Last week summer marched into fall, not that anyone would know from the weather here in southern California. Most people in the U.S. are putting their sunscreen away for next year, but I use it year-round. For those of you who live in sunny climates like mine this post is for you! This summer I found a whole new line of sun protection products that I love. My new favorite natural sunscreen is by Kiss My Face .
This summer I tried a some new sunscreens and reviewed my drugstore favorites in the post: Sunblock for the Beach. While researching sunblock for the post I came across a number of rave reviews for Kiss My Face brand sunscreen. I searched for it at every drugstore but failed to find their line of sun protection products on the shelves. Finally I discovered that my local health food store, Whole Foods, carries the entire product line. I snatched one up along with a few other natural sunscreens to try this summer. My review? Glowing. In fact I liked the face sunscreen so much I went back and bought the body lotion and spray-on sunscreen. What can I say? I love it!
Natural Sunscreen for the Face and Neck
I wear sunscreen on my face and arms every day, rain or shine. Since the weather is usually sunny here in Los Angeles this is a necessity, but finding an affordable sunscreen that doesn’t clog my pores or make my face greasy has proven to be difficult. Earlier this year I found an excellent, inexpensive, facial sunscreen by Yes to Carrots and wrote about it here on the blog. Now I can add another affordable facial sunscreen to my list of favorites. Kiss My Face Face & Neck Face Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 is a lightweight lotion that contains antioxidants like aloe vera and green tea extract. It doesn’t irritate my skin or cause me to break out. It’s also fragrance free, which I like.
Natural Sunscreen Lotion for the Body
Kiss my face makes a very nice lotion sunscreen with SPF 30. Like the face sunscreen it is fragrance free, but includes in the ingredient list things like green tea, carrot, oat, licorice and cucumber extracts, so it smells pretty nice on its own.
I love spray-on sunscreen because it’s convenient, but my kids run from me when I try to put it on them because it comes out of the can cold. Not this one. The spray is an old-fashioned pump with a special locking mechanism. The spray is room temperature. Sometime, if the bottle has been in the sun, it’s warm. Like the facial sunscreen this contains aloe vera. It also includes green tea extract and vitamin E.
There’s also a spray on sunscreen oil in the line that I can’t wait to try. I didn’t review it but it seems like it would be pretty great too.

I purchased all these products with my own money at Whole Foods. The Kiss My Face “Face Factor” SPF 30 cost $12.99 for a 2 ounce tube. The body lotion cost the same for a larger four ounce tube. I didn’t record the price of the spray on lotion, but it’s probably about the same.
Have you tried this line of sunscreen?
