Product Review: Kiss My Face Active Enzyme Deodorant

A few weeks ago, I was browsing one of my local independently owned natural food stores and I came across this deodorant. I've been looking for a natural, cruelty free alternative to the deodorants that I had been using, so I decided to give it a try. I have been using it for two days now and I am ready to tell you the pros and cons.

  1. It clearly states on the back label that it is 100% vegan friendly (it's always great when you don't have to spend several minutes trying to decipher ingredients)!
  2. No aluminum
  3. No parabens
  4. No propylene glycol
  5. No artificial colors
  6. It has the wonderful, distinctive scent of Patchouli Essential Oil
  7. It's made in the USA.
  8. It's 100% biodegradable.
  9. Kiss My Face was founded and is owned by vegetarians.
  10. There is a peace sign on the label (I am a hippie after all)!
  1. It is NOT an anti-perspirant.
  2. It's not as strong as my old deodorant.
  3. It's  a bit expensive ($6 for ONE stick)
As far as performance goes, I give this deodorant 3 out of 5 stars. I've noticed that I can smell a bit of B.O. if I've been moderately active. If you naturally sweat a lot or plan to spend a lot of time outdoors in a hot climate this deodorant may not work for you. If you spend most of your time indoors, you might want to give it a try. Do I see myself buying again? Maybe, but only if I can't find another vegan deodorant that works better. Kiss My Face also makes a deodorant line called "Active Life" that comes in patchouli. I plan on trying that when this stick runs out. If that doesn't work any better, I will try another brand like J.A.S.O.N. That's my opinion.

Where to buy it:
1. Your local family owned health food store.
