scent is one of my favorites. Coconut always makes me think of a day at the beach.

The container? Meh. Not my favorite. But I can always pour this fabulous soap into a prettier pump bottle!
