Pros:leaves skin very soft and smooth, true lavender scent
The Bottom Line: A good moisturizer that is lighter in texture, but performs as well as any thicker lotion.
While shopping at drugstore.com, I came across a cute little sampler pack of Kiss My Face products called Cheap Kisses. In this little pack were a bunch of trial sized products. Drugstore.com was clearancing off this item and since I love trying out new products, I decided to add it to my shopping basket. Included in the set was a small bottle of Kiss My Face Lavender & Shea Butter Ultra Moisturizer.

Price and Packaging
I just received a small 1 oz. bottle in my Cheap Kisses kit, but there are 2 size choices if you wish to purchase this.
The first is a 4 oz. tube. It stands upright on a flip top lid to make dispensing easy. The tube is a pale lavender and has a floral design on it. This tube sells for $4, If you want a larger quantity, Kiss My Face also sells a 16 oz. bottle of the lotion for $10. The bottle is white with a pump dispenser.

I should start off by saying that I am not the biggest lavender fan. I always think of lavender should smell softer or more floral, but it's such a strong scent. I always think I'm going to like it, but rarely can I find a lavender scent I like. However, I will say that I do like the scent of Kiss My Face Lavender & Shea Butter Ultra Moisturizer. It's a pretty true lavender scent, but it's not as strong or as harsh as some lavender scented products. The scent is not strong on the skin either. It is light and very pleasant.
The lotion itself is plain white and light to medium in consistency. I've been using body butters for the last few months so I've gotten very used to a thick heavy moisturizer. When I poured out the lighter weight lotion, I was a little disappointed and didn't think it would do a good job.
I applied the lotion after my shower and thought I'd probably be reapplying again in a few hours. The lotion felt smooth and not a bit greasy. It absorbed into my skin very quickly. I really didn't expect it to have much moisturizing power. My skin felt extremely soft and smooth though. I was very surprised and pleased with the way my skin felt. I didn't feel dry or tight. My skin felt very moisturized.
What really surprised me was that the moisture did last all day. I didn't have to reapply at all! Even though this is a lighter lotion than I normally use in the winter months, it did an amazing job with my skin. My skin was so soft and silky smooth all day long.
While I still love my thicker body butters, I really like Kiss My Face Lavender & Shea Butter Ultra Moisturizer as well. It does an amazing job and is a great lotion. If you like the moisturizing property of shea butter, but not the heavy greasy feel that usually comes with a thicker lotion, then you may want to check this lotion out.
