Kiss My Face Cell Mate Overview
We have to admit to being a little confused about what Kiss My Face Cell Mate is trying to be. It’s basically a facial moisturizer with SPF and some anti-aging ingredients. But in the end, it might perform well enough at either function to be worth a second look. We don’t want to judge too harshly without looking into the details, so look into the details we will.
The idea behind Kiss My Face is a great thing. Mostly natural products made by a company that cares about the environment. All of that is great, but we want something that works too. And we’re sure plenty of Kiss My Face products work quite well. In face, we’ve heard great things about their spray sunscreen. But when we compare the promise of Kiss My Face Cell Mate (enhance skin tone, reduce fine lines, protect skin from environmental stresses, while providing protection from the sun’s rays) to what it looks like it delivers, we’re not so sure they match up.
First of all, the active sunscreen ingredients are Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Octyl Salicilate, Oxybenzone Aqua.
For anti-aging, there are primarily antioxidants in the form of botanical extracts. Some examples are Chamomile Extract, Echinacea Extract, Goldenseal Root Extract, Horsetail Extract, and Olive Leave Extract. There’s also Vitamin E for more antioxidant protection, and some emollient oils like Olive and Grape Seed Oil.
Since it’s a face cream with sunscreen, you should apply Kiss My Face Cell Mate generously in the mornings.

I think we’re going to have to stick with our original hunch on Kiss My Face Cell Mate. It’s a sunscreen, but it doesn’t protect against UVA rays. It’s an anti-aging cream but its only anti-aging ingredients are botanical extracts, some of which are irritating to sensitive skin. Even though good quality anti-aging creams with sunscreen aren’t exactly jumping off the shelves, we think there are better choices than Kiss My Face Cell Mate.
