Almost exactly two years ago, I wrote this review for my beloved Kiss My Face Moisture Shave. For me (and apparently several of you) it's just THE BEST. Period. It moisturizes my skin without being heavy and clogging up my razor, it's got the perfect amount of slip and it never, ever causes razor burn, ingrown hairs, nicks or cuts. It's just the perfect shaving cream for me, and I love love love every fragrance (I was hooked on Key Lime for most of last year, but now I've moved back to Cool Mint).
I have been using Moisture Shave for probably over a decade now and I never, ever waiver from it (try searching "shaving cream" on this blog and you won't find many reviews because I simply never want to use another product). And by now, I know all of the places in my town where I can purchase this product. CVS is my go-to store for Moisture Shave, but I also know that a local natural foods store also carries it, so the other day when I was at this particular store, I decided to pick up a bottle.
When I went to the beauty aisle to grab a bottle, I was shocked to find this:
Kiss My Face Moisture Shave
(retail: around $7, 11 oz)
Kiss My Face Moisture Shave got a dramatic makeover! Well, the bottle shape and size are exactly the same--only the label has changed--so I guess it's not dramatic, but it's a lot different! You can click here to see the old label.
And most importantly, Moisture Shave is now paraben-free. I am embarrassed to admit I didn't even realize the original formula contained parabens, but when I looked at an older bottle that was still on the shelf at the grocery store next to the new bottles, I noticed that the old formula actually contains two different types of parabens.
So here's the big question: has the performance of this product changed? Well I must admit, I was scared when I first tried this new formula because, Kiss My Face, if you mess with my Moisture Shave you'll never hear the end of it from me!
After using the new formula in Cool Mint for over a week now, I can say with a huge sigh of relief that I literally cannot detect any difference between the old formula and the new formula. WHEW!
I don't feel any decline whatsoever in performance, texture or fragrance. In my opinion, the change in formula has not changed the way Moisture Shave works for me one bit, and I cannot express to you how happy I am to report that.
My fellow Moisture Shave fans, be on the lookout for the new packaging and paraben-free formula. I'm sure they'll be hitting your area soon, and you can rest assured that the performance is just as wonderful as it's always been.
PS: I should also mention that this product is vegan and cruelty-free as well!
Are you a fan of Kiss My Face Moisture Shave? Are you excited to see that they've removed the parabens and updated the packaging? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
