Green Product Review: Kiss My Face Castille

Green Product review time again. And again, I'm not getting paid. Just to clarify. They don't know me. And they don't care about me. Thankfully the Man cares about me. Phew.

Moving on.

Oh. My. Dear.

I can't tell you how excited this product makes me.

So excited.

Why you ask? Well. Well. Well. Let me tell you.

Because I already love castile soap. You may remember me yammering on about Dr. Bronner's which is coincidentally also a castile soap. I have been using this for just about any and everything for a long time (and this is what I mean by everything: I wash the baby, myself, my face, the floor, my windows, the shower. Get what I'm saying?). What is castile soap you ask? Allow me to direct you to this fine wiki article. That will tell you all you ever didn't need to know about castille. Fascinating.

So I was shopping the natural cosmetic section at Target and I stumbled upon this item:


Kiss my Face castile soap. They call it Peace Soap. I don't know why. Probably because castile soap was associated with hippies. For more on this read here. This has little to do with castile and more to do with how to be a hippie (I like #4, but #8 explains why you should use castile). I think they are trying to appeal the the trendy hippie crowd. Whatever, I don't judge a company for tryin. If it'll get people to care then go for it. Castile is good. It's good you and for the environment. Win. Win.

Impressions: It's not any *different* than Dr. Bronner's really. It's still castile. It still cleans everything imaginable. It's about $10 for a 17 ounce bottle. This may seem like a lot but this lasts for a LONG time. Like a long long time. Also 10% of proceed go to Seeds of Hope (oh it just occurred to me, maybe THIS is why they call it peace soap. Hm. Whatever. As you were.). In any case, you can't hate that.

But there is one little difference... if heaven exists, it smells JUST LIKE THIS SOAP. It comes in like 4 different scents but I'll be a monkey's uncle if I ever buy another one. This one is minty and grassy and just, well, lovely. And all I'll ever need. Like the Man. Only he doesn't smell grassy. Or minty. Mostly garlic-y and like coffee. Sniff. Yum. Ahhhh.

Ahem. Anyway.

I mix this like so (in a spray bottle):

2 cups of water
1 tsp of delicious soap (don't eat it)
2 tsp of vinegar

And I spray everything I can think of to spray with it. Counter. Stove. Microwave. Table. Bathrooms. I clean stuff that isn't even dirty.

Don't come over I might spray you with it.

I'm not even kidding.

Buy this now. I mean you don't HAVE to buy it *now* but I'm just sayin, you won't be sorry. Take my word for it. I wouldn't lie to you.

peace(soap) out,

j
